I set a goal to post something to one of my blogs and/or a photo each day during Dec.
The only thing I want from Apple Watch Series 7 is a longer battery life.
I’m sure they’ll pack in more health stuff, great. Maybe a better screen or whatever. But I’ve grown to care less about that stuff while battery life has been stuck at “18 hours.”
My iPad autocorrected “memo” to “meme” this morning and I’m not sure if that’s a bad thing.
TIL I have a tintype photo of an ancestor taken in 1867
“Ecological breakdown isn’t caused by everyone equally. The richest 1% emit 100 times more than the poorest half of humanity. If we are going to survive the 21st century, we need to distribute income and wealth more fairly.”
Things are fucked.
Here, watch a great essay about the strange legacy of Dune (the film and also the story and who wrote it).
Movies with Mikey is just a great series in general. Watch them all.
I’m starting to get 11-inch iPad Pro-curious. I love my 12-inch Pro, but it can be cumbersome in some situations.
I wish Apple Stores offered test drives. Maybe an option to rent one for a couple days.
Wait, Micro.blog doesn’t seem to support GIFs. Say it ain’t so!
Have you ever thought about how there is nothing in the world or the universe that says today is Monday?
A long time ago, everyone just agreed “yeah, sure. Today is X.” And we’ve all just gone with it since.
Carrot Weather, always on top of current events.
Anyone else not able to scroll the website of the Coalition for App Fairness on iPad, perhaps a bit ironically?
Yes I have a content blocker installed (1Blocker). No I’m not disabling it.
Anyone have tips for getting back to reading books and making it a habit?
Crossing my fingers for an iPad mini with the Pro, super thin bezel design tomorrow.
Hey everyone. I hope you’re doing well. I’m not so well. But I’m trying.
Cancelling Amazon Prime. I no longer want to support such an exploitative parasite of a company.
It’s also lost a lot of edge in terms of free/fast shipping since tons of competitors either match or are close enough now.
Apparently Robert Irwin is just as goofy as his dad was. I think it’s neat.
I write this as someone who watches a lot of YouTube. Like, a lot.
Finally got another Finer Tech newsletter out this past weekend. I’ve been struggling to write for a while, and this lockdown only made it worse. I hate this.
This is your infrequent reminder that Scroll is a sort of Netflix for reading on the web and I really hope it takes off because this feels like a good solution to zillions of paywalls and logins. I like it. scroll.com
Apple Books finally getting some due praise. The complete redesign in iOS 12 is damn good (and where all my digital books are, Apple-purchased and otherwise).
Hey, remember when Zoom abused app permissions to install an always-on background web server on your computer for no good reason? And now it’s sending all your data to Facebook even if you don’t have an account.
Maybe we need an alternative vid conferencing app.
