If you're not paying for the product, you're not a customer, your are a cow.

A cow. On a farm. Your job isn't to have a say in how the platform is run, it's to stay in your pen, make milk, and make more cows.

Random thought: a map isn't an app, it's a platform. Or at least it should be.

How's these days? If I wanted to use the same map, with the same view state, for navigation/pathfinding, exploring areas, planning routes, finding venues, displaying hydrological data, weather measurements, calculating height profiles and a bunch of other things - can I do that? Or make something that does that?

I hate appification of things. I want a software toolbox, not software experiences.

Why nobody is putting current years on calendar/clock widgets anymore? Windows tray, Android tray, lockscreen, even watchfaces.

Someone who is never 100% sure what the current year is.

Is there a list of quality with good support for devices (particularly with / pens)? Or perhaps even dedicated for them?

Microsoft Store isn't exactly the best for discoverability of *good* software, and I'm sure it doesn't cover everything.

"Influencer": the only honest thing about this job is its name.

It's like when USA Today was like "to prove we need to sell your data to make a good website and convince you whiny Europeans that GDPR sucks we will serve you a version of your website that's bland and boring" except the site they served was lightweight, fast, and free of all the nagging bullshit news sites have nowadays

"I got into Starfleet to study moss."
"I joined up 'cause I love beaming."
"Thanks, Boimler. If we're going out, at least it's remembering that Starfleet isn't just about kicking enemy ass."

"Hey, I wish I could be on a ship that's exploring and solving science mysteries instead of nonstop fighting."
"Like on the D?"
"Damn, do I miss that ship."

Money quotes from S02E02:

"I'm sorry, I gotta be honest. I didn't join Starfleet to get in phaser fights.

I signed up to explore, to be out in space making new discoveries and peaceful diplomatic solutions. That's boldly going.

And you know what? I'd love to be in a string quartet. I love that when Riker was on the Enterprise, he was out there jammin' on the trombone (...)

That stuff may not seem as cool as what you guys do, but it's Starfleet all the way."


Remind me, why copying data over the cable from an Android phone is such a PITA? Why the connection cannot hold for more than few minutes? Why on Earth the phones don't present themselves as bog standard removable mass storage?
