Apple AirPods are designed to die: Here’s what you should know
  • Personally I like the muse headphones. Absolutely fantastic range for the price and if you are actually looking for audio quality + repairable they are great. The build quality is also top notch and compare with the $500+ range headphones. I don't like how apples sound tbh. For that price it should sound better.

    For everything else I just get wired or target brand wireless. The target brand for less than 10$ has lasted over 4 years lol.

    Which communication protocol or open standard in software do you wish was more common or used more?
  • Theres quite a few sites that still use it and existing ones in the Fediverse have it built in (which is really cool). But your right, the general public have no concept of having something download and queue up on a service rather than just going to the site. And the RSS clients are all over the place with quality...

    Attached: 4 images Anyone know a good newspaper scanning service or good scanner? I have a number of Fresno Bee Newspapers I have been saving for a long time that I would like to see uploaded onto @[email protected] Here is just some of them. #archive

    Im trying to find a good service to digitize a couple of newspapers. See the post for a couple of examples. Mostly local, but might be interesting for people in the future.

    Scanner for newspaper

    I know this may not be related, but I am trying to find a good scanner for a newspaper. I have an original 9/11 newspaper by the fresno bee that I would like to see digitized at some point.

    Theres a couple others I have saved throughout the years that I would like to see make their way into archive.org. Im going to contact archive.org to see if they will accept the newspapers, but on the off chance I can do this myself (or have a service do it for not that much) I would rather do that.
