switch homebrew, question 

hey how aggressive is nintendo about running recovery mode homebrew/what ability do they have to detect it

all I want to do is follow yuzu’s guide for dumping my own games and saves

technology (modern folding phones) 

almost like they're not currently reliable enough to be a primary device for most people

i do at least want to try one out at some point, since they're so different from the boring (but reliable) iPhones I'm used to or the really cheap Motorola I bought for apps only available on Android - but absolutely cannot justify the cost for what would have to be a secondary device

unless i guess if i found a deal on a z flip 2 or surface duo 1

technology (modern folding phones) 

thinking about how the biggest proponents of foldables i know - podcasters, tech influencers and the like - all give off the same message

"this is my Fun phone. it's more Fun to use than any other phone I've used. I'm more productive when I use it too"

followed by the inevitable
"here is my backup phone (likely also a flagship) for when my Fun phone breaks or the camera decides it doesn't want to work"

covid testing psa 

evidently there are a bunch of fraudulent COVID testing sites in the Seattle area (and elsewhere) just harvesting personal information from their victims and giving them all negative "results." be careful out there

cryp/to, platform lock in/inertia 

but still

i find myself wondering what happens if birdsite decides to go full crypto - if users would migrate off it in the amount that would be needed

or furaffinity if it got bought out again and introduced a No Fucking Thing marketplace, would people finally move away from it then? or would the fact that the new sites popping up get really fucking weird about taurs keep everyone still on FA

cryp/to, platform lock in/inertia 

what has been on my mind a lot recently is despite how much furries dislike crypto, everyone still uses paypal for invoicing - even though paypal dedicates an entire tab in the app to crypto now

part of this is that other options are running out (kickstarter pivoting their entire platform to crypto, i think patreon and ko-fi are both experimenting with it - and the latter is dependent on paypal anyway, apple pay cash is hardware limited and not international)

A law requiring recipes to include prep steps in the "cooking time" figure

E.g. no more "cooking time 5 min" with "Step 1. Yesterday, you should have—"

the well organised nature of conversations about (game) in the discord server of a podcast about it

vs. the complete anarchy of a furry telegram group for (game)

it's absolutely wild to me that people somehow manage to miss the message of every game of monopoly going from "a player has a monopoly" instantly to "maybe if i get sent to jail or sleep in my car in a free parking lot, i can live long enough to make it to my next paycheck" while the one rich player's like "oh haha jail, that means nothing to me"

TLDR monopoly is an indigenous board game replaced with american properties wrought into a nightmarish structure of unregulated capitalism and greed that strangles all joy and life from those cursed to exist in it, at which point the patent was stolen from a poor woman by rich men and now belongs to hasbro, with a monopoly consisting of more than 1,500 children's entertainment brands

also there's a "millennials" version that makes fun of children born into the system Monopoly itself illustrates

dysphoria, product recommendation request 

does anyone have any recommendations as far as epilators go

i just want to be able to look in the mirror without getting mad at my body's ability to grow shit facial hair

*sees mutual get nerf gun*
suddenly finding that advertising from 26+ years ago is working on me and that i want whatever the modern equivalent of a ballzooka is and an ❗️shirt

corporate VR/corporate augmented reality 

and sometimes i do want to take a photo in situations where i don't have my phone on me briefly, although that in particular has some obvious issues too

i feel like apple would probably do alright on the privacy angle, but also I feel like they'd try and put censor bars over anything vaguely rude or nude

corporate VR/corporate augmented reality 

there are a lot of things where the wrong company doing it would be incredibly creepy, but they could also be decent accessibility features

i can't remember faces at all, so some way of sticking up a nametag for people that i know would be helpful (but creepy if it's querying facebook for everyone)

i have hearing issues, so it'd be nice to get live subtitles for the world around, but i'd also want a hardware way to disable the mic

corporate VR/corporate augmented reality 

i will say that as shit as corporate VR looks - as someone that joined in with dunking on walmart's 2017 concept when it got reposted to birdsite a few days ago - i'm a bit more excited about the prospect of corporate AR, providing facebook isn't involved in any way shape or form
