Bloomberg: Electric Buses Are Hurting the Oil Industry
Dan Lyke:

Bloomberg: Electric Buses Are Hurting the Oil Industry. Apparently China is adding 1,900 new electric buses a week, every thousand buses means 500 fewer barrels of oil per day, and that's making an impact on global fuel demand.




The Renegade Game Designer Who Aims to Challenge the Industry’s Attitudes Toward Sex
Dan Lyke:

The Renegade Game Designer Who Aims to Challenge the Industry’s Attitudes Toward Sex. Says Robert Yang:

The game industry’s stance is that sex (and especially sexual violence) is okay as long as your game uses it solely for titillation, and never because it cares about the issue. That’s really fucked up. They specifically ban games like mine that are about consent, intimacy and sexual cultures — unless, of course, I add 40 hours of gun combat to it.

All the geeks on my social media feeds seem to be excited about some film that's coming out at the end of the week... But this one doesn't seem to be playing anywhere near me. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S0fa6fAFj3A

RT Marnanel Thurman -- #fbpe @marnanel, Replying to @stavvers

I think the problem is there's no emoji for penis, which I find really strange

Marnanel Thurman -- #fbpe @marnanel

Although Unicode *does* contain Egyptian hieroglyphs "D52 phallus" and "D53 liquid issuing from phallus"

But I thought the interesting bit was this commentary on 130b9:

julia hamilton @theacaciahouse

it's a sign contraction (sorry to be a nerd) - combining the sounds represented by the penis sign (mt) & the rope (s).

Sooo that's a common thing in Egyptian hieroglyphs, then?




Frostpunk
Dan Lyke:

The Industrial Apocalypse of 'Frostpunk' Is More Truth Than Fiction. An interesting review of the new game Frostpunk, and what it says about the fading of heavy industry in the United States.F

Dan Lyke:

Largo Florida cops used dead man’s finger in attempt to access his phone:

[The victim's fiance Victoria] Armstrong, 28, happened to be at Sylvan Abbey Funeral Home in Clearwater the day two detectives showed up with Phillip’s phone, she said. They were taken to Phillip’s corpse. Then, they tried to unlock the phone by holding the body’s hands up to the phone’s fingerprint sensor.

Dan Lyke:

Spoofing cell networks and GPS signals with a $5 USB to VGA adapter. Using USB 3.0 VGA adapters based on the Fresco Logic FL2000 chip as a sofware defined radio transmitter.

Osmo-fl2k:

After reverse-engineering the USB protocol of the FL2000 in 2016, Steve Markgraf discovered through experimentation that it is possible to operate the FL2000 in a way that both horizontal and vertical synchronization are disabled, thus creating a continous stream of samples. This work resulted in osmo-fl2k, which so far was used to transmit low-power FM, DAB, DVB-T, GSM, UMTS and GPS signals.

18 year old who hacked CIA Directory John Brennan's AOL account when he was 15 sentenced to 2 years. There's probably a lesson from Brennan and Deutch &c about where we should get our CIA directors from... https://gizmodo.com/cyber-terr...a-director-john-brenn-1825443902

Dan Lyke:

Serving on a jury gave me tremendous respect for the critical thinking skills and rationality of my fellow citizens. Nextdoor has destroyed all that, and more.

Oregon Grew More Cannabis Than Customers Can Smoke. Now Shops and Farmers Are Left With Mountains of Unwanted Bud.

Hey, look, agriculture growing commodities is a crappy business to be in!

Much like grapes, I predict a split market, with big brands selling aggregated commodity grades (eg: the central valley wine brands, 2 Buck Chuck, Gallo and the like) and a boutique "wine country" like premium tourist experience.
