If the rumored iPad mini is the insides of a 2018 iPad 9.7 in a mini frame with Pencil support, sign me up for one.

Learning about habit stacking has been a surprisingly powerful tool. It’s not a super power – because it’s not painless to use. But it’s impressive to see a mind hack that does consistently show results. Highly recommend Atomic Habits by James Clear

Enjoyed First Man 📺. The claustrophobic scenes from inside the ships were enlightening. Any movie based on a book that makes me want to read the book gets extra points from me.

Hmmm, our next generation anti-virus at work might be getting a bit overzealous. Either that, or this Mac is about to blowup.

I don’t remember any of my Norwegian friends so militant about the matpakke lunch, but it was a fascinating cultural thing.

Absolutely best way to finish the year. Amazingly we saw the whole movie – and of course I loved it.

A very special Aruba Christmas

The fact there’s no XR leather case from Apple leaves little doubt that the iPhone XR is the cheap version of the XS – which was the opposite of why I told my Dad to get the XR as we entered the store.

Get your shit together Apple.

Vacation mode dock enabled.

The new Men In Black trailer looks very fun. Sadly the new Hellboy trailer felt off. Wish it was the other way around.

Must remember that a tall Starbuck’s flat white has two shots of espresso (ristretto actually). Speaking at 380 wpm – blank faces all around me.

When becoming a sofa is the highlight of a fun weekend.

Robie turned 3 today, and of course Ana organized an amazing birthday party. His whole afternoon smile made it totally worth it.

The Mateu Schloeter

With T-Mobile, seems all major US carriers will support eSIM by years end. Gather around kids, let me tell you about the string of hacks I had to do 8 years ago to use my unlocked norwegian iPhone 3GS with a prepaid AT&T line.

Of course Mozilla has to say that giving up on EdgeHTML is bad, but they are still right. I currently use Safari for personal browsing and Opera (Chromium based) for work, but will try to give Firefox another try.

Microsoft confirms Edge is moving to Chromium sometime next year. I understand the reasoning and business case, but the consolidation of browser engines is not great for the web.

The Verge’s Better Worlds: a science fiction project about hope sounds – and looks – like a breath of fresh air. Looking forward to it.

Land Rover Defender Spied Flaunting Its New Body In The U.K.

I’ll be the grumpy old man… what in the name of rover is all this rounded shite?.

A tip for all Uber drivers: play your local jazz radio station at a reasonable low volume, and the whole experience is instantly upgraded.

I’d rather buy the digital download version of Firefly (again) than watch it free on Facebook.

Zcash (ZEC) is launching on Coinbase Pro. I have a special appreciation for Zcash as a project – it seems to have the sanest mind in the popular crypto world.

Had lunch with my yellow princess.

On Sundays we go out. Otherwise these two (plus mom) get encierro – aka cabin fever.

After lunch cappuccino with the Prismo AeroPress thingy. It was made out of need – not play – and I surprised myself how well it turned out.

We made a killer entrecôte today.
