In a nutshell, there’s a setting in tvOS, under Accessibility, that enables Type To Siri.
Watch the video to see this in action. I’m curious how well this integrates with the iPhone/iPad/Mac keyboard, using the interface that automatically pops up when your device’s keyboard can be used to enter things like passwords.
From Mac Address, this video is titled, “I love the new iMac”, and it’ll make you want one. If you are even thinking about buying one, especially yellow, dig in.
Cool thread on magnet fishing to recover an iPhone and, as a bonus, a Nintendo Switch.
Something happened tonight. A friend of mine dropped his iPhone 12 Pro in the canal in Berlin. It disappeared in the mud. He waded through the 3ft deep water. No way to find it. But he found a Nintendo Switch instead.— Frederik Riedel 🐻❄️ (@frederikRiedel) May 29, 2021
There’s an emerging hobby called magnet fishing. Yes, it’s a real thing. Here’s a link to a beginner’s kit. There are tons of these.
Kind of want to give this a try, but I’m worried about hurting someone (the magnets can be very powerful) and also worried about erasing things like SD/credit cards and magnetic drives/devices.
Jeff Benjamin digs into the new iPad Pro, with discussion of various pain points that may or not be issues for you, but good to know before you buy.
This is a fascinating look back on the history of startup sounds on computers, including Macs.
Don’t miss that live background. That is one helluva beautiful setting.
Dave and I talk about my recent review of the iPad Pro and how I found using the device while on a 10-day road trip. We also talked about the new Siri remote, which both of us ordered and have been using with our Apple TV. Dave opens up his window and lets us hear the strange sounds coming from his backyard.
Of particular interest to me? Jump to about 1:33 and watch them pull apart the new Siri Remote. All you need are a few specialty screwdriver bits and you’re off to the races.
Most notable to me is how tight the tolerances are. Was hoping to shoehorn the guts of an AirTag in there, piggyback off the Siri Remote’s power, but no way.
I do appreciate how easy this was to take apart. Not sure if it’d be that easy to reassemble. Guess I’ll have to try that on my own, though I’ll wait til I have a spare Remote on hand.
