When you discovery an old Apple easel-style display, including the giant ADC to DVI adapter, you just have to hook it up to a brand new Retina iMac to see if it works, right?

Apple Music UX
How they confused all of us from day one.

Looks like Apple Music is confusing to people new to streaming music and those who have tried all of the other services. As I flipped through these slides I kept yelling at the screen Why? Why did they do that? How is that a good idea? I regained some sanity knowing that I was not the only one who thought the app tough for all user types.
Apple just threw its hat into the music streaming ring. Will its onboarding make or break its ability to oust the likes of Spotify, Rdio, and others?

Self driving cars are coming, but you might never own one.
The impact of self driving cars goes well beyond taking control of the steering wheel. More in the show notes: bit.ly/1T84mjd

Really enjoying the #AutomationParadox series on 99% Invisible. 🎧 Hoping they explore automation in our home and work.

Is there a way in OS X to force apps to use either wifi or ethernet instead of all traffic through one pipe? For example; email, connecting to servers, one browser and other internal functions connect over ethernet. Other browsers, social apps and the like connect via wifi.

Thanks +Trevor Jerue. Sorry, I am not trying to manage this within the apps I use, but setup systemwide settings. Will read the SuperUser thread.

I know Apple Music is a new service and app for us to get comfortable using, but at first use it seems overly complicated. Is it just me?

Right off the bat I am missing the what your friends are listening to feed found in +Rdio.

My initial gripes may be the result of bugs. I was creating playlists, but wasn't seeing them on other devices. This morning they are. 

The only other thing is having to add music to your library first before adding it to a playlist. That's an inconvenience, but hopefully an easy fix for a future update.

Happy Apple Music Day!
Remember to backup your iDevices prior to installing the iOS 8.4 update, which gives you access to free Apple Music preview.

New show on the Relay FM network! Material

BTW, how does a podcast focused on Google not have a G+ profile?
Looking at you +Andy Ihnatko, +Russell Ivanovic and +Yasmine Evjen. 
Material is a weekly discussion about the Google and Android universe. Every week, your intrepid hosts try to answer the question, “What holds up the digital world?” The answer, so far, is that it’s Google all the way down.

With today being Social Media Day I wanted to say thank you do my digital friends for educating, entertaining, informing and helping me on a daily – if not hourly – basis. We have built quite a community over the past nine plus years. These networks have already drastically changed the way our world communicates. For better or worse. Looking forward to where it will take us next. Thank you!

Sad, sad truth. iPhones sure are predictably nice, though-- no quirky wakelocks to steal my precious battery throughout the day.

Humanizing our digital world.
Introduction
Think of  me as a hybrid of a conductor and a translator. I organize creative teams to best accomplish a project. Then I speak in the native languages of web dev, design, photography, word smith, app dev and a little Wookie so the team knows how to best complete a project. Do not worry. I can translate all of their ideas into 'normal' human speak as well.

The Adventure Carolina guides were great once again. They were focused on everyone's safety while still keeping the day fun. We got to paddle at our own speed most of the time. No acts of heroism were required (injuries, alligators or people falling out of their boats) on our group's outing, but I am confident the two guides were prepared. Fair warning, you are likely to catch the kayaking bug after your tour.

I recently contacted this shop looking for the BLAKROC album on vinyl. While the other stores (3) around town only checked their physical inventory, Eric (learned the owners name via email exchanges) took the extra step and contacted his distributor to see if they could locate a copy of this 2009 album at that higher level. Even though we did not have any luck with that route either I was still impressed that they even made the inquiry. They will be my first call next time I am on the hunt for a piece. They get a five star rating for customer service!

Pawleys Front Porch is located in the Five Points area of Columbia, SC. The restaurant has been around for a few years (3 or 5). Their main draw are the hamburgers (~$10). Be sure to checkout their online menu. My favorite is the "Wadmalaw" burger or chicken sandwich. After being featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives it has become a "must-try" spot in town. Tourist and locals keep it packed during lunch. My advice; go early or wait until after 1pm. The porch is enjoyable nearly year round thanks to the Carolina weather. My beer geek buddies say the selection of brews is pretty good to, if you are into that sort of thing. Price: $$ Average visit: 50-60 minutes

Over the years I have been to Rockaway's a few times for lunch. The food is pretty good, but nothing to brag about. The reason we are not patrons more is because of the service. No quick lunch breaks here. Food takes some time to be prepared. You will be lucky to get out in under an hour. The waiter stop by the table a little as possible. Ration your drink. *Update: Things might be turing around for Rockaway's. Last week's visit was quick and the waitress was attentive.

A great trip back in time to my childhood. Atari, NES and N64 games surround the cashier. Looking over the titles caused me to regret parting ways with those old systems. They had a couple refurbished systems for sale, but I resisted spending entirely too much money. The staff was very knowledgable too. I spent most of my time in the store picking the brain of one guy and enjoying his stories. I was very impressed with the backstories on some of the more rare games. They also have a smaller board game section with new and classic games. I would highly recommend this store to anyone looking to rebuild their childhood game collection or perhaps find a loving home for those forgotten games in your attic.

When the office lunch crew cannot decide on a place to grab lunch I suggest Takosushi for the eclectic menu options. A little mexican. A little sushi. Be sure to look over the menu online before heading over. My typical order: bean & queso dip with chips and a bento box for lunch. Weird combination, but it works. The food is good and is prepared quickly. Service is typically really good. The lunch crowd does not overcrowd the restaurant, but the dinner/happy hour crowds take over. Not the cheapest place to grab lunch.
