I’ve used and loved an Ember Mug for a couple years and never felt the need to pair it with the companion app. But, the battery has been acting up lately so I thought I’d check it with the app. I can’t pair the mug with my phone without creating an “Ember account”. Why in god’s name do I need an online account just to check the battery level in my coffee mug?
Early this year I wrote “Breakage” on Write.as. Many of the links on that post are broken. I hate myself.
I’m not officially leaving or anything, but I have pinned a “Be back at __” post and downloaded my Twitter archive. Feels like something is happening.
