In my sphere, it is usually something like, "[Explicative] finally" or "took the [explicative][-head] long enough."
I started to answer what day I am most reproductive, but realized this is
Aiming for top 50k apps. Anything less than supporting all the apps I use simply diminishes the value. I don't need to switch to a less valuable device.
The type of people who value less closed systems are also those, as a group, with a wide range of needs. If I value my privacy and am willing to use less popular devices, why would I then be willing to use the most popular apps?
What I believe the ecosystem needs more than another device are apps that provide features available in the popular ones, but with the least possible amount of information gathering or sharing.
If we stack them with the rest of the family, they won't complain. After all, they're meek. And nice.
There are a lot who don't even inherit that. A few ashes, maybe a lantern to float down the river.
Yes. Receiving chocolate from someone you don't expect and there is no real obligation (friend, supervisor,
Actually no, not pizza. Customizing software for order/processing - businesses like t-shirt printing, box building (including pizza boxes), rental management. Outside of three time zones in the USA, the rest were southern or western Pacific. Lots of little stuff like coding for tax rules and resizing forms to make invoices with kanji readable.
I'm guessing 5 or 6. I've had fun dealing with things while out of country. When I'm half-way around the world, I take a bit of satisfaction from answering vendor emails while they're asleep.
I wake up at 4am; I get up to full steam about 6-6:30 and start to fade around 10am. Then, when going out with friends, there is another burst of activity 6pm - 8pm. This second wind is not necessarily productive in terms of tasks finished, but it is a lot more productive in fun terms: alcohol consumed, dice rolled, etc.
I don't want to bother converting tonnage to GB to be exact, but I'm sure it is more than paper and film.
Neither, though I do qualify, barely, as an otaku.
More generally, when a person is present and attempting to communicate with you. An exception can be made for when said person is harming you or texting you. Or if said person is your parent - minors are legally allowed (obligated?) to ignore their parents if they let you have a texting device.
Calling it a watch would be misleading. Smartphones today could be called an iWatch as they mimic those watches we kept in a pocket (maybe on a chain or strap) and pulled them out when we wanted to know the time. Just that now we expect it to do more than tell time.
I imagine something a wider (along the forearm) than the old wristwatches we loved 20 years ago to give a reasonable* size screen. The rest works a lot like a smartphone.
*reasonable:less of an adjustment than we made to a smartphone screen after attaching larger and larger screens to our desktop computers.
Frequently, counting the local farmer's market: dozens of times per year. Most Saturdays except during winter and early spring. Otherwise, rarely.
