One of my favorite podcasts of all time. Seriously. Quirky storytelling with emotion in every sentence. You absolutely need to check this podcast out.
Spoiler Alert: The iPhone kicks the pants off its competitor.
It still surprises me what the tight coupling of hardware and software can do for performance. It goes to show that throwing more power under the hood doesn’t equate to efficiency.
I’m worried for a day that I may have to switch to Linux or Windows. The speed afforded by Apple’s strategy is something I’ve come to rely on.
I’m not a musical fan normally, but something has clicked for me and Hamilton. The cross section of hip-hop, politics and flawed characters is perfect. I’ve listened to this soundtrack almost every day since I first heard it about a month ago.
If you’re at all a fan of good music, give it a chance. It isn’t like your typical musical, but it definitely is still a musical.
Great new iOS game with a twisted sense of humor. It’s super addicting and I can recommend it enough.
I can’t tell you how much I would love to not have to fly as much. I’ll be the first passenger on a train to Disneyland.
Joanna Stern with The Wall Street Journal:
“Many don’t yet take EMV because the longer lines tend to be a much greater hit than the fraud that they’d have to pay for,” says Joseph Koenig, a technology manager at Index, a company that implements software in point-of-sale terminals.
What really drives me insane about retailers not adopting chip cards is the fact that corporations are wagering customer security with their bottom line. Companies would rather pay for stolen merchandise instead of keeping their customers’ information safe. What total crap.
I’m not even asking for wide spread support of Apple Pay; I just want to be slightly more secure with my daily transactions.
I wish this bugged more people.
To my surprise and delight, I’m absolutely in love with Ulysses. It has transformed the way I’m approaching my writing. It’s not replacing my journal or quick notes, but it is serving as the focal point for my site; I have more clarity, more enthusiasm, more determination, and I think I’m producing better results. And an app that does that is nothing short of fantastic.
Really couldn’t say it much better than this. Ulysses is truly fantastic a application and I’m blown away at how much it has encouraged me to post more.
