Seems to me the biggest takeaway from the new airpods is the head tracking.

Apple has been slowly adding in more AR and VR features into its products over time and I feel like the head tracking while useful for spatial audio will also be something very useful for future Apple glasses products.

Dear #FaceBook engineers, please take your time, no rush, and well, maybe it's a good time to feel ill and take a day off.

Anyone else ever suddenly not get bitten by mosquitos? I have been hounded by them for years and now they are just not interested in my blood anymore.

Not that I am complaining, just seems strange.. :twit:

In the darkness, the only thing we have is each other. Please hold on. We need everyone to get through this.

And that’s all I’ll say right now.

I just got told by someone that HIPPA makes it illegal to deny someone service for not wearing a mask. I tried to explain what HIPPA actually was and then they said "yeah and medical records are where the reason we can't wear a mask are stored"

You could almost make an argument about ADA being the reason they cannot deny you service. You would be wrong then too, because they only have to provide reasonable accommodations with that act, which would include carside service or delivery options.

Activision Blizzard cares about an inclusive workplace as long as it means no unions. Or probably all non-bros.

"...the company has retained the services of prestigious law firm WilmerHale, which is the same law firm helping Amazon keep its workers from unionizing. Considering ongoing efforts to unionize game workers, the partnership is a little concerning. "

I don't post enough to social media. I miss you guys. 😀

Mental Disorders - pity post 

I have bipolar disorder and my wife has borderline personality disorder. We have rough days but today was the worst by far.

I am glad I am with somebody who can at least try to understand me and I do my best to understand her but it is not easy.

I wish there was something that could just make us both better but I just have to hope tomorrow is a better day.

I'm no techie, but if "major websites" are down then perhaps the problem isn't with the tech but with the fact that there's such a thing as a "major website"

There's no reason we all have to visit the same ten websites as each other every day, support the little guys

I like the way this place works, where there are lots of little sites and you can choose the ones you interact with, but they're all interlinked on a network, you know, like a kind of inter... net...?

It may only be 78 degrees right now where I live but with the humidity the past few days it feels like you are wearing a warmed wet blanket whenever you go outside. Ick. 🌅😭

Rant 

I am seriously so stressed out about family issues. My wife and her mom do not get along at all, and I am always stuck in the middle being the peacekeeper.

Their issues are so long-standing and deeply woven through their lives that I honestly cannot imagine a situation where this gets resolved.

I would just ignore it, but we rely on her mom for childcare and support for our son.

Neither one of them use this site so it felt like a safe place for this little rant.

Advice appreciated.

I love when I am having a morning poop and suddenly my phones color profile changes and I am like "op, sun just came out"

Been trying to decide today if I want to plant some Carolina reaper peppers and get wild with home made hot sauce this year.
