Default apps for Siri.

Posted on May 15, 2017 in Thoughts

I wouldn’t call myself the biggest fan of digital assistants. I use Siri rarely and my interaction with the Google counterpart is usually just to prove my point that it understands my Greek accent much better. However, digital assistants are not the usual trend that time will wash away. Big companies invest a lot of time and money on them and once AI reaches a certain point, consumers will probably find digital assistants as useful as J.A.R.V.I.S. is for Tony Stark.

My macOS must have apps revisited.

One of the most satisfying feelings for someone who spends more than ten hours a day in front of his Mac, is the moment when you discover a new app that completes one more missing piece from the puzzle of your daily workflow. A small app for Facebook that saves you a few seconds from re-opening your browser just to use Messenger, or a very simple menubar app that prevents your mac from firing that damn screensaver while you’re reading an ebook and forcing you to retype that long password again! These are the kind of apps I’m looking for and I’m always up for trying something new.
