    MobileViews Podcast 328: Fitness trackers & more

    First, apologies for the audio quality (low volume) on my side of the discussion.
    In this podcast, Todd Ogasawara (low volume side of the discussion) and Jon Westfall discuss: Linux GUI Apps Coming to Windows 10; Krita open source painting program; Still no notification about moving music from Google Play Music to YouTube Music. But, I was notified about moving this podcast to new Google Podcast Manager; Jon's fitness gadgets; Jon's R tip of the week - string manipulation

    MobileViews Podcast 327: Google Music's long goodbye; browser benchmarks?; iOS text notification quirkiness; Jon's R tip of the week

    In this podcast Todd Ogasawara and Jon Westfall discuss:
    iPad Pro 11-inch replaced. No more spontaneous shutdowns and reboots
    Google Play Music going away. Forced to switch to YouTube Music. But, no sign of the "transfer button" on YouTube Music for iPadOS.
    How much credence should I give to browser speed tests like Speedometer 2.0? I began wondering about this as I debate whether to buy the new Lenovo Chromebook Duet when it is available somewhere (other than in reviewers' hands).
    Jon’s Using his Apple Watch to its full potential.
    iOS text messages & multiple devices - notifications problem
    Still struggling with URL Schemes with Microsoft Office (why doesn’t ms-excel:// always open in office or Excel - WHY would it open Onedrive?!?)
    Revisiting the Microsoft Whiteboard app
    Microsoft Office app for iOS and Android
    Jon’s Struggle to use a Apple 27’’ Cinema Display (2010, not thunderbolt, Mini-Displayport) with USB C. Cost of my desired refresh.
    Jon's R tip: Web Scraping with rvest package - example code below. Basically if you can read HTML and understand CSS classes, you can find information and download it.

    MobileViews Podcast 324: Mostly Apple

    Todd Ogasawara and Jon Westfall talk mostly about Apple products in this podcast: Apple TV+ makes 8 series free for viewing (but, does anyone care?); every season of Modern Family for $100 in the Apple store; the iPhone's "Set Up for an Alternate Appearance" doesn't work with a face mask on - by design; and Jon ordered parts to bring his Apple 27’’ Cinema Displays into the modern world - they connect over MiniDisplay port, so a MiniDP - HDMI output, a USB C hub with passthrough charging, and a charger.
