we monitor many frequencies. we listen always. came a voice, out of the babel of tongues, speaking to us. it played us a mighty dub.
there's a hell of a lot of leds and greebles for something that's supposedly functional

that and the limited range of motion afforded by a bunch of wooden parts that are visibly glued and screwed together and otherwise appear to lack mechanical linkages

it looks very much like a cosplay outfit, that is for some reason on ieee spectrum next to a blurb about a bci controlled prosthetic

If you happen to catch someone using apple pay, it's not smug, but there's this self-affectionate look that crosses their face, as if they really do like being part of the new, cultured civilization that is above using bills or cards.

After giving a credulous idiot a chip embedded in their arm that enabled some 2004 version of apple pay, there is no world in which they don't frequent your bar more regularly and more exclusively.

On the other hand I do feel pretty smug whenever I pay with a card faster than it takes them to take out and unlock the phone or whatever they need to do to approve the payment.

on a modern iphone you double tap lock and allow it to get a brief glimpse of your face, then tap. it's virtually instant and probably does take the same or less time than extracting a card from your wallet, depending on how your personal loadout is arranged

or it would if I didn't still wear a mask everywhere, then you have to tap your unlock code 50% of the time

It wasn't long ago when Google rolled out a handy feature that made Assistant alarms shut up by simply saying "Stop" or "Snooze" — none of that "Hey Google" nonsense needed. These quick phrases were first available for alarms and timers on Google Assistant smart speakers and displays like the Nest Hub, but they eventually made their way to Google's phones starting with the Pixel 6. Now, users are reporting some hilarious unintended side effects with this feature.

After noticing their alarms didn't seem to go off on certain days, one Redditor woke up early to get to the bottom of the issue. The Pixies song Where Is My Mind? started playing since it was in a Spotify playlist the user had set as their music alarm in the Google Clock app. If you're familiar with the song, it starts with a person singing "Oooh," then someone else cuts them off by exclaiming "Stop!" before music starts playing.

Well, Google's Quick Phrases feature picked up on this and stopped the alarm before it ever really started.

i searched for "cyberpunk artifact" on aliexpress, and got this as the first result:

MUYI Sound Wave Push Card New Material Slider PPP Titanium Alloy EDC Magnetic Fingertip Toy Decompression Artifact Cyberpunk



after watching the video and scrolling through the description, i still had no idea what it is. after searching, i found something similar on amazon, which had this to say:
"When you push the magnetic EDC slider, the slider will make a very dry and clear sound, which is both auditory and tactile enjoyment. It can help you relieve stress. It is a great toy for treating irritability, anxiety, inattention, ADHD, and bad habits such as chewing nails and smoking".

so, i guess it's some kind of fidget toy? the only function seems to be pushing the moving part back and forth. quite the artifact!

well this sucks

looks like someone is testing out a chatgpt bot on my danish genealogical society's forum

its of course a perfect non-answer

the thread is someone looking for information about a death in 1975

the reply (translated from danish w google) begins "Unfortunately, I cannot provide specific information on the exact places of death of the people you have mentioned, as my knowledge only goes up to September 2021 and I do not have access to individual personal data such as places of death and family relationship details in real time." and then suggests that the OP try asking genealogical societies

i assume they intend to graduate to spam if the bot goes under the radar
