An heroic act

Done properly parenting is a heroic act. Done properly.

Falcon Heavy Binaural Audio Immersion

Put some good headphones on and enjoy.

112

112, our version of 911, just released an App that allows you to contact emergency services and immediately send them your location, name and contact information. Pretty useful in case of an emergency.

Update: Apparently, this is already part of iOS too via Emergency SOS, so not THAT useful, but better be safe than sorry I’d guess?

Older version of this post: Would be awesome if this could somehow be integrated with iOS 11’s Emergency SOS

How CloudKit Works

There’s a paper circulating online that explains on a deep technical level how CloudKit, the backend of modern iCloud, works. It’s insightful, albeit mostly way over my head.

Doesn’t really excite me that much. The poster art is nice though.

Star Wars Sphero

Stopping iPhone theft via JAMF

I wrote a guest post  for the JAMF Blog a couple of days ago on how we use JAMF to protect and track our devices if they’re stolen by combining JAMF, DEP and Lost Mode.

Restoring iCloud Data via iCloud.com

It appears Apple has added the option to iCloud which allows users to restore deleted iCloud data.. When you got to iCloud.com and look under the Settings Menu, there are now options to restore specific iCloud Drive files or an archive of your contacts or calendars for a specific date.
They even make an archive of your existing dataset so you can restore an older set, get the data you need and put the current one back:

  • The archive of calendars and reminders you select will replace the calendars and reminders on all your devices.
  • Your current Calendars and Reminders will be saved and archived as a separate version.

Pretty cool!

Jim Dalrymple on Apple Music part 2.

Let’s get the easy stuff out of the way. The missing and duplicate song issues that we’ve all seen in Apple Music are being fixed shortly. They are certainly aware of what’s been going on, I can assure you. – Jim Dalrymple.

It all just works. Sigh..
