the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people
No, the authority to choose an abortion is removed from the individual. Typical Republican rhetoric – they spin their Authoritarianism as "free" or "freedom" when they are the exact opposite.

There are techies of all ages.
I’m from a cohort of Gen-X who started coding BASIC at age 6. We connected to dialup BBSs in the mid-1980s and the Internet in the mid-1990s, and lived the evolution of social media from FidoNet to TikTok. My peers and I used Blackberry and Windows smartphones before Apple even announced the iPhone. We worked in tech during the Dot Com Bubble, and saw the "crypto winter" coming a mile away as it repeated the exact same cycle.
But maybe that’s the problem. Maybe we’re too cynical. After seeing so many false-starts of VR technology for example, and using and testing so many of them, you realize that the "revolutionary" advances are merely evolutionary, and it’s hard to get caught up in the hype for the 14th time the same junk is re-invented.

Everything about the metaverse, and web3 in general, is about monetizing everything. It flies in the face of the spirit on which the Internet was built, and feels as if the tech world has been hijacked by Anachro-Capitalists and Laissez-Faire Libertarians.

They won’t because Tesla charges $10/month for "Premium Connectivity" features that you could get for free with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
E3 (and CES) are frustrating for the programmers working on the products – too often, programmers are diverted from developing the product, to develop a smoke-and-mirrors demo that contains no production code and is thrown away. You have a tight schedule to develop a product, but you’re not allowed to work on the product, because you have make a BS demo! Much better off without E3.

Apple has been producing laptops for over 30 years (the PowerBook 100 was released in 1991). After 30 years of evolution, we shouldn’t expect any revolutionary changes.

It’s not about why, it’s about how. The guy built a custom copper CPU waterblock with nothing but hand tools. He even made a custom illuminated brass power button.
I don’t have time to binge watch a whole season. I fall behind my friends, and then I don’t even bother watching to the end. And many series are too daunting to even start.
I wish Netflix, Disney+, et al worked more like YouTube – shows should release one episode a week, and the app should show me all the new episodes that were released that day. Then I can pick and choose which show(s) I want to be caught up on based on the time I have available.
Also, don’t try to make me watch every episode. Some shows have grand story arcs that require watching in order, but not all shows do.

I like Perk’s videos because he puts much effort the materials and finishes: It’s not just a slim PS5, it’s a slim PS5 in a solid copper monolith. It’s not just a DIY PC case, it’s a leather and polished brass PC case.
