Earlier this week, I attended a screening of General Magic at Austin Film Society. The documentary tells the story of how General Magic attempted to change the world by shipping the first handheld “personal communicator” in the 90’s. Although the product and company ultimately failed, their ideas went on to influence the technology we use every day. After the film, one of the panelists showed off an original device, which still boots 20+ years later!
This is a fantastic film for anyone interested in Apple or mobile technology in general.

Took a quick day trip to Solvang to celebrate Julefest. Of course, when you’re in Solvang, you have to get Arne’s famous aebleskiver. We get ours a la mode 🍦😋. On the way home, we swung by Firestone Walker’s Barrelroom while the car was charging!
