Apple’s iPhone 6s approaching waterproof

So again Apple exceeds expectations in the design and manufacture of things. Apple and Tesla consistently push the technological edge. It is really amazing what they could accomplish together isn’t it?

So the adhesive strip that you see in the photo shows a little bit of waterproofing. The main part is silicon which protects the most critical components. This is really nice that they are finally making this a priority. I wonder why they didn’t buy the company that covers all the electronics completely. It is a strange choice.

Apple likes doing many things alone. Probably because they like the secrecy of others not knowing. Apple tends to still prefer things that lock people in instead of open standards. The choice of the iPhone charger instead of a mini-usb was silly in my opinion. It might be technically better, but it would have saved their customers lots of money and time.

In software too they try to establish boundaries that are really meaningless. Gatekeeper is supposed to help with security but it was broken, and it can be turned off. So just like a regular lock, it only keeps honest people out. Security should not be an option otherwise it is not security. It is just something made to help people “feel” safe.

Study suggests that washing dishes decreases stress

Mindfully washing dishes calms the mind and decreases stress, a new study shows. The study looked at whether washing dishes could be used as an informal contemplative practice that promotes a positive state of mindfulness — a meditative method of focusing attention on the emotions and thoughts of the present moment.

Isn’t this funny? Now people will start fighting to wash the dishes and relax. I wonder if this means that dishwashers are the most relaxed people?

What is interesting when you read studies is that you often see things in a different perspective. Many times we view things in life as drudgery or boring, when in fact they are beneficial. I do dishes everyday so I guess I must be pretty relaxed.

I have lived in more places that didn’t have a dishwasher, than did have a dishwasher. It is a habit to just wash dishes. It is really nice however especially with a really dirty dish to use a dishwasher. Another study said that dishwashers can be more environmental if they use less than 5 gallons of water per cycle. That study said that most people use more water than that when they manually wash dishes. I guess you could measure the amount of water you use, or use a tub that allows you to measure how much water you use. I used to use a tub in the sink since it allowed me to measure the water and I know I used more than 5 gallons.
