Very interesting. And a good investment if you are the kind of person that likes to take pictures with your phone, but at the same time want better quality.

DuckDuckGo have gone a very long way the last 12 months. I think there are two reasons for it: Apple have made DuckDuckGo a option on OS X and iOS, and a lot of geeks, bloggers and podcasters have switched over to DuckDuckGo, from Google since OS X 10.10 and iOS 8 was released.

The next step is of cource to see DuckDuckGo as the default search engine in browsers and operating systems.

John Gruber:

Would be fascinating to see how usage would spike if Apple set it as the default search engine.

Podcasting in iTunes is 10 years.

Stephen Hackett:

Ten years ago this month, at WWDC 2005, Apple brought podcasting to iTunes.

I wonder where Apple News is in 10 years.

David Sparks, on Gruber’s Interview with Phil Schiller:

One part of the interview that stood out for me started at 57:22. I was pretty close to the stage at this point and Phil explained, “I’m in my job for one reason. Because I’m a customer like you.” Reading these words, I’m sure you are thinking that this is just a marketing guy being the “marketing guy”. However, you would be wrong. Go listen to the recording. I was watching him as he stated these words and they were completely genuine.

Pelican 3.6 Released

20.06.2015 02:00

Macdrifter:

You may not know it, but this site runs on little blogging engine named Pelican. I like it. Version 3.6 is out now and has a lot of improvements. I really need to update but that’s one of the reasons I like Pelican. It just keeps working without messing with it. I would like the article caching but I never care about how long it takes for the site to build. It all happens on the server every 10 minutes. CPUs are cheap.

I use Jekyll for the same reason.

Switch to iPhone for years of free software updates | iMore

20.06.2015 02:00

Rene Ritchie:

Last week Apple didn’t just announce iOS 9, they announced that it would be coming day-and-date to every iPhone the company has shipped in the last four years.

This is one of the reasons I don’t concider Android. I know my phone will recieve updates for a very long time.

Brent Simmons:

I’m totally on board with defeating the ability of the NSA and your internet provider and everybody else from snooping. I hate this snooping business — it’s anti-American and it makes me sick to my stomach for the future.

But I also know that the web isn’t going to switch to https quickly or completely. It’s expensive. To cut off http is to cut off the arms of the body of free speech.

I could not agree more.

Editorial 1.2

19.06.2015 02:00

I have been a Editorial users since the app came out, first on iPad, and then on iPhone one year later.

Editorial is a really powerful app, and you can make it do more or less everything, but you don’t need to install any workflows to have a very good iOS text editor.

I love the fact that you can use it for almost everything, and that I can use it for what I need at the moment out of the box: Dropbox plain text notes, and task paper files.

And I love the slow update cycle, it is once a year. Which is slow, but the app is so solid. I have never met any problem with it.

Check out Macdrifter’s or Viticci’s post to see what the 1.2 update brings; I would check out both.

The Beard have written up a very good walk through of the current developer version of the upcoming version of OS X. I can’t wait for the public beta.
