I ordered the Magic Keyboard. Waiting This keyboard is gorgeous, weighty, backlit. It basically kind of projects the iPad screen up towards you, and it looks like it’s just floating there. There’s a fucking touchpad with OS integration (a cursor on iPadOS is *really weird*) and it has a passthrough USB-C port so I can still charge something while it’s charging.

one of the enduring myths of american exceptionalism is that their system is the best, the most sophisticated, and so anything it can’t do must be beyond the realm of possibility

relatedly, if you have an apple watch and are just like, watchOS 7, eh, dive into complications, including the ones provided by the apps watchsmith and carrot.
apple changed the whole system subtly so that apps can define as many complications as they want, and the same complications can be used for multiple infograph settings.
it fucking unlocks a whole world of potential for your watch face
hey chrome nerds, is there a good simple new tab extension that provides time, temperature/weather, and shows the contents of a bookmark folder?
that's seriously all I want on my new tab page and I can't find anything that fits the bill. 'Currently' is good but only shows time and weather, and 'Favorites' is really close but doesn't have temp/weather, and requires you to click once before you can see the bookmarks.
