My phone is always on silent
A few years ago I decided I was going to control my phone, and not the other way around.
At the time, I set my default notification sound to silence, along with the default text tone and ringtone.
(Ringtone was a pain, there isn’t a silent option but it was easy to make a silent ringtone in Garageband).
Certain contacts did get a tone, but for the most part, my phone did not interrupt my day.
Now it appears that some people can’t handle that.
I feel sorry for these people that believe they have to see every notification as it comes in.
If you message me, don’t worry, I’ll see it.
But it will be on my time.
My 2010 MacBook Pro still has some life left in it
Ars Technica collected data on how long Macs get updates.
I agree that it is becoming a problem.
My 2010 Macbook Pro has 16GB of RAM and an SSD, but the latest macOS it can run is 10.13.
In the next few years I’ll have to switch to Linux or Windows, but even Windows is getting into the game.
My desktop is 5 years old this September, but it cannot run Windows 11.
Linux is looking pretty good right now.
