I would like to age like Jeff Goldblum.
My gear list for our trip to Iceland is growing by the day. I’m going to have to make some hard decisions to keep weight down.
I need a drone that works like a Russian doll. Starting at the size of my Phantom 4 Pro all the way down to the small size of my Airhogs DR1 with 4 or 5 steps between.
Occasionally I will have need to transfer photos from Eliza’s iPhone X to my Windows 10 laptop. I’ve found the process of transferring the photos to be excruciatingly slow, unreliable, and frustrating. That is, until I figured out a better way.
Most tutorials, including Microsoft’s own, will recommend you plug the phone into your computer, open the Photos for Windows 10 app, and import the files through that app. But this never worked for me. I was attempting to transfer just under 5,000 photos and the process rarely worked for more than a few hundred before the phone disconnected, the process halted, or an error message popped up.
It turns out there is a better way. Here are the steps I recommend.
Using this process proved to work reliably and much quicker than going through the Photos app. Also, toggling that one option in Settings made a world of difference in reliability.
Of course, this was my experience, your mileage may vary.
Joel Embiid, Center for the Philadelphia 76ers:
Listen, I know it’s a stereotype, but have you ever seen a normal, 30-year-old white guy shoot a three-pointer? That elbow is tucked, man. The knees are bent. The follow-through is perfect. Always. You know how in America, there’s always an older guy wearing like EVERLAST sweat-shorts at the court? That guy is always a problem. His J is always wet.
I’m that guy. I’m the problem! 🙂
At least, I hope to be for a few more decades.
Palmer Lucky, co-founder of Oculus (no longer with the company):
The product they put out is reasonably solid, but is nowhere close to what they had hyped up, and has several flaws that prevent it from becoming a broadly useful tool for development of AR applications. That is not good for the XR industry. It is slightly better than Hololens in some ways, slightly worse in others, and generally a small step past what was state of the art three years ago – this is more Hololens 1.1 than Consumer AR 1.0.
He didn’t hold back. But, then again, I wouldn’t expect him to.
Seeing every social tool begin to see growth is very reassuring. I think a decentralized future – one where no one network owns all people or content – is coming. It won’t just be Mastodon or just blogs or even just Micro.blog. It will be them all and others.
If you’re new to Mastodon my post from over a year ago is still very relevant if you need to catch up on what it is, how it works, etc.
