Prince Harry, Prince William and Duchess Kate talk about Mental Health - and I'm really impressed | The Relationship Blogger
I’ve never been a fan of the Royals. To be quite honest I’ve never paid them any attention whatsoever. The last time I had any interest in what the Royal Family were doing was when Princess Diana was alive, and that was only because of my Mum. Mum would always say to me, “She’s one [...]

Wojtek Pietrusiewicz's Mac and iOS setup – The Sweet Setup
Who are you and what do you do?
I am Wojtek Pietrusiewicz, and I am a publisher, writer, photographer, and sometimes a human. Two of my friends and I co-founded iMagazine a little over 6 years ago — a digital lifestyle magazine that focuses on Apple products. While we’re laser-focused on iMagazine, we have had a few side projects over the years.
What is your current setup?
My Mac history: 17″ MacBook Pro (2008), 11.6″ MacBook Air (2013), and 13″ MacBook Pro (2014).
Currently, I have the new late-2016 MacBook Pro 13″. It has the base Core i5 2.0 GHz, 16 GB of RAM, and a US layout keyboard (instead of the English International default that we get). I upgraded to this machine shortly after returning my 13″ MacBook Pro with Touch Bar. Yes, upgraded. I am unfortunately not a Touch Bar fan — I need my mechanical keyboard.

The new status symbol: it’s not what you spend – it’s how hard you work | Technology | The Guardian
Technology has made it possible for everyone to see everything as an opportunity for productivity. You can measure your sleep, sex and steps with a Fitbit, your attractiveness with Tinder, your wittiness with Twitter, your popularity with Facebook. You can transform your personality into a dashboard of data streams that can be monitored, analyzed and optimized with the precision of an industrial process. You can turn your life into a factory – and not just metaphorically. In producing yourself, you produce economic value for others. The hours you spend on these platforms may be unwaged, but they generate real revenue for the companies that own them.

This is the genius of conspicuous production. It not only promotes a culture of overwork, it makes our dwindling amount of leisure time economically productive. There is no escape: either we’re working for the company or we’re working on ourselves, but we’re always working. “Eight hours for work, eight hours for rest, eight hours of what we will” was the anthem of the workers who first demanded the eight-hour-day more than a century ago. Those distinctions don’t make sense any more. Even our sleep is factored into our productivity score – the entrepreneur of the self never gets to clock out.

Today, the old slogan of the labor movement sounds like utopian science fiction. Imagine a society that claimed so little of our labor. Imagine a world where the poor didn’t have to work so hard to exist, and the rich didn’t have to work so hard to appear worthy of their wealth, because rich and poor didn’t exist.
