Misuse of Eastern Ideas
I don’t love this post from Amy Olberding, because I don’t think it applies s neatly to Marie Kondo as it does to the examples of Sun Tzu in the article (which is misused and the analysis is spot on). With Kondo it is a bit different but bordering on stupidity at this point, that […]
Reasons Why Men Should Carry a Purse
I mean you can just carry a bag, but for the love of everything don’t call it a man-purse or a murse. There’s just no need. You know what’s a good name: ‘hand bag’.
Cutting the Five Tech Giants
Kashmir Hill on the experience: I’ve just traded one huge corporation seeking to monetize my searches for another, less competent one. I think that’s astute and something most people miss when they try to cut out too many of the big companies. It’s fair to say that you should cut out Google and Facebook as […]
Changing my Coffee Routine & Setup
Nope, not Aeropress, that would be funny though.

Let’s make iPad notes look pretty again.
GORUCK Spring Cleaning Sale
Some good deals on select items from GORUCK in their Spring Cleaning Sale. The Kid Ruck is down to $125, which makes it a good buy again. Even better is the GR2, which is back down to its old price of $395 — so if you want the best large sized travel backpack, I’d jump […]

SA Profile, carrying five devices when one bagging, and random shit I have thought about over my years in business.
Snack Pick of the Week — 2/11/19
I’m traveling this week, so I’ll give my pick to the best travel snack I’ve found which isn’t something I necessarily would rate as the best under any other circumstance. That is Jack Links Beef Jerky, Peppered flavor.

Allow me to talk more about keyboards, and assure you that iPads still work great no matter where I work.
Screen recording scamalytics face App Store ban
Zack Whittaker: Apple is telling app developers to remove or properly disclose their use of analytics code that allows them to record how a user interacts with their iPhone apps — or face removal from the app store, TechCrunch can confirm.
Some iPhone apps are secretly recording your screen
Michael Grothaus: Using Glassbox’s session reply technology, app makers can see every tap and swipe you make. Keystrokes are also recorded and any text you write is captured as well, though text inputs are usually masked so as to hide sensitive information like credit card or passport numbers. However, TechCrunch found that not all apps […]

I thought a Mac might suck me back in, until I used to for a few days.
A New Report on Internet Usage
Matthew Hughes: That figure sounds like a lot, but it’s absolutely astronomical when spread across an entire year. It equates to more than 100 days of online time every year for every Internet user. That’s more than 27 percent of every year.
New Study On Facebook Use
Nicole Karlis, reporting on the new study: As the researchers state: “We find little evidence to support the hypothesis suggested by prior work that Facebook might be more beneficial for ‘active’ users—for example, users who regularly comment on pictures and posts from friends and family instead of just scrolling through their news feeds.” The whole […]
