Looking Extra Douchey with AirPods


I’ve heard people saying that wearing a pair of AirPods makes you look like a douchebag. Well, I don’t know about that, but it fits my story.

A couple of years ago I bought myself one and actually I really like it. While working, I still use the regular wired EarPods because I wear them for several hours, and the AirPods’ battery doesn’t really last that long. But they are really handy for when I go to the gym or doing dishes or cooking, for example. Not having a wire on the way is great, and its Bluetooth works flawlessly.

Anyway, another day I was walking my dog and listening to a podcast with my AirPods when a lady approached me and started asking me something. I couldn’t hear a thing she was saying. So to pause my podcast, I double tapped the right AirPod with my finger. But she didn’t know I was pausing my podcast so I could hear her. She thought I was signaling her something like, “Hey, I can’t hear you” while not removing the AirPod from my ear to give her attention.

She thought I was being rude. I tried to explain to her that I was just pausing my podcast to help her out. But everything happened so fast, and she just walked away pissed off saying she just wanted some directions.

I guess the next time, I’ll just remove the AirPod from my ear.

How to Change macOS Default Screen Shot Folder

That’s something that has always bothered me. Unfortunately there is no way to do it via a user interface. But it can be easily achieved running the following commands in the Terminal:

defaults write com.apple.screencapture location ~/Desktop/Screenshots/
killall SystemUIServer

Change the ~/Desktop/Screenshots/ with the desired path you want to save the screen shots. It is important to note that you need to create the target folder before changing the path.
