Well, actually...


my students regularly wreck me.

i think i told you all before about the time i was reading before class on a kindle, and a student gave me a disgusted look and asked "is that your phone?"

or the time i made a star trek reference and one of the girls in the back of class rolled her eyes so hard it made me pause mid-sentence

frankly, if I was in an engineering or technical class of any kind and the prof didn't sneak in their nerd hobbies I would think something was wrong. it is your solemn sworn duty to infuse them into slides as examples

i unironically love focus modes and its been super useful for me. they definitely need a v2 because you can only do the one fitness mode that turns on with workouts but id love to have a different screen for an outdoor walk vs bike
have you tried making separate bike and walk ones? I guess you'd have to manually turn them on tho

like i said i run social media and i am on the hook for responding to dm’s on instagram/facebook/twitter which i let alert me until the early evening. turning alerts off entirely would just make me open the apps even more to check things and thats worse

imo remove non-personal accounts from your personal phone, use a work phone or a burner for them, then put that in a drawer and only look at it when on the clock

i had my work email set up on my own phone at my old job, never again

yeah fair enough. I figured there'd be some more granular controls as to what you can block. like I only just noticed on IG there's an entirely separate category for Fundraiser alerts lol

i pay 25 a month to ting for unlimited text/calls and 5 gigs of data per month, and they just throttle after that if you dont wanna buy more

the supercheap plan can go down to like 12 bucks a month after taxes

The guys who leaked the 14/16 inch MBP schematics were caught, their assets seized, and their group effectively no longer exists

Wonder if Russia slapped down on them so that it would smooth over their demand that Apple open an office in their country

sounds like a good combo for an office phone plan, and personal plan, too

i used to use my old iphone 7 as a work device but i went planless since it was always on wifi and pre-covid we had telepresence and voip apps

work got me timbone 13 pro on which i cjed two notification profiles to at least try and keep work/home stuff separated. if there is a shortcut to hide/show the work apps home screen page i might use it.

thus ended my 15 years of having separate phones for work stuff.

couple jobs ago we had a portal for enrolling your phone into MDM so you could get work email on it

it had a big block of legalese you had to agree to before they'd issue you an enrollment token. started off with usual common sense stuff like you're going to use a passcode lock, etc. if you actually took the time to read it the whole way through, you would find that you were agreeing that if you were the subject of a litigation hold or similar, you were agreeing to hand your phone over to general counsel so they could image the whole thing

if you’re subject to this kind of hold they can probably image your personal phone anyway
