fascinating discovery that the battery performance on my 2012 Air wasn't keeping up with my previous 2009 MacBook Pro's stats.
This finding was the result of a detailed stats keeping, taking a sample of my battery's status every minute I use my computer. Of course, as soon as I unboxed my new Air I installed the battery-logging script and started passively collecting data once again.
I'll certainly revisit this again in the summer once I have a full year's data to compare with, but with 6 months logged I can already point to some intriguing differences...
This absurd title is of course taken from Nineteen Eighty-Four.
In the 2014 State of the Union address, President Obama reiterated his promise to bring our troops home from "America's longest war".
"Longest war huh? That's a hell of a thing" my inner monologue replied.
Curiosity once again got the best of me, and I wondered: how long does war normally last? Let's find out!
