Appending Captured Text in Drafts to Daily Notes in Obsidian »
Drafts has long been the place that text starts on my iOS device. But lately I’ve been doing a lot more in Obsidian, and was looking for a way to get that text into Obsidian easily when I was done.

A Review of the Twelve South HoverBar Duo »
There are a few moments in Twelve South’s HoverBar Duo marketing video that surely garner a “wow” moment. The video starts out showcasing a multitude of ways you could use Twelve South’s new stand (like shooting a culinary video, recording an aesthetic video, or working at a desk with an iPad at an ergonomic height) and finishes off showcasing how easy it is to swivel, rotate, and maneuver the stand to fit your needs.
Chalk my review up to a “He’s holding it wrong!” scenario, but hindsight doesn’t serve that marketing video particularly well.
I simply can’t replicate the ease highlighted in that video.
