  • We’re Suckers for Purported Features

    How many times have I purchased tech on the promise of it helping me do something that I’ve never even thought about doing. – Greg Morris My last phone was an SE2 which got upgraded after 1 year, but only because my daughter was getting a phone and we didn’t want to purchase her a […]

  • Greg on Followers and Supporters

    Greg talked about how supporters are far more valuable to creators than followers. The gist is that followers just read your stuff, supporters actually pay for it in some way. His thoughts remind me a lot of the 1000 true fans someone needs to create a viable thing. I diverge from Greg though in going […]

  • Yup AirPlay is Kind of Broken

    In this article Jason Snell laments the state of AirPlay on macOS and I totally agree it’s broken. I have 2 Sonos speakers in my office. One Sonos One and one Sonos Roam. The Roam does double duty as it moves around the house a few times a week to be a speaker for others […]

  • DailyTekk on being Successful

    Specifically I like Chris’ thoughts on finding a frontier. I started with WordPress in 2008 when it was very much a frontier and it’s why I have the coding career I have today. It’s why many people subscribe to my site and still are interested in what I have to say. I also think I’m […]

  • A look at how Josh Kaufman does research and reading

    I’d love to be like Josh and get to spend 75% of my day reading. I mean I get to spend a decent amount of time reading books or articles, but I’d prefer to do more. I also like his unlimited book budget, which I don’t have. Check the article out for his reading process, […]

  • Allen Pike on cross-platform software development

    Interesting post from Allen Pike about the tradeoffs we make with cross-platform development. It seems to come down to the ability of a team to keep native products in sync across platforms which gets harder with more platforms and bigger teams. I for one am fine with what 1Password is doing with Eletron. Seems to […]

  • Josh Duffney’s Writing Workflow

    I always enjoy when people share their workflows.

  • The right price for parking isn’t free

    Daniel Herriges at Strong Towns Many of us have a notion that because parking in the public right-of-way is so ordinarily offered to the public for free, that “free” is its natural and correct price. In the case above Herriges is talking about people that charge for parking during the state fair. Parking has a […]

  • The problem isn’t your smartphone

    From Thord D. Hedengren on his dumbphone experiment There are many good things with, and about, smartphones. The problem isn’t the device, it’s our inability to handle it. It’s not just the phone either, the same can be said about the iPad. It’s the apps and the services construed to keep you interested. I don’t […]

  • Max Tech on M1 iPad Issues

    Good look at the issues with the M1 iPad and iPadOS 14 (and still 15). None of them are in the class I entirely discount when someone complains the iPad doesn’t work like the computer they’re used to. Two weeks into owning the M1 iPad Pro, I like it. No regrets in the decsion since […]
