Personally, I’m not overly stoked with TextExpander moving to a subscription model…I do understand why they’re doing it, but as a customer I’m not prepared to throw any more money at it, so I’m going to give aText a try.
I fully expect that some day in the future Apple will have an interface to it’s built-in text expansion in iOS, but until they bring that to the Mac and give us an interface to manage it, I need a simple solution and aText looks a likely candidate.
I’ll let you know how it goes after a couple of weeks of use!
The Verge have put together a nice Virtual Reality buyers guide, giving you the full spectrum from entry level through to the best commercially available headsets. If you’re new to this space, it’s worth a quick read.
…the whole point of going to Six Flags is to really, truly see the ground hundreds of feet below you — to get the closest possible simulation to flying in real space. I might as well go to a golf course and play Wii Golf on the fairway.
I actually thought it was a joke press release when I read that Six Flags was going to do this…apparently it’s not
Here’s a super quick recap on the progress I’ve made on my 2016 goals;
I’m now 3 books in, still no reviews
I’ve been to 2 movies now, Deadpool being the latest and OMG it was so good!
I’ve lost 12.8kg to date, 7.2kg to meet my goal for the year
Fitness wise I’ve not gotten into anything specific, however I am taking more stairs than elevators and averaging around 7000 steps a day
Still haven’t had a drink since New Year, I think I might try to crack 100 days
No progress on landscaping our yard
No travelling for anything but work so far
I’ve been to a ‘meet & greet’ at Trav’s school to meet his new teacher
The team’s all signed up, we start training on the 15th
Still waiting on the lounge to arrive, haven’t purchased anything else yet
Haha seriously no comment
This was never going to happen
As you can see, the health, wellness, and family stuff is still rocking along, everything else is still in a holding pattern. I’ve taken a deep dive into virtual reality of late, so any and all spare time I’ve had has been reading and messing around with various VR things, this is probably time I would’ve used for reading and writing.
At this stage the Happy Goggles Happy Meal box is only available in limited numbers in Sweden, but if it’s successful you’d have to guess McDonald’s will release these in other parts of the world. You can read more about this initiative on the Happy Goggles website.
I’m still playing around with the best way to shoot, edit, upload, and display these images captured from my Theta S 360 camera. New technology is fun to play with, but some times you’ve got to do a lot of the setup and testing yourself as there’s just not enough information out there on how to do all of this.
Once I work out a decent workflow I’ll share it with everyone.
Oh, and for the uninitiated, you can use your mouse, trackpad, or finger (for those on mobile) to move the photo around.
