What if Apple had 12, 13 and 15 inch MacBook models plus 13 and 15 inch MacBook Pro models? More or less the same except that the pro machines used the more powerful but more battery draining CPU’s.

How I brew Coffee

April 11, 2018

I have all kinds of different ways to brew coffee at home. I have a mocha pot, two Aeropress, more French presses than I can count(people keep giving them to me for Christmas for some strange reason) and a V60.

My preferred ways these days is to use the V60 because of how easy it is to use and clean. And I prefer the Mocha pot if I want something like an espresso. The Aeropress is awesome, but it is too much work to use it for it to be a regular thing. But I did use it as my preferred brewing method for years.

I’m not a French press fan though. The coffee is too dirty for my taste. And the last cups always end up being overbrewed.

Modern iPhones and headphones

April 10, 2018

We are on the second generation of iPhones without a headphone jack. And I guess most people are moving towards bluetooth at this point. But you get a lightning to jack plug in the box.

I think bluetooth is better in many ways. Especially when you listen on the go or while walking around somewhere. No cables that get hooked on door handles etc. But the big problem when you are using the EarPods included with the iPhone is that you can’t charge them while listening to something.

If Apple want the user experience to be as good as it was when we had a dedicated port, they either have to include a double that supports both charging and listening or they need to include AirPods with every iPhone.
