what kind of autistic screeching is that? when will you not have your phone on you near the homepod? itís not portable and it stays in one spot in your house and itís airplay so if your phone is anywhere in wifi range it works fine.

i use a bluetooth speaker every day while riding bikes and thereís no point in my day where my phone isnít less than 50 feet from my speaker.

if you carry more than 6 cards, you're blowing it. I have two id's, my debit card and my library card. there's no reason for you to carry your best buy rewards card wherever you go.


also I have a hip pouch and messenger bag because I live on my bike and especially in the summer I wear women's shorts which have negative pocket space but my storage capacity is ++. my phone is in a case because i found a cute case but it's ok if your phone is or is not in a case because its a personal choice.

i'm trying to get the faces feature in photos to work on OSX, since it never really worked on my phone. I pulled down all the originals in my library to this new mbp and it happily scanned 700 photos a month ago and then stopped ever since. I don't really want to manually tag 40k photos so how do I kickstart it?

somebody gifted me a mid 2011 iMac 21" and its extremely needs suiting for my nontechnical lifestyle but two questions:

1) is there any useful kind of twitter client that I can dock on one of my desktops? I use tweetbot for iOS but lol if i'm going to pay 10 bucks for it again

2) is there a remote control app that lets me adjust volume? aka I watch hulu on this when im in bed and it would be great to be able to control the volume without getting up

i went from a 7 to an XS last week because upgrading was the same cost as a battery swap and while this phone is nice i feel like phones in general arenít exciting anymore. it was cool as hell 10 years ago to be like ďthis one has a front camera!Ē ďthis one has a gps!Ē but thereís no mind blowing features anymore.

work had a bunch of wireless charging pads so iím trying it out and thatís cool but itís not like thatís some crazy feature. i do want to get a so stand for my nightstand tho.

are there any qi charging pads that look like a grown up would use them? iíve been looking at stands because that seems waaaay more useful than a pad on my nightstand but everything is ugly and/or doesnít list the actual charging power.


also in general i am just super unimpressed by the general accessory industrial design. everything looks waaaaaaaay too techlord and i dont need my electronics to be liquid metal extensions of my arms.

also also iím assuming the qi chargers are cross compatible with MY PARTNER the android haver yeah?

my bose QC35s own pretty hard, they dont break up much

airpods are trash

love too walk down the street and have them break up and hiccup every block or two

ikea eneby BT speaker? it breaks up with apple watch in the middle between it and the source phone

i have a problem with speakers ok i have likely a dozen BT sets around and a lot of them have really awful performance when in and around other BT devices. it's just a thing - like wifi - too much in one spot and none of it works that well

so the other thing here is if you want perfect audio fidelity you should not use a wireless standard. bt audio is ďpretty goodĒ but youíll never get the best sound.

what speakers are you buying? almost all of us use ueboom, jambox, boombotix, and jbl flips and the only distortion any of us get is by a construction site where theyíre definitely using that frequency for something.
