Being a digital minimalist is something almost anyone can benefit from, and if you are reading this on a computer, chances are you do too.

In the modern world we live in, computers are used perhaps every hour we are awake. And if we use computers for working professionally, many of us are constantly bombarded with distractions that keep us from doing what we need to.

Digital minimalism is the term used to counter-act this problem, sometimes we just can’t help ourselves not to be lazy.

I like my workspace clean. Sure, it usually isn’t, but I like it that…

While the above question would be heartlessly ridiculed only a couple of years ago, in 2021, it does make many of us scratch our heads.

This is why — iPads have become exponentially better than what they were before, especially since the release of iPad OS. It has received more and more features dedicated to improving productivity, and with a lot of companies releasing several iPad versions of professional apps, it is very possible to completely shift over your workflow, and why wouldn’t you? …

People take notes for different reasons - some do it for studying, some for work, and others simply to stay organized. A good note-taking app can make life exponentially simpler and can help keep things out of your mind, if you use it as a diary, a journal, or as your class notebook, the possibilities are endless. Here are 5 reasons why OneNote would be a good choice:

1. OneNote is free (almost)

OneNote is basically free to use. You can pay for additional features, such as storing files locally, record audio and video along with your notes, and save version history, but basically, everything…

Recently, I got into wireless earbuds, and not to lie, mostly just for the feeling of owning them. I didn’t expect them to have tremendous audio quality. Nor did I expect to use them at all, after all, most of what I do involves sitting at a desk and not moving around so much (although I should). After researching online for a few days, I stumbled upon 4 final choices: the OnePlus buds, Galaxy Buds Plus, Galaxy Buds Live, and the Noise Shots Neo 2, and I ended up buying the Buds Live. …

iPads are not cheap, they cost up to thousands of dollars, and yet for many, including me, they offer little value at that price. Of course, you get a brilliant 120Hz pro-motion screen, a near bezel-less display, and a razor-thin form factor that easily breaks, and even so, the software is still iPad OS. From importing files, reading documents, browsing the web, multitasking, and coding, a lot of things that would take 10 minutes on my laptop, I’ll spend 30 minutes figuring out on my iPad. …

What do we mean when we say something is efficient?

In the English language, it simply means to do the most work with the least effort. In the terms of using your machine, be it your laptop, phone or even your iPad, it means the time difference between thinking what you want to do, and making it happen. Hence it only makes sense that to increase efficiency, we have to reduce the time difference between thought and action, and there are a number of ways how -

1. Typing fast

I like to boast that I can type fast, not blinding fast, but…

For a few, it may sound weird. For others, it may even make them think whether the writer of this article was okay. So would I, a couple of months ago. But as I had nothing better to do, I gave it a go. Maybe I would switch back to the traditional layout again. The thing is, I never did. I fell in love with essentially a bunch of pixels vertically stacked on the left of my computer screen, it felt needless to switch back. This is why:


Do the math, for any traditional monitor, be it your 12" ultrabook…

I bought the Pixel 4A 5g, as my older Moto G5S Plus was on its end points. The phone stuttered with day-today tasks and was 4 years late on the latest software.

Personally speaking, there are 5 things in a phone that stand out for me (in no particular order): the camera, the screen, the overall experience and the battery. Google nails all these pillars not towards the left nor towards the right, in the middle, at the safe point. This phrase itself is a great metaphor for this device, it is a great safe, no-bet smartphone with nothing that…

Browsers are one of the biggest, if not the biggest applications used on our day-to-day machines: laptops, desktops, tablets, phones, etc. They are lightweight, can temporarily run several other apps online without having to download heavy files and of course, give us a path to entertainment while being stuck at home.

I am new to the laptop game. Having switched to a newer, more efficient machine running Windows 10 eight months ago, I didn’t think I would master the art of using a laptop efficiently this fast. However, after all this time, surfing the web, looking for “tips, tricks, customization, and hacks” to my machine, I came down to an organized way to run my laptop.

The Desktop

I have gone through a lot of “What’s on my Laptop” videos to be safe to say that they always start with the desktop, and for good reasons.

The desktop is the first thing you…
