Today was my last day at Smile even though I just recently joined them. The reason? PDFpen was acquired and the team is going along with it to its new home at Nitro: www.gonitro.com/blog/2021…
Finally received the new 12” iPad Pro I preordered. The new screen is amazing, but with normal use I cannot tell if the extra horsepower from the M1 chip makes a difference yet. Maybe I need to download one of those games Apple hypes at events with their graphics.
This last week: new job, birthday, WWDC begins, and now I am officially a homeowner! Crazy!
Has Apple… Sherlocked VPNs? Doubt it, but maybe I picked a good time to get out of building VPN apps for Apple platforms 😂
Of course I also ended up buying more Apple TV remotes for my family because everyone struggled with the questionable trackpad design.
After almost 5 years (that started at StackPath), today marks my last day at J2 where I got to work on some fantastic VPN brands with an even more fantastic team.
But tomorrow I start my new position at Smile Software and I am very excited about what the future brings.
Resident Evil Village was short, but I enjoyed it greatly. The atmosphere was excellent… I felt nostalgic about RE4 on the GameCube.
I got it for the PS5 just to check out what they did with the DualSense and it did not disappoint by providing a unique feeling for each weapon.
I didn’t enable the global opt-out for tracking in iOS to see which app would be first to request it. I was honestly surprised no other app triggered it before Hearthstone just now.
Apple Pay is now available in Mexico: www.apple.com/mx/apple-…
Now the real adventure is finding a place where you can actually pay with it, like it was in its early days in the US.
Today’s App Store metadata rejection for information needed: “Please provide the location of widgets.”
Uh… the same place as any other iOS widget?
It was weird sending instructions to Apple for accessing widgets in iOS 14. Basically used the same snippet I keep for support.
I am blown away. Widgets and extensions seem to be working for iOS apps running on M1 Macs. Here’s Pinstachio’s share extension working after being summoned from Safari.
My M1 Mac mini arrived today, so of course the first thing I did was download my favorite iOS apps to see how they fared in macOS. In the end it was 50/50 for me whether an app was good enough to remain installed or not.
I gave my parents a HomePod mini each for Christmas. My mother did not know what it was based on the box alone. Basically all it had were pictures and the word “mini” on it. “HomePod” was very small and not that easy to read, color-wise. I guess that’s an Apple package for ya.
I just got the email from Apple welcoming me to the App Store Small Business Program. Nothing special on it, but still welcome.
Pinstachio is now available in the App Store! apps.apple.com/us/app/pi…
If you use Pinboard for bookmarking, I hope you’ll give it a try.
It’s so satisfying getting a book you preordered on your iPad as 11 PM hits (CST), knowing you’ve got a couple of hours of reading time before sleep.
It’s even more satisfying when you’re on vacation, so you can read a bit more.
Cherry on top: the book is Ready Player Two.
It’s definitely a fingerprint magnet… but I love how the blue, shiny, metal band around this pacific blue iPhone Pro looks.
Small delay with UPS or not, the big blue phone is here ahead of the 18th originally quoted by Apple on checkout!
Opinion you’ve heard hundreds of times before: the PS5 is an absolute unit.
Welp. So the big blue phone I ordered definitely made it here for launch day, but won’t be delivered by UPS because of… who knows?… until next week.
Oh, good! The monolith I ordered is here even if a few days late.
Looks like my big blue phone is being prepared for shipment regardless of an estimated delivery date of the 18th…?
I’ve finally updated my main Mac to Big Sur. Shiny.
All new phones and their varying capacities and colors have a delivery date of the 18th here, so maybe it’s a quirk of my location.
