  • The Truth About the Wars

    Daniel P. Bolger: What went wrong in Iraq and in Afghanistan isn’t the stuff of legend. It won’t bring people into the recruiting office, or make for good speeches on Veterans Day. Reserve those honors for the brave men and women who bear the burdens of combat.

    Dan Goodin: Researchers have uncovered a seven-year-old malware operation that combines advanced cryptographic attacks, zero-day exploits, and well-developed keyloggers to target elite executives staying in luxury hotels during business trips.

    President Obama: So the time has come for the FCC to recognize that broadband service is of the same importance and must carry the same obligations as so many of the other vital services do.

  • I Need More Screens, Or a Bigger One

    In my new role at MartianCraft I need a lot of windows open all at once — most of them communication related. It works fine on my 15” retina MacBook Pro, but it could be much better with more space. Sure I could buy a $5k 5k iMac, but nope. And honestly my retina MacBook […]

  • Dueing it Wrong

    Speaking of Shawn Blanc, this is a great set of tips for getting the most out of OmniFocus. I just setup his Keyboard Maestro workflow and it is great, though I made one for my ‘Waiting’ perspective too. I also added in a bit of window moving magic to place them where I want. Just […]

  • Insanity

    I was emailed a couple of Word documents to read through yesterday. I started to read through them on my Mac, and then I realized that it would be way better to read through them on my iPad with my feet kicked up. But the files were zipped in the email. So I went ahead […]

  • Retina Ready

    Now that I have a new job I am having to adjust to a new set of communications tools (of which there are many). Something that I continue to notice is that many of the less ‘general’ consumer focused apps are very outdated. They work, but they aren’t updated for the latest and greatest gear. […]
