@georgetakei Because there's not a long rich history of companies that failed to make a phone successful. Facebook being a prime example. I welcome his next effort to spend $44b on nothing.

It's confirmed: Trump hosted Holocaust denier Nick Fuentes for dinner at Mar-a-Lago this week. Here is a full report on what happened, and why Trump's embrace of Nick Fuentes (and the Republican silence) is so dangerous: youtu.be/pbE-MOlt-_w

if you've ever messed up a dimension or a hole position on something you're building, don't be too hard on yourself.

at least you're not the Cisco design engineer who caused an entire product line recall by placing the mode button (which resets the switch if held) directly above an RJ45 port.

I love atheists because they don’t try to takeover the government to force their lack of beliefs on others.

When I get to 50,000 followers I will get a Mastodon tattoo’d on my left butt-cheek.

You know it’s Black Friday because Republicans asked for its voter ID.

If you or a loved one was diagnosed with Muskothelioma you may be entitled to financial compensation. Muskothelioma is a rare brain disease linked to Twitter exposure. Exposure to Elon Musk’s brain via his Tweets, replies, emojis, or by directly working at Twitter may put you at risk. Please don't wait, call a lawyer today!

@gadgetboy they're extremely useful tools, for sure. I will not deny that. But in a lot of my designer spaces, I see people reacting to them like they are the magic tool that separates a good designer from a bad one. Like there's other chip companies. Their branding works wonders.

BREAKING: Democrat and indigenous Alaskan Mary Peltola officially wins race for Alaska’s only House seat, defeating Pro-Trump Republican Sarah Palin.

I was just informed by Twitter that this does not violate their safety policy. Now you know why I, like so many others, are looking at other options.

Oh dear god.

I don't think you, or he, realise just how many accounts this is. How far "not broken the law" goes when it comes to abuse and harassment online.

This would release an absolute tidal wave of toxicity that's not been seen off full-bodied troll forums.

"Just as many laughed at Brexit and Trump in 2016 as preposterous jokes, many are laughing now at Musk, suggesting that he’s “mismanaging” Twitter and that it will end up being taught in business schools as a case study...

In fact, it is likely to end up being taught in history classes as an example of totalitarian information warfare...None of this is a joke, none of the old rules apply, and we would be well-advised to treat this as the threat it really represents."

Hot take: Elon Musk turned up the heat too quickly and the frogs escaped before he could boil us. That impetuous impatience may have killed Twitter but saved democracy.
