    Wow. This guy needed to study 100 years of cinema history to discover that depth of field is important…?
    No. And if you're going to comment at all, try commenting in good faith next time. You might enjoy it.
  • Intel attempts to convert Apple fans in 'social experiment'

    So for Intel, gaslighting people is a "fun experiment".

    Yeah, that tracks. Kinda like the entire history of Windows PCs.

    Apple being anti-competitive again?
    More like Spotify sucking again. Always. Every day, all day, 24/7 three sixty-five.

    Another example of the weaknesses in Apple's beta testing system. Really? Not a single tester used Spotify? Aren't major popular apps automatically tested? I hate to think Apple knew about the problem and maliciously decided not to work with Spotify to fix it. :/
    "Work with Spotify"? Um, it's not Apple's job to keep Spotify from sucking. That's kind of a full-time gig for hundreds of people.

    The solution here is for Spotify to suck less or just get out of the business. Not to blame Apple.
  • Rick Astley blown away by use of his song in 'Ted Lasso'

    Yeah right at the start I knew they would actually end up with the clip. And sure enough.

    anyway, this second series is turning into a bit of a sad soap.

    the thing I have liked about streaming is you get decent story arcs over a season. Truly great stories with a beginning middle and end.

    But the trouble is some shows get so popular the producers can’t help themselves and rush about trying to come up with ideas for another season.  Thing is, a weak subsequent season(s) cheapens what came before.  It’s called jumping the shark.

    I hear they are making a second season of The Queen’s Gambit. What a complete and utter travesty.
    This, of course, is not at all true with Ted Lasso, none of it, as anyone with even a passing familiarity with the show knows. The story arcs for all the characters were plotted out for three seasons before they ever started making the show. There was no "rushing about", and there's nothing weak about this season, either.
