My Google Glass XE rant (long read)

2021.09.28 15:10 Lost-Ferret My Google Glass XE rant (long read)

I was always fascinated by the concept of smart glasses and I always dreamed about getting Glass one day.

A few years ago I got a great deal on Glass XE-C and I finally got it. After playing with it for a bit, I realized that this is not exactly what I imagined it to be.

Google touted its video recording capability, but the goddamn thing dies in 15 minutes if you record a video. It overheats, constantly. MyGlass is a piece of s**t app that they have never updated since 2014 (iOS version). The only way to share cellular data connection is via tethering (at least on an iPhone)--so previously you would see this giant blue bar haunting you everywhere. Display prism is so fragile, its reflective foil peels off on its own, killing display (but I fixed that, at least).

Don't get me wrong, I still, from the bottom of my heart, love Glass XE. I love its design, I love the concept of a transparent display sitting just above your line of sight, I love how it's there when you need it and how it disappears when you don't. I love its colors, trackpad, and I even love its stereo buds!

I'm just furious that Google did everything they could to kill Glass XE--sell it as an exclusive, invite-only product with a hefty price tag, never fix its flaws such as fragile prism foil or crappy low-tier ARM processor, get into multiple scandals related to the fact (surprise!) that Glass has a camera and simply accept the faith of people being scared of that without even trying to defend their own product.

I'm mad that they actually fixed almost all of XE's flaws in Enterprise Editon, but now they only sell it to companies for the same $1500 tag with no consumer-oriented software available. I'm mad that they simply forgot that XE ever existed and the only kind of support it got were minor updates that didn't fix anything. It still runs Android 4.4 (I know about AOSP 5.1, but it's a custom firmware that Google has nothing to do with) for crying out loud. Even Nexus 4 from 2012 got Lollipop at least, and high-end wearable computer from 2014 still runs KitKat.

Some of the world's most hyped piece of tech I fell in love with now just sits in my drawer, collecting dust, and it makes me sad.

I truly believe that Google needs to release another XE version of Glass and simply sell it to everyone.

2021.09.28 15:10 susiecambria OZONE FORECASTING SEASON CONCLUDES -- Air quality challenges highlight wildfire, weather influences

News release from DEQ:
CONTACT: Irina Calos 804-698-4071 (Office) Irina.Calos@DEQ.Virginia.gov
RICHMOND, VA — As temperatures drop and days get shorter, the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) 2021 ozone pollution forecasting season has come to an end. Overall, air quality remains good throughout the Commonwealth, although Virginians experienced more poor air quality days in 2021 than in the previous year.
Virginians saw a record number of good air quality days in 2020 in part due to the reduction in traffic related to the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2021, ozone pollution levels were slightly higher as a result of increased traffic and smoke associated with wildfires in the western part of the country and Canada.
Ozone pollution forms when volatile organic compounds and nitrogen oxides in the atmosphere react on hot, sunny days. The main sources of these chemicals are typically motor vehicle exhaust, power plants, industrial emissions and solvents. This year, however, wildfire smoke contributed to elevated levels of both ozone and particulate pollution throughout much of the summer.
On four separate days, there were unhealthy ozone pollution readings at one or more of DEQ's air quality monitors throughout the state. This occurs when the average ozone concentration is greater than the 70 parts per billion standard, which can mean unhealthy conditions for some people, such as children, the elderly and those with heart or lung conditions. Monitors that measured high ozone pollution levels this year are in Northern Virginia, Stafford, Caroline and Chesterfield counties.
“Although we had a few more high ozone days in 2021 than we did in 2020, our long-term trend of achieving better air quality continues,” said DEQ Director David Paylor. “In past decades, we experienced far more bad air quality days each summer than we do now. But thanks to stronger controls on pollution and cleaner fuels, air quality continues to improve.”
“The challenges we experienced with our air quality this year show how environmental issues, such as wildfires, can affect people thousands of miles away,” said DEQ Air and Renewable Energy Director Mike Dowd.
Current regional air quality conditions and forecasts are available on DEQ’s website https://www.deq.virginia.gov/aimonitoring-assessments/air-quality-forecast.
Background DEQ issues daily air pollution forecasts and shares real-time air quality information using the Air Quality Index (AQI), a standardized color-coded system that helps differentiate the potential health impacts of air pollution. The AQI ranges from green (“good”) to purple (“hazardous”). Particulate pollution forecasts are issued year-round and ozone pollution forecasts are issued from April through September.

I just wanted to remind everyone about this simple fact.
Relationships are hard, getting to know someone should not be hard, it should not lead to emotional turmoil. If this stage is already hard how would a relationship look like?

Hello,
I recently became interested in linguistics and would like to read some of Chomsky's work. I'm wondering which book/paper would be a good place for me to start. My background is in software development and I have some familiarity with formal languages from a computer science perspective. Thanks in advance!
