Hi, I'm Dominik Schwind, friend of the internet. Here is /now.

There are a couple of ways you can follow me around on the internet. The prefered way would probably be with a feed reader - here is my RSS feed.

If you need more direct access, you can follow me here with Mastodon or similar sites: @dominik@nona.social. You can also follow this blog via @dominik@lostfocus.de.

You can charge the remote via Lightning cables. There is a Lightning-to-USB cable in the box. The Apple TV has no normal USB port, but it does have an USB-C port. I’ll just jam the cable in there to charge it?

I plugged a network cable into the proper port. I switched on the Apple TV. It wants me to connect to a wireless network, which it will not use later on.

All my passwords are generated by 1Password and are really long. Imagine my joy having to put them in with that silly touch-screen remote.

When you have a German iTunes account, you have German Siri and you will have to like it.

After about an hour I have not found a single thing that works better on this than on the spectacularly bad SmartTV software that comes with my TV.

And there is no Amazon bloody Prime on this, either.
