1. Maudite and Ratings [Link]

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

    On this week's Nerds on Draft podcast, Jeff and I talk much less about TapCellar while we drink Maudite from Unibroue. We mostly talk about the variety in rating systems and how we are programmed to think about scores. We also admit how hard it is to rate apps ...

  2. iThoughts and Marked [Link]

    November 10, 2014 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    Brett wins for so many reasons, least of which is the anthropomorphizing of software and their mutual affection.

    This video excites me way more than it should. My iThoughts icon has three thumbs up, because if I'm going to imagine my application with arms, it damn well will have ...

  3. On iPhone Size and Typing [Link]

    November 10, 2014 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    Eddie Smith and Yuvi echo my sentiments on phone size. I really enjoyed typing on the 6 Plus but I much prefer the 6 for everyday use. At home on the couch, I still long for the 6 Plus.

  4. Synology DS Video for iOS

    November 07, 2014 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    Continuing my celebration of a $1000 device that holds hard drives, here's a little something about the DS Video app for iOS.

    I mostly use Plex for streaming video to things like my iPhone and Roku, but the DS Video app is an alternative that's actually a pretty ...

  5. Synology File Management for iOS

    November 07, 2014 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    My love affair with my Synology continues to get more serious every week. It's a great NAS but I also really like the iOS apps.1 I figured it might be a nice to highlight what's so nice about them, starting with DS File and DS Cloud.

    DS ...

  6. Home Screen Mentality

    November 05, 2014 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    What's in a home screen? From what I can tell, the first screen of an iPhone often represents the owner's priorities better than they can describe.

    The first screen of my iPhone doesn't change very often. Occasionally I'll try out a new app or two but ...

  7. Announcing TapCellar for iOS

    November 03, 2014 by Gabe | [mmd] |


    If you follow me on Twitter or Pinboard you may know that I'm a pretty big craft beer nerd. I have a rather large cellar of rare and varied beer and I love checking out what's evolving in the market. I found a kindred spirit in Jeff Hunsberger ...

  8. Coda 2.5 Available Now

    October 30, 2014 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    Coda is the one of a kind development app for the Mac. I've used it since version 1.0 but the latest update to 2.5 brings back some of the excitement of that first release.

    Coda 2.5 for the Mac greatly improves the application interface but one ...

    Talking to Dr. Drang is always a treat. In the latest episode of Technical Difficulties, the good doctor walks down memory lane and shares how he got started with computers. He shared some terrific stuff and the show notes are full of great images he provided.

    October 28, 2014 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    This is the first entry in a new interview series on Macdrifter. A couple of years ago I interviewed some of my favorite indie bloggers to find out how they get down to business and write great stuff online.

    This new series is a bit more personal and something I ...
