1. Entertainment on the Go [Link]

    July 06, 2015 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    We recorded last week's Nerds on Draft a bit early which means pre- Apple Music launch. For me, very little has changed but if you are interested in some alternative ways of accessing music, books, videos and games while you travel this summer, Episode 40 might a good place ...

  2. Minecraft Story Mode Trailer [Link]

    July 04, 2015 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    Wow. This looks like a born winner. Telltale and Mojang team up to create an episodic Minecraft adventure game. I thought it was illegal to print money.

    The trailer is embedded below. Great choices for voice acting too.

  3. Arq for Mac Now Supports Amazon Cloud [Link]

    July 04, 2015 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    I mentioned in a recent post about Synology that once Arq for Mac supported Amazon Cloud, it would be a great backup alternative. Well, as of this week Arq supports Amazon Cloud.

    For $60 a year, Amazon Cloud is a great deal for unlimited storage and bandwidth. Are is great ...

    Jason Verly writes about how he converts an iThoughts map into a nicely printed outline.

    The goal is to get a visual mind map into a orderly text form that can be shared with others. iThoughtsX is what I use to create and capture my thoughts and ideas. We'll ...

  5. iBooks and Field Guides on the Phone [Link]

    July 02, 2015 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    My iPad has a lot more dust on it than I'd like. Since getting an iPhone 6, I rarely go looking for it. So I'm really interested in the latest changes to iBooks that enable rich media on the iPhone. You probably already own at least one MacSparky ...

  6. Printed TaskPaper [Link]

    Engineers are organized. One other advantage of having everything on a sheet of paper is that it doesn't require WiFi or cell service.

  7. Conversation Parade [Link]

    June 29, 2015 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    I love this new Adenture Time podcast so dang hard. So much fun stuff and interviews with the voice cast. I like to think I'm an idiot savant with a deep knoweldge of Adventure Time. These guys blow me away.

    By way of my favorite character, @hotdogsladies

    Jess Martin writes about task management with Trello (but only tangentially references actually using Trello):

    You might think it’s working. You might even be considered effective at your work. Someone might have once called you a rock star or a ninja. You might not find out that it’s ...

    June 26, 2015 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    iThoughtsX for Mac just released a new update that adds a couple of nice features. The first is pretty big: user definable sorting.1

    You can set sort order based on several criteria and the child nodes all rearrange from top to bottom. There's simple alphabetical sorting, but there ...

  10. Ida's Dream For Monument Valley

    June 25, 2015 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    Monument Valley

    I really like Monument Valley. It's a puzzle game with great design that also somehow relaxes me. By far, my favorite levels were in their ProductRed package released earlier this year. The puzzles were harder and the ideas were fresher.

    Now you can get those same levels for free ...
