Even though I knew deep within that it was coming, the news of Federer’s retirement saddens me. As an Indian, I never thought I would watch any sport as intently as I watched Cricket. Or cheer for anyone as loud as I did for India. Federer made me do both – this man is why I fell in lov... amitgawande.com/2022/09/15/eve

You didn't need reviews to tell you iPhone 14 is not much of an upgrade. And you probably shouldn't buy one -- go for 13. You won't miss much, and you would save a lot. But then am sure there are some justifications for not doing that. To each his own, I guess. theverge.com/23352282/iphone-1

Since I downloaded and started using the Arc browser, I haven’t gone back to the other browsers. It has allowed me to stay on a website for longer and not get distracted by the bookmarks. Or shortcuts. And I don’t even use the marque features of the browser.

I read a flash fiction I wrote 5 years ago – it was a time when I was experimenting a lot with what I was writing. And I still love every word that I wrote then. amitgawande.com/2017/09/13/224

For the last few days, I have been away from all the social timelines. No specific reason, just that life happened.

I liked this article from Monica Chin at The Verge, where she talks about what makes a good laptop. Though the answer to that question usually is “well, it depends why you need it”, I agree with all of the must-meet criteria that she lists down – good RAM, good display, good keyboard (... amitgawande.com/2022/09/10/i-l

I don’t get Apple’s iPhone 14 lineup. Let me be upfront and say I have no intention of being an asshole. Or to troll Apple. I am genuinely curious if Apple has improved iPhone 14 (non-Pro) in any significant way over the last year’s model. Even S models from yesteryears had more signifi... amitgawande.com/2022/09/08/i-d

I didn’t follow the Apple event live – I was sleeping peacefully, unaware of what Apple was announcing. I’d also skipped the WWDC and Google I/O keynotes. Knowing that the improvements will only be incremental, my excitement for these tech events has dwindled in recent years.

@bradenslen Interesting. I rarely do. The back tends to get hot. Sure, M1/M2 might have helped.

How frequently do you place your laptop on your lap anymore? I don't often. It's usually on some form of table.

I love the visits to the library with my daughter. She loves spending time amidst the books – strolling through aisles, looking excitedly at the varied genres of books. Of course, she hasn’t read them all (duh!), but making her choose her book for the day is a difficult task.

I finished reading Think Again by Adam Grant today 📚
Though the book is in no way short, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Grant presents numerous ideas across sections and chapters – some focused on individuals, others on teams. Some on one’s personal life, others on the professional one. Given... amitgawande.com/2022/09/04/i-f

Unless you have skipped a lot of school, or work, or both – or you live in the USA – you have probably used an A4 sheet of paper before now. Have you ever wondered why it is the shape or size it is? Time to dust off some high-school level maths to investigate.

I have been using a MacBook with Touch Bar for the past couple of weeks. I used this panel regularly for the first time. I can see why Apple wanted this to stick – when it works, it works well. For example, Zoom puts the buttons for full screen, mute, and video on/off front and centre. ... amitgawande.com/2022/09/01/i-h

Don’t ever try to retell famous comedians' jokes. They have a whole process, a build-up before they hit their audience with the joke. You can’t do it all in the 2 minutes you borrow from someone. And they have the skill you don’t, hence famous. Duh!
