I discovered the J! Archive many years ago when I was prepping to try and be on the show (never actually made it). The website is a throwback to the “old days” of Web 1.0 and is an incredible time sink you should not even look at unless you’ve got several hours to kill.
The situation in Australia is bad enough without people passing along incorrect information. Most of the “fire maps” you’ve seen on social media in the past few days are, at the very least, misleading.
The trailers for this show have me caught between thinking it will be great or epically stupid. We’ll find out starting February 7th.
I don’t suffer from this confusion (I “breathe” with the app when it’s convenient but give it no further thought) but this is a good primer into what’s going on behind the scenes.
I love these “earth views”.
I find it interesting the iPhone 11 Pro doesn’t make this list. Looks like consumers are being budget conscious or going big, with no room in the middle for the “simple” Pro.
A little light viewing for your Monday. Considering most of these crashes occurred at upwards of 75-100 mph, it’s amazing that all the riders were OK.
As usual, I find the behind the scenes video even more interesting.
What a great Saturday morning read. I bet many people didn’t know Superman couldn’t fly in the original comic books.
I have friends and family in Australia, specifically in New South Wales who are affected by these devastating fires.
Apple still has an opportunity to be a player in the home automation market but “slow and steady” (or “dragging their feet,” depending on your POV) is going to make that a lot more difficult. Luckily, Amazon and Google have the usual privacy and data security issues that slow adoption but Apple needs to move a lot quicker. I had many people asking me about various home automation solutions over the holidays and it was hard to wholeheartedly recommend anything HomeKit-based.
I don’t usually post about the vagaries of Apple’s ups and downs in the stock market but the $300/share threshold is a big deal, especially for those of us who remember when the stock was at $7/share.
Little to no sympathy for developers, many of whom are likely abusing Location Services. As for consumer complaints, security and privacy is a PITA but better to have too much than not enough.
I never owned one or even much liked them but there’s no denying it was an incredible vehicle that made a difference to millions of people.
Apple had its ups and downs but, from a stock market and share price POV, it was a spectacular year.
If Iovine is worried, Apple is worried.
I don’t know anything about drumming so I have no idea if this is a difficult piece to play or not but I do love this song and seeing a “grandmother” rip it up is fun to watch.
“I’m 6 and me mudder won’t let me go to de pub!” She does make a compelling argument.
As we end this decade, here’s an interesting look back at the scariness and hype that was Y2K.
This story is a year old but I still get questions from my American friends about Boxing Day so I thought I’d pass this along. Happy Holidays!
Here’s hoping you all have a very merry Christmas and a happy holiday season. If you’re not feeling it this year, that’s OK. Lost of others are in the same boat. Check out this Twitter thread for some holiday cheer and #JoinIn yourself.
Some amazing images here. And I echo the writer’s two main frustrations – not being able to turn on Night Mode when I want to and the incredibly annoying “little green ghost spots” when shooting points of light at an angle.
I find these kinds of stories much more interesting than what some YouTuber thinks of the Mac Pro.
Various versions of the iPhone is my choice for “personal gadget of the decade.” What’s yours?
I hope it happens sooner rather than later.
None of this tech is “waterproof” but a lot of it is surprisingly very water-resistant (yes – there is a difference). How important is water-resistance to you?
This is what happens when those who don’t understand technology make laws about technology.
This is a truly spectacular list. How many of these products did you buy or buy into?
Keep this in mind when “those people” start banging on about marketshare.
The detail in this is insane.
