  1. Why I’m Buying a Macbook →

    Steve and I have been drooling over this machine for a month now. Mine is also on order, and I am not feeling particularly patient about it. Hurry up and get here!

    UPDATE: Steve calls out two features that other reviews haven’t spent much time on:

    1. The power brick is absurdly tiny and light compared to Apple’s other laptop chargers. This is a huge benefit for anyone who carries a charger with them, though the 9 hours of battery life means this probably only happens for me when I’m traveling.
    2. USB C is the new kid on the block now, but it looks to have the kind of early inertia that can propel it to becoming a new standard for both Apple and non-Apple laptops sooner rather than later.
  2. Introducing Cache Buddy →

    I love that Mark has released this. This is a problem that many WordPress devs have solved individually. By releasing his toolset, I hope we’ll see it as a base for collaboration that many devs contribute to in the future.

  3. Every Exit is an Entry Somewhere →

    There aren’t many too many jobs available that allow you to influence the strategic direction and decision making process of some of the biggest and most important technology companies in the world – as well as their disruptors, that give you a pulpit to produce public research for some of the best and brightest developers on the planet.

    If you’ve ever even remotely wanted to be an analyst, here is an opportunity to jump in with the best. Bring your A game.

  4. JSONView for Firefox →

    The document is formatted, highlighted, and arrays and objects can be collapsed. Even if the JSON document contains errors, JSONView will still show the raw text.

    Yes, I still use Firefox as my development browser. I’m comfortable with my dinosaur status.

  5. My Yesterbox Gmail Setup →

    I really like this approach to email. Thankfully I don’t have to deal with the volume of email I used to, but if it ever approaches that level again I’m going to give this a shot. It is easy to replicate in with a smart folder and a second window.
