>Apple is exploring the possibility of integrating a fully functioning Mac within a keyboard, reminiscent of home computers of the 80s, such as the Commodore 64 and Sinclair ZX Spectrum.

Apple wants to remake the Amiga 500?

So more tightly integrated hardware that's impossible to fix when one part goes bad.

What's the point of something like this over a laptop? It's only good of scratching that nostalgia itch.

integrated laptop hardware for displays and speakers and stuff suck

 No.13974

>>13973
That's true but you can hook up a laptop to monitor and speakers or use the laptop by itself when needed. You lose flexibility with a keyboard computer and it's still going to be filled with laptop hardware. A keyboard computer has the disadvantages of both a laptop and a small form-factor desktop.

How does anyone use the APP? I have tried to use that app over and over again and i just can't get adjusted to it.
This isn't a knock on the devs or the hard work they have done or the people who use it. It has done a lot of good and with out the app we very well wpuld have probably been put on a different time line where the forces pf evil and the bunker won out.

That being said, I just don't get it. Aesthetically the app is very jagged and rough on my eyes. When in comparison to just the normal browser view I still get to pick my themes and the themes look like they do on my desktop machine. There's also just the general browsing experience. The browser allows me to judt browse the board as if i was on my desktop, but, the app just feels counter intuitive to the browsing habits of imageboards i have acquired over the years.

Can some one explain to me?spurdoSpurdo

Catalog mode feels pretty nice to browse the boards

And I think you can change themes in the settings (although they're not the same as the browser)

it’s for mobile and also FOSS so not a lot of people interested in maintaining it
yes, i know it’s a necrobump

You WILL use Pipewire
You WILL use Wayland
You WILL use systemD
You WILL install everything from Flatpak
You WILL use GNOME
You WILL use GTK
You WILL NOT have thumbnails in the filepicker
You WILL use btrfs
You WILL accept the code of conduct
And you WILL be happy

they did the patches

 No.11809

>>11798
Supposedly the patches to add thumbnails in the filepicker were bad, also I'm pretty sure that most of the GTK maintainers are just corporate glowies or just autismocoders that don't want anyone to touch their precious baby, so for such a fix to even be possible someone'd have to fork GTK and somehow get everyone to switch over to it and recompile everything to use the patched version of GTK with filepickers, and even then the forked GTK won't have red hat backing so it'll stagnate and it's a big shitshow.

>>11798
People make patches but they stop working quickly because GNOME's codebase is more unstable than one of your mother's bipolar episodes.

You forgot this:
>Someone bug reports one of the braindamaged UX decisions
>Dozens of people swarm the ticket complaining about the issue
>One of the devs locks the thread because "OMG I'm being harrassed!!!!" and "this is not constructive guise!!!!!!' which prevents further patches from being submitted
>Dev then sits on the bug for 5 years without fixing it

systemd is a good system manager for servers but it actively hinders any attempts at serious linux desktop systems i think
>>8566
all of those use GTK
Fluxbox and IceWM are the only non-gnomed stacking window managers

anyone else nostalgic for the old iOS? skeuomorphic icons, simple jailbreaking with Cydia, comfy palm-fitting size, iTunes instead of the godawful new media apps/services, no annoying people born after 9/11 on social media apps

Why don’t new batteries ever use heavier anodes which would produce a greater electronegativity difference like rubidium fluoride batteries within less space? Why tf is lithium always used when it runs out so quickly?

 No.13904

>>13903
Lithium is lightweight, so lithium ion batteries probably have a higher specific energy (but not energy density) than something with heavier anodes.

 No.13905

>>13904
Sounds like the most plossible answer especially considering ordinary hydrogen dioxide batteries may also be used in light electronics but then there’s the question of heavy machinery, cyberphysical systems like an industrial DCU all running on these god awful batteries that just screams poor design

How useful is the Titan M chip, especially with Graphene OS installed?

I'd hold off till Graphene announce their partnership with the as-of-yet unknown OEM they're apparently worked with. Could be interesting to see a mid-range phone with Graphene out of the box.

I don't think so, embedded devices that could use the specs of a 386 tend to go with the Motorola 68K based microcontrollers as they are easier to program for.
