    October 13, 2014 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    Who's not a fan of animated GIFs? But it's a pain to collect, organize and get easy access to a URL when you need a cheeky reply to something benign on the Internet.

    I've been a very happy customer of both CloudApp and Droplr in the past ...

  4. Marko Editor for Markdown and Critic Markup [Link]

    October 11, 2014 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    Marko is a barebones Markdown enhanced editor for Mac, Windows and Linux. It fully supports CriticMarkup syntax for things like highlights, comments and corrections.

    Shopping Bookmark

    In case it's not obvious, I think Pinboard is just great. I use it for anything that has a URL I want to remember. But it also means I have about 15,000 bookmarks. That's where tagging comes in handy. I use several types of notation for my ...

  8. iPhone 6 vs. 6 Plus

    When I was eleven, I had a "beach cruiser." It was a steel and chrome behemoth of a bicycle. It was two times too big for me and I'm pretty sure it weighed more than my mom's Datsun. But, I road that behemoth five miles every day to ...

    The 1.3 update brings several welcome enhancements and support for the new iPhones. My favorite new feature is ...
