My use of Paper is an essential part of stratechery, yet I needed to only pay $8.99 for two in-app purchases, for which I never need to pay again. That’s a hell of a bargain, but it’s ultimately unsustainable.
I don’t want to get a $800 phone and then lose or drop it and feel horrible afterwards. I don’t even use my phone all that much and I have no apps or fancy stuff on it.
You get yourself a fancy phone and then you put the fancy stuff that goes into your fancy phone and bam, your life is not as simple as it was anymore.
