I already have the desktop app, what difference should this even make? Pointless gatekeeping by the devs
I was just browsing the Google Play Store and I am getting frustrated seeing games being tagged with the genre, but aren't actually simulating anything. E.g. Idle Miner/Mining Tycoon (can't remember name). Nothing in the game is accurate or even tries to represent real life. It even has cartoon graphics. Now I'm not getting mad about the games themselves, just the fact that they are being labelled as sims. Anyone else annoyed by this?
I know this is old news for most of us, but it's something I had just forgotten to get around too. Filtered out Elon musk and X posts. I don't care about any of it, and tired of seeing every seemingly 5th posts being about it.

It has a hole, we have to sit on the edge of it.
Just rage canceled Paramount+ after seeing the 1 minute of unstoppable ads before each episode.
Then they'll say people don't want to pay for content...ffs
Infuriating to think that all these places can sell products with a 50% discount and still make money. The rest of the time how much are they raking in? But we are all scraping by and gotta do what we gotta do. Thanks for letting me vent.
Yes, you're looking at ~92% tax right there. Final price jumped from ~113 dollars (584BRL) to ~220 dollars.
EDIT: A bit of clarification, when buying from abroad there's a flat 60% federal tax if the thing + shipping price surpasses 50 dollars. Then there's a state tax that can vary between 17-25%, which goes on top of the total taxed value. Part of the tax is literally "tax of a tax"
If someone knows how to disable this fuckery, please tell me or i have to install adobe acrobat, it makes me crazy as it floats on all the open PDFs, covering text/content
I used Reddit for nothing but memes and niche technical content, so I hope we can eventually get the same here on Lemmy.
Black friday, en rea, så priset rör sig som förväntat
Edit: I wasn't awake enough to see I wasn't posting in feddit.nu, Hjalmar translated very nice, thx :). The image is of the price of Xbox X in Sweden as I read the price history on prisjakt.nu, a price comparison site. What I perhaps should have included is the price history for not only since 4/11, but the fact that the price had been the same since 5/6 when the price went from 6189 SEK to 5290. There has been a lot of advertising about not only black friday, but black week in sweden (apparently black half-year ;)), so let's hope for the price to drop down under 5290 on cyber monday then shall we :D
luckily this is just a 32; i had a 70 from the same brand with the same INSANELY FUCKING STUPID STAND DESIGN that i had to find something for....literally at the most extreme edges of the thing, what the fuck is this? this is so fucking stupid, it cannot be meaningfully cheaper than a proper design and it looks fucking dumb as hell and surely this has pissed off 90% of people that wanted a TV and want to put it on a little stand like a normal fucking person right??
For context: The thread was about why people hate Hexbear and Lemmygrad instances
Edit: Folks, I keep telling you it's VERY unlikely to be malware.
I’ll update you and apologize to each if my credit card gets wiped or something but I’m quite sure I’m safe, don't worry.
Also sorry for blaming Microsoft for what is apparently my fault.
I accidentally clicked Microsoft Edge on my work computer with Windows 10 and couldn't close it — it just keeps reopening. It takes File Shredder to stop it from opening again, at least until the computer restarts.
Notice the ads, most are extremely sketchy (my frequent reload in previous takes caused the ad server + my work VPN to rate limit me):
- China warns:
%user.currency%is dead! (Yeah, sure. Obvious propaganda. Generic pictures or faked images of a worthless banknote giveaway.)
- 63-year-old figured out! (Does not say what but a pic of obviously young-looking feet.)
- Make boatloads of money with AI! (aka auto-trade very uncompetitive options, no guarantees on withdrawals of any wins)
- Save money using solar! (The company is legitimate but the deal on panels is probably not great)
- Buy yourself a great new FPCEILPTBSP! (You can't tell what it is and neither can we! (Apparently TV wall mount))
- Losing hair?
- Millionaire has genius method you can try (but give us money first, making his pic transparent so we can put him in front of
- Game! Yay! (Microtransactions galore!)
- Get EVERYTHING in your car fixed (by a stock photo mechanic!)
I'm a performer, so I need my account for work and to book gigs. I've been locked out for almost a month due to a platform bug, and have tried and exhausted every possible avenue of support.
what the fuck could you POSSIBLY want from me you fucking moron? a fucking dog has better manners and sense, you fucking dunce
