Trust google at your peril

It really is that simple: No one trusts Google. It has exhibited such poor understanding of what people want, need and will pay for that at this point, people are wary of investing in even its more popular products.

Source: Stadia died because no one trusts Google | TechCrunch

The wake-up call was when google killed google reader, but it was ignored by a lot of people cos it was a free service.

Then there was G Suite (Legacy Free). They got a lot of people to rely on google services and then proceeded to straight up betray them. People still didn’t care cos it was also “free service”.

But now with Stadia people will care cos the cost of this cancellation won’t be paid by google— they already wrote off the money. The cost will be borne by developers who trusted google with their games.

I’m somewhat safe as I do pay for some google services but I am looking for alternatives now. Microsoft is not a particularly viable option.

The best/funniest way they could respond to the backlash is to just replace crisp rat’s voice lines entirely with Charles Martinet making his standard Mario gibberish noises and change nothing else.

Just play it completely straight, leave all the other dialogue exactly as-is

Peach: And so, brave heroes from beyond, I implore you to save our kingdom. You are the only ones who can.

Luigi: What? No… no, that’s crazy, we’re not heroes, we’re plumbers! Tell her, Mario!

Mario: HEEPITTYBIPPITYBOPPITYBUNO

Luigi: You.. You don’t really mean that, do you? You can’t, not after everything that’s happened!

Mario: WAHOO MAMMA MIA

*Mario straightens his hat and grits his teeth as the camera zooms in on his face*

Mario:

Mario: YIPPEE

I promise as soon as the Mario movie comes out in a format where I can load the video into my editor, I will re-edit it so all of Chris Pratt’s lines are replaced with Mario 64 noises.

This was fun, today. But the occasions I’ll be able to do this will be precious few.

Using tumblr is like living in a low class apartment building. You just get used to the landlord not fixing things, and then someone new moves in and you’re helpfully like “oh yeah don’t drink the tap water, it’s got stuff in it that makes you sick” and then your neighbor you’ve had forever goes “oh they took the stuff out actually” and you’re like “what? when was this?”

“like two years ago”

“you mean i could’ve been drinking the tap water all this time?”

“yeah. they gave us individual mailboxes too finally, you don’t have to dig through the communal bin anymore”

“are you for real right now?? i just redirected my mail, i didnt know”

and the new tennant is like “why did you guys even live here if it was so bad”

“we like it.”

“I kinda miss the communal mail bin tho”

“the perpetually naked guy got evicted though”

“i know, so sad. he was really gross”

“i mean, his cousin streaks through the commons sometimes and knocks on all the doors”

“oh yeah, hate that guy”

New Person: I just saw this weird guy in the lobby in a really creepy anthropomorphic Pikachu costume??????

Old Resident: yeah we have no idea where that guy came from. We’ve left messages with maintenance ‘bout ‘im but-

Other Old Resident: just don’t make eye contact and you should be fine.

“what are these strange markings in the paint?”

“Oh! Thats from the crab infestation!”

“The crab infestation?! Wow, glad they got that under control before I moved in.”

“Oh, no no, it was an intentional infestation.”

“Uh….”

“Yeah, we’re hoping they bring the crabs back next year. A lot of us made friends with those crabs.”

No, I’m not joking, he doesnt just look like him, I swear to God neil gaiman lives across the hall.
