- We have been lied to by all our health classes in High School. The Great Sperm Race is…a bit over-masculinized.
- The new iOS update, or maybe my new phone, now forces the volume down when it detects that the headphone usage has been too high. I applaud apple for watching out for everyone’s hearing; that’s a good thing. I was going to be all upset about this because this message popping up is due to my bluetooth line-in plug for my car. And that needs to be volume 100%. Every time it popped yesterday on my longer drive it would turn down the volume. That was highly irritating.
- Turns out the iOS volume monitoring for bluetooth can be adjusted by assigning different categories to the bluetooth devices that are connected. All I had to do was assign the car bluetooth as “car stereo” rather than headphones. Works like a charm.
- “Bluetooth” should be capitalized, but I refuse. Bluetooth has become like xerox and kleenex and frisbee. It’s too ubiquitous for me to capitalize it.
- Speaking of bluetooth, I also learned that good-quality noise-cancelling headphones are amazeballs.
Zoom school finally pushed me over the edge to spending this months discretionary money on some noise cancelling headphones.
