People don't just cook anymore — they're cooking, texting, talking on the phone, watching YouTube and uploading photos of the awesome meal they just made. Designer Paolo Cardini questions the efficiency of our multitasking world and makes the case for — gasp — "monotasking."

Hey guys, welcome back to another Minecraft video! Today SkyDoesMinecraft is playing the Minecraft Multitask Challenge, as suggested to him by House_Owner! Ross explains the concept to him – do a lot of things at the same time and don’t slip up or you’ll die. As they spawn into the map Sky asks a little more about the game – meanwhile, he walks backwards right off the edge. In the next attempt Sky tests whether or not he can push Ross off the edge by hitting him, and he nearly does before Ross talks him down. Their first challenge is to use a Brick of Banishment to beat up Creepers, but Sky gets startled by Ross and uses his brick to punch him off the map. Ross resolves not to give him any tips anymore, and Sky is immediately killed by a full stack of diamonds. The challenge is getting a little trickier now, with fishing and Blaze attacking and Silverfish and the Brick of Banishment and, to top it off, the Wizard. Blaze knocks Ross off and Sky is killed by the Wizard for not casting the requested spell. They have another go at it and Ross immediately pushes Sky off the edge – then it turns into a murder suicide when Ross realizes he can’t live without the brick he just threw off. It’s getting insanely complicated now, with falling anvils and creeping Creepers and world borders and webs and killer diamonds. The Silverfish kill Sky in the end, and Ross starts losing it with everything he has to do. Ross’ panic ends up leading him off the edge of the map and he dies again. In their final round, they have to dodge arrows and keep their xp up while also defending against fireballs and milking cows. Sky is killed by the diamonds again, and then Ross is knocked off and screams gracefully. That’s it for this Minecraft Multitask Challenge – thanks for watching, and we’ll see you next time!

Tips on multitasking effectively
We are so driven to get more stuff done in a shorter amount of time that we let important tasks fall through the cracks. Learn how to efficiently multitask by reducing distractions and knowing your limits.
* Our attention span is limited. Learn to keep track of only whats important, while avoiding distractions.
* Learn to focus. When working on a task, resist the urge to respond to every email and return every phone call.
* Use mental games to train yourself to have a longer attention span. Things like games can help build your attention span.
* Be organized. Use tools like lists and reminder notes to keep track of everything.
* Spend time at the end of the day to regroup and reprocess the information.
There are many Cydia Tweaks out there that do the same job but I love this one and want to share it with you guys. Just give it a try.

Multitasking is a myth, says McGill University Psychology Professor Daniel Levitin. Switching focus across tasks comes at a neurological cost, depleting chemicals we need to concentrate. Levitin's latest book is "The Organized Mind: Thinking Straight in the Age of Information Overload" (http://goo.gl/hdavb8).

Transcript — It turns out that multitasking is a myth. We think that we're doing a whole bunch of things at once. But we're not actually because the brain doesn't work that way. In a number of studies now have shown from Earl Miller's lab at MIT and others that what we're really doing is we're paying attention to one thing for a little bit of time and then another and then another and then we come back around to the first. And all of these are separate projects that are occurring in separate parts of the brain, they require a separate start time, a separate monitoring process. And you end up fractionating your attention into little bits and pieces, not really engaging fully in any one thing. All that switching across tasks comes with a neurobiological cost. It depletes resources. So after an hour or two of attempting to multitask, if we find that we're tired and we can't focus, it's because those very neural chemicals we needed to focus are now gone.
There are some jobs that require, not multitasking because we know it doesn't exist but this kind of a rapid switching, I'm an air traffic controller, simultaneous translator at the UN, journalists, monitoring all these different things at once. And we can take a tip from the air traffic controllers who, as part of their duty cycle, are required after every hour and a half or two hours of work it's mandated that they take a 15 to 30 minute break. And that means an unplugged disconnected break where they go for a walk or listen to music, they exercise, something to restore all of the burned up neurochemicals.
You might ask during this period of our evolution when there's all this information is the brain adapting and changing? And yes it is. The brain adapts and changes all the time. Evolution is happening all the time. Unfortunately it's rather sluggish. We talk about it in terms of evolutionary lag and generally speaking it takes about 20, 000 years for the brain to catch up with the way the environment is in terms of how it's encoded in the genome. So 20, 000 years from now our brains may have evolved to deal with it. In the meantime we have to employee strategies, just a little bit more self-disciplined then we currently use to filter out unwanted or unnecessary input. I'm not talking about never letting something frivolous or fun in, but I'm talking about adopting a kind of a habit of allowing yourself to focus on one thing at a time for at least a few hours a day.
A review of the Galaxy Nexus by Samsung running Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS).
I've focused my time testing the web browser, multi-tasking capability, Google Maps, YouTube and various camera operations (video and still capture). At the end of the video, I discuss the ergonomics of using a phone with such a large display.
This review provides a rather critical look at the Galaxy Nexus and the version of Ice Cream Sandwich that it ships with. As such, I haven't shied away from showing some of the phone's flaws, including software bugs and performance shortcomings.
Because of time constraints, I have only covered features of the phone that interest me the most. But here are some additional thoughts that I have of the Galaxy Nexus running ICS:
Owners of the iPhone 4 or 4S, or people with just very keen vision, may find the pentile display fuzzy and distracting. I didn't have this problem, but several of my friend's noted that they saw fixed pattern noise in solid colors (often in grey backgrounds) or slight blurring when viewing small text.
The speaker on the phone is so quiet and poorly placed that it makes speakerphone calls almost impossible, especially when you place the Galaxy Nexus face up on a surface — this effectively muffles the speaker.
With a 1280 x 720 resolution on a 4.65-inch screen, I often felt like I was using a tablet rather than a smartphone. I can see how this would be appealing to someone that can't quite pull the trigger on a tablet, but definitely needs a high-end phone in their life.
I'm pretty sure this phone is the best portable video viewing device I've ever used. Unlike most tablets, it's so lightweight and easy to hold, I could see myself watching a feature length film on it in almost any situation imaginable, including lying in bed. Despite what most people think, a larger tablet is rather difficult to hold for long periods of time, unless you're in a perfectly reclined position.
Battery life was disappointing, but I pushed the phone quite hard during the time that I spent with it. At this point, I'm a bit skeptical that I could get a full day's use out of a single charge. I'm sure it's possible, but not without forgoing some of my favorite time killers (YouTube, gaming, photography, etc.).
For Android users, the Galaxy Nexus should be at the top of their wish list. This phone will get vanilla ICS updates directly from Google — this is the phone's greatest strength.
For iPhone users thinking of making the switch, they should ask themselves 2 questions: Will they miss the premium apps and games that can only be found in the Apple App Store? And will they tolerate a phone operating system that is quite a bit more complicated than iOS? I'm guessing that most iPhone users will stay with Apple for the foreseeable future.
iOS 9 has finally been announced. IOS 9 will be released this fall. In this video, I want to show you the very well designed Split Screen Multi Tasking that is now possible with the iPad Air 2 as well as the slideover feature.
