WTF happened at Apple?!?!

After thinking more about the WWDC keynote and seeing the various betas that are now out, I have to ask, WTF happened as Apple appears to be listening to Apple fans and giving us what we want.

Now nothing is ever perfect, but if you look at the list of things that Apple fans have been wanting, it seemed like they hit every reasonable request they possibly could.

iOS 11 on the iPad looks exactly like what Federico Viticci and Fraser Speirs have been begging Apple for on Canvas their iOS productivity podcast.

WatchOS got updates that matched what Tailosive Tech asked for on youtube

Then, the most obscure feature that Merlin Mann has been asking for, the automatic deletion of unused apps, even showed up.

So, I think something important has changed internally at Apple. It seems the years of whaling and gnashing of teeth that the apple fanboy community has caused some changes and I couldn't be happier.

With my best friend Lucas, we started a beer podcast called Untitled Beer Podcast.

Not the most original name but it is more just an excuse for us to get together for drinks once a week and talk about stuff.

If you like beer and drunken commentary then you might find it amusing.

Any constructive criticism is appreciated and you can contact me via twitter @mulderc

If you would like to join in we would be happy to buy you a beer! please just contact me

Inside a Philips Hue bulb

I have been using Philips Hue lights for years now and like them a lot. They are probably the easiest way to add some color and smart home automation to your home. Today one of my lamps fell over and damaged a brand new bulb. I thought I might as well share with everyone what they look like inside.

Here is the light right after getting damaged.

I then peeled away some of the broken glass which showed the LEDs which are encased in what appears to be a plastic bubble.

The light actually still works!!!

If you enjoyed and would like to help fund a replacement bulb, I take bitcoin ;)
