Kept sending bug reports of this to #Apple during whole beta period, but they failed to fix it. Glad I’m not alone with this. “macOS Monterey Users Report Connectivity Issues With USB Hubs” https://www.macrumors.com/2021/10/29/monterey-usb-hub-issues-reported/
So is #Odysee basically Invidious with some crypto-bullshit tagged along? Or do they actually ”youtube-dl” the original videos and re-host them?
Looked into #Gemini protocol yesterday. I like the simplicity, but no inline hyperlinks or image embeds seems to me like artificial handicap in order to it actually get some foothold alongside HTTP. Philosophy of it has probably been hashed in Gemini newsgroups numerous times, but do we really need modern version of Gopher more than less shitty version of modern web.

Best thing about #Apple ecosystem is that postponing the upgrades is easy decision. The older phones function so well and keep receiving the latest software updates.
In addition to my iPhone XS I’m still happily running iPad Pro from 2018 (new Pro with XDR display is super tempting though - those black levels 🤤).
Also it is crazy talk to upgrade 1000€ phone yearly basis.
Based on early #iPhone13 rumors I was prepared to upgrade this year from my XS. Since many of the rumors didn’t come through (notchless hole-punch camera design, improved magsafe, in-screen TouchID…) I think I’ll skip another year.
Just need to get replacement battery for my XS. Otherwise it’s performing as well as the day I got it.
That wasn’t so bad. All the apps seem to be working and nothing has exploded yet. Will be interesting to see if Bluetooth stability on M1 hardware has improved since Big Sur.
