Way better alternative to Calendly and Google's built-in availability/meeting booking service because its free plan lets you connect to different calendar accounts. It also has the nicest design among its competitors

Perplexity AI search: Ask Anything
Perplexity AI search: Ask Anything

Easy recommend for literally anyone and everyone to use—a lot of the searches you’re making on Google would actually be better to make here. So many of the results on google are just spammy ad farms with junky filler text, and you often have to visit and skim multiple links to figure out the answer to your search. Ask Perplexity anything that requires some nuance or actually involves piecing together information from different searches and it gives you a really good report with footnotes and citations summarizing it all. You can even filter it so it gathers information only from particular kinds of sources like Reddit or academic articles. I use it a lot for tech troubleshooting, curiosities, review summaries, and health questions. Perplexity’s also pretty generous about

Stouchi Continuity Camera Mount, iPhone Webcam Mount with MagSafe for Mac Desktops and Displays
You can use your phone as your Mac's webcam if your iPhone and Mac have the latest software; it works as easily as AirPod pairing in my experience. This particular mount also lets you mount on tripods. (fyi, only iPhones 12 and up have the built-in magnetic ring aka MagSafe in the back that lets you use this mount)

Obsidian - Sharpen your thinking
Kinda big learning curve but worth it imo. You can link notes together and basically create your own personal Wikipedia/digital brain. I also use this as my journal. And all the notes are future-proof cause they're stored as plain text files. There's a very large extensions/plugins community too

Flow – Pomodoro timer for Mac, iPhone, and iPad
Flow – Pomodoro timer for Mac, iPhone, and iPad

Personally I don't really use this anymore* but this is the best pomodoro timer I've found if you want to try this technique

*I prefer Pandan's more passive approach cause it gently nudges you that you've been on the computer every 20 mins)
