    Apple seems determined to alienate themselves from users and collaborators alike.

    50% on content they don't own or produce? I'd tell them to get stuffed.

    The biggest thing they could do in this regard is add native support for file systems like EXT4 to Windows itself.

    Cool idea, but it's 100% irrelevant to this article. The title said "access your Linux files from Windows 10", which made me think of Windows adding file system support so that if you dual booted you could see your Linux partitions right inside Windows Explorer. Since the concept of the update is to do exactly that, well, within the Linux subsystem for Windows anyway, it didn't seem irrelevant.

    Seem weird too until you understand what Amazon was trying to do. They would get a $1 billion from the state to one of their headquarters to be place built and in-turn they will bring in 25,000 high paying jobs. But they will not bring high paying just but low paying jobs and not come close to that 25,000 new jobs. Amazon has the money to build new offices. They don't need hand out from the government and CON the tax payers with ###### jobs.

    Unions are a joke these days and don't represent anything except greed. It's a dead and obsolete idea that's only ruining industries in the US. Manufacturing and automotive is a prime example of how out of control it's become. Eventually the companies tank and all those workers lose their jobs. In this case, sounds like it's preventing jobs from even being created. Curious what ridiculous demands they had.

    They used to lead the browser industry in terms of features. Then devs adopted their features and people moved on because Opera refused to do add-ons for the longest, if I remember right. How far they've fallen...

    Google can kiss the darkest part of my white a.. Anyway, they arbitrarily decided to to revoke one of my apps due to abusing advertising something or another. Here is the punchline: it was free and had no ads. I appealed it only to be ignored and later be sent a survey on how the process went. I wasn’t kind. If this is what they were doing to other people, then this is just bogus crap. The same app was approved by Apple and never suspended.

    Oh man, I hope it's as good as EA's system, banning harsh language like "white man" lol.

    That was unsupported and discouraged as it could lead to fs corruption. This is *official* support.

    Go the way of the Bluetooth, you won't miss the wiiiiire. Headphone jack is dying, time to get over it or buy cheap adapters. Besides, there's 4 frigging speakers on this thing. Yeah, let's keep getting rid of useful features for no reason and calling it progress.

    Given how many of my friends find Apple Music extremely confusing and frustrating (I don't know why, because I haven't cared enough to ask), I'm not sure anyone would recommend it to me.

    Both the blog post and the technical research paper mention the "Our largest model, GPT-2, is a 1.5B parameter Transformer", with the GitHub release being a 117M version (https://github.com/openai/gpt-2). My article exactly states that "a "smaller version of GPT-2", and some sampling code. The training weights, dataset, and training codes will not be made public", so I don't know what you're on about.

    So I'm going to say that... This write-up is a dramatic bastardization of the actual facts of the news story. There aren't 1.5 BILLION parameters in the model, and the model is available (it's open-source and published on GitHub)... the training data, however, is not. An excerpt of the underlying metadata-tagged training data is available, too (or at least instructions on downloading it separately) but the entire data set is not. They will gradually release parts of their training data as the tranches get academically peer-reviewed before being openly published. Food for thought: this seems like a PR stunt to bring attention to the researchers. It instills fear while also demonstrating societal restraint. But as anything these days ("national emergency" anyone?) it's mostly hyperbole.

    Typo means typographical error. You need to either replace the word ”typo” with ”typographical” or drop the word ”error” in the title.

    I'm not quoting anyone here, as the quoting system makes things unreadable. But I do want to add some nuance to the "which OS is better" discussion. First of all, this discussion seems to concern usage of the OS for desktop purposes. Let's keep that in mind and compare correctly. Indeed, it's up to the user to define which OS suits him/her better. Each OS has pros and cons. However, saying that one OS is better than another because of which software is available for it, is extrapolating a bit. There are less games on Linux. Does that make Windows a better OS than Linux? No. It does say however, that Linux has less support from the gaming industry. There is no Photoshop on Linux. Does that make Windows a better OS than Linux? No. It just indicates that Adobe doesn't support Linux. A more correct comparison would be to compare a clean install of Windows with a clean install of a Linux distribution. At its base, Linux is a very good and robust OS, which can suit a lot of user's needs. Now if said user needs platform specific software which isn't available on Linux, that doesn't give that user much of a choice.

    I actually like Google's recommended for you section best. Gives me the news I want to read better than Google/Apple's generic news, driving the usual biased political content. I feel exactly the opposite. When someone tailors news for me and my political views, I fell that I become trapped in that bubble. Having a generic news feed gives variety, and you can filter out what you don't want to read by yourself.
