I rant about the iPad Air, the alleged demise of the one-computer household in the post-PC era, whether we really require individual devices for every single use case, and nerds’ inner rationalization on buying things they don’t really need.
In addition, I try to understand why inline Twitter photos and Instagram ads are viewed as so intrusive to users, how Google+ leverages social data regardless of the lack of activity on the platform, and why writing for free is purely an individual’s decision and none of anyone else’s business.
