My wife hit a bug reported in August with a new where Do Not Disturb still plays notification sounds. Only way to silence it is to manually mute the combined notification/ringtone volume, which in practice means she's accidentally radio silenced half the time.

She says her 2018 mid range phone is vastly superior to a 2022 flagship 95% of the time.

How bad can things be at when "DND still disturbs" is a) not caught by regression tests and b) takes months to fix?

Fantastic and accessible new comment article in Nature by all-star writers @jasonhickel, Giorgios Kallis, Tim Jackson, @jks and others.

There is much still to research, explore, expose, advocate and win, but the momentum is growing every day.

"In our view, the question is no longer whether growth will run into limits, but rather how we can enable societies to prosper without growth, to ensure a just and ecological future. Let’s pave the way."

Yet new leaks about the immorality of fossil fuel corps.

For example, BP claims publicly to be part of the solution but internally says it has “no obligation to minimize GHG emissions”.

needs to be first cut out of all climate policy discussions (how they are allowed have any lobby groups in meetings is beyound me) then nationalized, and then ramped down.

There will never be a time when they will voluntarily stop destroying the planet for profit.
