Sometimes I'm afraid the NFT guys will actually be right and there will be a massive market for them just because they exist.

I guess that guy is just unaware of the perpetual "did/do QR codes actually get used?" debate that pops up at least a few times a year.

NFC almost definitely has far wider consumer usage.

I think QR codes had their mainstream moment with COVID and their use for contact tracing (at least here they did).

the qr codes are sometimes used here by online shopping sites to connect with your bank-id for payment options.

but it's not a very common solution, there are much easier options available

i live in a seaside town where second home WANKERS flock in with their teslas in the summer.

muskian aesthetics seem positively ozymandian when confronted with a thick layer of sea salt condensation and repeated salvos of seagull shit.

So, I just walked past an Apple store at opening time and the staff literally clapped and cheered as the doors opened.

WTF?

I would personally walk the guy who came up with that to the guillotine and support the interment of those staff who participate in a re-education camp.

The best part is they colluded with Neelie Kroes, who back then was supposed to regulate such companies :trumps

She also denied this multiple times on national TV when 'conspiracy theorists' confronted her with these 'falsehoods'.
Those conspiracy theorists were then rightfully cancelled from talkshows for spreading fake news and disinformation.

You gotta love how petulant some of these articles about an incoming recession sound.

You can tell the super tight labor market that shifted some power back to employees for the first time in years really got under some people's skin. There's a real "just you wait, you'll learn your place" tone to them lol (looking at you WSJ Op-Ed page).

Quote from: puck.news
—Netflix and shill: It’s hard not to see Netflix’s ad deal with Microsoft as a precursor to a possible acquisition (if the government would allow that after the Activision Blizzard deal). The combination of Xbox, all its game studios, Minecraft, and Netflix would be super powerful within the world’s third largest company. Netflix is relatively cheap these days, and remember, co-C.E.O. Reed Hastings previously sat on the Microsoft board.

Very soon the World Bank, WEF and IMF will point to China has a wonderful example of how to deal with the inflation and energy crisis.
"We can all learn a lot from China" the economic experts will say. The Wapo headlines: "China takes bold steps, when is Biden stepping up to the plate?"

“Realistically, there are probably a bunch of people at the company who shouldn’t be here,” Zuckerberg said on the June 30th call, according to a recording obtained by The Verge. “And part of my hope by raising expectations and having more aggressive goals, and just kind of turning up the heat a little bit, is that I think some of you might just say that this place isn’t for you. And that self-selection is okay with me.”

Comments on Workplace, the company’s internal version of Facebook for employees, came flying in. “This is war-time, we need a war-time CEO,” one wrote. “Beast mode activated,” a second employee posted.

Quote
But Zuckerberg did deliver on the promise of transparency: his employees now understood how he really felt about them.

“I think during a lot of the COVID period, I kind of bias[ed] towards more flexibility and convenience for people,” he said. But now, he’d noticed people making personal appointments in the middle of the day, making it hard for even the CEO to get everyone to attend a meeting.

Self-selection is, again, code for a company in trouble.  Which we just saw with Netflix and Tesla.
