The End of an Era

Disney has started telling cable and satellite distributors that it plans to shut down ESPN Classic on Jan. 1, 2022. Its ESPN Classic 2.0 online service also will go dark. ESPN Classic joins NBCSN as the second all-sports TV channel that will go dark at the end of the year.

I grew up watching ESPN Classic. It would always be on in the background when there were no live events on, and who can ever forget marathons of “The White Shadow”?

Another Year, Another Huge Update to Drafts on iOS/MacOS

For example, one of the biggest parts of this year’s fall update is the all-new watchOS app, completely rewritten in Swift. This isn’t a small undertaking, but it takes the already fantastic watch app and adds additional functionality. It retains everything that it had before, but adds the ability for multiple compilation types. If you really want, you can now have an all-Drafts watch face. Another nice feature, and one I’ve wanted for a while, is the inbox count reflecting the default workspace options; this means I no longer need to see 60+ drafts in my inbox, but rather only a handful that I want to keep in an inbox.

This is the best roundup of the update I have found, but Drafts continues to just get better and better. It’s such an impressive app from which shows what an independent (1 person) developer can do. The Watch update is insanely good.
