iPhone’s screen time feature would be much better if it focused on pickups, not time. The biggest problem with the iPhone is looking for a quick dopamine hit to fill white space.

Do the cars in GTA exist before the observer gets close enough? Yes; but not in absolute terms, only in the sense that they’re sitting in an algorithm which creates them when the observer looks:

+1. Olaf is great. My comment in the article was about early crypto investors broadly, not him. Disappointed it was contextualized as negative.
