Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
I was listening to @atpfm today, when I paused the audio to talk to a person at the post office. Not more than 30 seconds later I pressed play to resume and instead of hearing the podcast, I heard a random song from my music library.
Perhaps the number 13 in iOS 13 really is that unlucky?
The Surface Pro 6 got a quad-core 8th gen. 15W CPU in October
2019 2018. It took Apple 9 months to add 15W Intel parts to 13-inch MacBook Pros.
It’s things like this, that piss me off most.
So whilee my Spaceebar starteed working again afteer cleeaning it with a vacuum cleeaner, my EE keey has starteed to typee two ee’s on eeach preess. I’m on my seecond keeyboard alreeady and it obviously won’t bee my last.
My dad passed away 4 years ago. I was going to write a few words about it yesterday but I had a really bad day and didn’t feel like it. Today’s not much better.
Four years since my mom’s passing. It still hasn’t gotten easier.
If you’re updating MacOS 10.13 High Sierra to 10.14 Mojave and you get booted into Recovery during the upgrade with a “the installer resources were not found” error message, make sure you don’t have a secondary SSD or HDD with the same name connected to your computer. My main drive is called “Macintosh SSD” and since I also had my clone connected, which has the exact same name, the installer could not figure out what to do.
No, I didn’t. It shutdown because of a kernel panic.
Funny thing is that I have had more kernal panics on my Macs than on my Hackintosh.
There’s something amazing about using a 15-inch tablet, weighing only 800 grams or so. It might not be as refined as an iPad but there are areas where it offers so much more. Kudos to Microsoft for the Surface Book.
I’m sitting with my 2016 MacBook Pro Escape on my lap, connected to its charger, really missing MagSafe. I have not yet tripped over the cord, but it has been close a few times now. All I can do is fondly remember how many times MagSafe saved my 2014 MacBook Pro.
I took my Series 0 Apple Watch off of the charger at 8:00 this morning. It is now almost 8 hours later and it still has 83% battery left. It’s three and a half years old or so.
What sort of witchcraft is this?!?
I forced a restart on my Series 0, because it appeared to be non-responsive. It spent a minute or three on the Apple logo, then asked me for my password, and is now displaying the Apple logo again.
I don’t mind that the Watch is slow — it still works fine for gathering Health data — but the update process is extremely frustrating.
It took another 5 minutes or so, but finally restarted.
My HomePod needed 5 minutes to update to iOS 11.3. My Series 0 Apple Watch is at over 5 hours now, and the end is nowhere in sight.
At this point, I’m tempted to try to force it to restart — it appears to be doing nothing.
You know what @instagram, why don’t you just add a chronological feed option? Screw algorithms — you have no clue what I want to see and in what order. The past few months have proven that many times over. So many, in fact, that I barely use your product anymore and I’m considering deleting my account.
I started deleting all of Facebook content today, using a script. After all my data is erased, which I have no clue how long it will take, I will proceed to delete my account.
Instagram and WhatsApp will be next. Sadly.
I had to restart the HomePod today, because it wouldn’t play any music. Talking to Siri, asking her to play something, resulted in an “OK”, followed by silence.
I unplugged it from power and after plugging it back in, it now appears to function correctly. Just like Windows 3.1, back when I was a bit younger.
My iCloud Music Library is f*cked. Apple has been on it since yesterday and so far I’ve been on the phone for about four hours. Should get another call soon. The problem is that changes don’t sync between my devices and my HomePod is unable to play the music I purchased in the iTunes Store.
My Mom passed away exactly three years ago. Hope she’s in a better place.
This is the first time in many years that I still consider my iPhone X — I’m now into over three months using it daily — still a novelty. It still excites me whenever I take it out of my pocket. I continuously stare at the gorgeous screen, not quite believing that this tech is possible today. And no, the notch doesn’t bother me. At all.
This happened twice so far (I owned every single iPhone model, apart from the 3G, 5C and SE) — with the first iPhone and then with the iPhone 4, when it went Retina.
The iPhone X is a milestone and I can’t help but wonder, when the next one comes along, will it be an iPhone? Or a smartphone at all?
I hate shaving. It’s just not a pleasant experience, despite me being extremely fussy about it — I use a MÜHLE R89 Grande with various accessories. It not only requires a shower beforehand, to properly moisten my skin and facial hair, but I just simply consider the next 15 minutes a complete waste of time. This is precisely why I simply love that Kelly Guimont and Don Melton have released their second episode of the Westworld Rewind podcast, in which they rewatch and dissect each character and event. Listening to them makes any chore bearable.
I discovered AWOLNATION — Run today.
I know I’m late to the game.
Don’t judge me.
