iPhone-first

With the added projects this year it has felt necessary for me to use a tradition computer (laptop/desktop), but is it?

My answer: no. And I'm going to attempt to prove it.

I've completed two tasks. First, I made sure files and photos on my Macbook Pro and iMac would be accessible on my iPhone. I keep most files either in iCloud or Google Drive so that wasn't hard (just took dragging and dropping a few files from my Downloads folder into iCloud).

Second, I ordered the iPhone with the 6.7" screen. Given the sheer amount of documents I work on screen size will be important. Over the holiday I received a Saiji stand and I'm using an Apple keyboard. The new iOS 14 provide bluetooth mouse support so I'll pick that up in the near future.

Lastly, and this is not a required task, but I've put my laptop up for sale and will also put my old (less than a year old) phone up for sale as well.

Here we go! I'll keep posting as meaningful updates surface.
