When someone rents/buys a store and purchases fixtures for it to set up a business, they would consider it an investment. No one would consider it to be outrageous. However, when developers spend a little more money to purchase a high-end laptop, it is often considered an unnecessary expense. I believe this has to change.
Since I started working as a Web Developer (and when working on projects at college) I have been fascinated with how I could sometimes work effortlessly and enjoy myself while at it. And the other times when the thought of working made me cringe – I wanted to do everything I could do except work.
One of the first productivity apps I used on a smartphone was Evernote. Needless to say it blew my mind away – the simplicity, ease of use and the sophistication too.
Then came along a product by Google called Keep. I tried this and never looked back – except when I needed to check for older notes on Evernote.
