New backpack post: Backpacks for kids. Hide your wallet, I’m crazy.
Found my first iOS 12 iPhone casualty: Zoho Expenses. Trying to open camera, crashes the app. FYI. (Still a great app)
Good time in San Jose.
iOS 12 on my 10.5 iPad Pro is impressively stable.
Some great deals on GORUCK gear right now (affiliate link). That woodland Bullet is sweet.
I’ll have a member’s post up a little later today, in case you were wondering.
Since I’m at WWDC this week, no better time to post my review of Allbirds.
Office clothes are basically terrible. But there’s better options.
Member post for this week: a redux on Standing Desks, and some thoughts on my favorite EDC/Backpack focused sites.
Also my post for everyone on picking a better travel bag. ‘It’s the season.
Because I’ve heard some people can’t pack for a week in a 20L bag, and want more options. New post on travel bag options.
Bluetooth, mechanical, and a good layout. Damn, hard not to buy.
I had a chance to try these boxer briefs, and though that’s not what I normally where. They are super comfortable.
Icro is a pretty nice Micro.blog app.
Suns out, time to clean some @GORUCK bags.
Oh crap, just got a Cherry MX Black board, and now I don’t know if I like these better than the clears or not. Shit!
Lots going on in the member post today, but I also am asking you for some feedback. Especially about portable keyboards.
I’m Sorry To Report Instagram Is Bad Now
From Monday, how I deal with social networks and such.
I wrote about designing better notifications, and the real winner is the blog art they came up with.
Cohasset Beach: Weekend at the beach. The dog is very leery of me.
Member only post this week is a more practical look at how I put my removal of social networks in place.
This struck a serious nerve for me.
@manton Wavelength doesn’t work with self-hosted sites?
Still looking to hire senior people for iOS, WPF .NET, React.js, and UX Design. Come apply.
How does Apple do such a good job with the ‘Chill Mix’ playlist thing, but fails at the other ones?
Today’s member post has a sale on a unique backpack I have.
From Friday: another watch review.
I’ve basically decided everyone needs this watch.
Ok I cannot stress how much I love this GMK Carbon SA keycard set on the Pok3r. So much so I am considering taking my keyboard with me this weekend to the beach. I mean, it’s so lovely and nice.
Any chance there’s a Tumblr for ‘Mark Zuckerberg testifies in front of congress gifs’? Or is my internet old age showing again?
My two favorites from today:

Best thing on the web today. (ht Julia)
If I were in charge of marketing for Ancestry.com I would change to one simple question: “Ever wonder if your parents, are really your parents?”
Sales would be booming.
A smattering of thoughts about various app related things, and an update to my iPhone home screen.
Pro Tip: for those applying to work for me, spell “MartianCraft” correctly. Kthxbye.
I cannot recommend any Bosch brand dishwashers. This thing has more bullshit errors than any other appliance I’ve ever owned. When it works, it’s great. It’s that I’ve taken it apart 4 times in a year of owning it. So far.
I should probably write a Medium post about the 40 minutes I was without my largest iPad Pro and forced to only use the smaller one. AMA
iPad started working again, that must have been a very dead battery.
In other iPad news, I posted an iPad Productivity Report today, all about stuff.
My 12.9” iPad Pro battery died over the weekend (didn’t use it), it has now been charging on the USB-C charger for 25+ minutes and still shows low battery. This is stressing me out now. WTF.
