The latest Bullet Journal IOS companion app (version 2.0) improvements are impressive.

It now offers a great way of digitally backing up your paper notebooks.
Totally worth the $4.99 bucks! (I'm not getting anything out of this, I'm just a fan)

@codinghorror WebKit was never a favorite of mine due to slow development and Apple obviously having a bigger incentive pushing native apps. On the other hand, it has never been a better time to start or keep supporting the Mozilla foundation.

This is pure retro-computing gold. Re-watched the episode and the interview with Pete Perkins, the Apple Cloner perplexed me. This article tries to give some more history on him: https://www.apl2bits.net/2019/09/23/pete-perkins-honda-computers/ and also this : https://www.reddit.com/r/apple2/comments/dy618h/how_good_was_pete_perkins_apple_he_seems_kind_of/

Uninstalled the impossible-to-use IOS 13 Apple Mail app and replaced it with Microsoft's Outlook. I can read e-mails again.

This new Apple iOS mail app is a disaster. So many issues. More on that later.

Famously impressive Mac OSX "dark-mode" user-experience design

I am not sure what I am installing here. This dialogue just appeared after upgrading my iPhone and I think it's probably related to Apple's iTunes...

This Macbook Pro 15-inch keyboard is one of the worst keyboards I ever had to work with in over 15 years of working on computers. I keep missing the "⌘ + s", "⌘ + c" and "⌘ + v" (command) combinations and my work is literally full of stray "s", "c" and "v" characters.

AirPods Are a Tragedy - VICE

Any popular piece of tech that comes with irreplaceable batteries is bound to become a natural disaster in due time. We should be made aware of the environmental impact of new tech devices, much like we have energy efficieny a(+++) - F scale. Packaging and shops should indicate with a clear label, just how bad the device is for the environment. At least it would make the problem clearer to the bigger public.
