    Rimworld was the game that was kind of like dwarf fortress but with a usable UI, right?

    I don’t know much of stadia and immediately dismissed it as another short lived hype, but I am amazed by this lineup. I thought it would just be some random low budget games like Apple Arcade.

    Try declining their terms of service, at least the ones for the smart features. Allegedly that will just keep you from using these features.
    Maybe you can try that in store or maybe someone here has tried it?

    I think it’s a case by case basis, my yoga 2 pro was very bad with Linux. And it couldn’t display yellow properly. That was a device for 1700 bucks.

    I use it for note taking for the last year and I think it’s amazing. I don’t think there’s any tablets in that price range that can compete, especially since they won’t get updated 6 months in.

    I think this article explains things very approachable. Especially mentioning that those frequencies have already been used before. I hate how every time a new technology appears people have to be adamant on it being bad. I had some fliers lying around from people that handed them out in my city, claiming 5g kills insects. I sadly don’t have it anymore or I could upload it. Maybe if I see them again.

    I would say it’s more common than you would think in Germany. I actually just am lying at a lake where next to a small wall there’s a nude beach right next to us. That was also the case on the last lake I went to. But of course this is anecdotal. But it is not really uncommon. In normal Public swimming pools they sometimes have a nude evening, etc.
