Behind the scenes at the New York Times

The Web has given rise to fast paced journalism. It becomes about speed over accuracy. 

The New York Times wrote a story about the process behind them getting and writing a story about Donald Trump’s tax returns. 

It’s awesome to see about the great lengths they go to tell a story. I’m proud to be a paying subscriber to invest in thoughtful journalism.

Digital Detoxing on Vacation

When we went on our honeymoon, we didn’t have mobile reception in Italy. At first, it kind of felt like I was going through drug detox. After some time, it was amazing. 

These little boxes start to control your mind, like a drug. Sometimes it’s good to step away.
If you have the chance to go somewhere you don’t have internet access, do it. I’m thinking about my next chance to have a digital detox.

watchOS 3, Please make my Apple Watch faster. 

If the performance improvements live up to the promise, in watchOS 3, this could be a game changing moment for the Apple Watch. I’d certainly use more apps. Hopefully this will spur more developers to write apps. Will report back. I’m installing this now.

Why Apple Wireless headphones is exciting 

There’s a bigger story coming out of Apple’s announcement last week. It’s not the iPhone 7 or even that there’s wireless headphones. It’s that those technologies allow us to live in a world where we’re always wearing out headphones. If we’re always wearing headphones, it’ll be easy to summon Siri and have it come to our assistance. Voice is the new computing platform.
