Inventory Update (Q4/20)

This is a quarterly update and review of new tools and products I have recently added to my personal productivity stack.

+ Added to Inventory
  • Autonomous SmartDesk 2
    It looks like we’ll all have to work from home a little while longer, so I finally decided to invest in a proper home office setup. After some Twitter research, I eventually settled on the Autonomous SmartDesk2. Pretty happy with it so far.
  • Autonomous ErgoChair 2
    Related to the above. The chair is great, but I hate that I can’t fit the armrests under the desk – is there an ergonomic reason for this or just poor design?
  • Comandante C40 MK3
    Upgraded my coffee stack (which has a major impact on my productivity) with a Comandate C40 grinder, which not only looks and feels fantastic but also gives me a way more consistent grind size than my old Hario. Recommended.
Removed from Inventory
  • Superhuman
    This wasn’t an easy decision. As I pointed out before, Superhuman is *by far* the best email client ever built – and it will only get better as they add more integrations with other tools. Superhuman would save me at least 30 min per day at work … the problem is, I can’t actually use it at work (security reasons). This has made a little difficult for me to justify the $30 price tag.
? Testing
  • I’ve been playing around with different audio-first social apps in the last couple of months. Clubhouse has been particularly fun (don’t believe everything you read about it on Twitter); Sonar also has a couple very interesting ideas.
  • I’m experimenting with different widgets in iOS 14. If you have any recommendations, please let me know.
