1. Calendar 366 for Mac

    January 02, 2017 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    I switched to Calendar 366 Plus as my menu bar calendar on Mac and it's perfect for my needs. The icon shows the date, it supports natural language event creation and understands slash notation to specify the calendar name. It even does a nice job highlighting events in the ...

  2. Annotable for iOS

    January 01, 2017 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    With the huge variety of image editors available for iOS, I find myself using Annotable more with every new update. Pixelmator and OmniGraffle are amazing pieces of software on iOS but for simple edits they are just too much work. With all of the tools unlocked (a $10 IAP) Annotable ...

  3. The Sources and Methods Podcast [Link]

    December 26, 2016 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    The Sources and Methods podcast is a good interview show with a wide variety of guests. I was lucky enough to be invited on this week’s episode. Alex and I talked about using DEVONthink, social media, and the value proposition for privacy. I think it was a fun conversation ...

  4. DEVONthink Formatted Notes

    December 19, 2016 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    Most of my information is captured as plain text. I love text files. But, sometimes an image or a bit of formatting actually does help document things more precisely. Writing notes in Markdown with image links is possible but it’s not enjoyable. This is especially true when working on ...

  5. Evernote, Humans, and Machines

    December 19, 2016 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    The recent Evernote privacy policy brought about considerable response from the nerds.

    Here’s the relevant section many are concerned with (highlighting is mine):

    The latest update to the Privacy Policy allows some Evernote employees to exercise oversight of machine learning technologies applied to account content, subject to the limits ...

  6. Direct Links to DEVONthink Groups and Tags

    December 19, 2016 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    I’m a huge fan of DEVONthink for iOS . It’s one of my favorite apps released in 2016. But there are still some frustrating gaps and non-obvious features. Accessing favorite tags and groups takes far too much exploring and is not supported by the standard URL scheme. But, it ...

    This is not new but I forget about the feature every week. 3D Touch the phone app on iOS to access favorites and other quick access features.

    Phone 3D Touch

    I’m not sure of the right way for Apple to educate users about all of these iOS features but I doubt most ...

  8. The Buckley Times

    December 11, 2016 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    I’m no fan of William F. Buckley’s philosophies. I rarely watched him when he was alive. Recently I’ve been taken by a sense of loss for his style. Whether I agreed with his opinions or not, he had them and he was not one to avoid a ...

  9. The Evolution of OmniFocus

    December 10, 2016 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    My history with OmniFocus goes back to OmniOutliner on the Mac and the miraculous Kinkless GTD (thanks Ethan!). Those early days with Kinkless and GTD felt a bit revolutionary. Then The Omni Group released OmniFocus and set a the gold standard in task management for both Mac and iOS. The ...
