Ahhh, at last. Time to kick back, relax, and read reviews of an expensive thing I already bought that’s coming tomorrow.
How are folks organizing their favorite places/stores/restaurants/etc. on iOS? I was using third-party apps, but I switched to Maps favorites in their early days, and they were once blown away completely, so I bailed on that. Now I use Notes, but I don’t like it. Other ideas?
I smell a switch back to a third-party podcast app in my near future.
I am so getting the gold phone.
News Explorer has thoroughly convinced me that RSS reader sync can — maybe should — be done client-side using storage you're already paying for, but everybody's building clients for dedicated, costly RSS services.
Time for our third annual post-Burning Man tradition of… Rosh Hashanah in Modesto. Our life is strange.
It’s pathetic that the only enjoyable way for me to actually own commercially sold e-books is to buy them on Amazon, read them on Kindle, and meanwhile crack the DRM, convert them to EPUB, and throw that version in iBooks, but there you go.
“Hey,” she said as she biked past. “Can I give this to you?”
I managed to fall asleep fine, but I woke up around 3:30 with my alarm set for 5:30 and couldn’t get back to sleep. So it goes on departure day.
I ship out for Burning Man on Monday. It’s really happening again. My seniors might choke at this way of putting it, but it’s the institution to which I’ve belonged for the second-longest in my life, behind my K–12 school. And it feels like it’s been a long time.
The more I do it, the cooler I find microcasting on a technical level. The format (I arbitrarily chose) of writing 300 words, recording it, and posting both together makes for accessible, multimedia text on the web, and a podcast app is just as good as a browser for it.
Apparently the latest iPhone X ads were targeted at people younger than me and terrify people older than me, but I think they’re some of the best video ads I’ve ever seen. (Probably because they were made by people the same age as me.)
