Three Wall Street Mega Banks Hold $157.3 Trillion in Derivatives – That’s $56.7 Trillion More than the Entire World’s GDP Last Year (wallstreetonparade.com)

At recent Congressional hearings on federal bank regulators’ newly proposed rules to force the largest banks in the U.S. to hold more capital against their riskiest trading positions (so that taxpayers aren’t on the hook for more bailouts), the banks and their sycophants holding Senate and House seats made it sound like...

I rarely go to such places but the quality of service tends to be above average.

Pinetab 2 is pretty good for everyday tasks. Just need to get a wifi dongle.

Children ARE a burden but entitled parents are a bigger burden.

I know far more people who have children who regret than those who don’t have kids and regret it.

Gettin real goddamn tired of dogs

I like dogs like I like toddlers. It’s fun to hang out with other people’s for a while, but ultimately they’re annoying, loud, and make a mess. I feel like in the past 10 years or so, dog owners have become increasingly convinced that everyone thinks their slobbering, untrained mutt is god’s gift to everyone, and expects...

I love dogs but when I was NYC I couldn’t wrap my head around why there were so many dogs in Manhattan. My dogs need space and room to run around which isn’t something Chelsea Village et al. are known for.

I know that Pine64 had one in the works but so far it isn’t consumer ready.

What’s true in Italy isn’t true for the rest of Europe. Most people don’t use SMS because they already pay for data and Signal/Whatsapp/Matrix/Telegram do messaging better than SMS.

Came to make this exact point.

Conservatives typically do not like discussion or debate because it forces them to look at the status quo and ask hard nosed questions. Try the religious forums - Islam, Christianity or any communities focused on nationalism. I imagine that’s where such people hide.

Also, European conservatives are usually just as bigoted as their north American brethren. The major difference is that they may be less religious.

I use GrapheneOS but have zero contact with the so-called “community”. The project itself is awesome but as with many Linux/OS projects a lot of the people around it aren’t all the way there.

01011,

Can you expound on that statement?

It sounds as if the organizers were too quick to take the $650 from attendees and those willing to pay were very eager to pony up the cash in the hope of networking.

01011,

It seems to be more active than the first time that I made a lemmy account. I’m looking forward to some of my favored subreddits making the switch.

Android (on Pixel devices) has gotten better. iOS has largely stagnated over the past 5 years.

The article has a somewhat misleading title. The author’s main gripe is with Samsung. Samsung =/= Android.

Tinder Now Letting Rizzless Sad Sacks Pay $500/Month to Message People Without Even Matching (futurism.com)

If you get a message from someone you never matched with on Tinder, it’s not a glitch — it’s part of the app’s expensive new subscription plan that it teased earlier this year, which allows “power users” to send unsolicited messages to non-matches for the small fee of $499 per month....

01011,

You have it wrong OP, Tinder has become official in its online pimp status. Those who have been using Tinder to sell sex are the ones most likely to be charged.

Impartial coverage from the BBC, when?

01011, (edited )

Bandcamp and Boomkat. I really wish more artists sold direct to consumer. I have no interest in streaming. I think it’s stupid that while storage gets cheaper they keep pushing streaming.

Whatsapp turning into WeChat should make Signal and Threema look even better.

01011, (edited )

Some folk do. I’ve managed to convince at least 10 of my friends and family to install Signal and/or Threema.

01011,

I know people who prefer Threema simply because they know what their revenue model is. Everyday I find that another person in my contacts has joined Signal. I don’t communicate with too many grannies besides my own two, both of whom have Signal installed on their phones ftr. My circle clearly isn’t your circle.

What are some FOSS programs that you think are a far better user experience than their counterparts? (sh.itjust.works)

I used Plex for my home media for almost a year, then it stopped playing nice for reasons I gave up on diagnosing. While looking at alternatives, I found Jellyfin which is much more responsive, IMO, and the UI is much nicer as well....

newsboat and mpv are awesome. How is nsxiv better than sxiv?
