Not feeling great about Fabinho starting at center back against Chelsea today. Assuming both Gomez and Matip have some injuries going on, but Chelsea is going to come out firing with their new front three and wingers… Henderson and Wjinaldum are going to need to play perfect.

On the verge of subscribing to ESPN+ again given they now have the Bundesliga along with Serie A. Weekend morning are already pretty full between the EPL and IPL (plus F1) though so I’m not sure how much use I’d actually get out of it…

IPL on the TV, Leeds on the iPad. Good start to the weekend.

Excited to watch my first IPL season starting tomorrow morning. Got into it after Om Malik wrote about T20 at the end of the season last year and I watched some highlights. Then I got to enjoy the ODI World Cup and CPL T20. Have been dying for the IPL to kick off ever since.

What if, for Smart Stacks, you could have a 4x4 grid, but then when you swipe to the next widget it’s actually four 2x2 widgets or two 4x2 widgets. They all obey the same laws, why can’t we mix and match in a single stack?

Half-baked NBA challenge idea: only in the last two minutes of a game is the clock stopped and handled as it currently is. At any other time, an assistant tells someone at the table what they are challenging (mid-game) and the call is reviewed and decided at the video review center in NY. If the challenge is on a scoring play and won, the points are awarded to the team at the end of the quarter (not sure how to handle this in the fourth quarter), if it is not a scoring play, but the challenge is won, one point is awarded to the team. If the challenge is lost, the challenging team loses a timeout. If they are out of timeouts, a point is awarded to the opposing team. I would start with two challenges per team per game. One to be used during the last two minutes, one for the rest of the game.

I just watched Rene Ritchie and John Gruber bash the App Library folders, but if I were able to create them myself as a little widget I would in a heartbeat. I get that it’s just three apps plus a folder in the bottom right, but it looks nicer…

I just want Drafts and Roam to work together in a magical, cohesive way. Is that too much to ask for? I don’t even need a Roam app, but I don’t want to have to use Roam’s Quick Capture. Just a simple action to place text at the bottom of the Daily Note.

Think I’m going to edit my Link Log/Links Ahoy shortcut so that everything goes to the Link Log, but only the best stuff goes to the Links Ahoy posts. I feel like this will make the Links Ahoy posts more useful.

Really dig this Artists: Charge!” poster from Ganzeer.

A Promised Land is most certainly going to get me to sign up for another month of Audible so I can hear Barry’s dulcet tones read to me for 30 hours.

The watchOS update seems to have vastly improved the reliability of connecting my AirPods (2nd Gen) and switching from iPhone to iPad to Watch playback with the AirPods is seamless. Touch play on one device, the current device pauses and the playback automatically switches. Wonderful.

Super excited about the Thiago signing, but I hope this doesn’t mean they end up losing Wjinaldum. Those two and Fabinho would be the ultimate midfield, in my opinion. Thiago in the more attacking role, getting creative with Firmino, Wjinaldum, central, and Fabinho, defensive.

The Carrot weather widget is a teeny bit disappointing for me. I don’t know what I was expecting, but it looks like a weather widget… I think I wanted the design of the widget to be more fun and have more character like the app. Probably hard to do in such a small space though.

Eagerly awaiting widgets for Things, Fantastical, and Hey to complete my home screen setup.

Loving the Drafts and Unread widgets so far. I’ve changed some of my quick Drafts actions to be prompts and then launch them from the widget to be prompted for the text rather than open Drafts, type text, fire off action.

I’m probably wrong, but it just screams what’s a low cost service we can provide to offset Apple News+ in the bundle?” to me. It may very well prove to be successful on its own, but $30 just seems a bit high for the suite of services.
