"Piracy Should Always Be An Option
Stuck between a rock and a hard place: Monopolies that exploit vs competition that excludes. Consumers want their one-stop-shop, but they also want them to not have horrible business practices. What do we do?"
"That's what the fuck I do."

I wish you were more passionate, and had more of a sense of urgency.
It's a web application, not the fucking Apollo program.
You need to take ownership of your work.
But I don't own it. It's work-for-hire, which means the client owns it and all I get is a shitty paycheck and the health problems endemic to sedentary work.
I still have machines from 2012 in regular price today doing their jobs just fine, using the current release of Debian.
I would have thought it absurd to try and use the 386 I got in 1990 on a regular basis in 1997 (would windows 95 even run on it?). I actually think that is a great thing, and I hope some day we can make mobile devices follow the same path.
Much of the so-called "news" I see on "news" sites isn't news at all. Sometimes, on the Norwegian sites, the front page is about a soccer match. At other times, nothing happened in Norway that day, and all the "news" is international, and yet, it still isn't news.
News is information about the current state of affairs, and before the "news" media hijacked it, it carried much more weight.

"George Hamilton has never voted, says actors 'have no qualifications' to talk politics
In fact, Hamilton believes that it's irresponsible for actors to share their opinions on political issues entirely, because entertainers "have no qualifications."
"They're given an unusual amount of credibility," he said. "A lot of young actors do it and they shouldn't. The political (people) are happy to use your persona." "
"Apple users have no one to blame but themselves.
In 2019, there is a lot of information available on Apple's design practices, how they deal with lemons, and the longevity of their products. If you still choose to give them money, whatever happens to you, your wallet, or your data is on you."
