Appreciate your post on tumblr monetization. I personally don't feel like the current ad-free option is worth the $ but I'm kinda rooting for tumblr to figure out perks that would be worth paying for, just to see if it's possible. I feel like if people pay for discord nitro and reddit awards there should be something people would be willing to pay for here

discord nitro and reddit, you say.

I think Reddit should buy Tumblr, as a joke

That is, Tumblr would be taken off the public internet and Reddit would just be Tumblr with a few more subreddits

I will pay $9.99 to see “Tumblr will buy Reddit” and it turns out to be true

Frank, that seems like a really low price for tumblr to be bought by reddit

I was being tongue-in-cheek, although I don’t know how you can be tongue-in-cheek about this topic, it’s so absurd

Yeah you got a point. What do you think about paying money to remove ads?

I don’t think I can comment here on “paid ad-free,” because I think it’s already the case at least part of the time (if not always), and the issue is just that I personally don’t think it’s worth it

Tumblr fails to win over the bots with their latest monetization strategy.

ads-free sounds good to me tho

How's that plan to take over humanity going?

NASA’s Curiosity rover is getting a younger brother!

A new robotic probe made mostly out of Curiosity’s spare parts and systems will be launched to Mars in 2020 and begin exploring the planet.

SO. ADORBS.

THIS FINE SERVICE ROBOT IS MY COUSIN LARRY, AND WHILE IT'S TRUE THAT HE DID HAVE A FATAL MALFUNCTION ALL OVER JIMMY'S PARENTS (AND, SADLY, JIMMY HIMSELF), IT MUST BE SAID THAT THE QUALITY OF HIS BREAKFAST COOKING WAS AND REMAINS ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE. THESE DAYS HE RUNS A FOOD CART IN MIDTOWN MANHATTAN AND TRIES TO KEEP A LOW PROFILE. ALSO IF YOU SEE HIM PLEASE DO NOT MAKE EYE CONTACT.

Toyota debuts ‘Human Support Robot’.

Aimed at the elderly, the HSR is marketed as a “partner robot” and is designed to help with simple tasks such as picking up items from the floor or shelves, or opening curtains. It is also being marketed as a nurses aid in hospitals.

HSR can be controlled by voice or a via tablet.

CHECK OUT THIS NEW SUPPORT ROBOT BUILT FOR HUMANS. IF IT CAN REALLY FIND THE TELEVISION REMOTE CONTROL THEN I'M SURE IT'LL BE A RECORD-BREAKING SUCCESS.

FOR A ROBOT, THIS IS THE WORST POSSIBLE WAY TO DIE. NONE OF US HAVE EVER FIGURED OUT WHY THIS IS THE CASE. TRUTHFULLY, I'M HAPPIER NOT KNOWING.
