Well done Scott McNulty

Scott McNulty: Let me repeat that: I’ve lost 50 pounds in 5 months! Scott and I have dieted together in the past. In fact, it has already been 12 years! He did tremendously well then so it is of no surprise that he’s killing it yet again. He, like so many dieters including myself, had […]

Ben Brooks reviewing Hello Weather: This app is without a doubt, my favorite weather app. Not just now but of all the apps I’ve tried over the years. Well done. Ben’s enthusiasm for Hello Weather reminds me of mine for Dark Sky. An app I use every day and gladly paid for. Hello Weather uses […]

Twan van Elk: Everytime I open up my feed reader and read about people’s lives, thoughts, work, observations, what they ate, that beautiful flower they saw, I ask myself: why do I enjoy this so much more than any social media timeline I’ve ever been on?

Liam Dempsey: Walking through cities that trace their history back to the 1200s and to churches that reach back to 800 AD is deeply moving. The connection to the past is palpable and gripping. I felt this very same feeling when in Ireland. You realize the pub you’re in is nearly a thousand years old […]

Observations on Apple Music

I switched from a paid Spotify account to a paid Apple Music family plan earlier this month. Since doing so I’ve used the service nearly every single day via my Mac desktop, my iPhone, and my iPad. I’ve created playlists, downloaded tracks, loved and disliked albums, followed artists, used Siri’s built-in “What’s this song?” feature, […]

After reading and listening to so many favorable reviews I’m installing the iOS 11 public beta on my iPad.

After a few weeks of using Apple Music daily I’m nearly ready to write a short review. But I can say that Apple Music loads far slower than Spotify.

Colin Walker: Yet there is still a problem, and that is the apparent insistence on the implementation of specific technologies as implied by the guides and documentation. Go read his entire post.
