    Agreed on the Isar and have had it for 3 years as well. Plus it's a little heavier due to the thicker construction. The only other issue I have is the shoulder straps don't stay taut so I have to pull them while wearing it every so often.

    Despite that, I love the bag and don't plan on replacing it anytime soon. They seem to be favoring the laptop pocket zip to be placed outside the shoulder straps in newer models; I bought the gray melange because it was more protected under them.

    Interesting section on hanging punctuation. What would your recommendation be for lists on mobile portrait, since typically there is much less margin to use? Would you switch back to the "normal" state inside the main block?

    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!

    Feels like a web-based edition of Trade Marks & Symbols.
