Lovely walk today. I find it mind blowing that the sun shining up there is a star and we’re whizzing around it at circa 67,000 MPH, but also mind blowing that most people don’t even ponder that fact and seem to spend a lot of time worrying about trivialities.

Fantastical 3 😄 Another subscription model 😟 I’m afraid I’m about done with paying subs for apps. More than happy to pay one-off costs for apps and additional for upgrades, but that’s it. 9to5mac.com

Comment: I don’t think subscription apps are a sustainable business model

A free month with full access to the Waking Up app. I use this almost every day and it’s wonderful.

Is there really no keyboard shortcut on the iOS Gmail app to delete an email when using an external keyboard? It says I can use #, but pressing that does nothing for me - tried all other modifiers with it and nothing seems to work. Someone please put me out of misery!
