Will companies stop trying to emulate Apple, please! I have these "true wireless" earbuds. Each has a single button. The number of things each button does is literally ridiculous. This is not simplicity. Apple's single-button design is a failed experiment.

I'm totally geeking out over Stranger Than Fiction w Will Farrell from 2006. I watched it years ago but missed basically everything. Lots of weird aspects that make statements with multiple meanings. My fav is the statement that the writer is caught between the publisher and reader, both showing up as jokes that just aren't funny, making impossible demands. But that's just the tip of the iceburg. Keep in mind: Dustin Hoffman always takes his roles very seriously; everything is significant.

I'm totes going to grab a Galaxy Tab S6, and prob one for my mom when the LTE version hits. Any other android tablet users in the fediverse? They say we're a shrinking demographic.

@conservancy I sometimes dream of an app market, fully Librè, with subscription access supporting development on all apps and, of course, the market itself. Is that a model you've heard discussed before?

@travisfw The ability to set some toots as private is a nice upgrade from Twitter's "everything is always public" thing.

yesterday I found myself quacking for a surveillance van toy for my toddler. (no results.) treehouses and cars are boring. how about stimulating parents' imaginations for co-play?

I am not a fan of the columnar mastodon web interface. Would like a url for just federated timeline, for instance.

when I type in your handle in the mastodon.technology search box

Children are torture. I want sleep so badly I literally feel like crying. I am sustained by cuteness alone. My vasectomy will potentiate sleep, though it may take years. 😭

@travisfw It is pretty nice, isn't it! It's a new custom made font for Red Hat but it's (naturally) open source and freely available! You can find the font on Github @ github.com/RedHatOfficial/RedH and read more about the new font @ redhat.com/en/blog/new-look-sa. Hope this helps!
