Even though I’ve admitted it to myself that it’s never going to happen. I think I’m still trying to be ‘a writer’. Time for one blog with all my posts on it I think.

Paying Attention

I often sit around whilst waiting for meetings and just look at my surroundings. This is pretty normal, most people do this, but how many people let their mind wander while doing it. You might be looking, but you’re not seeing.

Your mind is off down a rabbit hole of imagination and fantasy. This is sometimes a good thing, but it’s only when you are really present and know what that feels like, that you realise how we pop in and out of reality constantly during the day.

Today is a nice warm day, and there is nothing better than really feeling and paying attention to the warmth on my skin and listening the the birds in the trees. All these things would be missed if I wasn’t paying attention to the world.

As attractive as this is. Still can’t work out why it come with only 8mb of RAM

For some reason I’m facinated by running water

The latest Shortcuts beta does indeed fix everything that put me off using my iPad for weeks. But I just feel like I can’t trust Apple going forward, and that I’m too invested in something that if broken hinders my work dramatically.

Where to put your tech investment

So how exactly do people wade through a world this complicated. It’s a huge task but it is now absolutely vital that users start to choose items based on the ethics and values that a company holds.

Google has been tracking Android users even with location services turned off

Google has confirmed it has been able to track the location of Android users via the addresses of local mobile phone masts, even when location services were turned off and the sim cards removed to protect privacy.

Well I for one, am shocked!

Dont get me wrong, the depressing and outrage on Twitter is annoying, but so is constant positivity and motivational memes. I think the best world is a varied one, where we all understand each others perspective.

Stop looking at me

Automated phone lines

Is there a person out there that doesn’t hate these things from the bottom of their soul? The worst ones are the voice recognition ones, where I invariably end up screaming “let me talk to a person” until someone picks up.

I had to call one of these today, to make a complaint and I thought this would give me a priority. The urban legend is that you say you want to leave and you get straight through, well let me tell you that’s false. Even though I rung to make a complaint I was still on hold almost 20mins, this could have been by design, but I just wanted to talk to a human who could have solved my issue in 30seconds.

I like taking to humans, please let me talk to humans easier.

Crazy hair. Don’t care. (Also crazy 👀) 🤣

ok, so I’m a little confused. How do I put images in micro.blog posts at certain points in a post. All i can find is how to put one at the end?

I'm done taking about tech

Over the last few weeks I have realised something quite dramatic in my life. Perhaps as I get older, and focus on different things technology news has started to play and less role in my life - so I think it’s time I throw in the towel.

It’s a long time since anyone asked or cared about my opinions, but I simply don’t have the time to consume the information required to be ‘up to date’ and therefore the time to quit is now.

One of two things will happen, I will carry on basing my opinions given on podcasts and social media on old or out of date information and be out of touch. Or I will end up giving half arsed opinions, because frankly I’m no longer interested.

I’m more interested in using technology, what people get out of it and how we can improve our lives with it. I don’t care who is angry at who, and what rumours are floating about.

Apologies if I’ve given some half baked takes on news stories of late, it won’t happen again.

I have no idea where to start with Automator on Mac. This week is going to be fun!

Really enjoying the web clipping options from Notion. I’ve all of a sudden got reinvested in the platform and imported 2-3 apps worth of information. This is going to be a great aid to digital minimalism.

Dealing With A Reality Distortion Field

It is something that has long been attributed to Steve Jobs, but I observe it almost on a daily basis. In fact it almost seems like I am surrounded by a constant stream of half truths or simply down right wrong information. How do I call people out on their bullshit without hurting feelings or simply coming across as a jackass.

It seems to have become the norm to not fact check yourself. Or even worse bumble your way through a conversation you know very little about, and impose your point of view from seer will power alone. It feels like a throw back to a time without internet access, a time when you couldn’t be checked in a few seconds. If you’re honestly under the impression you are right that is one thing. But lies are another.

Too often I have written posts giving advice and help to others for things I have been through. Now I am asking for advice myself, this is something I struggle with a lot.
