BLK Dot Coffee (3 Irvine locations:  Irvine Spectrum, The Marketplace, Google Center)

BLK Dot Coffee is a great new coffee spot, offering delicious variations of classic coffee drinks — including their popular “slow-drip Vietnamese craft iced coffee.”

There are three Irvine shops:  One is at the far end of the Irvine Spectrum, next to Target; there is also a Tustin Marketplace site, near the movie theatre; and, the third location is at the Google Center near Jamboree and MacArthur.

BLK Dot Coffee is open from 6:30am-8pm Monday through Thursday, 6:30am-9pm on Friday & Saturday, and 7am-8pm on Sunday.  For more information, check out their website by clicking here.


Weekend iPhone Tip by Jake Jacobs

Change the volume of the dictation prompt

When I found my dictation prompt beep was too loud, I tried changing the ringer volume. But that didn’t change the beep volume.  The way to do it is to first start dictation by tapping the mic button at the bottom of the keyboard and then adjusting the volume buttons on the left side of the iPhone while in dictation mode.

This also applies to other apps—built-in or third party—that generate sounds.  When an app is running, the volume button usually adjusts the speaker volume for that app.
