Apple's new magic keyboards. My old extended keyboard died so I had to get a new one.

After attempting to cope with a cheap wired Microsoft keyboard, I caved in and shelled out for a new wireless extended "magic keyboard". I didn't realise the magic part referred to you wouldn't get full functionality (including bluetooth pairing) unless you upgrade to Sierra.

Chrome, which I used to like as my first choice browser until I ran into this issue: https://discourse.pi-hole.net/t/disable-async-dns-resolver-in-google-chrome/9500

It's been at least 6 years since I last used Firefox full time and it's been great so far. It quite literally flies on my 2013 MacBook Air.

I don’t know if it’s bad markup, Firefox, or “Chrome is the new IE6” syndrome (when IE6 was the standard, not the nuisance)

Safari is the most likely to barf on a site in my experience...

Hey, we don't need that kind of smug sarcasm from you socialist Scandinavians! (I know, but the 'Murican who'd say that has no idea about Scandinavia.)

What do you mean, Denmark is not the capital of Amsterdam?
