After extensive testing, we’ve discovered that in very rare cases, some Philips Hue 40 Watt outdoor power supply units (PSU) may become damaged due to water leakage and pose a safety risk if touched in wet conditions.
This seems … not great, but I am still interested in putting some of these out front of our house at some point.
iCloud Photos and My Photo Stream can help you get your photos on your Apple devices and on your PC. What’s the difference between them? Learn more about both features.
Back in its day, I always found Photo Stream a little confusing; iCloud Photos makes way more sense, and has been solid for years. However, this feature still exists, at least for most people.
Interestingly, it seems that Apple has done away with Photo Stream, at least for new accounts, according to a footnote on this page:
If you recently created your Apple ID, My Photo Stream might not be available. Use iCloud Photos to keep your photos and videos in iCloud.

I just got done with a Twitch stream unboxing the iPhone 12 Pro clear case, MagSafe charger and a new USB-C charger. The video will be up for several days, if you want to see these things in action.

I have big plans for my Twitch channel, so if you aren’t following it yet, now is the time.
