This is the internet weblog of Bix Frankonis.

I admit I believe in retail therapy. Does it count if getting something new is basically free? My phone lease is early-upgrade eligible so I am switching from iPhone 11 to iPhone 12 Mini. I’m wondering if on top of having quit social media a smaller device will seem less intrusive and even less of a thing to “camp out” on. I’ve some concerns about how editing a photo in Lightroom will feel on it. I’m looking forward to being able to use swipe-style typing, which I didn’t even know was a thing until last year, more often because the narrower width brings the entire keyboard within easy thumb reach.
