Is “being angry on the internet” a career option now?
Of course they do. Of course they do.
Morph appears on my desk.
I jump around platforms a lot. Lots of days, I end up using Windows, MacOS, ChromeOS, and of course iOS. There’s only one ecosystem I can use that actually plays nicely with everything, and guess what? It’s Microsoft’s.

If you’re not reading Julia Armfield’s Salt Slow, you should be.
Typically, I bought some Surface Headphones despite reading all the slightly “meh” reviews. And guess what? I was right - they’re really, really good. The sound is better than my old Bose, the mics are exceptional, and they’re incredibly comfortable to wear.
There’s a couple of really nice small updates in iOS 13 listed here. www.youtube.com/watch
