Home sweet home (screen) …again 📱

I’ve seen a ton of iOS home screens floating around lately and it’s been a few months (and one new phone) since I last shared mine, so I figured it was time to show how much things have changed.

Jim Cheung joins Scott Snyder for Justice League relaunch

Rich Johnston, writing for Bleeding Cool:

Jim Cheung is the man to go to when revealing new line-ups of comics, it seems. Whether Marvel’s Fresh Starts or Nows – or in this case his new run with Scott Snyder on Justice League, to be relaunched with a new issue 1 to follow Snyder’s Metal and No Justice mini-series. Which is another impressive land grab for DC, pulling Cheung from Marvel’s contracts.

It’s a weird feeling, as a longtime Marvel fan, to see all the artists and writers that I’ve grown to love over their time with the Avengers, Spider-Man, and more suddenly start doing work for DC.

I’ve always followed the rule that you should follow the creators whose work you enjoy rather than the characters themselves and Jim Cheung has been one of my favorite artists for the last ten or so years with his work on Young Avengers and more.

A Justice League book by Snyder and Cheung sounds like a dream, so… I guess I’m a DC fan now?

Because I couldn’t simply set up my blog on WordPress and leave it alone, I’m playing around with (and considering a move to) Blot.

This is not a drill. ComiXology is running an Ed Brubaker sale. Crime noir fans, drop what you’re doing and check it out. 📚

Excited to see the Micro.blog team launching the @monday podcast. I haven’t had a chance to listen yet but can’t wait to check it out.

If you’re in the market to save some serious dough on comics, ComiXology is running a huge sale on some recent Marvel trades including the entire runs of Generations, Secret Empire, and Vision, plus volumes of Defenders, Moon Knight and more for one dollar each. 📚

Android Wear may be rebranded as Wear OS

Taylor Kerns, writing for Android Police:

Android Wear may be changing its image, according to a Reddit post by user H3x0n. Per the post, during the setup of an Android Wear watch (the post didn’t specify which), H3x0n was greeted with both a new icon and an unfamiliar name for the operating system.

This makes complete sense, especially with the recent conversion from Android Pay to Google Pay. With less and less of a reliance on Android itself and more on the actual Wear app, available on both iOS and Android, the original name just doesn’t hold up anymore.

My hope, as I’ve already mentioned, is that this isn’t just a change in name but also a big change in update frequency for the platform, including a nice juicy update at I/O this year. Maybe even a Pixel watch?

We can dream.

Since yesterday afternoon, I’ve probably put between eight to ten hours into Breath of the Wild. Needless to say, things are going a lot better this time around and I’m really enjoying my time with it. 🕹️

I really didn’t like Breath of the Wild for a variety of reasons back when it was first released but today I’m giving it another shot and starting a new playthrough. 🕹️

Naturally the only major issue I’m having with Android P is verifying my Google Pay info, which I use daily. Looks like it’s back to Oreo until they announce the public beta in May.

I’ve made it 24 hours. It might be time to flash Android P.
