When the latest (as of this writing) iPad Pro hardware and iPad OS come together, it creates a computer that isn't a computer, the most personal post-PC PC out there. However you define it, it’s great. I find myself reaching for my iPad more often than a MacBook or any other “real” computer. It's the best computing device I've ever used. There are still things a laptop or desktop PC is better for, but that list continues to get shorter.
There are two things that I wanted to get rid of on my iMac: The notice about Catalina, and the infuriating red dot. At its simplest level, this appears to require just two Terminal commands.
So what’s the verdict: have I become more focused? I filed this article very late, which probably answers that question. But there’s no denying that Eyal’s book is a refreshing antidote to the advice that we should all be buying flip phones and digital detoxing. The route to a healthier relationship with technology isn’t necessarily going cold turkey; it’s learning moderation and good habits.
I wish I can bookmark specific pages in Apple Music. I wish I can add radio stations to my library. I wish Beats 1 radio shows are available as podcasts.
Oh and, of course, peace on Earth and freedom for all.
Thanks for reading.
