  • CNN blames Apple for bombarding users with repeated Apple News push notification [u]

    I’m an Apple diehard but this was definitely on their end. I received a sht ton of notifications from the news app from faux noise about the SOTU. I got around 1 alert every 30 seconds or so. I shut off notifications for news and when I turned it back on a couple hours later it was fine. Glad it got sorted out.

    If it ran iOS, I might be interested. And, the flip-phones were much nicer than the slide ones. I can't remember what brand/model I had around 2000 anymore, but I loved that thing in terms of ergonomics of a phone.
    Motorola V60? That and the startac were my favorite phones before my crackberry

    Bring on everyone picking it apart piece by piece of what's wrong with it and that a product that was delayed should work 100% perfect. I'm sure everyone will bitch about Siri right off the bat because it can't do one little thing. 
    You know what’s worse? The folk who’ll bore us with their home set up before rubbishing it. 

    “Well, I’m sitting in front of a 12 foot by 12 foot Horn of Gondor rig tricked out with Siren of Death Tweeters, an Earbleeder Speaker just for the bass, a Crustbuster Subwoofer because I can, and a Brassiere Flange Turntable encased in a block of solid Adamantium. My wife has taken the kids and left, the cat has moved into a house in the next town, the dog is deaf and the local airline complains of air turbulence when their jets  fly over my house. I sold a kidney and a lung to buy this setup, so why in the world would I want a piece of junk like the HomePod??”

    🤣🤣🤣 This made me laugh out loud for real. Funny and sad but true at the same time.  
  • How to master the Camera app on iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro

    Using the Pro, what is the best technique for extreme close up? Which lens or setting will give the greatest detail on a closeup of a tiny insect on a tiny flower?
    Get an external macro lens like the ones made by moment and sandmarc. I have the sandmarc set (wide, take, macro and fisheye) and all of them are incredible.
