Ivy Sheppard

Monday, November 27th, 2017

As I was bumming around watching videos of people playing old time at festivals (my current top #1 hobby), I came across Bill Birchfield & Ivy Sheppard:

And a fun little showcase event with a bunch of banjo players showcasing different styles:

Turns out Ivy was just recently running for mayor of Mt Airy, NC, which I think it super cool (she’s my exact same age). Looks like she lost though. :(

2017 Chevy Tahoe Doesn’t Charge iPhone X

Monday, November 20th, 2017

I just bought a 2017 Chevy Tahoe. It was a very minor selling point, but I had also ordered an iPhone X and knew it had wireless charging. The Tahoe had a wireless charging pad! Cool!


Things get messy with General Motors brands, though as the maker starting including wireless chargers in its 2017 model line but those pads do not Qi standards. As such, only the following models at this time support wireless charging on the iPhone 8 and iPhone X.

… the list includes the 2018 Chevrolet Tahoe.

Dammit. I might have considered the 2018 (would have extended our warranty as well), but was told the 2017 was exactly the same.
