My Phone

Phone: iPhone 5.

Case: None. Real men don’t have iPhone cases. It has been dropped from a few feet a couple of times and survived. If not, I’d get the 5S—which is the only reason I can see upgrading from the 5 before the 6 hits the market.

Background: Lock screen is my oldest daughter’s senior picture, Wallpaper is a stock 3D photo of the a nebula. “I like that it reminds me of the vastness & beauty of the universe. Also, the dark background since it makes it easy to see all my icons.

Ringtone: None. My phone is always on vibrate.

Last text: To a friend. Deciding plans for our meet-up Friday night.

Most-used app: ToodleDo. I live in my task manager. Then probably Tweetbot, Calendar, MyFitnessPal, Runkeeper/Training Peaks.

Current obsession: Evernote. It’s the best way I’ve found to sync information and key notes across all my devices.

Last download: FIFA 2014.

Most surprising app on my home screen: Probably Paper. I prefer it to the normal Facebook app.

App on his home screen that he never uses: None. I’m constantly reconfiguring my screens to ensure the apps I use are most readily accessible. I’m pretty ruthless on apps - if I don’t use an app regularly, it gets pushed to the back page. If after a few weeksit hasn’t been used, it gets deleted.

Voicemail greeting? Simple “leave a message”. Though I really don’t like voicemail.

Clean inbox? Yes. 

Text or call? Text. I love text. Email is good since it’s relatively fast and asynchronous.  I have made only one call in the last two days.

Remaining battery: 95%. My phone never dies, since I would die. I have 95% of my battery left, but it was down to 8 percent and 2 percent this week. Very scary. My motto is ‘ABC’ - ‘always be charging’.

What about you?

The Internet is a wonderful thing. Sometimes it’s a time machine:

Children playing Amstrad CPC464 computer. Data and programs were input with the built-in tape reader on the right of the keyboard. The game on screen is Paperboy.

I didn’t have the Amstrad - it was a Commodore 64 for me at this point…

"The universe is full of magical things patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper."

Eden Phillpotts, “A Shadow Passes.”

A listener shared this quote (commonly misattributed to W. B. Yeats) inspired by our show with social psychologist Ellen Langer.
