Weeknotes: Sunday 6th September
Abbreviated this week, basically because I want to do some more reading today. But I have some links for you.
Things I’ve been reading
The entitlement of these fuckers is just off the charts. They have zero right, none, to the tracking they’ve been getting away with. We, as a society, have implicitly accepted it because we never really noticed it. You, the user, have no way of seeing it happen. Our brains are naturally attuned to detect and viscerally reject, with outrage and alarm, real-world intrusions into our privacy. Real-world marketers could never get away with tracking us like online marketers do.
I could not agree more.
Despite Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s previous statements that the company had removed a militia event where people discussed gathering in Kenosha, Wisconsin, to shoot and kill protesters, the company never took any such action, BuzzFeed News has learned.
But of course they didn’t.
I really love Bear in so many ways, but I have never really had a reason to use it. It’s not a great notes app for me, because it doesn’t do handwritten notes (and being a big iPad user that’s import). Neither is it a better writing application than Ulysses.
While the Pixel wins at night, the iPhone dominates in processing power. Inside the SE is Apple’s newest A13 chip, and it’s fast — like wicked fast. I often caught the Pixel’s Snapdragon 730G processor working on images for a bit after I took them. When it comes to how quickly you can open the camera app, take a photo, and then review it, the iPhone wins.
It’s REALLY worth watching the full video for this. You won’t see a better example of why Apple’s decision to make its own processors was the right one.
Last week I deleted my Instagram account, because it was too important to me.
I mean you should be reading Chuck’s work anyway, but if you’re not this is a good place to start.
