As a guy who digs finding new tools, routines, and applications, I enjoy seeing what others are using and how I can streamline my work, make better use of my time, and be smarter every day.

This list is evolving and I’ll continue to make changes. Check back regularly to see what new tool I’ve found.

Tools

My current computer is a Retina 5K 27-inch 2020 iMac running Big Sur. Before this setup, I used a perfectly fine 2011 13.3-inch MacBook Pro with a 128 GB Solid State Drive. It’s still a real workhorse.

Nearly everything I read online is via Inoreader either in Chrome on my MacBook or on my iPhone/iPad. If you don’t have an RSS feed, I probably have never visited your site.

I never leave the house without my iPhone 7 Plus, my slim front pocket wallet and my keys. On my key chain I hold an Lacie Key USBTrue Utility and Swiss Tech Key. Why, yes I have opened a beer bottle or two with my True Utility Key. I probably need to update my phone, but no need quite yet.

Here’s my Carrd. Here’s my Non-Amazon wish list (for myself and others).

TweetDeck is my Twitter client of choice on the MacBook and Tweetbot on the iPhone (Although, I sometimes use Tweetbot on my MacBook).

There are a few iOS apps I use that personally I feel are high-end, beautiful to use and indispensable on my iPhone. These include Overcast, Sleep Cycle, Spark, and Things.
