When you slip Spectacles on and tap a button near the hinge, it records up to 10 seconds of video from your first-person vantage. Each new tap records another clip.
I’m very glad to be living in a place where this is unlikely to be a thing I’ll have to see or deal with.

Given Amazon and Google’s privacy record, I’d be much more inclined to buy one of these types of devices from Apple.
A cafe in Adelaide, Australia, is serving the “Asskicker,” a concoction of four espresso shots, two different strengths of cold drip and milk that its inventor says contains 80 times the amount of caffeine of a standard shot.
But does it taste good? No way this isn’t incredibly bitter.
Notification emails are a lazy way for apps to try to boost their engagement metrics. They’re the junkfood of the app ecosystem: cheap, easy, and lacking any nutritional value.
App developers: read this and pay close attention.

I’ve mentioned Paw on Twitter after falling in love with it while doing some work with an API. It’s a powerful visual HTTP client that feels like the kind of professional developer tool Apple would build. Version 3 is out now, and it includes an attractive dark theme among other more useful enhancements. It’s $49 for a new license. Users of Paw 2 can download 3 for free.
This article seems to be missing something: you can still pay with cash. That’s still a thing.
If I unfollowed you today, don’t freak out. It’s not you. I unfollowed everyone on Twitter and removed Tweetbot from my devices. I’ve left my account open as a way to cross-post content from my website, but I don’t plan to log in again.
I don’t want to belabor the why, because who cares? Maybe it’s a consequence of getting older or being too busy. Maybe it’s that the service itself has become less useful. It’s at least partially because Twitter brings out the worst in people, and I’ve grown tired of the negativity. It’s not a fun place anymore. I no longer get anything out of being there, and I’d rather hang out with my family in real life.
I’m planning to post here more often, so feel free to throw my RSS feed into the aggregator of your choice. And if you have your own blog, send me a link to it, and I’ll do the same. Should you need to reach me, email is always a good option (or Slack or iMessage if those are available to you). Cheers.
I wouldn’t be surprised to see Apple move from a monolithic iOS release cycle to two major iOS releases in the span of six months – one focused on foundational changes, interface refinements, performance, and iPhone; the other primarily aimed at iPad users in the Spring.
This makes sense, though I’m still hoping they’re laying the groundwork for a full split between iOS on iPhone and iPad.
