And before you berate me, know that I own an Android tablet and have used others. But I also own three iPads. They’re better. They have more apps, a more responsive interface; they just plain work. We use them constantly. I’m not even sure where the Android tablet is. I think it might be in a drawer somewhere. I used to keep it in the shitter to read books on its Kindle app, not wanting to sully my iPad. But then the battery died and quite frankly it wasn’t worth my time to find the charger and now I’ve lost the tablet too. I don’t miss it.
— Love this quote from an article on Gizmodo. It tells a lot about the Android tablet.

Hello 2013

Well, I’ve looked back at 2012… Here’s what’s I’m aiming for 2013.

- Get back on a healthy track.

- Going back on 4HB. 

- Skydiving is fucking nice! ‘nuff said.

- Mental work, need to be less bitchy, more aware and find inner peace.

- Drink more tea.

- Find the best in what I do and keep a hold on it.

- Do some exercise. I’m looking at you Kettlebell.

That’s it! Lots of fun. I can do it, I know it.

Not buying in 2013.

I won’t be buying any computers or cellphones in 2013. All my hardware is up to date. I may buy some small gadgets, but I’ll do my best to limit my spending.

- Cellphone, I have 2, an iPhone 5 and a Nexus 4.
- Laptop, I also have 2, a MBPr and a MBA.
- iPad, I also have 2 of those, a mini and a 3 with LTE.

I don’t need anything else.

Looking back on 2012

Like every years, I write a post about the passing year.

This post always comes to mind in between Christmas and New Year. It’s the time of the year where I kind of wind down, sit back, pity myself, get depress about events and look back on my life, my work and my state of mind. Sometime, I think about my health and how I suck.

I also read what I’ve said at the same time last year. And boy did I suck big time this year. I haven’t done anything that I was looking to do in 2012. I tried some and failed.

What can I say about 2012…

- Skydiving! I’ve jumped out of a plane almost 75 times. I would have made it to my goal, but had surgery #1, apendicitis. 

- Trip to France, skydived one time on the trip.

- Worked the full year as an independent contractor. Good times, bad times, good jobs, less ideal jobs.

- Worked on my health, haven’t reached any goals, lost some weight, got it all back plus some.

- Bought my personal parachute.

- Had surgery #2, had some liver stones, gallbladder removed. (this takes care of all the digestive problem that I had)

Looking back on goals, I now know how hard it is… But I now have some kind of blue print and I kind of know what to expect.

Lets do this again.

Webapps that I use everyday

I’ve been meaning for some time to post an update regarding the apps that I use. I’ve been using for some time webapps if I did find any that where better or more practical than desktop apps.

I don’t really use a computer every day anymore. With the venue of the iPad, I do like 90% of all my computing on this device. I find it more natural and less prone to problems than using a laptop or desktop.

Here are the apps that I use on the web. They differ from my last post, but some stuck and others went. I must say that I tend to simplify my computing.

- Google apps (gmail, gtalk, gdoc, calendar, reader)
- Dropbox (10gigs)
- rdio (I don’t buy music anymore)
- Flickr (used to show photos to friends)
- Evernote (scratch pad for anything)
- Pinboard.in (replaced del.icio.us)

The last thing I need to find out, is a nice backup service where I can send my pictures and must keep files. There are a lot of option, but none that is exactly what I need. If I could buy a 1tb Dropbox for keeping stuff, that would be awesome.

Well the list isn’t as long as I predicted. I tought that I used way more app than this. This has to be good in some way. The key word for 2013 is “Simplify”.
