It is annoying to watch your hairline recede. It is even more annoying to be a mute spectator of the juggling act that gets payed every day over your head.

Of course, I had to write about the experience of these struggling, surviving fighters left behind.

🎵 A great song this - Here I dreamt I was an architect

I need to listen to more from this band - The Decemberists, for their great acoustic.

It’s difficult to maintain, support and improve legacy features. Always better to clean the slate and start fresh with a new design and current technology stack.

Unfortunately, that liberty is not accorded every time.

Alto’s back with a new adventure →

The main evolution is that Alto has learned to embrace his adventurous side: this time he is calling the shots and stepping out into the larger world on his own terms.

Exciting! 🤗

HomePod is speaker first, after all →

Siri on the HomePod doesn’t need to be terribly clever to keep up with Alexa in my house.

A great review by @jack about things that matter to a regular customer. Above statement resonated for me too — what Alexa gets asked is limited.

There is no better way to sign-off the week than enjoying a sumptuous meal with your family, sharing lots of stories & laughs and a cheery time together.

I wish there was a single place where I could see all my paid subscriptions. There is a reason at times I prefer subscribing via App Store, even if it is a buck costly.

I am not sure what the solution is, but there needs one given more services rely on a subscription model now.

Finally managed to document the journey embracing IndieWeb principles on my site built with Hugo. This has been a pretty satisfying project, especially given it has inspired me again to write more - and of course post to and from micro.blog.

I am seriously considering closing my gmail account. I am weary of dumping more and more of my data to Google data farm.

But I wonder what are the alternatives? Preferably hosted ones.

So the timeline is full of individual’s HomePod reviews. And almost everyone’s loving it. Hardly seen anyway complain about Siri yet.

I guess just the experience Apple wanted. I know, the frustrations will slowly trickle in. A good first impression nonetheless.
