Not much details, just the rumored confirmation that new entry MacBook’s and Mac Mini are coming. Happy for the MacBook news, because I’d actually have been recommending ChromeBooks for an ever increasing use-cases.
On the Mac Mini side, I’m cautiously optimistic — a powerful cheap Mac always sounds great. But Apple cheap is never what you expect. And when the product arrives, you start to notice that maybe the iMac is not as expensive as you thought, or that an used MacBook Pro might me a better bang for the buck.
Regardless, is great to dream about new affordable Mac’s.
For the Love of Spock is a solid documentary. A cultural icon played by a good person with normal good person problems. The father/son aspect was unexpected, but worth noting in my parenthood’s scrapbook of emotional concerns.
Enjoyed Avengers: Infinity Stone a lot more than expected. Really surprised how well they balanced a huge set of characters and kept a consistent story moving. Loved that Thanos isn’t a flat super villain. Might even go the movie theater for the next day one.
They want us to believe there’s no chance of success. But whether or not there’s hope for change is not the question. If you want to be a free person, you don’t stand up for human rights because it will work, but because it is right. We must continue living as decent people.
Love Notes to Newton is another tangential documentary/film that will be fun to see for a different viewpoint of the same time frame. But also because it talks about Newton… and I’ll watch anything that mentions the green marvel.
Today, we’re announcing that Pinterest has entered into an agreement to transfer ownership of Instapaper to Instant Paper, Inc., a new company owned and operated by the same people who’ve been working on Instapaper since it was sold to betaworks by Marco Arment in 2013.
Instapaper is probably the most continually installed app on my iPhone. I bought the original iPad daydreaming about using it. My saved for later articles directly represents my interests, intentions and state of mind throughout the years. I’ve gone months without opening it and hours with only it open.
Right now it shares an uncomfortable balance with Safari’s Reading list — but if I want to highlight and take notes, it’s what I use to export the notes in Markdown to Day One.
Instapaper is an App which I have bought, subscribed, abandoned and reinstalled. It’s an App I care about and I’m hopeful this is good news.
Often I’ll want to see the difference between two releases on GitHub. Typically there is a CHANGELOG that will tell me a between versions but what if I want to see a diff between two versions that aren’t sequential? GitHub offers a way to do this. […]
Over the past 2 weeks I’ve been using my personal MacBook (Retina, 12-inch, Early 2016) as my daily driver — while my job’s MacBook Pro 2015 is in the shop for a keyboard/trackpad issue. Very surprised of how well it performs, and how used I’ve gotten to the keyboard.
Apple is considering creating a single subscription offering that would encompass its original TV shows, music service and magazine articles […]
Very compelling. We’re currently a Spotify and Netflix home — and I enjoy both services. But if Apple’s tv offering has an interesting show lineup, enough back catalog fillers like Netflix, and a good combo price for all, I’d consider it.
