A Millennials Computer

1 Comment 🕔12:21, 28.Nov 2010

My proclivities toward only purchasing Apple equipment aside, the MacBook Air screams Gen Y. Ignoring the fact that studies show Millennials have a greater tendency to remain brand loyal and are therefore willing to pay more for products they feel are ecofriendly and sensible, the MacBook Air is essentially built to meet their discrete requirements. Many will have you believe the MacBook Air is built with the business traveler in mind, and this very well might

Optimal Number of Monitors to Increase Productivity?

0 Comments 🕔11:58, 19.Nov 2010

In my last post, I explained how one of my monitors temporarily went belly-up. Up until that point, I was running a 3-monitor setup using Apple Cinema Displays. My rationale for having a triple-monitor setup was simple; boost productivity. I felt I was more productive. I was wrong. While I was repairing one of the three monitors, it forced me to transition to two. While it certainly removed the “cool” factor of having a three monitors

Apple Cinema Display: Short, Long, Short Light Indication

Short post, but I thought I would share nevertheless. I recently had an issue with one of my Apple Cinema displays where the screen would not turn on, but the power indicator would show three distinctive light indications; short duration, long duration, short duration. Many thought their monitor was hosed, but I didn’t give up the search. I found an article about it being related to the power supply and by carefully placing a piece of

Experiment: Going Digital – Giving up Pen and Paper for a Week: Part 2

OK, it has been a little over a week, and its time I present my findings. First and foremost, for someone such as myself that enjoys both the digital world and conventional methods of workflow, I found it very difficult to abandon old habits. Once I got over this hurtle—about three days into the experiment—I found the conversion to be much simpler. I take notes on just about everything; conversations, tasks, ideas, etc… Needless to

Apple’s Magic Trackpad: An Accurate, Time Tested Review

0 Comments 🕔07:13, 13.Aug 2010

Of course, the new mouse by Apple--Magic Trackpad--was released a few weeks ago and to much fanfare, has widely been getting good reviews. I purchased it the day it was released; not so much for testing purposes, but to find a decent alternative to an ordinary mouse. First, being on the computer as much as I am one begins to develop wrist pain, and second I’m used to my MacBook Pro’s trackpad so it wouldn’t

Experiment: Going Digital – Giving up Pen and Paper for a Week

0 Comments 🕔12:29, 12.Aug 2010

I have decided to see if--at least for me--it is possible to go an entire week without taking a single note via the conventional means of pen and paper. I am one that has always kept two systems; (1) pen and paper for random thoughts and notes, and (2) digital means such as tasks lists, calendars, and so forth. For me, this is going to be a huge plunge into the abyss. I can’t possibly
