The One Thing Both Apple and Android Are Missing

Every time it’s time for me to get a new phone I always change sides. I do it not only so I can become versed in different ways to design a phone and explore the realms of titillating UI discrepancies, but also because there are different things I quite enjoy that its main competitor doesn’t have. Nowadays with iPhone and Android phones being incredibly similar in so many ways, I thought I’d talk about the one distinction the other doesn’t have that would make the other option obsolete if it added the feature (in my eyes of course).

Board Game Review: Cat Lady

Cat Lady is a new game published by the reputable board game comp AEG and is a game where you take the role of a crazy collecting cat lady. It is a drafting game where players take turns gathering food, toys, cat drugs, costumes, wanted posters, and certainly, a ton of cats. You gotta feed your cats to get points! There are a ton of ways to get points, from hoarding a variety of cat toys to finding stray cats that are great for developing cat feeding strategies. The game is relatively quick, is easy to pick up, and has a good amount of depth, which is a stellar combination to have in a board game.

I Built a Computer!

A couple weeks ago my dad offered me a challenge (and full reimbursement). He needed a family computer that would be used to store family pictures, videos, and the like, as well as be a stable work environment for him that would last longer than his throwaway Dell laptop stack. This is the first time I built a computer so things were interesting and new to say the least.

This post is going to share what I built, how it went, and what I learned.

My New Years Resolutions

Growing up I always laughed at people that pinged New Years as the day they start getting their act together. I thought hey if you want to change yourself why wait until it looks sexy in a spreadsheet to do so? Do it today not tomorrow.

And hear I am today, doing just that. Motivation comes and goes when it comes to things we don’t always want to do and New Years Resolutions, for as much deserved shit as everyone gives them, is a better point than most to start figuring everything out again. And at the end of the day (or year), we should be happy for any extra motivational nuggets that come along with us.

So what are my resolutions?
