My iPhone which is on Public Beta 14, decided it didn’t want to connect to the internet this morning. The problem was I was standing at the grocery store at the time trying to email my husband to pick me up. This is one of those times when you realize how much you depend on the Internet.
I received my first mechanical keyboard today. A Keychron K2 Bluetooth Mechanical keyboard with Gateron Brown switches. The first thing I noticed when I took it out of the box was how solid and heavy it was. I should have brought a wrist rest and will need to add that to my next order. This is my first mechanical keyboard, although it does remind me of the typewriters that I learned to type on back in the '70's. Currently I am typing this to my iPad pro. Switching it from the iPad to my Mac mini is a bit awkward but doable. After spending so much time typing on a cheap flat keyboard with membrane it is going to take some time to get used to typing on a mechanical keyboard. However, my initial review is positive. Also I have also started to watch videos on modding keyboard. I think I maybe entering a rabbit hole.
This is a Rotring 600 0.5mm drafting pencil.I purchased from Jetpens for about $30.00.
It arrived on Saturday and I have been using it ever since. I first heard of this pencil years ago, while listening to Myke Hurley talk about it on the Penaddict imagine My first thought when he started talking about it was no pencil is worth $30.00. I can tell you without a second thought that the Rotring 600 is worth the $30.00. It has an hexagonal brass body,which gives it the right amount of weight to have a quality feel. I like that the clip is neither too loose or too tight. I also like that is placed down near the bottom of the body, so it is not in the way when I grip the pencil. The tip of the pencil where the lead comes out is thin, making it great for getting right next to rulers or in other tight spots. I have been playing around with the lead indicator and am still trying to figure out what shade and hardness of lead I prefer.
I do wish there was a way to protect the tip when I store the pencil and I had more choices in colors. However that being said, this is my first quality mechanical pencil and I am very happy with it.
I am forwarding my Gmail account to Hey during the 14 day trial and have a couple of questions. In Gmail I have some filters that forward certain newsletters to Feedbin, will those filters still work. Second I am trying to figure out how to deal with shopping emails that I don’t want to see most of the time, but at certain times I do (Christmas, birthdays…), any suggestions on how to handle those emails.
Does anyone know how to fully quit the Apple Music app. I swept it away, but it stills shows up on my Home Screen and will not release my audio.
