There was a village in Africa so remote that they had no electricity or electronics of any kind. As an experiment the OLPC people left a pallet of the devices in the village with no guidance, training or even explanation. Within minutes the kids of the village, who had never seen so much as a light switch, had the…
AMD and Microsoft have both been VERY tricky with how they frame this guy (comparing the battery life only to the 13-inch counterpart and not other 15-inch competitors). I wanted to look at it versus some 15-inch but I don’t have any U-series 15 inch products I’ve tested lately. They’d absolutely do better, but they’d… Read more
As someone new to iOS (from Android), this frustrates me to no end. I have Google Play Music, Spotify, Apple Music and Pocketcasts installed and it chooses one of those (doesn’t like YT Music for some reason). I have this issue everywhere - when I’m at the gym and pause wireless headphones to talk to someone, get in… Read more
But also, I wish there was a way to tell the OS to just not automatically play anything when connecting. I have half a dozen apps that play audio. Stop assuming you know which one I want. I’ll just start the one I want.
Thank you for saying what has been a big complaint of mine for quite some time. Often, I will listen to Pandora when out to grab lunch and then if I make a phone call, it will not automatically resume with Pandora and if I hit the play button on the phone or my headphones, it plays a random song from my itunes… Read more
I’d trade it all for better performance when you’re in the car with no CarPlay. Ever been using a map and get a call? Only takes 3 physical clicks of the home button to get back to the map, and forget about it if you have Face ID.
Not just podcasts. On my iPod it seems to be unable to remember anything it's been playing. Let alone where I stopped it.
This has annoyed me for years. I just want the ability to disable the music autoplay in my car. Acura says it’s an Apple issue, Apple says it’s an Acura issue. I play something in the house. Get in the car and plug the phone it, and it starts to play the first song it finds alphabetically - regardless of what was… Read more
I straight up deleted my Music app in hopes that it’d stop interrupting me when I try to pause a podcast or youtube video. Instead now all I get is silence (which I guess is better than some song blaring when all you want to do is pause)
That first one drives me nuts too.
This, but for me it’s wildly inconsistent. 90% of the time Spotify will pickup where it left off, but occasionally music from iTunes will play. And for no rhyme or reason. The only hypothesis I have is sometimes Spotify will update or be closed in the background, and as soon as my car connects my phone just defaults… Read more
Something about these have always felt like good 30 dollar games. They're not bad, just a bit middling and monotonous toward the middle.
