The Verge shows a tracking-consent message when visiting the site from the EU. Most people will click "I Accept" to make it go away, but if you don't and hide the message via CSS, you won't be tracked and the site is way faster: 32 vs 5 secs load time 61 vs 2 JS files 2 vs 1 MB

It’s great that they seem to be taking these issues seriously.

Holy crap - that’s literally the exact model of printer I had with my first computer in 1990, and even that was well used. Unbelievable that they still make them!

It’s never been harder to be a parody account.

I don’t disagree with you about the state of cheesy thumbnails on YouTube videos these days… unfortunately that’s the world we’re in because it has been proven to work and it’s a business for them. His aren’t worse than, say, Linus Sebastian’s, for what it’s worth. 🤷🏼‍♂️

That’s the link you couldn’t find, right? Did you ever manage to dig it up?

The overall winner for me, by the way, was the Galaxy S9+, with the iPhone X second. I only once even considered the Pixel as the best for one photo, but ultimately gave my choice to (what ended up being) the S9+.

Interesting phone camera comparison video from MKBHD. Based on this test, I'd get an S9 if I liked Android or a iPhone X if I liked iOS, but wouldn't consider the Pixel just for its photography chops.

We’re the screws hard to turn at all? Did they mismatch the threads between the screws and the holes or something?

At any rate, Apple did take care of it in the end (as they typically do), but it was seemingly kind of a painful process. Hopefully just had screws from a particularly bad batch and this isn’t a problem with all of these mounts.

The guy carefully and gently removed screws that were *not* particularly tight and had several break off... it appears the biggest concern is some manufacturing defect in the (user-installable) VESA mount screws which can take down the entire machine. Seems like a legit concern.

Last bit of advice: being straight up without being a jerk gets you what you want. Not sure they would have fixed it had I been irrational and “lost it.” Be kind to people. It’s just a good thing to do.

That’s pretty bad on Apple’s part. I’d like to use the VESA mount adapter with iMac Pro. You’ve got me thinking I should see if I can find quality screws instead of using the crappy ones in the box. Do you know what size they are and/or where one could acquire them?

Have you seen this? Apparently Apple ships the worst screws ever made for their VESA mount adapter. That’s concerning.

Deleting and reinstalling didn’t help either, FYI. I’m using the latest iOS - 11.3.1 on iPhone 8 Plus.

The latest update to the Speedtest iOS app keeps showing the privacy/GDPR screen and I can’t get past it. It reappears immediately after clearing it.

Wow... just wow. I'd like to see proof of this along with a plausible technical explanation, but can you imagine the fallout if, say, Apple were doing this? I think people expect Amazon, Facebook, and Google to be creepy, but this is next-level.
