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.

The New Apple

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 […]

ReadKit? NetNewsWire?

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 […]
