A virtual hoard of the shiny things I find on the internet.
Posting this not so much as an endorsement of iPhones in general (though I continue to love mine and always have) but because THIS is the kind of review I want to read- I suppose it’s nice to have side-by-sides of how long device batteries last for hours of video playback or whatever, but what I care about is this:
Will the device support my life? Can it take good photos of my kid in less than optimal conditions? Is it going to crap out on me when we’ve been out having fun all day? Can I see the screen when we’re out in the sun?
A review centered around how well the devices supported tourism with a small child in tow is, as the kids say, RELEVANT TO MY INTERESTS.
More reviews like this, please.
This article is about the main commercial corridor that borders my neighborhood. It includes a paragraph about the diner we go to every weekend (where all the photos of Charlie with PAMCAKES AND EGGS are taken).
I’m glad the reinvestment in RIA is proceeding slowly- DC doesn’t need another strip full of small plates places with $14 cocktails. But our neighborhood could totally use some more neighborhood-serving businesses: coffee shops, ice cream places, dry cleaning/clothing alterations, that sort of thing.

Unlike the backup to iCloud, the encrypted, local backup will retain all your stored passwords and stuff.
