HomePod: I’ve just spent the last two hours listening to music and drinking red wine. It’s been a long time since I did that.

Just switched to listening to some gentle, evening-friendly classical on the HomePod, and clarity of the sound, the degree to which you isolate individual instruments, is really quite impressive.

HomePod first impressions: really fantastic sound, Siri better than expected, works fine for me and my five year old, but poor old 2 year old Iris is not recognised at all.

As a middle-aged dad of daughters, falling to the dark side has taken on a new and terrible name: going full brony.

John Perry Barlow thought that the struggle for digital freedom would continue after his death. And he’s right. But I’m grateful he did so much to prepare for that fight. RIP.
