  • Apple won a battle to lose the war.  (500ish)

    An interesting examination of the recent ruling that suggests Apple is incapable of doing what is needed to avoid further antitrust cases - which they will eventually lose.

  • Another look at the Apple ruling.  (MacStories)

  • Ethereum sucks.  I don't mean the ecosystem or the inflationary nature or the weird cult followers or any of that, I mean the technical implementation of the blockchain.  It's fucking garbage.

1 I am still stuck with using Firefox (Older version, before it went totally garbage.) most of the time because of one single feature which not even the mighty Edge has.  However, when I have over hundred links in most of the folders of my Favorites, I like to be able to scroll through my Favorite sub-folder, click a link or turn to do something, before going back to scrolling through the folder from where I was last.  If I click a link or turn to do something else while scrolling through my Favorites in Edge, I have to start the scroll from the beginning the next time around.
