Macsparky:

Best of all though is that the app has a sense of humor. It’s kind of malicious but since that matches my own attitudes toward weather, it’s perfect. When you open it up, it’s voice will say something snarky about the current weather.

I love Carrot Weather, it is a solid, good looking weather app, combined with a ot of attitude; I just love using it.

This is very nerdy, and very cool; it is especially interesting to see how stable the number of releases per year is.

Generally speaking, all of our currently shipping Mac applications are A-OK with El Capitan. In some cases, bigger-than-just-compatibility releases are coming fast!

This is why I love The Omni Group, and this is why I always recomend their apps.

Use Safari’s Responsive Design Mode in El Capitan | Kirkville

01.10.2015 02:00

El Capitan’s Safari has a great new tool for web designers. In the Develop menu, there is now an Enter Responsive Design Mode menu item. (To turn on the Develop menu, go to Safari > Preferences, and check Show Develop menu in menu bar.) When you switch to this mode, you see the current web page in the following display.

This is going to save me so much time. Seriously. Why haven’t anyone done this before?

iFixit App Pulled from Apple’s Store | iFixit

01.10.2015 02:00

You might have noticed that there’s no longer an iFixit app in the Apple’s App Store. We are sorry for anyone this has inconvenienced.

Not too long ago, we tore down the Apple TV and Siri Remote. The developer unit we disassembled was sent to us by Apple. Evidently, they didn’t intend for us to take it apart. But we’re a teardown and repair company; teardowns are in our DNA—and nothing makes us happier than figuring out what makes these gadgets tick. We weighed the risks, blithely tossed those risks over our shoulder, and tore down the Apple TV anyway.

A few days later, we got an email from Apple informing us that we violated their terms and conditions—and the offending developer account had been banned. Unfortunately, iFixit’s app was tied to that same account, so Apple pulled the app as well. Their justification was that we had taken “actions that may hinder the performance or intended use of the App Store, B2B Program, or the Program.”

I have seen a lot of stupid comments from people I respect about this. Look above, iFixit are writing the following: “We weighed the risks, blithely tossed those risks over our shoulder”. In other words: they knew this might happen, but they didn’t give a fuck. But Gruber’s comments was fantastic, and as (almost) always spot on.

There are a number of issues regarding this issue.

  • Apple should have known that iFixit would do this

  • Should they just pick the recievers at random, or pick developers that intend to develop tvOS apps?

  • Should Apple exclude developers like iFixit?

I think everything went as they should have, and as we should expect them to. Apple should just send out developer units to randomly selected people, and they should throw out developers that don’t respect the NDA; iFixit should do what is in their DNA, but maybe they should wait to tear down devices until they are available for the general public.
