Haven't Upgraded iPhone in Awhile - AirTags Will Change That


Recommended Posts

Still using an XS and really haven't felt like I needed to upgrade my phone. Now with the new AirTags, I think I'm going to get a new one just for the U1 chip, lol.

I like this strap, always losing my sunglasses.

My first thought was "Don't see a use for those."  Then, watching the videos, I thought "Hmmm... Might be handy on a keychain."  (In fact I've a set of keys for the mower and the shed I keep misplacing.)  Then the first video mentioned tagging luggage.  Then I found out how nearly every iPhone on the planet would become part of the "find my AirTag network."  Ok, I don't know how useful that'll end up, in practice, but it is pretty darn cool :)

Golf related: I think I've seen 2-3 posts here or on another golf forum where golfers have lost their range finders.  Either left them stuck to carts or they fell off their bags somewhere on the course.  Hmmm... stick an AirTag on it?

Don't know as I'm going to run right out and buy any, but I probably will before the next time my wife and I do any air travel.

I have locators on keys, wallet, cat, remote. They're especially useful for parents who misplace things like crazy. Me personally haven't lost my keys or wallet for a long time, actually, never, but I do misplace them, and finding them when they have a locator saves a lot of time, find it right away instead of searching for 10 minutes. The other day I was driving and couldn't remember if I left my wallet in my jacket which was in the trunk. So I beeped it without having to get out of the car, which reassured me. My last round, I dropped my sunglasses but luckily found them, eventually I'm gonna lose them, and they're not cheap, so I'm gonna AirTag them.

I hadn't thought about AirTag'ing the cats :-$

A cat can find a lot of hiding places in a house. If kitty's owner gets antsy and can't find him, very handy way to locate him quickly. I've found a few of my cat's hiding places. Not my cat, but lots of people put a Tile on their cats.

Oh, yeah, it sounds like a neat idea.  Wouldn't work for us, though.  Our cats have never had collars on them.  When we added a new cat we tried to put a calming collar like he had on our existing cats and they were having none of it.  Even the new cat, once the existing calming collar had expired, would not tolerate a new one.

    • Going through the list, and happen to find Sand Valley (25th) and Lawsonia (23rd) 🙂 Best public golf courses 2021-22: GOLF's Top 100 Courses You Can Play For the first time our ranking of the best public-access courses ventured outside the United States into Canada, Mexico, Bermuda and the Caribbean. Enjoy!  
    • I know this is off topic but wanted folk to know that if they install the 14.5 update it's important that they now get the 14.5.1 update which fixes some security issues with the 14.5 update: Apple releases critical iOS 14.5.1, macOS 11.3.1 security updates The iOS and iPadOS 14.5.1, macOS 11.3.1, and watchOS 7.4.1 updates contain security patches along with an App Tracking Transparency fix. Thanks.  
    • I think you’re on the right track with this. You don’t want to lift the heel just for the sake of lifting it, but you also don’t want to forcibly keep it down, either. Some people can make a good turn without lifting the lead heel and some can’t. The heel itself is not the important part.
    • I find, as an old geezer just a bit away from the edge of the mortality table, that lifting the lead heel and letting my lead knee point towards or even slightly behind the ball, gives me a bit more rotation and the act of replanting it improves my pressure shift to the lead foot. My handicap is slowing creeping downwards so it seems to be working for me or, at least, it FEELS like it's working...  😈
    • Yeah, for sure! 🙂I work in Technical Support for a living and deal with end users all day long so I understand the importance of caring for the user and the importance of sharing information in forums like this. They've dropped the ball quite a bit on this one in my eyes, but hopefully they can rebuild that trust back for those of us who are willing to stick through it with them.  I ended up buying Pro with the discount they gave me. Figured why not try it. It's version 3.0. They have a 30 day return policy and if it just ends up being crappy for whatever reason(s), I'll just return it and hope the app gets updated and stick with Live. Plus, I got a buddy who had Classic and I could give him my Live version if all things align how we want them to.
