For more than a decade, Stoya has been one of the most recognizable names in porn. But these days, like many in the adult industry, she is as subject to the whims of the creator economy as any YouTube or Instagram influencer.As porn has become more like social media, its stars are learning the hard way about the instability of creating content online, ever dependent on opaque platforms with changing rules. The gatekeepers of the creator economy are not just social media platforms, but the infrastructure providers behind them. Financial firms like banks, credit card companies, and pay-out providers are now becoming the arbiters of what’s allowed.What’s permitted on social media is at once ill-defined and...

Until last year, Stuart was a man with ties to many countries—an exemplar of this multinational age of business. He was a Briton who’d lived since 1996 in Japan, working as a flight attendant on international flights. His employer through all those years, United Airlines, was American.Stuart worked under a US contract, which meant that he was represented by a US union, the Association of Flight Attendants (AFA). He paid US income taxes and contributed to social security. After the Covid-19 pandemic hit, he even continued getting his salary under the US government’s payroll support program, which disbursed $40 billion to US airlines on the condition that they didn’t lay off employees until Sep. 30,...

Reuters reports that the test will include thousands of businesses in the city.

Image: Gogoro Gogoro is the latest EV company to jump on the trend of going public by merging with a special purpose acquisition company, or SPAC. The Taiwanese e-scooter and battery-swapping tech startup announced Thursday that it will combine with a SPAC called Poema Global Holdings, which is listed on the Nasdaq stock exchange. The deal — which is expected to close in the first quarter of 2022 — will net Gogoro around $550 million, and will value the startup at more than $2.3 billion.
It’s a huge step for the scooter company, which has been rapidly expanding this year. In April, Gogoro announced a partnership with the largest two-wheeler manufacturer in the world to bring its electric scooter and...

A la base, je comptais vraiment adapter un vieil iMac comme écran, mais comme je manque de place pour des écrans cathodiques et que mon seul iMac G3 compatible est un Flower Power, je vais juste vous présenter le projet. Une personne a donc décidé de proposer le nécessaire pour réutiliser un iMac G3 comme écran classique. Trois choses à dire pour commencer. Premièrement, ça ne fonctionne que sur les iMac G3 avec un lecteur slot-in. Sur les premiers iMac (ceux avec un tiroir), c’est nettement plus simple. Avec eux, il y a une prise DA-15 et il suffit donc du bon adaptateur VGA pour sortir une image sur l’iMac. Deuxièmement, il faut se méfier d’une chose : les ordinateurs récents ne...

Entre ses partisans, au premier rang desquels on retrouve l'Allemagne, qui ne veulent y voir qu'un projet économique, et ses détracteurs (Pologne, États baltes) qui estiment que sa construction devrait être arrêtée pour diversifier les approvisionnements en gaz de l'UE.

Ari Lennox “Pressure”
There’s a lot to find charming about “Pressure” – the pleasing curls of the melody, Ari Lennox’s coy delivery, the light and relaxed tone of the groove – but the thing that puts this song over the top for me is a small detail. It’s the way a small snippet of vocal sample is dropped in as sort of punctuation, an unintelligible but raw and raspy vocal that contrasts sharply with Lennox’s more silky vocal tone. It’s deployed brilliantly but sounds like it might have started as a happy accident, like some stray fragment that happened to fall at the right spot of a ProTools session. It’s an unexpected texture that grabs the ear and highlights the best qualities of...

When the feature first launched in beta, Sony provided a list of requirements, making it clear that you wouldn’t necessarily be able to just grab any SSD and chuck it in your PS5. We’ve tried to list as many of the compatible ones as we can, as stock has seemingly been hit pretty hard — the more options you have, the more likely you are to actually get your hands on one.
Which SSDs work with the PS5?
Sony’s main requirements are that the SSD is PCIe Gen4 and at least 250GB. However, Sony makes it very clear that...

Introduced by City Council member Monica Rodriguez, the motion instructs several city departments and task forces — including the Department of Transportation, the Bureau of Street Services, and the Los Angeles Police Department Street Racing Task Force — to recommend traffic calming measures in places with frequent illegal street racing.
That could include street humps, rumble strips, raised center medians, curb extensions, and traffic circles. Rodriguez says preventative infrastructure measures like these will be more effective than enforcement efforts.

Making keyboards is easy, right? Just wire up a bunch of switches matrix-style to a microcontroller, slap some QMK and a set of keycaps on there and you’re good to go. Well, yeah, that might work for cushier environments like home offices and Hackaday dungeons, but what if you need to give input under water, in a volatile area, or anywhere else you’d have to forego the clacking for something hermetically sealed? Mechanical switches can only take you so far — at some point, you have to go optical.
