The Unisys ICON 2 is one of my favourite computers of all time. I learned Turing and C on these, and also spent a lot of time playing games before school. These ran QNX and were my first experience with a Unix-like OS. The Ontario government destroyed the computers and software and they are now incredibly rare.
There are some pictures of one of the few working ICONs here:

I am largely of the opinion that notifications, particularly on phones, is heavily misused. Non-Foss apps will use it to constantly beg for your attention and make you feel like something is urgent. Foss apps tend to give you more control, but I don't like the defaults. Notifications should be used for urgent information. (continued)

This Stunning Chart From EU Transport and Environment Shows Why Battery Electric Vehicles Win
I’ve seen these arguments made so many times, countless times, but humans are not as great as we think we are at comprehending and synthesizing written arguments. They say that a picture is a thousand words, but a picture is better than a thousand words, because a thousand words is often too verbose to make a good point. Just share that chart any time you’re trying to explain to someone why battery electric vehicles are the future.
Which is also why Hydrogen has made sense in specialised applications such as a bus, ferry or truck depot with a centralised departure point vs consumer vehicles wanting to fill up all over the place.
