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

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

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

Rationale for buying the lowest-end iPad

One thing that has always astonished me, wether it be with the new iPad or with iPhones and iPods is that people are willing to spend extra money for a little bit of additional storage space. How much music do you have? I have over 60GB of music. How many videos do you have? I have over 200GB of videos. How many pictures do you have? I have over 100GB of photos. See my point?
