@conservancy does this conference have a mastodon account, or is it you?

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.

@mdszy so your landlord has a webservice? My landlord is just a family who moved to Europe temporarily. Best kind of landlord.

@mdszy interesting. I use Capital One 360 (used to be ING), and I just have them mail a check around the 20th of the month.

@jlamar too many "native" apps are just wrappers on some shitty javascript web framework. (I don't really believe there are front-end web frameworks that aren't shitty, but I admit I haven't given any a chance in a while.)

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.

@tmo I'm imagining it was Vertigo.
At my old downtown SF apartment, some guy had a soundsystem on their motorcycle and would always (ALWAYS) just be blasting Vangelis Chariots of Fire. I mean, even at top volume, that's not really music that "blasts". Normally I hate that shit, but I couldn't honestly categorize chill cinematic background music as noise pollution.

@62 cool. For even faster JavaScript, don't use JavaScript.

@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?

@uxintro @ChrisWere ah! As an exercise bordering on masochism, it makes sense!

@uxintro @ChrisWere why on Earth would you do this? I hand coded a simple site for years. It was a waste of time.

@jlamasfripp aye there's the rub. For in this sleep of REST what mails may come, must give us pause.
