I prefer swipe keyboards, and use gboard. I didn't realize that apple added swipe to the default keyboard. That's a big plus for me since time and again I have issues with gboard either not loading when it should be or not being an option at random times.

I'm also typing this on a touch screen keyboard that I just realized has it too. I was actually struggling to type until I just tried it. It's this a common feature now ?

Or you can be an old fogey like me and rock a physical keyboard in 2019.

Honestly, I like swipe more than I liked physical keyboards I felt like my thumbs bumped into each other, and it's easier to type one handed with swipe.

Where's the fun in that when you can take your chances with a London-based startup because it's literally the only slider to come out in almost four years.

Touché. Putting all your faith in startups is the most exciting way to live. Just ask SoftBank.

Though I'm honestly surprised the demand is that low.

There is still interest, it's just that attempts to cater to that demand have either been halfhearted (see phones like the LG mach) or incompetently handled (The Blackberry Priv falls in that category).

AirPods Pro shipping 10/30 for $249.

For BNM

I recently lost my last Bluetooth headphones from SoundPEATS and bought a new pair from Anker. I spent about $40 on them (vs $22 for the old pair). They get the job done. There’s just no f-ing way I’m dropping $249 on headphones considering my clumsiness and propensity for losing things.

Yeah, unless it's some $20 thing that i can take with me, I want a full headset. It's less likely to get lost, it probably has better sound quality than the airpods*, and I can get features like an option for a 3.5mm connection that Apple can only dream of.

*This of course is ignoring the possibility that Apple is really digging into some dark magic when it comes to sound quality on the airpods.

I get it, and I do have decent noise canceling, over the ear headphones that I use at home (TaoTronics, on sale for $40). For the gym, I’m not going to be that guy.

I like my current airpods. Haven't lost them yet. But $250 is just way too much. The sound quality in the current model is ok, and the main feature they're touting is the noise cancellation and waterproofing? I'd need more emphasis on sound quality from the marketing. Also marketing above "it's available now!".

I have an Apple power adapter and Lightning to USB-C cable. I was charging my iPhone then unplugged the cable and immediately plugged it into my iPad. The following message pop-up appears on my IPad:

“This accessory may not be supported.”

I eventually got it to work. That’s... really f-ing stupid though.

Yeah, the plugs and cables are all universal. . .until they're not.  There could be some dust and debris in the port though.  That happened to one of phones before and I just had to clean it out.

Due to a combination of some leftover Christmas money and an Amazon sale, I finally broke down and bought AirPods. So far I like them, particularly how well they're integrated with the system. I'd had some cheap generic bluetooth headphones before and I love how these just automatically kick in when I put them in.
I'm kind of a snarky bastard.
