  • Thoughts On MagSafe

    I’ve been reading and thinking about the new MagSafe feature of the iPhone 12 models. First, I don’t really think this technology is comparable to the old MagSafe on Apple MacBooks. I personally don’t think it’s worthy of the name, as there’s nothing specifically safe about it; If your dog trips over the cord, your […]?

  • Reply Feature In Apple Messages

    I found a new reply feature in messages this weekend. It was added in iOS 14.

  • Quibi Is Gone

    So, it’s official. Quibi has shut down. Quibi seemed like a strange idea from the start, and surely wasn’t executed very well. I saw a bunch of their shows advertised on Amazon Prime, and a couple looked interesting, but not enough to get me to try out the service; I never even looked into if […]?

    The embargo for reviewing the new iPhones 12 was lifted. These phones should be in customers hands starting this Friday. I don’t have a review myself, as I’m holding out for the iPhone 12 Pro Max; hopefully I can actually hold such a big phone. Here are some of the reviews I personally enjoyed: Unfortunately, […]?
