The concept of a 'Ballmer Peak' was first proposed in 2007

Their real power is their ability to understand language and context.

...they do exactly none of that.

Custom search engines are limited to PC browsers only. Unfortunately, the mobile versions of these browsers will not let you set up a custom search, so you're stuck tapping on the Web view in all your mobile search queries.

someone hasn't heard of Firefox on Android.

noodlejetski ,

can you set a custom URL, which is required to do what the article is talking about, or do you just pick from the predefined list of search engines?

edit: just checked and nope, you can only pick from Google, Yahoo, Bing, DuckDuckGo and Ecosia.

noodlejetski ,

depends on what you mean by "fixing", I guess. I just resorted to not using Google at all, and use uBlacklist to filter out garbage websites from my search results.

it shows "Dec 16, 1" when I open the link, but the first time I saw someone post it, the date on the screenshot said "May 16, 2024 - 08:30 CEST": https://social.treehouse.systems/@amie/112452636130622939

noodlejetski ,

can't wait for the .ml regulars to explain why this is actually good

noodlejetski ,

bro that's a separate topic from what I'm talking about here bro

noodlejetski ,

SteamOS is based on Arch, which you do not want to use and maintain as a beginner. what matter is the desktop environment, which in SteamOS' case is KDE Plasma, a great choice in my completely unbiased opinion.

the absolute state of capitalism-driven internet in the year 2024: you have to choose a specific option on an internet search engine website in order to search the internet.

misogynistic jerks gonna be misogynistic jerks too, it appears.

noodlejetski ,

yes, it's when an immature jerk on the internet thinks it's okay to insult a woman because she had the absolute nerve to earn money in a way his puritan mindset doesn't approve of.

noodlejetski ,

or does google actually have some of its own

every phone running Google's version of Android with location enabled.

Kagi started as an AI company. and they do a bunch of weird things otherwise, which made me stop giving them money.

noodlejetski ,

it's not private, and could technically read and collect messages sent via e2ee services, FYI.

noodlejetski ,

that applies to pretty much every vegetable out there.

noodlejetski ,

yes, and the same goes for pretty much every other vegetable (and fruit, for that matter) out there.

noodlejetski ,

it can only store cards that use barcodes/QR codes, not NFC ones.

1000+ Firefox for Android extensions now available – Mozilla Add-ons Community Blog ( blog.mozilla.org )

The new open ecosystem of extensions on Firefox for Android launched in December with just over 400 extensions. Less than five months later we’ve surpassed 1,000 Firefox for Android extensions. That’s an impressive achievement by this developer community! It’s exciting to see so many developers embrace the opportunity to...

not sure how well the first two are going to work together, given that the first one clicks through the banners to deny as many cookies as possible, while the second one blocks said banners from loading.

whoa, did someone finally show them that Linus clip?!

What's stopping you from using Ecosia? Your searches could plant trees! ( www.ecosia.org )

Ecosia is a search engine that aggregates search results from multiple other search engines. The ad revenue from our searches funds the planting of trees worldwide. With over 200 million trees planted so far, Ecosia have learned to be fully transparent about their projects, and financials which are available right on that...

noodlejetski ,

they've added an LLM chatbot recently, so I'm sure the energy required to run the queries will offset all the trees they've planted so far in about 4 days.

noodlejetski ,

it used to be on F-droid (not sure if on the default repo or Izzy's), but it appears it's been removed.

After announcing increased prices, Spotify to Pay Songwriters About $150 Million Less Next Year ( www.billboard.com )

When Bloomberg reported that Spotify would be upping the cost of its premium subscription from $9.99 to $10.99, and including 15 hours of audiobooks per month in the U.S., the change sounded like a win for songwriters and publishers. Higher subscription prices typically equate to a bump in U.S. mechanical royalties — but not...

I've ditched Spotify last year when their app has suddenly started draining battery on my phone (and also because of them being so eager to give Rogan a platform). I've switched to Deezer, but I've ran into the same issue I've had with Spotify for a while - even if I download a playlist for offline usage, it'll still try to connect to the internet, so if I was somewhere with poor reception, it'd get stuck on a spinning circle for a minute before giving up and showing me the songs I've wanted to play. I ended my Deezer subscription, rebuilt the library on my laptop, and just manually transfer files to my phone. I get instant access to my music with no delays, with music players that offer much better experience and handle shuffle and queues the way I want to, and aren't a glorified Chrome tab on desktop. and if I really like an album, I'll just straight up buy one. I listen to music a fucking lot (two years ago i was in top 0.2% of my country's Spotify users), and according to some screenshots of my Spotify Wrapped, I've played my artists songs for 1200 minutes, which translates to 300-400 plays at best (probably less than that, given that many of their songs are around 6 to 8 minutes long). given that, from what I've found online, 1000 plays gives artists 4 bucks, I could just buy two of their songs on Bandcamp and pirate the rest of their music, and they'll still get more money in a year from me.

I do miss seamless playback switching between devices, though. it was a really nice Spotify feature... when it worked, that is.

noodlejetski ,

thing is, it didn't do that in the past, or at least it wouldn't be that noticeable to me. but some time ago Spotify introduced a feature that would automatically add "smart" suggestions to the playlist, and it makes sense it requires network access for that. what doesn't make sense is that it still wants the connection even when I kept that feature disabled.

noodlejetski , (edited )

then I dunno, maybe require periodic (e.g. monthly) checks to verify that I've been paying for a subscription, instead of punishing me for having the nerve to try viewing my library while I'm on an elevator?

noodlejetski ,

you're replying to a verbatim quote from the article.

who you see as the top two

so how long until it's revealed that it's actually remotely controlled by underpaid contractors in India?

Internet Website Calls A Person Who Doesn't Know How To Manage Bookmarks A "Power User"

noodlejetski ,

you'll either get there, or to the Boston Molasses Disaster, so you'll learn something cool either way.

noodlejetski ,

I managed to back up my chats and then restore it after flashing a custom ROM (so technically "another phone") that way. it just copies the entire app with all its settings and contents and then lets you restore it to that previous state.
