Гарні були у Кенонікал телефони:

"The phones were slow and had to be rebooted on a regular basis. [...] The battery indicator tended to show bogus data. Mobile data was unreliable, (national) roaming often didn’t work at all. The location service was very unreliable. The phone didn’t always ring when called, or you couldn’t make an outgoing call because the UI hid the buttons. The alarm didn’t work reliably. Bluetooth only supported audio devices, and later input devices, but not even basic file transfer. WiFi would not connect to WPA Enterprise networks until OTA-5. I think at one point the music player even started deleting files while indexing them."

Зате не злий Гоогл.

Цікаво, навіщо у npm, Inc стали вставляти у блог пости імбецильну мазню "мамо, дивись! я намалював дівча та хмару!"?

У пості 8 фігурок "девелоперів". Якщо раніше всі малювали на діаграмах абстрактного безстатевого користувача, то зараз я нарахував 6 расових категорій та 5 "жіночих" зачісок.

I feel they're overdoing it.

"Shout out to the six people who have tried to copy a share key from
one DAS page and use it to access another for free. I thought of that.

Those six people: 2x Mac, 3x Windows, 1x Linux. So 33% Mac. 41% of DAS

That "1x Linux" was me, HAHAHA.

I literally have an urge to do such king of checks "did the author think of that" purely for the sake of it. Had he failed to do the job properly, I would have dropped him an email.

I'm not a subscriber, btw.
