Considered Harmful Edition

  • I tried Chunibyo when it first aired and bounced off after a single episode.  Giving it another try now, and yes, it's a lot better than my first impression led me to think.

    I've been watching a lot more anime lately because I've been working with Ethereum, and it's horrible beyond all imagining and I need something to reset my brain afterwards.  Even Golden Time, which frankly was kind of bad.

1 It's probably reasonable to assume Huawei is owned by the Chinese government, at least effectively so.

2 Which is unfortunate because they make good hardware.

3 So I keep hearing.  I was going to buy a P10 when they (briefly) came to the US, but decided to pass when Verizon decided to stop selling them--I wound up getting an Essential instead, and then replaced it with a Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s, which is an excellent flagship, and like half the price.

4 I don't think Huawei hardware is all that good. I think I mentioned in your comments how my daughter accidentally factory-resetted my Huawei M3 tablet, because the mainland idiots re-used hardware design of their phones, which does not work so well on tablets. I have to say that the M3 has a good screen, but I can't wait for it to become obsolete and amortize its significant cost, so I can replace it.

5 Also, Alex Gaynor is a deceitful demagogue.

6 I'd put that factory reset thing down to UI design, an area where Huawei are just about aspiring to mediocrity.  The M3 has a great screen, great industrial design, solid specs and battery life, decent sound, and a UI that is markedly worse than stock Android 4.0.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
