The Mac is a Third Wheel ➝

Matt Birchler:

I sat down at my Mac to do something yesterday and it hit me square in the face: the Mac is not the center of my computer life anymore. And it’s not even close. My life used to be on the Mac with iPhoto, iMovie, and iTunes in particular, but really every single bit of computing happened on my Mac and I couldn’t live without it. Today, the Mac is just another tool in my arsenal, and it’s one who’s uses are dropping by the week.

I’ve had the exact same feeling throughout the past several months. The iPad Air 2 and iPhone 6s are where I’m spending the vast majority of my time whereas my Mac regularly goes days without being woken from sleep. There’s still a few tasks that require a Mac or are simply easier to perform with a mouse and keyboard, but just like Matt, that list is slowly shrinking.
