It's nearly the end of the year, and a lot of genre writers are offering up lists of what they've published over the year, and what stories they've enjoyed over the year. So I put together a modest contribution.

Tomorrow is the 1st Margot Adler Memorial Reading at NYRSF. This is why I'll be there.

Margot Adler was one of those people whose lives are a marvel. She was known and loved by many people who were part of many different communities: those who worked at and listened to the radio stations where she worked, WBAI and WNYC; the members of the…

Once considered a friendly and conscientious service, Evernote has caused consternation among its users twice this year -- once with a price hike and now with the suggestion that its employees could read your content.

Sigh. In a weird way, I'll miss it.
It had a good 36-year run, but its day is done.

I tried out Huawei's latest entry into the fitness watch market; not bad at all, although not special either.
Huawei's latest entry into the U.S. market is a nicely-designed, lightweight fitness watch with a good range of features. But that may not be enough to compete.

+Dan Rosenbaum says that Google's new Home voice control is the best of the breed -- assuming you want that breed in your home.
Google makes it as easy as it can to put the world’s knowledge at your fingertips on every screen you touch. With Google Home, it’s trying to extend that reach to casual conversation.

He's right -- one of the main problems of most ToDo apps is that, when your list of past-due tasks gets long, you stop looking at it.
 
The state of the art for to-do apps is so bad that people are resorting to pen and paper, even in Silicon Valley.

David Pierce, Wired:

> Most of the myriad to-do list apps are fine. Some of them are very good. But none of them has ever solved my problem—your problem—of having too much to do, too little time to do it, and a brain incapable of remembering and prioritizing it all. Which explains why the old ways remain so popular.

> “A lot of tech people I know are going back to paper,” organization and time-management guru David Allen tells me. “Because a paper planner … there’s still no better tool than a paper planner.”

Still, software developers keep plugging away, turning to AI to try to solve the problem.

I use 2Do http://www.2doapp.com. It's fine.
There is no end of apps to help you make a to-do list. But none of them has ever solved the problem of having too much to do and too little time to do it.

Really nice way to see a film - very comfortable seats, a table from which you can order snacks or a meal... Only problem are the prices, which are a bit high.
