Around the Web for July 4th through August 20th

Around the Web for July 4th through August 20th

These are my Around the Web links for July 4th through August 20th:

  • Let.ter – Just picked up the Let.ter app after a this reminder from @MacSparky — I had previously read about it, but was pleased to see it released.

    Let.ter is a minimalist email sending (only) app for OSX that is built on Markdown.

    Loving it

  • Keanu Reeves John Rain Television Series – I enjoy Barry Eisler's series of thrillers based on the character John Rain, and look forward to a potential TV series with Keanue Reeves in the lead role
  • Little Snitch to Keep LTE Costs Down – A worthwhile reason for looking into the use of Little Snitch
  • A Candid Look at Unread’s First Year – The upfront pricing model is a scary proposition for devs, especially if a 'successful' app like Unread only generates a moderate income in its first year. Where is the incentive to keep developing. This is a concern not just for devs but also for users who won't get updated apps if the money isn't there for the devs.
  • App Rot – A compelling take on the viability of the App Store model to sustain development, especially given the up front pricing model. Worth a read.
  • Trey Ratcliff & his GoPro Quadcopter – DigiDIRECT TV Ep 078 – Blunty of DigiDirect TV presents a video of Trey Ratcliff showing off his Phantom Quadrocopter at the recent Game of Thrones photo walk I attended in Sydney. Good fun.
