So I’ve heard advancement at Google/Alphabet depends on launching new products, not improving existing ones. Which means a lot of continually reinventing the wheel, because crafting truly novel new platforms is actually quite hard.

Is there a stronger word than latibulate? In today’s world I think I could do with it.

Rationing downvotes could help break the groupthink while still providing a crowdsourced method of controlling spam and trolls. Other platforms have systems like this and it seems to work.

I think there have been some Lemmy instances that disable downvotes entirely also.

Just go for it. At the end of the day it’s only internet points.

Is it common for apartments to have shared extractor ducts? I’ve never heard of a setup like this before, and it sounds like both a pain in the arse and a potential safety issue.

Controlling the kitchen fan is probably the easier bit. Depending on the design of the hood, you might be able to control it with a smart outlet or relay. Turn the hood’s switch to always on and control it with the relay. The difficult bit would be sensing when to turn it on.

Cooking will often produce VOCs, and VOC sensors are easy to obtain, but they are also have other sources that are likely in your own apartment. Maybe try using temperature and humidity sensors int the duct to activate the fan when there is elevated temperature and humidity inside the duct?

Not really, the type of encryption used isn’t necessarily a barrier to interoperability.

Quantum computing is developing quickly, and is a threat to conventional encryption methods. There is a good chance we will see quantum computing break many forms of encryption used today in the near future. As such, most companies developing secure platforms are now embracing quantum-resistant encryption.

This isn’t necessarily (another) attempt to reinforce the walls around the iMessage garden, just Apple being proactive about a potential future security danger. Other messaging platforms will be doing the same, if they are not already.

Well, presumably the others work.

The Russian nuclear capabilities are apparently not in great shape either if it’s any consolation.

Research is one thing, getting from concept to production is another. There was a lot of hype about holographic disc formats years ago that was promising capacities from 100 GB to several TBs but they never actually made it to the market.

With the ongoing “death” of physical media playing out in the consumer space, it will also probably be hard for these esoteric disc formats to attract the investment needed to develop them. There might be some enterprise interest if the tech is stable enough for archival use I suppose.

Interesting to see this drop with a press release without much fanfare. Perhaps a sign of sports content coming to Apple TV+? There’s been on and off rumours about them bidding for sports rights.

Disney are also trying to start a new sports streaming service with some other sports networks. It would be great to see more options in the area.

And, most importantly, there’s no Widget.

Not the first Apple first party app to lack widget support. The Home app only just got dedicated widgets in iOS 17.

If you familiar with Ubuntu and its derivatives, just use Ubuntu.

Ubuntu provides a server version called Ubuntu Server alongside the desktop versions if needed, and Ubuntu provides easy access to things like ZFS.

You can always switch in the future if you find you have server needs or preferences the Ubuntu doesn’t suit.

Yeah so I’m told this is one of the positive sides to hair loss. No need for awkward barber interactions when you can buzz it yourself at home.

Well this latest cultural storm in a teacup has got people talking about Golden Syrup, so I suppose their marketing department is doing its job fairly well.
