Sonos Play:1 review – gdgt
Misschien wel, maar 't is toch wel nog duur. Als het nu pakweg 100 euro zou zijn, zou ik er twee kopen. Nu: geen één. "At just $199, the Play:1 is the cheapest way to jump into the Sonos wireless music system, or just a good addition to your existing collection of Sonos speakers."

Information Architecture: Beyond Web Sites, Apps, and Screens :: UXmatters
Het blijft moeilijk: hoe maak je iets dat voor het overgrote deel aanvoelen is, respectabel genoeg voor de buitenwereld? — "Can a craft-like profession of information architecture that lacks internal theory keep up with the growing complexities of ubiquitous ecosystems that comprise both digital and physical objects?

Pages 5.0 for Mac review: Apple writes a new chapter for its word processing app | Macworld
Ahem. "The new Pages is, without question, only related in name to its predecessor. The app’s list of missing features is significant: It has limited page-layout capabilities, no linked text boxes, you can’t customize the toolbar, it has almost no AppleScript support, no style drawer, and lacks file-level compatibility with Pages ‘09. Honestly, the list of what’s missing could go on and on."

Things Come Apart, 50 Disassembled Objects in 21,959 Individual Parts by Todd McLellan
I’ll never forget the excitement I felt as a child when first disassembling a telephone on our back porch using an old screwdriver and a pair of pliers. It was like making a discovery akin to unearthing a dinosaur. The sudden knowledge that the speaker part was magnetic and contained a mile of thin copper wiring was practically miraculous.

Ik zit met een virus, denk ik.

Keel = schuurpapier. Neus = afwisselend in brand en overstroomd. Hoofd = pijn.


They’re on to me!

Soms zit er nog wel eens grappige tussen:

‘t Is uiteraard een poging om een Sober binnen te krijgen, en het bestaat al een hele tijd, maar toch. Got a smile on my face.
