One of the best benefits of working from home on a snow day is having Ollie come into my office and tell me “I went potty in the potty and now I can have gummy bears”.

Hey Siri on AirPods

Mark Gurman at Bloomberg:

The model coming as early as this year will let people summon Apple’s Siri digital assistant without physically tapping the headphones by saying “Hey Siri.” The function will work similarly to how a user activates Siri on an iPhone or a HomePod speaker hands-free.

I would live this addition. I currently have the double-tap feature on my AirPods set to play/pause because that is way more useful at out open office at work. Having Hey Siri would give me the best of both worlds.

I was considering buying the new charging case for my current set when the AirPower mat is finally released, but now I think I will just wait for the new version of AirPods.

Alto’s Odyssey

Alto’s Odyssey, the followup to the great Alto’s Adventure, was released on the App Store this morning. Alto’s Adventure was probably my favorite iOS game I have ever played. In my few minutes of playing Odyssey this morning, it looks to be a worthy successor. I do miss the lamas though.

Federico Viticci has a great review over at MacStories.

Amazon Prime has every episode of  Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood! I know what Ollie is going to start watching tomorrow!

When you lose your Apple Pencil cap… (47/365)

Carissa and I are starting The Good Place tonight. I feel like there is no way it can live up to the high expectations that everyone on the internet has set for it.

Date night. (45/365)

Today is a good day to listen to the canonical Valentine’s Day song.

I spend about 90% of my time developing for the Apple Watch just waiting for the app to transfer to the device. Half the time I forgot what I was testing by the time it gets there.
