  1. That would've been fine if they didn't overstate the idea that Apple's ecosystem is the most privacy concerned and overstates that they actually care about the LGBTQ+ community and minorities.
  2. Such a shame for a company with a gay CEO with rainbow Apple watch bands and faces and pride wallpaper. It also found out that the privacy features in iOS 15 will be reduced in China. Basically, Apple bent over in submission to the will of these homophobic countries like an orgy in a penthouse. Bottoms up hunty! I think there are ways to bypass this without jailbreaking but that will include having a US address and a phone number.
  3. People say that Windows 11's taskbar looks like a macOS dock but if you ask me it looks a lot like an Android app launcher (stock) especially during the Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean era.

  5. Can someone please tell me why Windows 10 still can't natively open HEIC images taken from an Android/iPhone, and play HEVC videos without installing a plugin that is a hit or miss? Why can't they just bundle it all?

      Because Windows is an OS built on the concept of legacy software. Also bc licensing HEVC/HEIC for the worlds most monopolistic OS is expensive.

      Android is free and open source but it supports HEVC and HEIC natively since ver. 10. macOS High Sierra and iOS 11 are both proprietary (but with an open source kernel), supports HEVC and HEIC natively. Fucking shit on Windows 10 both me and my mom can't open videos and photos taken from our phones despite having the HEIC an HEVC plugin installed.

      Ran into this problem recently.  There are apparently a lot of freeware apps for at least iPhone that will convert HEIC to other formats.  I assume there are even more for android.

      Dont ever search how they remove them lol. Knowing whats in the store for you makes the whole process a lot less fun.

      I see. On the plus side, my dental X-rays suggest that, as long as I brush and floss well back there, I shouldn't be experiencing serious wisdom teeth issues if I brush them well (aka none of them are growing sideways).

      For starters, not every wisdom tooth meeds to be removed. Many people including me have a wisdom tooth that just came out that only caused minor pain. It’s best to have them checked out first.

      Toothache is one of those things that I simply can’t tolerate. I can sleep through a headache but toothache is something that once kept me up all night. 

  7. Tip to all iPhone users: You can double tap the back of your iPhone to view notifications. Video below.

     

    Take note that if you use a case, it might be hit or miss depending on how thick your case is. It works well on a naked iPhone.

    Thanks Facebook for reminding me of my cringe past

      Windows Phone was pretty awesome until there were none of the mainstream apps. I was a big fan because I'd had a Windows Mobile phone for a couple years. 

      I think the reason why it flopped is because it was too little too late

      App support made a system back then. If you can’t do anything with the phone, then speed is meaningless 🤲

      MS fucked this up big time.

      They made devs rewrite there apps multiple time while offering a very small market.

  10. Because Wikipedia can be edited by everyone. It doesn’t need to undergo any sort of peer-review compared to a textbook which undergoing a panel review or a journal where objectives, methodologies, and others are reviewed.
