Your Phone As Awesome As Ever

We’ve got these amazing pocket computers that no longer amaze us like they used to. When iPhones were the hot new thing – wow! – every time one came out, people literally lined up in the street to buy one. That phase faded. But next week, Apple might be wowing people again.

Using Ulysses For Better Blogging

If writing about a writing app is too meta, then call me guilty. I’m still in my honeymoon phase using my newest tool – Ulysses. Switching to it has been like going from a hammer to a nail gun! It’s a great app for blogging if you’re on WordPress, Medium, and now Ghost! So I want to share a little how I’m currently using it.

Ulysses The Right Tool For The Write Job

When you’ve got to get work done, it’s great when you have the right tool and super frustrating when you don’t. What’s more awesome is when you can have high quality tools that help you the best. I think I’ve found such a tool for writing: Ulysses.

Finding Feedly Again

You know what it’s like to discover something new. But sometimes, it’s more interesting to rediscover something old so that it’s new again – like nostalgia being fulfilled, or an old friend who returns to take a new adventure with you.

Twitter As Anti Facebook

A simple little thought popped into my gray matter the other day. Instead of abandoning all social-media because it’s all mania, how about I promote Twitter as the single best alternative to Facebook?

Footloose And Facebook Free

Today is the day that my Facebook account info is permanentlydeleted. This ends my fourth and shortest round of Facebooking. And, dare I say, it is my final round. No more Zuckerberg productions for me.

Are App Subscriptions Suboptimal?

Like death by a thousand cuts, nobody likes to feel nickeled and dimed by numerous subscription payments seeping from their bank account every single month. I wrote against subs recently. Today, I’m writing for subs.

A Daily Writing Habit

A few months back, I found myself in unusual circumstances. I was able to get a lot of writing done. And it led me to schedule many blog posts. I even found my brain more apt to write most of the time – my writing muscles were flexed. Then life kinda happened. Now I’m struggling to find time, make time, to type stuff up.

A Better Instagram Called Bokeh

Recently, I deleted Instagram and lamented its downturn from photo sharing app to social-mania app. But this week I discovered a new Instagram-like photo-social app that’s got key core values. It’s in Kickstarter, and I am a backer!

My iPhone Became My Wallet

Years ago, I carried an iPod touch and a feature phone until I finally replaced them with just an iPhone. Weeks ago, it hit me: why am I carrying my iPhone and my wallet separately yet often together inside my jacket pocket? That’s when I decided to try a wallet case.

Subtracting Subscriptions

Have you noticed how many subscription services there are these days? There’s a thing called “Subscription Fatigue” now. It’s where you feel nickeled and dimed to oblivion. Like a continual dripping of water that wears away stone, you can’t take any more subs. And I don’t want a single one.

Right now, Avengers End Game

World Without Mind Review

Franklin Foer wrote a book called, World Without Mind: The Existential Threat of Big Tech. I read it last week and want to share a few thoughts about it. If you use Facebook, Google, or Amazon (ok, so like everybody), then you might wanna read this.

More Star Wars Saga Please

Happy #StarWarsDay! At last, we come to it again. May 4th.
Star Wars fans can geek out today! Especially this year, because in December we get the last movie in the main canon of the Star Wars saga! But really, I wish there would be more. Why must a saga come to an end?

Instagram Was good Until It Wasn't

Do you remember back when Instagram first came out? It was not social-focused like it is today. It was photo-focused. And I totally miss that.
