Josh: An Aperture User Tries Lightroom.
All in all, I think Lightroom is totally fine, but I find Aperture faster and smoother. Photos v1 will replace iPhoto more than Aperture, but maybe v2 will replace Aperture. I doubt the Nik suite (which works fine with Aperture and Lightroom) will work with Photos unless Google updates it, and that’s a pretty big part of my workflow. I’m also really curious about the library in the cloud component, and if there will be an option to not use that for those of us with terabytes of images. Sigh. Why couldn’t Aperture just continue to be developed until Photos really is ready to replace it?

What's the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?
I don't know. But it's a good blog for Swift developers.

NFL players will wear RFID chips this season to track their movements
I think the NHL is doing something like this as well, perhaps in a few years. I don't know if it's by RFID though.

The Apple iTime Is Destined to Fail
Some things never change.
P.S. I didn't click it. That won't ever change either.

A Candid Look at the Financial Side of Building Mac Apps on Your Own
In 2007, I priced the app at $7. Over time I raised the price to $9, $12, $14, $19, $24, $29, $34, $39, and, now, $49. With each price increase my total sales and revenue have only gone up. And, as an extra bonus, the quality of my customers has increased as well. I never received as many angry emails from customers as I did when the app was priced cheaply. Now that VirtualHostX costs “real money”, I weed out those users who aren’t willing to make a financial commitment to the app and my company.

What the hell? iTunes 12 and the Case of the Missing Sidebar
iTunes 12 and the Case of the Missing Sidebar:
I’ll miss the sidebar, and I wonder why Apple is removing it. For those who use it, it’s a convenient way to access much of your iTunes library. According to screenshots published on a variety of websites, there is no longer even a drop-down menu at the top-left of the iTunes window when the sidebar is hidden; you access the various libraries and devices by clicking icons in the navigation bar.

We're probably going to have to update Analyzr.
Edit: There's some discussion here.

Halt and Catch Fire Gets the ’80s PC Revolution Perfectly Right. Here’s How.
What stood out to me the most was how, for seven or eight episodes, Cameron was trying to beg, borrow, and steal (384 K extra!!!) to create a very, very basic "interaction" model OS, and… in one of the last episodes, they show the Mac.
It, as much as anything I'd previously seen or experienced, drove home the point about just how far the Mac advanced the world of personal computing.
