I’ve been looking for a good journal app. I did have Day One, but they went the way of the subscription grift so I stopped using it.I don't know why but I kind of can't wait to try out the journal app that apple is working on. Ive been doing a diary thing in notion but Im in the process to try and get away from the app, using Obsidian for notes now but doesn't handle a photo gallery that well, so apples journal app would be perfect.
Yeah! There are some subscription I can live with, but it's crazy just how everyone wants a piece of my pie. It is the same reason I dumped Day One. I like Notion still when it comes to unintrusive asking for money, I dumped that because how on the web it was, too many times it asked me to log in when I just needed to quickly check or write something. Obsidian seems perfect since I don't need to subscribe to their synching thing, since I can synch through iCloud.I’ve been looking for a good journal app. I did have Day One, but they went the way of the subscription grift so I stopped using it.
The amount of apps I’ve ditched or refunded because they think I’m their cash machine is ridiculous.
Given how much money must be tied to iCloud accounts, all those security checks must be in place.And the refurb MBA I want is out of stock. I would've got it if I was able to get rid of my Pro yesterday, as I'd planned.
Seriously, fuck Apple for this DRM shit. De-registering a device shouldn't be this hard.
This has nothing to do with iCloud accounts, and all to do with hardware DRM.Given how much money must be tied to iCloud accounts, all those security checks must be in place.
Doesn’t make it any less a pain in the ass though!
I might get the most basic Mac Mini given that I only want the ability to manage my Apple ecosystem hub on a big screen.This has nothing to do with iCloud accounts, and all to do with hardware DRM.
Apple's bug has meant I no longer own my MacBook Pro (they've tied it to an iCloud account that literally doesn't exist), and support want to take "7 business days" to deal with it.
On another note, I've been thinking about my use-cases and I'm less angry about missing out on the MBA I wanted. I think I got carried away with the "slower drive" and "less RAM" nonsense, when in reality all I wanted was a bigger screen to write on. I should probably refocus on that and consider the base model again - it'll save me a ton of cash. I don't write code on this, I don't edit videos or pictures, I don't play games. I literally use a word processor and just want a bigger screen for side-by-side editing. For anything else, I have an office PC with an RTX 3080 that I'm planning to use Stable Diffusion on, but will certainly double up as a great machine for image/video editing and any sort of high-end coding projects I find myself involved in (likely none - I've left my old job now so I don't need to do any image editing or coding, and my new one only needs me to know Markdown).
I think 8gb and a slower drive is probably enough for me.
Oh cool. I fell in love with the Natural color when I saw it. I also want a regular Pro but I'm not sure if I'm willing to sacrifice battery time from my Pro Max. But there have been many instances of almost dropping my phone because I have baby hands and that thing has the size of godzilla.Nah, went for blue. Really digging Apple’s blue shade right now.
Not that it matters. It’s going in a case almost immediately.
Should be delivered around late October.
For me, the thing that pushed me over to the smaller Pro is the 3x optical zoom will be more useful for me than the bigger screen, longer battery and, most importantly, the 5x optical zoom in the Pro Max that replaces it.Oh cool.

I’m never gonna need 5x, and I think it might actively be a worse feature for me.
I've been hearing reports that the 15 Pro gets hot too. Kinda concerned, actually.My friend just got his 15 Pro Max and he confirmed it gets very hot
When RE4 releases it will get so hot the apple on the back will get imprinted on your skin
Congrats! I might get mine around FebruaryPosting from an iPhone 15 Pro!
It’s a very nice phone. Got some issues with iMessage not porting over, so I think I’ll probably be contacting Apple support about that.
But it’s not a big deal as all my messages are on WhatsApp these days…
I'll buy a 15 inch Air thenSort of related, but if you were looking to get an M3 Pro mini next year, you might be better off getting an M2 Pro mini now, especially if you can get one at a discount.
Apparently the M3 Pro doesn’t perform that much better than M2 Pro. M3 Pro Chip Barely Faster Than M2 Pro in Unverified Benchmark Result
