Oh, neat. MarsEdit will edit posts after they're published and Micro.blog will update those posts. I did not know that.

I think Blending Spoons has done a good job with Evernote so far. Their design updates have been needed improvements from previous versions.

I would like to see them work on widgets next. The widgets on Android still have the older design style.

@ridwan No, the opposition party cannot force another. Elections are held after terms are finished. The length of the term depends on the office.

However, the opposition party can make it difficult to govern. In fact, that has been the Republican party tactic to governing for 20 years now.

Mike Johnson’s third reason to take on the Justice System,

… and because people are losing faith in our institutions.

Sure thing.

Let’s attack one of our institutions with another institution because people are losing faith in our institutions. That’s going to totaly increase people’s faith in our institutions.

Makes total sense.

@ridwan Okay. I'll give this a go. But, first off, why is 'auntie' part of Kamala Harris' name in your question? Genuinely curious here. I've never seen that wording before.

  1. Yes, The vice President assumes the office of the President if the president dies.
  2. The Vice President nominates a new Vice President and the Senate confirms the new Vice President.
  3. No, the losing presidential canidate does not become the president.

So the same Crypto scammers are getting in on AI scams now.

The keyword here is scammers; not AI or crypto - scammers.

The scammers don’t change; the medium changes.

Someday I will have to try to write about why I enjoy the Google Pixelbook over the Apple MacBook Air (M1) over any other laptop that I have used. But, that is not today.

Today I will say that the keyboard on the Pixelbook is one of my favorite keyboards to type on.

@jtr Thanks for listening. I do apologize for the tone of the question in my response. Rereading it now and there is a bit of accusation there that was not intended. Appreciate that it found you in a constructive way rather than an attacky way.

@jtr Why are you holding other people to your personal standard of blogging? Just because people do not write as much as you want them to write is not a "depressing pattern" in independent blogging for the writers; they are writing when they want to write.

@numericcitizen But, it could be. That is why they keep writing that. The iPad Pro could be a Mac if Apple decided to do that. There is nothing other than Apple stopping it from happening. MacOS and iPadOS run on the same chip that are in both the iPad Pro and MacBooks. Utter flexibility would be an iPadPro that ran BOTH MacOS (when it was in keyboard mode) and iPadOS when it was not docked in a keyboard. The potential is there. If the potential is there, people will write about not living up to the potential.

$1,500 for 11 inch M4 iPad Pro, Magic Keyboard, and Apple Pencil Pro.

$1,099 for 13 inch M3 MacBook Air or $1,299 for 15 inch M3 MacBook Air.

@danielpunkass My issue is with shooting a family pet because it "isn't well behaved" without trying to properly train the pet or put the pet up for adoption, not that the pet in question was a dog.

For advocates of the open web and developing new experiences on the web, many seem to be fully in the Apple ecosystem and not realize there are other platforms out there.

If you’re advocating open web technology as the future, maybe don’t hitch your boat to Apple allowing your app into their store?

@manton Why does there have to be a "next"? Why can't there be a continuation? A refinement? A broadening as it were. Make Micro.blog the best platform for short form posts on the internet by focusing on core features, bug fixes, stability, and enhancements.

@JohnBrady that was not the response I got from that essay. In fact, it seemed more like a reason to celebrate streaming. All examples of how things were in the past or are currently involved are the largest artists of their time. The Beatles and Taylor Swift are not the average of the music industry.
