I reviewed the 2018 MacBook Air. It’s a great laptop, and it’s probably the machine for most people looking for a new Mac, but Apple needs to make that more clear.

“A pre-existing condition shouldn’t be some kind of scarlet letter Americans have to wear around their neck as they try to get the quality, affordable health care everyone deserves.”

I picked up an iPhone XR to compare it to my XS Max in a review, and in the process, fell in love with Apple’s modern colorful iPhone.

Busting out an old friend today.

Happy 35th birthday, Macintosh!

Halfway through the edit of Sunday’s MPU. I’m really happy with this interview.

I can’t believe I just published this episode. I am super excited to be starting this journey. www.relay.fm/mpu/464

Starting 2019 with something fun.

A look at the most beloved notebook in Mac history: the 12-inch PowerBook G4.

If anyone is in the market for a Sony A7R II body with four batteries, two chargers, original strap and box, shoot me an email: stephen@relay.fm

Asking $1150, shipped in the lower US.

I have a working 12” PowerBook G4 coming to my house today. I’m excited, as mine died sometime in the mast year.

I’m bad at taking Twitter breaks.

Today’s Instagram update un-did its support for the iPhone XS Max screen resolution. 😮

A tour of some weird iPads stands:

Feels like it’s getting close to new tattoo time. My “Ink Ideas” note overfloweth.

Sometimes, the Safari 4 beta and its wacky tab design pops into my mind.

Some work news: 512pixels.net/2018/11/j…

Heading out of town for a no-work week. Feels wrong to travel without a mountain of sound equipment.

I like this attention to detail. Similarly, my iMac Pro shows up in Space Gray in Finder, but on older versions of macOS, a regular silver iMac. I’m glad someone is watching out for that sort of thing on the Mac.

12.9 iPad Pro and Mac mini coming today. RIP, me.

Packing.

Reduced Transparency in Mojave is bad.
