Could I really buy a new machine that I’d use for years with less storage than I’d had in my previous machine. I asked everyone, even Apple Store sales associate (though it was clear that I’d been using Macs for longer than he’d been alive).
So I asked myself: What do I really need?
I need access to my stuff. I don’t have to carry it with me.
Access vs. Ownership is an idea I talk about at length in this weeks episode of the Enough podcast. Mainly, I think we often choose ownership in many areas where access would be more than suffcient.
