Signed up for Nextdoor when we moved. Here’s my review of it: what a hot mess.
I’m at UT Austin tomorrow for the career fair. I am unsure if this is my company saying I should find a new career, or if I should be helping students find one. So uh, I look forward to it.
Best thing of this week. Go get it.
OMG stormtrooper GR1 arrived.
Been a heck of a day, right? I mean these guys literally boxed my entire house in under 8 hours. I can’t even fathom how long it would have taken me to do the same.
In case you are ever moving and need to cancel Comcast service. Budget 32 minutes on live chat with them. You’ll need to enable pop up windows for that to work too. 🤦♂️
ICYMI while you were sleeping yesterday: members journal was published with lots of backpack talk.
Drop (formerly Massdrop) has the fantastic Orient Bambino back for sale. $139. Love this watch.
The GORUCK Shemagh is back in stock, big fan of it.
OG GR1, these straps are like perfection after 8+ years of wear.
I like the new WordPress editor, except the fact that it could not be a worse experience on an iPad, for an iPad user. Like, did they even test this? Is it 2011 again?
Published on Sunday, a quick guide to switching to iPad Pro full time (with special app listing for members). Yesterday, my Member journal where I use the word: ‘stellar’.
Luminary has now given podcasters something to talk about for another year, great. Fantastic.
These shirts are really solid and on sale right now. No one will know it’s super stretchy and has some DWR.
These are the best men’s dress shirts to buy if you work in an office and wash your shirts after each wear.
Today: my blog is my newsletter.
In case you missed it Monday, my member only post about News+ and more.
I’m a huge Apple News fan and users subscribed to Apple News+ instantly. I’m far from impressed, mostly because they made no changes to the News app to accommodate a different type of content. I can’t even favorite a publication and hide others. Stupid. I’ll hang in but they need to do a lot of work to keep my money.
I had to call and talk to two people to cancel my Seattle Times subscription today. That’s absurd. And then they didn’t want to let me do it without a reason. And they wonder why people don’t subscribe to more of their shit?
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.
