I can say that with confidence because I read John Gruber’s response. Although, to give me some credit, when you get a sub heading to an article as sensational as “Apple’s phone would have snuffed out the Android a year ago, but now Google’s device has become an unstoppable juggernaut.“, you have to wonder who paid for this propaganda acid trip.
Trademarks have been granted for less. Any time I say or hear App Store, even when referencing another company, I think of Apple. Ok, so I am an Apple user and have Apple on my mind, but Apple sort of coined the phrase. Think it would be safe to say that the phrase App Store is commonly linked with Apple.
I am so very tempted with the MacBook Air, I think it will be a while before I get one but it does help reading detailed reviews like this one from Matt. He also supports it with an abundance of photos showing various set-ups and configurations etc.
I have been leaning towards the 11″ also, but felt the screen maybe a bit limiting for more detailed work, apparently not according to Matt. This review should answer a number of questions if you can’t decided between the various models.
Reeder has made reading and managing RSS feeds a joy. The iPhone app started it off, then the iPad version and now we have a Beta version for the Mac.
If you like your RSS feeds, you need to check out the Beta version for your Mac Desktop. I have slowly made the switch from checking RSS feeds on mobile devices to the desktop, as Reeder makes it so easy and handy to use/read/share etc.
After previously blogging about Notetask, Kim from Coding Robots generously gave me 10 licences for MarkdownNote for iPad to giveway, neat promotion. It sells for £2.39 in the App Store.
“MarkdownNote makes it really easy to create notes using John Gruber’s popular Markdown markup language in your iPad.
Using live preview feature, you can preview your Markdown markup syntax to HTML on writing. MarkdownNote allows you to create and organize your notes in folders with Dropbox.com.”
How to snag a licence.
Quite simple. Please leave a comment below, with your Twitter ID. A retweet of this post would be appreciated as well, please add #markdownote at the end of the tweet. For Example ‘MarkdownNote for iPad – 10 Licences to Giveaway http://goo.gl/fb/clfdd #markdownnote’
That’s it. I will pick 10 names from the comments at random towards end of this week,
Markdownnote is not for everyone, so please only enter if you feel you would make use of this app. Thanks.
When I first read this quote I just thought it was some joke directed at the hilarious frequency of Auto Correct fails on iPhones. In actual fact, The Cupertino Effect predates the iPhone and is an interesting coincidence. Interesting.
