Wondering if it’s possible to get The Mavericks’ album Mono in stereo.

Of course, there are workarounds for everything. 😈

All I wanted was a Windows ISO to run a desktop VM for easy client software testing that doesn’t disrupt my local machine. Simple request, right? A common thing that’s done in IT shops all over the world. (In fact, numerous folks around me are assigned expensive Macs but have to perform most of their job functions in a Windows VM, but that’s another story). The ticket bounced around between no fewer than four different teams with the obligatory email vortex. And in the end, did I get the ISO? Nope.

On iOS being designed so that you don’t need to force quit apps:

An awful lot of very hard work went into making iOS work like this. It’s a huge technical advantage that iOS holds over Android. And every iPhone user in the world who habitually force quits background apps manually is wasting all of the effort that went into this while simultaneously wasting their own device’s battery life and making everything slower for themselves.

I think I’ve written about this before, but I’m too lazy to go look. It’s instinctual in those of us from the old Windows world (one person I know does it multiple times a day on her iPhone). Hardware back then was so limited and software hogged so much memory that we were constantly shutting down applications or killing them in Task Manager. (And don’t get me started on all of the pre-installed background software that was/is bundled with Windows and runs on startup). #oldhabits
