I pulled the trigger on a Pro Display XDR. It’s amazing for photo and video editing, of course. But what made it worth every penny is being able to view 3 full size code panels in Xcode while still showing both toolbars.
Blows my mind that you can buy a 16TB disk for just over $300 these days. The internal mechanism is a 7200 RPM enterprise class Exos X16 to boot.
I talk about switching from a dual desktop/laptop setup to a single 16” MacBook Pro for app development in my latest video.
Shout out to hardware from
Sonnet Technologies, Promise, and CalDigit for making the transition easier.
Finished importing 584GB of video for a project. Had three cameras going, plus separate audio from an external mic attached to my iPhone.
Can’t say I’ve ever seen two NSAutoresizingMaskLayoutConstraints colliding with each other. This should be an interesting bug to work through.
Taking some time to enjoy a peaceful summer day in #PureMichigan.
I went out a couple of nights to view the Neowise comet. Here’s one of the better shots I came home with.
Used a 5D Mark IV and a 70-200 f2.8L II. 5 second exposure at f2.8, 70mm, ISO 10000.
After adding a second Mac mini to my homelab, I wanted an enclosure that would keep them secure. The last thing I need is for one of them to fall off a shelf.
I decided to go for the
MacRack mini from Sonnet. Here’s a video unboxing and review:
Just finished renaming 1.5 million weather observation data files from epoch to YYYYmmddHHMMSS date format.
Took a couple of days intermittently and some bash and Perl code to get the job done.
The DTK arrived this morning… So this is what it’d be like if an iPad Pro ran macOS.
First step: getting XRG going.
Now that WWDC is over (kudos to everyone at Apple!), we can now return to our regularly scheduled political posts.
I just posted a video discussing my thoughts on this week’s WWDC announcements including macOS 11, Catalyst, SwiftUI, and Apple Silicon.
Check it out:
If you have an app that uses UISplitView on iPad, you owe it to yourself to check out the new functionality in iOS 14 and watch the Build for iPad session.
OMG! splitViewController.setViewController(vc, for: .compact)
Also joined the micro.blog meetup this afternoon. Wish it could have been a proper lunch with great discussion, but it was still nice to see everyone even though we have a virtual WWDC.
Watched 13 #WWDC20 videos today and I feel completely spent. So much great content though!
Wow… My DTK application was accepted and some sweet Apple Silicon is on it’s way.
Guess I’ll plan to check out Big Sur tomorrow…
Lots of great improvements to SwiftUI this year. A lot of the pain points look to be addressed, and the option to define even the App controller in SwiftUI is a huge win.
I plan to use it as much as possible moving forward. #WWDC20
