It seems like it’s a Linux based feature phone. Interesting…

For fiction it depends how far along in the book I am when I lose interest. If it’s still early on and I am not feeling any connection to the story or characters then I can drop it. For non-fiction I can drop it at any point I lose interest.

I’m a tech conservative with one foot in newborn paranoid

I don’t really listen to music when reading but I do when writing creatively. I usually pop on a playlist to match the mood of the scene I’m writing. That way when I get to the occasional pause to think I’m still in that zone.

That essay outlined the issue really well. I would say overall its the wealth inequality which has widened over the years that is mostly to blame. If people were able to afford homes or rents then the glut of those properties would already be occupied. Instead the already wealthy can continue to generate wealth by using the convenience of the platform.

“Thank you for your cooperation” I’ve always thought that sentence sounded very dystopian

He would rather exploit his workforce and make the conditions more stressful than just layoff people directly. That’s sleazy as hell.

I know as far as the ideals or political thought far left and far right are different. I guess I am thinking more in line that people on either extreme can become radicalized and land on “the ends justify the means.” So while the far left may say oppression is bad, if they become radicalized they may end up doing oppressive things to those that are not of the same political thought. If someone on the far right is radicalized and already believed in oppression then they just go full force on it. Just a thought.

That’s really good idea. Whenever my “dumb” TV bites the dust I will keep that in mind

I never knew the name for it, but I always thought that if you go far enough in either direction you end up at the same place

I hope the solar cells are actually efficient enough to charge it

Is that a real timeline? That’s crazy

Damn, that’s terrible news for journalists who are actually trying to investigate government atrocities

I’ve been doing that for the last 15 years…and I live in the U.S.

I mean it can lead to inflation, but this round is not only through wage increases. However, the Fed is disproportionately targeting their approach to hurt working class rather than the rich

That’s just awesome, lol
