I review two of my favorite iPad Pro accessories here on the first episode of Your Valuable:

Your Valuable

Your Valuable isn’t a show for geeks. This is a show for ordinary people who are affected every day by the decisions made by the powerful geeks in Silicon Valley.

Well it’s time to fight back. Welcome to Your Valuable:

  • Apps
  • Art
  • Content
  • Connections
  • Data
  • Devices

Announcing a brand new show in the works called Your Valuable! No, that’s not incorrect grammer. It stands for:

  • Your Valuable Apps
  • Your Valuable Art
  • Your Valuable Content
  • Your Valuable Connections
  • Your Valuable Data
  • Your Valuable Devices

It’s a show about how to take back control from Big Tech companies who monetize your valuable stuff for their own nefarious purposes. Learn via hands-on reviews, demonstrations, tips & techniques all about the products that can REALLY help you on a daily basis make amazing artistic creations and upgrade your life to be more fun, free, and rewarding!

(Also in the video…a walkabout near Tanner Springs and other Pearl District locations in Portland, Oregon.)

Season 3, Episode 1

Essential Life with Jared is a vlog series all about Portland, the Pacific Northwest, and the philosophy of essentialism. It’s about finding your own way and never walking somebody else’s path. It’s about living a life that’s most meaningful to you.

‪Just a suggestion: don’t smash that bell thingy, don’t subscribe, don’t name the third item you ate for lunch and that’s your spaceship name, don’t play the social media game.‬

‪Instead, sign off and go make your own art.‬

For the first time in forever (cue the Frozen music 🎶), I have a real weekly Content Production schedule for my podcast, vlog, and email newsletter! Freakin’ excited right now. 🙌

Jared White

Yo! I’m back from various work/family/travel obligations with a renewed vigor to get into a full weekly production schedule on both the podcast and video shows. There are a few major initiatives in the hopper which I’ll be announcing very soon. Part of what I’ve been trying to do is make publishing videos and publishing podcasts feel very similar in the sense that everything connects properly to my #website and is entered into my own content management system. (Yay for the IndieWeb!)

Along these lines, I now have a dedicated video page on my website! This is now the canonical location for all video going forward. I’ll continue to post segments of shows I do on YouTube, Instagram, and elsewhere, but the full videos will always be on my own site and hosted on Vimeo.

In summary, I have a plan and I’m putting it into action. :) You’ll see the fruits of my labor very soon…

P. S. If you’re not yet a Patreon supporter, there’s no better time to sign up than RIGHT NOW! 😁

Apple’s 2020 iPhones will be all-OLED

Apple plans to release three new iPhones in the second half of 2020, including high-end 5.4-inch and 6.7-inch models with OLED displays and a lower-end 6.1-inch model with an OLED display, according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

Assuming anything anyone knows about next year’s iPhones is even remotely accurate: I sure hope the OLED display technology Apple plans to use has been much improved in the color department. Every time I look at the iPhone XS line at the Apple store, the way text looks on light backgrounds really bothers me. It’s one of the reasons I’m quite happy with my LCD-sporting iPhone XR.

(Although…with the upcoming release of iOS 13 featuring Dark Mode, maybe the color shifting of OLED won’t be as noticable because I’ll often be reading light text on dark backgrounds.)

Last weekend we took a family jaunt over to Broughton Beach. It’s on the Oregon side of the Columbia River just west of PDX airport.

Let’s just say I’m a huge fan of river beaches now. You get most of the fun of the oceanside without the crazy waves and wind! (And hour+ drive from Portland…)

Well this is something I’ve never done before! My video show “Essential Life with Jared” and my podcast “The Jared White Show” have joined forces today to bring you a special video edition of the podcast!

Also, why use Vimeo instead of YouTube? Quick answer: OWN YOUR OWN PLATFORM. (Long answer: I like paying for ad-free hosting services built specifically to cater to creators. That’s not what YouTube is.)

Anyway, whether you consume the audio podcast or video format of the show, I hope you enjoy it!

Yo kids, this #website is now rocking a sexy new Dark Mode for you macOS (and soon iOS) fans of the dark side. Hopefully more platforms/browsers quickly adopt the CSS media queries that enable this functionality because I think it’s awesome.
