Point and shoots are definitely on their last legs but there are still some very specific situations where I recommend them to very specific people. Good to see my favourite “tough” camera, the Olympus TG-5, came out on top.
I love these “inside baseball” stories of how indie developers go about creating their work.
There are a lot of iOS apps that offer varying versions and methods for doing this with varying levels of success and utility. While I like Gemini Photos’ methodology, because I keep my photo library pretty minimal on my iPhone, it’s not a “necessary” app for me. And, with a subscription pricing model or a flat rate of $15, the price point may be steep for a casual user. That being said, if you’re running out of space on your iPhone, give the three-day free trial a shot to see if the app can save you some space.
I’ve used 1Password for years and love it. My wife is the typical non-techy who didn’t like trying to come up with a new password for every web site so she used the same one everywhere – Sydney1234. I showed her the error of her ways by “hacking” her favourite shopping site and now she loves using 1Password.
Along with sending out press invites today, Apple confirmed they will be livestreaming the 2018 WWDC Keynote for those of us unable to be there in person.
This used to be a much more devastating issue but now it’s just an annoyance. Still, nice little utility to have (yes – I know you can just remap Command+Q).
It feels as if we are at a real inflection point. We can go down the path of allowing marketers unfettered access to all the data they can possible vacuum up about us, giving up privacy in favor of “better” advertisements, or we can try, using any number of personal, governmental and software/hardware-based solutions as we can develop, to lock them out of our lives.
It’s easy to take potshots at Asbestos, a proud Canadian town with a terrible, sad history. I’m very impressed that Tom Scott treated it with dignity and respect.
I love reading about these kinds of experiments even if I only understand about every third word.
8:40am. I’ve signed a risk assessment and promised not to take any photos. WE’RE GOING TO THE SCIENCE MUSEUM— Simon Smith (@simonfromharlow) May 21, 2018 I have no idea who Simon Smith is but this has got to be the … Continued
“Fed up” may be a misleading characterization of one of this loosely formed union’s “demands” but I agree the issue of free trials is a sticking point. I try out (and therefore buy) much less software from the iOS App Store than I ever did with the old shareware model specifically because I can’t “try before I buy” iOS apps.
Texas Resistance: I have a feeling that the vast majority of people on Twitter are not aware of how to take advantage of Twitter’s search capabilities. I’ve had people assume I spent a long time finding something when it took … Continued
My wife is a huge Seinfeld fan and I’m a huge fan of massaging data like this so we’re both happy.
Unfortunately, the panorama doesn’t include some of the more famous London skyline images.
These kinds of things fascinate me. For the record, I hear “Laurel”. Our 12-year-old son hears “Yanny”. But my Australian wife hears “yearly”. Weirdo.
You can skip ahead to 2:16:45 to see Cook’s speech. I couldn’t watch it because….well…it’s Duke.
This doesn’t feel like the “usual” money-grubbing lawsuit. I know anecdotes don’t equal data but this is a very widespread issue.
What an incredible story of a medical marvel and a kind, caring man.
My mother was a crossword solving fiend and would have loved competing in this tournament. Even if you’re not a high-level New York Times crossword solver, it’s a good story.
What a fascinating look at the population changes of Manhattan throughout the day and week.
The Guardian: Almost everyone wears glasses at some point in their lives. In developed countries, the rule of thumb is that around 70% of adults need corrective lenses to see well. Over the last generation, just two companies have risen … Continued
This is really interesting. It makes sense that children don’t “need” to be taught skills they aren’t likely to ever need but it’s hard to let go of the analog clock.
This is wild and a little scary.
Many will dismiss these concerns as irrelevant but I personally believe they are crucially important.
Ive can be obtuse in interviews sometimes but it’s still interesting to read his thoughts about design.
I remember when this was announced thinking, “Well, that’s never going to work…”
What an incredible story.
Escher is my favorite artist. The level of detail of these scans is remarkable.
While the iMac wasn’t a guaranteed success (there was a lot of Sturm und Drang over its design and technology decisions), it was a Hail Mary that turned into an incredible product for the company.
In my opinion, it’s impossible to overstate the importance of this announcement. I’ve long maintained that the iMac saved Apple. Without it, the company would not exist today.
