I haven’t misplaced the license dongle. The tripod and gimbal, either together or separately, often disappear for a week or two after I use them. As for the label maker, it went missing for four months in my home office. Only one of these items will let me put the AirTag inside.
The new Apple Store at Westfield Valley Fair Mall in Silicon Valley opened last year. Only to be shut down by the pandemic. Pick-up only and appointment only were available from time to time. The store recently re-opened in 2021. Since Santa Clara County is in the orange tier, my friend stood at a table to buy a mag safe charger and I roamed around the store. Parts of this video were recorded on the ZHIYUN Smooth-X Gimbal Stabilizer for iPhone.
This week Apple announced their new MacBook Air, Mac mini and MacBook Pro. Equipped with the new ARM-based Apple Silicon chip to replace the Intel chips. Apple Silicon will let developers create universal apps to run on iPads, iPhones, and Macs. That sounded promising until I heard the name of the new chip—the M1. That’s unfortunate. The M1 by Cyrix was an Intel chip replacement for the Socket 7 motherboard in 1996. The compatibility and performance issues were so bad that it sucked donkey balls. Will the Apple Silicon M1 be the next Cyrix M1?
What do you do with a status symbol like the Apple Card? Put the titanium credit card in a picture frame! This short montage video shows how to picture frame the Apple Card with an uncut mat board, a balloon glue dot, and a picture frame.
If you got your invitation email to apply for the new Apple Card, and clicked on the link that took you to the Wallet app on your iPhone, you may have gotten the error message that Apple Pay could not connect to the Internet. Except you know that every other app on your iPhone has access to the Internet. Watch this video for two workarounds that can get your Apple Card application submitted.
While many Apple Stores were mobbed on Black Friday 2017, the Apple Park Visitor Center wasn’t too crowded. The newly opened store is behind Apple’s second campus, Apple Park (a.k.a., the mothership), in Cupertino. The out of the way exhibit hall, store, roof terrace, and café is not yet well known to many Apple Store shoppers.
