Just Twenty-Five Pages a Day
I (Jeff) love my bookshelves. I love the physical act of having the books up there on the shelves to be looked at, admired, remembered.

Jony Ive returns to hands-on control of Apple design team
The switch-up was mentioned on Twitter by Bloomberg's Mark Gurman after Apple removed Alan Dye and Richard Howarth from its Leadership profiles, even though the pair took over daily affairs when Ive assumed the CDO position in 2015.
Dye and Howarth are presumably still with the company, but it's unknown how their roles may have shifted if Ive is jumping back into the fray. […]
"With the completion of Apple Park, Apple's design leaders and teams are again reporting directly to Jony Ive, who remains focused purely on design," Amy Bessette, an Apple spokesperson, said Friday in a statement to Bloomberg.

Being Poor Is Too Expensive
“Some think that being poor is simple. You don’t have enough money to buy a lot of stuff, so you’re forced to buy less stuff. But that’s not really how it works. When you’re broke, you can’t do all the little things that will improve your budget over the long run. It actually costs more to be poor.

“When you’re poor, you can’t buy your food in bulk, buy high quality stuff that will last, or own your own tech instead of renting. It costs money up front to save money over the long run. Worse yet, being poor often comes with hidden, intangible costs that make digging yourself out of poverty even harder.”
