About the Chrome logo:

A few minutes after posting, I realized I should have edited that too.

If you like, I can repost it with the Brave browser logo.

At least, Chrome is not Reddit.

90-Year-Old Woman Who Contracted Coronavirus in Seattle Nursing Home NOW RECOVERING! by RickC-137 in news

Only a quarter of 80-year-olds are said to die from coronavirus, which means that three quarters recover.

I wonder how high the ratio is at age 90.

YouTube is secretly re-encoding videos: This same 2008-uploaded 720p video had a higher quality in 2011 than 2019! by Handroid7 in youtube

[–]Handroid7[S] 2 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Thank you for the comment.

I couldn't see a difference.

Compare at 00:07 when Mario jumps into that vertical water.
The 2019 version has noticeably more artefacts than the 2011 version.

It's odd to compare 2011 RealPlayer with 2019 YouTube-DL.

I don't think it should make a difference if downloaded at the same time. (I don't know whether YouTube-DL existed back in 2011, but both should be downloading the same information if functional at the same time.)

But websites are getting more and more sophisticated.

Apps can obviously have far more capabilities due to access to device features (for the good or bad), but now, many things, even games work entirely reliably in the browser, thanks to HTML5.

I didn't know Saidit has an app too.

Also, thanks alot for being so committed to free information. Reddit sadly isn't. They sitebanned me for legitimately criticising a misbehaving moderator (Ani625).


But what are features only the app has? (and not the mobile website)

Non-replaceable batteries: Why they are a terrible idea. (The fastest-failing part of a mobile phone has become non-modular.) by Handroid7 in technology

[–]Handroid7[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Side note: The Galaxy S5, S4 Active and the Sony Xperia V are IP67 water resistant with ordinarily removable back covers.

I reckon that non-replaceable batteries allow for tighter water resistance. But that can be compensated with, like I said, thicker/multi-layer rubber isolation.

Maybe it would require the phone to be just a few millimetres thicker. But I couldn't care less. I care about actual functionality and practicality.

[–]Handroid7[S] 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Actually, water resistance and replaceable batteries in combination are possible.

It just needs a thicker rubber isolation and maybe a back cover held tight by screws (good enough for me). Tadaa!

Also, one could design it in a way that the removable back cover doesn't cover the entire back side of the phone, but just the battery and maybe the accessory pins that some older Samsung phones (e.g. S4, Note 3, S5, Note 4) used for wireless charging and S View cover (S4 used hall sensor for that) accessories.

A few months ago, Reddit administrators apparently exposed the GPS location of a Reddit (/r/JusticeServed) user, who posted something from, guess where, the Reddit app.

They should have started their own separate movement instead of disowning and hijacking an existing movement's purpose.

I am sadly starting to see a pattern of formerly trusted and established organisations going corrupt.

Nercoposting is just a thought-terminating cliché.

Depending on topic, a thread can be relevant long after the original post.

Totally agreed!

“Archiving” is just an euphemism for automatic thread locking.

This is SaidIt's biggest advantage.

I already suggested Poal.co to optionally allow “extended lifespan threads” (reasons mentioned in post there).
Maybe, they will implement it soon.

Apple also brought us the notch screen.

Now, many phones have distorted screen shapes.

Many new phones have design flaws that were invented by crApple.

The problem is that they have intoxicated the entire market with their ideas.

Poor modularity, poor functionality and planned obsolescence.
