You can’t just make words mean whatever you want. “End-to-end encryption” has a specific definition, and trying to massage it simply because it’s inconvenient is a real problem.
No one should use Zoom anymore. The company is profoundly dishonest. Apparently there’s at least one full-featured open source alternative. Hoping to give it a try soon.
Similarly, Missouri’s GOP governor, Mike Parson, argued that rather than government action “it is going to be personal responsibility” that wins the struggle against the virus.
Red states are screwed. The science is very clear. Slow the spread until a vaccine is available. Make people stay at home.
That is also the cutoff date for the Dark Sky website and API, meaning other weather apps that use Dark Sky data will need to look at other services to populate their apps.
Shutting off the API is a real dick move. Apps like CARROT, which is a fantastic weather app, rely on that data.
Update: Looks like the API will stay active, but they’re no longer accepting new users. That’s fair. Also, a friend of mine speculated that this could eventually become WeatherKit, which I find highly intriguing.
In recent days, Republican governors in Alabama and Mississippi have resisted calls to enact more forceful mitigation policies. Polling data suggest that Republicans throughout the U.S. are much less concerned about the coronavirus than Democrats are. According to a recent analysis by The New York Times, Trump won 23 of the 25 states where people have reduced personal travel the least.
I wish this were not a thing, but it's definitely a thing. I've seen it with my own eyes.
GHOSTS V: TOGETHER IS FOR WHEN THINGS SEEM LIKE IT MIGHT ALL BE OKAY, AND GHOSTS VI: LOCUSTS… WELL, YOU’LL FIGURE IT OUT.
This music, like the previous Ghosts release, is haunting. Some of it bears a resemblance to work NIN did for the Watchmen soundtrack, which was also moody and, at times, anxiety provoking. I suspect this work was spun out of that soundtrack. There was similar overlap with Ghosts I-IV and the soundtrack to The Social Network.
Enjoying this very much.
With the cardboard testing, which was done three times, the study says the data was “noticeably noisier” than with the other surfaces tested, and it “advises caution in interpretation.”
Ugh. Relevant but also awful.
Curate your incoming.
Stay off Twitter.
Do the work instead. Whatever needs doing most is better than panic.
Being up-to-date on the news is a trap and a scam. Five minutes a day is all you need.
Excellent advice that I sorely need to follow.
We wanted to do a little something extra for everyone who now finds themselves working from home, or needing to take time off work, to encourage everyone to stay creative and positive.
This is very cool and very thoughtful. I’m thinking about giving it a try, though I’m admittedly better at writing than extemporaneous speaking.
Earlier today, Moscow-based BBC journalist Will Vernon noticed that Apple appears to have quietly ceded to Russia’s stance on Crimea by redrawing national borders on the Russian version of its Maps app and labeling the region as “Russia.”
I don’t want to be compared to those conservative nuts that blew up their Yeti coolers in a fit of perceived betrayal, but between this and Tim Cook cozying up to Trump in exchange for tariff exemptions, I’m getting close to planning a move away from Apple’s hardware and ecosystem if they don’t change course soon.
