I've been reading a bit about the Steam Deck.
Of course, I started thinking... What if someone created a small device with a Zen2 chip, and LPDDR5 RAM like the Steam Deck. But instead of built in storage, they gave you an M.2 slot? Unless Valve was subsidizing the cost of the Steam Deck, you would think a device like that could be made less expensively than the Steam Deck.
I could replace my desktop PC with something like that.
Dealing with the US coin shortage at work today made me think of a way the Fed will roll out the digital Dollar: Coins will be first to go.
POS software could be updated to offer an option of receiving coin or printing a voucher. The voucher could be scanned by their phone and the spare change deposited in a bank account/Venmo/Paypal/whatever.
The elderly will push against this, of course, but I have a feeling something like this would catch on fairly quickly.
Microblogish stuff is here for now. Long form home is on Hubzilla.
