To be fair most people put a case on their phone and don’t upgrade every year either. I bought an S8 after launch when the price had come down some and I plan on replacing it next year, around 3.5 years of service life.

This. The technology needs to be guided, and the people they affect need to have a voice in that guidance process. The most pernicious force in the technology space (and indeed at the leadership level of all of our institutions) is that everything is run by mush-brained capitalist vampires who only see the bottom Read more

Nah, it’s just about sports, just like all the other recent posts about sports.

This car is the most handsome among the series of abominations that is this nascent class. That’s not saying much, they should still all be driven rigorously and off-roadedly up to the caldera of an active volcano and tipped inside.

Sorry, but this mischaracterizes his base in a maybe dangerous way. His support is split between these people (who for aesthetic reasons are easier to villainize) and well-to-do suburbanites who love tax cuts, deregulation, and free-flowing oil.

I don’t know if there will ever be a replacement for the established credit card system because even talking about shopping comparative rates skips the part where you “need” a credit card to fully participate in the system that dominates American life. Many people get credit cards not because they can afford them but Read more

The Matebooks are really solid--I got last year’s pro model and it can go head to head with anything out there. My only complaint is that it runs hot and the fan gets loud.
