Accessory Game: Carved cases

I liked my Carved 'Lunar Engraved' case some much I ended up buying one of their 'Satellite' series cases. What's cool is each one is one of a kind. They take reclaimed wood, stain it, and add a little resin for a splash of color. What I like is how unique they are, what I don't like is that this particular technique can eliminate being able to feel the wood grain, which I feel adds a lot of character to their other cases.

Feel free to check out their offerings at Carved.com

Finally, Spotify updates its iOS app to support the iPhone X. I posted a screenshot side by side comparison of the before and after. Looks like a small thing, but the black bars ruin the experience after experiencing apps that support the longer screen of the X. They still need an update to their UI and some other stuff, but this is a big step for iPhone X customers using the app. 🍾🥂

Exit stage left

I just can't with Apple's portrait stage lighting camera feature. It's equivalent to having a bucket full of hotdogs thrown at your face. Why, Apple? Not a reason to buy an iPhone, but not a reason not to buy one either. Just a waste of time. See for yourself...

Looks like +Kevin Tofel figured out a way to make a makeshift dark mode for his iPhone X. Looks decent too. I wonder why this isn't a thing already.

Reason not to rush

Don't rush, the developers are still playing catchup. The X is a great device, but you can see in the screenshot of the Spotify app that even major developers aren't taking advantage of the new screen dimensions. If you're like me that can be a little frustrating, because I have ridiculous standards for stuff like that. That's just my personality type. Anyway, the new UI is such a huge improvement I don't know if I could go back to Apple's previous approach. So I'm just going to move forward with the X. My other disappointment is how narrow the screen is. When developers take advantage of the new screen dimensions it's not a problem, but when you are reduced to that small region it's so disappointing to look at. In time this won't be an issue, but how long will that be. I can live with Face ID over Touch ID. If you asked me that 3 months ago I wouldn't have said that, but after experiencing using Face ID in bed in complete darkness I'm all good with Face ID. It just works.

True Story

It's been 10 years since the OG iPhone and the lines now look even worse than back then. I remember being in line at the Arden Fair Mall in Sacramento, back in 2007, just feeling like it's just a phone and wondering why people would wait like Russians waited for toilet paper during the Soviet Union era. I didn't get it. Me and my group had no plan to buy the iPhone because we were into our blackberrys, Treo 750, and Samsung blackjack. We were white collar ballers, so we couldn't see how having a touch screen could be more productive than our keyboards. We spent our days sending and receiving emails and felt touchscreen typing would require too much effort. So we started to make fun of people for waiting, mostly because we were arrogant immature A-holes at the time. Fast forward to today, not a lot has changed about us accepted we all eventually converted to being iPhone users. The point isn't that the iPhone is the greatest device or anything like that. The point it the lines are real and I shouldn't have been so critical regarding what people are willing to go through for what they want. To each their own, but it's really an accomplishment to drive consumers to purchase any product at these rates. Ultimately, Apple is doing something right and that's undeniably evident by these lines. Investigate, learn why, and try not to be arrogant immature A-holes like me and my buddies 10 years ago. 🍻

The strongest glass is still glass, at the end of the day. Be smart, be prepared, and get a damn case 😤
Well that was fast.

People already breaking their iPhones, hope they got their wallets ready.

Wasn't hard to get, so I only picked up 1. Probably won't show up early. Kinda disappointed in the process. Missing out of sleep for a preorder that ain't really a pre-anything. Basically paying to sit in line. #SheepLife
