Time once again for the 52-week blogging challenge. Today's prompt is "New." A couple of weeks ago I talked about "old and new."

So...what's new, pussycat?

There's not much new in my world. Same ol' same ol'. I'm seriously thinking about getting a new computer but the hassle of switching everything over is dissuading me.

I do have a new iPhone Xs. I love it. And Apple made it very easy to switch everything over. The only thing I had trouble with was music (I have a lot of music on my phone). I finally found that the "sync music" setting had been deselected somehow. When I selected it, my music loaded onto my new phone just fine. And speaking of music, when you don't use earbuds or any other kind of headphones, the music coming just from the phone is amazing in how good it sounds.

The biggest problem I have with the iPhone Xs is sometimes the facial recognition (Face ID) doesn't want to work the first time. To unlock the phone (which has no "home" button), you swipe up. Then the Face ID is supposed to unlock it. When it works, it works great. But sometimes it doesn't, especially in low-light conditions. I have, at times, just given up and typed in my password.

I think for the XI (or whatever they call their next generation iPhone), there should be an low-power IR emitter on the front so the Face ID works in low or no-light conditions.

What's new in your life? Let me know in the comments below.
