Fortnite Shmortnite

What’s with Fortnite? Yeah it’s fun to play with all your buddies and ride down the hill in a shopping cart while shouting expletives. But. The graphics are bad, they’re boring, can we get some cooler weapons? Why is everything so cookie-cutter? I miss well polished games that you pay $60 dollars of your hard earned cash for so you can enjoy really cool weapons and graphics while obliterating your friends and enemies. Bring back trash talking lobbies, let me talk to the random strangers that attack my squad, make free weapons that you can get by giving up on showers and chores IRL but also have ones we can buy for those of us that have jobs and can’t spare the time wasting hours slaving away for a virtual skin that does nothing. Give me a fighting chance against the smelly 12 year olds that get home from school and spend their un-showered nights grinding on Fortnite. If somebody wants to pay for a badass weapon that lets you mow down the competition then let them! In the real world if you want things for free they’re called coupons and you can spend your time finding them and then redeem them or you can work and make more money so you can just buy things without worrying about coupons, we have options, so why not make them in Fortnite? Have a free version for people who want that and a paid version for people who want that, stop this one way suits all crap because it doesn’t. What do you think? Let me know in the comments!

Note 9 still slower than year old iPhone X

The shiny new Note 9 with all it’s fancy writing features and giant screen is till slower than the iPhone X even though it came out almost a year ago. A Geekbench reading from Tom’s Guide states as much. Samsung still can’t compete with Apples processors even a year later, and it still runs Android, the same operating system millions of other smartphones run with barely any differentiation besides a few features. Samsung may have a highly modified version of Android on their Galaxy devices but a tricked out Honda with a turbo, performance exhaust and racing seats is still a Honda, meanwhile Apple has the Ferrari.

P.S. I realize for the Samsung Galaxy owners out there this might seem harsh, I’ll admit those Note Screens are gorgeous and they’ve been gorgeous for years, I’ve been jealous of them and the S series for years. Glad iPhone finally switched to OLED although I wish they had a bit more punch like the Samsung Notes and Galaxies.

SMH Facebook

Can we ever really trust Facebook again? They’ve been selling our data for years without offering a paid subscription as at least a second option and for years all we wanted was to see our friends latest status update but no. All we got was ad after ad, fake news and stupid pages we liked but didn’t want to have constantly blasted into our eyeballs, in a few short years Facebook had turned into social cancer. These people really don’t care about us or our memories, our pictures, our lives. Facebook and Zuck only care about the almighty dollar, what they can make off the backs of our information. I’m not saying they shouldn’t make money for what they do but don’t put money above your customer, above people because when you do that you’ll lose every time. Why do you think Apple is the most successful company of all time? Because they realize that their customer is most important, not profits, yes profits are important but betray the customer and it can be very hard, usually impossible to gain their trust back especially when corporations are already viewed as soulless titans incapable of listening to their customers. Apple has made so much money because they respect their customer and their privacy, the FBI has tried to get Apple to betray their customers and gain access to locked iPhones many times and yet Apple has never caved. Zuckerberg would have probably given access at the first request because he respects other companies and the government 100 times more than he respects the people even though neither of them are the source of Facebooks massive excess riches. Can we ever trust Facebook again? Don’t think so. Should it be turned into a non profit or run by the people? Maybe so. What do you think? Let us know in the comments!
