Usually I look forward to all the podcastses to talk about all the good stuff after WWDC. This time around though I have no interest in what most of them have to say. They all are going to talk about the same things over and over for the next few weeks and so on. However, I think the real issue here is that I am a little burnt out on tech podcasts. Again, they all have the same topics and I probably need a break. Except for a few that have a more personal view on these things than just echoing the same news over and over.

Love this rendition, I actually prefer it to the original.
Yesterday I spent a big portion of the day without my iPhone. Why? Because I am an idiot and I bricked it the night before, or so I thought. Well, things is I was also left without access to my music library or Apple Music, so I had the question! What am I gonna listen to on the way to work today? I hate public radio so that was not a option, then I remembered that Compact Discs (CDs) are (or were) a thing and that I might have one or two laying around in the car! And voilà, Menos el Oso by Minus the Bear saved the morning!

The iPhone is fine, it was just stuck on DFU mode and for whatever reason I would not turn back on for me! Took it to the Apple Store after work, Apple wizard did the same thing I tried to do, except that for him it worked (WTH man?). Both my pride an intelligence were unintentionally insulted, laughing out loud .
I found myself thinking about this as I was getting out my car this morning to walk into work. How expensive my backpack is? Not just the backpack itself but with everything that I carry in it, tech wise. Here’s a list of the most expensive things in my backpack right now, as far as tech goes.
SYNAPSE 19 - $200.00
11-inch iPad Pro Wi‑Fi 64GB - Space Gray - $799.00
Apple Pencil (2nd Generation) - 129.00
Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 75mm F1.8 Lens $899.00 (however, I did not paid this much for it myself)
Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 25mm F1.8 Lens - $399.00
Nintendo Switch - $298.94
This makes my backpack worth $3,676.94 🤭😱
That’s bonkers to me.
This week I’m deleting my Twitter account…ish! I have been on twitter since June 2009, according to the app. And I cannot say I’ve had or have a bad experience with it. I mean, I do understand people’s concerns about the platform and its community and bleh, bleh bleh! I just think I have way too many other things in my immediate reality to worry about, than worrying what’s going on/with Twitter. Maybe that makes part of the problem, who knows?
Anyhow! I’m deleting my (underscore)gabytron account, probably by the end of the week but I have opened a new one at pixelgabz. The reason I’m doing this is simply because my old account has become, a little noisy and rather than do a massive unfollowing spree and whatnot, it’s easier to just start over. It’s not like I’ll be loosing thousands of followers or something like that. Having a fresh start will allow me to tailor my timeline I little bit better and focus on the the “content” that I want to see, hopefully it works! If you’re still a Twitter user feel free to give a follow if you want, if not, that’s cool tool el-oh-el.
Wouldn’t it be nice to have the Apple Watch notify you when the phone is fully charged? Just a thought.
You just call on me brother, when you need a hand We all need somebody to lean on I just might have a problem that you’ll understand We all need somebody to lean on
I while ago I wrote about moving my custom domain and blog to Blot. I had made the move and it was good. My workflow to be able to post to both my blot site and still my hosted micro.blog one was the same, nothing changed whatsoever thanks to the magic of Drafts. However, I have moved back my custom domain to Micro.blog simply because, it’s what I like best at the end of the day. Nothing wrong with Blot at all, it’s just a matter of preference I guess. Also because I have been thinking about starting my own Microcast, having evertryhing posted and hosted on Micro.blot makes more sense, in my head that is. But as things always go, this might change later today! Laugh out loud
I might have a different idea for my Blot account, though. I’m thinking about using it to host my photos there, since Blot has some beautiful templates for that purpose. And I think by doing this I can finally get rid of my Instagram account, which I have been thinking about doing so for a while now.
Pit stop at the Apple Store, the iPhone it’s back up, all fixed. And… I don’t want to talk about it! 😅
Don’t know why but I have the urge to play Blaster Master Zero for whatever reason. 🤷🏻♂️
