Hi! Do you remember blogs? Well, this used to be one. Now it just serves as an archive for my multiple Twitter accounts.

As a Mac person it didn’t even occur to me that the motherboard I was buying in 2016 might not include support for wireless everything.

How come Oculus Touch ships with a guitar mount for Rock Band VR, but Rock Band VR can’t use the Rift’s Bluetooth connection for the guitar?

With users complaining about the 32-bit app error message, I just reached the point where 50% of my iTunes Connect is “developer removed” 😑

(It’s from 2011. Didn’t realize it was six years old but it still should be able to tint a screen orange.)

My Mac mini isn’t compatible with Night Shift. Surely it’s capable of tinting a screen orange.

I’m still hesitating about Mysterium, which doesn’t seem right to buy on PC, but the iOS version is 1.1 GB and my iPad only has 32.

Was trying to resist the impulse to buy Tabletop Simulator on sale and happened upon the “prototyping games” section and well I own it now.

For an OS update that takes ages to upgrade the filesystem, nice that it doesn’t drown you with redundant questions on first boot, for once.

I’m trying to rage-uninstall the game but the Bethesda launcher refuses to reopen.

I will not be defeated!

By a launcher.

Plus, of course luck was involved, because 1) it’s a card game 2) either Naarifin is intrinsically over-powered or the game’s difficulty curve is fucked.

I get that the intention is probably “prove that defeating him wasn’t just sheer luck” but the effet is more like “go fuck yourself.”

Elder Scrolls: Legends’ story mode may have just lost me, giving me the exact same damn fight against Lord Naarifin twice in a row.

I beat my previous streak! Should probably stop now so I have a chance to do so again in a couple of months.

The smaller 9.7” iPad is $70 cheaper than the only 7.9” Mini (which has an A8), but then when’s the last time Apple’s product ranges made sense?

(How little profit margin for an Apple product obviously. I’m sure it’s quite healthy enough.)

In other words, they’ve lowered all the iPad prices as far as they could go. Wonder how much (or little) profit margin is left.

Okay, the 128GB Mini is now at the price 32GB was last year. So, to sell 32GB now, it’d have to be $300, which I guess would be too cheap.

RT @parrots: Devious. [maps.google] now redirects to google/maps, so granting location permission is for [google.com] domain. https://t.co/2huLa9guBP

So, basically, hashtag wishful thinking. (Though I’d then have to choose between iPad Mini Pro and Oculus Rift for my next paycheck 😰)

I can’t see Apple announcing a new CPU or design via press release, so I guess the only other option is an iPad Air 3 with the Pro’s CPU? Which is dubious… but possible.

If tomorrow’s update is indeed about the iPad, I’m wondering if a 7.9” Pro might be the only model Apple would considering launching without making a press presentation.
