"Roommate is dumb"

He'd be dead if he was my roommate.  Stupid and dead.

Anyone who links their primary phone to a web service is nuts.  I typically use an inactive G Voice number which goes nowhere.  I've had a few weak moments, one with Amz Alexa, which I now regret though I haven't seen it abused (yet). Amz wouldn't recognize my GV number. I should have bought a throwaway phone.

Jabbarnet has crept into W10, maybe earlier versions. You can now dictate into a text field.  Put cursor in field, Win key + H.  Worked on my crap laptop just now with a better-than-expected accuracy.

If you want to disable the forced login, a user on Hacker News points out a workaround that could change at any time. Copy and paste this text into your browser’s address bar: chrome://flags/#account-consistency. Then disable the option labeled, “Identity consistency between browser and cookie jar,” and restart your browser.

<title per Brad>

Nothing screams "lazy developer with 90s mindset" more.  Oh, the web is just like TV, so we'll just do our standard presentations and slap 'em on the web. It'll be fine.  It's the savvy way to go, 'cause all the kids are using video now!

Travoli is the only one here that'll watch all that crap.

This is from our "Wishful Thinking" Department.  Hell, we don't even treat many for active psychosis, much less taking preventative measures.

>Brad: On computer, nothing beats NewsNow.co.uk, their sources are extensive

And massively polluted with now infamous fake/manipulative sources.  I've applied my scripts and it is now a great resource for seeking articles that are crowded out elsewhere.   It also gives me a quick window on 'most popular' articles and what I see there is definitely worrisome in terms of public sharing trends.  I would only recommend it to others with massive caveats regarding sketchy sources.
