• How did people get excited for things before the 1991 release of 2 Unlimited’s “Get Ready for This”?

  • There’ve been countless times I’ve thought “I should post a picture to Sunlit/Micro.blog”, then I open the app, tap on the photo icon, and remember there’s no direct camera feature.

    I haven’t found a way to train my brain otherwise. Maybe it’s just how my particular brain works.

  • I wish there was a ride-sharing service that’d pick me up at the same time every day and drop me off at work. Maybe a bunch of us could pitch in and get a big car that could hold say 50+ people all going in the same direction. I bet it wouldn’t cost much more than $1.50 a person.

  • When are we going to get the real Mueller Report?— @jeffmueller needs to write a comprehensive review of 2019 backpacks, bags, and pouches.

  • I recommend you listen to this album, Jade Bird, today.

  • Music.app feature request:

    When clearing the “Up Next” queue, add an option to save the remaining songs in a playlist.

  • I can get all of the digital magazines I’d read on Apple News+ for free from the library.

  • Today, I helped my eight-year-old read her first privacy policy.

    Me: “It says here if you sign up they can sell your information to people who want to send you junk mail.”

    Her: “Ugh. No one likes junk mail!”

  • I contend that the first 12 minutes of Star Trek (2009) is some of the best film-making I’ve ever seen.

  • Netflix arbitrarily breaks AirPlay support

    Netflix App for iOS No Longer Supports AirPlay Because of ‘Technical Limitations’:

    “We want to make sure our members have a great Netflix experience on any device they use. With AirPlay support rolling out to third-party devices, there isn’t a way for us to distinguish between devices (what is an Apple TV vs. what isn’t) or certify these experiences. Therefore, we have decided to discontinue Netflix AirPlay support to ensure our standard of quality for viewing is being met. Members can continue to access Netflix on the built-in app across Apple TV and other devices.”

    Another of the endless examples of remote corporations telling me what I can and can’t do with the software I run on the computers I own.

    Purism: The Future of Computing and Why You Should Care:

    Let me start by stating: I believe we can change the future of computing for the better. However, currently something is wrong with our digital world; something basic, something is rotten at the core. I want to talk to you about what that is, how it came to be, and why we must change it. And I want you to care… because:

    “A person who won’t care, has no advantage over one who doesn’t care.” ~ Mark Twain

    Everyday I get a little closer to dramatically changing the way I use computing devices and services…

  • I honestly struggle to tell the difference between American Girl doll accessories and garbage.

  • Open Apple News. See an article that’s Apple News+ only that I want to read. Switch to Safari. Do a DuckDuckGo search for article title. Read article.

  • I like my new Apple TV.

  • This “Wall of Awful” metaphor really resonated with me.

  • Tell me a thing that you like!
