I figured I'd start this because I remember we had a pretty lively thread about podcasts on the old board, and I just got Downcast for downloading podcasts. I listened to Harry Shearer's "Le Show", which is pretty amusing if you like Seymour Skinner going over the current events of the day. So I figured my life needed more things like that. Here's my preferences. -Comedy. It can be high-brow stuff like Le Show or any of the other NPR stuff, but I'll also listen to good ol' standup and that kind of stuff. The only thing I care about is if it's funny. Satire and the like are fine, too. -Sports? Preferably soccer, baseball, and maybe hockey. -News stuff, maybe politics, preferably left of center. -Gaming, too. So what're you listening to these days, and what do you think I'd dig?
My iPhone 6 updated today and, part of the update, Appie added a feature on battery life. New feature says my battery is significantly degraded, but also says max capacity is at 76% (of new capacity, I guess?) and is functioning at peak performance capacity. I'm not sure what "peak performance capacity" means, but I think it means the throttling feature is turned off. The notes for the update indicate that the "throttling' feature that slows performance to save the battery from crashing was turned off by the update and will be turned back on after the phone shuts down unexpectedly. How bad is 76%. Meh or.... really terrible? I don't have a frame of reference for that. I do notice some differences in performance and speed this morning, but nothing dramatic. Around the time Apple started doing this, my phone did crash and had to be taken to the store because I couldn't get it to reboot or charge (they pressed a few buttons and did a hard reboot). Kinda wondering if I should go either buy a new battery or upgrade the phone at lunchtime. I've been considering upgrading the phone for a while, but there's usually been some other expense that takes priority. At this point, I'd kinda like to wait to upgrade the phone till fall of the holidays. Assume a new model may be out in the fall.
