A good one. One of the few interesting Apple Watch posts I have seen this far.

Photos Field Guide — MacSparky

20.05.2015 02:00

The Photos Video Field Guide is a 2.5 hour screencast that teaches you how to install and use Apple’s Photos Application and sync all of your photos between your Mac, iPad, and iPhone using iCloud Photo Storage. Managing your photos with multiple devices has, over the years, come to feel like chasing a mythical white whale. Not anymore. Photos delivers the goods and this screencast teaches you how.

Check out the latest Field Guide from David Sparks, if you are using Apple’s new Photos app.

Signature | The Cramped

20.05.2015 02:00

Patrick Rhone:

Signatures have power. Our laws are only desires until they bear the signature of those that execute them. Signatures have value. Our checks and charges are only valueless scraps of paper unless our signature is applied. Signatures have meaning. They are a promise. They change things. Yet, most of us dash ours off quickly, with little thought or recognition of such.

I love signatures, and I love how different they are. I see a lot of them in my job(fundraising). Some people have a slow and beautiful signatures where you can read every single letter without any problems, while others, like me just have a scribble, where you can recognize the starting letters of my first and last name.

Pedometer += 1,000,000 – David Smith

19.05.2015 02:00

David Smith:

Yesterday Pedometer++ had its one millionth download. Here is the story of how it got there.

Fantastic, I love Pedometer++. I use the app to keep track of my steps, and to keep track of how much I move from day to day.

The thing I love about Pedometer++ is that it does exactly what it needs to do, and nothing more.

Taskmator is one the TaskPaper app I used to use, before I moved over to pen and paper. And this is a great update.

Great. I love stuff like this, when developers make something to be there on day one, and then re-designing the whole thing when they get to test it on the real hardware.

Minimal Mac | The End

09.05.2015 02:00

This is the final post on Minimal Mac. This project contains what I believe in when it comes to a mindful and intentional approach to technology. After nearly 2,500 posts, I have nothing more to add to what has already been said. As I wrote in my book enough, saying no is actually saying yes to other things. It’s time to say “no” to this project so that I can say “yes” to others (or, in some cases, fully commit to agreements already made).

Sad, but not unexpected. Everyone should check out the book.

The Creative’s Workspace — Shawn Blanc

09.05.2015 02:00

I don’t get the clean desk thing. Mine is always a mess. I have a very long desk, and it is a mess. With an empty hole in the middle – this is where I work.

Mostly writing in my Hobonichi Planner, a Field Notes, a regular notebook or on my MacBook Air.

I don’t need a tidy or well designed desk to work, I just need a flat surface large enough to fix a few books, a notebook and some kind of computer.

Does this mean I never clean my desk? No. I usually do it either once a week or when I’m done with a project.

iOS 9 Wishes – MacStories

09.05.2015 02:00

A good one. I’m not 100% sure what I want from iOS 9, but I do know I don’t want any new features, I just want tweaks and a better and more stable operating system.
