Ladies and gentlemen, we have a toe. I repeat, we have a toe.
I have an old first gen Kindle PW that I jailbroke and had to fall back to after I dropped my more recent model (oops!)
On a lark I decided to put KOReader on the thing, and darn it, I wish I’d done it sooner. Setting aside all the fancy config settings, wireless Calibre connectivity is just crazy convenient. Should’ve done it sooner!
It goes to show how open devices can be better and have greater longevity. But, you know. Amazon.
Finally got around to playing Never Alone (thanks Steam Deck!) and while it’s not flawless (the platforming and controls are just a bit clumsy for my taste), its flaws are more than made up for by the story, the beauty of the artwork, and the cultural insights. It’s a remarkable example of games as art and absolutely worth playing. I’ll definitely be picking up the sequel when it comes along!
I’ve known about the Wilhelm Scream for years, but here a sound engineering describes the process of recovering sound effects from old tapes, including the full recording session of the famous Scream!
Re-reading “Product Leadership” by Banfield, Eriksson, and Walkingshaw, and I can’t figure out if I just unknowingly internalized a ton from my first reading years ago, or if I ended up learning all the same lessons, but after ten years in the role, it’s definitely been an object lesson in confirmation bias…
