  24. I wish @audible_ca would offer yearly subscriptions (with rebate) in Québec. I think I'll just "gift" to myself a 12 months subscription every year.
  25. This Apple Watch update for @audible_ca is completely broken. Can't control the audio from watch anymore. Watch app crashes if trying to play uploaded audiobook. Has anyone tested this? @audiblesupport

  31. So I guess @CraveTVCanada doesn't work today (can't login with Crave account). Is that what we're paying $2 extra per month for? Can't remember last time I had Netflix login issues.
  32. All Bluetooth headphones that charge with USB should support USB as a digital audio source. My Sennheiser PXC 550 is the 1st BT headphone I've used that supports it, and it's amazing. Lossless digital end-to-end.

  34. So I had to reinstall a bunch of @StandardNotes extensions to make them work again. Listed Action was missing, and after reinstall I lost the @benad user name on listed forever. This is still horribly buggy. Waste of money.
  35. Blog Post: Those Games About the Creed of Assassins
  36. So my YouTube suggested video list is now full of clickbait and contrarian titles. Like a reviewer who wrote a bad review to a Rotten Tomatoes 100% score. Or “The Top X Worst” you can guess a mile away. Hey, at least no video of dead corpses found in the woods. Yet.
