  • Lifx launches new HomeKit switch, filament & white candelabra bulbs

    No output rating either. Pretty useless article.
    LIFX bulbs, at least when I researched extensively, were the brightest smart bulbs on the market. I went with LIFX because when I want my room well lit I want it well lit. hah. After some growing pains and some software updates they have been very reliable. Not needing a bridge is a huge plus in my book, too. Ive been very happy with the brand so far. I have a lamp with these edison style bulbs so I might upgrade them at some point, too.

  • Pixar poster signed by Steve Jobs sells for $31,250 at auction

    I’ve never understood why people spend money for a signature...

    When you buy a painting, it’s signed by the artist to authenticate the painting.  

    Someone paid $31K for an authenticated poster...

    The “Cult of Steve Jobs” lives!


    I totally get it. Signatures, and handwriting in general, can be very a very powerful, human reminder of the person who made it. After my mother suddenly passed away years ago, every time I would try to go through her personal effects I would come across something handwritten and it would just cause me to start crying. It surprised me because I did not realize something as simple as a mundane item in her own handwriting would be powerful enough to cause that.

  • Here are over 150 new features and changes in iOS 12 for iPhone and iPad

    • Leveler removed from Compass app

    Wait, what? The Leveler is insanely useful on our iPhones! Is it being put in another app or taken out completely? And if taken out completely, why would they do something like that?
