Decided that I’m not going to upgrade my Series 2 Apple Watch to a Series 4. It still works great, so why not get another year out of it? This piece on Apple designing things to last longer for environmental reasons makes me feel good about that.

Catching up on the Apple news after the journalism event I’ve been at. Don’t need to upgrade my iPhone X, and not super excited by the new one. However, the Series 4 watch with the heart monitoring feels like a good move for a middle-aged man…

Final proof that I love journalism more than I love Apple: I’ll be in the launch of some research into journalism and social media while the Apple keynote is on. (Not that I’ll be replacing my iPhone X this year, anyway.)

This makes me sad. The Guardian was once a genuine innovator in the field of podcasts - and it both abandoned that and then forgot it ever happened.

We need to stop making this mistake.

Wishing I’d brought a cot to the school “gate”.
