2009 Apple: We have created a new OS for your phone and a new concept of Apps that are perfectly integrated and carefully designed for your iPhone's touchscreen interface.

2019 Apple: Just shove the iPhone apps onto people's computers, where they have to use a mouse and keyboard. I dunno. Put it in a window or something. Nobody cares.

@aadil yeah this is so annoying. Privacy is not a binary thing, and the most important thing isn't targeted surveillance but mass surveillance: making it hard to do surveillance on a massive scale is not too hard and everyone should put at least some effort into it.

@Azure Hi! I noticed the post about hiring squirrels I saw on Reddit was from the fediverse so I came to follow you!

Of course you should hire a squirrel for a software engineering position. They're experts in tree-traversal and caching, and they're very well acquainted with kernels.

I always find it weird when sites like Reddit are categorized as "social media".

It's like calling Slashdot social media. Or calling some phpbb forum social media. I mean, technically yes, but come on...

#Firefox hint: Just noticed that if you middle-click or Ctrl+click on the "+" button to open a new tab, it opens it _next_ to the one you have open. In contrast to usually just opening it at the end.

(And yes, I know there is very likely also an about:config to make this the default behaviour.)

Huh. Discourse keyboard shortcuts for jump to work when you press h instead of g. "g u", "h n" takes you to unread, then new.

Can we just not care about Gab please? It doesn't really matter. If you don't agree with it, just block it and don't "feed the troll".
