MobileViews Podcast 299: Ya-Who???

In this podcast, Jon Westfall and I discuss:

  1. 21 year “Yahooversary”. From Yahoo! to Ya-who?
  2. Unlox has a new version out that actually stays running and connected to my iPhone on my older Macbook Air. I can now unlock my 2011 Macbook Air with my apple watch with the touch of a prompt. A good compromise for $3.99 when your mac is too old to natively unlock with Apple Watch. Also offers more customization.
  3. Jon’s iPhone X went a little too 3D last week, and had to be swapped out
  4. Rumors point to a Sept 11 launch of the next generation of iPhones
  5. Jon’s Apple Credit Card
  6. Samsers Foldable Bluetooth Keyboard – the problem, in general, with foldable keyboards
  7. A few adventures with Chrome OS (ref: OgasaWalrus
    – Crostini Linux container – installing apps (bc)
    – The surprising ease of running X Windows apps on a Chromebook in Crostini
    – Chrome OS 76 Virtual Desks on my Acer Chromebook Spin 13
