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 find the discussion around the Apple Watch way more interesting than the watch itself.
(I don’t have a significant urge to have any device around my wrist but then again no one needed smartphones in 2006)
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.
He nails it here.
Once you know your exact priorities (and their exact trade-offs/compromises), the decisions become eas(ier).
Life = Economics.

Epic three part interview with Kevin Kelly, co-founder of Wired (link).
I remember listening to this on a drive to Toronto and not being able to sleep that night because I was so inspired. Kevin Kelly is truly an enlightened individual. Outstanding stuff.
