I have to imagine the reason is that something is happening with iPadOS 14, but why on earth did Apple not make the iPad trackpad gesture for slide over the same as Notification Center on the Mac (two finger swipe from the side of the trackpad)?
Ten minutes after being available to purchase, the new iPad Magic Keyboards have already slipped 10 days in delivery estimate. I’m sure it’s a combination of low stock and high popularity, but that’s one of the quickest date slips I can recall.
I’ve been thinking a lot about how tracking person-to-person proximity is probably going to be the best way to get things back to normal. It makes it no less terrifying.
Nice article on my neighborhood in the Post this afternoon:
One hour of playing Animal Crossing on the Switch leads to two hours of playing Animal Crossing in real life. I think that math works
How great would it be if this summer Apple announced that the only new feature is that all current features work?
No more “Hmmm…” from HomePod
AirPods always connect!
watchOS battery life is consistent across updates
macOS trackpads don’t randomly disconnect for 30 seconds
I’m sure most of you have read the Washington Post article on our political and institutional failures to respond to COVID-19. But if you haven’t, read it now. It’s long, but it provides a crystal clear walkthrough of how we got to where we are.
So it’s my first Lent as an Episcopalian, which means learning the whole ropes of this 40 days of mourning thing. As a Lent novice, I knew it mirrored the 40 days that Jesus was in the desert post-temptation, but that’s honestly about it.
So, as it goes, Jesus was tempted, but didn’t sin. Which obviously is supposed to mean that while we may be tempted, we shouldn’t sin either. Problem is that we’re going to, so it’s worthwhile to at least spend some time focusing on what’s next.
What was interesting about this week’s sermon was that it didn’t focus on the person who sinned, but rather those of us who are around the person who sins. In short, if we see someone in trouble, our first and only question should be: “how can we help?”
That’s such a great take and one we should be utilizing everywhere: the right thing to say is always “how can I help?”. And while other things you can say may have some value and sometimes be right, why not say the thing you know will always be right?
So, I just deleted all my tweets.
Not out of some moral stance on social media (though, I did delete Facebook for that reason), but because I’ve always thought of Twitter as ephemeral and having a record of everything I’ve said on the platform seems antithetical to that.
I’ve found myself tweeting less because I feel like if it’s going to be out there permanently, every tweet needs to be perfect.
Yeah, I know, I know. All Twitter needs is white dudes posting more and thinking less about what they’re saying. But the tweets are gone and here we are.
So, going forward I’m going to set a script to delete everything I post to Twitter at some set interval (not shorter than a week, probably not longer than two months).
For posts that I want to keep a record of, I’ll post to micro.blog (jordon.micro.blog or jordonwadlington.com) which will crosspost to Twitter. So if you’re looking for pictures I’ve posted or insightful/funny or life/world-changing thoughts I’ve had, it’ll probably be there.

A few days late, but finally getting to our annual Christmas viewing of Tangerine!!

This is such great news. A far cry from a few years ago when WMATA piloted an Apple Pay program and decided against it. In fairness, Express Transit mode is way better than having to authenticate with Apple Pay
