Was excited to find out how many accessories for my new Ikea pegboards were available on Thingiverse. Downloaded 52 files. I’m quite sure I’ll never look through them because that’s too many 😫
I wonder if apple and google realize that the main reason there’s such a huge pool of programmers to pull talent from right now is because we all grew up in an era where computers were very open and it was super easy to get started learning how they work
I’m trying to edit a photo by switching between Procreate on the iPad and Photoshop on the Mac (via iCloud, which I guess must be the most efficient) and it feels like I’m back in 19992bedited_final.
It only took me the whole day but I’ve finally ordered a printer that I’m inevitably gonna hate and curse when it gets here.
The hardware’s great — Pencil 2.0 is so much more convenient to use than the first generation. I blame software, but also ADHD. (There’s that nice perk where stuff completely disappears from your brain if it’s not in front of your eyes. So notes are more useful on my desk.)
When I bought my iPad Pro a year ago, I told myself this time I’d use the Pencil to take handwritten notes and draw diagrams and organize them digitally.
When Apple announced iOS 14’s new handwritten note support I told myself…
I finally caved and got back to my paper notepad.
Apparently there are people getting allergic reactions to some chemical in the silicone tips of Apple and Beats earbuds. Ask me why I googled this 😒
The sunk cost fallacy fallacy is when you put a lot of time into a project, find your motivation running out right before you get to the finish line, and tell yourself that because of the sunk cost fallacy the rational decision is to quit.
When I bought Shure SE425 earbuds in April I agonized over getting H1-powered Beats instead. I knew the Shures sounded fantastic, was afraid the Beats would be bad, and lockdown made even returns impractical.
If the $50 Flex are that good, I should’ve bought the Beats back then.
My iPhone has had random bouts of lag since I’ve updated to 14.1, even after multiple reboots. I missed a photo this morning because the camera repeatedly stalled, and have been having issues all day. It’s four years old and new models just came out, so… I guess that checks out.
I’m playing around with some old pictures I took (like “oh god the folder name says 2003” old) and it’s amazing how much easier the new tools make it to give portraits a bit of personality without making them look unnatural — just shift the new “Balance” slider to the left.
Damn, Lightroom’s new color grading tools are nice. Makes me wish I still did portraits. Or still had a proper camera, for that matter.
But then, taking portraits out on the street isn’t a thing anymore, so 🤷🏻♂️
If I had a big (huge) office I’d want to build a life-size Cray-1 replica in the middle, with my actual computer inside. As a conversation piece 😬
History in pics: Testing prototype Roomba’s in 1982. It would take two decades until they could be made small enough to clean under a couch.
My passion is UI design
