  1. Honestly, the only reason I invested in airpods was for the functionality of being able to seamlessly switch between apple devices. I am so entangled in the apple world, as a designer, that for me it’s just easier to work within hardware that should work together from one manufacture.

  2. Thanks Trace, British Columbia Legislation is currently debating losing DST, which there was a referendum a couple of years ago where >90% of the public said “get rid of it”. The elimination of DST in Canada is under control of the provincial gov’t, so we are waiting for what the rest of the west coast to decide.

  3. Really appreciate you guys talking about recycling the airpods. I love electronics, but too many designers aren’t at all concerned with sustainability, ffs this is textbook planned obsolescence!
