It’s been like this for 10 or so minutes.

HDDs are S L O W.

This is an external disk where I store all kinda bulk backup data and it’s the only spinning drive I still own… I wonder how much does ~5 TB worth of SSD cost these days?

@WAHa_06x36 @jk I too would definitely recommend Mini if the reason for choosing SE is not Touch ID (which I think is the most popular reason why people tend to choose it). It’s such a nice design and perfect size-class.

@js @tek That’s what I used to do, but then many emails look like this which is also not optimal.

I worry that I mad the reporting UI TOO MUCH FUN. Please don’t report users just to test this, no matter how bad their anime opinions are, even @halcy. He is trying his best.

Use on a Mac? MailTrackerBlocker is an open source plugin that blocks tracking pixels in emails:

stalling the inevitable of publishing the privacy labels for their apps is becoming ridiculous.

Wow, Tesla is giving up any pretence of being environmentally friendly by buying bitcoin, driving up the price, and creating even more massive energy wastage.

One of my fave Mac #accessibility features: Hover Text. I have 2 displays; one is always harder for me to see, especially content to the far right. Hover Text is an awesome and super lightweight way to bring things into view! Find it in System Preferences -> Accessibility -> Zoom

Since we’re all looking at Stocks today…

In the past years #VoiceOver has started to do cool stuff w charts. You can summarize charts and even play an audio graph!

In this video, I’m using 1-finger up/down swipes to go thru all the actions, then double-tap to activate. #a11y

@jwildeboer There is still theory with r/wallstreetbets people that price will be going up when the shorters need to start buy back stock.

@mastonaut Is it possible to manually refresh the timeline with some key combo?

@varjolintu Aside the bluetooth connectivity issues, I’ve been quite happy. Replaced my late-2012 iMac (did not officially support Big Sur anymore) with Mac mini so it was quite big jump in performance. While kicking butts in performance this computer is totally silent. Never heard any fan noise.

Hopefully BT issues are just signs of immature software / drivers and will be ironed out in the coming updates. In that sense it is not bad idea to wait the next gen hardware.

Release Candidate 2. Let’s hope this makes the Bluetooth more stable on M1s.

@varjolintu Yeah, it could be the monotony where days and weeks just blend together.

I don’t know what it is with times, but weekends just fly by. Before you realise it’s Monday again.
