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.
I switched my chrispederick.com email from Google’s G Suite to FastMail and now that my personalized spam filter is active on FastMail I couldn’t be happier. Now I’m down to just one personal and one work Google account.
Bought one of the new 13″ MacBook Pros and I love it. I tried using only my Mac Mini and iPad Pro at home, but missed writing code on the couch. I’ve done more development in the past few days than I had in weeks and suspect going forward that my iPad Pro will be used much less.
