Hot take on Dropbox limiting the free tier to three devices:
I get they need to better monetize their product, but it’s hard to see feature removals as anything but user hostile. It would have been nice to pair this announcement with added features on the paid plan: maybe shared data among families like Apple does with its storage?
Overall, this isn’t too bad. I wouldn’t call three devices generous, but it’s probably sufficient for most people (Computer, phone, tablet).
C’mon Dropbox, that’s a lot of pressure on Apple to implement feature parity on iCloud Drive
Ooooh our Singapore to Bangkok aircraft was just switched to a 787. First trip on a Dreamliner and I’m two-exclamation points excited!!
Fingers crossed that the new 12.1.2 AppleTV update fixes my Up Next queue trying to play from Playstation Vue: an app I’ve never even downloaded, let alone authenticated.
Getting a new Mac is a different kind of feeling. Phones, watches, and iPads are fun because so much changes between upgrades. But a Mac feels less transient. Like it’s going to hang with you for awhile.
Nothing like getting a new Mac

That Hitchcock and Scully origin episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine was the exact amount of weird I needed it to be
Remember the days when I would plan trips eight months out? We arrive in Bangkok three months from today and we don’t even know how many days we’re going to spend there
Part of me also thinks that the iMac may be the first Mac to get an Apple-designed chip. But I could never figure out if that was something worth waiting for or a reason to buy a Mac mini now.
Really the main hesitation on buying the new Mac mini was the potential for Face ID in the next iMac. But honestly even if the T2 in the Mac mini+hardware in the new Apple Cinema Display can’t do it, the auto-unlocking from the Apple Watch mostly solves that problem
This new Mac Mini is also somewhat of an indictment of photo editing on the iPad Pro. iPad editing is fast, but it’s still buggy as hell. I’m hoping by my next big trip in April that a lot of the kinks are worked out, but it seems like I’m always saying that about iPad software.
Alright. Ordered a new Mac Mini (3.2GHz i7, 16GB RAM, 1TB SSD). Editing photos on my 2015 MacBook Pro is like a point and click adventure and I’m constantly having to clear storage. The new iMacs will be amazing, but I need a computer now, so I’m getting one now (well, Tuesday).
Also, I just spared you all a ‘mind-‘bogle’ing’ pun, so you’re welcome
It’s the nichest of niches, but it’s surprising to me that John Bogle’s passing didn’t get more press coverage. Vanguard took stock market investments from something that only super rich people could do and made it conceptually possible for everyone.
Key word: “conceptually”

Two beers and then walk the aisles on the Acela train. Try it
…and here’s that travel cable strategy in all its glory
Oh ya know, just spent the morning trying to come up with a new travel charging cable strategy, as you do.
Of course, Baby Vale asked that why— as residents of Washington DC— we have no federal representation despite paying federal taxes and our laws being subject to congressional review. But luckily she decided to eat the sticker instead of waiting for my answer
