I’ve got @amazon prime now available in our zipcode, but I have no idea what to get.
Excited to try @angelscup — the “Netflix” á lá (DVD Subscription) for coffee.
Interesting that Ahrendts calls alleviate “waiting in line” at Apple stores, which traditionally impacts hype. businessinsider.com/angela-ahrendt…
Sounds like Apple Watch succeeds at being the best smart watch (not saying much), but, worse, being an OK timepiece.
Marketing like this is what separates companies from the rest of the competition. @dominos http://t.co/2SzGMoU2Tj
Seeing a lot of parodies of the dash button, which simultaneously undermines and supports the product from Amazon.
Probably the most in-depth side quests I’ve ever played in a game. Great deep dive into Shangri-La in Far Cry 4: polygon.com/features/2015/…
$4500 is steep but it is a good price for the quality you get here: coffeegeek.com/proreviews/fir…
Why is this a separate app? flip.it/MNLiN
I’m really surprised by the amount of support from Apple on “Becoming Steve Jobs.” Seems clear they want to erase “Steve Jobs” from memory.
OH at Whole Foods … one out of countryman to another looking at the ready to bake pizzas: “You see? _everything_ is bigger in Texas.”
The new trackpad is so bizarre. It feels identical to a click. Then you turn the computer off and the magic is gone.

I can imagine the resale market for the Edition to be 30-40% off retail when 2.0 is released. Maybe even more.
The first QR code that was compelling enough to tweet about. http://t.co/3A8hAbuDcw
Apple will sell two million units in the first weekend. They are launching in quite a few countries on day one, including China. There are over 300 million iPhones in active use, with a healthy ecosystem of apps supporting the device on day one. The Watch will enjoy a sort of honeymoon period, but the […]Read more »
The Apple Watch Edition could go as high as $17k — store.apple.com/us/buy-watch/a…
The 42mm Apple Watch (steel) is in the same ballpark as their latest Macbook.
Looks like the new Apple font on those MBA keys.
Half of the comments here are from news reporters wanting to use the pic and interview him: twitter.com/steveblaze98/s…
A chicken/egg dilemma: either Apple seeded the market to appreciate Pebble’s new design, or the market is predicting Apple’s success.
I wish the whole “email is dead” thing were true.
A reason Apple will convince you to pay thousands of dollars for Apple Watch Edition No. 2 later: flip.it/ANSWg
Apple should immediately buy this company: getphorm.com
iPhone 6+ optimized apps should include some thought for landscape. Notable apps ignoring this mode: Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram
No one really cares about landscape mode these days.
Love it when people think out of the box and exploit an opportunity. flip.it/BWvED
Second app on the “bummed you aren’t on the iPhone 6+ optimized” list: @LinkedIn
Oh man, I hate these color choices: bloomberg.com/news/features/…
First I find out that Indy has upped their coffee game… and now I learn a Giordano’s is opening up? Why does it only get cool when I leave?
Okay I gotta admit, that #leftshark video is hilarious.
Google has the ultimate upper hand here, as this has been years in the making (maps, traffic, googlex). bloomberg.com/news/articles/…
What’s the best calendar app for an iPhone 6+?
The Windows 10 event is actually impressive. It is actually overwhelming.
Notification center looks like such a hack. It is so crowded that it is useless. forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php…
Two years of free college could lead to even more specialized ($$$) 4-yr degrees, higher job barrier to entry, and higher d/o rates. #SOTU
Why not just make our basic education system better? Giving people two years of school for free is a bandaid to the real problem. #SOTU
Interesting call by @BarackObama make (community) college free: the externalities are huge. MS/MA degrees the new stakes to 100k+ jobs?
Nice idea, but this seems like it would really overload the home button: forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php…
A reminder of two important design principles:
1) A (business) for everyone is for no one
2) You are not the user
I highly doubt the omission of the magsafe, but could believe everything else: 9to5mac.com/2015/01/06/mac…
Interesting sort of science-geek angle to this coffee brewer design, but seems super impractical: gentshq.com/barisieur-alar…
I knew a guy who said ordering a “flat white” was their way of knowing if a Barista knew what he/she was doing. news.com.au/lifestyle/food…
The results from the aeropress are as advertised, but it is so easy to make a mess. How do you make a mess-free, inverted brew?
It’s great to have time to write again.
A large majority of my travel time (work commute, planes, road trips) is spent listening to podcasts, a fantastic medium for listening to stories, news, discussions and more for free. I am so thankful for the dozens of voices I listen to week in and week out who spend their time (and often paid very little) to provide unique perspectives on technology, business, design, journalism, and more. Here are my favorites, in no particular order.Read more »
Nice items to add to my life bucket list: sprudge.com/26-things-put-…
Destiny was so bad I returned it. Shadow of Mordor is a little better, but not for the fainthearted. #bingeweek
“[N]o one has been more aggressive… than IBM, which is on track to grow their design team to 1,000 people” wired.com/2014/12/disapp…
Destiny is also extremely grindy and has a steep learning curve. Definitely not for someone looking for a quick reward.
Destiny, on the other hand, is somehow what _everyone_ said: amazing art, great mechanics, addictive play but a bad, convoluted narrative.
30 minutes into the game and I can tell Far Cry 4 is going to be amazing. Thanks for raving about it @Spacekatgal!
Roast #10 in the @behmor. Peru Cecanor. Going to take this one to FC. http://t.co/bJ75M1Ljfk
New laptop flair from @CuveeCoffee to go along with my morning cup. http://t.co/DfPIpG97Ds
We’ve released the IBM Design Language for review. Most unique to our approach is the “six experiences” here: ibm.com/design/languag…
I wrote about the bonaverde system a while back, skeptical of the machine.
Turns out, the story is much worse: gizmodo.com/kickstarter-pr…
Pretty stupid that Starbucks is taking quality blends and burning them to dirt, calling it reserve and high end. reddit.com/r/Coffee/comme…
Do microservices spell the end of .0 releases? How does hardware fit in the story? Is there an equivalent concept? #dockercon
Crazy how Eastern culture has exposed itself in iOS applications, offering different takes on mobile interaction: dangrover.com/blog/2014/12/0…
