Apple's Dark Pattern


It just occurred to me that daily notifications in Settings on iPhone/iPad/MacBook are a dark pattern from Apple, trying to persuade me to enable 2FA/passcode etc.


Wait a sec — what's that classic series I'm recalling?

Draft Top LIFT — Episode 2: Road test here at boj World HQ

I featured this clever device on January 10, 2023, and after thinking about it for a while ponied up and took a flutter.

My version of eating my own dog food.

Long story short: it works as advertised — though there is a bit of a learning curve until you get as slick as the demonstrator below or yours truly up top.

It took me three cans with subpar outcomes before I mastered the machine.

Fair warning: opening cans with the Draft Top LIFT and then putting them in the fridge is a recipe for a big wet mess if you happen to knock a can over, something I do from time to time.

Lagniappe: I paid $32.99 but it's now $24.99.
