when I switched to a non apple mouse, I had to install a third party app for my m4 and m5 buttons to do anything. it just wonks!

yeah pretty good that fedora worked better with my peripherals than macos does. a macbook as a self-contained device is great but holy poo poo has my docking experience been a nightmare

the best part about being a dumbass nerd is configuring your computer in an extremely specific, stupid, and counterintuitive way and then ree'ing out and needing to download a million github repos any time you want to change your workspace setup even slightly. all i did was buy a desk after 6 months of working from my couch :eng99:

I enjoyed going out to parties with only my cellular watch instead of the distraction engine that was my phone.

I currently enjoy booping it onto the reader to pay for the bus, and last night it was kind enough to hold back enough battery power to keep that part working even when it was otherwise dead.

that's my Apple Watch story.

same, i actually find watch + airpods a lot _less_ distracting than my phone, mostly because of screen size constraints and limited app access.

the phone will push a duo notification to your watch though and you can approve from that notification? been using that for ages, it's really nice

I've been using no-name bluetooth earbuds and they're "whatever", but are the airpods a significant upgrade?

if you have Apple devices and have had pairing issues with generics, yes. airpods by far the best pairing ability I've seen on bt. fast, always works, never have to forget and re-pair, etc

the iphone notch is at least well-proportioned/designed, and the bezel around the screen is equal width the whole way around except for the notch

some android phones came up with some deranged notches in comparison
