Heat

The iPhone 7 gets quite hot (not Note 7 hot, but still) when I’m actively working on it for over 15 minutes. It is reminiscent of my old 17″ PowerBook leg-warmer. Better out than in, I suppose. 

Memory

“The pure present is an ungraspable advance of the past devouring the future. In truth, all sensation is already memory.” 

― Henri Bergson, Matter and Memory

Re: Microsoft Band

The reason Microsoft’s attempts in the hardware space fail is their constant discontinuation of products. Consumers are not going to buy hardware from a company when they know the products won’t last more than a year or two. Ergo, new hardware products will not be purchased dooming them to the cycle of failure.
