How Apple’s iPhone changed the world: 10 years in 10 charts - Recode
Supermarket checkout lines — strategically stocked with magazines and candy — were for a long time a major point of sale for gum. Consumers waiting on line to pay would look around and make impulse buys. Now, however, we’re so consumed with our phones that we’re not reaching for a pack of gum to stave off our boredom. Indeed, gum sales have declined 15 percent since 2007, the year the iPhone came out, according to market research firm Euromonitor International.

You've probably read this, but it's new to me. Somehow, this point seemed significant, though I've never been a chewing-gum chewer.

Got the Post option in the bookmark bar for #Vivaldi as well as #BraveBrowser. One click and I can type and share. Now if I just had a bookmarklet for #Hubzilla on Brave to share links of others. If this were a perfect world ...

Don't know what I'll go to after my old MacBook gives out, but I can't see myself ever going back to Windows. I'd love to go to some Linux something-or-other, but I don't have the smarts to install or to do upkeep on it. Ran across the Elementary OS site, which I know nothing about, but looks cool, and that got me to thinking about my OS future again. #technology

Thanks to you both. When I'm in a position to work on something, I'll keep you posted. And probably yell for help. :)

Brought back two cordless desk phones to replace our old ones, one of which is some 23-24 years old. Way past time.

um meu amigo italiano chegou aqui em casa (ferias no Brasil) outro dia, com um smartphone um pouco menor do que o meu (que não é essa coisa toda), bom, o 'bichinho' cheio de problemas, super lento e tal, e ele quase no desespero ( é o primeiro smartphone dele)...
"olha  meu amigo, vou te contar um segredo: essas coisas aqui tipo o whatsapp e esses programinhas do google, que rodam o tempo todo, é exatamente essa M...A que está atrapalhando e complicando a vida do seu "bichinho". Se vc não dar um jeito nisso as coisas não vão melhorar....."

Moral da historia: não sei mais se essa -tecnologia- está de facto ajudando  ou atrapalhando mais a nossa vida :-D

Então, meu cel é ainda do tipo fliptop, lá do Séc. XX, hehe. Nada de internet ou app.

Sabe, li a respeito de um CEO que recusa a ter cellfone. Não é má ideia não.
