I wrote perhaps my most popular blog post ever just over 2 months ago. I talked about how I bought, used, and subsequently didn’t like the iPhone 6. I would be sticking with Android…or so I thought. Shortly after that post got popular, I was compelled to take another look at iOS.
I’ve decided just this morning that I’m going to start each day with an educational video that’s less than 5 minutes long.
A couple of years ago I spent a weekend with a group of friends when I realized they all knew way more than me about things not in their professional field. Since then, I’ve been listening to podcasts and reading non-tech related books and articles.
Being sick sucks.
After the very, very busy summer I had I suppose it was bound to happen. I came back from a 10 day trip to FL/CA in which very little sleep occurred, got a root canal, then went out for another sleep-deprived weekend that included a 21 hour day (a great day, by the way – if you have a chance to see Zac Brown Band in concert, do it).
On Monday my body said enough is enough and I was down for the count for a couple of sleep filled days. I’m just about 100% now and ready for the Fall!
What a week! I just got back from sunny California, where I went to Disneyland, the d23 Expo, and the Burbank studio lot, as well as visited with friends at CigarPress 2015. As I will not be able to sum all of that up in 100 words, expect another post or two.
Finally, I spent the week putting my new Nikon D3300 to the test. I shot mostly manual and loved it. I got some great shots. Album to come.
I just wrote 1700+ words about the iPhone. That post will publish tomorrow, so keep an eye out for it.
I did this using iA Writer on my iPad flying down to Florida. It was a pretty nice experience, given I got the QODE Keyboard Case by Belkin. It’s great. I strongly recommend it.
The other great part of the experience was after I wrote it on the iPad, I booted up iA Writer on my Mac, and the file was just there, making moving it over to WordPress a breeze.
Handoff/sync is a great feature. But more on that tomorrow.
Last night while reading a new book on my roof I witnessed smoke coming from a building several blocks away. “Something is definitely on fire.”
I snapped a few photos and told some friends and family. One friend was on a scanner giving me updates while I also checked social media. All-in-all it was a pretty interesting experience.
No one got hurt thankfully but they are demo’ing the building today. At one point, the declared “imminent collapse” of one of the sides of the building.
In the photos you’ll see mostly smoke & flames. New camera will be here tomorrow.
I came across a story today with the headline How your smartphone’s battery life can be used to invade your privacy. I only read part of it, but I assume it’s completely sensational nonsense. So for today’s post, I’d like to make up some more sensation headlines about privacy.
Using deeply personal device that is constantly connected to Internet may compromise privacy
Posting your activities online may be used to invade your privacy
Doing things outside may compromise privacy
Telling people what you did last night may be invasion of privacy
If you do anything people might know
I don’t fancy myself a designer in any sense. Yes I make websites and tinker with Photoshop. I’d like to be one. But I’m not.
Sticker Mule then asked if I’d like to list my design on their marketplace and I obliged! You can now buy my sticker, Summertime Cigar over at Sticker Mule. I ordered a 5 pack for myself and can’t wait for them to come in!
