Today is the release date for the newest version of Apple’s mobile OS, iOS 15.

This version is compatible with a device as old as the iPhone 6S, released in 2015, which is absolutely mind-blowing.

For contrast, the main competitor for the iPhone 6S was the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. A device which received official updates until Android 7, released only one year later.

I think things might be better right now on Android’s side (not sure), but I can’t believe there’s people who can shit on Apple as an “obsolescense planner” while at the same time ignoring the Android alternatives that basically got outdated in only two years.

Don’t get me wrong, there’s a lot to criticize about Apple, but this kind of arguments are just a big hater red flag.

This literally rescued this blog. GitHub Pages and Jekyll are awesome but the process of writing a new post can be a bit tedious.

Pressing dot (.) while in a GitHub repo main page is basically the same as changing the “.com” in the github url for a “.dev”. It opens an in-broser editor based on Visual Studio Code, which happens to be a really good editor, and allows you to quickly make changes.

In combination with GitHub Pages and an extension for markdown preview it’s the perfect tool for updating a blog.

There are still a couple details that could be easier, like drag-drop uploading images to a post, but I bet we soon will see extensions allowing these kind of things.
