Music yearly replay list are dumb when you have more than a one family member, drive in cars or listen to focus music at work. That’s why I don’t think Apple cares about it and I don’t either.

Slow Horses is back and it’s still brilliant.

I really enjoyed the 60th Anniversary Doctor Who special part 1. Very polished and lots of fun.

Looks like heat wave 🥵

Temperatures over the next week. Minimums of 25 and two days of 40 degrees Celsius.

Yesterday I wrote an email and decided to get Copilot Enterprise to “improve it”. The result bordered on spam and felt like a marketing department had written it for me. I promptly sent the original email I had typed.

Read a post the other day that basically accused Apple of causing kids to be bullied because they make a good phone. Yes, that’s right Tim Cook sits around thinking up ways to bully kids. For serious 🧐

Microblog app or “Add to Dock”?

Stage Manager is much more enjoyable on a big screen. (27" 4K)

Another weekend and some hours ticked off Zelda TotK and it’s still so much fun. Love finding new things to explore like accidentally getting the fifth sage before I was “supposed” to. Now I’m after sage’s wills and finding all the temples.

Kinda uncanny to be watching “Family Blood” episode of Doctor Who on Rememberance Day. It just happened that way.

Loki finale was brilliant and everything I wanted. Reminds me of Doctor Who so much in its playful yet serious take on time travel.

Perfectly said from Birchler. I saw the video before going for a run and thinking about all the demos. My primary concern is how this would possibly work perfectly with an iPhone and there is no way, it would not work with iMessage at all. 🤷‍♂️

Thanks Generative AI and Adobe Firefly.

iPhone lock and Home Screen.

I’m loving the blues in this photo.

Hemispheric Views is one of my must listen shows and Episode 97 - Duel of the Defaults! was so much fun. The competition to score how “default” their apps were was gripping to the end. So here is mine.

I think I scored pretty high in the end.

Loki is still the best thing Marvel/Disney has made.

Spent many hours of my teenage years playing this and other Palladium RPG’s. this was my first introduction to TMNT

Put back my socials as my experiment proved I still used them just as much but had to search in spotlight every time I opened them. I have made them less reachable.

This icon says it all really, Microsoft has no class.

All my screens right now. I’m working hard to show one piece of information in one place, weather being the only exception. I also have the same icon layout whether it be for work or not, I use focused modes to swap wallpaper.
