Picked a new album from Sign Libra - channelling that mid-80s Laurie Anderson vibe. Also some dark ambience from Radere. These two albums are really polar opposites. Also managed to get a nice discount on the new Tom Ford Beau De Jour - a clean, lavender fragrance that will be great in the coming months. I’m about halfway through the new William Gibson novel, Agency but I haven’t (so far) found it particularly engaging compared to The Peripheral.
I’ve been using some Bluetooth peripherals lately which has meant I’ve been charging my phone two or three times a week. Consequently, Peak Performance has now dropped to 95%. I suppose that’s still pretty good for sixteen months. Also, I need to keep the following in mind:
- Apple claims a 20% for 500 cycles.
- Assuming I charge about 50 cycles in 60 days (two months).
- That’s roughly a 2% loss for 2 months usage.
I’m nowhere near that so I think the battery is still doing fine.
Nick @ Rough Type:
If Instagram showed us what a world without art looks like, TikTok shows us what a world without shame looks like. The old virtues of restraint — modesty, discretion, taste — are gone. There is only one virtue: to be seen. The future has arrived, but you don’t get fifteen minutes of fame. You get fifteen seconds.
Happy new year to everyone. Lots of new books and music are due this year.
Peak capacity drops another point to 97%. Still pretty good for fourteen months in. Still charges to 100% from 10% in 1hr & 45 mins.
