This is your chance to make it big. Just buy a ticket to Shenzhen, wait for the pandemic to end, fly there, find a garage shop willing to make your idea and LISTO, you're ready to make it big on the SmartFlipPhone market that hasn't been invented yet.
someone who has never used a qwerty smartphone can never appreciate the experience. every now and then i search for new models that have the keyboard, but there is nothing. except those 3 phones from Blackberry: Keyone, Key2 and Key2le, which are bulky and expensive.
nothing like the Q10, portable, good build. it doesn't even has to be a quality build, it can be some matte soft plastic like the BB 9720 or the Galaxy S5, it only needs a decent camera and video processing.
2GB and a A55 1.5/2.0GHz will do the job
it's all gone to hell. i think of how Samsung used to make their top models S2, S3, S4... chip looking, but tough. now all they do is models for... fashion designers, hair stylists and wealthy wine experts.
It seems like most of the Jira ads have to do with "improvements" that mean you spend less time with the software. One actually says something like "spend less time in Jira" another one says "ditch the tabs and update jira directly from the editor" - the latter seeming to be simply the correction of a stupid UI decision.
I've never used Jira before, and I don't even know what it does, but based on their own ads, I never want to.
JIRA was introduced at where I work some months ago and I was expecting the worst, but apart from some teething troubles it now seems to run smoothly and I have no issues with it.
There are more user friendly alternatives of course like Hygger for example, see: jira-alternatives[^]
In that day the Lord of hosts will become a beautiful crown
And a glorious diadem to the remnant of His people;
A spirit of justice for him who sits in judgment,
A strength to those who repel the onslaught at the gate.
And these also reel with wine and stagger from strong drink:
The priest and the prophet reel with strong drink,
They are confused by wine, they stagger from strong drink;
They reel while having visions,
They totter when rendering judgment.
For all the tables are full of filthy vomit, without a single clean place.

I've never seen JIRA used for Time Management well(*) - it is, however, a great way to track work items in units of time eg sprints, what you're working on, what's up next, that status of work items - dev, QA, Done etc.
As with a lot of things, it's a tool - if you work in a big development shop, it can be used well - I've seen it used poorly though, in commercial confidence I can't say too much on that, except that when you need to raise a JIRA to make a decision about raising a JIRA, well, maybe a phone call or email is better
(*) this may be the way the Time Management aspects were defined/set up
What frustrates me is how important it is to my coworkers to insist on using every single feature of there systems. "Jira has this neat feature for doing xxx, why are we not using it?" "Well, we have not need for it" is no acceptable answer. Let ut make up a need for it!
So we have introduced all the complexities of Jira. Not only Jira. To use git "our way", you have to know every single command and option. We introduced Docker for solving specific problems having nothing to do with clouds or distribution, yet there was a strong demand that we put a Kubernetes box around it.
If we could only use Jira, and other tools, in ways that helps to solve a problem, to save work, and for noting else, it would be great. But that seems not to be possible. Lots of my coworkers prefer to excel in tool handling rather in problem solving.
To paraphase AE: "Use the tool in as simple way as possible, but no simpler".
Lots of my coworkers prefer to excel in tool handling
And lots of mine prefer Excel over actual tools...
GOTOs are a bit like wire coat hangers: they tend to breed in the darkness, such that where there once were few, eventually there are many, and the program's architecture collapses beneath them. (Fran Poretto)
