Apple TV Remote App Inspired Steve Jobs to Make Original Siri Remote

Last week Apple removed the Apple TV Remote app from the App Store, given that the app's functionality has been baked into the Control Center on iPhone and iPad since iOS 11. Following the Remote app's discontinuation, a former Apple engineer took to Twitter to share some interesting details about the app's original development. Alan Cannistraro writes that he began writing the app in 2006 before he even saw the first ‌iPhone‌ user interface, and instead used his own UI elements to begin wit...

I Voted for the First Time Ever

I mailed in my ballot on Friday. This is the first political election I’ve ever participated in. Here’s the first question filled out (not a difficult one): Voting for Biden / Harris for President was the only sane option given how hideous the other candidates are. You may not even recognize two of the candidates on the list since they’re running with much smaller parties, and they’re far from popular – for good reason I’d say. Don Blankenship is a former coal company CEO who s...

The Point of No Return

In Act 1 of a story with a 3-act structure, the protagonist often reaches the point of no return. Their old world crumbles, and they stumble forward into a new world, often reactively at first. There is no going back to the old world. In a novel or movie, there may be multiple progressive points of no return, each creating a deeper level of commitment and increasing the protagonist’s risk as well. Once Neo takes the red pill in The Matrix, he can’t go back to his old life. The old reality ...

To Ice Fish or Not to Ice Fish? That Is the Question.

 The cold through Tuesday should have Platte Lake locked-up tight with possibly Bulldog and Rock being safe to fish as well.  I'm definitely thinking about getting out on October ice if it's safe. I've already snow blown the driveway, so why not. Not sure that the Expedition will be up to get me out though. Maybe I'll trade cars with Steve.Thankfully it doesn't look like the Jetty is going to be ice-covered. So hopefully I'll be fishing out there next week after we get out from beneath the fre...

James Bradley Comes Back

James writes: Steve Pearson says growth is one of the metrics we should pay attention to, like profit in a business. I agree with that and I said as much. What doesn’t work is to have it be the mission statement, or the primary basis for compensating the executive director.Growth isn’t a purpose. Profit isn’t a purpose. Wills Wing doesn’t do what it does to make a profit. It has to make a profit to stay in business but profit isn't why Steve gets out of bed in the mornin...

Capturing Story Ideas

On my novel writing journey, I’m starting out by capturing ideas, which are plentiful. I find that committing to a project summons a flood of ideas, and this one is no different in that sense. When I say a firm yes, reality says: Great… let’s unlock that idea space for you. The ideas have been flooding my mind frequently – when I wake up in the morning, while eating, while running, and even while blogging. At any time I might be struck by an idea for a character, scene, location, plot twist, ...

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Censors “Phallic” Win Screen for Minecraft’s Steve

Nintendo has once again responded to the deranged masses as Super Smash Bros. Ultimate had its win screen for playable character Steve (of Minecraft) altered, taking away his precious meat as several individuals believed it looked like a misshapen penis. The change was said to have taken place in the recent 9.0.1 version update for […]

AI and Character Design

One thing I have to do ASAP for my novel writing project is to figure out some character and plot ideas. I don’t already have a story in mind, and I haven’t figured out any characters. I haven’t even picked a genre, so I’m really starting from scratch here. I’d love to have at least a basic sketch of what kind of story I’m going to write by November 1st when NaNoWriMo officially starts. I can lean on past role-playing experience to help with some details of character design, but I also prefer...

NaNoWriMo Tips

A couple of days ago, I searched for NaNoWriMo tips from people who’ve done it before. I especially looked for lessons that people discovered by contrasting their own failures versus successes with NaNoWriMo. I compiled a short list of the most interesting tips as reminders for myself, so I thought I’d share this list with you in today’s post. I’m sure you can generalize some of these ideas to improve your ability to succeed with other short-term challenges as well. Just write. Don’t do ed...

Prepping for NaNoWriMo

I spent some time today learning more about NaNoWriMo, including sifting through their member forums looking for beginner tips and suggestions. Fortunately there’s a ton of advice from other writers who’ve done NaNoWriMo many times before. I was curious how many people who sign up for NanoWriMo each year actually succeed at writing at least 50,000 words during the month of November. The completion percentage is different each year, but it seems to average around 15%. That lands within my expe...

Peter Frampton talks new memoir ahead of Cameron Crowe virtual event at LA’s Book Soup

For Peter Frampton, the idea of a memoir was always on his list of things to do, but never today, not this year, that’s for the future. Frampton definitely had stories to tell just from his youth on the outskirts of London: He was friends with David Jones (soon to be known to the world as David Bowie); his teenage rock band was produced by Bill Wyman of the Rolling Stones; he played in another teen band that toured with The Who. And the stories kept coming: When he was 18, he joined Steve Marrio...

NaNoWriMo 2020

As I’ve shared previously, one of my goals for this year is to write a novel. I’ve never done that before. It’s been a stretch goal of mine for a long time, and I’ve decided the time has come to finally do it. To move this goal forward in a more concrete way, I signed up for NaNoWriMo on Friday. NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month, and it happens every year in the month of November. I’ve been aware of it for years, but this is the first time I’ve ever signed up for it. If you...

Universal Timing Alignment

I’ve noticed that when I get an idea for a big new project, the timing often doesn’t feel good right away. It’s as if the idea wants to get my attention, so I can start thinking about it, but it also needs time to incubate. If I try to force the idea forward faster, it’s like pushing through molasses. It takes lots of discipline, and I have to forcefully re-engage with the task again and again. The inspiration to move it forward isn’t present. These projects don’t succeed. If they ever get co...

Problems You Only Need to Solve Once

If you have a recurring problem and you can reasonably expect it to recur, solve the problem once. Really solve it. Document your solution. Then run your solution each time the problem occurs. This form of process documentation is common in business. I recommend you use it in your personal life as well. Here are some examples of problems you can solve just once: Do you get up right away when your alarm goes off in the morning without ever using the snooze button?If you’re feeling anxiou...

That time The Cramps appeared on Beverly Hills, 90210

In 1995, The Cramps had a cameo on a Halloween episode of Beverly Hills, 90210. Lux and Ivy were the party band at Kelly, Dylan, Steve, and the gang's favorite haunt: the Peach Pit After Dark. For context, here's an IMDB contributor's summary of the episode, titled "Gypsies, Cramps and Fleas": At a Halloween party at the Peach Pit After Dark, a mysterious gypsy named Madame Raven shows up, in which David buys a love potion from her to increase his growing relationship with Valerie...

Curiosity Goals

Maybe you have some goals for accomplishments you’d like to experience and enjoy. That’s great. Just be aware that you can also set goals for outcomes and experiences that you don’t even know if you’ll like. One of my current goals is to be able to walk 80 steps at a normal walking pace while comfortably holding my breath. That’s after exhaling and with only relaxed and shallow nose-breathing beforehand, not while holding in a deep breath. I started working on this goal last week, and current...

Steve Pearson on Tiki and James

Steve writes: I would characterize James' response to Tiki as somewhat misleading by suggesting that "in a combined last priority, at gender and age" are not a significant factor. As I recall, Tiki had the second highest number of votes and was eliminated by the age requirement. Can anyone tell me why age is an essential diversity requirement and while race is not? My personal opinion is that the diversity algorithm should be limited region and wing type.James also questions Tiki's ability ...

Smash Bros. Ultimate Players Lamenting Minecraft Steve’s Blocky Persistence

Japanese individuals playing against the newly added Steve from Minecraft in Super Smash Brothers Ultimate have been astounded by his power, even uploading videos to demonstrate the strength of the character and his ability to “edge guard”.

Remembering When Captain America Fell on That Grenade – and Created the Soul of the Marvel Cinematic Universe

(Welcome to Great Moments in MCU History, where we fondly recall great little bits that made us fall in love with the MCU.) After all these years, it’s fun to look back at early Marvel Cinematic Universe efforts. They’re all so quaint in retrospect, so tiny. Thor loses his hammer and has to fight a big metal guy who breathes fire. (Yes, I know he’s called the Destroyer, but he destroys little more than a block of New Mexico’s smallest town). Tony Stark makes his suit, flies around a bit, and...

Resolving the Unresolved

Sometimes people don’t look at certain dark corners of their lives because they either want to keep their options open or they don’t want to “collapse the wave function” to a negative outcome. For instance, suppose you’re in a relationship and you suspect that your partner is secretly cheating on you. Or suppose you have a job and want a promotion, and you’re worried that your boss has already excluded you from consideration. Maybe you figure that looking for the truth is worse than not knowi...

Redefining Your Roles

You have many roles to play in life, such as various job to perform, being someone’s relationship partner, and being a a personal growth explorer. That there may be gaps, however, in the roles you identify, and you may want to devise a new role to cover a gap. Look especially for areas where you’ve been procrastinating or getting weaker results than you’d like. Do you have an appropriate role for that area? Have you chosen a suitable label for the role that you like? Identity Encourage...

Trump Economic Adviser Joined In On Panning POTUS’ ‘Crappy’ Debate Performance

Trump economic adviser Stephen Moore conceded that President Trump’s performance was “crappy” during the debate he hijacked against Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden earlier this month. HuffPost first reported on the comments late Monday. While speaking to a crowd on Oct. 2 for the “Election Protection Summit” by the Trump-supporting FreedomWorks nonprofit organization, Moore is seen in a video griping about Trump’s disastrous debate performance, which was obtained by Wisconsin watchdo...

Upselling: find additional business in existing accounts

Many years ago, just as technology was becoming ubiquitous, I closed $6,400,000 worth of business in the sales reps’ long-term accounts during the real-time call portion of my Buying Facilitation® training with IBM. This particular group had had their accounts for 3 years on average and knew their clients quite well…. Or so they thought. The funny/sad thing was that I had no specific details about what I was selling, and I certainly had no relationship with the clients I spoke with. But not onl...

Redefining Your Problems

By looking at a problem from multiple angles, you may spot a creative solution you hadn’t considered before. But another approach is to reframe the way you define the problem to begin with. For example, suppose you define your problem as how to get a new job during COVID times. Within that problem definition, you can consider many ways to solve the problem. You could work on your resume, look through job postings, fill out applications, ask around to discover unadvertised jobs, and take plent...

Nose Breathing During Exercise

I’ve continued practicing the exercises from The Oxygen Advantage for the past several days, and this morning I hit a nice exercise-related milestone. I decided to take the past two days off from running. Instead I went for walks and practiced reducing my breathing while also doing some breath holds. I figured that some extra practice on the breathing side could be helpful. This morning I went back to running, figuring I’d continue the interval approach. I decided that if I was going to do...
