Watching the Apple event last night, I was once again disappointed that the HomePod isn’t available in Norway.

No change with the HomePod mini.

Is it time to bite the bullet and just get it overseas?

New music out from Zeal & Ardor

This morning I woke up and saw an alert on my phone that there where a new song called “Tuskegee from Zeal & Ardor out on Apple Music.

The track itself is amazing. I’ve listened to it on repeat for the last hour.

I quickly found out that the track is from the upcoming EP Wake of a Nation.

And not only that, two more tracks “I can’t Breathe” and “Vigil” had also been released.

With lyrics like “I can’t breathe, it’s a cellphone, please don’t shoot” and “I need to get home, I’m on my knees begging please” I guess there is no prize for guessing the theme of this EP.

This is a strong contender for the best record of the year for me. Even though I’ve only heard three out of six songs of the EP.

WWDC 2020

The keynote this year surprised me. I didn't expect the prerecorded video to be as exiting as the live one.

But I liked this. It went by really quickly, going from one great announcement to the next, never dull.

I haven't forgotten the embarrassing Hey debacle and I hope that Apple will change some of their App Store policies.

Do I want an ARM Mac? Yes, yes I do.

I published my first post using iA Writer yesterday. The experience was good, although dedicated blog software it's not.

Not that I want it to be.

It made a title automatically, which I understand, but is something I rarely use. Since I tend to write shorter posts.

But overall a nice experience.

My editor of choice for markdown is iA Writer and has been for years.

When Manton posted that they added publishing I was thrilled.

Then I stopped posting for a while. You know, pandemic and all.

So this is my first post using iA Writer directly.

To think that you can create one solution that will look and work the same everywhere is a fantasy.

I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time… like tears in rain… Time to die.

As a developer I read so much more code than what I write.

So this from Brent Simmons is spot on:

…I’d write code the way I normally would, with clarity in mind first.
