Apple AirPods satisfaction at a remarkable 98% for customers
> New Experian survey explores consumer satisfaction with AirPods and other voice-first hardware.

Doesn't surprise me at all, the AirPods are my favorite Apple gadget in a long time. But, curious about how many use it as a _voice-first hardware_. First thing I did was turn-off Siri on double-tap.

Apple’s Devices Lose Luster in American Classrooms
> The shift toward Google-powered devices is hurting Apple’s revenue. Of the $7.35 billion that schools, colleges and universities spent on mobile and desktop computers in 2016, sales of Apple devices fell to $2.8 billion in 2016, from about $3.2 billion in 2015, according to IDC, a market research firm.

This is not like the smartphone marketshare debate, where the iPhone is _"loosing"_ – yet has by far the biggest revenue share. On schools they are _loosing_ in both areas.

> Then there is the keyboard issue. While school administrators generally like the iPad’s touch screens for younger elementary school students, some said older students often needed laptops with built-in physical keyboards for writing and taking state assessment tests.

Either physical or touchscreen, the iPad needs more space for the keyboard if you're doing common work. I know that for emails, messages and browsing the on-screen keyboard is fine. But to do a paper or report you can't have the keyboard obscuring half of an already crowed space.

Apple used to care about iBooks
Daniel Steinberg:
> I've joked that if Eddie Cue loved reading the way he clearly loves music, then iBooks, the iBookstore, and iBooks Author would be amazing. Not only aren't they amazing, they aren't even good.

In 2013 I helped out creating ebooks for a family friends. I first did the Kindle's version, and it was a painful experience – similar to making a website in the early days. I left the iBook for last, looking forward to the experience. A few days letter, I was back using the epub generator and converting it to the Apple format.

Sad to hear not much has changed.

CharlesSoft — software you always wished someone would write
Pacifist is a shareware application that opens Mac OS X .pkg package files, .dmg disk images, and .zip, .tar, .tar.gz, .tar.bz2, and .xar archives and allows you to extract individual files and folders out of them. This is useful, for instance, if an application which is installed by the operating system becomes damaged and needs to be reinstalled without the hassle of reinstalling all of Mac OS X, or if you want to inspect a downloaded package to see what it will install before installing it. Pacifist is also able to verify existing installations and find missing or altered files*, and Pacifist can also examine the kernel extensions installed in your system to let you see what installer installed them, and whether the installer was made by Apple or a third-party.

Classic Mac Icons
After the enormous success of the Apple II, and the utter failure of the Lisa, Apple followed up with the Macintosh. The Macintosh desktop icons were based heavily on the Lisa, but were more streamlined and held a 32 x 32 pixel footprint that became commonplace in the PC industry for years (Again, heavily based on the Xerox Star). The monochrome icons were designed by Susan Kare (who later went on to design the icons for Windows 3.0). The document icons were similar to those from the Xerox, while applications relied heavily on the diamond shape. These icons were the building blocks of each Macintosh system software that followed, but were ultimately userped by the new style of Mac OS X icons.
