One reason it’s hard to compete with GORUCK, is that they aren’t based in SF — they are based in reality. Basing your company in SF holds you back these days.

The Apple battery smoothing issues shows two fundamental problems:

  1. People should not trust corporations. They never work in your best interest.
  2. Tech Cos need to educate engineers in humanities and the bigger picture. Decisions are too big.

Just used the flashlight feature on my iPad for the very first time. Can confirm that you feel like an idiot while using it, and after.

All I am saying is that if there was epic snow this Christmas, that I’d be fine with that. So would my wife. And yet, she doesn’t like the plan of moving to Montana. Smh.

Normally I’d pack in only a GR1, but I’m bringing a bunch of extra stuff for meetings this trip, barely fits in the GR1. (Most won’t come back with me.) Whew, tight fit.
