Heading to the Apple Store. Going to hold that new M4 iPad Pro in my hands.

Try out that new Apple Pencil.

See if I can see that fountain pen shadow for myself.

@BasicAppleGuy I love the pre-recorded sessions, but I do miss the big gatherings and those great banners..

What web platforms are people enjoying for writing technical content that aren't Medium? I want something low friction to get setup and running, that allows for well structured articles, code syntax highlighting, etc.

Traditionally, I've used https://gohugo.io for this.

@tonyarnold I’ve been very tempted to try this: https://www.hackingwithswift.com/articles/266/build-your-next-website-in-swift - Paul did a live of it for subscribers and it looks really nice.. then produced this page..

Apple Photos also is doing some sort of plant photo analysis and can tell you what the plant is.. I’ve been using that as I take walks to capture potential new plants for the yard… https://mastodon.macstories.net/@johnvoorhees/112479804417893869

When I was in high school and I was just starting to get super into #Apple, I was very very broke. These stickers were like a badge of honor when I eventually got my first Mac when I started college.

15 years later, I’m not sure I could tell you what happened to a single sticker we’ve gotten since.

@developerjustin Ya, same.. I had some on my car years and years ago, but just don’t feel like sticking them on anything anymore. :(

What’s the number 1 thing that you want to achieve in the next few months?

For me this will be shipping at least one more course re-explore SwiftData and significantly increase my blog and YouTube contents with both “fundamental” content as well as proper deep dives

So yeah, that’s not just a number 1 thing 😂 if I had to summarize “expand my educational offering”

lwdupont,
@lwdupont@mastodon.social avatar

@MuseumShuffle @donnywals Hope that works itself out.. doesn’t sound fun :(

Today I finished my second day in the role of Director of Software Engineering at Traveler’s Insurance. My primary focus areas are onboarding and mentoring early-in-career engineers and supporting the engineering development experience. I’m SO excited at the potential for making an impact in so many young people’s lives, and for the chance to advocate on behalf of the engineering organization!!

Sweet and sour Oreos is a thing.

I'm more salt than sugar, but I do like trying all the different Oreo combos. Some are just awful, but some really land.

This something you'd try?

My grandmother passed away today. I feel so privileged to have known her, and for my children – her great-grandchildren! – to have known her too. 98 is a fantastic age, and I’ll always remember her love and kindness ❤️

@twostraws Sorry for your loss Paul… sounds like great memories though!! :)

It’s 11:47am and I’ve already had enough of today. I’m going to have a nap, then make some tea, and start again in 90 minutes. Fingers crossed that works…

@twostraws I hope it worked! 🙂

I cannot believe this.

Every time I see something like this it makes me wish I could work on it for real. By “for real” I mean as my day job. I have so much work to do and having a full time job wears me out enough that it’s often times difficult to work on it.

I am so grateful for the attention Apple has given my little app. ❤️ https://mastodon.social/@gedeonm/112186045777752459

@twostraws Huh.. I thought you had stopped them, I hadn’t gotten one since September:

I wonder if we'll see more details about a minor Rivian R1 refresh now that the R2 and R3 are announced. Things like a NACS progress update, V2H, and a heat pump would be awesome

lwdupont,
@lwdupont@mastodon.social avatar

@christianselig In one of the reviews I watched with RJ he hinted at it coming..

lwdupont,
@lwdupont@mastodon.social avatar

@christianselig Ya, he was very vague.. like “R2 has great tech advancements that some will go to other product lines” type of thing, with me totally paraphrasing what I heard him say (or mean).

lwdupont,
@lwdupont@mastodon.social avatar

@nick @christianselig Yes!! That was it! Sounds like I overstated what I thought I heard him say. 😂

Feeling stressed? Here’s some advice from my dogs: take a nap.

It’s weird but this list being so short is more of a feature than a bug to me. There is a kind of novelty to being able to see the whole list in 30 seconds that just doesn’t exist on services like Netflix where it feels like you’re standing at the bottom of a well lined with movies you’ve never heard of https://www.macworld.com/article/2252986/apple-tv-51-free-movies-subscriber-bonus.html

lwdupont,
@lwdupont@mastodon.social avatar

@developerjustin Totally agree! A nice short list of some pretty good movies.. I’ve watched a few already!

I love the Apple TV + is becoming the Sci Fi network. 👍 https://socel.net/@TheSpaceshipper/112017799952879996

Beacon 23 Season 2 premieres on April 7 on MGM+ with eight new episodes.

That's the advantage of having shot two seasons before broadcasting the first.

@TheSpaceshipper I’ve been enjoying the book. Have you caught the first season? Is it good? :)
