Some great things come in small packages Sometimes the simplest solution is right in front of you Shall we play a game?

A Simple Test

What it felt like lugging a laptop around again. Like a trip to the past. This week I decided to run a quick litmus test while on a quick business trip: leave the iPad at home, and bring the laptop (12″ Macbook) instead. Of course, the iPhone always is with me, but this was going back … Continue reading A Simple Test

I’m From the Future

Both my wife and I were participating in the Victoria 70.3 Ironman, … Continue reading Signing a Letter

Every few years I experiment with a complete change of my day to day workflow; sometimes it involves radical changes to the software I’m using, others it’s a shake up of the hardware and my everyday carry to accomplish more with my personal and work computing. I’ve even gone “all in” on iOS before — using just … Continue reading The iPad Pro Experiment
