I've pirated. I'm a member of a piracy site.
But we all buy if good enough.
Weird how it works. With games, it's why I miss demos.
Try before you buy. And if you like, you buy.
I KNOW not everyone is that moral. Just, I understand first hand: a good product engenders love for it, and reward for those who make it.
To me a lot of piracy could be solved with a good demo period. What have they got to hide?
Please. You're giving it away.
Claim you WOOOSHed me and the other down voters if your fragile ego must.
If I am an idiot for talking seriously about political discourse though I'll be happily stupid compared to your "ironic" quote.
If you have a side? Say it plainly. Quoted, "ironic" bullshit is still bullshit.
MORE NOISE FROM FENCESITTERS WITH NOTHING TO SAY. JUST WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS

A troll-like comparison. I use my phone for MORE because I have more control.
I've got root with adaway. Filtering DNS,and I can see what requests are made in real-time and block accordingly.
YouTube Vanced for no ads. Blockada
Sir, if you are saying blocking this ad crap is like driving a car 20mph down a motorway, I say you're sucking off Satan for decrying the blocking of snoops.
Still. Here I am replying to a post made in sneeringly poor comparisons. You seem American.
The battery life sounds a big hurdle here, but I think a bigger issue is the poor track record Valve have with abandoning their hardware efforts.
Remember Steam Machines being touted?
And the Steam Link devices... I had one. Pretty good. But no longer made or supported.
The Steam Controller too, a decent pad... Abandoned.
Buyer beware. Their corporate structure, being so... fluid... Doesn't make me think they have a dedicated hardware division.
Touched on in the article for sure, but the keyword obsession by the tech-illiterate is worth remembering.
You must be dreaming if you think the first eyes to scan your CV are one's homed in a skull that understands anything technical.
So it is sadly necessary to be fairly exhaustive - mention what you used, and why, and to what result.
Also. Cover letters. These separate you from the illiterati.
One thing I manage, though not with spoofs..
Truecaller and sundry other apps will show the company hosting the number you're calling from..
Ive had about half a dozen times when I've rang that provider - usually UK based telcos, leasing out numbers to a company who are the scammers - and basically politely but sternly read em the rights and advised they're in for it when it's clear their customer has broken their contract.
Sometimes I've been thanked, sometimes nothing back. But a decent amount of times, the number I captured stops working.
I do resent having to go to such mad lengths though.
Still using a Gmail account like an idiot, I do get spam through to the inbox on occasion.
Like this Tesco email, the entire content is an image with zero text. And Gmail does not let you filter messages that are just an image (nor am I sure I would always want to). With no words in the body, it is difficult to filter at all, as the senders change every time.
More research, more action welcome.
Also it does take micro SD cards.
The charge time is impressive. Think its a 40watt charger. I have actually slow charged it with a bog standard USBC brick for my blower, though paranoid about the battery this way, it works.
And it really is light. I went for it instead it the Carbon. I don't think I made the wrong choice!
While I could spend all day slating Amazon, and you're absolutely free to dismiss their successes, I think you're being a bit unfair here on El Reg.
I see, so any positivity is sucking and slurping out of fear of reprisal...
How about this: it's a difference of opinion rather than an indication of corruption?
I'm a lot more bothered by the (usually overseas, spoofing they're HM Revenue) illegal calls where they spoof a UK number, and just lie, anything they can to get your card deets.
Can nothing be done? Because nothing is being done. I'm thinking on a technical level. The phone companies do nothing. (and I don't mean "do something" for me personally. I want to GET THEM.)
I used to think that but then I got the Xiaomi mi 10 ultra and its charging Dock. Its faster than my previous phone on the mains and, being a Dock, is pretty hard to screw up!
Just saying, if you want to criticise the old standard, fine but it's not only developing well, but I have the next big thing already. It's out there.
