Watching bad college football games in my pajamas on a Saturday morning. We’re back baby!

 

I use β€œtype to Siri” all the time on my iPad Pro. Its fantastically powerful and a great feature, but annoyingly, even if you have β€œsilent” mode enabled and your volume all the way down, Siri still audibly responds to your commands. Why?!

 

Sigh... the Google Product Black Holeβ„’ strikes again. They really need to change this behavior if they want to build *any* new line of business other than ads.

Finally finished catching up on the Saga comic series last night. Incredible world building, great characters, and gorgeous art. The cliffhanger at the end of book 54 though? Wow!

Update on USB-C hubs. I've found this one - https://www.amazon.com/Macally-Ultimate-Powered-Charging-Station/dp/B079Y8S4L3/ - which is close to what I want. Too few USB-C ports, but the best option I've found so far. My ideal would be 4x USB-C and 4x USB-A (3.0).

 

Looking for a simple hub for my new home office. I want USB-C to my computer and then 4x USB-C and USB-A ports on the hub. Nothing else (HDMI, Ethernet, microSD, etc.). I can’t find anything!

 

Went to see Blinded by the Light with @cleverangel tonight. In spite of so many things, I really enjoyed it. Its nice to see a genuine, feel-good movie once in a while. Especially one that dunks on fascists.

It was finally time to upgrade my Synology NAS, a four bay DS415+. I just ordered a five bay DS1019+, which is faster, more expandable, and has hardware acceleration for h.264 and HEVC. Anyone want to buy my old unit? It’s great, I have just outgrown it!
