The Air Porter from Waterfield Designs

Joe Cieplinski wrote an incredibly detailed review of the new Air Porter bag from Waterfield.

Waterfield never fails to sweat the details on design. The Air Porter is no exception. Waterfield’s usual quality is evident everywhere when I look at this bag. The stitching is clean. The materials are of quality and free from defect. You even get a nice personal note in the box from the people who made your bag. This all adds up to a customer experience that is second to none. And no matter how many times I’ve ordered products from this company, that has never failed to be the case.

I’ve always considered Waterfield to be the Apple of bag design. Over the last fifteen years or so, I’ve ordered at least a dozen products from them, and I’ve always been beyond satisfied with the bags, Waterfield’s attention to detail, and their customer service. Just a great company.

A Cry for Help: Some Children’s App Publishers Are Getting “App Fatigue”

From Children’s Technology Review:

“It just might be” said Toca Boca leader Björn Jefferey, “that there is no viable business model.” Jefferey was referring specifically to the creation and distribution of high quality, paid apps, with no advertising, subscriptions or IAP (In App Purchases). Jefferey backed up his comment with references to some industry statistics and the fact that he had just spend the past 12 months looking for a new corporate home for his acclaimed studio (Toca Boca/Sago Mini is now part of Spin Master Toys).

Depressing. My kids really love some of the Sago Mini games. I had no idea that they had sold their business to a conglomerate.

Preventing Spam iCloud Calendar Invites

How do I prevent this from happening in the future? How the hell did it happen? Turns out it’s Apple again – thinking they know better for how you want to use e-mail and calendars. Thankfully there is an option to prevent the forced invites.

My wife got one of these last night attached to one of our shared calendars. The instructions here can help you prevent them and get rid of any you’ve already received.
