AustinMann: Yosemite + iOS 8.1 — What Photographers Need to Know.
‘Twas only a matter of time. There were enough complains about the new use of Helvetica.
Ask DN: What is your pile of OSX Yosemite gripes so far?
Entertaining already, and it’s early yet.
Adobe Blogs: Photoshop & Mac OSX 10.10 (Yosemite).
To date, no issues reported. Good to know.
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.”
Helftone: Mac App Store - The Subtle Exodus.
Apple Insider: IDG cancels Macworld/iWorld 2015 conference, says show ‘going on hiatus’.
Wowzer. End of an era, indeed.
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.
Panic: Prompt 2 SSH client for iOS.
Server issue. Be with you shortly.
Clients come first ...
Macworld: Shell ‘Shellshock’ flaw opens OS X, Linux, more to attack, called ‘bigger than Heartbleed
“Akamai security researcher Stephane Chazelas has discovered a devastating flaw in the Unix Bash shell, leaving Linux machines, OS X machines, routers, older IoT devices, and more vulnerable to attack. ”
The Gadget Flow: Turn Your Apple Device Into A Virtual Reality Machine With AirVR.
The second photo down. We all knew this is where we were going to end up ... [laughing] ...
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.
Metafilter: “remove line breaks? where have you been all my life!”
Watch Odile hit Arizona and NM on the National Weather Services’ advanced weather data display.
Here. Took a minute or two to boot up on my browser.
Show Focus Points Plugin for Lightroom.
jwz: How to delete the “Move to Dropbox” context menu item.
WordPress Version 4.0 released.
CTRL+ClickCast: Perch CMS with Drew McLellan.
I like Perch very much. Not for my blogging uses, but for limited client sites. Haven’t had time to listen yet, but I will.
Designer News: What do you think about Semplice, the new WordPress based portfolio CMS?
Worthy not for the actual subject of the post, but for the various takedowns of WordPress.
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.
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.
