Pocket vs. Instapaper Revisited

Almost a year ago, I wrote about how Pocket and Instapaper have fundamentally different approaches to saving and revisiting content. Over the past year, both products have made some significant improvements, and while they reinforce my initial conclusions, they also indicate some interesting shifts in the landscape of content saving.

Surface 3 vs. Surface Pro 3

On the day of its arrival, I had just handed my life’s work to a kind gentleman at the post office. I always make an effort to use and review everything that crosses my desk as thoroughly as possible as a matter of principle. This time around, it was a matter of necessity.

In the midst of the current debate raging about monetization of content on the web, I’m increasingly happy with the fact that in all the years I’ve been running this blog (in its various incarnations) it has remained entirely self-funded.

Fuji XF 56mm f/1.2 & XF 90mm f/2.0 Review →

I’m back on Tools & Toys with a review of Fuji’s two finest portrait prime lenses. This pair (and an X-T1) accompanied me on several trips, which gave me a good opportunity to put them through their paces and see what they excel at. As always, you can peep at larger versions of the photos on Flickr.

Facebook Notes →

Today marks the beginning of another experiment for Facebook: a total revamp of their Notes system. I have access to the beta and figured the best place to share my thoughts is natively, on Facebook.

Amazon’s Next Kindle Voyage

While my Kindle vs. Kobo comparison has become one of the most-read articles on the site, I’m left with some lingering regret that I couldn’t include the Voyage in my comparison. From the emails I’ve received, I know many of you were also hoping that I would one day follow up with a Voyage review.

Fuji X100T →

It’s been a long time coming, but my review of the Fuji X100T is finally ready. The amazing folks at Tools & Toys were kind enough to publish it, so head over and enjoy the read! If you’d like to peep at larger versions of the photos, you can do so on Flickr.
