You know how moving files of any size within a single drive is instant? Because (depending on the file system) usually nothing is really moving, the OS just updates the address table for the file system.

I've tried moving a folder of 1000+ files to another folder using Dropbox web app, and it just couldn't do it! "Too many files" my ass!

It's not like the browser is doing the work! Or files have to be downloaded or uploaded. This is just a `mv` command invoked remotely. They suggest I do it on my own computer.

But what happens if I do that? Surely, Dropbox won't upload thousands of files afresh, it WILL move them remotely.

So... Yeah.

Another case of "When different parts of your system don’t talk to each other" (Synology DS Video App).

When different parts of your system don’t talk to each (thx @lynaghk for the picture)

I’m waiting impatiently when artificial intelligence finally arrives. So far Google Analytics informs me that when I publish a new article my number of visitors comes way up. What an insight! (actually, it generated 4 insights based on that event alone) And then Google calls it anomaly, because I do not publish regularly. Well. Good luck predicting next spike

Isn’t it crazy how many apps suddenly want you to create an account before using them? I first was surprised when nVidia graphics driver forced me to create an account. Today, even kettles require one. Come on, do you really want to report to Google how often I boil my tea? We live in a dystopian world

One of the worst menu ever designed by a man. It’s hierarchical. It’s three-level deep without any reason. Third level is completely unnecessary. It splits your data in buckets grouped by who else you want to give access to. It’s animated! Meaning everything moves, all the time, and nothing stays in place so you can’t reliably click on anything.

Movies by Movies, Music Genres by Music Genres. Are you sure you need those attributions here, youtube? Also, is Comedy Movies really a Music genre?

For an era when any change in Settings, even on websites, could be applied immediately, Github sure does love its Save buttons.

New AppStore is out and it’s strangely inconsistent. Depending on how you get to the application page, you might have your Back button located on the left, in the middle or on the right of the screen. Add to that that no other macOS app puts any significant window control to the right and you’ll get yourself an endless stream of confusion. Apple, you should’ve known better

Being looking for my favourite channel on YouTube. The one I've been watching more than others. Where is it I wonder? Of cause, it's under the "Show 2 more" button. Thank you!

Is there any sense in how this list is organized? The channels that haven't been updated for months hang on the top whereas the most seen ones are hidden. Why?

One more thing: "Show N more" shows N-1 channels actually because "Browse channels" is not a subscription.

Here is how they managed to steal **exactly** the thing I need.
