MacBook Air 2020 Review

Posted on

Review, Design, Technology

My previous laptop was the mid-2013 MacBook Air, which I purchased in early 2014. It still had the big silver bezels and the squishier keyboard, and it served me very well once my 2009 MacBook Pro had bitten the dust.

I’ve also used the more recent MacBook Pro, circa 2017 or 2018, as my main machine for work. This one had the reduced bezels, now black for more of a seamless feel, and a keyboard that is, quite frankly, painful to use. It has almost none of the “squishiness” and was akin to slamming your fingertips directly into the table for 8 hours every day.

How does the MacBook Air 2020 compare?

Capturing Moments with Hashtag Authentic

Photography, Books, Review

I’m just going to say it: I’m often skeptical about buying books written by “influencers.” I’ve bought a couple, and read reviews of a few more. Nowadays, I pay them hardly any notice. Still, something drew me towards Hashtag Authentic by Sara Tasker.

The first thing that struck me was how accessible the book feels. It really puts an emphasis on how anyone can enjoy photography. At the same time, it didn’t feel limited. There’s such a wide range of information and different ideas on how to use photography to tell a story.

Making a Photo Book

Review, Discount, Photography

My mom had been asking for a photo book of my own photography for years – and I finally did it!

First step: finding a supplier. Second step: curating a group of photos. Third step: wrestling with DIY software. Result: a charming coffee table book for a decent price!

Plus: get £10 off your first Papier order!
