As Gary Leff notes, the planes where Delta is cutting back on recline are planes where it previously installed thin “slimline” seats and moved the rows of seats slightly closer together. I know a lot of people consider slimline seats to be hard and uncomfortable, but I’m a regular Delta flier and I like these planes. Still, I acknowledge that while a thinner seat reduces how “cramped” a denser plane will feel (and also enables the airline to burn less fuel per passenger mile), it doesn’t do anything about the fact that a steeply reclined seat in front of you will crowd your laptop more when the rows are closer together. … [Read more...] about I Am Now a Seat Recline Centrist

My Kannada teacher in high school had let the class know that Swami Vivekananda began his address at the World Parliament of Religions in Chicago in 1893 by addressing everyone in the assembly as “the brothers and sisters of America.” “No one,” he added, “had addressed the members of the audience that way until then. The audience was overjoyed. They clapped and clapped for a long time.” At the grand occasion in Chicago, Vivekananda took upon himself the task of offering “a short sketch of the religious ideas of the Hindus.” As the editor of the four-volume set of his works that was published in 1902 notes, Vivekananda neither mentions his beloved Guru, Ramakrishna Paramahamsa nor brings up his own experiences during his addresses and responses at the gathering. Consisting of addresses, responses and a “Paper on Hinduism,” the six recorded interactions of Vivekananda at the mega conference of various religious faiths in … [Read more...] about The wisdom of Swami Vivekananda
Speaking of vertical orientation, the occasional AIO will come with a stand that lets you pivot the screen into a portrait orientation. Portrait mode lets you view content such as webpages and appropriately shaped pictures without wasted space to the sides of the screen. It's a boon for web developers, as well as layout artists still working on print publications. If portrait mode is something you'd be interested in, make sure the system features auto-rotate; without it, you'll need to switch display settings every time you pivot the display. Portrait pivoting is far more common in stand-alone desktop monitors than in AIOs, though. … [Read more...] about The Best All-in-One Computers for 2020
