    Chinese company to build a solar array in space

    "we" didn't do shit. A relative handful of politicians and media entities sold us out. People abdicated thinking to the media. And powers that be realized this and have exploited it for decades with increasing shamelessness. Call it out and you're a force of "Evil!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

    Remastering "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" with Machine Learning

    Amazon changed their pages to make the discounted percentage more prominent. And it's working well. So I believe they are inflating prices temporarily so they can drop them and claim a higher number, more than they used to. Especially in a 30-day window and Cyber Monday is within a 30-day...

    Chinese company to build a solar array in space

    I know a virus that addresses this problem. Fatality was high among people who couldn't work due to age or health and low among the Sub 65 able bodied. What a perfect fit.

    Steam Deck officially announced by Valve

    There's some horizontal real estate it could give up without giving that up. It's literally the width of a laptop.

    Steam Deck officially announced by Valve

    Had it for a bit. My main gripe is the size. Horizontally it seem disproportionate to the screen. Overall width is Screen Width x2. The pictures lie. Needs to be about 30% less wide.

    Windows 12

    They couldn't scrutinize interactions between two separate changes slightly out of sync. With large releases they can evaluate the full system and catch all the interactions.

    Paypal Changes?

    Paypal's main popularity is as an anonymizer for your credit card. You often can get disposable CC #'s from your CC company or your CC company may offer their own anonymizer to accomplish something similar.

    Microsoft to Remove Ability to Install Win 11 Pro Without Being Online and Signing in to Microsoft Account

    Does this mean I can register with a MS account, create a local administrator and ignore or delete the MS account I used. Because the option to install W10 with a local was so well obfuscated last few installs, that's what I had to do.

    New EU rule will require all phones and electronics to use a standard charger

    They tried to fix this before. The makers responded by putting in electronics so if their product is not detected, charging is throttled. They should segregate charging from data. Charging could be standardized for decades and decades. The rest no so much. they need a plug that can be...
