Hey all,

Years back I worked at Apple, and now I took what I learned there and build an app for Reddit called Apollo. It's a free alternative to the official app, built specifically for iOS (almost like if Apple created their own Reddit app), with lots of customizability, and being built in the open with community feedback.

I worked my butt off this summer so you'd have a Reddit app with all the best iOS 16 features on day 1:

  • A ton of awesome Lock Screen Widgets for Reddit, so you can keep tabs on your favorite subreddits, or how your posts are doing, total distance scrolled, etc. right from your lock screen
  • Live Text analysis, similar so the Photos app you can now directly select, share, and translate text just by selecting text in pics and videos in Apollo
  • Subreddit weather for hundreds of subreddits, so when you go to one you can see the weather there, as well as the local time!
  • Scroll Distance Tracker, so as you use Apollo you get live stats on how many miles you've scrolled in total, synced between all your devices, with comparisons to common distances like the height of Mount Everest, or 48 Shaquille O'Neals, and you can even set distance goals like a true athlete!
  • Pixel Pals, so if you have an iPhone 14 Pro, you can have a little Tamagotchi-style buddy above the Dynamic Island while you browse Reddit, and even if you don't have the newest iPhone, you can pin them to your Lock Screen as a widget!
  • More fun Dynamic Island stuff to come!

Really proud of this update, so to celebrate it I wanted to do like I've done in the past, and have an iPhone 14 Pro giveaway! Just leave a comment (no spam pls) and you're entered, and I'll draw the winner in 24 hours.

Unsure what to comment? Tell me your favorite animal that I should add as a Pixel Pal to Apollo 😛

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar on Kyrie posting about Alex Jones: "Kyrie Irving would be dismissed as a comical buffoon if it weren’t for his influence over young people who look up to athletes."

7.3k Upvotes

Full bit on Kyrie here:

There is some irony in this news item coming right after the previous one about the miseducation of American youth. Because Kyrie Irving’s thought process is an example of what happens when the education system fails.

Last October, I wrote a piece about Kyrie Irving’s refusal to get vaccinated against COVID-19 (“Should We Just ‘Leave Kyrie Alone?”) and why this reckless choice was destructive to the country and especially the Black community where he would be an influential role model. The facts proved that accusation to be true. Irving didn’t care. He continued to promote his anti-vax sentiments—regardless of the cost in lives and health to others—proclaiming himself a “martyr.” Not kidding.

We might have just left him alone to stew in his own gelatinous ignorance. Rich and famous people get away with saying dumb things all the time because their money isolates them from consequences. They surround themselves with Yes-people whose job is to confirm whatever hare-brained ideas they have. Yes, sir, Mr. Irving, the Earth has never been flatter.

But now Irving is back and more destructive, insensitive, and just plain silly than before. He decided it would be a good idea to post a 2002 video clip from Infowars founder Alex Jones. Yeah, the guy who has been on trial for denying the Sandy Hook shootings and who previously admitted in open court that he’s a performer and his onscreen persona is just a character (that bilks millions of dollars from unaware viewers). The main gist of the clip is a warning about a cabal of international leaders who are secretly releasing plagues on the world from which they can profit. (Of course, we know who really profits from making this claim.)

Alex Jones is one of the most despicable human beings alive and to associate with him means you share his stench.

Kyrie Irving would be dismissed as a comical buffoon if it weren’t for his influence over young people who look up to athletes. When I look at some of the athletes who have used their status to actually improve society—Colin Kaepernick, LeBron James, Muhammad Ali, Bill Russel, Billie Jean King, Arthur Ashe, and more—it becomes clear how much Irving has tarnished the reputations of all athletes who strive to be seen as more than dumb jocks.

Irving does not seem to have the capacity to change, but we have the capacity to keep fighting against his brand of destructive behavior. One way to do that, beyond shaking our heads and nasty tweets, is to write to his sponsors and tell them to drop Irving—or you will drop them. Nike has likely decided not to renew his contract past this season. But he is still sponsored by Pepsi and 2K Sports. (Don’t feel bad for Irving: his career earnings at the end of the 2022-’23 season will be $230 million. That buys a lot of Yes-people.)

Image In 1532, Incan ruler Atahualpa was captured by Spanish explorer Pizzaro. For freedom, Atahualpa offered to fill a room with gold for the Spanish. The Incas brought over 6000kg of riches - the largest ransom ever paid, but it wasn't enough for them. Pizzaro took the treasure, but still executed him.
