Part of me thinks this is elegant, beautiful and cool. Part of me is screaming, “Wait. What?! You want me to regularly put my phone on a rock!?! Do you realize how clumsy I am?!?! That’s basically inviting me to smash the front of my phone.”
YMMV. I’m extra clumsy and extra anxious.
But as much as part of me really wants to, I can get past my anxiety to spend $25.
@joelmw@Kyeh My sister-in-law got new quartz (or granite, I forget) kitchen countertops and they looked lovely. One day, her husband unintentionally set down a rinsed-out coffee mug just a little too hard and – unbeknownst to him – cracked the entire “circle” at the very base of the mug. He put that mug in their (also new) dishwasher, started it up, and went about his day. Turned out that the ceramic circle fell away from the mug, broke up a little bit, and its pieces ended up jamming the mechanism (or whatever) which grinds up food and they had to get a very expensive dishwasher repair. I now feel a tiny bit of fear every time I hear my wife loudly set a mug on our quartz counter.
@andymand@joelmw@Kyeh When shopping for a dishwasher, an important question is “How hard is it to remove the pump screen for cleaning?” If the answer is “You never need to do that”, look at a different model becase it doesn’t have one.
@djslack Bought it and can confirm that it is WAY finicky. Like to the point of being unusable. If I don’t remove my case I have about a 75% chance of waking up to an uncharged phone. With the case removed it is 50/50. I went back to my MagSafe charger.
PSA: I bought the 2 pack Logitech fancy wireless charges a while back here and they worked. Okish. Except now one of them started heating up on the bottom and burned a hole in my leather top night stand. I was away for a few days due to birth, glad my house and children didn’t burn down.
Lesson learned, put them on a fire proof backing and don’t trust these things.
@superpope It’s a little on the edge in terms of standard rhetorical practice, I agree (good leitwort is a beautiful thing), but “seem” and “look” are quite functional synonyms, so it works. It’s rocky (heh), but it works.
