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

How has Windows had Clipboard history since October 2018 and macOS / iOS still don't have it?
According to my Alfred stats, I use its clipboard feature ~50 times a day, but it feels so essential I'd like it to be built in and have the snippets available across devices.
If you watch someone do certain tasks without a clipboard manager, it feels like you’re watching someone do it with one hand tied behind their back.
Do you use one?
Yes, Clipboard managers are part of modern lifeNo, I don’t use a clipboard managerClipboard managers should always be 3rd partyJust show me the results
