This year was a tough one, wasn’t it? We all have some complicated thoughts about 2020. For me, it taught me a few things, and made me feel very fortunate, even though it was a year without travel, major events, or big family get togethers.
My wife and I love to plan things, dreaming of the next time we can take a trip, get in the car, and just get away for a few days. The last eight months have been something else though, haven’t they?
What a difference a year makes. Since last fall, I’ve tested and reviewed a lot of phones, and I’ve taken thousands of photos with all of them. There’s lots I could say about each phone, but I’m still happy to keep coming back to the indispensable iPhone 11.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra arrives next Friday, and I’ve honestly been geeking out while I’m testing it for my review next week.
North announced this morning that they’ve been acquired by Google, and it’s possibly the most interesting news that I’ve heard so far this year in tech.
Over the last 20 years I’ve been doing my own thing, and there have been highs and lows, but I’m feeling very happy and fortunate to see one success that stands out today, and it seems like a good time to celebrate since Canada Day is coming up.
What did you expect this year? Not this, I imagine, and if you were planning a holiday, there’s certainly some good news ahead, but there’s also a new reality we need to embrace.
It’s hard to overstate what George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead and Dawn of the Dead did for horror. He was ahead of his time. The films helped set a style, tone, and visual language for what we imagine when we think of zombies, and he also used the films to talk about social issues.
The DJI Mavic Air 2 is a real surprise, and it’s gotten me excited to get out more for some spring droning. If you only expected a few updates from the original, you’re in for a real treat with the new drone.
The days have been different, but technology has been impressively helpful during these strange times. I’m streaming more, taking guitar lessons online, working, and at times, trying to be creative too.
