Best thing about 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 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.

@fahrni Me too! On the other hand, For All Mankind improved significantly after lousy couple of first episodes, but reviewers who’ve seen the full season of Foundation make it sound that this one is not alike.

However, had chance to see on IMAX screen. Couldn’t have chosen better first movie to see on big screen after COVID times. Jaw dropping cinema and Villeneuve once again didn’t disappoint.

episodes 1 & 2 were not good. Instantly forgettable show. Curse of lousy original content continues.

How do I start a new paragraph when drafting a post with app? I’m missing my enter key!

@aral Yep, this has been lowkey bothering me since elementaryOS 5 - but woah this is an old bug…

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.

@tatey Thanks!

Can’t be that bad - I survived Big Sur betas somehow.

@toni I have a 6-core Intel Mac. Teams grinds it to a halt whenever I have a video call. It's incredible how much everything slows down. No other meeting software does this, so Teams has something really unique on their hands. :D

Earlier today, #Microsoft pushed a promotional message to early adopters of #Windows 11. The promo intended to promote the upcoming operating system’s integration with Microsoft Teams. Instead, it caused Explorer (the Windows desktop shell) to stop responding and left users without a working Start menu and taskbar.

I never want to hear about ease of use or fragmentation holding any other OS back. Windows obviously isn't keeping it's market share on actual merrits.

Had first meeting experience today. Met and even exceeded expectations. Video, audio, screensharing - all worked out without glitches. And it seemed so much more responsive than MS Teams (running in latest Safari Technology Preview browser window).

Will definitely have my next meeting again on .

@tek I like to think that dnsmasq is like tyis and there is this English dude Simon who put this little DNS hackory on his personal family web page/photo album thing and over the next 20 years it grew to run most DNS queries on the internet and has completely taken over the poor little webserver that once held the photo albums of his vacations and kids school photos home improvement projects

But I don't like to think about how close to reality that might be

Anyone using Monterey beta?

Keen to try out TestFlight for Mac but scared that Monterey betas could be still rough.
