After 11 years of use (10 of them paid), I’m taking a break from Dropbox. It’s still the best cloud drive software, but not sure anymore if worth the expense alongside iCloud. We shall see.

If the rumored iPad mini is the insides of a 2018 iPad 9.7 in a mini frame with Pencil support, sign me up for one.

Learning about habit stacking has been a surprisingly powerful tool. It’s not a super power – because it’s not painless to use. But it’s impressive to see a mind hack that does consistently show results. Highly recommend Atomic Habits by James Clear jamesclear.com/atomic-habits

Enjoyed First Man 📺. The claustrophobic scenes from inside the ships were enlightening. Any movie based on a book that makes me want to read the book gets extra points from me. m.youtube.com/watch?v=PSoRx87O

Hmmm, our next generation anti-virus at work might be getting a bit overzealous. Either that, or this Mac is about to blowup.

I don’t remember any of my Norwegian friends so militant about the matpakke lunch, but it was a fascinating cultural thing. bbc.com/capital/story/20190103

Absolutely best way to finish the year. Amazingly we saw the whole movie – and of course I loved it.

The fact there’s no XR leather case from Apple leaves little doubt that the iPhone XR is the cheap version of the XS – which was the opposite of why I told my Dad to get the XR as we entered the store.

Must remember that a tall Starbuck’s flat white has two shots of espresso (ristretto actually). Speaking at 380 wpm – blank faces all around me.

When becoming a sofa is the highlight of a fun weekend.

Robie turned 3 today, and of course Ana organized an amazing birthday party. His whole afternoon smile made it totally worth it.

With T-Mobile, seems all major US carriers will support eSIM by years end. Gather around kids, let me tell you about the string of hacks I had to do 8 years ago to use my unlocked norwegian iPhone 3GS with a prepaid AT&T line. 9to5mac.com/2018/12/06/t-mobil

Of course Mozilla has to say that giving up on EdgeHTML is bad, but they are still right. I currently use Safari for personal browsing and Opera (Chromium based) for work, but will try to give Firefox another try. blog.mozilla.org/blog/2018/12/

Microsoft confirms Edge is moving to Chromium sometime next year. I understand the reasoning and business case, but the consolidation of browser engines is not great for the web. blogs.windows.com/windowsexper

The Verge’s Better Worlds: a science fiction project about hope sounds – and looks – like a breath of fresh air. Looking forward to it. theverge.com/2018/12/5/1805598

I’ll be the grumpy old man… what in the name of rover is all this rounded shite?. motor1.com/news/286490/land-ro
