      there is no need for manual reboots.

      I’ve had to reboot a few times over the years when an app would freeze or just backing out didn’t work to bring the system back on its feet. No big deal and it works. This is why Apple gives you the step by step process to get back into operation. It happens.

      I’m rolling down the hill laughing! But I do like the yellow case, beats Apple’s mundane gold, black or silver.

      CB chatter was ‘all the time’ whilst we cruised… mobile phone calls were zip, ‘cos no-one knew anybody else who had one.

      The CB was a good alert system for anything from what lies ahead to entertainment over the air waves as Trucker Bob and his entourage sang Ronstadt’s “Willin’”. Willie Nelson was in the queue somewhere too. They saved my life a couple of times, and from a ticket or two on the highway speedway. The iPhone can’t do that when you don’t have the number of the rig rolling ahead of you.

      in reference to the singalong on the highway. https://youtu.be/IJHcD0kHTGk

      This was my Mom’s mobile phone in 1990 or thereabouts. 🙃 Her phone was black and the case was the size of a miniature suitcase. She offered it to me for a road trip and I opted for my CB radio instead. It was smaller.

      The art of photography in my world and on the stage of photographers I’ve known throughout the years, the skill of operating a high end camera far surpasses taking a phone out of pocket using presets for filter and special effects. My point is there are more shortcuts these days rather than using a skill many have earned through rigorous training and hands on experience. The world is in a rush to accomplish much in too short of time. A good story isn’t written in haste, it’s a timeline of savoring each frame until the end.

      My interpretation of comparing a DSLR to an iPhone 11 Pro, is the real thing versus an all in one take a photo and call your friend at the same time scenario. Getting behind the lens of a DSLR is a matter of focus in handling the skill of photography. No phone involved, just the photographer and the perfect shot through skill and planning. Price is always a factor when decisions get serious.

      My iPhone is an alert system that pretty much can save our lives here in the land of inferno Maximus. Reminders app gets a workout because of a ToDo list that never ends. The landline is the chat line and email is to stay in touch. If the device was out of reach for an unknown period of time, I wouldn’t crumble. It does make life a little easier in crazy times. But, once upon a day or night it was just me behind the wheel of a VW at 2 in the morning driving miles with no access to a phone unless I had a dime in my pocket or there was a gas station open in the middle of nowhere. And I lived to tell the story. Times change. The phone is handy if I need it, but it isn’t glued to my ear or affixed to my hand. Pocket ready in an emergency.

      The two we had did fray at the ends like you mentioned. Have two other Apple lightening cables put away as spares. The Amazon cables are really strong and flexible. Hopefully they’ll last. Would rather use original equipment with the devices but it is what it is.

      Indeed. Like PaulT said, it’s on my local network so no problem. I needed that reminder from him. 🙃

      I’ve had two come apart at the ends and had to order an Amazon Basic cable that has worked great now for over a year. I use the original adapter plug and have had no problems with the replacement cables from Amazon.

      On the other hand, router settings accessed through http should give an option under “Connectivity” to switch from http to https. I don’t see anything mentioned in this article about accessing the router settings through the browser. Does anyone have any feedback for this?

      I had the first-gen Apple Watch, and someone literally asked me if I were a spy when they saw me talking into it. The fact that I was wearing a long, dark coat and had a wired phone headset at the time with the cord running down the back of my jacket so I looked “wired up” didn’t help.

      Agent Parker we are looking forward to your next update on the new iOS 14. The watch is impressive for many reasons, that it can help those with special needs is priceless.

      I run Norton AV. I’ve never used Windows Defender so I can’t give a comparison. Have had a good experience with Norton on various Windows systems for many years.

      I’m happy with my old Air2, even though it won’t get iPadOS 14

      Guess I was wrong. And how did I miss the announcement the iPad Air2 would get iPadOS 14 afterall. Not complaining. Happy. 💁🏻‍♀️
