Even without Deep Fusion, low light photos on the iPhone 11 Pro are very impressive. I can’t wait to see how much it is improved. I probably will pick up the Halide camera app soon.

“Oh, dad has food, I like food!” 🐶

Pearl has claimed this as her new home. You’d think she was homeless.

After holding a 6# baby all week, all our cats feel like they weight 30#.


My current journal(left) is almost full, so I stickered up the new one in preparations for starting it.

I was checking out the new Apple Maps in my neighborhood and noticed something strange, there seemed to be a gap where there should be houses. I’m guessing Apple is using machine learning to spot and mark houses on the new maps, but it looks like trees foil things.

iPod Classic Usefulness Wanes.

The start of the death of the iPod Classic is coming. I’ve used one in my car since I started driving. My current one I picked up in 2012 when I had one due on me right before a big road trip. It works ok in our 2017 Subaru Outback, but we test drove a new 2020 Outback this weekend, and the car didn’t recognize the iPod at all.

We tested with both an OEM cable and 3rd party but neither got the car to recognize the iPod. Sure it still works great as a stand-alone iPod, although it could use a new battery, after spending the last 7 years sitting in a car. Unfortunately the Classic doesn’t exist anymore, only iPhones or iPod Touches, so my new iPhone is a 256GB version to replace the Classic’s function in the car as music storage, on top of CarPlay GPS usage.

Placed my order for a new phone, big upgrade from my 6S+. Really looking forward to the new cameras and screen. I’m hoping Apple is over estimating the delivery dates and it arrives sooner, as we have a big day (👶) in the middle of the month.

I seem to have a thing for bright green. TWSBI Eco, and a custom Benchmade Mini “Grip”.
