so a few days ago i vented about issue i was having that for some reason apple music on my iPhone had started randomly taking over car bluetooth connection, playing songs from a U2 album i didn’t buy. at the time i lamented that it was the lamest product/brand experience i’ve ever had with apple. “stop trying to shove apple music down my throat. maddening”. responses from twitter, Facebook and email suggested i was not alone. a few google searches later and i discovered i was discovered i very much not alone. the fix suggestions are summarized in “how to stop the Music app from auto-playing in your car”. #2 is “turn off auto-play in your car, if possible”. okaaaaaaay.
hmmmm, i had no idea there was an autoplay option. so i went looking and it turns out there is! we’ve had the car for longer than the iPhone and i don’t have an explanation for how/why it suddenly it started auto-playing ( did odin mess with the settings? )?
either way i can’t believe there’s way to configure autoplay on the iOS side. really, apple? i’m sure it’s not a coincidence that it defaults to autoplay apple music. i’m glad volkswagen gives me a way to turn it off in lieu of ability to control it on the device side.
surprised to see we already have an apple on the transparent apple tree we just planted last fall. also bummed to see we have mysterious rusty red splotches on the leaves. can any apple tree experts identify?
no peaches but we’ve got a billion cherries coming and a few blossoms on a transparent apple tree that we just planted last fall. i don’t expect too get much if any fruit, but maybe next year!
it’s supposed to be a dwarf but it’s already 7 feet tall?!
fermentin’ away. first time we’ve tried making it. not sure who is going to be guinea pig and be the first to try 🙂
odin walked up to his mother and handed her this piece of paper. “what’s this?” she asks. odin replied, “here’s where we can get a good computer.” kris asked him how on earth he learned you could get a good computer at the west town mall 76 miles from viroqua.
“siri told me!”
turns out, he overheard me asking kris if she had played around with siri on her ipad and asked her any questions. somehow odin figured out how to ask her a question and his first – telling – question was where to get a good computer ( i.e. where might we be able to get him a good computer ) 🙂
of course, siri is a bit biased and directed him to the apple store at the west towne mall in madison.
i always assumed apple product shots were digitally rendered on a computer, but it turns out at least some of them are textbook examples of focus stacking.
