The Gang or a subset did a Clubhouse, longer than a regular show by a good third. The audio only structure lacked the visual cues that distinguish between irony and bad manners, but otherwise it felt familiar if not comfortable. I can’t remember what we talked about, only that I seemed a little more emphatic […]

Are companies really going to repatriate their cloud workloads? Probably not. But it's clear enterprises are rethinking what workloads they keep on-premises. Edge computing, multicloud and hybrid cloud all complicate things.
Somewhere along the way my goals shrank. During the destabilizing and most isolating months of the pandemic, my desires shifted entirely. Professional ambitions, for instance — sweeping, difficult, long-term things — washed away, and were replaced with smaller things under my control: taking a walk, calling my friend, meditating for, like, five minutes maybe.
I wasn't alone. The more I looked, the more I saw it. Last year, and some of 2021, felt like years nearly void of ambition, at least of how we typically think of it.
Whatever your worldview is, it was rocked by the pandemic. It was impossible to avoid. Read more...More about Mental Health, Culture, Work Life, and Health

In 2015, Apple Harry Potter-ized our pics with the introduction of photos-as-moving-pictures, aka 'live photos.'
Live photos capture three seconds of video in total, with one and a half seconds recorded both before and after the shutter clicks. To view the whole sequence, you just press and hold the live photo. You'd think this would be a video, but it's actually a High Efficiency Image File (HEIF) format; the file automatically selects one still as the lead image. But what if you want to share the whole sequence of moving images on a device other than a smartphone, or as a .GIF?
To do this, you need to convert a live photo into a video. This previously required downloading a third party Shortcut, such as the Convert LivePhotos to Video shortcut. You could also use another third party app to turn live photos into .GIFs: Twitter introduced this in 2019. Read more...More about Videos, How To, Live Photos, Tech, and Consumer Tech

Ready for a Marvel surprise? Square Enix has a Guardians of the Galaxy game coming, and it's totally separate from the publisher's 2020 Avengers game.

Based on what we've seen so far, it looks like the game delivers a pretty familiar mix of combat, exploration, and character interactions, with the choices you make influencing the plot to some extent. You'll also notice stuff like health bars and ability menus in the footage. Like I said, familiar stuff, but excitingly, it's playing out here in a Marvel universe.

The Apple Watch has many strengths, but battery life isn't one of them. While Apple's smartwatches are rated for up to 18 hours of power (depending on usage), it's not the same as the days-long battery life offered by competitors.

Here's how to check how much juice is left on your Apple Watch.
To check battery life from the Apple Watch itself, swipe up on the display to access the Control Center. From there, you'll be able to see the battery percentage. Read more...More about Apple Watch, Tech, and Consumer Tech

I have waxed about Indian movie musicals at length on this website and others, but in recent years — especially since Aladdin — my frustration grew with Hollywood's failure to realize the same potential in its own live-action musicals. I've run into this in my own experience as a part-time dancer, creating videos with various other performers and companies. Performance is different for an audience than a camera, right down to singing live versus lip-sync. Video choreography is often more intense since dancers can rest in between takes and only perform small sections at a time.
