Welcome, Mac Power Users! — Relay FM

April 28, 2015

Relay.fm:

I’ve listened to Apple podcasts for a long time, and with over 250 episodes published, Mac Power Users has been a constant listen of mine for years.

Mac Power Users isn’t just a podcast; it’s an institution. The guest list is impressive, with greats like Rod Roddenberry, Merlin Mann, Aisha Tyler and David Allen making appearances.

That’s why today’s announcement is so exciting: MPU is joining Relay FM.

Okay, I didn’t see this one coming, but it is really awesome to see Relay.fm doing so well.

Apple.com – an album on Flickr

Screenshots of Apple.com over the years. The most impressive is how good some of the post-Steve Jobs website designs hold up, even today.

Day One for Apple Watch | Day One

April 24, 2015

Looks interesting.

I have kind of been a little bit negative about the Apple Watch, just because I prefer regular watches, for many reasons.

But, I might get one at some point, if there are any convincing use cases for it down the road.

Policy and product updates aimed at combating abuse | Twitter Blogs

April 24, 2015

We believe that users must feel safe on Twitter in order to fully express themselves. As our General Counsel Vijaya Gadde explained last week in an opinion piece for the Washington Post, we need to ensure that voices are not silenced because people are afraid to speak up. To that end, we are today announcing our latest product and policy updates that will help us in continuing to develop a platform on which users can safely engage with the world at large.

Twitter really really really need to get their act together when it comes to harassment. This looks like a step in the right direction.

Shawn Needs Dental Surgery by Shawn King – GoFundMe

April 24, 2015

Shawn King:

The good news is, the dentist didn’t charge me for the appointment. The bad news is, I have “advanced periodontal disease” — basically, I’ve lost so much bone in my upper jaw, my teeth don’t have anything to hold on to. So they will continue to fall out unless I do something about it.

Shawn is a great podcaster, and he have been doing it for 21 years, long before I knew anything about Apple, and long before anyone knew about iPod, or podcasting.

He needs you help!

There are a few sites, not many, around, or still around that was there when I started to use the internet in the 90s, TidBITS is one of them. Sites come and go, while some just stay the same year after year, TidBITS is one of them.
