Context: not so often (but still too often for me) I babysat my nephews and nieces. At first I didn’t mind but I was cornered into babysitting a baby (I prefaced it by saying I wasn’t comfortable because I will not change diapers and I have no clue about feeding and formulas). The logic was ‘family helps family’. The next time I straight up said: “If I wanted to be an unpaid and unthanked nanny I would’ve had kids of my own. Why should I have to deal with your responsibility? I don’t ask/tell you to occasionally help out with my taxes like I’m entitled to it.”
Never babysat again and don’t intend to.
Note: I love my nephews and nieces but can only handle them in small doses with their parents or another guardian to do the babysitting.
Edit: I’m extremely non confrontational so all the times I babysat I was given no notice and had to drop everything. True it was never longer than an hour but I found it rude that certain people had such little regard for my time.
Obviously a lot of users here are already happy Backbone One users so this post is mostly intended for those who may be considering getting this controller. It's less a review and more a breakdown on how I've been using it for the past two weeks.
First off, I have to give credit to the build of this device. I had read and seen all the reviews and so was expecting a high build quality, but honestly it still exceeded my expectations. I'm very picky about controllers and have WAY too many for all my different systems. This controller feels as good as any first party controller for other systems. I've seen complaints about the triggers feeling mushy, but on the contrary, I actually really love how they feel. My one gripe is that the face buttons feel slightly too far apart. This becomes mainly a problem for games where you need to push multiple buttons at once (say in a fighting game for example). It's not a dealbreaker but definitely something to improve.
The software has been talked about a lot and in general is fantastic. However, it unfortunately doesn't currently let you delete games you've added, even after they are no longer on your system. There's also no way to group games or categorise them in any way so I hope these additions are brought to it soon.
Honestly, I didn't buy the Backbone One for iOS gaming at all. It's never been something I've cared about so I was really only trying it out to see what it was like. I have to say though, with this controller I will probably be giving mobile gaming a second look. While the console quality releases (GRiD, Dead Cells, Hyper Light Drifter among others) are few and far between, Apple Arcade suddenly becomes a viable service to me with enough interesting experiences that use the controller that I'm now excited to see what else I've been missing. Also, even though I'm far from a fan of the series and even further of a fan of F2P service games, I've sunk a more hours into CoD Mobile with this than I'm comfortable admitting. It just feels so good.
The real reason I bought the Backbone One and it came with some surprises - some good and some bad. First off, my primary goal was to stream my PC games to my phone to play like a Switch when my wife wanted to use the TV. I've done this in the past with my iPad and controller and the experience was very good. I have Moonlight, Steam Link and Rainway all set up and tried each of them with the Backbone. In general
You guys are choosing to be oblivious to the obvious elephant in the room.
I'll post my links yall can get emotional like you did yesterday I don't really care.
Once yall accept the fact that our government is in the pockets of hedgefunds then all that confusion that you feel would be easily answered. Or choose to be oblivious I really don't care either.
Just stupid yall can't see information without becoming overly sensitive and really political.
Anyway here's my links to my shit dd. Citadel paid the head of sec millions to "give a speech"
Also here's another link showing how hedgefund started to donate in 2018 to super pacs democrats benefited the most since then.
Also here's this article saying how biden got more than 4× the donations than the boogeyman in 2020
Or this article that states bidens biggest donors were hedgefunds.
There's waaay more out there a simple Google of it will show you.
But yeah let's stick our heads back up our asses and blame those damn hedgies for it all!
In sure many of yall will just get overly emotional without reading what I linked and that's OK. Just trying to help you out from ripping your hair out of your head.
Oh BTW vlad will not go to jail hedgefunds will not go to jail they're donors silly!
Am I the only one that’s tired of the way these kids talk to Laura?? I always let out a stressed sigh, cause I could never disrespect my black momma the way they disrespect Laura. (I respect the activism Olivia’s doing, but the way she snapped on Laura had me raising my brows.)
I started playing COD mobile after I got it, and I am wrecking people because of it. I only been playing a couple of days off and on but it just feels good on my pro max. It is like a lighter switch.
Need to try some other games today.
OCTA, as for now, is a community driven token, the more the Team gives attention to the project and to the community the more it will be praised and Hodled upon hence it will be more valuable. Knowing that, I would like to say my opinion and add my own analysis.
I've seen rather a different way of doing the right things here. The last video and transparency were extremely important knowing its a very young project in its early stages, you don't see other projects doing the same so this is a plus, we saw also two important milestones reached(Coingecko and Blockfolio), BUT keeping the momentum ongoing by giving more attention to the holders of the token will help a lot. Waiting for an AMA, the next video conference or update while sitting idle in between will result in having a psychological/emotional impact on new comers especially if whales are selling, it will push them away by selling too.
So lets keep things striving fellow Octanauts and share news, updates and remind people not to get scarred and to hold upon their shares as this is a project with a long term benefits. My message to the moderators to please not to react easy/indifferently on such opinions and "let them sell" or sort of but to reflect on the tech perspectives of the project and details that keep holders interested.
LETS BE ACTIVE!
Share OCTA on other subs and spread the word.
