You are missing the whole experience.

Could you just call the election for Biden, please? Thanks in advance.

For 2024, can we all chip in and buy a touch screen with less than 1 second latency?

I'm excited to share the broad availability of Textio for Employer Brand! Now you can use for all aspects of your company brand: web copy, social media posts, and more. Not just for hiring anymore!

I had a dream like this once but in it, I hadn’t played in an orchestra for five years and I realized that while I had been gone, everyone had swapped out sheet music for iPads, and I got to rehearsal and didn’t know what app I needed and there was no WiFi. Very stressful!

Nope. And can’t imagine I’ll be seeing the inside of one until sometime in 2021... best case scenario. You’re doing the right thing!

Maybe not (though who knows if the thermals are better), but MagSafe is limited to 15W.

I don’t see it. They will want these initial devices to be absolutely as light as possible relative to power and battery life. 15W charging would be not even enough to keep an 12.9” iPad Pro going at full load.

Disagree. Apple has already said the new MacBooks have Thunderbolt 3, which means they already have USB-C ports and an ecosystem around that.

Once you’re committed to phones magnetically positioning as your strategic “portless phone” solution, having complicated AirPower with 30 coils to try to solve the same “it’s hard to position wireless charging” problem made no sense. MagSafe is more elegant (and proprietary!)

It seems obvious in retrospect that, engineering obstacles or not, MagSafe is why Apple killed AirPower.

Yeah, Apple has a rule that COVID-19 apps must be “from recognized entities such as government organizations, health-focused NGOs, companies deeply credentialed in health issues, and medical or educational institutions.”

I really like this! I’m going to clone and install it myself. I don’t think Apple would allow it in the store though… not sure if that would preclude TestFlight as well.

There will be a CarPlay dongle for sure that adapts the portless phone to work with wired USB CarPlay.

I couldn't tell if the red parts were for emphasis, or parts that had been stricken out with an editing pen.

So I arranged to get that UI work transferred to me and I wrote the spec and included doing extra dev work to override Word's internal code and bring Ctrl+Enter back to prominence, where it has remained for the last 20 years, now copied into dozens of other apps. I'm sorry.

I was barely out of college and I really liked the feeling of hitting Ctrl+Enter to send a mail. It was very viscerally satisfying. Ker-chung! 📨📨📨 But the plan was to unify everything around Alt+S as the permanent "send email" shortcut key forevermore.

All of the legacy MS mail programs used Ctrl+Enter to send mail. All were being discontinued in favor of Outlook as the "one unified mail program." Word, when used as Outlook's editor, changed the "send email" shortcut to Alt+S, because Word used Ctrl+Enter for something else.
