What product designers can learn from iOS 8's iMessage changes LOVE the radial menu method of doing video or photos. Such a pain in the butt. Now if only there was an option not to save iMessage videos/photos to your camera roll… I'd be super happy. Oh, and I'm looking forward to sending audio, too. […]

A tale of two Apples: Apple follows Steve's lead by not following it. Good stuff. To those who thought Apple would wither when Steve Jobs died, well, they forgot what Josh and I and others saw a long, long time ago: Tim Cook's a pretty bright guy, and he'd been soaking in the Apple culture […]
So… When Yosemite hits, I'm going to imagine that Cyndicate may cease to work properly. Or, at the very least, it will stand out like a sore thumb. So… What does everyone use to read their "feeds" these days? I know Google Reader was popular… until they closed it. So… Any suggestions?
WTF? Seriously, Apple? Like "Photos" is going to replace Aperture for the semi-serious to serious photographer. Sorry for the link dump, but I've gotta process this all later. Apple Ending Development on Aperture as Upcoming Photos App for OS X Will Replace iPhoto - Mac Rumors Apple Will Retire Aperture With Arrival of OS X […]
The Next Five Years — carpeaqua by Justin Williams I came into this years WWDC fairly mellow to what would or wouldn’t be announced. There wasn’t any anticipation or excitement the night before. Just a standard amount of curiousity. After the Keynote, I can’t remember being that excited since the announcement of the original iPhone. […]
Apple makes it easy for devs (and others) to screencast iOS apps with OS X Yosemite: Apple has added a handy feature into OS X to easily capture the screen of an iPad or iPhone on the Mac itself. Apple positions the feature as a way to help developers quickly make app previews, which Apple […]
Noooooooo!!!!! At Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference today the company rolled out a new look for its web browser, Safari. Apple executives didn't point it out, but sharp-eyed observers have noticed one significant change to the interface. The address bar truncates URLs to the domain-name level. I wonder if the URL will "fold out" if you […]
I always like to look at the predictions or preludes in hindsight: Daring Fireball: WWDC 2014 Prelude. Mac OS X 10.9's icons will need an overhaul to match the rest of the UI. My guess: a unification with the iOS 7 style. Maybe with circles for the outer shape (Apple already uses many circular icons […]
Daring Fireball: Kara Swisher on Katie Cotton shines a light on just how well Katie Cotton did her job for Apple. And yet, in the press, she's called names. As is often the case… screw the media, man.
Gruber on Beats Management Not sure why anyone is surprised by this arrangement. Cue has long run Apple’s entertainment/iTunes stuff, and that’s where Beats Music clearly fits. As for the hardware reporting to Phil Schiller, that’s a little less obvious, but makes sense: what Beats needs as an Apple subsidiary is product marketing, a replacement […]
Meet the New Apple and What Steve Jobs Wouldn't Have Done are both two good articles that look at the changes in Apple since the passing of Steve Jobs. But the big story — and the big picture — is that Apple seems to have come out of deep freeze. It feels light, like it’s […]
Setting a Contact’s Default Address in Apple Mail. It shouldn't be this hard.
I probably use about 10% of LaunchBar, but I'm bookmarking these here to read up on how I can do more: Take Control of LaunchBar Mac Gems: Veteran Gem LaunchBar gets better and better Be more productive with LaunchBar, Part 1 Be more productive with LaunchBar, Part 2 A Review of LaunchBar and a History […]
You know what it is? That the damn Siri realizes my name is spelled "Erik" - not only on my iPhone, but on the friends who iMessage me or who say my name in other contexts. Perhaps the type-ahead stuff will help with that. I've always found it ridiculous that my iPhone couldn't be trained […]
A video about Bentleys (the cars) shot entirely on an iPhone 5S:
