• In light of breaking App Store news, I did a quick check of my digital subscriptions and where I manage my billing:

    • Apple One - duh
    • Netflix - their website
    • 1Password - their website
    • Tweetbot - via App Store
    • CardioBot - via App Store

    If Tweetbot and CardioBot decide to only offer subscriptions outside of the App Store, I will seriously consider replacing them. For 1Password, I don’t know why I’m not subscribed via the App Store.

  • The Skyward Sword Joy-Cons are really cool! 🎮

  • I’m going to sell my Peak Design Everyday Sling, it’s not working for me. This sling is for professional photographers or enthusiasts, which I’m not.

  • First week with the M1 iMac has been really smooth. Installed all my favorite apps and if any of them runs on Rosetta, I haven’t noticed. It just works.

  • Mac Mondays - Hello

    M1 iMac. Finally.

  • Our first ever Olympic gold medal! Congratulations to Hidilyn and the Philippines team! 🇵🇭

  • You can listen to Apple Music Spatial Audio tracks on the Sony WH-1000XM4 if you set it to “Always On” (Settings -> Music -> Dolby Atmos) 🎵

  • Catching up with the Nintendo Direct for E3 2021.

  • My golly this teaser looks really good! I can’t wait to play this for a whole week. I mostly played Spearazon, Elem Pally, and Feral Druid in the original, looking forward to playing the other classes to lvl 70. 🎮

  • I’m curious, am I the only one that uses Full-screen view on my Mac apps?

  • Apple Music with Dolby Atmos is cool, but when will the WH-1000XM4 support it?

  • Passive notifications in iOS 15 makes sense for a lot for apps to engage the user more but I hope it’s not at the expense of the battery life. #WWDC21

  • Swift Playgrounds 4 allows creating SwiftUI apps on an iPad. My M1 iMac and iPad setup is starting to look like a smart choice. #WWDC21

  • MacBook charged. iPad charged. AirPods charged. Snacks and drinks in the fridge.

    I’m ready for #WWDC21

  • When you love your MacBook, but you love your mech kb as well. 😅

  • Mac Mondays - May 25, 2021

    Some updates about my own M1 Mac “transition plan”:

    • Got my Macbook Pro’s battery replaced by third-party repair service here locally. Made my MBP feel a bit new!
    • Ready to buy the new M1 iMac for my family. Still choosing between blue and green.
    • Saving up for the redesigned Macbook Pro that hopefull we’ll see on June 7 #wwdc
  • Got my Macbook Pro’s battery replaced today and somehow it feels like a new machine.

  • Started playing #hearthstone battlegrounds again this weekend to try out the Quillboars and I am pleasantly surprised that I am enjoying it. I thought this type of game mode would be a fad but it is refreshing to play if you want to take a break from ladder. 🎮

  • I’ve been using the 8th-gen iPad for almost a month. I enjoy the bigger screen for Netflix, Twitch, reading, and games compared to the Max-sized iPhone. But it’s also great for reading emails or work chat while you’re eating lunch.

  • The new M1 iMac is a great family computer. I’m not bothered with the bezel and chin, but I can’t decide which color to get 😅. Excited to get one as soon as it is available here, and I’m still planning to buy the M2 MacBook Pro in a couple of years.

  • Day 100! Huge thank you to Paul Hudson @twostraws for creating this great learning experience! #100DaysOfSwiftUI

  • I’m really looking forward to the Loki series on Disney+. I hope it also explores the repurcussions from Endgame.

  • Finally completed Day 99! Took me 3 weeks working a few minutes each day, adding 1-2 lines of code. Got triggered many times by “the compiler is unable to type-check this expression in reasonable time”! #100DaysOfSwiftUI

  • I really enjoyed the Snyder cut. It’s not for everyone though.

    I’m glad Zack Snyder was able to tell his story. Too bad there won’t be more.
