It is amazing how productive you can be with just a phone nowadays.

@AaronTheIssueGuy it really always amazes me when I think about how much a phone can do. With that being said, I will take a keyboard and mouse over a phone any day.

@Casinoslcohol me too. But if you have no other option or quickly want to work on something in the bus it is great

@AaronTheIssueGuy It's also crazy how unproductive you can be. Whether it's using poorly designed apps or well-designed time-wasters

@sf the latter one being the more dangerous. I'm strongly against using tiktok because I think it is more adicting and less privacy respecting than any other platform at the moment but in the last few days I stumbled over more and more YouTube shorts and it scares me how addictive it is even to me. I actively have to stop myself from scrolling further because it just keeps going forever.

@AaronTheIssueGuy I also have to actively pull myself away from these sources of dopamine hits with no nutritional value, so to speak. I discontinued my Facebook use over the pandemic because the infinite video feeds sucked me in (among other reasons). Now my wife has started using TikTok and I catch myself sinking 20-30 minutes at a time drooling over this mindless drivel. It's hard to snap out of, sometimes.
