What Happened to My Favorite Icons?

Microsoft Edge

Episode 1771

Brian from Arlington, TX

Brian switched to Edge, and he can't create Icons for his shortcuts. He tried going back to Internet Explorer and he can't do it now there either. Known as Favicons, they are favorite icons for your favorite shortcuts. But recently, favicon creation has become more complicated due to sizes, bit rate, color depth, extensions, etc. But it's also gotten easier with online favicon generators. But if the website doesn't have a favicon, you end up with just an icon based on your browser.

Can I set up my iPod to just play 30 second song clips?

iPod Touch

Episode 1558

Travis from California

Travis works out a lot and would like to grab 30 second snippets to work out by. Is there an app or function that will do that? Leo says that there is no function on the iPhone or iPod, but iOS12 has a feature called "Shortcuts," so he may be able to create a shortcut to play just 30 seconds of a song. Shortcuts works by daisy chaining tasks from apps. Some headphones have a skip button, where he'd tap the button twice to skip.
