- Revolutionising prices and names
Everything Apple introduced at the 22 October event is great news. Here I only want to get a couple of minor peeves out of my system.
- The C doesn’t stand for Cheap, but it should stand for Consumer
It’s true, Apple never promised a low-cost iPhone, but I still think something feels wrong with the pricing of the new iPhone 5C.
- My moderate scepticism about the Post-PC era
Computer sales may be in decline, but I’m not so sure the personal computer is withering as fast as some think.
- In-app purchases: a matter of perception
Here’s why I typically don’t like In-app purchases, especially with games.
- The little iWork ’13 mystery solved
Having received iWork ’09 in bundle with my then-new MacBook Pro back in 2009, I wasn’t sure of my eligibility for a free iWork ’13 update. The Mac App Store app suggested I wasn’t. It was a little bug, instead.
- Mavericks’ Multiple Displays feature and MarsEdit’s wandering windows
There’s a strange issue I’ve noticed with MarsEdit and OS X Mavericks’ multiple-display management: windows don’t stay put.
- Old iOS devices and the newfound backward compatibility
That old iPhone 3G or second-generation iPod touch can still be useful, after all.

- An update on the Minigrooves project
Lessons I’ve learnt so far, some passing observations, and plans for the future.
- Jason Brennan: Who Wants a Stylus?
Great article by Jason Brennan, reflecting on how overlooked the stylus is as interaction tool and input device, with insightful contributions from various developers.
- “Are operations like Flipboard scams against publishers?”
Talking Points Memo has decided to pull its contents from aggregators like Flipboard, but I don’t understand why point the finger at Flipboard in particular.
In a sense, feedback is a bit like a currency in today’s online world. And just like currency, its value changes according to where you go.
- There is nothing wrong with the page
In which I share a couple of observations after reading Tail Wagging, a great piece by Matt Gemmell.
- Il nuovo ordine dei nerd
Questa ‘blogosfera tecnologica’, così dolce, così perversa.
- Casual Podcast #3 — Addenda
Recentemente sono stato ospite della terza puntata di Casual Podcast. Ecco alcune note sparse in aggiunta alla bella chiacchierata con Travaini e Petrucci.
