    OmniGraffle is one of the most generally useful apps on my Mac and iOS devices. The Omni Group is dramatically improving the app through third party stencils available through their "Stenciltown." Version 2.0 adds options to upload and bookmark stencils. Check out the embedded video below:

  2. VMWare Fusion Might be End of Life [Link]

    January 27, 2016 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    Doesn't look good for anyone that depends on Fusion. They laid off their development team. I have to wonder if this means anything about the PC market. I'm no analyst but I do remember when everyone had to have VMWare or Parallels as a Mac owner.

    By way ...

    This is a pretty great list. From one of my favorite beers to a sausage club there's something for every oddball in your life.

    By Cord Jefferson:

    "Sometimes people are mean, and sometimes things will be hard. One of your jobs is to try and make sure that that never makes you mean and hard, too."

    Then later:

    If you’re ever interested in feeling as if you’re on the verge of losing ...

  5. Here's Why You Shouldn't Put Your Baby Photos Online [Link]

    An interesting study in privacy awareness:

    A context-aware approach to privacy is something that seems to have eluded companies like Facebook, Google, Flickr, Instagram, Snapchat and others. They promise secrecy and control, but what they really should be doing is making sure that people know what they can expect—to ...

    This is just incredible. Let's hope that $10,000 price tag works it's way down to something in reach of more people. This looks so fun and the examples are unreal.

  7. Find a Process on Your Mac

    January 23, 2016 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    Little Snitch for the Mac is both great and terrible. It's great because I know exactly what apps are doing with my network. It's terrible because there are a lot of legitimate processes making calls home that freak me out. For example, the "apsd" process started showing traffic ...

    On episode 57 of Nerds on Draft Jeff and I discussed how we get news in the absence of our beloved Zite. We also drowned our sorrows with a delicious Bitches Brew from Dogfish Head.

  9. 2Do for iOS Adds Task Emailing and Sleep

    January 19, 2016 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    This week's update to 2Do for iOS is really clever. The new task email integration is exactly what I'd want if I were in the market for a new task manager (which I'm not). Routing emails to someone else's servers to create tasks with them, 2Do ...

  10. OmniFocus GTD Intro [Link]

    This Omnigroup GTD intro is like a Cliffs Notes for Getting Things Done. While it describes GTD in the context of OmniFocus, it's actually a pretty good intro to GTD concepts. I never even noticed the link at the top of their guest post series Inside OmniFocus.
