  • I’m not big on AI and ChatGPT. However, I did just use it to tell my brother I am better than him at fantasy baseball. In Shakespearean English. That is quite fun.

  • Apparently Microsoft is raffling off Zune’s in response to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.

  • Been utilizing Readwise more and more. It unearthed a fantastic quote from Man’s Search for Meaning, that I had to share. Highly recommend this book.

  • Today’s Apple announcement implies there is only the Mac Pro left that offers Intel-based configurations. Makes me wonder if they will continue to offer Intel-based for Enterprise customers or not.
