Considering a non-smart watch for wearing, and especially for outdoor activities when I don’t want screens. Looking for durable and classy. Mechanical is ideal, but I feel like it’s probably above my price range to fulfill what I want. Where’s a good place to start looking?

I visited the new Apple Store in Seattle at University Village the other day. It’s right next to where the old small one was, but probably three to four times the size and way nicer.

Thoughts on Apple Rebuilding Maps

Apple / Opinion

Eddie Cue gave an interview to Matthew Panzarino on TechCrunch where he detailed Apple’s project to rebuild Apple Maps using their data, instead of relying on partners, as they’ve done. Also, it’s launching with the next beta of iOS 12, so that was surprising. Since I just started driving a new car with CarPlay, I’ve been using Apple Maps for driving directions almost daily.

US Supreme Court Anthony Kennedy judge to retire – BBC News: The conservative has been a swing vote on many decisions including the 5-4 rulings that decided same-sex marriage and upheld abortion rights. I’d like to think that I’m not one to panic, but this seems really bad. Anyone that gets put on the Supreme Court is someone we’re going to be stuck with for decades. The idea that a sad jackass like Donald Trump […]

Saw Incredibles 2 (it was great) at Seattle Cinerama tonight and got some pictures of the Blade Runner costumes on display. Definitely my favorite movie theater. I love that instead of waiters and couches their only gimmick is amazing sound and picture quality.
