Elon Musk Takes On Apple’s Power, Setting Up a Clash
"Get to a story that has been dominating social media, perhaps not necessarily market since Twitter is no longer a public market, but Elon Musk is very public. And he's been going to war with Apple talking about how Apple is withdrawing certain advertising, also saying that Apple has threatened to withhold Twitter from its App Store, but won't tell us why. That's what he's saying. And then he goes on to really start going directly after them. Did you know Apple puts a secret 30% tax on everything you buy through their App Store? This is Elon Musk on Twitter. And then going even broader and talking about the battle for free speech. To understand what could be underpinning this and also what this means in terms of Elon Musk's power atop Twitter, but also just in general his wealth as also the founder of Tesla is at ludlow Ed, how do you make sense of the rhetoric that we've heard from Elon Musk on Twitter over the past couple of hours and days? No one's quite sure it's possible to make sense of anything. That relates Elon Musk. I would say that his grievance with Apple, particularly around the App Store and the 30% charge is long-standing in the sense that he's spoken about it before, you know, clearly he takes issue

Steam Deck’s Greatness Makes It Hard To Go Back To The Switch - Kotaku
"Duo says I just bought that Nintendo Switch deal. That's great. I would probably have jumped on that if I weren't the proud owner of a steam deck and man if the steam deck hasn't been rocking my socks lately. I still feel like I kind of missed out by waiting. I kept waiting for a switch pro and then that never really came. And now I'm kind of waiting again if I want to get a Nintendo. I sort of want to wait until there's the next version of a Nintendo Switch out, a switch to just a slightly more powerful version of that handset. Oh, see, I'll have a reviews, this stuff really bugs me. Same with Samsung, no app support on iOS for the galaxy buds two pro stuff like that bugs me. I get it, but it bugs me.

Bray gray, I'm still on the GoPro hero 8 and it's perfectly fine. Yeah, I'm a big fan. Of the hero ten. Yeah, I think yeah. I've already kind of gone through that.
