The Any-Benefit Approach to Network Tool Selection: You’re justified in using a network tool if you can identify any possible benefit to its use, or anything you might possibly miss out on if you don’t use it.
Where Newport is focused primarily on tools like Slack or Twitter, I think this extends to any tool you use anywhere at all. The new task manager, is not better than the old one. It may have something newer, but the problem with the current choice is likely you.
