Thread the Needle Through - kristophine - Longmire (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
The summer air that night was close, a little stifling. Walt shifted on the seat of his truck; he was too hot everywhere he was touching the leather. The road stretching in front of him gave way to gravel as he turned off onto the old spur that bordered the McGinty place.
“Some fuckin’ truck,” the rancher had growled on the phone. “God knows what they’re here for. Probably smoking some goddamned dope. Get them the hell off my land.”

New iPhones, new Galaxies: who's the bigger copycat? • Yahoo News
David Pogue is a brave, brave man:
<p>First, I made up a list of every major feature that’s standard on smartphones today. Pinch-to-zoom. Auto-rotating screen. Slow-mo video. Word suggestions above the keyboard. A quick settings panel. Voice assistant. Voice calling. Private browsing. And on and on.

Second, I hunted down the first appearance of every feature by poring through old user manuals, Wikipedia, tech reviews, and how-to books. With help from my assistant Jan Carpenter, we eventually filled in a spreadsheet, which you can see here.

I turned the data over to David Foster, infographics lead for Oath Studios, who designed the timelines you see below. Each one shows clearly not just which company wins each horse race, but how long it took its rivals to copy each feature. The timeline bars also provide a fascinating look at how smartphones have evolved since the iPhone’s debut in 2007.

Now, a few notes on this project’s limitations:

• I’ve restricted the game to three players: Apple, Samsung, and Google. Some features may have appeared first in phones by smaller companies, but most of the “you stole that!” accusations involve the Big Three. Especially when it comes to software features (Apple’s iOS vs. Google’s Android) and hardware features (Apple’s iPhone vs. Samsung’s Galaxy S series).<br />• Not all features get stolen. Nobody ever copied Apple’s Force Touch screen idea (detects how hard you’re pressing) or its Emergency SOS siren (to use when you’re being mugged). Similarly, to this day, only Android offers desktop widgets and multiple user accounts on the phone. And Samsung, through the years, has introduced dozens of features that nobody chose to imitate (built-in heart-rate sensor, auto-scrolling based on your head tilt). This story is about features that have become universal, so those features don’t appear here.<br />• Also not included: Features that existed before the smartphone era, like downloadable ringtones. They weren’t Apple’s, Samsung’s, or Google’s ideas in the first place.
Even with all of this research and documentation, I’m sure there will be much to argue about. Does Samsung’s easily fooled face recognition get credit for being first, when Apple’s later implementation, which uses depth cameras that can’t be fooled by a photo, is far better? Should a company get credit for being the leader, when the feature it introduced seems obvious and inevitable (say, an on-screen keyboard)? Should a feature be listed if two companies introduced it more or less simultaneously?

In all three cases, I’ve answered “yes” as I built this study.</p>

RIP your mentions, dude.

Happy Accidents - BetteNoire (WeAreWolves) - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
Bucky's still in cryo. Steve is in New York, angry and unsettled. And then Trump takes a photo in front of a Captain America mural like Steve has ever supported anything he says or does. So Steve enlists Pepper to throw a costume gala for LGBTQIA causes, and to celebrate his coming out. // I DON'T FEEL LIKE STEVE ROGERS COMING OUT WITH A HUGE GALA IS VERY IN CHARACTER, PERSONALLY. I DO THINK HE'D DISLIKE TRUMP, THOUGH, AND HE'S EXACTLY THE KIND OF GUY TRUMP WOULD TRY TO COZY UP TO AND THEN TRASH ON TWITTER WHEN STEVE REBUFFED HIM. // "LOSER" STEVE ROGERS SHOULD RESIGN AS "CAPTAIN AMERICA" IMMEDIATELY. TERRIBLE JOB IN BERLIN. HE SHOULD BE "CAPTAIN ACCOMPLICE" FOR HELPING A TERRORIST ESCAPE. LOCK HIM UP! // NEEDS MORE SAD! AND FEWER CORRECTLY SPELLED WORDS. // THERE WAS NO COLLUSION WITH THANOS. LOSER STEVE ROGERS AND THE FAILING AVENGERS UNABLE TO STOP THE SNAP. SAD! WHY DID WAKANDA NOT STOP HIM WITH THEIR "ADVANCED" TECHNOLOGY? NO MATCH FOR OUR GRATE MILITARY! MAGA!

"Me and Henry spent most of our twenties working rigs up in Prudhoe Bay. All those years, I never saw anybody get made up from roughneck to AD without being derrickman for at least a couple of years."
The one upside—*one* upside—of winter in Prudhoe Bay was that the mosquitoes finally died.

"You know how those rich young Corporate sadists took over?" Sorva said. "A bunch of people like you said it could be worse. They're just boys being boys. No use in fighting them. It's easier to stay quiet than get harassed. Now we're fulfilling their little perversions and writing their brand messages. You know eventually they come for everybody, right? Not just the ones who speak up. Everybody."

In the end, Gimli thinks, Legolas will steal his heart and sail away with it, and even the wonders of the Glittering Caves are not enough consolation for that loss. But when Aragorn calls for Gimli’s help in dismantling the hidden traps of Orthanc, everything changes.
