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.
Voted. Washed hands. Put pajamas back on. Back to work.
This week’s Finer Tech Newsletter should be ready by Sunday. Between going to C2E2 today and traveling this weekend for a family/friend thing, I need a little more time.
But you don’t need much time at all to subscribe for free!
Wow, a great day for the newsletter! Thanks everyone. 😊
YES! It took way too long for something like this to happen, and I hope it succeeds. This sounds like a much better solution than a million paywalls and logins. I’m signing up now.
Replaced my iPad Pro under AppleCare, did an iCloud restore on the new one at home. First time in a while I skipped the Apple Pay setup, and wow was that a mistake.
I’m disappointed at how aggressive and how often iOS bugs me to set up Apple Pay. It’s off putting. Ew.
The Apple TV app on Apple TV (yes this naming scheme is dumb) takes way too long to resume a film or tv show.
TIL Steam Powered Giraffe is a music thing and it’s amazing and weird and wonderful.
“How to survive remote work during the winter”
Get comfortable pajamas. Er, excuse me: “loungewear.”
I want an iPad Pro mini.
And no, my 11 Pro Max doesn’t count.
Last year I switched to Raindrop for my bookmarks. It’s quite flexible, supports multi-word tags, has a good iOS app, and has lots of little touches I like. 👍🏻👍🏻
There’s a subreddit called “what’s wrong with your dog” 😄 www.reddit.com/r/WhatsWr…
My Chicago Target has a vinyl section now. What is happening??
CTA discontinues loop-de-loop rail course in downtown - The Chicago Genius Herald
THANKS LIGHTFOOT 😄
I’m giving the Focus Course Digital Planner for iPad a try this year, and so far I really like it.
But uh. Today is a special day. 😊
(Shelter brings her by tonight, yes there will be photos!)
