What's in your Simplenote? →
Some of the old timers may remember one of Apple’s most famous ad campaigns – “What’s on your Powerbook?”. In it, celebrities and some regular folk were pictured with their Powerbooks and revealed in text were some of the things they used it for. Even back then, I was highly fascinated by…
chrisbowler: Shawn Blanc posted an excellent review of the new Simplenote. It’s a good summary of the added features in version 3, while also giving folks who don’t use the app a variety of reasons of why they should be. I am a huge fan and constant user of SimpleNote. Having said that, I actually miss the previous icon.
The e-Reader App Showdown →
They pick iBooks by a small margin. I don’t think they are looking at the big picture, or even understand the big picture reading their review. Substantially more titles, combined with access on a lot more platforms make the Kindle a much better choice. Apple won’t ever likely support non-Apple platforms for reading, making them the choice if you want to be locked in to only being...
Motorola DROID 2 unboxing/impressions →
Evolutionary, but not all in positive ways. The handset makers and carriers can’t help themselves, and continue to remix the OS and add junk. It’s hurting the Android platform.
How to use TextMate →
I still use BBEdit, and sometimes use Coda, but this seems like as good a list of ways to learn about Textmate as you are going to find.
Why Over-The-Top TV Apps Will Win →
This is the next major consumer software battleground. The carriers/mso’s are these lumbering beasts who will do anything to protect their content delivery monopoly. You pay them way too much money, the model is flawed, but I don’t think see anyone else dominating the living room yet. I think the carrier’s have also watched the situation that the mobile carriers are in now,...

Cloud to Device messaging on Android has the potential to be a lot more useful than Push notifications on the iPhone. Imagine push notifications combined with background tasks. The message can wake up a sleeping process and tell it that data is available in the background for instance. This could be very useful for messaging software like Twitter and IM clients, or any app that loads data...

Why Metadata Matters for the Future of E-Books →
You should read this if you own an eReader, write books, or might do one of those two someday.

I’m very interested in this line of thinking. Leagues are generally of the mind that “if it’s not broken, don’t fix it.”
I hate it. It’s poorly named, poorly placed, and poorly implemented.– Derek Powazek on Twitter’s “Who to follow” Feature, aka WTF I agree with most, if not all of the points that Derek makes here. The first thing I did with this feature is look for a way to turn it off.

“We thought about it for a bit more. We want to provide this invaluable feature to our customers.” I think that Apple made most of the mark with the background services they support, but these folks shouldn’t have to jump through hoops like this to provide the feature they want to provide. #dumb
