Riccardo Mori over at System Folder:
When your main system is capable of keeping multiple applications open, it’s easy to be distracted by incoming emails and updated RSS feeds. Not to mention the temptation to search the Web by following the spur of the moment — when that happens, the best case scenario is that I find myself two hours later digesting a lot of information I found following link after link, yet without doing anything really productive.
His solution? Write on a Mac Color Classic, or a Newton eMate 300 when away from home, to cut down on distractions.
“No browsers, no emails, no distractions: just me, my ideas, and the word processor,” Mori says.
It’s a brilliant (and, in a recession, cost-effective) solution to a problem a lot of us face every day. Why be productive when there’s another blog post to read? I’m working on my own, similar setup with my eMate 300.
Nice to see that Mori is getting something done on perfectly capable hardware.
