• I don't know if you're supposed to put an entire micropost into a blockquote or not, but I'm doing it anyway.

    My goal, as a writer, is to always try to make the best thing I've published the last thing I've published. I feel today's letter meets that goal:

    He's not wrong.1 Go sign up.

    1. And that's saying a lot, because Patrick is one of my favorite writers.

  • 3D Touch

    My only problem with 3D Touch is when I press firmly onto the screen of my iPads1 and nothing happens.

    1. Yes, I still use two iPads. Like a gentleman. 


  • Sugar

    I not really surprised that the sugar industry did this. I'm more surprised that we still use faulty / influenced research data from 1967.

    How the Sugar Industry Shifted Blame to Fat - The New York Times

    The documents show that a trade group called the Sugar Research Foundation, known today as the Sugar Association, paid three Harvard scientists the equivalent of about $50,000 in today's dollars to publish a 1967 review of research on sugar, fat and heart disease. The studies used in the review were handpicked by the sugar group, and the article, which was published in the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine, minimized the link between sugar and heart health and cast aspersions on the role of saturated fat.


  • My new phone autocorrects "pot" to "Potatowire" - and that's exactly how it should be.

  • This is fucking shameful.

    Nearly 10,000 soldiers, many of whom served multiple combat tours, have been ordered to repay large enlistment bonuses — and slapped with interest charges, wage garnishments and tax liens if they refuse — after audits revealed widespread overpayments by the California Guard at the height of the wars last decade.

    If you make a mistake and overpay soldiers, then you suck it up. Taking that money back is absolutely shameful.

  • Hour one of using a Kinesis Advantage2. At this point I feel like a four year old trying to type. With a banana.

  • Lunch today was bacon, cheese, and avocado wrapped in a low carb tortilla.

    It was delicious, and I really don't know who I am anymore.

  • Task Manager: Where I go to defer all the stuff I haven't done yet. Currently, that is 2Do. It's very good at letting me defer things quickly on iOS.

  • More on the home button

    Home button, you say? Sure; why not.

    The new iPhone virtual button is not only very nice, but it really does feel like a button. If yours doesn't, try these settings:

    taptic home button settings

    1 feels ok. 3 feels ok. 2 is the sweet spot.
