Angela Ahrendts Starts at Apple, Parallax Scrolling

Apple - Press Info - Apple Leadership - Angela Ahrendts. She can't do worse than the last guy…

Also, this is cool: Parallax Scrolling.

$15 Minimum Wage

Wow. That's about $30k/year if you work full-time.

Some Random Bits and Bobs

Booing Robinson Cano

Funny:

Booing practice: Robinson Cano stuns Yankees fans who heckle on 'Tonight Show'

ReadKit? NetNewsWire?

PulpFiction was great. Cyndicate was even better.

But now neither are really no more, and it's only a matter of time before Cyndicate stops working.

That will be a sad day for at least two or three people. Namely myself, Brad, and one other person I know who loves Cyndicate.

I love how feeds are sorted by their content, not the blog from which they came. I could probably manage a similar thing in other blog readers if I use smart folders or something, but that seems like a bit of a weird approach and that the individual blog feeds are always being thrust in your face as "how you're supposed to use this app."

I've heard good things about ReadKit. And of course NetNewsWire is still out there.

NetNewsWire (I just tried a recent one) still screws this up. It sorts feeds into folders, but doesn't show you the contents of the folders when you select them. Seriously… So does ReadKit work this way? Because this way sucks, TBH. Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't seem to be…

Nomos Watchmaking

Bad Car UI

This is a particularly bad example: Car UI.

It's not news that Apple's CarPlay is re-igniting the discussion about just how bad the UX is in most modern vehicles.

A friend of mine works on the UX for Tesla, though, and if I had to choose a car with the best UX, it may be one of those bad boys.

Apple’s Wearable a Smart Band?

Apple and Nike are gearing up for a big announcement this fall? I dunno. Tempted to say "I'll pass."

Helvetica Neue in 10.10?

a) 10.10? I forgot that with Mavericks being 10.9 we were about to find out whether we were getting "Mac OS XI" or what…

b) Apparently we have to get ready for Helvetica Neue according to Craig Hockenberry. That's fine. I think Analyzr can handle it.

Apple on the Environment

The AeroPress and Aerobie Flyer

The Invention of the AeroPress and a bunch of other little details about inventing, trial and error, business, etc.

P.S. Apparently the preferred method of brewing is upside down:

AdSense Opt-Out

Friendly reminder: you can go to http://www.google.com/settings/ads/ to opt out of a lot of Google Ads tracking.

I kept seeing ad after ad for HostGator (enough that I will now strongly not consider using HostGator for anything), and quickly opted out to clear those from my computer.

In general I don't mind ad tracking. I'd rather have relevant ads than irrelevant ones.

The Insides of Golf Balls

You can check out 20 pictures here. I've seen them all before (not those specific pictures… but the insides of golf balls cut in half), but they're still cool to see.

Record Store Day – R.E.M. Unplugged

REM Unplugged from Record Store Day on Vimeo.

I oarked just as the store opened, walked in just after the last person who had waited in line entered, and snagged the only copy of R.E.M. Unplugged that the store had.

I was back in my car and on the road again within three minutes.

So… my first and last Record Store Day was a rousing success!

How I Became a Lego Designer

MAKE has a story on How I Got My Job as a Lego Designer. If I had known that was a thing, I may have beat him to the punch… Gosh I loved playing with Lego as a kid.
