something arrived today, definitely a holy grail for me...

a Weather Star 4000! this is the box that at one point, among other things, generated the Local on the 8s graphics for the Weather Channel

tired of microsoft teams telling me "HEY! Your microphone is muted!" every time I click on my mouse.

The way they have positioned what could be called a "Prius Pickup" is very interesting. Focusing on the efficiency of hybrid gas mileage to the utility of being able to power a variety of equipment off the truck's battery. I'd be very interested to see how this messaging sticks with the typical F150 demographic.

Someone made a "face depixelizer" that turn a low-res pic of a face into a high-res one and of course the first thing they did is try it out with Doomguy and honestly that's pretty impressive but also hilarious

I really don't like the Mustang's exterior, but the Mach E has such a satisfyingly minimal heads-up display. πŸš—πŸ”‹

There's a show on Netflix called "Babies", but honestly it's a great show that illustrates what academic research is like in a very approachable way. There should be no reason why you couldn't turn any phd dissertation into an hour long show like this.

I guess getting booted from the apple store was a great marketing event for Hey. I even looked at them.

Overall, looks neat if you are the kind of person who actually gets email. I would use it on my business card but never use it as an ID to log into a site.

In general I still think it's worth more to set up an email catch-all so you can give each service a unique address. Still loving protonmail, and as a bonus, even `` is shorter than ``.
