I tried replacing my Google Pixel's battery myself but ended up breaking the screen along the way. I'm certainly making sure my future mobile devices won't so easily have this problem with home repairs.

Google's is impressive as a user experience and technology platform, but I worry about the lifecycle of game experiences once you can no longer play them.
A positive aspect to Stadia is, since it uses to run, it could help studios put effort into tooling for linux, even in non-cloud gaming.

Nice to see another album from a great composer!

Wasn't happy with the state of my website, so I've now redone it and gave it lots of more relevant info to show.

Every since it came out last month and I stumbled upon it, I've been consistently listening to this album. I think it must be the energy(and catchy musical phrases) in the music that keeps me coming back for another listen.

Dragon Quest XI spoiler Show more

I recently bought and have been playing Dragon Quest XI with steamplay and am appreciating how much easier is it to play mainstream windows games on linux now. While I wish support for the platform was more official than it is, I'm glad to have this level of choice in OS platform without being unable to enjoy some good games.

@Purism
Would like to hear more about how this will work as it's developed.

Reading his tweets makes me thinks he wants an all-in-one fully-documented development stack and is frustrated he has to learn and use multiple separate pieces of software. Not really a bad mark against linux as much as his expectations are different. He does like complaining about it, though.

@kde fixing bugs in file transfer infastructure. Maybe would help if file transfers had an optional checksum to verify transfers.

With recent discussion about Google's change to force Chrome sign-in with Google sign-in, it reminded me about my frustration that we don't have a popular consumer technology company focused around respecting consumers as human beings and not cash cows. So far, seems to be one of the few aiming in this direction. I can only hope one of these companies can do well enough to become an example to other's business because it's hard to see any way to convince the current dominant businesses to change.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who has been frustrated some current software development practices.
