WebChain of trust, the site only trusts certain attesters (yes this would be really bad for Linux).

EDIT: Used the wrong “of trust”

Gah, I actually meant chain of trust… Oops…

Inkjet printers need to be used regularly, or go through several cleaning prints (which are features of HP printers). That’s not HP scamming you, that’s just how inkjet printers are…

That said, IMO, most people are infrequent printers and would be better served by a laser printer. Toner doesn’t dry out. I have had a brother laser printer for 3-4 years now and haven’t had to change the toner once. Every time I need to print something, it fires right up, and prints it without a fuss.

The thing is since inkjet printers dry out you spend way more on cartridges over time. Sure toner is more expensive, but you but it way less frequently.

Dark_Arc,
@Dark_Arc@lemmy.world avatar

True, but they require a lot of test prints until you get back to an acceptable print quality in my experience

The cheapest brother is $120 (USD) www.brother-usa.com/products/HLL2300D

If you want color, sure that’s more ($250). Still not a long shot from what you paid for your HP, plus that ink (and I’d wager you’d still be going without a single follow up purchase of toner).

For context (per their own product claims):

  • Brother Genuine TN227 High-yield replacement toner delivers rich, vivid professional laser print quality you can rely on for up to 3,000 pages (black) and up to 2,300 pages (color) (2)
  • Additional replacement toner option available for this model: TN223 Standard-yield (1,400 pages black/1,300 pages color) (2)

I wonder how this will work with (or if it will be compatible) with the efforts of Element and the Matrix standard?

It really didn’t… Firefox has been neck and neck performance wise the entire time with a massive arsenal of extensions (and to be fair some of those extensions did negatively impact performance enough to scare people off) and I can’t think of a major feature Firefox didn’t have first or get soon after.

Chrome largely just became a “speed meme” though among enthusiasts and had the backing from Google to win over IT teams.

Patreon having issues again causing thousands of people’s payments to be declined (i.imgur.com)

Many creators mentioning they lost hundreds of their patrons suddenly and patrons confused as to why their payments are being declined. Patreon is such an old company that hasnt done anything to improve their service for years while the CEO makes youtube videos and seemingly nothing with the company. I hate how much of a...

Is it actually better? There are things like open collective and GitHub sponsors too… Choices are great, but the choices aren’t clear

Dark_Arc,
@Dark_Arc@lemmy.world avatar

I mean, does it pay creators better/does it actually do the job of funding someone better? i.e. what’s the advantage? Is it just kind of a meaningless difference or will creators benefit?

Google is still one of the better ones for sure… Apple has gone majorly down the route of proprietary tech, not contributing upstream to OSS they use, not updating OSS they used to regularly ship, and vendor lockin games.

No, safari is based on WebKit (which itself is based on KHTML from KDE). Chrome once upon a time was based on WebKit, but it’s now based on a fork called blink.

In any case, this is more of a “will Apple implementation what Google wants implemented?” question. Same with Mozilla being in that list, they use a completely independent engine for Firefox that shares no lineage with Chrome.

I think as long as Lemmy handles this well in the software, it doesn’t really matter(?)

Framework Laptop 16: our exclusive hands-on - theverge.com (www.theverge.com)

“Reviews of the original Framework Laptop 13 were a little skeptical; my colleague Monica repeatedly pointed out that an upgradable laptop’s value “hinges on future support.” But in 2022, her headline was “promises kept.” And this year, as Framework shipped its third set of CPU upgrades for the Framework 13 while...

I wonder if there will ever be Nvidia or Intel options.

If you’re wondering who but don’t want to read the article:

Their report urges federal agencies to investigate and potentially go to court over the wealth of information that H&R Block, TaxAct and Tax Slayer shared with the social media giant.

I get this perspective, but I think it really down plays the lack of control we have over foreign products.

Like, if a US company put a bunch of employees in place and then had them simultaneously break into people’s houses, the US could arrest those who orchestrated the problem.

If a Chinese company did the same thing, sure we can arrest the individuals (if they’re still in the county), but we’re completely powerless as a nation to do anything to those that started the problem or those that escaped the country before we found out what they did.

Like the normal concepts of what’s legal are just out the window, everything is legal when you’re talking about nations vs other nations.

Data is one of those things that you don’t know how it’s going to be used against you until it is. If somebody is going to have that data, I’d rather my own government have that data vs a foreign government… Harming one’s own citizens isn’t a great strategy to get your way, but harming another’s citizens is quite effective.

The other thing I’ll note is this isn’t just about what they collect, it’s about what they put out/promote; i.e. their ability to shape (or distort) their image. I think lots more people would be concerned if they saw the Chinese govt creating rally halls around the country with high turnout, even if “they’re just putting on plays” in those places.

Dark_Arc,

So borderline free Chinese labor hasn’t enriched US corporations? The waters for cheap oil and sugar – those ended really well for the country on the receiving end right? What about the British spice trade and India?

Sure you can collect power within a nation and become a sort of “god within” that nation, but that’s nothing compared to nation vs nation conflict. Some of these people don’t even have clean running water.

IMO, I think it got memed to death. I never understood how import marketing was until I as a Stadia user saw how much bad PR it had with people who’d never tried it (and were unwilling because of what they’d heard from other non-users).

There’s a reason Tim Cook didn’t wear Apple Vision during the presentation lol.

Dark_Arc,
@Dark_Arc@lemmy.world avatar

Yeah you’re right, there’s a good case that multiple factors lead to Stadia’s failure (not to mention interest rate hikes).

Home charging is already practical (overnight); it’s the primary means people with electric cars charge them.

Dark_Arc,
@Dark_Arc@lemmy.world avatar

True, though I’ll maintain most people aren’t those people, even though they might feel like they are
