Wallet challenge

30 Jun 2020 1 minute read comments lowededwookie

After my previous post (Well that was fun) I've decided I need a new wallet. The problem is that I'm having trouble finding one that meets my needs. I need a wallet that does all of this: Mac client iOS client Steem support Hive support Loopring sup...

Well that was fun.

Atomic Wallet is pretty much a failed experiment now. I've been turned right off it. It started out with an issue where I couldn't work out the wording of the interface. It seems like a drunkard had developed it. Anyone with any ounce of intelligenc...

If you think Apple isn't open then watch this

30 Jun 2020 1 minute read comments lowededwookie

Full interview It feels like I've done nothing recently but flogging a dead horse. The open source commenters here love to say that Apple doesn't care about your privacy and that it's nothing more than a marketing gimmick. So now the dead horse is g...

You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

Quick question... Are these two statements the same? I hate Apple because I don't trust it and I hate black people because I don't trust them If you said "No" then buckle up because it's going to be a bumpy ride. Both of these are statements of p...

Why anti-Apple rhetoric is wrong

28 Jun 2020 9 minute read comments lowededwookie

So the other day I wrote a post called Do people really want privacy? I wanted to try and explain to people why ignoring Apple is a bad idea if you make the claim that you value privacy so much. I looked at what Apple is currently doing and what Appl...

My move to Atom is finally working

24 Jun 2020 2 minute read comments lowededwookie

I've tried the Atomic Wallet since it was announced that Publish0x recommends it. I've seen review after review and article after article about it. But my experience has been less than stellar. The biggest issue I had was a complete inability to move...

Do people really want privacy?

24 Jun 2020 5 minute read comments lowededwookie

Look in the News section or the New section of Publish0x and you'll see many a post about Brave and how awesome it is especially when it comes to privacy. It is a great browser. On my Mac it is my default browser and once iOS 14 comes out it will be...

Apple just shot the hamster

23 Jun 2020 4 minute read comments lowededwookie

Since the wheel of desktop computing, Intel has been the hamster running the show. Sure AMD has been on the scene as has Motorola but Motorola was only on the Mac scene not the wider PC scene. But the hamster is now on life support after Apple shot i...

Don't fear an AI end of world

22 Jun 2020 1 minute read comments lowededwookie

I love the idea of AI. Unfortunately we are so far from great AI that I wonder if it ever will come. When it does come however we mustn't fear an AI uprising because it's never going to happen. There's a comment in this really cool TED Talk that say...

Decisions decisions decisions

20 Jun 2020 3 minute read comments lowededwookie

So I've been looking between my Hive account and my Publish0x account and I've noticed something quite interesting which I feel is making a decision a little easier. I joined with Steem in November 2019 and started to make some decent amounts from my...
