iPhone X Camera Review: Guatemala
Hah. This is should come to no surprise. I sub vocalize as I read, so listening is the same as reading but I can turn up the speed and do so without keeping my eyes in a book. 👍🏻
After all, grown-ups can’t exchange a list of books they’ve read for a free personal pan pizza.
I'm excited for the return of this particular piece, I've always enjoyed what people carry with them on a regular basis.
The return of What’s in your bag? We’re going to splay out all the gear that Verge writers and friends of the Verge actually bother to carry around every day. (Hint: it’s only the good stuff, and there’s more of it than you might think.)
One of the rules we have is when something gets to a boiling point, go to video and chat it out
AT A GLANCE
Create goals that are meaningful to you—not ones meant to impress or help you compete with others.
Write out your goals, then share them with a friend or on social media.
Avoid “goal competition” by tackling one at a time.
The tools he uses to stay productive — daily rituals, removing inefficiencies, and creating a personal ecosystem — allow him to do that.
I second this idea
(he listens primarily to nonfiction), and says the speed helps him focus on the material, instead of giving him the space to daydream or wander.
What's the difference between this and an iPad Pro with Smart Keyboard, or Brydge, or Canvas (by Twelve South)?
I am taking about a laptop that only runs iPad apps, including the many productivity and creativity apps that have been built for that tablet.
So you’ll be able to tie into the Workflow app and its already great ecosystem of automation. In OmniFocus, imagine the possibilities that open up when you can trigger a workflow just by checking something off!
Fussy coffee, dialed in to its final form.
I have dinner with my wife, not my work. I go to sleep with my wife, not my work. First thing in the morning,
But for the average consumer, and even pros on less demanding shoots, the Mavic Pro is the new gold standard, a combination of portability and power which leaves the rest of the competition far behind.
100% agreed. I have an exercise calendar that I update every month, keeps me honest.
The one productivity tip you’d recommend
Schedule lunch and workout time. If your schedule tends to get packed, you’ll be bummed that you didn’t prioritize some you-time.
This process can never be perfect, but can it be good enough?
Oh hell yes it can.
Once a week I get this remark.
but what always gets remarked upon is the card’s weight.
“You feel smart with this card,” says Kelly, describing the image of the first Sapphire card. “You’re ‘in the k
Iconic brands don’t zig-zag. They move forward with seemingly inexorable momentum. Their evolutions often feel inevitable, not surprising. Weak brands move like ping-pong balls; strong brands move like bowling balls. A new Rolex needs to look like a Rolex. A Leica needs to look like a Leica. A new Coca-Cola bottle needs to look like a Coca-Cola bottle.
Open an image and then tap the Details button or just scroll. You’ll see the people Photos has identified as being in the photo, the location where the photo was taken (with an address, a map, and an option to show other photos taken nearby), a set of Memories related somehow to the contents of your photo, and even a link to see all the photos taken on that particular day.
Writing helps eliminate “it sounded good in my head” by forcing your hand; brains forgive fuzzy abstractions, prose does not.
“Why am I doing my job the way I do it?” and “How might our company find new opportunities?”
Speak and the AirPods will detect the vibration of your voice, triggering a noise-canceling effect that will home in on your voice to distinguish it from ambient sound.
AirPods use Bluetooth for their connection. Bluetooth headphones have historically suffered from a conga line of connectivity problems: onerous pairing, dropped connections, crappy sound. Apple is confident it’s solved them all with that W1 chip. “As you can imagine, by developing our own Bluetooth chip and controlling both ends of the pairing process there’s a lot of magic we can do,” Ternus says. “We use a Bluetooth connection, but cover it in a lot of secret sauce.”
You need to pair down the notifications that come to your Watch. You must. Far too many have left the platform due to "notification fatigue".
Surprise, surprise. Almost every interviewee said they don't listen to music while they run, especially so when racing.
Don’t wait for someone to tell you what specific things you need to do. Ask, or look for the problems you’re most likely to run into, identify the tools you need to fix those problems, and then either get those tools or make them.
This rabbit hole of a show knows no bounds.
Bingo. How does the Internet of Things continue to run when you don't pay an ongoing service fee. Nest Aware, sure. What about SmartThings by Samsung or one of the hundreds of other devices?
How are those costs going to be recaptured when you’re paying a one-time fee for the hardware?
Always nice to see the gear someone uses.
There's something to this. When I regularly go above and beyond for a client, they begin to expect that level of service. That might not be best for me or for the company.
"You work hard on that machine for an hour, and that work can be erased with five minutes of eating afterward," Hall added. A single slice of pizza, for example, could undo the benefit of an hour's workout. So could a cafe mocha or an ice cream cone.
After you finish last night's #gameofthrones, read this
“Snapchat is the future of TV,” says Paige Crai
“There’s no menu, so you can’t just order, you know, a martini,” the developer says, as if I would ever. “You tell the bartender three adjectives, and he’ll customize a drink for you accordingly. It’s great. It’s creative! I’ve been thinking about my adjectives all day.”
If that doesn't describe the culture of Silicon Valley, I don't know what will.
While the icon is a colorful doorway into the Instagram app, once inside the app, we believe the color should come directly from the community’s photos and videos. We stripped the color and noise from surfaces where people’s content should take center stage, and boosted color on other surfaces like sign up flows and home screens.
Employees, both current and former, say information of all kinds is typically shared on a need-to-know basis. One of the reasons Spiegel likes walking meetings along the boardwalk is that they’re more private, even though they’re in public — it’s hard to snoop on someone’s conversation when they’re walking amid throngs of people.
The iPad Pro has adjusted my workflow in more ways than one. Sinofsky nails a few of them here.
Different apps is like having two devices/second screen.
It's far too early to consider this a flop considering how many units have been sold. I do believe gen 2 will be the cement for the history of the product. If gen 2 is a small improvement over gen 1, we have a problem.
I love when new analogies are born like this, it really makes me think about how things are and how things are going.
This is a great mindset to stand by when wondering when it's time to move on from a project
Knowing when to move on is a tricky balance that I still haven’t mastered, but a good rule is to move on once you’re no longer motivated or able to do great work for a project.
I sat down on my couch and began plugging away the first chapter, and noticed that it took 17 minutes of nonstop of reading to tip over to the 2% mark. Doing some quick mental math, I calculated that the whole book would be 27 hours of solid, uninterrupted reading.
We created positive ROI marketing campaigns, mass-manufactured a sophisticated hardware device, and built a cloud video service that processed more incoming video than YouTube.
David Carr isn’t the only deceased person who continues to be a guiding light for me. My mother, who died last March, is still saved as a favorite on my iPhone, and I imagine will be there forever.
I still follow her on Facebook. Her emails are still saved in my inbox (though I feel guilty for having not replied to some), as is a video she sent me two Christmases ago explaining how to make her famous chocolate cake.
Thankfully, because of that front-facing camera, I get to scroll through pictures of her that she sent over the years.
