Ever see the Jetsons? George made sprockets. His competitor made cogs. Me, I make widgets. Fantasy has become reality, as my job is futuristic — but what is the future of the Widgets app? With the release of macOS 11… whew …it’s going to take a lot of work to figure that out. After playing with Apple’s WidgetKit and default widgets, there are significant challenges to overcome.
It looks like Apple is killing the Dashboard with the “Catalina” macOS 10.15 update. If you’re like me, this is bad news. I probably press F12 over a dozen times a day. I like checking on the Weather, Stocks and other useful gadgets. It looks like I’m not alone in this disappointment. While the feedback on MacRumors and 9to5Mac is mixed, plenty of people voiced their disappointment with this decision. To help fix this problem, “Dartboard” is the next app from Photics.
Congratulations on another trip around the sun. It is the first of January and the year is 2019. This is traditionally a time of reflection and an opportunity to set new year’s resolutions. Now is a moment to define goals and focus on self-improvement. Some of the recent posts on this website show that I’ve been seriously pondering betterment. What can be done to make this website more successful?
Wow, I was livid with Apple. But on Friday, a Good Friday, I received a series of strange messages from Apple. “Your app (iOS) status is in Review”, “Revisions: New Resolution Center Message”, “Your app (iOS) status is Developer Removed From Sale.” and “The status for your app, Revisions (460834674), is now Ready for Sale.” I had forgotten about the “Revisions” app, figuring that Apple wouldn’t approve it. I was in the process of making new arrangements. I was preparing to leave the Apple ecosystem. But now that my app is approved, the mission continues!
Most hobbies are expensive. And right now, my adventure into farming is still at the hobby level. After growing a few boxes of tomatoes, and a lot of soggy lettuce, I was wondering if I should just give up on the AeroGarden. One consistent finding in the “Hydroponics Experiment” is that it’s simply cheaper to buy veggies at Costco or the local grocery store. I like the idea of growing my own food. But if this is going to work, I really have to cut costs.
