Tidbits for 2024 Week 23

Match point Sunday everyone, it was Great Roland Garros tennis match today for anyone who got to see it. Of course BOOX introduces another e-ink device I want, but I’ll still wait until reMarkable updates its lineup. Luckily tomorrow we won’t get any hardware at WWDC, although maybe they’ll say the minimal specs for something cool is something I don’t have… that’ll be expensive. Have a geeky week!

  • AirBattery for Mac: battery usage of all your devices at once. I actually use AirBuddy, but this free app shows promise.

  • Looks Like Rain: weather app for iOS and Mac with nice design.

  • SimplyWM: I’ve failed setting up many tiling window managers, this early beta at least got me to a place I could have an opinion using it.

  • Roman Roads Subway Map: by Sasha Trubetskoy. I want this for some wall somewhere.

  • AI File Renaming and Organization: for macOS. Still no price, but looks like a useful tool for file overload.

  • MediaMate: macOS notch HUD for Volume, Display, Keyboard Brightness and Now Playing features. Not for me, but looks nice and better prices than other apps.
