## Perfect π

Got an iPhone? Bring up the Control Center by swiping up from the bottom of the screen. At the bottom center right of the Control Center, click the icon for the Calculator. Or shortcut these first two steps by simply telling Siri, “Run Calculator.” With the Calculator onscreen, turn the device to landscape view to access the scientific calculator. Near the center of the bottom of the scientific calculator display, click the π button. The scientific calculator displays the value of pi rounded to 16 significant digits: 3.141592653589793. Without clearing the calculator, turn the device to portrait view; the simple calculator now displays the value of pi rounded to 9 significant digits: 3.14159265. Or shortcut all of these steps by asking Siri, “What is the value of pi?” — via Wolfram Alpha, to 29 significant digits: 3.1415926535897932384626433832. Or let Siri take it out farther by asking something like, “What are the first 240 digits of pi?”

## A Never-Quitting Song

A good lead from a good friend, music that goes on and on long after the video watches it off into the horizon, like a true love never ceasing. I may have only one out of every twenty channels still on upstairs since my shenanigans, but one of those sounds a lot like this. Or maybe like the natural log of negative one, divided by this . . . .
