Is is ok to post AI images on the board? - That shit is too low effort for even us. We're not saying you can't ever get some AI help around the edges, but if your work is just typing something into an AI gen and posting it, then no thank you.

NEWSLETTER SPONSORSHIP - Every-so-often we manage to get a newsletter sponsor and it surprises us to be honest - anyway, this week it's a web browser run by people who used to be part of Opera and they want to say to you, "Fancy a browser for power users, run by Nordics, not Big Tech? With built-in ad blocking, and a built-in mail client so you can read all your b3ta back issues offline? OF COURSE YOU FLIPPING DO! Try Vivaldi" Should this be your thing then check it out.

Ninetyfication
Apparently Gen Z are nostalgic for a time they never lived in, the 1990s. Fire up the retro-encabulator and make everything more 90s (or just Photoshop any old 90s guff). Suggested by ESC CTRL.

FESSHOLE: THE PODCAST (PILOT EPISODE) - right the newsletter made by the original B3ta newsletter team (when it was good) of Rob & Dave is here. If you hate it you're probably right but that's not going to stop us from making at least ten episodes and making sure you at least know it's happening, before wandering off and going "I preferred b3ta when it was all swearing keyboards and flash videos." Well Steve Jobs killed flash ok? The dead fucker.

FESSHOLE PODCAST: TRAILER TWO - ok done a serious sensible trailer that explains what the show is, instead of the purely pissing around last one, and it contains some short clips so you can see we're actually doing this and haven't just made it up to try and chart in the UK podcast charts with a podcast that doesn't exist (like we did with the first trailer, straight in at no 46 like a Kagagoogoo single after the bloke with bog brush hair left)
