No picks on this show, but mixed reactions to the product announcements all around. I did find a new online ad on the New York Times this morning. Kinda funny…
Do you have any predictions or topic recommendations for the MBW crew for 2008?
I’d like to hear a show about the “bad old days” of being a Mac user. I came into the Mac world a little late and only really know OS X.Ã?â??Ã?Â Another show of “Mac whines” would be great as well.
As far as predictions, I’ll go out on a limb and say that Scott Bourne will really like the next generationÃ?â??Ã?Â iPhone.Ã?â??Ã?Â A lot.
How about you?
Hardware & Software Picks:
Here’s what to expect on January 16:
Our “always on” habits (and the technologies that enable them) have left most of us feeling stressed-out, anxious, and perpetually behind on _everything_ we do. We’ve ceded full-time access to anyone who wants it – we drink from a fire hose all day long, then wonder why our lips feel so chapped.
Merlin Mann parts the seas of interruption and procrastination to reveal the emerging skills that are re-defining how we choose to live and work over the next five years.
You will learn – How to begin regaining your time and attention – focusing where it brings the most long-term value to your world.
Who should attend – Whether you’re a stay-at-home caregiver or a startup CEO, you’ll benefit from learning how to build smarter walls and how to make faster decisions about who gets access to your world at any given time.
Quick update – in the last episode, Leo asked that you email him for the pdf of Merlin Mannerisms.Ã?â??Ã?Â Change of plan – just download it here:
