Hi, I'm Kappy, and I'm a blogger. Got these ideas here in my head. I'm writin' and postin' and makin' friends. Some say I'm best in the midwest [ed. note: there is no validity to this claim]. Singin' yippie-ai-yo-kai-yay. It's... Continue reading

I love new music announcements! When a band or musician I like (or love) lets us all know that they have some new stuff in the hopper, I'm happy. Just. Plain. Happy. For example, this morning, I received an email... Continue reading

I guess it would be but I only use Weather on my iPhone. Just handier that way.

I'm not sure what you mean about saving locations in the Weather app. I'm not signed in but have six different locations saved that I swipe left and right to toggle between. Just like I could do in the iOS weather app.

Did you say it, too? My bad. So you, KevinSpencer, and Yvonne (DutchBitch) got it.

Welcome to another, albeit less disgusting, edition of Macro Monday! Two people guessed last week's photo almost entirely correct. "Almost"? Allow me to explain. This... Is a turkey and cheese sandwich cross section... However, the filter I used darkened up... Continue reading

You expected it to have a more paranormal slant? Yeah, being King, I'd normally expect that too. But the jacket description seems anything but.

Can I ask what you were expecting? And by "we," I assume you mean you and your wife, right?

I never even made that connection to Palpatine's story. Ohhhhhh...

As you may recall, I've been "reading" the fourth George R.R. Martin novel in the A Song of Ice and Fire series -- A Feast For Crows -- as an audiobook via Audible. When I signed up for Audible, I... Continue reading

They really need to get on that. It's been a complaint for far too long.

Agreed. I have the latest two albums but still need the first.

We were sharing an account 100% until iOS 6, I believe. That's when it became necessary for her to have a secondary one for data syncing and whatnot. But for purchases and other itunesery, we share one and she doesn't have to punch in her password for updates. The only reason we keep it the same is so we can make purchases one time. We buy a book once and it's on two iPhones and two iPads. Yay!

What do you mean about the auto updates? App updates? Because Katie and I share an account for iTunes on our phones and she and I both have auto update working. Like you said about Kindle, Comixology has the content on their own servers and iTunes is just the viewer conduit. But since Comixology was bought by Amazon, it may be a competition thing instead of just an end runaround like you say. I forgot about that fact.

This past Saturday, my friend Eric and I attended our sixth annual Pitchfork Music Festival. As with each previous year, we only went to a single day of the three-day festival. We opted for Saturday. Why? Well, initially we were... Continue reading

Sorry this Macro Monday is coming late. I took the photos and posted them to IG, Twitter, Flickr, and Facebook. I just never got around to this place because we were taking care of a sick Nathan. So I'm posting... Continue reading

I put the unused apps in a folder as well, but the existence of the folder still bugs me as does the space it takes up of my iPhone's capacity.

It would be rather mind-blowing, wouldn't it?
