I just had two units of Apple 35W Dual USB-C Power Adapters delivered at the office earlier today. I am going to use them with a pair of HomePods mini, and freeing two ports free on the power strip. Each 35W Dual USB-C Power Adapter will supply power to a HomePod mini and a Lighting compatible devices, such as an iPhone or AirPods.
I also have a few Power Adapter Extension Cables that I kept from previous MacBook power adapters. Apple no longer include the extension cables with MacBooks for quite some times, which they now sell separately for $19.99 USD.
I also collected these extension cables whenever someone discarding their broken power adapters.
By the way, today is a pretty warm day in February; hovering around highs 70 to low 80 °Fahrenheit. The same goes for tomorrow according to weather forecast.
I have just installed a pair of HomePods mini at the office and discovered that I would need more power outlets or a different power strip. Thanks to the prong orientation of the 20 Watts USB-C Power Adapter.
I have a Dual USB-C Port Power Adapter, which I now use to power up one of the HomePods mini; no, it cannot power two HomePods mini. I use the second port for a Apple Lighting cable.
Last week during my daily commute, I was listening to “Hair Nation” channel on SiriusXM radio. Bon Jovi song was playing and the host mentioned how great the “New Jersey” album was. So I went to Amazon.com and found a sealed copy of 2014 reissue deluxe edition of the album. Well it arrived today and I took it home. Then I realized that I do not have one single optical disc player in the house. I’ll have to take the CD back to the office to add it into my digital library.
On other news, I finished updating my Apple TV and HomePod minis at home. Apparently,
I’m going to try it out this weekend. I am so tempted in getting a pair of new HomePods.
I finally got around to installing Apple TV and HomePod mini software updates (16.3) today. The latest update enables Humidity and Temperature Sensors in HomePod mini; which are also enabled in HomePod 2nd Generation.
Update: one HomePod mini is still installing the update. I am going to leave it running and check back tomorrow.
Spent a lot on the road today, and got stuck on I-405 for quite a bit. Traffic was pretty bad in the evening. Then I finished setting up an M2 MacBook Air.
Still thinking about what configuration of M2 MacBook Pro I would get.
By the way, I’m interested in getting HomePod 2nd generation. I would need to get two of them for proper stereo pairing. I purchased 2 original HomePods when they were on sale. One of them stopped working a few month ago. I would have to wait until the HomePod is on sale again.
