Paying for coverage is a scam

30.01.2015 01:00

iMore:

The answer is: Nothing. We don’t take a dime to cover any product on iMore. In fact, even the suggestion that we would is horribly insulting to our sense of ethics. Unfortunately, not all web sites are so inclined.

iMore is a great site, and Peter Cohen’s NSFW is fantastic. I don’t get a lot of requests like this, but I have gotten them in the past.

One of the core principles of everything I do is that I would rather not make any money at all, than making it in a scammy or dishonest way. It’s just wrong for a web site to charge for writing about a product.

Your readers need to trust you; ads or memberships are fine. But you can’t loose your integrity

In the ad, the lost puppy returns home only to find that his owners have sold him using a website made with GoDaddy.

What the hell? I don’t know what’s wrong with GoDaddy.

Every GoDaddy customer out there should move to something else; I recommend Hover.

Very cool inforgraphic. It’s strange to look at the evolution of iOS in one place.

My pick for best iOS nvALT companion

29.01.2015 01:00

1Writer looks like a nice app, and I would have checked it out, if I still was a nvALT user. My go to note-and-everything-else app for the last year have been Evernote.

And my go to apps for writing long form on OS X is Byword and Sublime Text; and I use Byword and Editorial on iOS.

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

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.

  1. Uniformity and sanity to Jekyll extensions of Liquid.

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

Net Neutrality

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.
