When you go to Whole Foods to do "Amazon return"

  I was doing Amazon return and when I saw it's at Whole Foods, I knew I am getting something extra tasty.

Fun game every day for a minute - Wordle

Just when I thought I found a perfect docking system

  I am slowly getting tired of switching cables between different computers, so I thought I look up docking station and I will be switching just one cable only. And then I saw those words... No linux docking station Yeah, I can wait. [My older surface doesn't have USB-C] No linux docking station II Seems like USB-A docking + 2 x 4k HDMI +  + ethernet + Linux + Windows is impossible to find Update: Hmmm... Maybe? Bit pricier though

When you finally find out who is the King of Everything 🤣

Loud and clear

  Once a while, it's nice to listen to music a bit louder than usual. I finally found pretty good & not too pricey setup.  Sony MDR7506 headphones (98$),  Douk Audio U3 Mini Class A Headphone Amplifier (42$) and  SoulBay 48W Universal AC Adapter DC (19$).

If you use provided USB cabl

You must be kidding me Apple

If you want me to switch to other non-Apple brand smartphone just send me an email, don't block my legally bought music NO - NOT OK and NOT even "OK" Update: Solution - remove all music from iPhone, make sure it's empty and sync again with entire library. While not only sync mechanism is broken, the error message is also wrong.

The "truth" did not last that long...

  Damn it! I actually liked this key-chain. Oh well. Veritas
