WebAssembly is even worse than app stores.
There’s no way to check that you’re getting the same binary as anyone else at the same server. Maybe they just mine crypto every second Tuesday night on five random peeps.
Also with app stores you at least get to click yes before a rando stranger gets to run binaries on your machine.
@coastal_jelly As for audio quality, the Shanon Nyquist theorem basically says you can perfectly recreate the signal with enough samples.
Which is something I also find quite magical. By taking samples of the sound wave often enough, you can reconstruct it completely.
Vinyl also doesn't have perfect stereo separation, which can make a difference in spatial perception
@coastal_jelly yeah, the ceremony around putting a record on and sitting down to listen to it is lost with digital media. The vinyl item in itself is pretty cool, looks like am almost flat, slightly heavy, burnt pancake, but mysteriously produces beautiful sounds. I still buy CDs sometimes because I like to have the physical item and the album art with it.
having to wade through a minefield of different products hoping you find one that works is a problem brought to you by capitalism https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/mask-filtration-standards-marketplace-1.5974442
For non techie family, what #XMPP / #Matrix client do you suggest? I'm looking for something similiar to #Facebook / #WhatsApp in features (eg videocalls) and interface. It needs to be on #Android and #iOS, be #FOSS and *easy to use*.
Please boost as I'm sure many people are looking for alternatives for family right now.

Il est temps de remettre une couche pour avoir une #inclusivité des personnes souffrant de déficiences visuelles, je vois de moins en moins d'images avec description sur Masto.
Mettez des descriptions sur vos images, Mastodon a une fonction pour ça et le web aussi, vous permettez ainsi à des personnes n'ayant pas cette chance de participer à nos échanges !
Merci ! 💜
