Personal Finance Software

I have been using KMyMoney for almost 10 years. It never occurred to me until recently that there might be something new, something better. Is there? What could they offer that KMyMoney does not? I've always considered KMyMoney to be pretty good, let's see what these solutions can do.

Nobody is Perfect

All the events in the news last year has revived thinking on punishment, justice and forgiveness. Especially those who have produced major works for humankind.

There are a lot of factors and there is a lot of injustice. It can be easy to say that there is so much injustice we should just punish all these abusers and criminals with no possibility of forgiveness or reentry into society.

But is that appropriate? Is every bad person a monster that should be locked away, deprived of a way to make a living and opportunity for social connection?

Is The Path To General AI Clear?

A lot of progress has been made in AI lately. Any application that could benefit from automation or benefits from increasing the amount of data you can process has had some kind of AI attached to it. Because automation requires intelligence to work discussion about robots involves AI as well. Automotive, finance, internet searches, music channels, advertising and product suggestions, news sites, lots of business apps that require decision making, etc.

Budget Breakdown

Basic structure to breaking down your budget. I tried to make it as complete (and generic) as possible so it looks expansive and large but I think people at all income levels should follow this strategy:

The one main drawback is that fixed, variable and disposable income go into the same account which is not very ideal at all. Everything else is well derisked and protected but not the fixed expenses. I will have to revisit this at some point.

Does Population Dictate GDP per Capita?

Introduction
I have been learning how to use Google Sheets analytical tools (including the Statistics and Merge Sheets plugin) and while practicing I thought it would be the perfect time to answer a question I have been wanting to know: does population dictate GDP per capita?

The steps were as follows:

Autonomous Vehicle Safety

How will we know autonomous vehicles are trustworthy and safe? How does the government approve a vehicle for a particular category? Is there independent review? Can it be broken down and easily understandable so regular people can compare vehicles side by side? Until that happens all we can do is wait and see. Eventually we will have statistics on vehicle collisions, injuries/fatalities, etc and which autonomous cares are best.

Pace of Technology

I remember growing up and in my home my family would frequently encounter the difficulties or annoyances of life and remark, "if only someone would invent a thing to". Sometimes we wished for straight up science fiction but most of the time we wished for things that, with some effort, could be made to happen.

Most people would say that the 80s and 90s were marked with the rapid introduction of computer technology. But I'd argue that it was also marked with total stagnation in just about every single already mature industry, particularly for end users.

Ultimate Wireless Headphones

I live in an urban environment and as such I am often walking, into and out of cars, buildings, etc and so I frequently listen to music on my headphones. I also travel work my work and some of those flights can be very long. As such I want to have noise cancellation to my headphones. I also want to increase the usability of my current headphones. The cord can be annoying but I also can't take calls on them or control music playback. I want all of this without compromising the fidelity of the playback. I want my cake and eat it too... but what does that look like?
