"To be interesting, be interested."
(I had an aha! moment, the first time I heard this quote.)
Apple just released iOS 8, but if you’re preparing to update your iPhone or iPad then be ready to clear out enough free space. While previous iOS updates have always required around 1GB of free…
When iPhone 6 was announced, I was really hoping they’d make 32 gb the default config. Apple kinda blew it here… This is bad for users, developers and Apple (although they must make a killing @ 16 gb).
"If you buy a $6,000 mechanical watch and take care of it, you can expect it to outlive you and become a family heirloom… A Rolex purchased in 2007 is every bit as good today as it was then…
An iPhone purchased in 2007 is 85 times slower in CPU performance than an iPhone 6.”
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the value of unitasking and my appetite for technology and came across this article.
"The industry has committed itself to an arms race for my students’ attention, and if it’s me against Facebook and Apple, I lose."
There’s nothing earth shattering here but this piece carries particular weight to me given how much of a champion for technology and the free internet Clay Shirky has been. The rider vs elephant analogy is quite apt.
Once you know your exact priorities (and their exact trade-offs/compromises), the decisions become eas(ier).
Life = Economics.
