  5. The Problem With Dumb Pipes

    Earlier this month, I was trying to upload a photo to Instagram in San Francisco. It took 5 minutes before I gave up. Do you know how long it takes to do this normally? 30 seconds, tops.

  6. Steve Jobs was right: Dropbox is a feature, not a product

    I’ve always been a big fan and committed user of Dropbox. Over the last couple years the handy file-sync app has gotten me out of many scrapes—when I need to access six-month-old interview notes when I’m out of town, it’s always a thrill to find them in my Dropbox. Along with my sit/stand desk, my Livescribe pen, and my MacBook Air, Dropbox is one of the few genuinely delightful tools I use regularly, and I’m constantly recommending it to friends and family.
