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???

From a video producer’s perspective, YouTube appears to be atrocious. Can I get an amen??

The notion of “accounts” and “channels” is just far-fetched. Nothing makes sense. YouTube remains one of the biggest, fanciest, disjointed pieces of software I’ve ever used. Just a big damn mess.

Too bad people don’t do things right. Instead they pile onto what’s popular in order to make a fast buck and then we’re stuck with the consequences forever. That’s the capitalist way, isn’t it.

Google’s voice typing works differently on my Pixel 5 compared to my Pixel 4. Why is that?πŸ€”πŸ€¨πŸ§

My Pixel 4 does voice typing much better than my Pixel 5. Is it a hardware issue? Is Google software designed to function differently on different hardware? Why does the software perform worse on newer hardware?

Google Voice desperately needs a new client application

I didn’t even feel like I need to say anything else. 🀣 Yes there have been improvements but Jesus Christ. It lags so far behind in features. Either discontinue the client or sell it to somebody or something. It’s obvious that you aren’t giving a damn about it right now.

Problem on VMware Horizon getting my computer’s built-in microphone to work when I plug in headphones

For me, the microphone worked when I plugged in the headphones BEFORE starting VMware Horizon.  When I plugged in the headphones AFTER starting Horizon the microphone did not work.

When I plug in these headphones without running Horizon my host OS, an Ubuntu variant, prompts me to choose whether it is a pair of headphones only or if it is a headset with a microphone attached.Β  I’m guessing that it’s possible that when I plug in the headphones after starting Horizon my host OS decides it’s a headset with a built-in mic and then Horizon tries to use a mic from the headphones, ignoring my computer’s built-in mic.Β  Just a guess!Β  πŸ™‚
