Adobe changes to its terms of sse: Creatives Will Have none of that nonsense!

The dust-up began with concerns about content access.

Was this a prelude to a future where Adobe could pilfer their ideas and content to fuel their fancy new AI art tools and definitively replace creatives? The lack of clarity fueled the fire.

What was Samsung Thinking with the Release of the Samsung Galaxy Fit3?

The Samsung Galaxy Fit3 is what you get when an Apple Watch dates a Samsung Galaxy Watch, and neither of them is bothered with contraception.

With a 1.6-inch AMOLED screen, the band (or tracker) as devices like this one are categorised – is a cross between a watch (but too small to be one) and a tracker or band (too large to be one).

One long telephone call overseas – a short story, not 100% fiction

I stared briefly at the call duration, 59:28. Reached for my ear instinctively. Slowly massaging it. Dissipating the heat from having held the mobile phone against it for so long.
