On the internet, nobody knows you are Australian.

also lemm.ee/u/MargotRobbie

To tell you the truth, I don’t know who I am either. Somebody sincere, perhaps.

But if you ever read this one day, I hope that you are as proud of me, as I am of the person I imagined you to be.

Wow, an Android flip phone based on the Golden Globe winning summer blockbuster, Barbie, now available on Blu-ray and select streaming services, who could have came up with that idea?

I bet it have something to do with the incredibly talented top moderator of !android, whoever that is.

No, those are 3 paintings and one photo of Otto von Bismarck, you silly Billy!

The idea of a doomsday bunker being dumb and mostly pointless aside, a flammable moat is the best defense system they can come up with? In a doomsday scenario, why would someone waste precious good fuel to set a moat on fire for a few days? Instead of using, say, booby traps?

And of course Yudkowsky, the writer of the world’s most boring Harry Potter fan fiction had to chime in with an even worse take.

HMD is making a Barbie flip phone alongside a smartphone for tinkerers (www.theverge.com)

Away from branding announcements, HMD had a couple of more product-focused initiatives to announce. The most interesting of these is HMD Fusion, a new smartphone-style device that HMD is pitching as a DIY platform for tinkerers. Like Moto Mods, but you have to make and program your own accessories....

“Why are you the top moderator of an Android community on an obscure technology forum?”, they asked.

Well, guess who’s ahead of the curve again. ☺️

This is fake, of course.

She didn’t make it, it’s a specialty raw chicken sashimi called torisashi, and these chickens are raised specifically to be eaten raw.

Bags of carrot sticks is my go-to for when I really don’t feel like cooking or eating unhealthy.

Arranging dishes in the dishwasher neatly is only for when there are a lot of dishes that wouldn’t fit otherwise. If there are only a couple of dishes, then it’s whatever, as long as they get clean, it doesn’t matter.

I would encourage you to be more considerate: your daughter is an adult, with her own thoughts and feelings, and her own family. If I were her, I would certainly not appreciate if one of my parent tried to shame me in front of strangers on the Internet over how I load my dishes and threatening to disown me for it, even “as a joke”.

I don’t think Linus Sebastian is worth watching during the NCIX days because he always seem like someone who would spend the least amount of effort and say whatever is popular to get the most amount of views. As you can see in this video, a lot of the criticism he made on the Fairphone are really nitpicking and isn’t fair (heh) at all.

For example, the phone thickness, which he measured with a caliper as a point, is not a metric most people outside of reviewers would care about, especially since most people puts a beefy case on their phone immediately anyways, and size is usually the main tradeoff with modularity.

Or their point about using a Qualcomm industrial chip instead of a Snapdragon chip as a point against Fairphone, when they have previously stated that it is to get a longer time of support.

That being said, having a long, uncut and unfiltered reaction video towards criticism by having the co-founder improv on the spot was not the smartest thing to do on Fairphone’s part. He came off as defensive and completely unprepared in the video and failed to address the criticism effectively (with some easy rebuttals if he was given even a little time to prepare) effectively, which is not great for PR.

The video could be much more effective if they cut it down to half the length with an actual script. It’s a YouTube video, there’s no reason to do it completely live and unscripted.

I think the main reason for a thin phone nowadays is to have it fit in your trouser pocket. (or lack thereof). Having a flip style folding phone (as opposed to a book style) really helps.

Isn’t that widely known at this point? YCombinator was involved with reddit since the very beginning, and they are the ones who got Aaron Swartz involved in reddit to begin with.

Samsung is really only worth it for their high end models, their midrange had always been lackluster compared to their competitions (though improved in recent years), I’m surprised they lasted this long on top, especially since Apple’s SE has been gaining traction in recent years.

Where's Our Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League Review? (IGN denied review code) (www.ign.com)

In a bad-vibes moment, they’re denying a huge outlet like IGN a review code. No matter what I think of IGN in particular (nothing good tbh), that’s not something I can find a real explanation for other than “We made DC’s Gollum and want to avoid bad press as long as we can”.

MargotRobbie,
@MargotRobbie@lemmy.world avatar

Look at the silver lining, at least someone won’t be in the worst reviewed Suicide Squad related media anymore.

A small win is still a win.

@MargotRobbie@lemmy.world avatar

Sigh.

Still “Esteemed Academy Award nominated character actress Margot Robbie” for now.

MargotRobbie,
@MargotRobbie@lemmy.world avatar

You do realize that the strike’s been over for a few months and I have work I need to get done now, right?

MargotRobbie,
@MargotRobbie@lemmy.world avatar

It’s just weird people here expected me to joke about this.

MargotRobbie,
@MargotRobbie@lemmy.world avatar

Also, appreciate the sentiment from the picture, but still annoyed people can’t get my name right.

At least it’s not “Margo with a T” this time.

You shouldn’t use this long term.

The cable strain relief (the ribbed part on the end) is nonfunctional because it is hard 3D printed plastic without any give, it’s a very easy way to wear out your cable at that spot from the concentrated cable strain.

MargotRobbie,
@MargotRobbie@lemmy.world avatar

I assumed this structure is printed as a hollow shell, with a rigid plastic, you can maintain a solid shape, which you can’t do with a shell of a soft TPE material.

I’ve had multiple old charger cables fail at the same spot because of the lack of strain relief.

What could be done to make it viable long term is to print the main body with a rigid plastic to maintain structure and only print the strain relief with a soft TPE material, but that would involve a little bit more complexity and assembly.

Sublinks Aims to Be a Drop-In Replacement for Lemmy (wedistribute.org)

Seems like an interesting effort. A developer is building an alternative Java-based backend to Lemmy’s Rust-based one, with the goal of building in a handful of different features. The dev is looking at using this compatibility to migrate their instance over to the new platform, while allowing the community to use their apps...

MargotRobbie,
@MargotRobbie@lemmy.world avatar

Having a frontend rewrite seemed more critical than trying reimplementing the backend in a different language.

Remember, Lemmy had 4 years of development to iron out bugs, and this is essentially promising to make something in months that has a fully compatible backend to support all the third party apps, while adding features on top of what Lemmy has, and with a better front end with better mod tools to boot, with a complete rewrite of everything.

The scope of this project has planned for is already unviable. Suppose that Sublinks does reach feature parity to the current version of Lemmy, congratulations, the backend or mod tools is not something a regular user is going to notice or care about at all, all they will know is that suddenly, there are weird bugs that wasn’t there before, and that causes frustration.

And this project is going to get more developer traction because… Java?

I’d like to be proven wrong, but I’m very sceptical about the success of Sublinks, because it look like a project that was started out of tech arrogance to prove a point than out of a real need, I don’t work in tech, but the general trajectory of these kind of projects is that “enthusiasm from frustration” can only take you so far before the annoyance of dealing with mundane problems piles up, and the project fizzles out and ends with a whimper.

MargotRobbie,
@MargotRobbie@lemmy.world avatar

I’m pretty sure Nutomic was a Java dev before starting work on Lemmy and learning Rust from scratch. That by itself should already speak volumes.

One-Up projects like this rarely ever turn out well, that’s from my own experiences. Even though this isn’t a popular view, I still think I’m right on this one, we can circle back in say, 6 months, to see if my predictions are right.

MargotRobbie,
@MargotRobbie@lemmy.world avatar

Are you by any chance my new stalker?

No, it was on that AMA you guys did months ago, and I remember things about people.

MargotRobbie,
@MargotRobbie@lemmy.world avatar

But I’ve heard the follow-up to Suicide Squad, “Birds of Prey (and some clown woman)” had great writing, so… does that even out?

MargotRobbie,
@MargotRobbie@lemmy.world avatar

Indeed, that movie is also pretty good.

MargotRobbie,
@MargotRobbie@lemmy.world avatar

Thank you!

Also, that’s esteemed Academy Award nominated character actress Margot Robbie to you!

And as I said there, it is utterly hypocritical for him to sell snake oil to artists, allegedly to help them fight copyright violations, while committing actual copyright violations.
