Worldcoin and its World ID launched this week. Another crypto project that I wouldn’t have paid attention to except it is run by Sam Altman, the CEO of Chat GPT. One of the main differences with this one is you have to “verify yourself as human” by getting your retina scanned by an “orb.” Well,…… Continue reading Worldcoin – World ID
I finally pulled the trigger disconnecting Comcast and giving T-Mobile home internet a try. Comcast has been getting on my nerves for years with their overpriced service and the dance we must do by calling in to try and keep the price from rising too much year over year.
