Week 3: Living in the future
A couple of years ago I tweeted:
Musing over if I could ditch my phone day to day and move to just an Apple Watch with cellular.
I now quite happily leave the house without my wallet or phone. Being able to pay and message people from my watch is revolutionary. Not being able to read WhatsApp messages is the only feature I really miss, thankfully most of my best friends use iMessage.
- On the days I’ve been jogging to and from work I’ve been able to run with just my house keys. It’s fantastic.
- I pushed myself too far jogging and have hurt my knee and and achilles so will need to back off to let them recover.
- We’re currently hiring lots of engineers at the FT, it means I’m spending increasing numbers of hours a week interviewing. If you know anyone who wants a new job feel free to get in touch.
- The new Apple Pay Express Mode makes it feel like we’re living in the future. It’s like using a wand to get through the barriers.
