  • Is a $25,000 Electric Car Even Possible? - YouTube

    Summary: > This video discusses the possibility of a $25,000 brand new electric car. The speaker, Marques Brownlee, argues that this might be difficult to achieve due to the high cost of batteries, a key component of electric vehicles. > > The video starts with the dream of many electric car fans: a brand new electric car for $25,000. This would make electric vehicles affordable for most people. However, the speaker points out that batteries are the most expensive part of an electric car. So, in order to bring the price down, manufacturers would need to find ways to cut battery costs. > > One way to achieve a lower price point would be to make a smaller car with a shorter driving range. The speaker discusses the Tesla Model 3 as an example of a currently affordable electric car, albeit at a price point above $30,000. Other options on the market right now, like the Nissan Leaf and Chevy Bolt, are all priced around $40,000. > > The speaker then goes on to discuss the Fiat 500e, a new electric car with a starting price of $32,000 and a driving range of 140 miles. While he likes the design of the car, he acknowledges that the interior feels cheap due to the cost-cutting measures taken by Fiat. This is because making a car cheaper often means using less expensive materials. > > The speaker concludes the video by posing the question of whether a $25,000 electric car with good range will ever be possible. He acknowledges that battery technology is constantly improving and getting cheaper, but he also believes that inflation will likely push the price point up over time. The video ends with the speaker asking the audience their thoughts on the possibility of a $25,000 electric car.

    Looking at my Pi-Hole logs, one app is trying hard AF to contact segment.io. The only issue is, it's my second phone and while most apps are the same as what's on my first, I tried uninstalling a bunch and it's still trying desperately. Does anyone know of a way to find out which app is the culprit?

    Release v10.2.6 · JagandeepBrar/lunasea

    LunaSea, the open source Usenet monitoring app is pronounced dead for the most part. The developer via a Reddit thread said this:

    > tl;dr: development focus has shifted to a successor to LunaSea and is slowly being worked on. No timelines at this time, as I’m working on it when I have the drive to spend time on it. LunaSea is in maintenance mode and won’t be receiving any updates unless there is a major breaking issue discovered due to one of the supported modules having a breaking change. > > --- > > LunaSea was started over 5 years ago and in truth has a really poor code base. Mix of inexperience at the time with good design patterns alongside rapid feature releases has grown LunaSea to a point of being a huge time investment to make any major changes to the project. > > * Mix that in with a few other things, I have lost a lot of interest in working on LunaSea. Some things include: > * A tale as old as time in the industry: major burnout. This has triggered me to spend a lot more time investing in hobbies outside of coding and my computer in general > * Getting married late last year and spending more personal time with my wife > * Planning a cross-country move later this year and preparing for that > * Taking up a higher seniority position in my professional career (also as a software engineer) which has me committing more time to my career > > You also pointed out a really good fact, LunaSea does not really have any income. As it is now, donations are about equal to the infrastructure cost for maintaining LunaSea. Between donations on all the different platforms and Ko-Fi, I average approximately $40-$50/month. > > It’s increasingly difficult to want to invest a lot of time into something that isn’t really garnering any financial gains. I would probably estimate at least 3,000 hours have been spent working on LunaSea, and while I am a huge proponent of open-source and free applications, and I don’t regret making LunaSea FOSS, I do wish that I had more financial gains to show for how much time was invested working on the project over the years. > > All that being said, I’ve slowly been chipping away at working on a successor to LunaSea. LunaSea is no longer being worked on but I will publish a fix for any major breaking bugs if they occur. As it is now, LunaSea does have minor non-breaking bugs but is in a state where all intended functionality works, so there is no need for any updates. > > The successor will remain fully open-source, but will charge for the client application when installed from a monetization-supported platform (such as the App Store, Play Store, etc.). However, free copies of the binaries (IPAs, APKs, etc.) will always be available officially. > > This will be a complete rewrite that shifts to a server-client approach where the user would install/run (via Docker) a server component and the client application connects only to that. It allows me to start fresh away from all of the technical debt while having a much improved experience across the board. > > However, I’ll admit I’m not overly focused on this either. I work on it when I want to, and I’m not putting any pressure on myself to meet any timelines or release in any timeframe. I really love software engineering and want to avoid burning out again. > > I made the mistake of giving general timelines before regarding this project and have missed them all, so at this point I can only say it will be ready when it’s ready. Progress is still being made (albeit admittedly slowly), and I will remain monitoring feedback and giving support for LunaSea when I can.

    Top VC Kai-Fu Lee says his prediction that AI will displace 50% of jobs by 2027 is ‘uncannily accurate’
  • Mr Lee is underestimating capitalism massively.

    What we'll see is more and more jobs doing absolutely nothing in real terms, so tonnes of middle management jobs created. All while we continue to not have enough teachers, doctors and nurses as we as a society insist on under paying them, so we'll see those numbers dwindle.

    Robotics and machine learning will continue to gobble up jobs and the companies that transition the quickest will leave the rest behind. There will be a few major fuck ups, but it's all apart of the learning process.

    Within five years, we'll start to see jobs overseeing AI, imagine the staff in the supermarket watching self service tills and that will be the final nail in the coffin, but society will never admit it, because there's far more profit in propping up the existing system than transitioning to a post wealth society where things working well is more important than people accumulating money.

    Secure Cloudflare Tunnels with vLANs and an Internal Firewall Before It's Too Late! - YouTube

    Was looking into this today and this video came up, so thought I'd share

    Summary: > This video is about securing Cloudflare tunnels with VLANs and an internal firewall. > > The speaker, Jim, argues that while Cloudflare tunnels are a great technology, they can introduce security risks because all the traffic that comes into your network is visible to Cloudflare. To mitigate these risks, Jim suggests segmenting your internal network and adding extra layers of security. > > Here are the key steps to secure Cloudflare tunnels with VLANs and an internal firewall according to Jim: > > * Create a Mac VLAN for the Cloudflare tunnel. This will isolate the traffic coming from the tunnel from the rest of your network. > * Add an internal firewall rule to allow traffic only from the Mac VLAN to the specific port where your service is running. This will restrict the Cloudflare tunnel's access to only the resources it needs. > * Configure your firewall to perform IDS/IPS on the traffic coming from the Cloudflare tunnel. This will help to identify and block malicious traffic. > By following these steps, you can add extra layers of security to your network and reduce the risk of a breach even if your Cloudflare tunnel is compromised. > > Jim also mentions that a next-generation firewall can be used for additional security benefits. This type of firewall can perform deeper inspections of traffic and provide better protection against sophisticated attacks. > Overall, the video provides a good overview of the security risks associated with Cloudflare tunnels and how to mitigate those risks using VLANs and an internal firewall.

  • I Create Better Automations Using These Hidden Principles - YouTube
  • Home Assistant has all these points, but it's about the automations we build. In the video, he explores an automation that dims the lights when he plays stuff on the TV and brightens the lights when he pauses. He explores why it's not kid or wife friendly and how to fix it.

  • I Create Better Automations Using These Hidden Principles - YouTube

    Summary: > This video is about creating better smart home automations. The video introduces 6 heuristics that the creator uses to evaluate automations. These heuristics are: > > * Insider Knowledge: Automations should not require users to have any special knowledge to use them. > * Anti-ambiguous: Automations should be clear and easy to understand what they do. > * Failsafe: Automations should not cause any harm or negative consequences. > * All or Nothing: Automations should allow users to easily opt in or out of the experience. > * Accessibility: Automations should be usable by everyone in the household. > * Learnable: Automations should be easy for users to learn and understand how to use them. > > The creator argues that automations should be designed to be used by everyone in the household, not just the person who created them. The video uses the example of an automation that dims the lights and closes the blinds when a TV is turned on. This automation would be inconvenient if someone wanted to watch TV during the day, and it would violate the All or Nothing heuristic. > > The creator proposes a solution to this problem by adding a toggle switch that allows users to enable or disable the automation. The automation also includes a voice message that announces what actions can be taken. This solution satisfies all of the heuristics and makes the automation more user-friendly. > > The video concludes by asking viewers for their feedback on the heuristics and whether they can think of any other important heuristics that should be considered.

  • Blogging in the AI era

    Is it possible to blog in the AI era?

    I write short stories every now and then and I throw them online. I also have a tech blog, where I moan about the decisions software I use make and with my "infinite wisdom", I tell them what they should be doing instead.

    I used to host both on Medium, but Medium got greedy. Then it was WordPress, but now even they're trying to be greedy bastards and use my shit for training AI.

    Some would argue that WordPress paid hosting will exempt me from the AI training, but for less than 100 visitors a year, it's not really worth the expense.

    So what is the solution? I ask the greater minds of this community for suggestions.
