I really like the design of the login page, will I try the service? Nope.

They actually don’t specify what part so it’s probably part II (aka. the most well known Pink Floyd song for some reason).

The clip almost makes it sound more like part of the intro to Run Like Hell, though, to my ear at least.

The new font is fine, I guess, but I hope I can keep the old layout/design for as long as possible. The new design is just so out of place in Windows 10.

I don’t think VW, or any German Car brand for that matter, really wants to sell small (electric) vehicles anymore.

VW desperately wants to cancel the Up! in Europe in favour of SUVs, BMW cancelled the i3 a long time ago and only introduced either EV land yachts or giant EV SUVs since then. Mercedes just launched a new Smart EV (which is actually a Geely) but it’s not exactly small.

Long-term plan? I’m more than convinced that most of Musky’s decisions are made on the spot, during bathroom brakes presumably

AFAIK Netflix limits resolution on every browser but Edge

“available later this week” and they didn’t even bother including the price in the local currencies?

Tidal increased their prices recently too, by the same amount. And for that I’m getting the high-quality audio Spotify keeps on promising for over a year TWO YEARS now.

Don’t get me wrong, Tidal still has its own problems but I don’t get why people still choose to have Spotify over one of its competitors.

I mean that largely depends on your headphones and whether or not they (and your playback device) support decent Bluetooth codecs

Not at all from my experience. The App Store generally looks cleaner and more organised.

Unfortunately that seems to be the case with Google products (see YouTube on mobile). Most users might not even care about the excessive ads and Google knows that.

Luckily, there seem to be many alternatives on Android. If Apple was to ad-ify the App Store, you wouldn’t have that many options (outside of jailbreaking and maybe the Altstore).

Did they rip that off of Apollo or were custom app icons a thing before?
