Interesting and spooky experiment: I Liked Everything I Saw on Facebook for Two Days. Here’s What It Did to Me

I Liked Everything I Saw on Fa... screenshot

I'm increasingly skeptical of Facebook. I'm going to keep looking at it and think how I'm going to be using it going forward. Maybe I'm doing it wrong? Maybe there is a way to use it and stay sane? Do you find value in Facebook?

What do you think? Microsoft Launches Three New Surface Pro 3 Ads Targeting the MacBook Air

Microsoft Launches Three New S... screenshot

These three new ads are cool and really put bad light on the MacBook Air... But don't show how nice it is to use an air. And they don't show the air on the lap. Again, I prefer #iPadOnly now :-)

Interesting concept by @parislemon: Twitter’s Small Chance To Maim Email - do you agree?

Twitter’s Small Chance To Ma... screenshot

Now with Whatsapp, snapchat and other similar services, twitter will also double down on direct messaging. I don't think it will change email though.... Do you?

Answer yourself: Do You Dread Saying Yes But Feel Powerless Saying No? (Via @michaelhyatt)

Do You Dread Saying Yes But Fe... screenshot

As always good advice on saying NO. It's always hard, but so increasingly important. Make sure to ask yourself again today a few times before saying YES to a new commitment.

Talking about iPad as a typewriter (cc @parislemon), here's my review of ✔ Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard - Gadget Review - Productive! Show #77

✔ Logitech Ultrathin Keyboar... screenshot

I also use Logitech Ultrathin and I love it... although I'm not happy with its vertical grip (or lack thereof) - I prefer to write vertically on my iPad and can't do it on this keyboard without a fear of the iPad falling down...

Yes, working #iPadOnly feels to me like it does to @parislemon: The New Typewriter

It even feels like I’m using a typewriter. Because there is no trackpad/hand rest below the keyboard, it feels like I’m attacking the keys at the typewriter angle, versus hovering over them at the keyboard angle.

Totally true. Can't agree more :-)

Totally agree with this article. Do you? Pleco: Building a Business, not an App

Pleco: Building a Business, no... screenshot

Nozbe is a business. It's not just an app. It never has been. It's a suite of apps now (Mac, Windows, Linux, iPhone, iPad, Android... and more coming soon). But it's a business and I always tried to make sure I could stay in business. And we're doing great, having a better year each year... and growing. And with the iPhone and iPad we're going places we never thought would be possible. And now with Nozbe beta I think we have a shot at taking it all to a whole new level.

Have you read my #free #passionbook? If not, start here: ✔ It's all about passion! - Introduction [part 1]

✔ It's all about passion! - ... screenshot

Decided to publish my entire book It's all about passion on my blog. I'm giving it away for free anyway, so why not to publish it on my blog and be able to comment on specific sections of the book with my readers? What do you think?

Something to think about (by @Michael Hyatt): The Power of the Minimum Effective Dose

The Power of the Minimum Effec...

Totally true. Something to think about when you're learning a new skill. It takes some dedication to get even to 90%... but it takes real mastery to move from 90-95%... so maybe 90 or 80% is already good enough? Is it?

I agree with @marcoarment, you sometimes need to deal with sleazy businesses... sad but true, right?

I’ll Never Fly Amazon Ag... screenshot

Great article. It's hard to dismiss Google, Twitter, Facebook, Amazon... because we depend on them so much... but as Marco points it out, you can try no to use them that much and search for alternatives if possible... just in order not to give them as much business as you'd normally do...

And to me it's important to run Nozbe in a way that you'd never have to have similar thoughts about your productivity system :-)
