Hello! I am coder by profession, who loves to read & write to keep myself inspired. I have been a blogger for more than 12 years, but lost touch with writing when Twitter was at it’s peak. May be I lost love for my words.
Anyway recently IndieWeb got my love for the technology and also writing back. So been working on a lot many Indie projects & writing my heart out at my blog since then. My only hope is this place does not kill my drive for reading, writing and coding; rather inspires it.
As part of the process of reclaiming some time from shambles of digital distractions, I have started actively following one more routine - I log out of every social media service once I have used it. Some thoughts. https://blog.amitgawande.com/logging-out-from-social-media
Infinite scrolling sucks. I am at your website to read a particular article — don’t try to entice me with another completely unrelated one. Completely unnecessary. https://blog.amitgawande.com/infinite-scrolling-sucks
It was exactly a year ago that I had posted an update on my then-recently undertaken no-news experiment. I am pleasantly surprised that the things begun then have more or less stayed the same. Plus I've begun a no YouTube experiment. #digitalminimalism https://blog.amitgawande.com/digital-detox-oct-2019
> If Apple needs to do things differently in China to comply with Chinese law, they need to explain exactly what they’re doing and why. Otherwise people are going to assume the worst. “Trust us” is not good enough. If they’re embarrassed to explain in detail what they’re doing to comply with Chinese law, then they shouldn’t be doing it.
Current (another!) kerfuffle involving Apple and China best summarized by John Gruber - especially the last line. All the criticism comes down finally to this.
I'm glad that Android exists. We need to credit Google for fostering a platform that attracts more and more OEMs. It makes the digital age accessible to a larger section of population. Some thoughts. https://blog.amitgawande.com/thanks-to-android
My experiences with OnePlus 7 - the first OnePlus device that I have owned has been brilliant. I can fathom now the rage that OnePlus brand has caused in the last couple of years. Brilliant designs and terrific performance.
One thing I do wonder though - isn't OxygenOS 10 out for OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro? Why does it say my system is up-to-date when I know it isn't?
