Daring Fireball linked and commented on a couple Microsoft pieces recently, and while I largely agree with them I feel a bit of dog-piling going on. Awkwardly and surprisingly, I find myself wanting to defend Microsoft. This won’t go over well. It’s likely that this recent bout of comparisons was spawned by the news that Apple’s […]
The new iPhone SDK comes with an iPhone simulator named Aspen Simulator, which is a full iPhone emulator and includes a few built in Apps including the iPhone Safari (Mobile Safari, Safari Touch?). Using this simulator is a sweet way to test how webpages look on an iPhone without using a scrunched up Safari window […]
The Preview application in OS X never rouses a lot of fanfare as it’s functionality is pretty basic, but it’s one of my favorite programs. As a PDF viewer, it’s thousands of time faster than Adobe Reader and that alone makes it priceless. But the icon has always been sorta creepy. In most aspects it […]

Most of the nerds I hang around with are obsessed with computers but can’t code at all past a webpage. Yesterday I found a free PDF at CocoaLab about programing for OS X that doesn’t assume you already know how to program. They’ve also started up a Wiki on the topic.
It’s hard to beat John Gruber’s opening clause here: I’ve been up to my ears in jackassery lately, -> but it’s nice to see someone in the media effectively acting like a watchdog these days. It’s not just Gruber, either. Lately there seems to be a lot of independent but popular writers in the Mac […]
