- Mac user since December 1992, a pleasure for twenty-one years
- AppleSeed programme member 405 in 2009 – I departed after five years (displeasure around abandonment of some of the essentials within the OS X Human Interface Guidelines (HIG))
- switched from Apple Mac OS X to TrueOS Desktop, which uses the OpenZFS storage system and file system
- switched from iOS on a first generation iPhone, to Android on a Yotaphone 2
- planning to use Bluetooth-enabled hearing aids with parallel pairing capability (context)
- Light Phone and Janus One are appealing complements, but I should not expect such things to work with the swipe features that are associated with Unify Circuit.
