Sad to see Apple retailer Gravis being shuttered: if it wasn’t for my college job selling Macs & iPods there while studying political science, I’m not sure I would have switched degrees and ended up working in the software industry. https://chaos.social/@obrhoff/112104761807774327

Thanks to all the #marchintosh reminders I finally got around to taking the pram battery out of the iMac G4. Hopefully it’ll last a few more decades now…

Well that's a new one – had to restart the Apple TV remote when it randomly stopped being able to control our soundbar via IR. Good to know that's a thing… https://support.apple.com/en-euro/102569#:~:text=Restart%20your%20remote&text=Hold%20the%20buttons%20down%20for,Wait%20while%20your%20remote%20restarts.

Congratulations to all the parents of young kids who put them to bed far too late last night and paid the price for it today – you've made it through the day!

It’s not often that an Apple product gets worse over time, but after a few good years the HomePod setup (2 large 1st gen HomePods and 2 minis) we have is so unreliable and buggy: stereo pair drift out of sync, songs don’t play and I don’t even need to bring up Siri.
Now the bass woofer on one of the large HomePods has died… Back to Sonos I think!

Looks like the bass speaker has blown on one of my original HomePods. Easily the best speakers I’ve owned and perfect for the first two years, but the software experience has gone steadily downhill ever since. #homepod #music #speaker

Watched Mary Poppins with the kids for the first time – got to say it really holds up. It’s only the 3rd thing they’ve really watched and it was a real rollercoaster of emotions. And how good were those matte paintings?

Just love the now playing view in iOS 17 when album artwork gets the full bleed treatment – and the subtle animation is just 🤌#ui #ios #music #ios17
