    The butterfly keyboard was garbage that was only necessary to facilitate a lower-profile laptop.

    Although having a medium-thickness laptop is nice (which is the middle ground between my previous two MacBooks), the butterfly keyboard is miles above scissor in terms of consistency and travel. It definitely is flawed but I don't feel like the butterfly keyboard was introduced solely for thinness.

    I don't know how to feel about this. There's a lot of misinformation on Twitter, but having any sort of disclaimer, especially on a politician's tweets, seems disingenuous. These warnings should be treated like any other reply — pinning misinformation warnings to the top that easily can have a bias in any direction isn't the way to go.

    So just Hytale then.

    Please note that this doesn’t affect the Hypixel Minecraft server or the team at Hypixel Inc at all. This acquisition only applies to Hypixel Studios.

    Reddit's event is r/imposter, which is basically a Turing test trained by Redditors. It's a bit underwhelming though.

    Too pro to need to look down to find the keys:

    A redesigned scissor mechanism delivers 1mm of key travel for a comfortable and stable key feel, while the new inverted-“T” arrangement for the arrow keys makes them easier to find without looking down.

    Unfortunate that both keyboards (of the MacBook and iPad Pro) are using scissor again, with an inverted 'T' arrow key layout.

    Minus the crumb issue I really like the butterfly keyboard, which I have on my current laptop. I don't think I could go back to a scissor keyboard even with the purported 1mm travel.

    The inverted 'T' arrow key layout, which Apple claims to be new, doesn't make sense to me over the previous layout. Apple claims it prevents people from having to look down to see where each arrow key is, but that's never been a problem for a pro user, and I think it'd be annoying to miss the arrow key.

    I beta-tested the iOS app. The design has been very good from day one, but it'd be nice if it was open-source and supported notifications for everything rather than just mentions.

    How do you recommend doing this if the moderators of the “one true sub” ban anyone who mentions smaller, alternative subreddits or participates in them?

    You don't; just like the jailbreak itself, you should probably read the code (if it is open-source) before using it on your device. Generally, most of the trusted developers/tweaks/repos will be able easily distinguishable from the rest, so as long as someone is vouching for it on one of the more popular jailbreaking communities, you can consider it safe.

    This is concerning.

    Today, we’re making an update to address this gap: Users who consistently upvote policy-breaking content within quarantined communities will receive automated warnings, followed by further consequences like a temporary or permanent suspension. We hope this will encourage healthier behavior across these communities.

    This is concerning.

    They...don’t support collaborative editing

    I believe Apple’s suite and Office have collaborative editing now, for the native versions. I’m not sure about the web versions.

    Doesn’t Google Docs simply have view/comment/edit? I think Apple and Microsoft’s suites have those same permissions too.

    The web is the ideal platform, and PWAs (powered by JavaScript) are what help power that. That's why I love that Tildes is a website, not an "app".

    Even though Tildes’ website is very good, I still think an app developed side-by-side with it would be beneficial and I (along with likely many others) would prefer it.

    A Tildes app would be usable offline, so you could read (saved) posts. It would provide native notifications, and native design. Tildes’ UI isn’t that great compared to well-tested design philosophy of Apple/Google/Microsoft. There’s only so much you can do with media queries.

    I think, for example, Google Docs genuinely provides me something that a traditional desktop application could not, and provides most of the functionality.

    Could you go more in-depth into what you mean by this? I feel like actual apps like Pages or Word have better accessibility, design, and UX than Google Docs.

    The only thing they might not have is support for all platforms, but both Word and Pages have web versions and even iOS versions.
