It's been a long December and there's reason to believe maybe this year will be better than the last - Counting Crows

I need a tracking device in my Wookie slippers. On that note, Happy New Year! 🥳 Also, new post is up about my new Apple Watch. TLDR: I dig it

New post up with pic of my new mechanical keyboard - I'm realizing I could use some serious cable management in my home office!

Can I just say what a nice touch it is to include matching dynamic wallpapers on both iOS 14 and macOS Big Sur?

Can't say I'm shocked that Google is moving Google Photos to a paid service but I hoped this day would never come. It was a beautiful thing while it lasted.

2021 iPhone roundup

2020 iPhones not even out yet, but may as well bookmark this page now, lol

"I feel old. I am old." - I feel you Dave, 100 percent 😂

I cannot tell you how disappointing it is that the only company spending millions of dollars of R&D on VR is... Facebook. I was looking forward to plugging into the Matrix. But now I choose the red pill.

Decided to transcribe my handwritten journal entries and scan my old photos from my Zimbabwe trip in the year 2000. It was a lot of work, but what a trip. Maybe I can do something similar with my 1995 backpacking trip through Europe? BTW, there is only one pic of me in Zimbabwe and my clothing is truly horrifying. In my defense, I think I was out of clean laundry...

Android owners jealous of my iPhone 6S getting iOS 14:

New post on the blog to talk about WWDC. It was a good one.

This would have been perfect for my recent 80s throwback post:

Starting to thaw out of self-isolation. And for something completely different, I have a tribute to the 80s up on the blog now.

I’m thinking of building my own PC in 2025, so of course I’ve started researching it now.

What a great time to buy stocks. This market crash is all about Coronavirus fears, not rational economic assessment.

New post up on my blog: “What I got wrong” - a tech retrospective looking at old posts where I made horribly wrong predictions.

I didn't think he could top "Dark Matter", but "Recursion" keeps getting better with every plot twist. Blake Crouch has now become a must-read author for me.

The best 10-minute song of all time is David Bowie’s “Blackstar”.

First post for 2020 is up on the blog. Going to try my best to stick with my one post per month promise this year.
