1. The iPhone

    January 09, 2017 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    I still remember waiting in line for the first iPhone, nearly a decade ago. It was a reasonably long line but a casual effort by today's standards. I had real excitement for a new device from Apple and not just an evolution of the Rokr let down. But it ...

  2. DROP TABLE LTD [Link]

    January 06, 2017 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    From the "the future kind of sucks" files comes this update out of the UK. There's now a company named for a SQL injection attack. I'm hopeful that the global economy will survive ; DROP TABLE "COMPANIES";-- LTD's first public offering.

  3. Urban Dictionary for Slack [Link]

    January 05, 2017 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    This is definitely worth a slot on any team's slack integration page.

    Urban Dictionary Slack Bot

    There are variety of commands but I like how some are public and others are private to the user posting the command. This would pair nicely with a Snopes bot.

  4. The Download on the DNC Hack [Link]

    January 04, 2017 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    Another great summary from Brian Krebs. No matter which side you fall on politically, this stuff should concern you. The problem isn't whether there is hacking, the problem is that we can't even believe the official responses so it leaves a vacuum of information that is readily filled ...

  5. Mac Power Users 358 [Link]

    January 03, 2017 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    Katie and David were kind enough to invite me on the Mac Power Users podcast. We only talked briefly about DEVONthink. It's always so much fun talking to the hosts of a show I listen to every week.

  6. Calendar 366 for Mac

    January 02, 2017 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    I switched to Calendar 366 Plus as my menu bar calendar on Mac and it's perfect for my needs. The icon shows the date, it supports natural language event creation and understands slash notation to specify the calendar name. It even does a nice job highlighting events in the ...

  7. Annotable for iOS

    January 01, 2017 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    With the huge variety of image editors available for iOS, I find myself using Annotable more with every new update. Pixelmator and OmniGraffle are amazing pieces of software on iOS but for simple edits they are just too much work. With all of the tools unlocked (a $10 IAP) Annotable ...

  8. The Sources and Methods Podcast [Link]

    December 26, 2016 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    The Sources and Methods podcast is a good interview show with a wide variety of guests. I was lucky enough to be invited on this week’s episode. Alex and I talked about using DEVONthink, social media, and the value proposition for privacy. I think it was a fun conversation ...

  9. DEVONthink Formatted Notes

    December 19, 2016 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    Most of my information is captured as plain text. I love text files. But, sometimes an image or a bit of formatting actually does help document things more precisely. Writing notes in Markdown with image links is possible but it’s not enjoyable. This is especially true when working on ...

  10. Evernote, Humans, and Machines

    December 19, 2016 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    The recent Evernote privacy policy brought about considerable response from the nerds.

    Here’s the relevant section many are concerned with (highlighting is mine):

    The latest update to the Privacy Policy allows some Evernote employees to exercise oversight of machine learning technologies applied to account content, subject to the limits ...
