Yesterday, while continuing to develop a document which I had started work on at the office on my MacBook Air and took with me on the train on my iPad, I suddenly realised the future is already here.
Between my MacBook Air, my iPad, my iPhone and my iMac, I am completely device independent … as long as the device is a Mac, and when writing in Sublime Text 2, I can work on a PC as well (only not that well …)
That device independence lies, as far as I can tell, at the core of Apple’s strategy. They make great devices, devices which are the best to use by far, but between those devices, information should be and now can be seamlessly transferred.
Whereas before, my set-up influenced my workflow, I can now honestly say that my workflow is determining my set-up.
