I captioned my best nine of 2019 with “An incredible year of travel in 2019. Let’s keep this going in 2020!”. So I’m sorry for jinxing it and won’t make the mistake of offering any predictions for 2021 this time

I’ve finally worked out why voicemail transcription has never worked on my iPhone: I had my Siri language set to English (UK). Voicemail transcription starts working when I change it to English (US). Time to Americanize after living here for twenty years I guess 😀

I installed the iOS 13 beta on my iPad to test it out, but was planning on waiting to update my iPhone. However, I edited a shortcut on my iPad and now it won’t work on my phone unless I upgrade. I might have to pull the trigger on updating there as well now 😬

Just had my first Impossible Burger at the Gott’s in SFO and I have to say that it was really good! If I didn’t know, I wouldn’t have guessed that it wasn’t a “real” burger.

I’m in the middle of the Amazon rainforest with WiFi only via satellite and my phone in airplane mode…and I’m still getting spam calls! 🙄

Last night I reduced the number of podcasts I’m subscribed to from 34 to 15. I’m hoping to replace the repetitive tech discussions with a combination of audiobooks and Pocket’s listen feature.

Pocket Casts adding support for AirPlay 2 is making me consider switching back to using it as my podcast app since I AirPlay to my HomePod all the time. It makes a huge difference not having a streaming delay.

I just packed up my iPhone X to send back to Apple having upgraded to the iPhone XS Max and it already feels small to me. It’s amazing how quickly that happens and I just get used to the larger phone.
