Updated iTunes, still not sure what headaches enabling “iCloud Music Library” entails (got two Macs with different libraries and playlists).
The Watch made me want a Pebble. Apple Music’s implementation pushes me to try Spotify and Rdio again. I knew Apple was falling, but damn.
And, without it, Apple Music is much less useful.
No. Still no.
The UX is bad but the functional design is well thought out.
It’s fashionable to crap on Reddit these days and celebrate its demise, but that’s like congratulating yourself for how Usenet and IRC have become obsolete because you didn’t like a few of the newsgroups or channels available there. (Reddit is corporate-owned, but until the recent change in management it had very deliberately clung to the same freedom-of-speech and laissez-faire operative principles as those decentralized platforms, so the result was the same, good and bad.) If you curate just a little bit the list of subreddits included in your home page, Reddit is still the best place on the internet to have intelligent discussions — a site on which you can actually learn something in the comments section.

“Two-Factor Authentication in iOS 9 and OS X El Capitan”: Looks like they’re getting rid of the extremely problematic recovery keys and using phone numbers instead, which is much better. I never thought they’d actually fix that issue, never mind so quickly.
I’d love to see more information about the manual process to authorize people locked out of their account, but the description at least makes it seem like they’re taking the responsibility seriously.
I’m really glad I’ve had to switch to Pocket Casts. The iPhone app + polished web app is a great combo.
The way iOS 9 blurs the lines between pages and apps, there’d be no better time to resurrect webOS’s all-tabs-in-the-app-switcher paradigm.
RT @jimmydivvy: NASA: Decade long flight across the solar system. Arrives within 72 seconds of predicted. No errors.
Me: undefined is not a function
RT @neilcybart: The features found in the free tier of Apple Music will be enough for many people. That’s not necessarily a bad thing for Apple either.
Guess I’m gonna bite the “I hate the app” bullet and try it again.
Fuck the IoT. They can’t be trusted with IP addresses.
RT @danielpunkass: Limited time only: $AAPL stock is only $0.99/share. Trust me, Apple, the exposure is worth it. Market will appreciate true value over time.
RT @mdhughes: I want all my iThings to go DND when I take off my watch, and turn off DND when I put it on.
It’s amazing that online shopping can be successful considering the nightmarish clusterfuck that is home package delivery.
