How to Capture Almost Anything into a Day One Entry »

How to Capture Almost Anything into a Day One Entry

Day One is great for creating a record of moments that you want to remember, but it only works if you put things into it.

(Daring Fireball) Jony Ive is Leaving Apple »

As a surprise to everyone who follows Apple news, it was announced that Jony Ive will be leaving Apple later this year.

I don’t worry that Apple is in trouble because Jony Ive is leaving; I worry that Apple is in trouble because he’s not being replaced.

While this does create a vacuum with plenty of change in its wake, it’s also exciting to see what comes out of post-Ive Apple in the coming years.
