    Really interesting post from Matt Henderson on how he is dealing with passing on his digital information if/when he passes. This is something that I have always wondered about. Two really interesting services he found.

    My favorite GORUCK bag, the GR1, is on sale. Which is very rare. Many of their other bags are on sale as well and I’m really having to show restraint.

  • Some Notes on Twitter’s App Download Tracking

    Nik Fletcher has a good look at Twitter’s latest stunt. What’s most concerning to me is that they always wait for holidays to slip out this ‘news’. That’s shady no matter how you spin it. I’ve deleted all of their apps from my devices.

  • Beginning Minimalism

    Dave Paola on owning less: For that, I recommend starting small and taking baby steps: keep an open box somewhere in your house or apartment, and whenever you come across something that you haven’t touched in awhile, put it in the box. At the end of every month, casually look through the box and ask […]

  • Winding down my Twitter apps

    Manton Reece is winding down his Twitter apps at the end of the year. This kind of stuff is bad for Twitter. Not opening up the search of all tweets to third-parties was not a shocking move, but it’s just another move to close down access to Twitter. I am actually amazed third party Twitter […]

    Are really, really nice and you should have them enabled. Here’s why, in short, you should stop being paranoid and turn on read receipts: It’s kind. I bet you love it when your buddies have it turned on, why not do the same? You love it because then you know they got, and saw your […]

  • Flare App Updated Effects

    One thing I didn’t know about Flare 2 is that the effects are updated automatically whenever they add new ones. Two new ones “Analog Gallery” and “Vintage Galore” were added. Once again, they are nice. Vintage Galore is particularly nice if you remove the “paper” effect from it. I love this app more and more.

  • YosemiteSystemFontPatcher

    I am now using this to change the font in Yosemite from Helvetica Neue to Avenir Next. It looks really sharp, but there are some things that just appear as jibberish the font family doesn’t have the correct characters. I don’t know how long I will keep this, but I am a big fan and […]

  • Using VSCO Cam for iPad

    Shawn Blanc: All in all, I’m so glad to have a native VSCO Cam app for my iPad. Though it’s not a life-changing revolution to my photography workflow, it certainly is something I’ll be using. No extension (still) for use in Photos.app means it is still a Siloed area and there are far better options […]

  • Tablet Writing Setups Are Not About the Angles

    Thord D. Hedengren: The angle and strain of an iPad writing setup, featuring an external bluetooth keyboard, and a decent stand, isn’t a valid reason to use a laptop. They’re the same. No, scratch that, the iPad’s potentially better, since you can move the components around any way you like.
