The iPhone 8 and forward support fast charging both wired and wireless. 50% in < 30 minutes. The problem is I still often don’t have 30–60 minutes uninterpted in the morning or at work to charge my phone like this.
Overnight is the only time I am regularly not using my phone for over an hour and half.
I couldn’t agree more. Relying on scheduled publication of social content can come off as inauthentic. Social media, for brands, is a two way street. It needs to be actively managed, not passively planned out to be successful.
I very much agree with a lot of what you’re saying in this piece. However, when it comes to sameness in fashion, I think ‘basics’ is the new trend rather than some corporate scheme. Time is valuable, and going to five stores to try on unique offerings is not something the majority of people have the privilege to do. I would also rather spend my time…
It is definitely possible to plan and shop for an entire weeks worth of food quickly. I do it myself regularly in 2–3 hours a week. It takes very little time or effort to cycle through 10–15 meals on a weekly basis, but to plan out what Blue Apron offers (and what you call “overcomplicated”) takes much more time and is the service you are paying for.

It’s for people who like/want to cook but don’t have the time to go to the store or the ability to do so. Think about…
Their big problem right now is shipping and fulfillment costs. Because of the perishability of the foods, they are forced to prep everything and immediately ship it 1 day shipping. As they scale the prep will always remain expensive, but the shipping will go down slightly.
Unless they can figure out a way to push people to meat free meals…
You’re 100% correct that these meals take awhile to prepare, but I think you’re missing their target market(s). They have three, but the first two are the highest proportions:
