Which means that every spare minute, second, etc. counts–each is a chance to sneak in just a tiny bit of productivity.
(So what am I doing now, you ask. This is my gift to you: a chance to take a quick break, and hopefully, crack a smile.)
So that leads me to wonder what is more efficient: letting the computer mysteriously remember and then insert my username into the necessary box OR just typing my username in myself.
See, letting the name autofill usually means I have to hit the little drop-down box and click on my moniker; it’s helpful, but it necessitates an extra step where my hand goes to the mouse pad and away from the keyboard.
If you simply type in the username yourself–something we all do frequently enough that the series of letter/number insertions is likely an expedited process–then your hands stay on the keyboard, allowing you to easily hit enter after you’ve finished.
I’m starting to think that this frequently used, supposedly time-saving strategy is a crock. Are we all being duped?
And anyways … how the heck to all of these computers know my name?
I recently finished writing an article detailing the many modern amenities available to those staying at Palmer Station on Antarctica, a contradiction to the picture your mind may paint of penguins and polar ice caps.
I’m currently writing a 20-page paper about the less-obvious differences between breast and ovarian cancers, attempting to discern why the former is so much more “popular,” when studied from a marketing standpoint.
This trend is apparently continuing into my personal life as I munch on the crackers I bought from Whole Foods in between bites of a Taco Bell burrito.
