What do I use to get the job done?
What hardware do you use?
I’ve been using a Chromebook for 4 years now. This is my only device.
I love it because it’s very fast to boot, it’s very reliable as I do not need to do any backup if the device fails I just take another one, and of course it’s very cheap.
My current device is an ACER CB5-132T with a touchscreen.
Lately, Android app can run on it, I love it.
My phone is a basic MOTO 4G. I’d love to buy a PIXEL 2 but it’s not available in France.
My tablet is a 3-year-old Nexus 9. I don’t use it very often.
Finally, I have a Kindle Oasis on which I read books and blog posts (see later).
And what software?
As I use a Chromebook, I’m an extensive user of Gsuite tools (Google Docs, Spreadsheets, Presentation).
For my todo, I use Todoist. I started to use it in 2014. When Google Inbox/reminders came I got out of todoist, but finally, I’m back as I don’t feel Inbox/reminders are enough for me to be under control.
To take note, I’m on Workflowy. My story with Worflowy started in in 2012. It’s my primary tool to take notes, minutes of meetings. I love the fact it runs in a simple browser and the list/ zoomable philosophy if perfect for me.
For my podcasts, I’m a heavy user of Pocketcast (I listen to tons of podcasts while running).
Every morning I read the news in Feedly.
When I find great articles in Feedly or twitter or somewhere else that I do not have time to read, I record them in Pocket to read them later (these articles are also sent from Pocket to my kindle via P2k for “quiet” reading).
What would be your dream set-up?
I’m not too far from it. I’d just need the Pixel 2 to be available in France 🙂
