fucksakes, so tired of the 24/7 news about the goddamn orange blob. don’t want to see them though they’re everywhere.

im here this morning looking at the sale of the chrysler building, brexit approaching, coal plants closing due to cheaper gas wind and solar, carlos ghosn, taiwan vs china, computer models saying sell everything, vietnam internet rules, pg&e facing possible bankruptcy, turkey, the supreme court, maduro about to start another six year term (poor venezuela), salvini goes to poland....


anyone else? anyone? bueller? anyone?

ah yes

the glow of phosphorescence, and cathode rays chafing one’s retinas

like vinyl, it looks warmer maaaaan

microLED is basically self-lighting (like oled) without the degradation of organic compounds and like 30 times brighter? lightweight (no glass), borderless (no bezel), and scalable as tiles.

promising as portable tv of large proportions, but also for increased battery life in small devices

samsung showed the giant wall tv but without gaps (last year it had gaps) plus a 75” home version (so to speak) plus hangable tiles as pictures

eta: apple apparently has 300 engineers developing this tech on their own

similarly to your aversion to trump i’ve long checked out of tech blogs and the like. if i am to keep my sanity, you understand.
also, you soon come to the realisation that most of those people have no clue about what they’re talking about.

well first of all, the Russia vs. Ukraine clash.
There's been a war going on in Ukraine since 2015, resulting in Crimea breaking away from Ukraine and being absorbed by Russia. Though Russians never claimed it was them attacking Ukrainian regions, they said those were just separatists wanting to exit Ukraine and joining Russia.
Then there's this whole operation called Hybrid war, maybe you've heard about it. Russia is paying trolls to stir shit all around European interwebz to undermine the position of European Union and to inject insecurity into people's minds. I see it around Facebook everyday - anonymous trolls attacking liberal values, spreading fear of immigrants and saying how Russia is doing great and how Putin is the greatest emperor. And the sad thing is that people are buying it and the result is that 10% of the people here in Slovakia would vote for an openly fascist political party.
It's terrifying.

And Orban has turned Hungary, which was a very successful emerging market, into yet another dictatorship. He's banned free press (or, better said, his oligarchs has bought out majority of newspapers and newsportals) and he's also spreading fear of non-existent immigrants who want to "destroy the traditional Hungarian culture"

believe me, Europe has been nuts lately.

oh yeah im aware of the general ukraine situation and europe in the throes of various right wing populist waves under putinks influence but i lost track of the ukranian ship seizure business, in part due to american lack of response, which makes it not get fed into the news funnel here.

which is precisely why im trying to remove the trumpy blinders— they can be too much distraction from what’s going on anywhere he’s not involved.

speaking of which, looks like may is fucked...

Honestly can't see it. There'd be too much uproar from the hardliner gammons. Funny thing is, if they were that confident they could win a second referendum they'd have it. However, they know that the mess being made the negotiations this time round have soured many a people's opinio of it.
