The amount of man hours this would require would bankrupt even Google. You'd be better off building a new index of whitelisted sites

A URL query is pretty damn low on things that make me feel like a fancy nerd. Add it by default to your browser's search function so it applies to all searches automatically

It's not scalable. Sure you could have humans comb through the most common 1000 or so results, but there's got to be billions of unique searches every day

Wonder if that strictly means lessons learned in development, or if it hints at onboard processing like a Quest. I've been more impressed with smaller headsets like bigscreen than standalone units lately

You also need to factor in opportunity cost or concede that your free time doesn't have value.

If you value your free time at the same rate that you work hourly, then suddenly it's very hard to save money by spending more time. If you value free time as overtime equivalent, it gets even worse.

Fwiw the switch is also significantly more portable. I love my deck but I only use it at home in bed or on the couch. I wouldn't really try using it in public.

Saved me a click through, I'm not mad about it

I use it every day in the same way I used to use Google. It's great for quick syntax reminders or low stakes 'searches'. If I want to know where to go in a video game, I'm always going to get an answer faster from chatGPT than Google, and it's not the end of the world if it hallucinates, although that has never even been a problem for me yet. Meanwhile Google just indexes 'recipe blog' type articles where you have to scroll past dozens of ads and drivel before you get to the actual info you're looking for.

If you treat it like old Google with a healthy dose of skepticism it's a very powerful tool. My only complaint is that it doesn't source it's info so I can't follow up or dive deeper very easily.

trackball mice

But why? These were never more popular than traditional mice

Sounds like you're a millennial with gen alpha kids. The latest generation is struggling to read and write, while millennials are the best typists

This happens to me when I add a word to the dictionary but it happened to be the first word of a sentence at the time I added it, so it got capitalized and now the dictionary thinks it's a proper noun

T9 just adapted the earlier lettering that phones already had on the numbers. '1-800-COL-LECT' Never intended you to type it as '1-800-222666555-555332228', you'd just dial 1-800-265-5328. but that's what you'd have to do to write it with T9.
