Jason Fried, on the how modern technology endures:
I’ve got two machines on me.
One’s strapped to my left wrist. The other lives in my pocket.
This thought has been lingering with me. A couple weeks ago, the cellular radio in my iPhone died. Just went kaput. One day it worked. Next day “No Signal.”
My watch is an automatic, similar to the way Jason’s works. It doesn’t have a battery and doesn’t need upgrades. It’s going to keep ticking reliably long after model and model of “smart” phones come and go.
How do we plan and set up the technology we use to be as long-lasting as possible? That’s another lingering thought in my mind.
