I feel the need for repetition in the lessons of personal finance in the same way I feel the need to hear my partner say, “I love you”. While I already know it to be true, I need to hear it regularly. Similarly, I need to hear those familiar money lessons often. Even though I know them, it takes that reminder, that moment of checking in, to make sure I’m actually implementing them.
Funny how psychology works. I have no problem with Netflix using DRM, because it’s very clear that their offering is like a “channel”, to which you have unlimited access during the time you pay for the subscription.
On the other hand, I highly resent DRM in things like ebooks that I’ve paid for, because I’ve bought them and they should be MINE, perpetually.
Seems like a good list. Makes me want to find a copy of Caves of Androzani. We watched #2 just tonight:
2) Blink – You could argue that it deserves the top spot. This insanely inventive story about stone statues that can get you when you’re not looking, and a DVD extra showing a missing time traveler dispensing cryptic advice, is still unrivaled, even after years of copies.
Very well written, especially in the way the story was exposed. Anyway, on to the rest of the list. :)
Just a collection of posts I read leading up to the start of Apple’s WWDC tomorrow.
I previously posted my own list of feature requests back in March. All the posts above were definitely written by people who have used iOS for a while. Since even Macworld is asking for some of the same changes as me, who knows, maybe some of them will happen (especially some form of better inter-app communication). But then again, many of the changes have been on wish-lists for years, so it’s hard to say. Regardless, 80% or more of the requested features already exist in Android. With that in mind, I feel it’s becoming harder and harder to justify the higher price of iOS devices. Back in 2008-2011, the benefits were much clearer. Makes one wonder what the mobile space will look like 5 years out…
