  • Invisible iOS Home Screen Icons

    Pretty clever move. I reserve my top row on the iPhone 6 for things that I rarely use. Smith has a clever solution too, but it looks too off-putting to me.

  • Drafts 4

    MacStories has the detailed review of Drafts 4. Personally I have been using the app now for a week plus and it’s quite the app. It does a hell of a lot of stuff, and it actually quite complex. For me the best part of Drafts 4 is that I don’t have to figure out […]

  • WordPress vs. a Roll-Your-Own Blog Engine

    Alex King: Inspired by Brent’s consideration of an off-the-shelf blog engine, Santiago Valdarrama has written a post outlining the problems he has with off-the-shelf blog engines.

  • Snowden Urges Internet Users to Get Rid of Dropbox

    RT.com: In particular, Snowden advised web users to “get rid” of Dropbox. Such services only insist on encrypting user data during transfer and when being stored on the servers. Other services he recommends instead, such as SpiderOak, encrypt information while it’s on your computer as well. “We’re talking about dropping programs that are hostile to […]

    Rob LeFebvre has a great article on the shut down of The Magazine. I personally think the biggest contributor to the failed subscriptions can be directly attributed to the lack of focus.
