Keith Cirkel: Why we should stop using Grunt & Gulp.

You could find that for certain tasks you need to use Grunt, and for others you need to use Gulp or Brunch, so enter the ridiculous world of using build tools to manage your build tools, with such great hits as grunt-brunch and gulp-grunt ...” House-of-cards effect. Yep.

Transmit iOS 1.1.1 is out, fixing a few bugs in our surprisingly powerful file management app for your iPhone or iPad. Also, at Apple’s request, we had to remove the ability to “Send” files to other services, including iCloud Drive.” Read the entire thing to understand the problem. Apple? Ball’s in your court.

The Verge: Adobe’s got Photoshop running in Chrome.

Yeah, but don’t get all excited: “The application is downloaded via the Chrome Web Store, and when you open it up you’re actually connecting to a server which is running the desktop version of Photoshop CC 2014. The UI of the desktop version is captured as a video and sent to your browser, where javascript relays your actions back to the server, completing the interactive loop.” Better have a fast hookup; delays in UI get up my nose.

The Register: That dreaded syncing feeling: Will Microsoft EVER fix OneDrive?

Sync failures are perhaps the biggest frustration for Office 365 users and those who support them, and when it happens the usual advice is to delete and resync everything, with possible loss of recently changed files.” Beware.

Indianapolis Business Journal: The tragedy of electronic medical records.

FYI. I’ve related my experience of a year or so ago ... sitting while a physician’s attendant hunt-and-pecked information into an EHR system for 45 minutes, something I volunteered to do and could have performed in five. Afterwards, they *still* screwed up insurance/billing. 

I have a feeling this is like the current electronic accounting market. Dozens of brands of customized software, all storing info in different ways, none compatible with another. Or am I wrong?
