Source: Your Product Sucks — Apple Music macOS review – YouTube An expletive laden, but accurate account of the Apple Music software experience on the Mac. Apple’s increasing fixation on services revenue while dropping the ball on software quality and user experience is becoming a real problem for the Mac.

Two super-powered beings living idealized suburban lives suspect that everything is not as it seems. Source: Watch WandaVision | Full episodes | Disney+ Hey – long time no post.

We are Venom

by Deep Thinker on 13 October, 2018, no comments

I needed a break from everything yesterday, so I went and watched Venom. Now, I am pretty neutral about Venom, the comic character – or maybe less than neutral: I think the character is bland, one-note and a product of the 90s best left in that era. I don’t mind the character, but I don’t […]

I just learned that Umberto Eco has passed away yesterday. His most famous book was The Name of The Rose, but I have also read Foucault’s Pendulum, Baudelino, and even some of his irreverent prose about Naples and the Italian way of life. I also was fascinated by his study of Semiotics – even today, […]

I just came back from watching The Martian (all the screens are now showing the newest James Bond movie, so I am happy I managed to catch this movie still in cinema). What a great movie! Now I need to search the interwebs to fact-check all the science because thinking about how much of all of this is actually possible […]
