Stephen Hackett of Realy, The Sweet Setup and of 512 Pixels are going indie. I’m a huge fan of his work, and have been listening to his podcasts and reading his stuff for a very long time.

Check out his site, and buy a t-shirt.

Great post about backup strategy. My strategy is simple:

Have one clone, one Time Machine and one cloud backup of your computer. And then make a clone of each of your archive disks.

Superduper! is a great app for cloning disks, and Backblaze is a fantastic cloud backup solution.

Jared Sinclair | Blog | Judicious Use of Shitty Code

08.07.2015 02:00

Jared Sinclair:

Not all shitty code is equal. There’s such a thing as judicious use of shitty code. Your app shouldn’t crash, so don’t try to be clever. Don’t assume that a web service will always give you the values you expect. Don’t assume that some index is within the length of an array. Don’t pass an NSManagedObject between threads. Some corners shouldn’t be cut.

This is interesting.

There are many good reasons for writing clean code: easier to maintain, better, easier to understand more future proof etc. But there is a difference between writing unclean code, and being stupid. You can create a good app with the first one, but not with the last one.

The Fuji X100T — Tools and Toys

08.07.2015 02:00

I have been looking for a good “compact camera” for a while, and the X100T have been on the top of my list for a few weeks now. This is not the camera that will replace most DSLR or MFT cameras, but it is the first really small camera I’m excited about.

Yes, I’m probably going to buy one of them after the summer.

Instapaper is the best; especially if you look at the reading experience. And the highligthing and comment features in the iPad app is awesome.
