I love cycling in the early morn. There’s nothing like the calming sensation of a cool breeze on your face as you barrel through the gentle morning mist along a quiet dimly lit road. The peaking rays of the morning sun, while not fully formed, warms the heart with a sense of renewal and hope.
I’ve been cycling since my youth. It was the only form of transport that kids of my generation use to get around. In that sense, I’ve been cycling for decades now but only dabbled into “serious” cycling around a decade ago. In that time period, I’ve chewed up 2 bikes and is currently on my third (and most beloved) bike, a Specialized Roubaix.
It’s that time of the year, when things quiet down, for a reflection of the year that was 2020. It is truly a unique and memorable year in many ways one for the history books. Generations from now, books (and documentaries) will be produced to try and figure this year out. Academicians and storytellers will try to dissect this year to distill its lessons and meanings for the future of humanity.
After a few days of using the new iPad Air with the Magic Keyboard and Apple Pencil 2, I am glad to say that it is much closer to a laptop. It has neat features and design that makes it so much more closer to a laptop replacement. But that is not the full story. Find our more in this long-ish iPad Air review.
Apple has been promoting the idea that iPad is a great notebook replacement over the past couple of years. It started when they introduced iPad Pro. These devices come with desktop class processors and have the ability to connect with special keyboards and pencil.
It’s been close to 4 months now since we started working from home. Right now, we are currently in a 3-team rotation.
I love working from home. There’s no tedious need to travel, thinking about how to appear not to dress up while dressing up and physically showing up for meetings that have no particular reason to exist. Yes, life now tends to be more straightforward. Sure, we lose the “personal” touch thing but I do feel (at least for now) that this is somewhat over-rated. Or perhaps this is the inner introvert me speaking.
