Windy AirPods Max

Apple AirPods Max

We ordered our AirPods Max on the day of the announcement… but they don’t arrive until Friday for the White/Silver pair (David’s) and 2 weeks for the Blue pair (mine).

Welcome to 2020

It’s another year… 2020 already. Another decade, another time. On the global scale the past few years have been a bit of a mishmash of bad things. Bad governments, bad climate, bad local choices. Let’s hope that 2020 will be better all around.
