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.
A $300 “gym” duffel bag with a laptop compartment. Ok, now you’re fucking with me.
Taking a break from Twitter for 2018 and such. Micro.blog is much more sane.
Someone is excited today.
Put me in the camp that the iPhone X leads to a major home screen change.
Holy shit. It’s actually a white Christmas.
38° on the afternoon ruck, good thing I had a fitting morale patch for it.
Steve wrote a great roundup of news and deals as it relates to wearing non-shitty clothing. check it out
For 2. Please refer to this.
The Apple battery smoothing issues shows two fundamental problems:
- People should not trust corporations. They never work in your best interest.
- Tech Cos need to educate engineers in humanities and the bigger picture. Decisions are too big.
Been lots of chatter about Silicon Valley mentality lately. Mostly as it relates to politics and AI. Thing is, this Apple battery fiasco is a better example than AI or politics of how SV companies think. Hell, how corporations in general think.
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.
Holy shit. This 90 Day Fiancé is great. I’m just saying.
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.
Man. I hate retail stores. All of them.
Interesting note, the aesthetic difference on the straps are more than aesthetic. I’ve updated the post to note this.
Wrote up my full thoughts on Bluffworks new shirt.
The TAD Fastpack Scout looks great. Wish I had got one before it sold out.
Bear Notes’ new true black theme is killer looking.
Panobook is back in stock, love them. www.studioneat.com
This seems like an idiotic way to compute BTC power usage.
Bitcoin’s insane energy consumption, explained arstechnica.com
Every time I get a Filson email or catalog, I want to buy all the things, move to Montana in a huge log cabin and just be.
TAD’s Axiom packs are just so, not good looking… I guess I should wait to see one in person, but typically if marketing photos don’t make it look good…
To be fully transparent, I’ve offered people who want to buy posts on my site to do so for a sum of $250,000. No one has taken me up, yet, but you should know I could be bought. I mean, I’d tell you, but still.
For the cloud czars it should be clear. Everything you are, everything you have built, is all on the line in this global battle with fascism. www.danablankenhorn.com

It’s that time of year where people saw Shawn and I talk in public, and are asking me to start back up our podcast. Forgetting how exceedingly much I loathe podcasts. And how lazy I am.
I don’t think anyone understands how big of a deal it is that Shawn got a different version of Pcalc.
One of my favorite flashlights is back on Massdrop, the Reylight Pineapple. It’s not the brightest, but it’s my favorite.
A couple people asked for a listing of all my member only content. I finally got that together. Here
A review of perhaps the most comfortable pants you can wear.
90 day fiancé, on whatever network this is that Erin watches is basically the best way, I don’t know. Fascinating.
One of you said you had trouble logging into my site, but I can’t find the post now. Email me if you need help.
@manton my ocd.
Bluffworks has a solid sale on their Gramercy line, which is baller. Love that blazer.
Sounds silly, but the question most people ask me is how to care for clothes. Steve wrote a great simple guide for it
In Houston. Check Hello Weather. “Feels Steamy”. Can confirm.
@manton the app is very crash-y for me on my X 11.whateverisnewest.
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.
When you check into your flight and they already warn they are overbooked and you should check. So you switch from a GR2 to a GR1 to fit at your feet if need be.
I’m not going to quit Twitter, but I am removing it from my iPhone. I just can’t with it anymore.
Launched a new site today with my buddy Steve, all about clothes: Everyday Wear.
In the race on blogs to be the first non-media review unit reviewer, we’ve lost all sense of sanity.
The iPhone X is better in every way compared to what i thought it would be.
If it got to a point where someone leaving the company was the only one with the guts to do what the CEO won’t, then the CEO is no longer a leader.
