Good morning from rainy San Francisco. I believe this is the first time it has rained in months. Today’s links may be a bit quote-heavy as the team at Revue was nice enough to add a new quote element to these newsletters and I’m eager to try it out.
In other news, I’ve now lived with both the iPhone 7 (Black) and iPhone 7 Plus (Jet Black) for about a week. If you’ll recall, I ended up buying both because I was slow on the trigger with the 7 Plus and had to wait a few weeks to get it – though I was still apparently lucky as some people still have to wait months for the shiny Jet Black model. I’m only going to keep one, of course. (Megan has graciously agreed to take the other off my hands, since I’m now beyond the two-week window for the 7.) 
But which one will it be?…
Anyway, it has been interesting (using this word only to obfuscated how I really feel) to primarily use a 4.7-inch iPhone after a couple years with the bigger (5.5-inch) model. Extended thoughts on this soon.
