Apple Watch Event “Spring Forward”

Just like almost everyone in the technology world and beyond, I spent time watching the liveblog of the Apple Watch event a few days ago. First things first, the new 12″ MacBook looks great. It fits in great with the current product line, and it will be a great replacement for my MacBook Pro 17, when combined with an iMac 27 Retina.

Since I had booked my flights from Taiwan for this vacation in early January, I had to make do with some shitty flying times, including many red-eye flights, which left me exhausted the following day.
