    There are a few instances where Apple Pay won’t work where nfc cards do. Another instance is paywave vending machines.

    Tough to know why or to predict it.

    I see. I thought it was something specifically to do with Petro gas pumps or something. Or something I was doing wrong.

    I am not sure if they plan on changing it but I know i can still cast from apps in iOS to chromecast. Audio apps like spotify work well also. My issue is Apple Music. It will not cast to anything but airplay and i am done with Spotify and making the switch which is why i want a airplay "reciever".
    Given I ain't replacing up to like 10+ chromecast devices around the house, love to see that iOS doesn't ban apps supporting chromecast.

    Not anythign you're doing wrong... most likely a specific problem with their pump contactless reader hardware/software. Just doesn't support the latest contactless standard that is used by Apple Pay.

    Yet...

    I wouldn't put it passed them. Or at least cripple it so its basically unusable. They currently do that with Apple Music and it may be a sign of the beginning of the end.

    Apple music should be coming to the google home app soon, it became available in a few countries a little while ago not sure why they didn't include canada though.

    It became available to any assistant enabled device. So a nest speaker or screen. This is enabled though the home app as a service. Traditional casting from an iOS device to a legacy chromecast device i doubt will ever happen.

    More random M1 performance notes.

    We have 3 kids doing online schools this week, each with a Macbook. An M1 MBA, and M1 MBP, and an Intel MBP. The M1's lasted the whole day with zero issues. The one kid with the Intel MBP has to plug in by 2pm every single day, and fan noise through the day using simply Google Meet and Google Classrooms and Google Apps. Pure silence through the whole day not he M1's.

    I also decided to try and run Windows ARM on the M1's yesterday through Parallels, and it runs absolutely smooth. Installed Steam and GTA 4 on it (I don't have enough storage to test GTA 5) and the game easily ran 60fps. Had the MacBook power the Xbox controller, and audio through my Beats over Bluetooth gave an estimated playtime of 5 hours on the M1 MBP. Good excuse to actually test it one day. Pretty impressive considering GTA 4 was double emulated + virtualized. Benchmark results:

    Windows ARM is still pretty flaky. Def not production ready, but good enough to emulate GTA 4 x64 to ARM.

    Definitely getting more space when work upgrades me to M1 to get GTA4 and GTA5 running on there. Perfect for my long flights.

    Has your kid told you to stop fucking around with his laptop and told you to get your own yet? haha

    They sleep early. Like 7pm early. Shit's fair game when they're out.

    I am happy with the M1 Air so far, although a colleague was telling me that apparently M2 has already been announced for later on in the year.

    Your colleague is incorrect that anything has been announced.

    However it is very likely. Will probably see a “pro” oriented M1X in the next few months along with new iMacs and larger MacBook pros.

    Following apples standard update schedule an M2 by the end of the year is entirely predictable (they have release new A processors every year since they started).

    Nothing to already consider switching over. Though I suppose there is a chance you could get one in black.

    My iPhone 12 doesn’t work with Qi wireless chargers. Tried in my Genesis. Nothing. It’s a dead feature for now. Will test on my truck later today. Seems to be an issue with the 12. I tried the hard shutdown work around nothing.

    there's always a newer hardware on the horizon, M1X is rumoured to be announced, possibly MBP 14 and 16?
    then wouldnt be surprised for new announcement for the fall models.

    but what good is it to wait when you need a laptop right away lol

    If I had a crystal ball to confirm that I will get at least 5 years of use out of it I think an Intel iMac 27 would be an awesome purchase right now.

    Confirmed eGPU support, optionality to run windows if thatís my perogative. Very tempting.

    I worry that Intel support will be deprecated in closer to 2-3 years from today though.

    Isn't that only a single emulated? I assume parallel allows you to run Windows on ARM VM and WoA is doing the x64 emulation thru OS/Software?

    Single emulated single virtualized. Should’ve used a slash instead.

    Anyone had to have bought a lightning dock extender for their cases? If so, whereabouts?

    Or bought a case that fits well with lightning docks? The Apple leather case I bought fits on a dock but also broke my old iPhone when I dropped it at the exposed bottom part

    Dented the port lol.

    The benefit of masks is not known at this time. But we do know it is some non-trivial amount more than zero.

    We also know that the cost of mask use is, essentially, zero.

    So the cost:benefit of mask use is approaching infinity. I'll take that every time. And every time I see someone without a mask, I think they are stupid.

    Im finalizing my transition from Android to Apple with replacing my Chromecast Audio's. Going to go with an Raspberry Pi, DAC, and a purpose built version of linux. Will act as a receiver for airplay to plug into already existing amplified "dumb" 2.1 setups i had around the house. Should cost me about $60 per. Ill post an update once the parts arrive and i get into it.
    Update here...

    Got the parts yesterday.

    IMG_1754.jpg

    Took all of 5 mins to put it all together.

    This unit has wifi so i set it up to automatically connect to my wifi on boot and configured it headless through SSH. Installed no OS raspbian then installed shairport-sync. Shairport-sync is a airplay compatible media player. It works well and has zero lag. Now multiroom will be interesting when i get more and will be the real test but for a simple airplay "receiver" this can't be beat.

    All in with shipping, this cost $80. Will cost less when I order more for the remaining devices.
