Measuring my desk area for a hypothetical iMac and sit stand desk setup. Wish there were more 5K monitor options – Dislike the idea of having a gorgeous monitor I can’t use with a work laptop, but also don’t want a Mac Mini. Hopefully a new iMac has display pass through again.

Two years ago, I pulled 10 years of historical weather data for this day. And what a beautiful day it is.

Can someone remind me why Maryland has a presidential primary?

Did The Good Place deliver the best closing of TV history? Potentially.

I will forever loath waiting in LINE for a online concert ticket… When can I start to line up?! It comes at no cost of time or attention, its so stupid.

I’m seeing the Phosphate Inline font everywhere lately. Not against it since I have chosen it before too.

Where are HairPods?

While listening to episode 280 of Upgrade on vacation, I think I figured out why we still haven’t seen an Apple branded over ear headphone while Beats has released what many would assume the technological equivalent.

My hunch is that Apple wants to make a statement about these studio grade headphones and that technology isn’t ready yet. Latency.

As someone who edits audio using AirPods and AirPods Pro regularly, I can tell you the latency, while improving, isn’t ideal for most of the podcast editing I do. That said, it is not that big of a deal and the conveniences of AirPods make it worth it. However with professional music applications and studios where mobility isn’t a primary concern, the technology isn’t there yet.

I think when Apple does release an over the ear headphone, they will embrace its ability to be used in professional studio applications because of a latency breakthrough.
