Phone wasn’t touched, just sitting on the couch for the last 2 hours. Apple’s Music app starts playing.

My iPad does this all the time. It will play tv shows from Plex even if it's in a bag all by itself or sitting on the counter. Always Plex.

My iPhone will often be in the camera app when I take it out of my pocket. How does it unlock in my pocket?



Ukulele music I couldn't find anywhere else.

Had to be said.






I am that Masked Man.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

No, but I think I've figured it out because something similar happened again today. Here's the sequence:

1) Use AirPods Pro with something.
2) When finished, remove AirPods but squeeze one too tightly, triggering "Play."
3) Device that can play music, does so. Yesterday my Mac auto-launched Music as a result, but could not play. It hung. About a second later, the phone starts playing music instead.

This morning the Mac wasn't involved but I caught myself squeezing a Pod too much while removing it and the phone started to play through the other Pod not yet removed.

I'll read this page after my coffee # 2 today: [support.apple.com]

There's a curious couple of scenarios were sometimes auto connect happens, other times it won't, such as when "the other" device isn't even in the mix at all, leaving me with the presumption that by process of elimination(!) I'd expect the device I'm actively using at the time should "just work" with them.
