Hewlett Packard, fix your goddamn terrible trackpad drivers. I am fed up of my work laptops spazzing out every few minutes.

Well, I'm very miffed. The iVRY PC driver for the PSVR2 released, but it turns out my RTX2070 doesn't have a Virtual Link port. How immensely annoying.

"If SUVs were a country, they would be the world’s fifth largest emitter of CO₂"

I'm so disgusted, I can't find the words... 🤬
______________________________

SUVs accounted for 48% of global car sales in 2023, reaching a new record and further strengthening the defining automobile trend of the early 21st century – the shift towards ever larger and heavier cars.

There are now more than 360 million SUVs on the roads worldwide, resulting in combustion-related CO2 emissions of one billion tonnes, an increase of around 100 million tonnes from the previous year.

Despite advances in fuel efficiency and electrification, the trend toward heavier and less efficient vehicles such as SUVs, which produce 20% more carbon emissions than an average medium-sized car, has largely nullified the improvements in energy consumption and emissions achieved elsewhere in the world’s passenger car fleet in recent decades.
