It’s particularly confusing to me that Apple’s own Magic Mouse isn’t properly supported on iPadOS 13.4. Sure, the device connects and offers basic functionality but many of the gestures don’t work unfortunately.
As is the case with stuff like this, Apple announces a new iPad Pro just days after I buy one. All jokes aside, I’m really happy with the one I have. I may consider grabbing that new Magic Keyboard though, which conveniently supports the previous gen Pro.
Mixer launches updated homepage, improved clips, notification experiences
Mixer released a few changes to its platform today, including a redesigned homepage, ad breaks, and higher quality emotes. The initiative comes about half a year after the platform pinned down popular content creators shroud and Ninja for exclusive streaming rights deals.
Some great quality of life changes and major updates to the platform. I’ve thought Mixer’s overall design was solid for a while, this refines what was working before.
The new homepage design doesn’t reinvent the wheel but does put emphasis on featured creators in a unique way. Hopefully this will surface a number of creators that weren’t getting attention before. I love the look of the big featured player at the top of the screen in relation to the creator’s name, title, etc and the carousel of other streams below it is nice.
The spacing between the streams and the categories are nice, it’s easy to scan through while looking for something to watch and adding in better clips support and clearer notifications is a big help too.

I splurged a bit this weekend and grabbed a new iPad Pro to replace my aging Air 2. Switching over from my old one was crazy simple and I’ve already been able to set up the repo for my blog. If you’re reading this, It means I got posting to work too!
I’m really excited for this week’s comics. Specifically Strange Adventures #1 by King, Gerads, and Shaner, Mirka Andolfo’s Mercy #1, and Jorge Jimenez joining James Tynion on Batman with this week’s issue #90.
I’ve been on the hunt for a new MMO to play recently and have had a hard time finding one that stuck. After having it in my Steam library for years, I’ve finally given Elder Scrolls Online a spin. With the rich story, open-world gameplay, and lack of monthly fee (if you choose), it’s a wonder I waited so long to finally give it a go.
Marvel announces new Silk series by Goo and Miyazawa
Cindy Moon is getting another day in the sun. Marvel has announced a new ongoing series for Spider-Man spin-off character Silk. The series will be written by novelist and first-time comics writer Maurene Goo, and illustrated by Takeshi Miyazawa (Spider-Gwen: Ghost-Spider, Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane), with the first issue of the series sporting a cover by Stonehouse.
Great to see the character back, and being written by a Korean American woman no less. I’ve always dug Silk from her appearances in ASM and I’m really hoping this new series helps her further carve her own path, away from the mainline Spider-Man stories.
It also doesn’t hurt that Takeshi Miyazawa’s on the book. As I’ve mentioned a dozen times before, I’ve been a huge fan of his work since Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane.
