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.

    • 😂🤣 So wish you could have made it, bro. Next time!
    • I'm down. Just spit some dates at me so i can see about availability.
    • It is insane this is still being talked about. I read that people are saying he was the winner. Crazy!
    • Day 109.  Round of 16 of my club's match play.  I lost 3&2 but made a new friend.  There's this issue that happens to me at this course we played (not our home course due to availability of tee times).  It's come up a few times, but ... my second shot on the first three holes, plus my tee shot on the par-3 4th, were horrible.  Seems to happen to me I hit a few bad early shots, despite getting to the course, stretching, and warming up.  Despite this, still had sub-10 handicap baseline strokes gained: approach.  And for the first time, sub-10 handicap baseline SG:driving.  I also did some "miss the green" short game shots from what should be easy positions today... did that four times, totally inexcusable. I sank some long putts even but missed some short ones.  Putting was sub-20 handicap level today, which was cool.  Gotta pull it all together at some point again. 
    • Day 3 June 12 - Went to the driving range to get used to a new wedge. I had a wedge fitting yesterday and needed to find out if I could hit touch shots with it in addition to the full shots. 25 shots with it. Done. Then went on to work on getting through the shot with my irons. I need to get my weight forward and stay on plane through the shot better. Why is it so easy to stay on plane with my 5W? I can return that on the original shaft plane and smoke shot after shot. But why is it so much more difficult with my irons? I need to take a video and look at this. I need to look at what I'm doing with my 5W and move that over to my irons.
