    Monday, March 14th, 2016

    I found a cool project called Homebridge; it lets you bridge Apple’s HomeKit (and therefor Siri) to home automation items that aren’t natively HomeKit compatible. tl;dr I have my WeMo lights and my Craftsman AssureLink garage door opener added to my HomeKit configuration, along with my HomeKit native Ecobee 3 (which is not actually discussed […]

    Dear Steve Jobs, The 3G Launch Sucked

    Friday, July 11th, 2008

    Dear Steve Jobs, Next time you have the chance, kick someone over at AT&T for me. Thanks. Then kick yourself for allowing AT&T to dictate how you sell product. Thanks. Wow… purchasing an iPhone 3G was so not the experience I expected from Apple.

    So, I’ve been using my iPhone with my TL for some time now, and doing some research on the best way to integrate the audio into my factory stereo system. Here’s what I did, I’ll just link to the forum post I made, over at Acurazine… look for my username “DMoyes” it’s the 5th and […]
