A while ago I inherited an iPad Pro. It’s powerful, but like all Apple recent devices, it has only one port.
I understand the (damn awful) reason behind a single port for enforcing overpriced proprietary connectors and wireless gadgets.
But one port only for a "pro" device? No audio input nor output? No HDMI, not even a second port? Forcing users to plug a tangled mess of bulky adapters for basic usability?
This is just terrible, disrespectful, ultracapitalist design.
@halcek Confidenciall - confidently fine with confidences
Confidentily - confidentially confident, that is, confident with confidentiality
Doubt stems not from a lack of confidence, but an ability to question.
The only time that good #thoughts that are truly forgotten are those which we repeatedly and relentlessly choose to ignore even as they come back, because in the moment that we know about them they seem to us easy enough to remember, since they use our own personal way of speech and thinking to get
formulated in the first place, so to us they have a very apparent
Any theoretical remembrance can only again be fragmentary, that is, have an inkling of profoundness which will be striking and at which we can, again as the first time, pause and dwell.
Because the recollection of concepts, or ideas’s fragmentary, these fragments need be freshly elaborated with insight, to gain a reproducible significance, a solid differentiating factor for themselves.
Sometimes, two versions of a thought leading to the same conclusion can be in conflict...
Review of The Player of Games by Iain M. Banks
Read even if you disliked the first Culture series novel.
* classic sci-fi premise (space emperor elected through an ultimate board-game competition)
* relatable protagonist
* works on both sociological & psychological levels
* story is well paced & nicely wrapped up
* would be more interesting if empire wasn't sadistically evil
* using masculine pronouns for 3rd alien gender feels like a wasted opportunity
@halcek Probably the separation between local/global... timeline, meaning you just get one user created continous stream of posts...
With every lightbulb lost, so many others will light up in its place instead, that we are bound to feel that not a single one is definitive here, that not a single one, but somehow all of them, are what encapsulate what was a single original.
It's amazing to me how much software is already available on the Librem 5.
- Some of it optimized for touch screens.
- Some partially optimized.
- Some not yet optimized, but functional.
The power of Free and Open Source software (and Linux) at work. :)
A person can observe themselves as if from a different viewpoint with some real curiosity, with real building anticipation and interest upon the process, the journey of their growth.
