Per this article today, be sure to say “Alexa, thank my driver” to your echo device and your driver will get a $5 tip.
The new thank you feature is part of a promotion that Amazon says it’s running to celebrate its impending milestone of 15 billion packages delivered. If a driver is one of the first one million to receive a thank you, they get $5. The five
This isn’t a sales pitch. This isn’t for an affiliate referral kickback. I have nothing to do with this company. I paid full price with my own dinero. This is to help the Internet. No strings. Want to save $100? Read on!
I recently decided to try and make the switch from editing my video projects in Apple’s Final Cut Pro X (FCPX) to the very popular alternative, Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve Studio. I’ve used FCPX to edit over 100 episodes of my TV show, Motorz, plus over 40 episodes of Tool Talk and countless other projects over the past 15+ years.
I had high hopes that Apple’s Final Cut Pro X ... (more)
If you own a Peloton Bike or Bike+, you know that the standard water bottle holders are pretty flimsy and don’t accommodate large water bottles very well. Enter the TrubliFit Extra Large Bottle Holders – designed specifically to hold larger water bottles on the Peloton Bike. I bought one to hold my 40oz Hydroflask water battle, and here’s my review.
First impressions upon unboxing were good – the bottle holders ... (more)
I noticed the new iPhone 14 emergency SOS capability was enabled on my phone this morning. I went outside and tested it and it connected quickly. Very impressed! Now if I ever get lost in the woods (Samantha?) I can test it out for real! This is truly amazing and is going to be saving a lot of lives…
This is incredible and is a must watch if you’re a huge fan of the movie like I am!
A few days ago Google introduced YouTube handles: “a new way for people to easily find and engage with creators and each other on YouTube.” If you have a YouTube channel, you can get yours by going to youtube.com/handle.
At the time, I wasn’t able to grab mine. Hoping that I would get my invitation soon to secure mine, I waited for the email–which arrived this morning. My ... (more)
I finally started watching Star Wars: Andor with my daughter. We’ve both been busy and now there are 5 episodes to watch! We just finished watching the first episode and we’re both confused as hell as to what’s going on. Hopefully it will come together. Pew-pew!
It’s Friday! Fritog! Yay! Just got a haircut… it’s amazing how good it feels to have my hair cut short. I would love to get it cut every 2 weeks but it’s more like every 3-5. A few more hours before the weekend. Looking forward to 2 days of no work and a few cervezas 🍻
The Internet is losing their Stranger Things shit because of this Halloween display in Plainfield, Illinois. Dave & Aubrey Appel created a floating Max Mayfield in their front yard, paying homage to the 4th season of the Netflix hit. But nobody will say how it’s done. They aren’t saying… yet. So if you’re dying to know how I think they did it, read on.
Watch the video again and you’ll ... (more)
If you’re a fan of Tim Allen’s “The Santa Clause” movies like my family and I are, you’ll be looking forward to the upcoming “The Santa Clauses” coming November 16th on Disney+. For the record, of the first 3 movies, the first one (1994) is the absolute best. We watch it every year. The 2nd (2002) is decent and the 3rd one (2006) is skippable. Hopefully this 6-episode mini-series will ... (more)
Hopper as Santa. It’s time for some seasons beatings! 🎅🎄
Seriously, you should watch this even if you have zero interest in Wrigley Field and baseball. It’s mind-blowing… 🤯
For the past few years, Apple has been making its west coast customers wake up at 5am to pre-order their latest iPhone. I learned my lesson a few years back not to wait until I wake up later because then you can’t get the phone you want on launch day. Then you’re stuck monitoring inventory at your local stores, rushing down to a store in hopes to get the size ... (more)
My quick takes on the Sept 7 “Far Out” Apple Event:
Apple Watch Series 8 (40 mins): No visual design changes and no reason to upgrade from S7. S8 improves by adding crash detection and a temperature sensor. It’s clear they spent little time on improving S8 and much more time on the new $799 titanium Ultra edition which is rugged and definitely not for most people. I also love ... (more)
Here are my suggestions (that I’ve personally tried) on how to waterproof your non-waterproof sensors.
A quick caveat: I live in SoCal where there tends to be a lot more sun than rain. If you live in a colder, wetter ... (more)
I took over pool service after 22 years of having someone else do it. After investing the time in figuring out the pool chemistry it’s actually really easy and I enjoy the breaks from work to rake the pool and test the water. It’s very zen at times. Plus it’s nice to get outside!
