512 Pixels review of The Magic Keyboard

October 21, 2015

In my few days of using the keyboard full-time, I’ve already learned to back off the pressure with which I type. That’s a good thing, as smashing these keys into the aluminum beneath them is going to be hard on me and the keyboard long term.

I’m not sure if Apple’s current keyboard trend is good, bad or whatever. I have used Apple Keyboards for a very long time, but I might go for logitech the next time.

As of now, there are more minutes produced by the podcasts I listen to each day than there is time to listen to them.

I have met the podcast surplus many times over my life, and how many I listen to go up and down, depending on, well my life. Podcasts is my current favourite entertainment, and it isn’t a problem with a long backlog, as long as the majority of the podcasts isn’t something that goes out of date(news); there is always a situation where you are going to complete it. And the same thing applies to Instapaper queue.

The 1Password ‘leak’ is a storm in a teacup.

October 21, 2015

This is a storm in a teacup. Some of the data is exposed in the old version of their data format. All iCloud users use the new format, which solves it. And the kind of data that are exposed are not sensitive for most users.

This is by the way the reason I trust 1Password, we always get a honest and straight to the point response when something is up. Like this one.

Over 250 apps removed from App Store over private API use | iMore

October 20, 2015

Several apps on the iOS App Store have been found to be using private APIs to collect device and user data thanks to a third-party advertising SDK. Apps that utilize the Youmi SDK have been found to be collecting data on a device’s installed apps, the platform serial number, peripheral serial numbers, and the user’s Apple ID. It looks like 256 apps were found to be doing this, though according to SourceDNA, who spotted the issue, they likely didn’t know what was happening.

The community had always been on my side, so this came as a shock. But I should have remembered Dave Winer’s words to me from 2003, after I released NetNewsWire 1.0. I’m paraphrasing, not quoting, but they were something like this: “You’re the golden boy now. Enjoy it. They’ll turn on you later.”

For the next six months after the pile-on I asked myself every day if I should just quit the industry. Seriously. Every day, and especially every night. I came very close.
