Just a few days ago, Fr. Liu Maochun, a #catholic priest of Mindong diocese (Fujian - #China) has been kidnapped by members of the Religious Affairs Bureau who arrested and they took him to an unknown location for #communist indoctrination. Please, pray!

wild that the biggest reason VR hasn't hit a stride and might end up dying as a technology is literally because facebook is trying to grab a stranglehold on it and use it to mine biometric data from non-consenting users

when the ipod first came out, i played with a friend's, and decided it was junk.

i was using an "archos", which was much much better at managing a large (more than 20 albums) music collection, and had tactile buttons that i could feel and operate from inside my pocket while i was biking.

when the ipod "won the market", i was like, "i guess they fixed those problems" and bought one. they had not fixed anything. and they never have!

an early lesson in "the most popular product is probably the worst" :)

So apparently some people really hate PDFs. Passionately. And I have no idea why.

Hit me with your anti-PDF arguments, friends. What's the problem?

Is it phones? Is it software? What is it about reading a PDF that is so bad?
