    Life with an infant: Up for the day at 6am on Sunday because he’d rather be jumping in his bouncy chair contraption than sleeping.

        I spoke briefly with the guy at the kiosk. He must be an Apple follower because he called it "Force Touch" instead of "3D Touch".

          The 8GB 5c was available subsidized for $0 down, or for no-contract purchase. Under both models it was exactly the same cost as the 16GB 5s.

            Stopped at an AT&T reseller kiosk to see the rose gold iPhones. I was dismayed to find the 8GB 5c still available, at same price as 16GB 5s.

              I was wondering if our AT&T SIM'd iPhone 6s purchased outright via Apple would ship unlocked. It does, and iTunes says so during activation.

                Why can’t I pair a Bluetooth keyboard with Apple Watch? Apple is artificially differentiating to keep the Watch from cannibalizing iPad Pro!

                  It's gratifying to learn and accomplish new things: Today I wrote an 'expect' script to inventory our switch stacks in 100+ network closets.

                    Broke down and switched my Linode VPS to CentOS. Was always a Debian fan but we use CentOS heavily at work and familiarity counts for a lot.

                      One of the best tiny new things in iOS 9 is how Siri doesn't insist on making that ding sound even though your phone is set to vibrate only.

                        I know I can always ask AT&T to unlock a phone that is paid for. But curious if that'll be the case with the 6s bought outright from Apple.

                          Presently you must select a carrier when buying iPhone 6s even if paying full-price, no-commitment. Anyone know if they're factory unlocked?

                            I wasn't going to upgrade this year but a friend with dying phone offered to pay a fair price for my 6 Plus. So… eagerly awaiting a 6s Plus.

                                Our Apple caching servers moved ~700GB yesterday. Jeepers!

                                  Yesterday the collective bandwidth moved by our Apple caching servers equalled about 25% of our total Internet traffic. Not bad at all!

                                    iOS 9 will be the first major release since we added caching servers. Looking forward to seeing how much data they push in a day!

                                      It may take time some to get used to having something on my wrist though. I haven't worn any kind of watch since I was in elementary school.

                                        I'm sad to say the  Watch didn't really work out for my wife. But on the bright side this means I have a new gadget to play with!
