You mean like with vaccines and stuff? I mean, I live in Brazil, the president (yeah, that one) has been spreading crap like “COVID is just a small flu”, “chloroquine totally works, guys” and “vaccines bad” from day one, and that took no small part on our road to 600.000 deaths and counting, I’m pretty sure. Just a few months ago he pretty much said on a Facebook live stream that the vaccines cause AIDS, without a care in the world.

Thankfully Brazil was not already a nest of antivaxxers and conspiracy theorists before 2020 like USA was, otherwise I’m sure we would be even far worse than we are now.


Thanks for the concern, it’s bad, but I totally see treatments starting to show up in the future, like how people treat Alzheimer and such. Sure they won’t undo all the damage COVID has done, but at least it’ll be something.


I got COVID after a year ago and my already less than stellar memory has been senile levels of bad ever since. Same thing with my attention spam. Results may vary from person to person, but it’s pretty bad.


This is the first time I see Signal in Brazilian news since the controversy regarding WhatsApp’s policy change one year ago (Signal’s adoption is null here, while WhatsApp is king, with Telegram somewhere in between), all because “WhatsApp’s founder is back leading a messaging app”, so for now we can say this move is at least good marketing for them.


btc is not the only crypto

Then I more than welcome them to accept greener Cryptos only, which would eliminate all the most popular ones from the equation.

crypto overall use less electricity than conventional banking.

Conventional banking also does much more than just transactions.

anti-crypto activists getting mad at the wrong people and supporting the rich

The rich are the biggest Cryptos holders, it’s capitalism at its worst, unregulated capitalism.


Lemmy peaked the moment I joined, and I will forever take the merit for that. /s

(Any idea what happened between January and February last year?)


comes to Lemmy

posts “Lemmy is growing!”

refuses to elaborate

leaves

Jokes aside, was there supposed to be something more to this? lol


Ah, yes, I saw that episode of Black Mirror. No thank you.


It’s sad that we even have peer pressure to buy new shitty AAA games on launch.

For real. I’m glad my friends aren’t those drones buying the exact same EA/Activision/Ubisoft games every year, and instead we played over the years things like Don’t Starve, Trine, Left 4 Dead, Stardew Valley and a whole lot of Dota 2. I cannot imagine what it’s like to have your gaming experience so limited to online godamn shooters, I’d rather just find another hobby if it gets to that.



But china certainly wants to control what’s running on their systems.

I mean, yes, that’s why ditching Microsoft and going Linux is the right move, they can create their own distribution and have complete control.


I think Cyberpunk is probably the biggest factor to blame here. Let’s be real: most of the popularity the platform gained in recent years was because PC gamers started praising CDPR as this perfect game developer for some reason. CP2077 completely shattered that perception, it inverted it even. CDPR as a whole has a negative image now, and I can’t believe for a second that the store reporting loses out of nowhere, when it was doing better than ever right before the game’s release, is a coincidence.

TLDR; GOG’s popularity came with CDPR’s very positive image, it’s going away with CDPR’s very negative image.


From my experience it only shows up if you’re logged out, I can use it normally when I log in. As for op, I recommend RedReader to browse Reddit, it’s available on F-Droid.


Game developers associated with the ABetterUbisoft group are petitioning the Assassin’s Creed publisher for a seat at the table, and a “meaningful say in how Ubisoft as a company moves forward.” …


Yeah, I don’t think Privacy Redirect falls into what was described there.


To be fair, last time we got news of Protonmail “doing sketchy stuff”, it turned out they weren’t storing anyone’s IPs at all until a government body demanded they to do it for the specific targets, and well, they still gotta follow the law. So well, I think it’s reasonable to have just a little bit of trust on Protonmail too whenever the next bad news pops up.


Valve decided to give us a teardown of the Steam Deck hardware!..


Steam’s unreleased competitor is apparently called “Vapor” lmfao

Steam

and Vapor.

Please tell me this is just an internal codename or somethin’, I can’t even…


Oh, wow, I am almost mad at how easy that was lmao, thanks.

Any idea when that rolled out? My searchings for a solution a month ago didn’t bring any mention of it, and I can’t say for sure I specifically paid attention to any changes on the menu when in reader mode.


Help changing the color of FF reader mode on mobile

I modified reader.color_scheme at about:config and it worked flawlessly on both my home and work PCs, but not on the phone, it just stays white. …


It’s a good explanation on what is really going on with that. It’s not a good regulation, but it isn’t some Orwellian thing like I’ve been seeing people say either…






Crunchyroll was actually just bought last week by Funanimation’s parent company, so yay, I don’t really like the sound of that…





Historically, Twitter and Facebook have taken the position that world leaders should be exempted from most rules because the public has a right to know what their governments have to say and may be thinking. That changed when former President Trump was banned from Twitter and Facebook, however, so social media platforms seem to be taking a wait-and-see approach this time around.

No, nothing changed, they let the lunatic run his mouth for 4 full years– ironically, the white house itself had to step in and censor him at times to prevent literal wars, and the social platforms only banned him after he lost the election and was actively trying to weaponize his base against America to try a literal insurrection. But sure, whatever the article says.


If they are scanning their servers, you can just not send photos to their servers, but if they are scanning your phone or computer, that is a dangerous new line they just crossed.




I am not a heavy Mastodon user, but I heard about Misskey for the very first time yesterday. From what I could gather from the few-days-old conversation, it’s only now starting to gain traction as “everybody seems to be jumping in”.





Honestly there is something seriously wrong with EA games and whoever buy them when it gets to this point…
