Fuck "Smart Lightbulbs"

Came across this little article today. GE have released some light bulbs that have the most asinine ‘reset’ process I’ve ever seen.

First off, needing to reset your light bulbs. Piss off.

Second, a little pinhole that you stick the end of a paperclip in wasn’t enough? Really?

Every time I see any sort of product that wires up your house with sensors with the Internet involved, I immediately jump into tin foil hat mode. Nuh-uh. Nope. Why a few cheapo LED bulbs isn’t sufficient when it comes to efficiency and saving a few coins I’ll never know.

Voice control?

Yous don’t find this shit horrifying?

“But Logan! Smart bulbs are useful for those who are not able-bodied!"

I’m sure plain old motion sensors would work better here, and certainly not the 6-cycle 3-minute on/off process one must follow to reset their god damn light bulbs.

Anyway. I just installed Blender for about the 4th time, and I’m going to try not uninstalling it before learning how to use it like I normally do. I have a really cool tattoo idea in mind, but to fully realise it I’m gonna have to 3D model it, take a snap, then faff around in Photoshop to bring it to life… just a minor task, of course…
