My first Pebble app is here!

Hey, everyone! Today, I have some very exciting news. My first Pebble app has been released! Better yet, not only is it something pretty unique, but it also should be pretty familiar to those who have been following my blog and site for a little while. That's because this app is an all-new Pebble version of Compliment Moi!

While it shares a bit in common with its iOS and Android counterparts, this new version of Compliment Moi also has many unique elements. For example, since no Pebble watch has a camera on it, it does not take a photo of you. Additionally, you won't be finding specific compliment lists in this version of the app, as I wanted to keep it fairly simple.

However, how this version really differentiates itself is that it doesn't necessarily always compliment you. No, I'm not saying I've added insults now. Rather, I have also added some words of encouragement into the mix since I feel like that makes the app more helpful. To be clear, there are still a ton compliments in the app. I've just gone ahead an branched out a bit with it!

The other really unique aspect of this version is the all-new "Big Brain Mode" setting. Essentially, this plugs the time of day into the compliments and words of encouragement to make them more helpful. For example, in the morning, the app might tell you to have a good day, or in the evening, it might tell you that you did a good job today. This setting can easily be enabled or disabled depending on whether you find it useful or not. However, I think it's definitely pretty neat!

That's about it for version 1.0 of Compliment Moi for Pebble! I hope to add color and make many more improvements to it once I receive the Pebble Time I purchased a few days, so be sure to keep an eye out for more updates in the coming weeks. Until then, you can get the first release from my site, the project's GitHub page, and with any luck, hopefully the Rebble store soon. I hope you like it!

Late 2014 Mac mini in 2021 - How does it hold up?

Nearly two months ago, I finally got my first Mac: a late 2014 Mac mini. While I usually don't review stuff on this blog, I thought I would make an exception for this device. My hope is that this review will be helpful and fairly unbiased while helping you make a decision on whether or not to get one of these Macs. So, how does this miniature Macintosh hold up today? Design The Mac mini's design has remained largely unchanged over the last decade. There have been a few small updates and tweaks to it, but nothing particularly major. This means that the 2014 Mac mini features the usual premium and minimal aluminum casing with a white status LED on the front. Overall, I'd say this Mac mini's design has held up pretty well! It's very small, being only 8 inches wide and long, while only having a height of 1.4 inches. It weighs a little over 2.5 pounds, so it's not too heavy, either. These dimensions make for a very nice and compact computer, and I think it fits in wi

I made a custom iPod. Should you?

I made a custom iPod. Should you? The goal of this post is to share my experience modding this retro audio player and help you decide if you should attempt this project, too. While this isn't the sort of thing I usually write about on this blog, my hope is that this post will be helpful to those interested in building a custom iPod. So, without further ado, let's begin! The Backstory With the rise of DankPods , modding iPods has quickly become quite popular among retro tech enthusiasts. As someone who had been using iPods for several years prior to their resurgence in popularity, I was intrigued by the idea of making my own custom iPod. This was especially true since I had a broken iPod Video that I could easily mod. Then, something completely unexpected happened: the pandemic. I quickly realized that this would be a great project to work on during the lockdown. As a result, within days of everything shutting down, I had ordered all my replacement parts and prepared

3 years, 2 iOS apps, and a new site

In March of 2018, I wrote my first Tectra program. It was a basic web browser called Satin Web, and it was the first thing I made with C# and Windows Forms. It is now March 2021, three years later, and I am very excited to announce that the next chapter for Tectra is here. After hours of work, I have finally completed my first two iOS apps and have created a new site from scratch to go along with them. There is a lot to cover, so let's begin! iOS Apps TaskNudge TaskNudge is the first of my two iOS apps. It's pretty simple but very handy! Essentially, it lets you write a single, short-term task and get notified to complete it every 1-60 minutes, depending on what you choose. If you are easily distracted when you use your devices, have trouble remembering to do things, or need a bit of a nudge to get something done, TaskNudge might just be the app for you! Best of all, TaskNudge is very simple and easy to use, while being more useful than something like a timer or alarm. Once you
