Jonathanโ€™s antitrust:

๐ŸŽ Require supported sideloading on iOS and iPadOS.
๐Ÿ”Ž Privacy and tracking crack-down, ad regulation.
๐Ÿ“ฆ Split AWS from Amazon, regulations on Amazon-branded products.
๐Ÿ“˜ Close the business. Give everyone their content. Throw Zuck in jail.

 

Seriously, though, you can laugh about what happened today on Twitter, but the hackers could literally have started WW III if they wanted to. Itโ€™s terrifying.

 

So, maybe Twitter isnโ€™t a great place for world leaders to disseminate potentially life and death communication, eh?

 

Nerd confession time! Iโ€™ve not seen a single minute of Dr. Who. Neuromancer is overrated (Snow Crash is better). I like the SmallTalk language. I think Kubernetes is almost always overkill. Bitcoin is dumb.

 

I find it amusing that people sling around the label โ€œSJWโ€ as an insult. Hell yes, I fight for social justice. Wonโ€™t stop until we change the world. Tattoo the label on my forehead. ๐Ÿ˜˜โœŒ๐Ÿป

 

Pardon me while I go watch on repeat until 2020 is mercifully over.

 

If you were ever curious how long your pugโ€™s tongue is, just bring them to Palm Desert. Youโ€™ll find out pretty quickly.

 

Less than one day into this Palm Desert excursion, and Iโ€™m convinced this was an amazing choice. We just watched projected over our pool :)

 

I'm happy to report that the first pot of coffee from the new coffee machine is delightful. Very pleased so far ๐Ÿ˜€

 

Thanks for the feedback, folks. I ordered the Technivorm Moccamaster KBT. Arrives tomorrow. Huzzah! โ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿ’ซ

 

Buying myself a new coffee maker for Fatherโ€™s Day. Iโ€™m debating between a Technivorm Moccamaster KBT and a OXO Brew 9 Cup. Anyone have opinions or other recommendations?

 

Iโ€™m extremely happy that Safari will support the WebExtensions API in macOS 11. Even better, theyโ€™re adding the support in a privacy and security centric way. Bravo! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

 

My little girl made me breakfast. Best cereal and toast Iโ€™ve ever had. Happy Fatherโ€™s Day fellow dads!

 

Remember the iPod and iTunes Music Store? Customers were free to download and install music on their iPods, but the iTunes Music Store was still a runaway success. Same would be true for the App Store.

 

Apple could get itself out of a world of hurt and create a better overall experience if it would allow customers to download and install apps outside the App Store.

 

Made the mistake of looking at Nextdoor yesterday. The number of people gleefully bragging about not wearing a mask is sickening.

Imagine being so obsessed with your political cult that you refuse to slightly inconvenience yourself so that others wonโ€™t die.

 
 

The world is in chaos, but at least we get to watch humans safely get thrown into space. ๐Ÿš€๐Ÿ’ซ

 

I canโ€™t find any of the privacy / terms for YouTube TV on the subject. Will they sell my personal data or viewing habits to advertisers or third parties?

 

Looked at my Hulu bill again. I am seriously considering YouTube TV. Hulu is $21/month more and has had terrible video quality / reliability for me lately. Worried about privacy though...
