the headphone rule

reecepacheco:

One of my favorite high school teachers once said “life is the interruptions… not the space inbetween.” I love that quote and have often reminded myself of it when life throws curveballs at me.

That being said, interruptions while working are f*ing annoying.

Think twice before bothering a coder wearing headphones.

Designer headphones: The sound of music

Since consumers have been persuaded, largely by Beats, that it is worth paying a fair whack for some half-decent headphones that look nice, perhaps they could be persuaded—especially since the storage capacity of many portable devices is now huge—to turn their backs on cheap mp3s and seek out recordings in true high fidelity.

We buy bottled water. We’ll buy quality sound too.

Amar G. Bose: ‘I went into business so that I could do interesting things that hadn’t been done before.’

“I would have been fired a hundred times at a company run by M.B.A.’s. But I never went into business to make money. I went into business so that I could do interesting things that hadn’t been done before.”

RIP Amar G. Bose, creator of Bose.

I didn’t know this man was behind the brand.

He always made superior products that looked like Apple’s, in design and quality.

One Headphone, One Strap

For the past two weeks only one side of my headphone and one strap on my backpack have worked.

It would almost be better if both headphone and backpack broke down completely, forcing me to buy replacements.

But I stick with them, annoyed at my indecision and frugality each day that goes on.

At what point does something become a priority? At what one point does something become a need, especially if the objects half-work and still get the job done.

The tipping point seems to be pain. An overused eardrum and a hurt shoulder will do it. Now it’s just a matter of economics and action to start all over again. Lop-sidedness backlashes with time.
