    A messed-up infinity symbol is actually a great logo for their legacy. Because it's kind of shitty and will be forever.

    So I got a Pixel 5a with 5G a couple weeks ago, and I've noticed that 5G... sucks?

    Like, I'm in the Washington DC area, you'd think if anywhere would have decent 5G coverage it would be here, but it is constantly eating shit and will usually eventually just drop back down to 4G LTE and do way better

    Is this just how it's going to be for a while?

    depends on what network you're on and their 5G coverage in that area really

    sounds like how 4G was when it first rolled out to me, way oversold and not quite fully there for the first year or two

    So Zucc renamed the ... Over company, not the actual apps... To the name of his new second life clone? Is this an attempt to trick search engines, what with all the whistleblower stuff and bad press about Facebook the app and the company?

    I think the original artist might actually have some options here, maybe. NFTs do not contain the actual artwork. They contain a URL. If the URL is pointed at the artist's server and they rename the image, the NFT breaks. If the NFThief is hosting the image, the artist can hit their host with a DMCA infringement notice.

    Evil cackling while doing either of these things is optional.

    Wait, the NFT just points to a URL?

    The only thing more ridiculous than that Meta presentation is the fact that Zuck thinks he's the right person for it. Michael Cera couldn't be that awkward if he channeled every on screen character he's ever played all at once.

    I don’t know what you mean.

    seriously

    like who on earth did the viz on this
    the lighting is just so incredibly strange and unflattering

    zuck is already a weird looking guy, but putting him in weird fake environments with bizarre lighting conditions just makes the entire hour and twenty minute presentation really unsettling

    God that bit at the end. Is he intentionally hitting close to the one of the actual criticisms of NFTs? That you can just save the image of you want a copy, even if you don't """"own"""" it. One of those, so close to the point yet missing it completely things.

    Much like cryptocurrency and the fine art market, the actual answer is: market manipulation and money laundering.

    uh, that seems weird, are you sure the volume isn't just low? 12 changed some volume slider functionality (ring tone/notification volume isn't tied to media volume and vice versa, they're separate sliders again). also, you're not trying to drive headphones that are some crazy level of ohms from just the headphone jack, since they'll sound pretty quiet from that alone

    No I'm using the same headphones (cheapish Sony earbuds because this phone can't drive my old hd518s without sounding hollow much less my hd58x jubilees) and have the volume maxed

    It's less of a hollow quiet sound though honestly. It sounds like the audio processing is jacked up. Everything is just muddy and garbled. Listening to the new mastodon over my YouTube music subscription. Which sounds great and clear on my PC but that's through an external dac/amp into my hd58x

    I would test different earbuds but I only have this pair.

    Weirdly I think that the latest Android 12 update made my Pixel 6 sound absolutely barely audible at anything but maximum volume, and even then it can't compete with any semi-loud ambient noise whatsoever. I really hope that this was just an oopsy that they fix quick, because listening to media is like what I use my phone for most.

    Just tested YouTube Music on my 4a with my KZN Pros. No problems with audio quality here.

    I wasn't listening to Mastodon though.

    My pixel 3a has very weird sound over the speakers after updating to Android 12 too

    But it is three and a half years old, I think, so it might be degrading

    You folks having android 12 audio issues should try turning on the Accessibility->Sound Amplifier setting, see if that helps.
