It's a MacBook. Not a MacBook Pro. This machine is for general, simple computing tasks - Word Processing, Facebook, Twitter, online shopping, etc. It is not meant for heavy computational tasks, like photo/video editing, color grading, compositing, or audio production - it has an Intel Core M processor and integrated Intel HD Graphics 5300 GPU for crying out loud. Those aren't powerful chipsets. If you need a lightweight, ultra portable machine that lasts all day and has an absolutely gorgeous screen...this is your machine!

There's some good tips in here that can probably help you unwind at the end of the day - the most important one, ironically, setting a hard bedtime for yourself. I guess my mother was right about that!
Philip Hodgetts in regards to Twitch (it's like YouTube for video games):
I think this concept stretches to many different mediums now. Your Xbox, iPhone, AppleTV, Roku, traditional broadcast TV, cinema, Redbox, YouTube, Twitch, Twitter, Facebook...they are all competing for your most valuable resource - your time. We all have the same amount of hours in a week and how we chose to spend them means we're choosing one medium/format over another.
If you find yourself doing a good amount of outside shooting, these are some good tips to keep in mind.
Having been through a few job interviews in my day, I can say that this is one of the most challenging questions to answer. How much should I say? What should I include? Most importantly, what should I exclude?
As an interviewer now screening candidates, I can say that I don't put that much weight on the question as this piece implies. But I do still ask it, usually as a way to relax the candidate. In fact, I'm usually more concerned with how a person carries them self in the interview - how they act, their demeanor, and most importantly their sense of humor (or lack thereof). Most skills can be taught, but personality is a priceless intangible.
While hyperbolic there's still a nugget of truth contained in here. Broadcast viewership tends to be declining, but this trend isn't linear, meaning it can change. The cries about broadcast or cable dying seem reminiscent of pundits decrying the end of cinema because TV was invented. Cinema didn't dye or fade to black, it adapted to the culture and became something different. I fully expect broadcast and cable TV to do the same in the face of mobile users and incumbent Internet giants—Netflix, Amazon, Twitter, Facebook, Apple.
