Ah, interesting. Thanks.


What is M, and the codes in that column?


Ah, the write one to throw away feature kicked in.

(I remember that problem. And I got used to using the desktop clipboard to paper over it too. Thanks for the reminder not to trust iOS’s clipboard to hang around.)


Have you tried dropping the nap?


That sounds like a solid description of the experiences I’ve seen of people trying to screenshare after upgrading to Catalina. Maybe we should be holding our breath for iOS 14 to make the phone equally awkward somehow. >.>


I disagree. Split screen took some practice, but I sure as heck wouldn’t want to go back! I use split screen a _lot_ for reading & note taking, or writing and consulting reference material. (I use slide over when I need to consult or write notes less frequently.)

If you leave the Dock autopopulating recent and suggested apps, you launch an app, go “oh this would be good with that other app”, go launch that other app, then drag in app 1 to the screen from the Dock’s Recents section.


Bravo for the performance fix. Very noticeable!

Yes, but the knowledge taught now is particular rather than general. And so world history gets squeezed out for an extra helping of whatever a specialty needs. (And agreement about what exactly should make up a general education is also far harder to come by, even for places that try.)

Lack of transfer of knowledge is demonstrated again and again and is kind of amazingly resistant. Knowing how to do a thing in domain A only rarely carries over to doing it in domain B. Which is why “computery stuff will make people such whizzes at (math/physics/whathaveyou)” is wishful BS.

Though on teaching intelligence, there definitely was a big shift from Uni being a rare thing to being generally expected - and what happens when you aim to grant the whole bell curve a degree as a matter of course.





Yes. The sentiment crystallized into a slogan both too late and too early for something intended as a retort to the timeless “kids these days”.
