We seem to have an unending want of stuff. We’ll try to be choosy and make it things that will actually be useful and applicable to our lives, but when was the last time you went an entire month without buying anything that wasn’t groceries? If you have the capital and know-how, you can avoid needing to buy any tangible bobble again, since you can make it yourself.
We love to hang art on our walls, but every now and again we feel the need to move things around. We don’t want to redo the entire house, but a change of scenery is never a bad idea. It would be much easier if what was on your walls could change itself, or be changed whenever you’re tired of the same ole images cropping up.
Your parents can scream at you until they’re blue in the face, but it’s not going to make you have better posture. Unless you actively want to change something, you’re not going to, which is why we carry a lot of bad habits into adulthood. Eventually we realize that the things our parents told us to do were for our benefit, and have to begrudgingly change our ways after the fact.
Everyone likes taking notes differently. Typing them on a computer and saving in Evernote or Google Docs is the most convenient since you can access it even if you forget your laptop at home. However, there’s something about writing down your words in your handwriting, and having the freedom to add doodles and side notes without having to change the font.
We love our gadgets and gizmos, but we can’t use them without charging up the battery every now and again. Since a full charge only lasts for a few hours, we’re normally stuck carrying a bunch of cables around. This on its own is no issue, but when they unravel and have a party in your bag, it’s hard to get what you need when you actually need it.
When you’re sitting during a lecture where the professor is going off on a tangent or are stuck in a meeting where your boss loves to hear themselves talk, your mind wanders. It’s hard not to be restless and start tapping your feet, fingers, and playing with whatever is nearby. You don’t want to be rude, but you also don’t want to be bored, and have to find a common space in between the two so you don’t go insane.
Dealing with people is usually the last thing anyone wants to do. While some humans are awesome, going out in public with a whole mess of them on a train, plane, or bus is sometimes overwhelming in a bad way. We use music and social media to tune them out, but that doesn’t completely remove the potential for eye contact, or worse…conversation.
A laptop is not just a laptop in this day and age. If you were to notice, the trend of having hybrid laptops have been growing from strength to strength in the past few years, with notable manufacturers like Lenovo taking point in this particular market. So far, Apple have refrained from this 2-in-1 hybrid laptop concept that will see a regular laptop transform into a tablet because of the extremely versatile hinge, perhaps not to cannibalize on their own iPad market. Still, on the Windows front, there are many other players who are more than willing to take this step, and SLIDE is one of them with the SLIDE LAP116.
Working in an office is only fun if you love your job. Even then, you live at work most waking hours during the week, which can be hard on your body, mind, and spirit. It’s very easy to get stressed, overeat, and many of us never stop answering emails even on the weekends, making it feel like we never get to clock out. This is why it’s so important to have your moments of zen and options for relaxation every which way you turn, so you know there’s a little slice of relief waiting nearby.
When you want to turn your home into a smart home, you know it’s not something that you can buy, open a box, and immediately have. You have to purchase separate elements of a smart home, and configure them to all work together. Only after you have all the parts, pieces, and bugs worked out does it start to feel like a futuristic home that you barely have to move a finger to control.
