Youtube is past the growth phase, at this point it's about minimising cost and maximising revenue.

If you regularly use it with adblock but decide to stop using it because of this, then youtube would have succeeded. You weren't making them money and were costing them bandwidth, so good riddance.

If you really want to stick it to them, turn on adblock, find some long videos and play them on mute in the background at 4K/1080p60 resolution. Cost them even more bandwidth.

Even better, start randomly disliking videos or making nonsensical comments (not hateful or toxic ones, just comments that don't make sense). Enshittify it further.

Have you or your parents never used a phone book to look up businesses and ended up calling A1 Plumbing, AAA locksmith, etc?

Interesting... I switched away from Samsung and actually hated stock Android!

  • I actually preferred One UI to the standard pixel, mainly because Google ruined the quick settings - they made each button unnecessarily big, and turning on/off the wifi requires two taps instead of one now (Internet > Wifi). That's something I can't change without rooting.
  • Some Samsung stock apps are actually a great alternative to the android ones (I use Samsung Notes a ton). The only downside is they force you to download it through their own app store.
  • Samsung doesn't really have much bloat now, and the few pieces of bloat i found could be uninstalled
  • Samsung is still the only phone manufacturer with triple camera setups in a small flagship phone

Don't get me wrong, it's not perfect, but the issues I had with Samsung were solvable (e.g. uninstalling bloat is a one-time thing) while the annoyances I've had with a Pixel aren't solvable (quick settings, no third camera).

BE NICE.

It's ok to have different opinions, it's not ok to insult others.

So basically, bosses can't deal with the fact that they can't step out of their room and yell at people, and therefore still want to inconvenience everyone.

MOD NOTE: BE NICE.

It's ok to disagree, it's not ok to insult or threaten other posters with violence.

The NLRB’s action adds another dimension to the Biden administration’s assault on noncompetes. The FTC proposed a ban on most noncompete agreements earlier this year.

But the whole “Have your boss or subordinate over for dinner” BS was never my thing.

TBH I truly think it was a boomer invention that died in the 80s, because nobody I know ever did anything like this willingly.

That was for a different time and era when company loyalty was a thing. When you intended to work for a company for decades, forming relationships with your boss actually meant something.

Nowadays employees are just disposable assets, so why bother forming deep bonds with your coworkers?

For a site filled with users who are more tech-savvy than the average person, I'm surprised there is such a big dichotomy in views here. Or maybe it's just one or two really vocal individuals.

I think everyone is agreed that the site is a cesspool that deserves to die. The issue is that getting ISPs to voluntarily block sites based on advocacy is bad. As the provider of a "digital human right", ISPs should NOT get to decide who gets their service and who doesn't.

The EFF isn't supporting hate groups. What they're saying is that an ISP block is a dangerous precedent.

When faced with the prospects of actually paying workers a far wage, these companies are doing everything they can to prevent it. Says a lot about their priorities.

Copied a few relevant paragraphs over:

A minister has ordered a Cambridgeshire council to end its “experiment” with a four-day working week.

South Cambridgeshire district council had announced plans to extend its trial until next April but it has been overruled.

The Liberal Democrat-led council was the first local authority in the UK to undertake such a trial. The council had declared the trial a success, saying the impact on recruitment and the health and wellbeing of staff had been “overwhelmingly positive”.

The local government minister, Lee Rowley, wrote to the council leader, Bridget Smith, to “ask that you end your experiment immediately” and said he had concerns about the “value for money” for local taxpayers.

The typical U.S. family earns about $71,000 per year, according to the Census. Yet, the average American believes a family needs at least $85,000 in annual household income to get by, according to a recent Gallup poll.

That finding tracks with a recent study from SmartAsset, a financial technology company, which found the average American worker needs $68,499 in after-tax income to live comfortably. (That works out to around $85,000 in total income, assuming a 20-percent tax hit.)

The two releases point to the same conclusion: Many Americans earn too little in 2023 to attain a decent standard of living in their communities.
