Apple’s Investments
  • Additionally, Benevity could also have an option for donations to pro-Palestinian groups too since the only requirement for registration is that the org be a 501c3 which can be obtained by any non-profit. It’s not like Apple is choosing sides by allowing employees to donate to whichever causes they support as individuals.

  • Nike’s self-lacing Adapt BB sneakers are losing their remote control mobile app
  • The funny thing about this is that the first time I had that moment of realization was when I got the Sphero BB-8 toy from my kids for Christmas. It had a dedicated app. The reason it’s funny is because, out of all the things that I own, it’s the only app-driven one that still works. Sphero just merged it into their main app. Once that app stops getting updated, this toy will cease to work despite everything about it being functional. ☹️

  • An Important Distinction [Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal]
  • What in the fuck are you on about?

    It’s not pride in the lines drawn, it’s pride in the positive things that your community does on a national scale. That’s the point. You take the good things that you see elsewhere and you decide that you want to emulate that.

  • There are multiple ways. Statistical significance is largely used to determine whether a sample size is representative but it’s flawed on its own for some sample sizes as small effects can get exaggerated the larger the sample gets. Look up the methods for determining effect sizes and confidence intervals to determine the best route to go to see what minimum sample size is necessary to both have high confidence in the accuracy of the hypothesis and to ensure that the results have enough statistical power to detect the effect in question.

  • Only in that they want to move it to a more extreme version of what they already perceive it to be. They are not looking to change it based on any meaningful measure. Nationalists are almost always conservatives.

  • Patriotism and nationalism has zero place in society.

    Not true. Patriotism is wanting and seeking the best for your country. Because our society relies on those physical divides, patriotism would actually improve society. Nationalism is deciding that whatever your country is doing already is the best simply by virtue of self-identification. There is no desire for improvement outside of an individual perception so it, functionally, can never offer any improvement for society.

    One is potentially beneficial. The other is cancerous.

  • I didn’t have to. You’ve given reasons for why not to play those games. You’re just pretending like they’re reasons for not paying for them rather than for not playing them.

    And they’re not personal attacks because they’re not directed towards just you. I’ve given plenty of evidence and reason for why people who do so are entitled. A personal attack is attacking the person making the argument. My argument is that people are making excuses because they’re entitled.

  • What's your favorite unintentionally awesome game plus music combo?

    It used to be a given that Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon followed along perfectly with the movie The Wizard of Oz. If you started the album after a specific MGM lion roar, you could play the album on repeat and it would fit eerily close to certain scenes.

    For me, this question comes up because I was playing Spider-Man 2 for PS5 and had Unicorn by GUNSHIP playing. I may have had it on shuffle but the number of times things lined up was crazy good. “Tastes Like Venom” as Peter gets the black suit for the first time, “Monster In Paradise” as he beats the snot out of the Hunters, and “Darkness for Dreams” as Miles and Martin Li enter Peter’s consciousness are literal perfection. The only outliers are the parts of the game, like Howard’s mission, where the song is meant to accompany that section of gameplay. Otherwise, I could play it on repeat and feel some kind of weird connection between the two separate but awesome pieces of art.

    Lemmy, what’s your video gaming equivalent? I don’t just mean albums that are cool combined with a game. I mean a combo that gels in the same way as DSotM and Wizard of Oz.

    Why are there hidden ads in Voyager?

    I just swiped accidentally from the top of the screen and uncovered an off-screen ad in Voyager. What is this and is this disclosed anywhere?

    Edit: Why is this post being downvoted? This is a legitimate bug/issue. What an unwelcoming community…

    Was anyone else in Amsterdam at the Comedy Cafe? First time I've seen this happen...

    At the Comedy Cafe for a stand-up show and this woman in the very front started ignoring the headliner comedian for making sex jokes because she was a woman. The comedian (who handled it expertly) dead-ass had to stop the show to ask the woman what her deal was cuz she was on like TikTok or some shit. The lady then started to complain that the comedian wasn’t very good at making jokes so the comedian let this stupid fool get up there with the mic to explain why she was ok with ruining the show for everyone else.

    I have never seen anything like this. The first 2 comedians were men who made just as many sex jokes (including a whole bit on Jackson Pollack using semen as a painting medium). This woman even participated in one of the bits with the men saying that she was trying to convert her friend, who was with her at the show, into a lesbian by “serving her some clam chowder”. I’m just still in awe that this lady had the nerve to get up on stage and try to steal the mic back from the comedian. It was such surreal iamthemaincharacter bullshit. I can’t believe it happened in real life.
