    I’ve been using Apple’s smallest MacBook for a fortnight. It’s a lovely computer but I prefer my iPad, which is actually bigger

    The direction of travel of tech is ever more complex systems with ever simpler interaction. Computers doing more but asking fewer questions

    I prefer my iPad to my MacBook because it asks fewer questions. Charging, network, password, folders, saving, windows, cursors all unasked
