Does anybody happen to have contact with Ernest outside of Kbin? It's a little concerning that his last update over a month ago was that he was going in for a medical procedure and that he'd only be gone for a few days. I hope he's doing alright.

Roku TV bricked until agreeing to new terms of service

See title - very frustrating. There is no way to continue to use the TV without agreeing to the terms. I couldn’t use different inputs, or even go to settings from the home screen and disconnect from the internet to disable their services. If I don’t agree to their terms, then I don’t get access to their new products. That...

Eh, the built-in speakers on most TVs these days are all pretty trash across the board. You pretty much need a sound bar at the very least, these days.

I don't think drawing Hitler mustaches on your face and going classroom to classroom throwing up the Nazi salute is just "kids being kids". That seems like a real dangerous means of sweeping Nazism under the rug.

I feel like that trope doesn't really ring true these days, as most of the "general purpose" instances are pretty moderate. Back when Lemmy was still just a small handful of instances, that was definitely the case, but I think the wider adoption has balanced things out a bit closer toward center, overall.

Unfortunately, it still happens even here on Lemmy. I don't think we see it as much because most communities here have far fewer mods than adjacent Reddit subs on average, but occasionally you'll find a mod here who thinks they know better than their community and does whatever they feel like.

Android Microphone Snooping (lemmy.world)

So I had a verbal conversation with a coworker yesterday and now I’m getting fed very specific ads. No possible way it’s accidental. I have most of the microphone access to apps limited, I have Google assistant turned off and no VPA setup in my home. I use a Oneplus 9 pro, does anyone have recommendations on how to further...

Crazy that they wrote an entire article for one guy's conversation about motor oil. Sounds like a really effective use of resources that is very real and not made up.

IBM is still just as active, just not in the consumer markets anymore. They're big into industry research and more specialized computing these days.

"But she's so empowering!" the fans will say, nevermind the fact that she only seems to "empower" fraudsters.

I also recommend Pluto.TV for anybody who enjoys Plex's live TV. They've got a similar business model in place (watch for free with regularly-scheduled ads, like normal TV), and some different content sources (as well as some overlapping sources). Like Plex, it also doesn't require any account to watch. It also has an app for most TV platforms.

It's time to cancel reddig33.

I like to imagine that this whole event was the result of the first truly rogue AI that generated its own plans for an event, sent out the necessary emails to hire the people to put it together, and everything in secret under its creator's nose.

It probably isn't that, though. Because even AI wouldn't fuck up this badly.

You have -1689 points on Kbin. And Kbin doesn't federate downvotes from other instances, which means you likely have a score an order of magnitude lower if you were to factor in federated downvotes.

I don't think it's just a matter of the "trigger words" you're using, as much as the idiotic ideas that you're constantly espousing with those words. And the fact that you're clearly intentionally trying to farm downvotes, so your "point" is nonexistent.

I will absolutely blame the voters, because it'd literally be their fault. That's how elections work.

Lauren Boebert's son was arrested over a spate of thefts as his mom tries to convince voters to look past her chaotic family life (www.businessinsider.com)

You have to get Beetlejuice tickets for that.

One of them spends a lot of time hypocritically ranting about "family values" and Christianity. The other doesn't.

It's not really that hilarious at all. They're two completely different situations. But you know that, you're just pretending to be ignorant.

A buddy of mine gifted me a copy of Helldivers 2 the other day, so I've been spending some time spreading Managed Democracy across the galaxy. Mostly going back and forth between Helldivers and The Finals lately.

I use Kbin, so my experience is a little different, but do Lemmy instances not have default communities? If not, that seems like a pretty good addition, but if so, then I think that experience is going to be largely dictated by the individual instance you're signing up with.

They're already intercepting every packet that leaves your modem before it even reaches your ISP. They've got your data before Lemmy even has it.

Has anyone else gravitated back to *facebook* a bit?

i can’t believe i’m saying this, but i’m finding myself enjoying facebook more. the UI and design feels vintage early 2010s, the choice of reactions is nice vs just liking or upvoting something, you can sort the replies by chronology / recent / best instead of being forced to read blue-check morons, there’s an incredible...

I miss what Facebook used to offer in the earlier days. I miss being able to keep up friends and family and having a central place for everybody to just share things. It was nice for a while. It was also just nice having an account where I felt comfortable putting my face and name out there; I know that may seem kinda weird to most people, but there was something weirdly relieving about having one place where I could just say "This is me" without using a screen name and feel right about it. Facebook used to be that place for me.

Then once Facebook started to monetize every pixel on my screen and every post on my feed was just a link to something I couldn't care less about or trying to sell me something or infect me with something else, it became unbearable. The last time I logged into Facebook, I scrolled for probably five whole minutes before I was able to find a single, actual post written by somebody I actually cared about. Everything else was just links, freebooted videos, or algorithmically-boosted content designed to suck my attention away from the thing I actually wanted to look for.

I'd honestly love it if there was a better Facebook-like platform on the Fediverse. Or even not on the Fediverse, just a place where I can actually keep in touch with the people I know instead of just internet strangers. Since ditching Facebook, the internet has definitely felt like a much lonelier place for me.

Shame, that one was easy enough that even my mom was able to watch her shows. Hopefully the Hydra regenerates quickly.

How did the wakeyuppymen know what time to start wakeyuppying, tho?

Nah, I don't take instructions from shitstains. I'll comment how I want, because I'm not even arguing with you in the first place, I'm just pointing out that you're a xenophobic asshole. That was never up for debate to begin with.

I am not sure how to interpret the word "moral values"

No shit?
