@nixCraft Huh? What you mean?

The privacy might not be perfect, but the entire population of China can if they want get acces to uncensored internet through them. And Russia. And many many more countries.

Thats not a scam.

@stooovie @nixCraft which is often exactly that?? I mean yes also privasjie, but the main angle and the one I think most people actually care about is watching Netflix shows not in their country etc. so that's basically getting around restrictions

@kura I like how you leave it up to fate to decide if they'll be good or bad mornings 😂

As you may remember from me talking about it once a week, the three things I most want out of a cell phone are

  1. RECTANGULAR screen with NO HOLES OR ROUNDED EDGES ON THE DISPLAY CANVAS

  2. Big bezel/bevel/whatever it's called so I can hold it without activating the touch screen

  3. Headphone jack

I search and search and even for high prices I usually cannot get these things

But the $35 carrier branded temp replacement phone I bought at the Wal-Mart by the airport?

All three

@mcc ITs funny though, there seems to be too types of people; you either love google and all the comfy convenient services, or you hate them xD

I am the former ; all my anime convention photos are in google maps and I literally take time at the end of a day I went somewhere to make the google maps timeline perfect just so I can look back later LMAO

@mcc Well, tbf, it takes one easy click (location on/off) to disable that feature. I never use the stupid assistant and I agree it's not very good design to make it so hard to turn off...

I think it's really stupid that Tim Epic from Epic games is always decrying how evil Apple is with their app store and then in the same breath he approves of bs like this

@oshy @kura But who cares if I can play them? XD especially since native games are usually less compatible after a few years. Try running shogo mobile armor division, either the windows or linux versions, on modern windows or linux. Even 10+ years ago it was impossible. however, the windows version in wine worked out of the box with double clicking.

Similarly, apparently the saboteur from 2009 has problems with modern pc's (I assume windows). In wine it works right away, just have to edit the

@UkeBLCatboy@mastodon.social avatar

@oshy @kura Sure, but that has nothing to do with proton. if they wanted to support linux under proton they would still have to dump the anticheat. So it doesnt matter. But I prefer linux support (official) to be done with proton, because it usually still works in 10 years on linux super mint 69 on my intel quantum core i69 turbo hyper ultra 9000. :D

UkeBLCatboy,
@UkeBLCatboy@mastodon.social avatar

@oshy @kura Plus, some games not working is why I have a dual boot still. I dont boot windows 11 often, but whenever a game no worky worky that i wanna playie playie, I close linux mint and boot win11. :D

UkeBLCatboy,
@UkeBLCatboy@mastodon.social avatar

@oshy @kura Plus of course I play most on my rog ALLY now which of course runs win11 anyway lol

UkeBLCatboy,
@UkeBLCatboy@mastodon.social avatar

@oshy @kura Its both on mine. I wanna play every game whenever I want, and if I have to share all my data with an evil company so be it XD

Entertainment!! :D

I dont play the riot games though. but if I wanted to play forthnight or LOL or valorant or whatever I sure wouldnt let the DRM to stop me. I am far too good a consumer. :D

UkeBLCatboy,
@UkeBLCatboy@mastodon.social avatar

@kura @oshy The ally runs win 11 which many people hate becuase they say steamos has a better handheld interface, but honestly, it works fine for me. And since I mostly use it for AAA games, or at leasft a lot of AAA games, its good it runs windows, since the newer AAA games are some of the ones that still usually has problems with proton xD

UkeBLCatboy,
@UkeBLCatboy@mastodon.social avatar

@kura @oshy I know, which is why its more optimized for touchscreens. but I find win 11 working fine on one too lol

@puniko I saw this in dutch news even and it's good, I hope we wouldn't let the mofo in either, but I don't understand: how is it possible? It's all eu and Schengen. There's freedom of movement in the eu. You don't even need to show your passport when taking the train or anything.

But even if you did - how can they ban an eu citizen? I thought you were bound to let those in.

UkeBLCatboy,
@UkeBLCatboy@mastodon.social avatar

@puniko I'm mostly just surprised that eu law allows for exceptions. It seems like it could be easily misused (imagine what someone like melloni, Wilders, afd, Orbán, etc etc could see as political extremism not to allow someone in their country...)

I mean. Imagine Orbán or melloni or at this point approaching half the eu (Sweden Democrats, true fins, vox, Slovakia now) banning an ngo speaker because their "illegal lgbt propaganda threatens public order and the mental health of our children"

UkeBLCatboy,
@UkeBLCatboy@mastodon.social avatar

@puniko for example. A far right government could relatively easily interpret a law like this in that way.

What I'm trying to say is... it's obviously nice right now that this pig can be dumped out the country, but I'm not sure if it's a nice law to have on the books given the political parties on the rise everywhere from here to Germany from Austria to France and from Italy to Sweden to Hungary to finland, Belgium, Spain, Portugal... everywhere.

It seems too broad/vague.

UkeBLCatboy,
@UkeBLCatboy@mastodon.social avatar

@puniko on top of which it makes good propaganda ("the elite and EU are censoring us!!") so you might only be helping the mother trucker electorally.

So yeah. Not sure to be happy with this or not, I expect we have a similar law then probably since they reference the eu treaty, it probably is like this for all Member States.

@whimsy @mcc TBF, while anbernic makes nice handhelds (and powkiddy too), they only play retro games. My rg35xx sure isn´t going to play switch games!

My ally apparently can, but is 3 times the price so...

UkeBLCatboy,
@UkeBLCatboy@mastodon.social avatar

@mcc @whimsy Sure. I just meant comparing an anbernic handheld to a switch is a bit unfair XD

For retro games, yes, obviously, both are fine (though the switch IIRC can play ps2, xbox, etc games right? But yeah I love my rg35xx for snes, gba, megadrive, ps1, gbc etc etc)

@mcc @whimsy is it on switch or some emulator?

Happy Aromantic Spectrum Awareness Week! Here's the Aromantic flag displayed through VGAPride on my Pentium running MSDOS. #aromantic #aromanticspectrumawarenessweek

@foone I love it ;3 does it do all the other flags too?

But now, show of your skills by playing wing commander on that Pentium (you'll see why when you try... let's just say it's extra challenging)
