I put a lot of work into today’s post. It’s the most comprehensive bag selection guide I have written. It uses all my nearly useless bag knowledge. Enjoy.
Oh look another Massdrop link from me. This time for one of my all time favorite flashlights the Pineapple.
Massdrop is selling the Gent Select again. Probably the best knife $120 can buy you. Hell it’s one of the best pocket knives out there regardless of price.
Need a new watch? This Seiko is currently $79. Put it on a brown leather strap, and it’ll look sharp. Hell of a deal for an automatic watch.
I haven’t been good about checking micro.blog, I’m back at it though.
A clarify buttons sounds like a better idea to me than an edit button, but y’all go ahead and keep debating something that will likely never happen.
Is Reeder app abandoned or what’s the deal? Anyone know?
That reminds me, I have failed the past two weeks for snack picks for the week. Sorry about that, I’ll resume them next week.
Holy oh my what the https://www.highsnobiety.com/p/kfc-cheetos-sandwich/
iPad: Face ID > Touch ID
iPhone: Touch ID > Face ID
I have an odd issue with internet connectivity and my (2018) iPad Pro. Here’s what happens:
- Plug in Apple’s USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter, and plug in a USB mechanical keyboard (tested with three different ones, same behavior).
- At some point while connected to WiFi still, the internet stops working.
The only fix is to unplug the adapter and things go back to working within a few seconds. Even toggling WiFi does nothing. Anyone else have this issue?
I forgot my AirPods and Apple Pencil for this trip. At that point you just start drinking. Right?
Great post about toxic work places. https://www.inc.com/marcel-schwantes/how-toxic-is-your-workplace-right-now-pretty-toxic-if-you-see-these-6-things-often.html
A brand just told me I’m a nanoinfluencer. So if you thought you were having a good day, check and mate.
Made some type changes on brooksreview.net to remove the Typography.com type account from it. That should free the site from the last bit of third party tracking, as far as I know. Still adjusting the design for the new typefaces.
Holy shit. Been a while since I’ve seen this.
I have a couple iPad Pros to sell. I’ll be making a full post later this week but if you want to snag one before then here you go:
- 10.5” 256gb WiFi with Smart Keyboard Cover $360 shipped. No box.
- 9.7” 128GB Cellular with Smart Keyboard Cover $250 shipped. Have box.
Is there a difference between those who endeavor to increase user “engagement” on social networks or digital devices, and those who work(ed) to make cigarettes more addictive?
This looks sweet, assuming you can program those three side keys for iOS specific things like home…
Interesting, the KR1 is back in stock. Easily the best kids backpack. Except, holy $195 Batman.
When your numerical rating doesn’t line up with the first sentence of your conclusion. This is why numerical ratings are pointless and misleading.
Ah fuck. I might have finally lost my AirPods.
It’s stuff like this that makes me love CARROT Weather.
On May 12th, 2011 I wrote about why Microsoft needed to fire Ballmer. It’s still the most read post on my site. Also weird that MS is now so valuable. That I think is because they have a kickstand on their tablet.
Whoa, waxed canvas GR1. Hot.
Glad to see Gemmell and Viticci realize iPad + mechanical keyboards are the way to go. They have some catching up to do, I mean are they even using custom braided cables yet‽
@manton any idea why my posts are showing up at a way different time than when they should be (earlier than they should be)
Had Taco Bell’s rolled chicken tacos (aka Taquitos) tonight. Of course with nacho cheese. The cheese was good the tacos were a little bland. Meh.
It’s already December. So don’t forget about my most excellent gift guide.
It’s 2018 almost 2019. If you’re writing about tech and you even think about being annoyed by a lack of a headphone jack. You should reconsider writing about tech.
Today’s your last chance until probably July to get killer deals on GORUCK gear. Hands down, the GR1 is the best bag money can buy.
Big fan of Tom Bihn’s new wallets, they let me check them out a little early.
You all know about Japan’s obsession with Kit Kats right? I need some of these flavors.
The Verge really wants you to think they aren’t in it for the clicks.
New Nebo version looks interesting. Will have to test it out for sure.
In some personal news, yesterday I was replaced as CEO of Martian Craft and let go. I’ll keep you all posted on what’s next, when I figure that out. 😂
As if we didn’t already have enough to worry about. Now there’s giant terminate mounds visible from space .
Thank you to everyone who told me where the damned em-dash is on the software keyboard.
Micro.blog’s integrations with new services is breaking it for me. And shows the vulnerability of not having platform wide unique usernames. I’m getting replies unlinked to anything I said and which frankly I don’t think are directed at me. Dumb. Frustrating.
My new hobby. Searching Apple Music for shared playlists titled “100 greatest songs”
Oh, one more thing, I don’t get people making the argument that they bought this year to last them for a while when their track record has been upgrading yearly. ¯_(ツ)_/¯
I don’t own a Mac, only use iPad Pros. Barely use my iPhone. I have a first gen 12.9” 128GB Cell iPad Pro. It’s more than enough, and actually I could have skipped the cell on it.
So keep that in mind for your device envy, I certainly don’t need a new one.
On another note. I’m very excited about the weather today. High of 42 degrees, my kind of weather.
