  • Good Men Doing Nothing

    “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” – Edmund Burke (maybe) If you want App.net to succeed, that is if you are morally or otherwise opposed to what Twitter is doing with its API, then why are you still actively or otherwise using Twitter? I’ve stopped posting […]

  • CMD+SPACE – 004 – Paywalls with Ben Brooks

    I joined Myke on CMD+Space to talk about paywalls and Twitter. It was a fun show and I loved how Myke decides whether or not to pay for a membership, which I won’t reveal — you’ll have to listen.

  • Poster – a WordPress Blog Editor

    New iPad app for posting to WordPress blogs that does two fantastically awesome things: Allows you to grab files from Dropbox to post, all within the app. But more importantly it is the only iPad WordPress app that I know of that supports custom fields — which is huge for me and many other WordPress […]

  • ‘Why Apple Might Be Better Off Losing Its Patent Lawsuit’

    Steve Lohr, reporting on a research note from Steve Milunovich argues that Apple might be better off losing its patent battle with Samsung: “It could hurt Apple,” he writes, “because the real threat is not a competitor beating Apple at its own game but instead changing the game.” Bullshit. Are we to believe that Google, […]

  • FF Chartwell

    A fantastic new font that allows for chart creation that is dead simple. I purchased the font today and have been having a blast playing around with it — I am not yet sure where and when I will use it, but I do know that it beats the hell out of the crafting charts […]

  • It’s Math

    Professor Pi, answers: “Why time appears to speed up with age (idea)” and concludes: Life is half over at age ten, and three quarters over at age thirty. Note the rapid increase at very young ages: in the initial stages of life, life itself makes big strides forward. The math quickly got away from me, […]

  • The Most Concerning Thing I Have Read for the Future of Twitter

    Lex Friedman writing for Macworld: Macworld has spoken with several developers behind third-party Twitter apps—or at least, we’ve tried. Some developers are notably hesitant to speak on the record, lest they incur Twitter’s wrath; the fear seems to be that since Twitter is now exerting more control than ever over access to its API—which developers […]

  • The Elevation Dock

    The Elevation Dock might be the most public and most delayed project that I have ever backed on Kickstarter. Jokes were that the iPhone would change its shape long before the dock ever shipped, rendering the dock useless to those that backed it. It was not a good situation — one of the few projects […]

  • Sticky Notifications for Mac OS X

    A new menubar app from Matt Gemmell that does one thing: creates a sticky Mountain Lion (or Growl) notification of your choosing. Far better than using the Stickies app (if anyone still uses it). I doubt I will use it much, but I am sure that when things get really busy it would be a […]

  • Best Buy Should Buy Consumer Electronic Startups

    Victor Wong: When turnaround plans are discussed for traditional retailers like Best Buy, it’s just shocking to me that no one is talking about actually doing something other than cutting some cost or relabeling UPC products so shopper can’t price compare with Amazon. Best Buy needs to be selling amazing products that no one else […]
