Do any Micro.bloggers have any suggestions for a good iOS guided meditation app for beginners? There are so many to choose from.

I’m happy that the Accidental Tech Podcast hosts got invited to the Apple Mac and iPad event, and that @marco got a couple of review units, too. I have enjoyed ATP’s last two episodes all the more because of it.

Chrome (on Windows 10) does not take that long to load, but it takes long enough for me to forget why I launched it by the time it opens.

My employer is changing its email retention policy to discourage employees from keeping email forever, and focusing on its use as a communication tool rather than an historical archive. I have been waiting for 20 years for such a thing to occur.

I am excited to go vote today. My wife and I made a voting plan and everything. Thankfully it is not that hard for us to vote where we live.

🕹 I have been playing a lot of Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey the past couple weeks. I am very glad I bought them. It’s good to have escapist fun for a change.

I bought a “fast” lens for my micro 4/3 camera to take pictures of my kids indoors, where the light is not good. I have gotten some great shots, but I have concluded, after about a month of shooting, that what I really need is a TTL flash that I can bounce off the ceiling.

I have not been looking at polls, because I don’t want to drive myself crazy, but I am really nervous about voter turnout for next week’s midterm election. I have a vague dread that Democrats will, once again, not vote in large enough numbers to help un-f*** this country.

Halloween with the wife and kids was fun. It was unusually warm and we didn’t have many trick-or-treaters in our neighborhood this year.

This article, about an actor’s family finding an apartment as they move to NYC, is kind of depressing. It’s unreasonably expensive to live in the city. If I were in his position, I would probably try to live outside the city a little ways.

Is anyone else hearing the distorted Halloween echo whenever Tim Cook is speaking at the Apple iPad Pro event?

🎵 I do not listen to nearly enough Neko Case. For the first time in forever, I just spun up her 2002 album, Blacklisted, with its electric lead track: “Things that Scare Me”.
