    honestly, the argument ferrari or leclerc made was that he let vettel get the slip. But imo that argument is pretty much null, Vettel got such a good start that he couldve gotten leclerc's slip regardless of leclerc wanting to give it to him or not.

    I disagree with Loire, I think it was a really interesting race. Albon's recovery was really good and interesting to watch. My only criticism with him is that his first stints are always too slow, compared to Ric and Verstappen. McLaren was interesting as well.

    Quite into F1 and slowly getting in WRC. Really hyped for this weekend in Monza, especially after last weekend. I cried, I'll admit it. Didn't know or even care about Anthony Hubert, but the people around in F1 were deeply impacted, it affected me.

    Edit: Sorry Anthoine, not Anthony

    Also want to add that I was quite annoyed with FP1 today, Russell was right, the marshalls shouldve learnt from Bianchi's incident by now.

    Persia of Prince. God that was a great game, or at least that is how I remember it. I think they should keep the story. They should change the character design to reflect more of what people at the time would actually look/sound like. Just looking at the cover it looks like something inspired of FF.

    Yeah I hard disagree with you on the claim 'Spotify are running on fumes'. There really are not that many better alternatives.

    Apple Music - The majority of the world isn't using Apple. But it is good to see that it does provide regional pricing like Spotify.
    Deezer - Huh? What is this? Its too late to market yourself now, Spotify users arent going to switch out anytime soon just for it, unless it has something like free HBO.
    Youtube Music - Geoblocked in a lot of places. It could be a competitor later, but not anytime soon.
    Tidal - Yeah its not happening, the majority of the world isn't going to pay more for the lossless audio. Even if it is the same price, it just isn't going to happen this late into the market.

    Honestly your best bets are Apple Consumers going to Apple Music or everyone going to Amazon Prime. But the majority of the world doesn't have prime and do they offer regional pricing for Prime Music? Yes there may be a better product available, but thats not the way consumers buy things. It has never been.

    You should just search "password manager" on Tildes, this has been discussed in detail in many threads. I use bitwarden btw, I wasnt sure about PMs at first, so a free one was the way to go for me.

    Wow this is huge. I wonder if China was opposed to this. It could mean less reliance on China. Maybe it would mean more because of the need to improve infrastructure.

    Maybe explain how they can impact the world? I feel like it shouldn't be vastly different to guys. I just graduated but I'm not a chick, so take my advice with a grain of salt

    Yeah totally. Honestly, I think a lot of the complaints about F1 are valid, but I usually listen to F1 and not watch it. The commentators usually do a much better job than the race directors so I end up having a great time listening to the midfield battle and gasly. Obviously this race was a stand out. This has probably been one of my favourite races in the Hybrid era. Another one was last year Monaco, how daniel pulled it off still amazes me.

    I agree, Gasly was phenomenal just last year. Maybe its the pressure? I don't know, and I don't want to spread rumors. But maybe getting demoted and working his way up would be the best bet for his future in red bull. Right now the grid is absolutely packed with great drivers, except imo Stroll and Kubica.

    Didn't use the same title for spoiler reasons. But honestly what a great race. Just from yesterday's Quali session there was a good chance it was going to be a great race. The Top 5 also felt like such an accurate depiction of the next generation of this sport. I really wish the most success to all teams, competitive races are the best. While I was supporting Daniel, I am still appreciative of these kinda races. I hope Renault can compete to Redbulls level next year. Again, what a race. Defs going to be on the Netflix at the end of the year lol.

    Ps. I hope Gasly gets swapped out next year: he sucked ass the whole season. He was a head of Verstappen at the start of the race then ends up being lapped... Daniil seems the best candidate.

    More interesting if you care for the tbh. Basically he was cut from Sauber at the end of last year even though people believe he performed well. He is being invited back but not as a F1 grid driver, but on the testing side. His replacements have done well: Kimi Raikkonen and Antonio Giovanasi.

    But thats the whole point of exploration right? It is new territory and you are naturally going to have few people at the start. But actually that might not even be true. If your product is good enough, it might become mainstream quickly. Look at the Wii Fit mat/board. There were games based on that, and it was pretty successful.
