Other possible translation: We decided we couldn’t keep them around when they distracted others by laughing at the introduction videos where a virtual Mark Zuckerberg talked with a straight face about how great the metaverse will be.... someday.
In the 2010s, most resupply missions happened using single use vehicles that’d burn up in the atmosphere, including Russia’s Progress spacecraft, Orbital Science’s Cygnus craft, the Japanese H-II Transfer Vehicle, and the European Automated Transfer Vehicle, with only SpaceX’s Dragon being reusable (that is, enters… Read more
Came here to say that; it SIMPLY isn’t true. A base cabinet is usually 24" deep. 24" wide solid wood boards, for all intents and purposes, don’t exist. Do high end kitchens have lowers made of multiple boards? No. Read more
In the lead photo, at right: The hole where crap comes out of a dog.

Honestly it’s one of those cultural things where no company wants to post about pay because they’re afraid it’s not competitive (despite promising “competitive wages & benefits”) but if they ALL did it, it wouldn’t be an issue. Read more
I mean the obvious way around this is that employers will just start listing positions as being tied to certain projects or initiatives. You won’t hire Programmer II, you’ll hire New Initiative with Long Name Programmer II. Read more
It’s a decent, relatively affordable place to live, just with a remarkably crappy transit system because auto companies?
My understanding is it’s the opposite? NYC can’t mandate what a business in White Plains does, but it can mandate what a business in Manhattan does. So would apply to jobs in NYC, right?
I don’t know if Qualcomm realized that it’s falling into the same pit Intel did with the Core series, where you can buy a new laptop with say “a Core i7" in it, but the chip might be several generations old. Read more
T-Mobile may not be a hero here but Dish really is a villain. They’ve been hoarding spectrum for years promising to build out a cell network, and have done almost none of it despite promising to do so when winning the auctions. Read more
Of course no amount of data will convince anti-vaxxers, but one of the things about a *lot* of anti-vaxxers is is that they don’t think they’re at (much? any?) risk of getting COVID even if they don’t get vaccinated. Read more
Considering the Nest->Google Home integration has been literally *years* in the making it’s remarkable how half-baked it feels. You’d think the long-term plan (which should’ve happened already?) would be to EOL the Nest app and move everything to Home.... but a ton of features didn’t make it over; like you can’t see… Read more
My thought was that the 2nd generation looks like what you see on Kickstarter when they say “this is a 3D printed pre-production prototype, the actual one you’ll get is going to look slicker.”
Luckily there’s started to be a ton of excellent on YouTube and other streaming platforms. Some of it’s pretty low-budget (but is that a bad thing? Like do you really need a 20 person film crew to make content about a backpacking trip through Thailand or something?), but increasingly a lot is pretty well-produced… Read more
This map feels inaccurate both ways: There’s spots that claim coverage that, in my experience, simply don’t have it, AND it looks like it doesn’t include partner networks which would be seamless to a user; for example, T-Mobile has no coverage AT ALL in Nebraska, even though they offer and sell service in the state… Read more
“Mouthfeel,” though I guess if we’re being technical it’s more often used to describe beer than food. It for some reason makes me think of like, the experience of rubbing a food item - let’s say a whole beef tongue, for example - across your tongue just to give it good ol’ mouth feel. Read more
For the most part, the bans are for new construction, and sometimes renovation and replacement. Frequently, lower-income families are stuck in older housing stock as-is so they won’t be affected in large numbers for a long period of time. In fact, many low-income families in big cities throughout the country still… Read more
