About

Hi, my name is Martin Feld. Welcome to Lounge Ruminator.

I spend a lot of time thinking. I notice something then I think about it… then I continue to think about it, then I feel a need to say something about it. I’m pretty sure that it drives people around me crazy.

Well, this site my space to share such thoughts in the form of Ruminations. In each Rumination, I go into detail about something odd, interesting or downright mundane that I’ve noticed or experienced.

If I feel like writing something more useful, you’ll see other general pieces  on technology, the arts and media.

With regard to technology, the majority of my writing relates to Apple. My admiration for the brand began when I was only five years old. In the late 1990s, my parents were on the verge of buying a Windows PC, as was recommended largely at the time. Disturbed by this looming possibility, my aunt Francine, a Mac enthusiast, jumped in to bring things to a halt. The Mac, she asserted, was undoubtedly the superior machine, even in a time when Apple was on the brink of collapse.

Once our first computer (the PowerMac 6500), arrived at the house back in 1997, I fell in love with it. The clicks, the boops, the beeps, the animations… everything about it was fun and inviting. The Mac had personality, and still does to this day, while other computers fail to replicate the same magic. To my mind, no other company has achieved the same unification of hardware, software and services, across such a focused set of personal consumer products.

Thanks for stopping by to overthink things with me.

Happy ruminating!

  1. Thank you very much for following and your kind comment! I appreciate that you pointed that out… it has been fixed. 🙂

  2. John Gruber at Daring Fireball linked to your article titled “Apple and the Craftsmen.” I found it well-written and insightful, and it inspires me to follow you. Thanks for your thoughts.

    I found a tiny thing to point out, which I thought you might want to know (if you don’t already).

    Just below point 5. Apple TV+, you say, “It is the fourth point above—star power—that brings me to. . .”

    It should read, “It is the fifth point above.”

    Very minor, but hey, I’m an editor. And the word “editor” comes from the latin phrase, “nittius pickius.”

    Cheers,
