This page is a living list of all the hardware and software that I use, for my personal inventory but also to share with the world how I organize my work and my life. Iโ€™ll update it whenever something changes! See https://uses.tech/ to see more people doing this.

Hardware

๐Ÿ’ป Macbook Pro 13" (late 2016, with Touchbar)

Bought this laptop for school and it held up pretty good since. Went through the various free programs Apple put out throughout the years to change the screen, keyboard, and even topcase. I donโ€™t use it too much anymore, but I still think itโ€™s the best I ever owned, for its portability.

๐Ÿ’ป Macbook Pro 15" (2017)

My work equipped me with this top-tier beast. Itโ€™s my daily driver and I go with it everywhere.

๐Ÿ“ฑ iPhone 12 mini (since Nov. 2020)

Started using an iPhone with the 5, then the 6s, then the Xr. The 12 mini is what I see as the perfect sized phone for now, love the slim form factor, and the fact that I can let it rest on my pinkie for hours without any pain is fantastic.

๐Ÿ“š Kindle

I've stopped reading paper books circa. 2015 (except for the ones I get as presents). It's super lightweight, I never have to think about the battery (can last for months, I only charge it when I go on trips and don't bring any cable with me).

โŒš Fitbit Inspire HR

I suffer from hardcore sleep troubles (insomnia, DSPS), and I don't really hear my alarm in the morning. This smart band vibrates to wake me up, which works much better. It also monitor my sleep patterns. The battery lasts 5-7 days, which is also great.

iOS

I only have one homescreen. Everything else goes into the App Library. Dark Mode all the way. I tend to disable notifications when I can. I donโ€™t like red dots so I usually process my notifications quickly and regularly to not drown in them (and keep my homescreen clean).
