How to use your Apple Watch — and third-party apps — on an airplane

How to use your Apple Watch — and third-party apps — on an airplane

When you turn your iPhone into Airplane mode, it disconnects from your Watch. Here's how to fix it.

When I was flying last week, I discovered that when I put my iPhone into Airplane mode, it would — obviously — disconnect from Bluetooth and Wi-Fi signals, which meant also disabling its connection to the Apple Watch.

Airplane mode exists because the FAA requires that you block cell signals to prevent any signal interference with the plane's navigation systems, but Bluetooth has been legal on planes since late 2013 — and it just so happens to be the primary technology the Watch uses to connect to your iPhone. If you don't want to lose access to your Watch's third-party apps when it's time to go up into the sky, here's what you need to do.

NSFW: Microsoft doesn't suck, and you don't have to hate it

NSFW: Microsoft doesn't suck, and you don't have to hate it

Microsoft's stumbles with Windows in recent years has created millions of new Mac users. But that doesn't mean you should turn your back on Microsoft.

About half the people I sell Macs to in my weekend job at an Apple retailer are new to the Mac platform: They're PC users looking to make the switch. And lots of them are fed up with Windows. But honestly, as much as I support Apple, I think some of my customers are turning their back on Microsoft at their peril — because Microsoft still does a lot of things right and continues to do a lot of things right.

In pursuit of building blocks and the Big Idea

In pursuit of building blocks and the Big Idea

Far more often than not, the big idea is an abject failure.

When we think about building the future, we rarely stumble across the perfect path to do so on the first try. Often, we grasp at perceived futures — ways we expect our world to change and improve — but it's very seldom the best way to build our actual future.

This isn't an admonishment to never strive to create the next big thing; nor is it a bleakly worded yet heartfelt kick in the pants encouraging you to reach for the stars.

You should always reach for the stars and always strive to create the next big thing. But if you hope to succeed, your best guides are those who have gone before you — and failed.
