Confusing email from @instapaper about something called Instapaper Premium. Not sure if I need it, what it is, or what I get if I sign up.
I just checked out a Kindle book through my local public library (handed off to Amazon’s site for delivery). Wow, was that easy – nice work!
Some good technical reasons beyond the user benefits in iOS 8.
Current status: copying ~20,000 photos (dating back to 1999) to my new iPhone.
I’d love a good iOS photo metadata search app.
Who is going to do the evaluation and big feature matrix for iOS keyboards?

Couldn’t agree more. Not every app needs a browser, etc.
After 10 years of living here I’m finally able to get cable internet access to the house (non-Comcast too!). Installation on Monday!
I’ve been somewhat excited about smartwatches this year. I picked up a Pebble which I liked; but the function provided fails to outweigh its form. I followed the Android Wear announcements and nothing seemed compelling. Too big, too little battery life, too many features I don’t care about conspiring to result in a price tag…
Best/reasonable in-ear headphones with mic (primarily for actually making phone calls)?
I’m looking forward to seeing my new phone and the wearable at today’s Apple event. The invite includes the tagline: Wish we could say more I’ve seen speculation that this refers to Siri, which could definitely make sense in the context of a wearable and what we’ve seen from Android. However, I’m going to guess…
OH: I never put all my eggs in one basket. That’s why they call me “Two-basket Johnson”.
I’m participating in a live conversation with some stellar folks at http://wpthinktank.com
I’m not a fan of Jetpack in general, but this is a tremendous win for the WordPress community if brute force protection is added to it as a feature.
Couldn’t renew my annual archiving subscription to Pinboard fast enough.
I pitched nearly the same idea to some friends a few months ago, but with a focus on storytelling and accomplishments rather than just having links. I think something like this has the potential to be much more compelling and useful than a traditional resume.
