Um, okay, how the hell do I do that in Chrome on Android?

What the photons, +YouTube​?! You had better make this right soon or I'll cancel my YouTube Red subscription here and now. I do not want my money paying for this assinine behavior and depriving awesome creators of viewership. Ads be damned, I'll do it 😡

It's silly that in 2017 on Android's latest Nougat version I still can't get a well-known Pluggable brand USB-C Ethernet adapter to work reliably on a vast array of Google services simply because Android assumes that a lack of Wi-Fi or cellular connectivity must mean that any connectivity doesn't exist. Oddly enough, the Google+ app seems to have no issues, yet the Play Store just refuses to even try. And don't even get me started on eth0 not supporting autoconfig addresses. I can't even set the address manually without root. This is bullshit, +Google​​ 😣

And we're still waiting for those devices almost three years after this article was written. Yet three weeks ago, the SD Card Association announced a newer UHS-III standard with even faster theoretical throughput, but silence on the matter of mobile adoption. Are we mobile SD card enthusiasts that much of a minority that the mobile tech industry simply doesn't care about us? I don't want to live in a cloud-only world where mobile storage is relegated to second-class options. That being said, I'll continue to muddle along with my USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C M.2 enclosure for my portable storage needs. I just wish it didn't have to be this way. Seriously, #FirstWorldProblems

Pet Peeve of the Day: People who write "web sight". Unless you're literally performing a machine vision task, you probably meant "web site" or even "website".

Ugh, +Android​ Marshmallow is horrible when it comes to UX in this page. You tap "Add user" and then... nothing happens for a good few seconds. In the meantime, you think to yourself: "Oh, I must have accidentally fat-fingered that button press. I'll just try again." So you do just that, but again nothing seems to happen. Then you start to get a bit desperate, tapping on the little gear icons in the vague hope that the proper workflow can somehow be found in those murky depths. By the time you've exhausted all those options, to no avail, you arrive just in time to see two "New user" entries pop into existence. WTF, +Google​? All you had to do to communicate that this process would take a little longer than usual would have been a textual notice to that effect or a little spinner next to a grayed-out new user entry. Instead, you seem to prefer to let the user stew in this zone of ambiguity for an indeterminate amount of time while they continually question their sanity. And you wonder why new users to Android are loathe to try your shiny new features? I'm an Android "veteran" and I still can't puzzle out the rationale for some of your design decisions. </rant>

The Mophie Mod for my retus channel Moto Z doesn't seem to be fast charging while in "Efficiency Mode". I suppose that's the point, but I wish that was clarified a bit more in their marketing material.

Edit: Also just found out it interferes with my NFC reception. Great.

Wait, so now Microsoft wants to read your emails using an intelligent agent in order to suggest helpful and relevant services for you? I guess that Scroogled campaign has turned full-circle, huh?
Wait while more posts are being loaded
