In this age of technology, everyone’s phone has come to represent a bit of their personality. This is especially true on smartphones, and while some download popular games or distracting apps, others see the phone as a tool for endless productivity. In the case of Mega – the notoriously cool co-founder of Black Scale – the iPhone 5 is a means of creative counsel on the road, as well as an outlet for inspiration. Apps such as Pantone and Filterstorm enhance everyday sightings, while banking, spelling, and translation apps are indicative of a constantly-adapting life on the road. As a man of taste, Mega stimulates himself with games of chess and Steve Chandler’s inspirational classic. Mega’s set is not without its own surprises though, so enjoy exploring this edition of Tech Essentials above.
