Stop using "blockchain" as though it were plural. It isn't. It's not milk; it's not rice. It's a singular thing. You create a blockchain.

When you say things like "blockchain creates," you sound like President Trump when he says "cyber is."

Correct usage of the term is to say "blockchains create" or "a blockchain creates" or "the blockchain creates."

Comment No, not a second camera on the back (Score 1) 85

It was a big deal for many when Apple added a second camera to the back of the iPhone 7 Plus last year.

No. Idiot.

Apple did not add a second camera to the back of the iPhone 7 Plus. Apple added a second lens to the one camera on the back of the iPhone 7 Plus.

The iPhone 7 Plus has two cameras, not three. The camera on the front has one lens and the camera on the back has two lenses.

But Google CAN be pedantic. And you can be wrong.

Except that nothing I said above was wrong.

Correct. That doesn't contradict anything I said. The noun is backup and the verb is back up.

So please dismount from that overly high horse.

Nothing overly high about it.

If something catastrophic did happen to my home, my data would be the least of my problems.

That's rather naive. If something catastrophic happened to your home, then once you were all recovered from that (maybe a year or two), you're going to be in a world of hurt about your data. You'll care at some point. Best to maintain offsite backups as well as onsite backups.
