Alfred Remote Now Available on the iTunes App Store | Alfred Blog

28.01.2015 01:00

Alfred:

Remote is your personal command centre for Alfred 2 for Mac. Your iPhone or iPad now becomes a perfect day-long companion to your Mac, providing you with handy icons on iOS to control many Alfred 2 actions on your Mac.

I have been waiting for Alfred Remote app for a while now. The concept is interesting, and I think it makes my mac, my iPhone and Alfred itself more useful.

I have never been a fan of most remote control apps. Managing your mac from iOS have never been good. This is the first idea that I like.

13 Things to Do With All Those Blank Notebooks

26.01.2015 01:00

Ana, of The Well Appointed Desk writes about 13 ways to use some of your unused notebooks. A fantastic post. This is one of the areas where I’m kind of different from most other pen and paper geeks. I don’t have a lot of unused notebooks. I use so much pen and paper, all the time. I have the opposite problem, I run out all the time.

26.01.2015 01:00

The first beta version of Jekyll 3.0 is out. They have a lot of cool features on the way. This beta version mainly feature:

  1. Speed. Jekyll now features incremental regeneration and greatly improved problematic code that caused slow-downs.
  1. Gobs of bugfixes and customization.
  1. Uniformity and sanity to Jekyll extensions of Liquid.

It looks great, and I can’t wait for the stable version.

Net Neutrality

26.01.2015 01:00

It’s easy to make your software and services available to other operating systems, when you need to. BB have done it, long after their relevance went out the window.

The big questions is: would do it, when they were at the top? I doubt it. And seriously, iMessage isn’t that good. What about making iOS available to other hardware manufactures?

It’s probably hard to be a CEO at a sinking ship, but this is just beyond stupid.

Shifts – Your new work calendar.

26.01.2015 01:00

The fastest way to enter and view your work shifts on iPhone.

The first really interesting calendar apps I have seen since Fantastical. It’s really good. I have a weird, and complex calendar workflow with Fantastical, but everyone else, should check out this app.

By the way, I would use it, and will probably start using it, if I had the time.

iPad Air 2 review

26.01.2015 01:00

The iPad Air 2 took Apple’s thinnest and lightest full-sized tablet ever and made it even thinner and lighter. It also laminated the screen to make the pixels look like they were floating inside the glass, added Touch ID, and 8 megapixel iSight camera, and introduced the Apple A8X — a custom three processing core, eight graphics core chipset so powerful it made even recent ultrabooks nervous. But Apple themselves have told us technology alone isn’t enough. What matters is what we can do with it, where, and how well. Back in October we did a full iPad Air 2 review. Now we’re revisiting that review three months later.

I love reviews that come, not the day after, not the week after, but either a few months after, or a year after. They are the ones that give me the best insight into how good the device really is.

Camera straps and slings

25.01.2015 01:00

Tools and toys:

Your camera probably came with a generic, ill-fitting strap. The good news is that you don’t have to stick with it. Whether you wear the camera around your neck, shoulder, or wrist, these straps and slings will help you do so comfortably and fashionably.

Due 2.0

25.01.2015 01:00

Due have been on my radar for a while. It looks like the perfect thing for people that want something like reminders, only a little bit better. In other words, people that want something to handle reminders, and not project management(GTD)

I have gone back to pen & paper as my main GTD system over the last few weeks; and I think I’ll check out Due in a few weeks.
