    I can see this being like the expansion slot or USB port on the ps2 and there for future expandability. Such as external drives fast enough for what they plan to do with SSDs. Or as you suggested, it gives them the ability to use an external GPU.

    It could also hardly be used like the ps2 expansion slot. Did you know you could install a HDD in one?

    When I first tried to get the game to load on my phone (pixel 3) I was only prompted with the option to click space to start. After reload it and aimlessly clicking it seemed to load the mobile version. I think it's because I loaded in chrome and not my Firefox pinned link pinned to my home screen. Opening the link in a regular Firefox tab also only told me to click space.

    Once it was loaded it took me a while to figure out how to play. It just loaded numbers with a count down right away.

    Swiping down does not pause the game. This just triggers a refresh in chrome.

    I started using the YouTube music app 6 months to a year ago. I switch back and forth between YTM and GPM, early on YTM was hard to use but did have some features the were an improvement.

    The big jarring change I found was the UI/UX in YTM . Compared to GPM it doesn't feel as intuitive and is missing a lot of the fluidity. Over time they have made some updates but mostly I think I have gotten used to it.

    I found I discovered more music with GPM, and even more earlier on in it's life especially back when the had playlists currated by people. GPM playlists now kinda suck, I kinda feel like this has been done on purpose.

    Overall GPM has been left without any updates and has just been put out to pasture. I seem to use YTM a bit more but still get frustrated with it. For the most part I use either on in my car with Android auto which is mostly the same between the two.

    The big thing I'm wondering about is I got YTM at initial release and still pay that price, I think $8. This gives me YouTube premium too. It looks like the equivalent tier would be $12.

    Am I excited nope but they have made the two apps close enough to each other. At least they have handled it better then chat apps and we only have two.

    I like seeing innovation and trying to get out of this rectangular world. But this isn't it. Granted I see a niche market for this.

    At least for me a part that holds me back from posting is it might not be anonymous. In the sense that someone I know could put put enough together and figure out it was me. It might make my opinions knows including ones I consider private.

    With that train of thought it might be to help remain anonymous.

    If we everyone is going to be in the same schools we need to also realize some people might just be smarter and some might learn differently. In my opinion no child left behind brought everyone to the average it held back people that could have excelled and forced people to learn in a classroom in ways they don't learn well in.

    Banning private schools locks everyone into one system cutting down on options. I agree that private schools in some sense take away from public schools but it also gives options. We need different kinds of classrooms for some and pubic schools might not be the best option.
