With Bijan Robinson going 8th and this guy (Peter Skoronski) going 11th overall in the NFL Draft, my family and I coincidentally had dinner within like 10 feet of two different top NFL draft picks in the last 6 months. Both at same shopping/dining area in Frisco.
(Bijan ate some sort of seafood thing and Skoronski had pasta.)
Moral of the story, eat dinner with (ok ok, near me) me and you’re guaranteed to become a top NFL draft pick.
My mind was completely blanking on the methods/terms we used “back in the day” to target Mac IE 5.5 with CSS overrides and I even struck out on DuckDuckGo so I asked ChatGPT 4. In addition to giving me the answer I was looking for and code examples, it also first spent several paragraphs first telling me how ancient that browser and what a terrible idea it was to even try to support it.
And then closing with reiterating AGAIN how “strongly it recommended not targeting such an old browser” and told me to convince users to upgrade to Chrome, Safari, or Firefox. 😂
I’m not sure if it’s a indication on the state of the podcast ad market as a whole or just of iHeart’s always awful ads, but it sure is annoying to hear the same 2 minute ad for a dumbass “smart” oven 3 times during a 12 minute episode of a podcast.
And even worse when listening to the The Ticket Top 10, to hear it back to back because the next episode is another episode of the same 8-12 minute podcast.
I mean I guess it’s less annoying than hearing all their ads for other iHeart shows that always sound SO AWFUL. I won’t name names that aren’t huge evil media conglomerates, but pretty much every podcast ad I’ve ever heard on any podcast network (other than RelayFM) always sounds like the absolute dumbest thing ever. Is that what ads for podcasts I like sound like to normal humans?
I’m thankful my mom is still with us and I have a totally fine relationship with her, but that’s not the case with everyone so for businesses with holiday-centric marketing this type of opt out from OpenTable is thoughtful customer experience.
(Smart business too as it likely means fewer people will just unsubscribe completely.)
I laughed out loud at some of the bits. (What was that, a rocket? And then the big tall 4 wheeled battle vehicle?) There are also several quick scenes with Link seemingly in action with a variety of other NPCs around. I’m hoping those aren’t all just cut scenes because it would certainly be interesting for a Zelda game to not always be a solo affair.
“…early prototypes show the console will look a lot like a PlayStation 5 controller, but with a massive 8-inch LCD touchscreen in the center”
I mean the Backbone One PlayStation edition sure already looks like a screen slapped in between PS controllers . I know if I was Backbone I’d certainly have opinions if Sony was doing such a similar sounding device without some sort of partnership.
Something able to use pretty close to off the shelf Android hardware like the Razer device could make the investment much less, and make it more likely Sony didn’t abandon it? I’m liking my Steam Deck and am more likely to pick up another PC handheld than a dedicated Sony device, but I’m glad that the competition in the handheld market is picking back up.
Take The Verge’s Color Quiz to test your color recognition skills and see if you can identify the hues of the logos of various tech brands. I did pretty terrible and only got 3 out of 8 right. The most interesting bit is post quiz when they give some background of the company logos and how they changed over time.
