I’ve been producing less content for the site over the last few weeks, and I thought that deserved a quick explanation. I’m still working on creating the best content I can, but that work has shifted recently from generating daily articles about tech towards more long-term projects that don’t see the light of day for quite some time.
Eagle-eyed observers may have noticed a new link in this site’s navigation in the past couple days as “The Good Stuff” showed up out of nowhere. I thought I’d take a second and explain what’s going on.
Square-Enix just put up a page for an upcoming RPG titled Cosmos Rings. Normally this wouldn’t be big news to me, as I don’t really play many RPGs these days, but when you tell me that game is for the Apple Watch…well then you’ve got my attention. I’m really interested to see how this thing shakes out.
It’s been a little while since the last Wallpaper Weekend here on BirchTree, but I think you’ll enjoy these.
Apple’s watchOS 3 is a pretty excellent update overall, but there are a few things were Apple is missing the mark in my opinion. The first one was with the new Timer app’s interface, which they have already partially addressed, but now after using the beta for a few weeks another glaring flaw has become obvious. Media controls have taken a big step backwards compared to watchOS 1 & 2.
I did almost nothing on the site this year except keep it running. Mainly I spent the year fomenting and profiting from online drama. But lately a kind of coding mood has descended on me, and I hope I can spend some time later in the summer figuring out how on earth the site works, and making some long-overdue improvements.
