Pinned toot

Time for my long overdue toot!

My name is Eric. I’m a 26 year old and man/cub/person living in .

I love , , , , and . I‘m a fan of indie and want to start my own again. I watch way too much . Currently working in IT but looking for a way back to the digital content world.

Hoping to find a great community of tech enthusiasts and folks here! ☺️

Hey hey. I’m moving to @ericleamen so please follow me there for further toots about tech, Apple, Marvel, etc. Thanks!

Isn’t there a joke on HIMYM about how far outside your apartment door you’ll go in your underwear? My record is now to the dumpster in the back parking lot, where tonight I encountered a very large raccoon.

Today, on my last day in California, I traveled over an hour away from SF for a short visit to Apple Park. As an Apple fan and design nerd, I geeked out. Everything is so beautiful. Worth the journey to grab some merch and say I’ve visited Apple. ❤️ mastodon.social/media/dB4W7ctJ mastodon.social/media/TqX9QQEV mastodon.social/media/fRW32mHk mastodon.social/media/CdYF1li8

Apple event announcement! September 12. Always love seeing the new stuff. Wish buying it all wasn’t so painful for my wallet, though.

Clearly I need a bigger wallet.

Will Apple really release a 6.5" iPhone? That's huge! I loved my iPhones 6S Plus and 7 Plus, but can't imagine using anything bigger.

San Franselfie! How are you beautiful people? I’m trying to enjoy the conference I’m at but I’m lonely. mastodon.social/media/5IoTnp1Y

Attending a conference in San Francisco this week. It’s really cool being in the same building and same keynote theatre where Apple held many a WWDC in the past.

Wow. iOS 12 beta 11.

You can fit so many betas in this bad boy!

If you aren’t using bedtime, I highly recommend it. It’s the best kind of sleep app, encouraging you to go to bed and wake up at the same time (even on the weekends), and is one of the best things to do for your sleep health.

I'm glad the iPhone X and X Plus are looking like "S" updates, so I can resist a new phone and buy the edge-to-edge iPad Pro, Apple Watch Series 4, and all the accessories instead. It's time to go broke!

Finally decided I’m going to pierce my ears for real because I wanna look this damn cute all the time! 😜🏳️‍🌈🐻 mastodon.social/media/ULlaM4SH

Do we know of any decent Mastodon apps for Mac?

This is pretty wild to me. I was expecting a Roger Rabbit situation where the Pokémon would look like cartoons in a world full of humans. But the fact that we’re going to see official photorealistic designs for a bunch of Pokémon is really interesting. I hope they look awesome. Super curious to see the first stills and trailer.

In an interview with IGN, the director of Pokémon Detective Pikachu says the movie will feature photorealistic Pokémon:

“They’re incredibly real, you should think of it as the way [Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy character] Rocket Raccoon sits in the movie as if he’s really there. It’s that technology... It’s completely photorealistic, like they are alive and in the movie. I will say that it’s exactly how I wanted to see the Pokemon portrayed when I was a little kid.” ca.ign.com/articles/2018/08/25
