Chad Dixon on Trying to Copyright Meta
I remember the French Connection company trying to copyright their four letter logo so nobody else tried to do a similar one. The result, they won... FCUK Trade Mark - not invalid - Intellectual Property - UK
Ian Barton on StarLink
All now set up and rolling with the dish up high. Performing well. I get between 150-200 down and about 30 up. No outages to speak of. You have to pay Starlink £500 for the dish, cable, mini tripod stand for mounting it on the ground, 110ft of power-over-ethernet cable and a router. Includes shipping from the USA. You have to pay upfront and wait until Starlink has a slot in its queue. (This makes sure that the system isn't overloaded with more users than capacity and that Starlink is available in your location.)
The monthly fee is £80, but there is no data cap. The Starlink app scans your field of view and tells you where it's obstructed. You plug in one end of the ethernet cable to the dish and the other end into the dish.
It supplies power to the dish from the provided router. Then plug your network cable into the second port of the supplied router. You use the Starlink app on your phone to log on and enable the dish. Once it's set up you don't have to use the supplied router, you can plug the dish cable into your own router.
Jeremy Harpham on The Verge’s Holiday Season Gift Ideas
Tech suggestions for gifts this year. Judging by the items I already have (8bitdo controller, Z Zlip 3, and others) this is going to get expensive if I look at them all. What do you fancy?
Chad Dixon on Portable Radios
I used to be glued to my portable world radio in my teens too. Loved listening to various SW stations around the planet, mostly late at night in bed. I did also have a mini transistor unit but never listened to it in class. Tsk tsk Ted! These days I get my World Radio fix with the free Radio Garden app. It has the easiest interface that I've ever used so far.
