Was trying to keep the M1 MBP Rosetta 2-free and found that I have installed Zoom and Forklift, both of which are Intel binaries. I deleted both and found a way to remove Rosetta 2 completely (needs going to Recovery mode). Now Rosetta 2 is not installed. Yipee!

whew finally got Linux Mint running on an old Acer Aspire laptop after replacing the HDD with a Kingston SSD. Now it is usable again.

This is one of the reasons why I use a Mac. This Acer laptop is weird. Installed new SSD drive and installed Linux on it, but it won’t boot up (can’t find bootable device) - but it boots on USB! Even if boot sequence on BIOS goes HDD first. #scratchesHead

Just removed the CMOS battery off of an old Acer laptop, hoping that it will clear that BIOS password. Will an hour be enough to flush the password? Do I need to remove the laptop battery, too? It’s been decades since I last did this. Haha

Locket is a nifty app + widget. Apple’s Photos widget can do a limited version of this, too – if only the Photos widget will allow the source to be any album (including Shared Albums).

Apple can do it in South Korea, why not just do this globally - and ease up some of the attention from anti-trust agencies?

What is the incentive for Apple to support RCS when carriers worldwide are not supporting it?

11 Jan 2022

I really don’t think so - but then again, if Apple joins only to disrupt it from the inside, then it’d be great. LOL.

Why Google bullying Apple to support RCS is not the right strategy

Google can’t push Apple to support RCS, but carriers can. However carriers all over the world are not transitionin...

WhatsApp co-founder is now Signal CEO. Interesting. I just hope that he reverts Signal app and moves the cryptocurrency support as an external app plug-in, similar to GIPHY.

No wonder one of Google’s executive is complaining about Apple not embracing RCS. Frankly, it is iMessage or Signal (at the moment) for me. I cringed when I use SMS, sorry.

Some insights about web3 from Moxie. I do agree that the crypto on web3 MUST BE CRYPTOGRAPHY and not about currencies. Let’s make this so. Blockchain is tech looking for a problem to solve, right?

Any Threema users here? Is it worth the price? That crypto-play of Signal is making me think twice about recommending it.
