Joe Buhlig and Drew Coffman talk about technology and productivity, and how the former plays a role in the latter.
All the Bells and Whistles Without All the Bells and Whistles
Drew decides that it’s time to investigate note-taking the way that task-management is often investigated! This sparks a long discussion on apps (or a decision not to use them), and how to avoid getting stuck in a space where writing just isn’t as easy as it used to be.
It’s Where the Widgets Are
Joe has done something out of character, updating to iOS 12 and Mojave with quickness. Drew asks why, and the two talk about Siri Shortcuts, dark mode, and a third-party app that makes both of their MacBook Pro setups so much sweeter.

Downtime Accountability Group
Joe turns this episode into a confessional and makes a vulnerable statement: He’s a phone addict. Drew and Joe discuss our modern tendency to spend too much time on our devices, Joe reveals how he’s dealing with it, and Drew covers the ways that iOS 12 provides some ‘app limits’ of its own. Since iOS 12 gets brought up, so too does the other looming Apple beta: Mojave.
