Saw another article about Steam Deck that said "Proton-based Steam OS"

Come on, how hard is it to get this shit right multiple years after Steam Deck released.

I know, I know, it only annoys me because I've covered it all since before Proton was even a thing.

But, it feels like no matter the website, the editors are just not actually looking up what these terms they're writing actually mean. It's the attention to details that bother me.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to load up my Proton-based SteamOS device to play same games 😆

This is pricey (and glass, really??), but I kind of love the idea: some benefits of a fitness tracker & smartphone for kids, w/o the smartphone. Plus a Tamagotchi!

My oldest kid is a bit young for something like this, but Internet access freaks me out—yet I’d love for them to be able to contact me if they need. Other options in this space are clunky/ugly, so it’s refreshing to see something this polished here.

Hi, most annoying person you've ever encountered here! I noticed this toot you wrote in 3 seconds while pooping doesn't line up with every experience I've ever had. This is extremely harmful to me, the main character of the universe.

The gaming industry is nuts.

Just got an email about an event for “news announcements. and content updates across 150+ titles”

150 titles!?

I’m no marketing guru but…that seems like an overload that will just cause lots to get swallowed up.

The online backlash to amuses me tremendously. I started building a similar open-source (non-AI, local only) thing for a month ago.

It would take screenshots and create a timeline video of your day. It also enabled searching across your past usage of the computer.

The inspiration was an open-source macOS app called "Rem" which does the same thing.

Ah well, I guess I'll abandon that then, as it's going to be seen as toxic thanks to .

@popey i think there’s a big difference between what you would do (and i assume open source?) that everyone could see and audit and see it’s entirely local, to one fed into an AI black box controlled by MSFT

Hilarious. Some random ass paid-for blue tick on X said Microsoft were looking to buy Valve, and loads of people fell for it. News articles even got written on it today.

Totally false, it’s news from a leak that was from 2023 (that i wrote about back then https://www.gamingonlinux.com/2023/09/microsoft-keep-your-filthy-hands-off-valve/) and is not a thing that’s happening.

This is the problem with paid “verification”, people see the blue tick and think they’re trustworthy.

Oh wow, the RPS team are clearly throwing some shade around with their recent articles after the IGN purchase 😅, after Alice was laid off.

Multiple one-liner articles following a "best Alices" gaming article. One article was just "buy my old chair" lmao.
