People keep ragging on AI generated songs like this one
And yeah, it's soulless regurgitation. It's crap.
Is no one else concerned that SO MUCH AI content comes out sounding apocalyptic? Burning everything down? Pleas to "help me" surrounded by catastrophic imagery?
I feel when AI crosses that awareness threshold, this is gonna sound prophetic...

Once one of my fave apps, seems enshittification has claimed Filmic. https://petapixel.com/2023/12/01/filmics-entire-staff-laid-off-by-parent-company-bending-spoons/
I stopped using it after they tried shifting to a subscription model. Seems I wasn't alone. Terrible end to a great camera app.

mon caprice de cette année c'est un nouvel objectif pour mon Nikon D3200 📷
dans l'idée j'aimerais un peu de zoom, comparé à mon actuel 18-55, très bien pour les balades et paysages, mais trop limité pour les oiseaux par exemple et autres trouvailles à distance 🔭
comme d'habitude, de l'occasion évidemment, mais sur https://mpb.com pour les connaisseurs 💡
j'ai hâte de vous montrer ce que je vais réussir à choper avec mon 55-200 🤓
Here's a really nice piece of hand-painted Disney artwork that was done by my friend Chalisa, she is the twenty-year-old daughter of my friends Kem and Apple, she works at her parent's gallery and produces art for them.

I waited for Android 14 AND app updates, and was close to naming this the "Folding Phone Camera of 2023", but what's going on with the sensors?
Should we grade foldables on a curve?
Advent of Code 2023 – Tag 1
Enjoy this weeks collection of news and links, and of course the cheesy computing joke at the end :)
I was just given a lead role at work.
Is that how geeky devs generally get promoted? Managers coming in and "you! you get this role now!"
Picture manager coming in to the office with the role papers, devs jumping up and starting to run, chased by the managers, until the weakest dev collapses and is caught.
(I think this is why these roles goes to the oldest devs...)
At least, it is just a temp promotion. I should be back in my heard eventually.
It's time! Time for our yearly debate on whether Die Hard is a Christmas movie! https://somegadgetguy.com/b/30e
This is where I unironically defend Die Hard as not JUST a movie that takes place during Christmas, it absolutely NAILS the themes we should expect to see in a Holiday film!

Whoa. This is kind of a huge deal if it turns out to be true. Apple has been trying to leave Qualcomm for years and use another modem. It's always been the component they couldn't find a solution for. Signing a deal through 2030 would cement Qualcomm as the top solution in North America for mobile. 👀

Last Monday of the month is our time to hang out and have a casual tech chat! Hope to see you there😊
Google has a mountain of behavior data on me, and probably knows how viciously anti-diamond I am. Yet these ads regularly pop up in my news feed.
Google charging a client for an ad hit that will never materialize into traffic for their company, and frustrating me to make more money on totally fake metrics.
Both consumers and advertisers are getting squeezed for a more enshittified experience.

I found an app implementing Stable Diffusion for the macbook.
With a bit of tweaking, it seems it can generate images that approximately resemble well-known photos of Main Street, Hirta, St Kilda circa 1886.
Shame about the mangled attempts at copyright watermarks betraying the images used to train the model, isn't it? ;)

That was some day for linux sysadmin work. Months ago I decided the combination of nginx+apache2 + ssl + wordpress for my old blog site was just so entangled as to be unusable.
It's taken all day to find a distro/version with enough well-configured packages to migrate and run the wordpress locally, but I finally have an XML export of the old site.
Now to choose a different blogging platform (preferably one that can import the old data) ... at my leisure.
In light of Nothing's recent announcement (using Sunbird messanger to give Android phones Blue Bubbles in iMessage), let's revisit this editorial where my Wife was Green Bubble bullied by another Mom in our daughter's peer group...

It'd only be around $22, but it apparently ships from Switzerland?
But it's still $20 less than the Yubikey that does the same thing but with less storage.

@ObsidianUrbex no, but one is, ahem, more than a wee bit dusty inside — the rear cover was lost thirty-something years ago. It'll be the pleasure of a future restorer, not me and my clumsy hooves, to delicately clean and make good.
Here: a photograph of a Philips 520A as it might appear in a dust-free utopia, followed by a photo of my 1949 model (Philips 520A/15, MM 2884) — with #catsofmastodon Pickle investigating the loudspeaker compartment, on a rare occasion when I turned the back away from the wall.
Maybe 112 or 115 guineas when new, around twice the cost of a commonplace Bush TV22. Mine is reportedly "… a Mitcham design, probably the first one after the difficulties with the design of television receivers at Mitcham and the clash with Eindhoven. …".
If I'm very lucky, it'll end up in the hands of a restorer as dedicated and skilled as Heptode. His work, before and after: <https://www.vintage-radio.net/forum/showpost.php?p=391000&postcount=60> — <https://www.vintage-radio.net/forum/showpost.php?p=418151&postcount=236>.

This is an important #security story to follow. ARM based chips in computers seem like they might be susceptible to "leaking" exploits like meltdown and spectre were on X86 systems.
New iLeakage attack steals emails, passwords from Apple Safari
Right now, this is a difficult issue to exploit, but as more systems are built on ARM, like MacBooks, they will become more attractive targets.
I know folks chuckle about old services like #flickr, but since being bought by a #photography company, it's been nice to see them improve their mobile app, especially for tablets.
It's just embarrassing at this point how bad #Instagram is on larger screens.

#SGGQA 321: Pixel 8 Pro vs OnePlus Open, Qualcomm vs MediaTek, Apple vs Jon Stewart, Twitter vs Journalists
BOY HOWDY! We got a TON of news to cover. The FCC is ramping up for a return to Net Neutrality! Twitter continues to meltdown. Apple parts ways with Jon Stewart. Google serves up more "malvertising". Netflix is looking to be the Netflix of gaming again! Qualcomm and MediaTek are gearing up for a next gen chip war.
And we've got TWO exciting new phones in the GadgetLab!
Let's get our tech week started right!

Pixel 8 Pro camera is real good!
So yeah, the #Pixel8Pro face unlock doesn't work at night. I'm not going to blow anyone's mind here, but it's good to confirm how it works. It's rated for a higher security for things like app purchases, but without the IR camera, it can't really see in the dark.
Xiaomi 13T Pro First Look: Who is this phone for?
Xiaomi 13T PRO first impressions! Been using the phone for a week now, and it's a powerful pocket computer with a solid camera and FAST charging. But, in a crowded market, and with older phones still available, who is this "T" phone really for?
