  • Svbtle for WordPress

    Pretty nice hack if you still want to own your content, but also want a less — erm — cluttered admin and publishing system.

    It almost resembles iOS device sales.

  • Amazon Item of the Week: Panasonic WhisperCeiling

    I know what you are probably thinking: “Ben why are you linking to a ceiling exhaust fan?” Because it is one hell of a ceiling exhaust fan that’s why. A couple of months ago — maybe more — I received a random message from Marco Arment that said I needed to file something away for […]

  • ‘Suddenly Microsoft Is the Hippest Tech Company Around’

    Rebecca Greenfield: While Apple and Google are busy getting bad press for their privacy issues, labor practices and general big-evil-company wrongdoings, Microsoft has done some brand regeneration, making it look like the hippest tech company on the block these days. That’s the opening sentence — it only gets more stupid and pathetic from there.

  • Apple Offers iPad Refunds

    Sarah Farnsworth reporting on the legal outcome of a lawsuit over the new iPad in Australia: Computer giant Apple has offered to refund people who bought its new iPad, which it admits is not compatible with Telstra’s 4G network. It’s almost like a dare from Apple right? Kinda like them saying: we know you want […]

  • ‘If It’s Walking Like a Duck, It Should Quack’

    Tom Hume on skeuomorphism: I also find this line of reasoning supportive of my emotional response to skeuomorphs: on the desktop I find the hardback feel of the address book tacky; on a touch-screen device I find an almost-identical interface absolutely fine: That’s a good point — skeuomorphism makes sense when it is a thing […]

  • Calendar Redux

    Every so often this post I wrote in September of 2010 about digital calendar paradigms pops back up. (It features a horrible design mockup of a calendar app I would like to see for my Mac.) This go around I think I am going to blame Patrick Rhone for the article’s resurgence: Can’t say it […]

  • ‘I Quit Path’

    Jon Mitchell: If we have any data we should host ourselves, it’s our personal journals. I don’t care whether it’s digital or analog, paper or plastic, but journaling is important. It’s just as narcissistic on Path as it has always been; we occasionally need to reflect on ourselves to remember what has happened to us. […]

  • PopClip for Mac [SPONSOR]

    When Apple announced they were bringing iOS features “Back to the Mac” with OS X Lion (and doubled down on it with Mountain Lion), the iOS implementation of copy and paste was not included. PopClip is a clever Mac app that brings iOS-style copy and paste to OS X, and raises the question of why […]

  • iPad Tradeup

    Dan Frommer traded in his 32 GB wi-fi iPad for the 64 GB LTE model — I too have been seriously considering upping to a 64 GB model from my 32 GB. Why? Frommer states it pretty well: I wasn’t running out of space yet on the 32 GB version, but I can see how […]

    The Macalope: This screen size argument is just another instance of feature chasing. Saying “Other phones have it so Apple must ship one, too!” is just admitting “I have no idea how Apple designs products.”
