Firefox Beta 79 on Windows 7 -> Working

Firefox Beta 79 on macOS Mojave -> Working

Firefox Developer Edition 80 on Windows 10 -> Broken, lots of web requests unresolved on Network tab

2020 MacBook Air teardown shows in graphic detail how butterfly keyboards were snipped for scissor switch


I wonder why they never introduce Google as "the San Jose collector of all your personal info"

Dual screens, fast updates, no registry cruft and security in mind: Microsoft gives devs the lowdown on Windows 10X


Re: So this will be...

B-but it's got DUAL SCREENS this time!

If you're just injecting JavaScript into a webpage all you gotta do is make it a user.js and run it through Greasemonkey/Tampermonkey/Violetmonkey.

Got a pre-A12 iPhone? Love jailbreaks? Happy Friday! 'Unpatchable tethered Boot ROM exploit' released


If this thing works as it claims we're gonna have a bunch of previously iCloud-blocked devices popping up on Facebook Marketplace.

Woz says 'Jobs started Apple for money' – then says it must pay 50% tax like he does


Taxation is theft

I think I lost a bit of respect for Woz with this statement, well, I can't blame him too much because he's always been -shall I say- too naive? Big Govt isn't gonna go around and spend his 50% to feed the poor, they gotta feed the bureaucrats first, and they always feed themselves with a big spoon!

If he wants to play taxes so bad he should be starting philantropic foundations instead of telling other companies what they should do with their money.
