The good news is that it seems that we all made it onto our respective flights. The bad news is that it looks like my bag may have been improperly tagged to the wrong flight. Hopefully @Delta figures it out quickly and I get my bag delivered home tomorrow ๐Ÿคž

 

Weather throughout the southeast is creating absolute havoc with air travel today. Multi-hour delays and a very late flight back home for me. At least I seem to have been upgraded!

Kudos to my friends at @DreamHost for updating their Twitter profile with a pride-inspired logo for pride month. โœŠ๐Ÿป๐Ÿณ๏ธโ€๐ŸŒˆ

 
 

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.

 

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.

 
 
 

@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 canโ€™t find the script anymore!

 
 
 

The USWNT are the Miami Hurricanes of womenโ€™s soccer. Run up the score, ladies! Enjoy the ride! โšฝ๏ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

 

Okay, I have a first pass of a working Shortcut for that YouTube automation โ€“ https://cleverdevil.io/s/Movie-2019-06-10-19-14.mov โ€“ย Not foolproof, and requires https://opener.link ... still, a promising start.

 

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.

 

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!

 

Mac Pro: Fooled You! – Monday Note

Great post from Jean-Louise Gassรฉe, former Apple and Be executive, on some of the major announcements coming out of WWDC. On a whole, I agree with him that this WWDC was, on the whole, an enormous success for Apple, and a sign that theyโ€™re pointed in the right direction. That said, I also genuinely appreciate his understanding about Appleโ€™s tragic misstep with the $999 stand for their new display:

... good marketing deals with emotions and impressions, not mere reason. The $999 stand was widely mocked in the media, Apple was labeled as greedy and tone-deafโ€Šโ€”โ€Šthe latter definitely deserved. Why mar what turned out to one of the best WWDC keynotes in memory with such a brain flatulence? Why attract so much ink to a mere display stand, to the detriment of more substantial announcements?

Great Product Marketing includes the dark art of pricingย and Apple, still one of the best Product Marketers in the world, can make mistakes.
