  • Reviewing Products

    I have been reviewing some software (among other items) lately and they are starting to become rather popular, that is why I thought it important to take time and share with you how I review things. In other words, what it takes to get a positive review from me. The most important thing is that […]

  • What’s in My Simplenote

    Another meme by Patrick Rhone, here is what I keep in my Simplenote: Hex color values for different sites and designs that I like. Membership numbers for things like frequent flier accounts. Phone numbers of people that I figure I will only need to call for the next few days, and that are not worth […]

  • Pirate Bay Receives Notice To Keep a Torrent

    So a developer sees that his software has been cracked and is being shared on The Pirate Bay, and this is his response: I demand that you don’t remove this torrent, so that people can laugh at Minimoto and CORE skills. However, I also demand the better crack be made, so that it doesn’t cripple […]

  • The Big Picture – iPad App

    Smoking Apples: It doesn’t automatically load the entire story once you open it; doesn’t even cache the next image. You have to wait through a spinner every time (which I’m afraid will be quite a while on a slow net connection). Thankfully, it caches the story once you’ve viewed each image, even through an app […]

  • Less Stress One Bankers Box at a Time

    It is Wednesday, August 25th, and I am tired. I am really tired, I don’t know why, but I am. I have been all over today and just read this great post over at FiftyFootShadows (via Minimal Mac) on minimalism and consumerism. It got me to thinking about a goal I have had for the […]

  • What Dave Caolo Wants From a New Apple TV

    I agree with his sentiments, and the update he posted at the bottom nails the model that needs to be in place. Ross Rubin via Caolo: …if Apple really wanted to avoid subscriptions per se, it could offer pre-paid access as it has for 3G on the iPad, with a lower fee offering a limited […]

  • S​M​R​T

    Shaun Inman: Safari 5’s new “Smart” Auto-Complete has bothered me since the first day I updated. While this feature has been available in one form or another in previous versions of Safari it never ranked page titles over the urls when auto-completing and there was always a defaults write option to override the behavior.

  • Review: Elements Text Editor for iOS

    Elements is a writing app that syncs its text files with your Dropbox (link is to my referral account, if you don’t like me go to Dropbox.com) account giving you full access on your computer. When it came out I downloaded it immediately I am a sucker for any new app that may make my […]

  • Apple to hold media event on September 1st

    I guess new iPod touch’s that more closely resemble the current iPhone (front camera and retina display), iPod refreshes and the new Apple TV. I do not think they will touch the iPad at this event, they may quietly drop the price while the store is down though.

    Matt Richtel reporting: “People think they’re refreshing themselves, but they’re fatiguing themselves,” said Marc Berman, a University of Michigan neuroscientist. It is no surprise that our brains need down time, I think we call all agree that stepping away from our phones/computers allow us to see the world in a new light. Not to mention […]

  • Garrett Murray Sees a Problem with Facebook

    Garret Murray: That’s the problem with Facebook. They are slowly destroying independent web applications with boring versions that immediately win due to Facebook’s population (which at this point is the 3rd largest country on earth). There’s no demand for excellence. Sounds a lot like the Microsoft we knew in the 1990’s. [via Tyler Galpin]

    Last night Simplenote released the version 3 update, a massive update that brings a slew of new features to the very simple note taking app for the iPhone.
