Six Colors: Amazon Fire TV Stick review
We got one.
I honestly didn't think it needed to be plugged in to a power source. I figured it either used its own little battery or got power from the HDMI port or something.
That severely limits its usefulness.

Meh. It had its moments, but it was not particularly well done.

Two things for now:
- The window moves around so easily. I click to bring it to the front, move my mouse somewhere, and the window - for some reason - follows along. STOP THAT!
- Also, please stop pasting links as linked text. Nobody getting my iMessage on a phone is going to be able to click it. It doesn't work. Send "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kySNQe7oHPw" not "5 Simple Keys® Key #4, SweetSpot Path - Where from? Where to?"

Gonna give Flashlight a try today based on this.
Edit: Quick testing of the iMessages plugin have all failed. Hmmmm.

I knew how aperture worked (pinhole cameras), but I didn't think to make my own eyesight better by looking through a hole formed by my fingers!

I bought the game mostly to show support against idiots going back and re-rating it with 1 star.
Turns out it's a great game and worth multiples of the money I paid for it. Particularly if you have a Family Share plan set up.

Finder Windows Disappearing, Finder Windows Disappearing, How do I stop Finder-Tabs from closing after Shutdown/Restart
I've had this issue for years.
I have a Finder window with tabs showing. Sometimes it's just one tab ("Downloads"), sometimes it's two or three. Rarely is it ever more than one window.
I leave them minimized almost all the time.
When I reboot, they'll still be in the Dock. When I click them, they'll zoom out of the Dock, and then immediately vanish. They're still listed in the "Window" menu, but you cannot "get" to them at all.
killall Finder brings them back after the Finder re-launches.
Why can't they just work the first time? I don't know. I've tried deleting the saved state, the finder.plist, and other things along the way. Nothing seems to work.

The Core wireless speaker system
Dave and I each have one of these things coming.
It supposedly sounds really good, so… Yeah. I really have almost no actual use for a speaker. Maybe I can use it as a PA system or something when I give a talk. A bluetooth microphone would be all that's needed, I think.

This Verbal Confrontation Shows Why Walmart Will Never Accept Apple Pay (Video)
As Tim Cook said, people like their credit cards. They're reasonably secure, they provide a record for billing, they offer rewards and points if used responsibly, they're easy to use, etc.
CurrentC or MCX is none of those things.
