Is there really no way to use an emoji (not a Memoji, an emoji) as a sticker on #macOS #Messages? You can do it on iOS, but there is no such button on the Mac?

I want to see absolutely no sensible and practical advice here. What programming language should I start vaguely and in a chill way teaching myself if I just want to experience something fun or elegant or interesting in and of itself, assuming I have no goal for using it to do anything really (outside of learning)

I think Toyota was right all along.

It’s an unpopular opinion among EV purists, but I think hybrids will reduce a lot more carbon emissions than BEVs, for the simple reason that way more people can switch. Even without access to charging outlets, hybrids are far more efficient thanks to their regenerative braking. With access to outlets, they are as good as EVs within their electric range, which will account for most of the daily commutes of their owners, and all with far smaller batteries and better costs of ownership than BEVs.

The way to eliminate emissions due to personal transportation is not to put people in BEVs. It’s to eliminate commutes and massively invest in (electrified) public transportation.

@jbond @ukuku I think the Prius Prime was their first in 2012, but they have PHEV versions of many vehicles now. I think the “Prime” brand indicates plug-in.

@richardknott Sure, but what’s the opportunity cost? Prius Prime drivers weren’t ever going to buy BEVs anyway. How much more emissions would they have produced with ICE?

It’s the perfect vs the good argument. I think hybrids and PHEVs will reduce more total carbon faster than BEVs, because more people adopt them, even if their individual reductions aren’t as dramatic as BEV.

@drahardja@sfba.social avatar

@Disputatore I’m claiming hybrids and PHEVs are more efficient than ICE cars, which is what these folks would be driving if they didn’t buy hybrids. And because far more people are able to afford hybrids and PHEVs than BEV, the total carbon reduction due to hybrids would be greater than BEVs.

@Holberg I suspect you’re not going to see a convertible EV soon because of the aerodynamic drag penalty on those 😄. Convertible PHEVs though…maybe some day! It‘s also more plausible to have an open-top experience for city cars because aero drag matters less at low speed, but I suspect that’s not what you’re looking for.

You may be glad to hear that the Tesla NACS charging standard is becoming more widely adopted, so non-Tesla cars can charge at Tesla Superchargers too. Or you may not be glad to hear about it, because non-Tesla owners will now be paying Tesla to charge their cars…

drahardja,
@drahardja@sfba.social avatar

@Bryan It doesn’t matter how clean the electricity is if people cannot use EVs.

Long-distance charging infrastructure is terrible, public charging sites are too few and broken most of the time, and most people live in apartments that don’t have overnight chargers. EV sales in the US has stalled because of these reasons. I’m glad folks can buy hybrids and PHEVs instead of pure ICE vehicles, and I think it’s actually going to net us a greater carbon reduction than a push for pure BEV.

BEV may become a no-brainer in the future, but not today. And we need carbon reductions today.

Is there a reason why the Photos app doesn't work with Time Machine in the same way that iPhoto did where you can open iPhoto, then go into Time Machine to restore individual photos you've might have deleted by accident?

With Photos, you need to restore your entire library from Finder + Time Machine so good look knowing where said individual photo was last copied over to Time Machine?

This reinforces my suspicion that is facing a cash flow crunch due to flagging sales. They’re in a vicious cycle right now of price reduction to goose sales, which reduces revenue, prompting more price reductions etc. This bodes poorly for the company.

@nemeciii I agree that Tesla is not competitive against Chinese EV makers in China but that has not yet become a factor outside China. The US is still the world’s largest auto market (not EV—autos) and EV adoption in general has stalled here even without Chinese cars in the market.

Unlike salaried personnel, “layoff cycles” doesn’t exist when it comes to hourly manufacturing personnel. Manufacturing layoffs indicate flagging demand for whatever they are making.

As for “returning to normal” prices: why would Tesla willingly reduce their prices instead of raking in profits? The only reason they reduced prices is because the market forced them to; because sales are falling.

I really dislike Biden.

I’ll still vote for him, but that’s only because the alternative is worse. https://journa.host/@w7voa/112327052317688581

Apple was never going to "save" VR.
We've spent the last decade giving Apple an unlimited runway of speculation and hype to bring a face computer to market.

https://somegadgetguy.com/b/3si

Instead of doing a better job earnestly and fairly covering the tech along the way, properly educating consumers on what these things can do, now even Vision Pro can't live up to the media's imagined narrative of Apple.

Apple did nothing to earn a DECADE of media support for XR products, but think of all the projects that were criticized for not living up to some kind of imaginary Sci-Fi standard.

"Wait for gen 2 or gen 3 instead!"

Techies expect everyone else to lift off like a helicopter, but Apple gets UNLIMITED runway...

@SomeGadgetGuy @mropret You got it wrong, they are EMBRACING standards, then EXTENDING them.
