Soooo… We Were Trying To Cut Down Our Screen Time Before This Happened. How’s It Going?

Covered in screens these past few weeks, I have noticed some positive changes. I FaceTime my friends so much that I know them better than I did before. I decided to learn what TikTok was, and I love it. I spend hours with my chin tucked into my chest and a weird smile on my face, watching. I’m using Duolingo, an app to learn languages. – The New York Times

Chargers coach Anthony Lynn keeping options open at QB, left tackle

Chargers coach Anthony Lynn expressed some disappointment about his post-free-agency news conference not being on Zoom, the increasingly popular video conferencing program. “I’m just surprised we didn’t Zoom so we can see each other’s faces,” Lynn jokingly said Wednesday to start the phone call conference. “It’s been so long. … Maybe next time.” Lynn has become familiar with Zoom, just like the much of the NFL has the past few weeks because of the restrictions that were implemented to avoid coro...

3 Monate Bettruhe: Diese Dinge haben mir geholfen, nicht verrückt zu werden

An dem Tag, an dem mein Leben auf Eis gelegt wurde, war ich gerade im fünften Monat schwanger. Ich rannte quer durch das Krankenhaus, weil eine Routineuntersuchung anstand und ich ein bisschen zu spät dran war. Mir war unglaublich heiß – zum Teil wegen der Schwangerschaft, aber hauptsächlich, weil ich kniehohe Wildlederboots von Stuart Weitzman trug – ein neues Paar, das ich mir gegönnt hatte, um meiner sehr limitierten Schwangerschaftsgarderobe ein kleines Upgrade zu verpassen. Nach dem Ultrasc...

Maybe we shouldn’t use Zoom after all

Now that we’re all stuck at home thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, video calls have gone from a novelty to a necessity. Zoom, the popular videoconferencing service, seems to be doing better than most and has quickly become one of, if not the most, popular option going. But should it be? Zoom’s recent popularity has also shone a spotlight on the company’s security protections and privacy promises. Just today, The Intercept reported that Zoom video calls are not end-to-end encrypted, despite ...

Apple Reportedly Plans to Seed First Beta of iOS 13.4.1 in the Coming Days

Apple plans to release the first beta of iOS 13.4.1 with bug fixes in the coming days, according to Israeli website The Verifier, which has a mixed track record. The report also suggests that there will not be an iOS 13.5 update this year, which would not be too surprising, as Apple has never released a point-five iOS version like iOS 12.5 or iOS 11.5 in previous years. Instead, Apple apparently has three more bug fix updates planned for iOS 13, with a max version number of iOS 13.4.4 expected....

Church Online Or Online Church Is More Than Streaming

I’ve been a little a little worried about people / churches mistaking streaming worship and preaching / teaching for church. Streaming a service, sermon or worship isn’t necessarily church.
