OS X 10.10 Yosemite: The Ars Technica Review.

Voluminous and detailed, as per usual.  I agree with Ars here: “The standard rules apply. Don’t upgrade until all the applications you care about are compatible. Make sure you have good backups. Point-zero releases are always a little more risky.”

Haeck: Dropbox Database Sync for Local Testing.

I wonder. I tried using Dropbox with Subversion (before Git really took off), and DB totally borked the SV repositories. There was no way back but to start from scratch.

Updated to 10.9.5 (plus security updates) last night.

Startup seems a bit pokier than usual ... but it may just be oversensitivity on my part. Sometimes these things need to ‘burn in’ over a few days to optimize. Just thought I’d mention the circumstance.

ArtDaily: Metropolitan Museum launches flagship app for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

This free digital resource is the easiest way to see what’s happening at the Met every day, wherever you are. The Met app is available on iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad, and can be downloaded free from the App Store.” Hell yeah ... instadownload. Mostly a wrapper for their website, but still worth it (free).

Evernote, and tags.

I think the most useful tag I have is “Best Practices”.  When I find coding recommendations, version control tips, etc. etc., it gets the Best Practices tag.  So useful, in retrospect. I wouldn’t mind having star ratings and color coding in addition (like Lightroom). Never can have too many classification UI thingamaboppers.

Alas, Apple.

I’ve shut down my Photostream and iCloud sync for photos, emptied everything off for the moment. Whether or not it’s “necessary”, better safe than sorry. And no, I have no naked selfies in my streams.

Twibble.io - A Better RSS feed to Twitter Service.

Hmmm. IFTTT has been rock-solid for me (every fifteen minutes, whatever is new on the blog gets sent to Twitter). This still may be worth a look, for scheduling abilities alone. If anyone decides to use it, a quick overview in the comments would be appreciated.
