This blog is written by Eshu Marneedi.

I’m a technology blogger focused on the intersection of technology and society. My articles often start short but quickly turn into lengthy digressions on design, politics, engineering, and so much more. I have always graded things on one premise: Nothing is so perfect that it cannot be improved upon. I hold everything to perfection, even if perfection is impossible, and I like to think that adds some character to my writing.

Elsewhere

I’m on Twitter, Threads, Mastodon, Instagram, Reddit, and Bluesky, all @EshuMarneedi. If you would like, you can follow me on whichever platforms you use.

I also manage a Mastodon account called Today in X, a microblog about the social media website X and Elon Musk, the billionaire who runs it. It’s mostly satirical. You can follow it if you find it difficult to keep up with the flow of X news as the platform descends into chaos.

I used to write on Medium before switching to my own blog. Many of my best articles and reviews are still on Medium, and I still frequently link to them. You can find and read them there — just don’t veer too far down the list because the old ones are, let’s just say, not the best literary work.

In addition to blogging, I’m also a software developer. I write an app called Citations for iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple Vision Pro to help students format citations for academic papers. You can download it for free on the App Store — it has no ads or in-app purchases and it never will.

You can subscribe to this blog via RSS — as I recommend you do — here. If you would like the JSON feed, you can find it here.

I also occasionally contribute to open-source projects on GitHub. I mostly write Swift.

My Writing

I frequently write about “Big Tech” companies and how they change our lives, for the better and for the worse. You will mainly read four types of articles from me: links, reviews, event coverage, and news analysis.

Links are easily the most frequently posted pieces and are just links to other work on the web — whether it is news, other analysis, or opinion pieces, I read and link to a lot. If I have something to say about anything, I write about it here. Product reviews are less frequent, but long and detailed, going beyond the spec sheet and commenting on every notable aspect of a product. They are not “buyer’s guides” — countless reviewers exist to help consumers. Event coverage is usually posted a day after an event and during trade shows like the Consumer Electronics Show, and news analysis is long-form writing about the news and how it impacts us.

And, again, you can read my older writing on Medium.

Feedback

I encourage you to send me your thoughts regarding pieces on this blog. I really do love reading feedback, and all of it is welcome. If you use any of the social media platforms listed above, feel free to mention me on any of them — I try to get through them all. If you would prefer to keep your correspondence private, that’s also alright — you can email me at e@eshumarneedi.com. No need to feel bad, email is always appreciated. I check that inbox frequently.

Thanks for reading.
