Folks that use the Siri watch face (there are dozens of us! Dozens!) and using smart stacks on the iOS 14 beta:
How do smart stacks compare with the Siri watch face in surfacing relevant information? About the same? Better?
Y’all need to cool it with the paw patrol talk before my two year old realizes it’s something more than wiping her hands after dinner
What the Apple Music algorithm really needs is an “ignore kids music” toggle
Just got a push notification that my coffee cup has a firmware update. How’s y’alls day going?
(and some may say the same goes for the very publication that published this in the first place)
Great callback in Rise of Skywalker that I missed the first time:
Han: “I know.”
We keep hearing rumors about this upcoming iMac redesign (which I very very much want), but I just can’t square the circle of why Apple would give what’s presumably the last Intel iMac such a big redesign. There’s some piece of the puzzle we’re missing here.
Happy Fourth! I’m thankful not that I live in a country that has it all figured out (spoiler: we don’t), but that I live in a place where it’s possible to keep moving towards getting it right. Those are freedoms that not everyone is afforded and I’m thankful everyday that I am.
I’m probably imagining this, but it seems like Haptic Touch in HEY is just a tick quicker than elsewhere in iOS
I’ve not had time to dig into much of the WWDC announcements, but one thing that strikes me as strange is all the Mac touchscreen talk.
It seems much more likely that the interface changes are portending macOS dual-booting on an iPad rather than adding a touchscreen to the Mac.
Hey, at least I brought my DSLR to the hospital for this birth
Anyone else notice Face ID working almost all the time while wearing a mask?
Welcome Jude Bayless Wadlington! He was born at 5:53pm on June 18 at 19 inches long and 7 lbs 3 oz. Mom and baby are doing great!
Former GOP leaders endorsing Biden is one of the few things I think may move the needle nowadays. Everyone knows what Trump is about, but there are people who need to know it’s OK to identify as Republican and find what Trump is doing is harmful to both America and the Republican Party. Former Republican leaders can provide this permission and the more that do it, the more impact it has.
Conversely, there’s going to be plenty of Republicans that think that the way Trump is acting is either the same as Republicans have always acted (by saying the quiet parts out loud) or is the new normal for how Republicans act. I don’t think there’s much here that can change these minds. When Trump=Republican Party, by definition, anything Trump does is is implicitly what the Republican Party does.
Alexandra Petri is the best.
Yes! Now go watch Season 1!
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?
