1. Taskmator 2 with Reminders

    May 11, 2015 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    The first time I mentioned Taskmator for iOS it was a year ago and it was a newly fixed successor to TaskPaper.1 As a reminder, TaskPaper for iOS was removed from sale and the source code was made available as open source. The developer of Taskmator cleaned up the ...

  2. Leaving New York and Also Technology [Link]

    May 07, 2015 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    This essay by Benjamin Hart on the Awl is already a classic for me. It's so close to being an actual Verge article that I almost didn't bother reading it. I'm so glad I did. The opening paragraph is pure gold but it's chock full of ...

  3. Congratulations on Your Opinion [Link]

    Stu Maschwitz:

    If you’re still having a hard time seeing my distinction between reactions and opinions, here’s a helpful rule of thumb. Your reaction doesn’t require anyone else to be wrong.

    This link was from a timely tweet by the author himself. It's a good boundary ...

  4. Pixelmator Update with Repair Tool [Link]

    May 06, 2015 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    Pixelmator is an extremely impressive application and it's probably much cheaper than anyone would believe. Check out their demo of the repair tool functionality on their blog. It's pretty mind blowing as part of a $30 Mac app.

  5. Creating Bands for Apple Watch [Link]

    May 05, 2015 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    Apple now details the requirements for third party bands. I doubt officially licensed bands will be all that much cheaper, given this:

    Apple Watch lugs will be available soon through the Made for Apple Watch program.

    The license terms seem relatively unencumbered though (minus the usual boilerplate about sublicensing).

  6. Is Pagico 7 the easy-to-use app to replace OmniFocus and Bento for your data & task management? [Sponsor]

    May 04, 2015 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    My thanks to Pagico for sponsoring Macdrifter this week. The new version looks fantastic. It looks so good that I'm running a longer than usual ad copy. Pagico runs on multiple platforms, makes reference material a core feature (like I do) and syncs everywhere.


    Some apps are great at ...

  7. Microsoft Metadata Slurping Spree [Link]

    May 04, 2015 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    From Lisa Vaas over on NakedSecurity:

    That means that everybody who succumbed to the viral spread of the tool gave up metadata that included not only age and gender, the writers said, but also geolocation data

    I'm assuming that some sort of authentication was required to get accurate geo ...

  8. Plex Update Adds Enhanced Music Support [Link]

    May 02, 2015 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    Plex ended April with a rather significant update for music libraries. The latest update makes it easier to edit the music library and provides long awaited features like multi-disc support. But if you are a Plex Plus subscriber you also get enhanced meta data through Gracenote.

    I gave up on ...

  9. Layers Conference [Link]

    April 30, 2015 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    I'm not a designer. My taste is objectively bad and I actually like socks with sandals. I'm also not part of any clique that I am aware. But I do think I have a keen sense of authenticity.

    The Layers Conference looks like one of three conferences I ...

  10. Nerds on Draft With iOS Automation and Saison Dupont [Link]

    April 30, 2015 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    Nearly an hour and half about iOS Automation and one of the best Saisons around? What's not to like about the latest Nerds on Draft? iOS 8.3 has really improved the toolchain for many people, but the quality of the apps are still what keeps me enthralled with ...
