Stevey's Google Platforms Rant

I was at Amazon for about six and a half years, and now I've been at Google for that long. One thing that struck me immediately about the two companies -- an impression that has been reinforced almost daily -- is that Amazon does everything wrong, and Google does everything right. Sure, it's a sweeping generalization, but a surprisingly accurate one. It's pretty crazy. There are probably a hundred or even two hundred different ways you can compare the two companies, and Google is superior in all but three of them, if I recall correctly. I actually did a spreadsheet at one point but Legal wouldn't let me show it to anyone, even though recruiting loved it.

I mean, just to give you a very brief taste: Amazon's recruiting process is fundamentally flawed by having teams hire for themselves, so their hiring bar is incredibly inconsistent across teams, despite various efforts they've made to level it out. And their operations are a mess; they don't real

useReducer vs useState vs useContext –


Use useState:

  1. if you manage JavaScript primitives as state
  2. if you have simple state transitions
  3. if you want to have business logic within your component
  4. if you have different properties that don’t change in any correlated manner and can be managed by multiple useState hooks
  5. if your state is co-located to your component
  6. if you’ve got a small application (but the lines are blurry here)

Enable diagnostic audio recordings
A diagnostic audio recording is used for analyzing audio problems. It consists of several files and contains the audio played out to the speaker (output) and captured from the microphone (input). The data is saved locally. Checking this box will enable recordings of all ongoing input and output audio streams (including non-WebRTC streams) and for future audio streams. When the box is unchecked or this page is closed, all ongoing recordings will be stopped and this recording functionality disabled. Recording audio from multiple tabs is supported as well as multiple recordings from the same tab.
When enabling, select a base filename to which the following suffixes will be added:
<base filename>.<render process ID>.aec_dump.<AEC dump recording ID>
<base filename>.input.<stream recording ID>.wav
