  • Task Managers Make it TOO EASY to Input Tasks

    Jamie Todd Rubin on the ease of entry for task managers. The fact that to-do apps makes it easier for us to record what we have to do is part of the problem. We accumulate more stuff because it is easy to accumulate. The fact that there are market forces driving us to feel more […]

  • The Allure of a Digital Journal

    From Jamie Todd Rubin Over the years, for instance, I have made several attempts at keeping my journal in digital form, instead of in notebooks of various kinds. My reasons for doing this always seem pure. I type faster than I handwrite. It My typing is not illegible when I type faster. My hands grow […]

  • A Programmer’s iPad Setup

    Nipun Batra shares how he setup his iPad to do development. I like Blink Shell more than a-Shell. I have also found that FTP clients like SecureShell aren’t as nice as using SCP and transferring a zipped file. Moving a zipped file is so much faster and more reliable. I wonder what impact more RAM […]

  • MKBHD on being a YouTuber

    I like that he acknowledges the ‘luck’ factor in turning Youtube, or anything creative, into a job. It does take the right confluence of events happening at the right time to have it turn into a career.

  • James – Note Making and Linking in Craft

    James gives us a nice walkthrough of how he takes notes and links them in Craft. Also HyperCard reference FTW.

  • DailyTekk on Brydge iPad Pro Keyboard Case

    I had the first generation Brydge keyboard for my iPad Pro and I loved it. But owning the Apple Magic Keyboard, I haven’t used it at all in over a year. It still works better on my lap than the Apple keyboard. The function row does look interesting on this, but it still feels like […]

  • Linus on iPad Pro

    Balanced and hillarious take on the new iPad Pro. Enjoyed the comparison of Apple saying in the Epic trial that iOS was made to be safe for babies, and yet they market it as a professional device. Now, I do think that some of this sentiment comes from the people just wanting to do things […]

  • James Eaton – Creating a System for Success

    If you’re system was broken before and you don’t change it the tool won’t make a difference. 1000% agreed. This is why people change task managers all the time. Their usage is broken so they pick a new tool to “fix” it. They end up with the same broken system in a new tool eventually […]
