THE CORONA VIRUS WILL DEFINITELY KILL US ALL

People seemed to be keeping their cool for a bit, but once they cancelled the NBA everyone lost their shit.

In an indubitably futile effort to avoid the pandemic, iFixit tested out 4 ways of cleaning your touch devices that you touch all day. Their methodology seems fair. The winners were a UV sanitizer and clean wipes. I found a UV sanitizer on Amazon that is also a wireless charger for just $40. Now panic buy with my affiliate link.

Video Description:

All this corona virus talk, got us thinking, what are the most common ways people clean their smartphones and just how effective are they?
To figure it out, we recruited a few iFixit employees to see how dirty their phones were and put some common cleaning methods including a microfiber cloth, LCD/Screen Cleaner, Disinfectant Wipes, and a UV phone sanitizer to the test using SCIENCE!

It gets worse. The customary 14 day isolation (to prevent spreading the contagion) thought to adequate for run of the mill flu is not enough. It appears coronavirus types can still be shed by the recovered infected for 20 (median) days, but, some patients were still harboring coronaviruses for up to 37 days post recovery. Not good news.

I kinda hope it mutates and wipes out a good chunk of the population, like 30-40%. So many of our problems would instantly go away. Housing will be free, there will be no need to pollute for energy, parts of the world can be given back to nature etc.

As it stands, I’m sorta fine with this being the end of civilization as we know it. It’s been a really bad 40 years and I think this is a fitting end to this era.

Turn the page.

I’m currently driving for Uber/Lyft. Even my fortune cookies say “You’re FUCKED!”
Sorry, Tim. I have freaked out by germs for years and bought one of these last year. But since you have an Amazon affiliate link, we could all give you access to our wish lists and you could post the items on a special page. Then when we buy we could just follow the link on that special page, thereby giving you affiliate cred. --Ben

That is an interesting idea, but Amazon have a lot of weird rules to prevent abuse. I'm not sure if I'm even allowed to talk about it, because some programs (like Apple's old system) explicitly prohibit sharing the details of the affiliate program. So the short version is: Amazon don't fuck around.
