Nothing Between You And Your Watch

Will an arm sleeve tattoo prevent you from wearing the Apple Watch? If it's a solid color, perhaps.

More Than Music On Your Watch

Like all workarounds, it’s not very straightforward, and to be honest, a bit cumbersome, but if you want to listen to podcasts on your Apple Watch without an iPhone, this is currently your only option. In this post, we’ll show you how to sync podcasts with your Apple Watch.

It's not exactly the same, but it reminded me of the days of downloading podcasts episodes and syncing them to my iPod mini in the days before Apple added support for podcasting.


If you’re looking to quickly build a standalone webpage for a school report, newsletter, holiday highlights journal, or almost anything else, Slate is a terrific option.

But I do think Cerf has a point, that we should take long-term data persistence more seriously. And persistence of access, not just shoving a tape in the attic to gather dust. Will anyone in the future much care? I’d like to think so. Even if we continue to screw things up, hopefully there will be someone left to be interested in what went wrong.

Parting Words

When people are nice in real life, but mean & insulting online, it is the real life persona that is fake.
