I may be 650 miles away, but I’m ready for Mississippi State Darkhorse to make some noise at the Mardi Gras Ultimate Tournament in Baton Rouge!
I am incredibly frustrated that my tax dollars are being wasted by our governor to participate in the Texas governor’s politically-driven crusade. Our national border falls under only one jurisdiction: the federal government. What the Texas governor and his misguided partners like the Missouri governor are doing at the border will have little to no benefit and is just a show for a constituency that has lost sight of what is important.
Is the US a Christian nation? If you read the constitution and other writings available at the time of the founding of the nation, the answer is quite simple: No. I suspect that if we could go back and ask the founders this same question, their answer would be “absolutely not.”
So, what in the world happened? Why do we have “In God We Trust” on our money? Why is “under God” included in our pledge? Why is “In God We Trust” displayed in the House of Representatives?
I argue that none of these things are actually constitutional. The words and the reasoning behind them were never meant to unite anyone and have actually caused the US to be like all of the other countries in the world where religious differences cause division, hate, and violence.
If we have any hope of the US remaining a vibrant nation ruled by law and not religion, we need to embrace our founding documents and completely remove religion from government.
I am starting to get really excited to see the next generation of CarPlay become a reality. What would be great is if at least some of the enhancements become available in exiting cars. For example, our Volkswagen’s dashboard already has media and navigation data integration built in so the driver never needs to look anywhere but right in front of them. It will be curious to see what else is possible!
We’ve all seen the leaks and hints from Apple about the next iOS. What if the big thing is Apple providing an AIKit to every single third-party Apple developer? Wouldn’t that be something?
Ladies and gentlemen, can I please have your attention.
The search for bread in St. Louis that is worthy of being part of an Italian Beef sandwich has finally concluded. That’s right, folks; a local vendor carries Turano French rolls! The very same rolls that Portillo’s uses!
So, if you’re making Italian Beef at home, or you’re a restaurant that claims to have an Italian Beef sandwich, stop by Gordon Food Service and pick up the only roll that will prove you know the real deal.
I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again. It is insanely frustrating that Google and Netflix refuse to integrate with the TV app across Apple’s platforms. There is no reason YouTube TV and Netflix cannot integrate. It is a product decision that they are making intentionally. At a time when seamless integration is an expectation, these product decisions make absolutely no sense to me.
While more expensive than its competitors, the Apple TV device is by far the best streaming device available on the market. Once a user adds all of their favorite apps and services, the TV app becomes a valuable tool to surface, aggregate, and organize shows, movies, and sporting events. Why a content provider would intentionally choose to not use every channel available to them to get their content in front of as many eyes as possible is completely illogical to me.
The reality is that my family searches the Apple TV app first, YouTube TV second, and Netflix third. I have noticed this behavior with each family member. So, if the content is available directly on another app, YouTube TV and Netflix lose those streams. Admittedly, Netflix is on notice at our house. I’m just not sure we need it anymore.
