Been an extremely busy day, so I haven’t had a chance to fully stay up-to-date with #WWDC, but from my early reading, I am extremely excited.
Very interested in the automations capability available in Shortcuts in iOS 13, but I need to see some docs and more details. Imagine being able to automatically trigger a Shortcut every day at a specific time, when you join specific Wi-Fi networks, etc. #WWDC
Another #WWDC question: can fonts be installed in iOS and iPadOS from traditional TTF/OTF files?
It is increasingly clear to me that YouTube is a negative force in the world. My kids are both hooked on YouTube, but their inability to properly police their platform has already forced me to remove the app from their devices. There needs to be a better alternative.
Another episode of Two Dads Talking should be on the way tomorrow. Long overdue, but its a good one folks!
Pronouncing “fajitas” as “fuh-ji-tus” is a personal favorite Dad joke.
Got a haircut this afternoon and I’m now so handsome that I can be classified as a weapon. Look out.
Just visited IKEA on a Saturday afternoon and:
1. They had everything I needed in stock.
2. I was able to fit it all in the car.
3. It took less than 30 minutes.
I had an extremely productive Saturday, which is precisely the type of Saturday I generally like to avoid.
A couple of points on Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge:
1. It is incredibly immersive. You honestly feel like you're on another planet.
2. The ride is amazing. I piloted the Millennium Falcon!
3. Blue milk is gross.
A truly awesome experience! Go!
Hey, iOS automation geeks, I have a project for us. I want a Shortcut that will find all YouTube videos embedded in the current open Safari tab, show the URLs in a list, and then open the tapped URL in VLC or other non-YouTube video player app.
Okay, I have a first pass of a working Shortcut for that YouTube automation – https://cleverdevil.io/s/Movie-2019-06-10-19-14.mov – Not foolproof, and requires https://opener.link ... still, a promising start.
The USWNT are the Miami Hurricanes of women’s soccer. Run up the score, ladies! Enjoy the ride! ⚽️🇺🇸
@aaronpk years ago, I wrote a little script that automatically converted a Keynote deck into individual PDF files (one per slide, vector, scalable) and then created a PPTX file out of the result. Not editable, obviously, but a nice shortcut. Sadly, I can’t find the script anymore!
Taxis are officially superior to ride sharing services again. They are often faster, the drivers are more professional, and they usually know where they are going.
Nextdoor is a great social media network that helps you learn that the toxic, broken, bigoted world of global social media is *also* replicated at the *local* level, right in your own neighborhood! Three cheers for technology, folks.
Kudos to my friends at @DreamHost for updating their Twitter profile with a pride-inspired logo for pride month. ✊🏻🏳️🌈
