The folks over at Google have indicated that while no more tablets are forthcoming at some point a new Pixelbook will arrive. That new Pixelbook will probably be my next mobile computing device. That is exciting. For a long time (really since the first Pixelbook came out), I have wanted to get a Pixelbook. I’m not entirely sure what benefit it will have to my writing productivity. Outside of that realization and in full acceptance of it, I still want to buy a Pixelbook. Maybe that is just one of those things that will eventually happen.
Earlier tonight I bought a copy of Ready Player One by Earnst Cline on audiobook from Google Play Books. I had no idea when the purchase was made that it was narrated by Wil Wheaton. During the first twenty minutes it has not been super distracting, but something about it is a bit distracting. It appears that Wil has narrated a lot of books. That is interesting to say the least. I’m a little bit surprised that tonight is the first time I have run into a book narrated by Wil. After another 20 minutes I have managed to start ignoring who is narrating the book and just consume the content. Listening to music probably is a better match for writing. Listening to an audiobook is typically not the best way to actively engage in writing some sweet sweet prose.
