As we are now on the back end of Thanksgiving with the holidays upon us, a lot of us are thinking about new automation routines using Siri Shortcuts. One shortcoming with the new system is the inability to address a specific HomePod via Siri Shortcut. You can play music through a specific HomePod by triggering the shortcut with your voice. Of that today. I’m thinking, however, in terms of a remote trigger that doesn’t involve me talking to the specific HomePod. What if I just want to trigger a shortcut that has a music playlist in it and address a specific HomePod without using my voice?
Or even better, I’ve got a HomeKit switch on my front door. Why can’t the act of opening my front door enable me to not only turn on the Christmas tree lights but also play my Yule playlist through the downstairs HomePod? For the time being, at least, you are going to have to trigger that playlist from the HomePod itself using your voice. While I’ll agree that Siri Shortcuts got a lot further in the last six months than I ever expected it, this is definitely one of those tools where the more I get, the more I want. I have spent a lot of time in the last few months trying to figure out how to configure my Apple watch infograph watch face. This watch face certainly brings to mind the old warning about being careful what you wish for. For so long I've been looking for a watch face with many complications and now Apple has given it to me.
The problem is, I made a big mess out of it. My first attempts involved using all of the available complications. If it was shiny, I put it in. The trouble with that is the complications surrounding the watch hands tend to blend in with the watch hands. As a result, when you glance at your watch, sometimes it is difficult to tell what time it is. Ultimately, I decided that complications in the center of the watch face were generally a bad idea. The only exception I made for that was the calendar watch face.
I hyper-schedule my days. I like having appointments set up for my next tasks and I run these all day. I frequently look at my watch to see where I need to go next or what I need to be working on next. Having the calendar available and the next event written across the top of the infograph face is quite useful. For that reason, I have been leaving the calendar in the center complication, but that's it.
The rest of the center of the watch face is blank. Making it easy to read the watch hands. The idea of this watch face is to create something for use during the day while I'm trying to be productive. I have a separate face that I use for my workouts. I did not include any health-related information on this watch face.
Instead, I knew I wanted to use the drafts and OmniFocus complications. The trouble with these complications is that they add text along the rim of the actual watch face. With OmniFocus, it gives you your next task, and with drafts, it gives you your inbox count. I don't want that across the top of the watch face because looking at those words on top of the next appointment makes a jumble of letters that again is difficult to read as you're getting through your day.
As a result, I decided to put the OmniFocus in drafts complications in the bottom slots. For a while, I tried the watch just like this with no additional complications across the top, but it made the watch look bottom heavy, and I do love complications. As a result, I decided to put some additional complications across the top of the screen.
I don't want words combining with my next appointment, a condition of any complication going across the top of the screen is that it'd not have words across the bottom of it, but instead a line or some other graphic image. Ultimately, I decided on the timer and CARROT weather. I use timers all day for things like the Pomodoro Technique or just checking on the water in the garden. This one has already been a winner for me on my day to day watch face. I'm not sure about the need for a weather complication.
I live in California, and the weather is generally pretty mild. I don't need a minute by minute update of what the temperature is. I am, in general, pretty happy with this setup for the Apple infograph watch face.
I am, however, still not entirely convinced it's any better than the Siri watch face. I used the Siri watch face all of last year, and it generally gives me the information I need when I need it.
I am disappointed that it hasn't done a better job of servicing third-party application information as we were promised with iOS 12. While I'm giving the infograph face a real try here for awhile, I can't promise I won't ultimately end up back on the Siri watch face, particularly if it gets better at third-party integration.

This one pushes all of my buttons. As an annual passholder, I've enjoyed watching Star Wars grow out of the Disneyland backlot over the last year.
The new Star Wars themed land will be called Galaxy's Edge and, thanks to Josh Gad (long story), I spent some quality time with the primary Galaxy's Edge designers. If you are curious, I explain the story and the details in This week Disney announced that John Williams is creating new and original Star Wars themes just for the new park. They even posted a video showcasing the new music with some very recent flybys through the area under construction. Disney says the California iteration of Galaxy's Edge is supposed to open this summer. Every time I watch the below video, my inner eight-year-old flips out.

Jason Snell wrote a in Macworld about exactly how configurable Apple will make future MacBooks and MacBook Airs. In short, he thinks our options will be limited and that is born out by the currently shipping MacBook Airs that will let you pick RAM and Storage levels but offers no configuration as to the processor. I agree with Jason. Particularly if Apple moves the Macs (or some portion of the Macs) over to ARM processors, I believe they will be treated as appliance computers more than ever before. Consumers buy iPads and iPhones without considering processor (or RAM!) customization and I think Apple would love to pull off the same trick on the Mac.

We tell you how. Next Rose explains some of the Zapier recipes we use to automate the production of Automators. (Of course we do that.) This show is sponsored by, which we both love very much.
