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.

How to fix adware problems on your Mac

25.01.2015 01:00

iMore:

Part of my weekend job at the computer store involves supporting the customers who come with Macs that aren’t working right. And more and more of these Macs are coming in with ad injection software installed. That causes them problems when they try to do just about anything with their web browser. Here’s more about ad injection software and what to do about it.

Meet Audio Hijack 3, my new favorite audio utility

25.01.2015 01:00

Six colors:

Rogue Amoeba has announced the release of Audio Hijack 3, the successor to the venerable Mac sound utility Audio Hijack Pro. This is a huge update—the first major one for Audio Hijack in ten years—and so comprehensive that this feels more like a successor to the old Audio Hijack rather than a continuation.

It looks like magic.

The Core Curriculum

Shawn Blanc:

And so, why not put together a small notebook that contains highlights and summaries from the books, speeches, articles, sermons, teachings, and other things which have most shaped us? Our own Core Curriculum.

A great idea. I have thought about something similar a few times.

The Drafts Inbox for Plain Text Tasks

25.01.2015 01:00

Macdrifter:

Using plain text to manage my projects means I have a lot of flexibility for viewing, editing and adding new entries. When I’m on my phone, I mostly lean on quick viewing and adding. I will occasionally review a project but my phone is primarily a way to input tasks. I use Drafts for iOS, of course.

What ‘MacKeeper’ is and why you should avoid it

25.01.2015 01:00

iMore:

But the real problems with MacKeeper that I can see is that it provides questionable value to most users, can destabilize an otherwise stable Mac, and embeds itself so thoroughly into the operating system that removing it is an uncomfortable and weird process.

Write for Yourself, Edit for Your Reader

Shawn Blanc:

At the root of most bad writing, Stephen King says you’ll find fear. It’s fear — or timidity — that holds a writer back from doing her best creative work.
