It won't always be called X. 2027: Elon buys a domain registrar. 2031: Elon buys unicode. 2032: Elon allows unicode in domain names. The same day, Elon adds an "Xtreme X" emoji to unicode (it sort of looks like it's spinning, xtreme style), and registers the domain.

Infrastructure control. Transportation, communications, banking, etc. He's going after it all. I'll never touch anything he's even remotely involved in.

Are you talking about those security questions? So dumb. After having days-long trouble getting my internet fixed because of them, I started treating those as additional passwords, generate the answers with my password manager, and save them in the notes section of the entry.

Billy Mitchell has surrendered (perfectpacman.com)

Billy Mitchell didn't win his defamation lawsuit against Twin Galaxies. Not only was Billy not in a position to get a financial settlement, Billy's cheated Donkey Kong scores were not reinstated(as he's claiming), and his claimed Pac-Man score from 1999 is also not on the main scoreboards. What had happened is that the score is...

That's not an "idea", he's literally just trying to copy authoritarian states where the people are stuck with the "influential 'everything' app" power concentrating garbage, like WeChat, so he can have that power too.

You can't coherently convey whatever you think Elon was on about because, whatever he was on about, was complete bullshit designed to make him look smart to the people dumb enough to buy it.

That all changed on a single night in his early teens, he says. While grappling with questions of faith and identity, he was struck by an epiphany that kept him awake until dawn and reshaped his future: God is not real, there is no free will, and we primates are pretty much on our own.

Is there a place to verify these posts are real without actually touching Twitter (currently known as Elon Musk's X)? I see there's blue checkmarks on them but I have a feeling a really cleaver hacker could fake those in an image.

jtk ,
@jtk@lemmy.sdf.org avatar

It's not a solution to the problem they say they're looking to solve. It's more government control, it's big brother, it's everything they say they don't want, so it's obviously exactly what they wanted.

most models require modified electrical outlets and cost hundreds of dollars to install. That’s why startups like Channing Street Copper and Impulse Labs are working to make induction ovens easier to install by adding built-in batteries that supplement regular wall-socket power.

Surly the batteries will end up costing way more than the outlet installation plus you'd be stuck with yet another proprietary battery that will hard/impossible to replace yourself. No thanks.

You can use all of them, or none of them, at the same time.

What's the catch? AFAIK, you can't even do that on desktop without manual reactivating the add-on every restart.

Edit: "you should be aware that you can't use it to install unsigned add-ons. Mozilla believes they are security risks"
There it is. What's even the point of this? If you have to sign it, might as well just publish it. I want to run my own plugins without a central authority. I'll worry about my own security.

YouTube Video Recommendations Lead to More Extremist Content for Right-Leaning Users, Researchers Suggest (lettersandscience.ucdavis.edu)

YouTube Video Recommendations Lead to More Extremist Content for Right-Leaning Users, Researchers Suggest::New research shows that a person’s ideological leaning might affect what videos YouTube’s algorithms recommend to them. For right-leaning users, video recommendations are more likely to come from channels that share...

Isn't that basically the whole point of the algorithm? Isn't it behaving exactly as advertised?

You don't even have to feed the algorithm to get those videos. I have my history turned of so I don't get any suggestions on my home page anymore, but when I'm watching a video, the suggestions on the side invariably have a handful of right-wing idiots. You can sometimes see how YT might think they're related to what I'm watching (usually retro tech stuff), but they never actually are. I rarely see the same misfires with the left-wing videos. My guess is the brain-dead right-leaning viewers put that content in the high engagement buckets so they just get suggested more often. I don't think left leaning people engage much with the left wing media because it's usually boring politics that don't infringe on basic human rights, and we already know how bad the right is just by seeing them suck with our own eyes, we don't need to be told about it over and over to believe it, or to get bullshit "gottcha" material for water cooler conversations. We also already see how the politicians on the left suck in their own special ways without needing anyone to explain it to us. So what's the point in investing in a video when a few words, or none at all, will do the trick? Algorithms target idiots with unfounded rage, it's just that simple, I wouldn't even call it an algorithm, just basic number crunching.

Anyone who didn’t leave when old.reddit.com stopped being the default isn’t going to leave over any other redesigns. They couldn’t possibly be worse.

I’m kind of looking forward to that. I don’t have an account there anymore, but I still check old.reddit.com because it’s quick enough scan the homepage on my phone when I’m waiting on something. Dropping old would help me break that habit very easily.

It really is bad. I ask myself why I even bother every time I look at it. Looking at r/popular now feels more like what looking at r/popular/rising/ used to be, mostly reposted garbage with only the occasional interesting topic, but even those I’ve usually already seen somewhere else.

Most mainstream brands don’t like to say they’re beyond willing to be associated with offensive stuff as long as it makes them money and they can pretend they aren’t associated with it. Google knows what they’re doing and they’re more than happy to take the bad press, which won’t effect them in any meaningful way.

Judge finds evidence that Tesla, Musk knew about Autopilot defect that led to killing of Florida man (www.reuters.com)

YSK that SLS, an ingredient added to most commercial toothpastes, causes canker sores (askthedentist.com)

I learned about this many years ago and the difference after I started using only SLS-free toothpaste was night and day. I used to get canker sores any time I would bite the inside of my cheek, hit my gums with the hard parts of my toothbrush, etc., and this completely stopped a while after I switched to SLS-free....
