I never really learned calculus, and I wouldn’t say it’s common to use it. Linear algebra is only common when doing low-level graphics programming, and only very basic stuff (matrices and matrix multiplication used for transforms, which you just call functions to do for you).

Fun fact: Marc Newson (who helped design Apple Watch), had designed a gorgeous mechanical watch in the 90s. Apple Watch shares a lot of heritage/inspiration from it.

It’s even funnier when I mentally pronounce “ahole” the way a text-to-speech engine would.

Things I pay for that have never let me down when their competition frequency did: Yeti, Briggs and Riley, Bellroy, Allen Edmonds, and American Express

Just regular. I’ve yet to find any Bluetooth-equipped cooking gadget for which the Bluetooth part worked properly and was convenient enough to use more than once.

No experience with Pelican; otherwise, I agree with this entire list. Just two days ago, I was so delighted by my new Thermoworks Dot oven thermometer. A simple device, but so much better than the rest. (always buy Thermoworks from their own site, not Amazon, lots of fraud)

Doesn’t yet, but it’s planned. It’s a big job.

Good customer service is nice, but what’s even better — see also Apple butterfly keyboards — is not needing it in the first place because the product works properly. I don’t have time to contact customer service for a power brick or USB hub. These simple products must just work.

I just never tried to call it the “Ten”. In my ears, it will always be the “Ecks.” I’m looking forward to next year’s “Xone” (pronounced “eleven”).

no joke, my brain pronounces SpaceX as "Space Ten" now, it's infuriating

Anker’s Lightning cables are the sole exception for me, too — the only ones that haven’t broken. But I’ve had terrible luck with Anker’s USB-C chargers/hubs/dongles.

iPhone X: 2716 mAh — iPhone XS: 2658 mAh iPhone XR: 2942 mAh iPhone XS Max: 3174 mAh The XS with a 2.2% smaller battery than the X gets 30 min more battery life thanks to the 7nm efficiency gains. Most excited for the XR battery benchmarks though.

No. Watch features are the same regardless of whether you pay for Premium.

It’s special only in two ways: - It’s always on top of the playlist sorting order - It gets auto-created if it doesn’t exist and you select “Add to Queue” somewhere

I didn’t think a pref was necessary since there’s a systemwide toggle. But I’ve decided to add a switch for it in the next update. It’s too controversial — lots of people say they love it, but enough people hate it (AND don’t want to use the system toggle) to offer a pref.

I’ve had this happen with almost every third-party Lightning cable I’ve ever used regularly. Hasn’t happened once with the MANY Apple Lightning cables I’ve used.

Wait. Is it pronounced ecks-callback-url, or ten-callback-url?
