An article in Wired highlights a key feature of the new Apple watch—to free us from the tyranny of the smartphone screen.

I’ve never set up email on my phone.

If I install an app on my phone, the first thing I do is switch off all notifications. That saves battery life and sanity.

The only time my phone is allowed to ask for my attention is for phone calls, SMS, or FaceTime (all rare occurrences). I initiate every other interaction—Twitter, Instagram, Foursquare, the web. My phone is a tool that I control, not the other way around.

@adactio I’ve never used notifications, save texts and calls. I thought this was common usage, but I am learning not. Misanthropy FTW!

wrote a book about this - being constantly interrupted is the perfect way to lose productivity and enthusiasm overall

Pareil pour moi. J’ai juste activé les notifs pour Messenger et Whatsapp.
