We need a replacement for Bluetooth!

Bluetooth has always been a horrible, unreliable technology. We need to replace it with something that is based on some kind of standard level of performance and design.

How to fix ERROR: Couldn’t connect to Docker daemon at http+docker://localhost – is it running?

Thanks for the tip! 🙂 For me it was because I wasn’t sudo’ing.

Bluetooth is mostly s***. Let’s be honest.

Folks, I’ve tried all kinds of ways to make Bluetooth not suck and it just doesn’t work. I’m officially done with it.

I guess maybe I was expecting too much of it. But then there’s the way the OS responds to it. Maybe the OS is the culprit! I could see that. Because just turning on a Bluetooth headset shouldn’t make my entire system fall to pieces. But it does. Because I’m trying to leverage technology that is not mature. That’s what I think.

What do you think???

My thoughts about the Google Pixel 5

I’ve had this phone for several weeks now and I have to say I’m fairly disappointed.

The touch sensor is great. It should never have left. But that’s about the only improvement that I’ve seen. It takes longer to boot up than the Pixel 4 or even Pixel 3 it seems. The processor seems way slower on the active task. The voice-to-text typing is very sluggish compared to the quick response from the Pixel 4.
