5th horseman pick :: From the Prof.

Last year’s pick was Netflix. Makes sense – the operating system video.

Now he is picking Spotify – essentially the operating system for audio. Makes sense, and this is why they shouldn’t mess around with video at all.

On Apple, Love Letters and Educators – Oh My Pizza Blog

Article pretty much nails it.

Buy kid a Chromebook – one login via setup and everything done. My son has google docs, some storage and what this article also misses is with his google login he had easy access to the other tools that he might use. Apple doesn’t have that since they are nowhere near the scale in logins that are used to login to other sites.

This article also doesn’t cover the other tools – recently I noticed the Singapore classroom switch from Edmondo over to Google classroom.

Which of course just sits over the top of google drive and google docs.

Apple makes great hardware but the student version of the laptop I bought my soon was 300 bucks. No pencil needed.

But the British couple didn’t celebrate. That’s not their way. “If you embark on something like this you can’t really be a victory or despair personality, because you’d burn out,” says Shivaun, 49. “We insist on it being dispassionate.” Their company was destroyed, their lives bent out of shape – but the pair insist the campaign’s been worth it. “It would have been wrong to back out,” says Adam, 51. “So we just did the right thing.”

Wouldn’t it be cool if giant tech companies like Google would just do the right thing instead of basically being evil but using a slogan of Do No Evil…

Big tech is scary at times.

Google Is Is One Step Closer to Its User-Centric Vision of Travel Booking – Skift

I wonder how far Google goes here. They know so much and are already so key to people and travel.

Curious where this is gonna go and how far they take transactions and global readiness.

Google typically let’s down in that regard – like getting a pixel in Singapore for example.
