FCC proposes ending cellphone carrier locks after 60 days
  • My work pays me a stipend if I stay on one of the big three since they have SLAs with them, so it’s hard to beat the price. $20 for 50 GB 5G is my out of pocket because I wanted to put my AppleWatch on the plan.

  • FCC proposes ending cellphone carrier locks after 60 days
  • I’m getting my phone on a loan at 0%. If I want to switch carriers, then I’ll pay off the rest of the cost of my phone and they unlock it for me, but considering we’ve been running rather insane inflation over the last few years, I’m glad I made AT&T pick up that tab. I see no point in buying outright as I’m not changing carriers multiple times in a year.

  • The EU are voting on Chat Control this Wednesday 19th June
  • They literally will do that. GDPR shows that they will go after big American companies (That’s the point, a huge chunk of this is protectionism to build a tech industry in the EU that they control)

  • Why don’t you like Apple?
  • I mean, the Linux lmza exploit was found by a Microsoft engineer. Just because dollars exchange hands doesn’t mean the data provided is invalid.

    Companies hire Jepsen to validate their code for example, and you’d be a damn fool not to accept their analysis.

  • Why don’t you like Apple?
  • Rossman has a vendetta against Apple ever since he got caught importing counterfeit batteries (You can’t slap the Apple logo on batteries that Apple did not make, even if you call them “refurbished”)

  • Many such cases
  • I’ve done workstation maintenance in a previous job. Every part of the Linux centralized management was worse than Windows. We did it to support our coworker’s wishes, but SSSD constantly shits the bed, and having to code (config management) to write some pretty simple rules like default printers is super annoying compared to the Active Directory built ins.

  • Sorry, Matilda.
  • The one that gets me is the Brits who get irritated that “You’re not an X-American! You’re an American!” Then call anyone with any south Asian ancestry a Paki.

  • Fetterman has to be one of the biggest disappointments for the left in recent memory
  • Ah yes, the dumbass who thinks that all Israelis are Europeans. After the Arab-Israeli war in 1948, you know, “the catastrophe,” Middle Eastern states kicked out or harassed their local Jewish population into leaving roughly equal to the number of displaced Arabs who became the Palestinian refugees. That was the real problem: damn near everybody played the “Send the Jews elsewhere” game, not just Germany. The pre-WW2 arrivals in Israel were mostly Russian.

  • Fetterman has to be one of the biggest disappointments for the left in recent memory
  • He’s got some strange agriculture sponsored bills, banning oil sales from the strategic reserve, but most of his sponsored bills are aimed at helping low income people stay in housing, some pro union stuff, and a bit of fuckcars. He literally sponsored a bill to cancel school meal debt at the federal level. Not sure why he’s getting blasted here as a Republican other than idiocy that he’s not a AOC clone by the “Palestine became my only issue in the last 5 months” folks.

    A bill to amend the Food and Nutrition Act of 2008 to ensure that striking workers and their households do not become ineligible for benefits under the supplemental nutrition assistance program, and for other purposes.

    Yea… Real Republican stance. /s

  • no really how do we fix this?
  • It’s not free, but I find it worthwhile. I really hope Apple includes it as a default engine in the next update.

    Kagi doesn’t sell you shit, so if you use Google for that, you can’t get that replacement data:

  • L.A. County wants to cap rent hikes at 3%. Landlords say that would push them to sell
  • Yea, I get that it likely wasn’t what was decided in the original case, but to claim that case isn’t what the justices use to define corporate personhood is ignorant.

    The much more egregious error that is referred to is Qualified Immunity, which seems to have been invented whole cloth by a scribe during the first time US laws were collated when he incorrectly wrote down a law.

  • L.A. County wants to cap rent hikes at 3%. Landlords say that would push them to sell
  • … It’s then referenced as if it was part of the verdict in Singer Manufacturing Company v. Wright the next session where Justice Newman’s opinion confirmed it explicitly.

    “[…] it is now considered settled, I presume, by the language used by Chief Justice Waite, speaking for the supreme court, in the case of Santa Clara Co. v. Railroad, 118 U.S. 396, 6 Sup.Ct.Rep. 1132, that corporations are so included and entitled, as fully as natural persons, to its protection”.

    This is why you should read a bit deeper.
