I bought my first computer in the spring of 2002. I had come late to personal computers. It was a Fujitsu laptop that I bought from a big box electronics store near Enmachi in Kyoto. It took a few months before it was even connected to the internet! A couple of years later, I madeContinue reading “Keychron K2”
In the summer of 2012, after quitting Apple, I went out on a limb and got my first Android phone. 5 years later I have switched back to iOS. It is interesting to see what has and has not changed, and what I miss about Android after two weeks with iPhone X.

While toiling away on my master’s thesis I had to travel to and from Japan (for family reasons). I didContinue reading “How I read”
[Sidenote: Funny how I just posted about leaving Apple and now I am talking about my new Android phone…] Alright, so a couple of Android observations after having this new Samsung Galaxy S3 for just a couple of days. I still haven’t adjusted completely, so I am trying to keep these observations limited to moreContinue reading “My first few days with an Android phone”
Yep, still using Clear from @realmacsoftware. Here is my minimalist GTD setup.

You can download my OPML file from here. I grouped all the shows as follows:Continue reading “My current podcasts”
