Open spaces at the park

My Todoist year in review. I struggle with task managers still. Been off of work for 10 days and using mostly Things 3, but I go back to work tomorrow, which means a PC… enter todoist. These year in reviews are pretty cool…. though not sure if truly useful or not?

Been playig around with Notion a lot. I imported my entire EN. As a note taking app, I would say it’s superior to EN. But my biggest use these days for EN is for document storage. For that use case, I would say Notion is not as good. Thoughts?

everything bucket update

I for now have settled on google drive being the central everything bucket where I share documents with my wife.

The search is so good (surprise, surprise) and it’s so easy to share a huge folder of documents with my wife.

I know people aren’t crazy about the privacy implications but that isn’t too much of a concern for me.

I need to write a blog post or do a short podcast on this.

AirPods Pro

I had (and sold) the newest Sony noise cancelling headphones which were very good. The problem was that I hardly used them.

The AirPods pro make it so that I benefit from noise canceling almost every day.

It’s crazy being in the mall and that sensation when you put the second AirPod pro in your ear and the noise just fades away.

Ok. Finally was able to get AirPods Pro. These things are awesome!

May switch to google calendar for my wife and I…. the problem is that GSuite annoyingly still doesn’t allow a shared “family” calendar.

This is comedy gold.

Happy Holidays!

How do people that use iOS heavily rely on gmail. It’s just awful on iOS. I’m been using a different standards based provider and finding the experience much better. Thoughts?

Can’t decide between the Synik 30 or 22?!

Today I decided to go back to FastMail. Gmails iOS support is just too bad.

Google just doesn’t want to make 1st class apps for iOS do they?

Today I sold my Sony noise canceling headphones. They were great, but I heard through the grape vine I may be getting AirPods Pro for 🎄. I use my current AirPods literally everyday, and I’ve used my new Sony headphones only a handful of times.

With the money from the headphones, I’m looking for a new backpack. Right now I’m leaning towards the Tom Bihn Synik 22

Second weekend ina row my weekly review got done… lets keep this going!

@theweeklyreview

Anyone tried remember the milk lately?

Might sell my Sony noise canceling headphones and get AirPods pro

I actually did a weekly review in Omnifocus for maybe the second time ever. I know it might by cliche at this point, but it’s amazing how helpful it actually was. It’s a practice I want to strive to keep doing.

May move back to GSuite for email.

Anyone else seeing gmail labels not syncing correctly on iOS mail on iOS 13?

#gmail

I finally found it. Myke’s iOS 13 bug is just a feature that Merlin developed almost 10 years ago!

On the iOS 13 share sheet, frequent contacts are suppose to be listed at the top. It’s not on mine.

Does it take time before it learns who to put there?

DEVONthink and Keep It

After the updates to Keep It recently, I wanted to try it again as my everything bucket. So far… I’m disappointed. I moved a folder of maybe 1500 files into the app. The app froze up and became unresponsive. Now granted, I’ve got an old MacBook Air, but still…. when I try this in DEVONthink, it works.

Then came to sync.

Keep it was taking forever to upload documents to iCloud. It never finished and would hang up again at 400 items. I didn’t have these issues with DEVONthink.

So for now, I’m sticking with DT.

All this syncing makes me long for Evernote to FINALLY bring the updates they have been promising. Time will tell…

Recently moved back to Gsuite from Fastmail. Gmails auto sorting seems pretty darn good these days, thinking of turning off my Sanebox subscription.

Made a mistake at work today. It’s hard to explain unless you work in my field. I hate this feeling. I beat myself up so much.

I have to say, DTTG by @devontech sync (via iCloud) is pretty damn fast these days.
