Great post by Patrick Rhone about logo design. I’m not a designer myself, but I do some design now and then.

I have always done some design since I started developing for the web, and my goal every year is to get a little bit better at everything I do.

End of an Era — Liss is More

Casey Liss:

I came to the Mac in 2008, after a distro upgrade of Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon to Hardy Heron went colossally wrong. Despite Ubuntu’s alliterative codenames being so much more enjoyable than big cats, I knew it was time for a change. I decided to buy a polycarbonate MacBook.

I came over to OS X from GNU Linux side full time in 2006, but I knew I wanted a Mac, when I could afford it allready in 2003.

John Siracusa:

When I started, I was at the forefront of long-form nerd-centric tech writing. Today, the world has moved on. I might have stopped with my OS X 10.9 review in 2013 if not for my love of round numbers and my expectation that OS X 10.10 would bring a complete interface overhaul that I really wanted to write about.

It is always strange to see things that have been there for so long, such as Siracusa’s OS X reviews, go away. I’m not surpriced. But his review will be missed when Apple releases the next version of OS X.

Federico Viticci:

The 6 Plus restores balance between my need for an iPhone and my reliance on the iPad. I like a big phone, and, despite its imperfections and growing pains (which I’d like to see addressed this year), the 6 Plus feels right to me and it makes me use an iPhone as it was meant to.

The Beard:

The new MacBook is a gorgeous computer that expertly fills a niche that many need. It’s powerful enough to do all of the regular work you’ll need to get done at home, the office, or on the road. The model I’m using is Space Gray, has 8GB of RAM and a 1.1 GHz Intel Core M processor.
