Last week, Elizabeth met me at a local restaurant so i set a reminder to have her drop me off at the car when we left the restaurant. The reminder never fired. I forgot to get the car, and to file a radar. Until this morning while on a bus, I passed said restaurant and… Continue reading Get the car
CarPlay UI locked up again
The dreaded CarPlay vs iOS 11 vs Chevy Volt bug where the entire UI locks up happened again. This is getting old, Apple. When this happens, the only solution is to reboot the iPhone. Terrible.
Netflix on Apple TV is playing black video
