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??

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!)
Why does Micro Blog for iPad crop photos to a square?
A question about the Apple TV and how it syncs your Up Next list. Does it use the current user’s iCloud account or App Store account?
The Masone Bamboo Labyrinth I visited outside of Parma, Italy.
TIL Henry Cavill not only did all his own stunts in The Witcher, but always played himself on screen.
Even when it was just a hand coming out of a doorway to grab someone, that wasn’t a stand-in. It was Cavill.
Also, he got to design his own sword.
I am totally into these new kinds of interview series from the likes of Vanity Fair and GQ. Cool stuff.
“Next Star Wars film set to take place hundreds of years before the Skywalker saga”
So help me, if they find a way to shoehorn a ‘Skywalker’ into that film I’ll…. launch a Change.org petition? Maybe?
I watch a lot of YouTube now (yes, I pay for YouTube Premium). Many gaming channels, educational stuff like Vox and Wisecrack, some tech, some plain entertainment.
One benefit I just realized is few, if any, title sequences. Maybe a quick logo bumper. Videos usually just start.

Hot take? I really like the Apple TV Siri Remote. It has some drawbacks but, to me, the advantages are well worth it over traditional remotes.

Or am I missing something?
Facebook releases photo transfer tool to let users migrate to other services, starting with Google Photos in Ireland. More services and countries to follow.
Hooray, I finally got @ chartier on Flickr: www.flickr.com/photos/ch…
Played with a 16-inch MBP at an 🍎 Store. Keyboard is 🧑🏻🍳💋. Of course, the proof of the pudding is in the eating months down the road and whether the keys hold up.
I’m in northern Italy with the Bear folks.
Is pretty country. The prosciutto is divine.
I need to travel more. The US is killing my soul.
