    Amsterdam's flag is awesome: Amseterdam flag

    Japan's flags are wonderfully simple and bold.

    The work on the franchise logo respects older anime titles so well. Almost a bummer they moved away from the serif type.

    Another point is that all the major providers of these assistants own a platform, and try their hardest to keep that platform for themselves. As such, it would be very difficult to see effective communication between them as they compete tirelessly for the top spot in your mind. This also keeps smaller companies from growing to accommodate more universal access (like how you have the same app on your Android phone in your pocket and iPad on the couch) because they don't have the data to access or mindshare to be accepted.

    Hopefully this will change but as it stands, the ones with power to build these systems at level we expect want to control it all but can't.

    Will do! Is there a particular email you'd like it sent to that makes it easier?

    This is a neat tool Keni! We're a fully remote team of 30ish people so having some idea of when people are around (not everyone has a normal 9-5 schedule either) is great. Trying it out!

    Others have given more detailed answers so I'll save time for you and +1 the positive reactions. I've had my MB for a year and a half now and have designed identities, websites, and apps through Sketch, Affinity, and Adobe software. I wouldn't attempt to do anything heavy in something like After Effects, but even Photoshop can deal with 14MP RAW files with just a pinch of patience.

    Moving to a new gig and thinking of swapping up for a new 2016 MBP, but only because it may end up being my primary machine which would need some more power for motion and video. If it wasn't for those things, I'd have no problems sticking with this little spark.
