Twitter 推出打賞功能

Twitter 推出了 Tip Jar,也就是打賞功能:「Introducing Tip Jar」。

支援多種支付方式,包括 BandcampPatreon 這種創作者平台,另外也支援 Cash AppPayPalVenmo 這些一般性的金流平台。也因為實際上的金流不通過 Twitter 本身,所以就只有金流平台會收取的手續費:

The services* you can add today include Bandcamp, Cash App, Patreon, PayPal and Venmo. Twitter takes no cut.

看起來像是帶去其他 app 而已,所以不會有 iOSAndroid 的 30% 或是 15% 的問題。

今天釋出的 Firefox 86 推出了 Total Cookie Protection

Firefox 86 (新推出的 standard 版本) 推出了 Total Cookie Protection:「Firefox 86 Introduces Total Cookie Protection」。

每個站的 cookie 都有獨立的空間:

Our new feature, Total Cookie Protection, works by maintaining a separate “cookie jar” for each website you visit. Any time a website, or third-party content embedded in a website, deposits a cookie in your browser, that cookie is confined to the cookie jar assigned to that website, such that it is not allowed to be shared with any other website.

然後對於需要跨站類的應用另外處理,像是 3rd-party login:

In addition, Total Cookie Protection makes a limited exception for cross-site cookies when they are needed for non-tracking purposes, such as those used by popular third-party login providers. Only when Total Cookie Protection detects that you intend to use a provider, will it give that provider permission to use a cross-site cookie specifically for the site you’re currently visiting. Such momentary exceptions allow for strong privacy protection without affecting your browsing experience.

這樣的確把 cookie 的追蹤能力壓低很多,不過應該也會有不少站台掛掉...

Amazon DynamoDB 提供 Docker Image 讓開發者可以在本地端測試

AWS 推出了 Amazon DynamoDB 的相容 Docker Image,讓開發者可以在本地端測試 DynamoDB 的 API:「Use Amazon DynamoDB Local More Easily with the New Docker Image」,在 amazon/dynamodb-local 這邊可以拉到,裡面其實是包 Java:

DynamoDB local is now available to download as a self-contained Docker image or a .jar file that can run on Microsoft Windows, Linux, macOS, and other platforms that support Java.

這樣在 Continuous Integration (CI) 的過程裡面也可以拉起 service 測試...
