BitCoin Fork

I still have no idea what BitCoin is or how it works, but this doesn't sound good either: It's Time For a Hard Bitcoin Fork.

Uh, okay.

Only Apple

Daring Fireball: Only Apple

The takeaway, IMO:

Tim Cook is improving Apple’s internal operational efficiency.

1Password in iOS 8

The Power of iOS 8 – Ole Begemann

  1. Go back to the home screen and launch 1Password.
  2. Enter your 1Password master password.
  3. Locate the web siteʼs credentials in the 1Password database. I have several hundred logins stored in 1Password, so this can require quite a bit of manual browsing or using the built-in search, which is tedious on a mobile device.
  4. Copy your password to the pasteboard. And while youʼre at it, if the web site requires you to enter a user name (as opposed to your email address), make sure to remember it now or you will have to switch back and forth twice between Safari and 1Password. The pasteboard only accepts one item at a time.
  5. Go back to Safari.
  6. Manually enter your user name/email address and paste your password.

This sucks.

I agree.

MAC Address Randomization

Michael Tsai - Blog - iOS 8 MAC Address Randomization

I'm pretty sure my friend Aaron Linville had a bit to do with that in an earlier version of Mac OS X…

Also, "While Using" is quite cool. I'll be enabling that for almost everything except perhaps To Dos (the geofenced variety will need to know when I've arrived home, at work, etc.).

Happy Independence Day

Suck it, England.

(Filler post, heh heh heh.)

Apple’s Updates to iMessages in iOS 8

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.1

Oh, and I'm looking forward to sending audio, too. Could be pretty nifty.

  1. I delete them 99% of the time. They're transient stuff. I don't know about the two-minute thing though. Maybe it does that? []

A Tale of Two Apples

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 for a long, long time.

What Do Mac Users Use to Read their RSS Feeds These Days?


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.


What does everyone use to read their "feeds" these days? I know Google Reader was popular… until they closed it.


Any suggestions?

Apple Stops Development of Aperture

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.

The Next Five Years for Apple

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. They blew the roof off Moscone.

Record iPhone Screens on your Mac

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 introduced as part of iOS 8’s improvements to the App Store, but there is no reason why this couldn’t be used by others for different purposes.

Beware URL Shorteners

Scott Hanselman writes that This URL shortener situation is officially out of control.

I saw a URL today on Twitter to an article on It was a custom short URL - but since I was visiting it via Twitter, it was wrapped with Twitter's URL, so I really started at

When I visited it for the FIRST time, I got this lovely HTTP interaction. That's SEVEN HTTP 301s, count them, 7, before I get to the destination page.

iOS 8 and Yosemite Extensions

It's like OpenDoc all over again! 😀
