That amazes me. Our healthcare system is terrible; I have no idea how people defend it.

I wish. Both at home and in the office, we rely on too many Windows-dependent applications that do not work on Linux.

I run Ubuntu as my main OS since I can kinda do what I want with my laptop at work and obviously control my personal laptop as well, but everything production-wise at work is Windows on the client side, and I still have a Windows PC for gaming for games that require anti cheat that isn’t supported on Linux.

I vastly prefer Linux but Windows is a far lower friction/barrier to entry for most.

I’m curious what do you find horrible about it? I use it all the time and have zero issues with it.

Beeper looks amazing but is waiting list only.

I was unaware that it was supposed to transfer chat history. It’s never once done it for me. I assumed it was like other platforms I’ve used where it doesn’t sync your history unless you backup and restore.

Well that’s great news! I joined the wait-list last week and got an email saying they’d get back to me when I could get access.

On a <5 minute video?

DP has embedded, can be carried over USB-C, allowing for everything to be handled over a single cable, is handled on connector instead of device-internal interface allowing for smaller/thinner devices, DP daisy-chaining, licensing/royalty differences, etc.

I’m here giving it a try since I was using Sync Premium for Reddit for a long time before leaving Reddit. I was initially using the Voyager (WefWef) PWA and liked it a lot but definitely giving this a solid shot since I liked the Reddit one a ton. If I end up sticking around in the Fediverse and in Sync I might drop the $20 USD to remove adds and support the devs.

Yeah it’s definitely a chore to get anyone to use anything other than iMessage. A few friends and I use Signal even though they have iMessage and loved it. But everyone else is hooked to iMessage. Convenience is King in terms of adoption, unfortunately.

I love Dave’s Garage! Great channel.

As someone who has to administer several hundred Windows servers and several thousand Windows workstations in our fleet (alongside our Linux and Mac systems), I was very sad that winget was not as good as I had hoped for. Chocolatey is still far better IMO, and neither is anywhere near as good as apt, rpm, etc.

A password manager is an absolute must, in my opinion! I use Bitwarden and love it.

I’ve used Pihole and Adguard. Liked them both, but ultimately went back to Pihole.

Why? Because I was on Proton personally for a long time but got frustrated with the lack of features and also my wife and I rely heavily on shared groupware stuff like calendars and reminders, so we switched back to Google Mail. Once Proton is a bit more feature-rich, we’ll take a look at it again.

YouTube Premium, Hulu, Spotify. I pay for these family plans. My wife and I use two seats, and our closest friends are on them as well. In turn, we get their Prime Video, Audible, Netflix, Crunchyroll, Funimation, etc. We all just split the cost.

I am super excited to have a Sync client for Lemmy. In the meantime the PWA WefWef is pretty dang good.

If you haven’t already, check out this PWA that is extremely Apollo-like!

Absolutely true, good point!

I love the iPhone hardware. Especially the mini.

But I really don’t like iOS. Or the lightning connector.

Same thing with Macs.

Overall I think Apple makes gorgeous hardware but the software just isn’t for me.

I always tell people the best phone (or best one iPhone vs Android) is whatever is best for them.

My wife loves her iPhone and everything about it, and that’s okay!

Anecdotally, I have to say iPhone seems to have terrible battery life. My wife and several friends all have had the last few iPhones and they seem to be charging their phones all the time. At least every night but often during the day as well. My Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ was amazing. Like 1.5 days of battery. Then I got my Google Pixel 6 Pro and 7 Pro and it blew my mind. I go 2+ days on a charge no problem.

I suppose to be fair I use my phone more like I did my BlackBerry back in the day, whereas they all use TikTok and stuff fairly frequently.

This is really neat! I use Obsidian heavily and have been dipping my toes into more of the LLM/AI stuff that is making its way around and this is a great cross-section of those tools and interests.

I really don’t get why all these social platforms try so hard to just be copies of each other. I like having diverse and different platforms for different things. Once they all started homogenizing, I really stopped using most social media.

And when LinkedIn added their ripoff of Instagram Stories I was like…aaaaand that’s it for me. Why does a professional site need a stories feature?

I happen to like the shorts. I only wish your shirts subscriptions were separate from your regular subscriptions. Otherwise I don’t have any issues with it.

However, I do know a lot of people do take issue with it, and that’s okay!

I love OpenRGB. It’s such a fast and lightweight alternative to Corsair iCUE, which is needlessly heavy, clunky, and resource-intensive just to tell your lights what color to be.
