First ever veg box from Riverford arrived.

OopsieFocus Script by Shawn Blanc ›

This happens to me on a semi-regular basis: I hit the hotkey to bring up the OmniFocus Quick Entry Pane but nothing happens.

I do this and it drives me nuts. Thankfully Shawn has a fix in the form of OopsieFocus. I just installed this handy little applescript triggered by the ever useful Alfred.

Can’t wait for this in the desktop app.

iA Writer: On Prices and Features ›

Very interesting article about the way Information Architects settled on the price for iA Writer on the Mac, the thinking behind it and the value they place on the product they have created. In fact its more than just an article about pricing, it’s an article about value. The value you place on your work and how you communicate to the people buying it, be it a service or product is very important, understanding that is the first step in getting your valuation right.

Apple’s iTunes in iCloud ‘won’t launch in the UK this year’ by the Telegraph ›

Just what I feared, the UK once again dragging feet and scared of the Technology. The one thing I don’t understand is this quote:

Mark Mulligan, vice president and research director at Forrester Research, said: “Apple’s cloud music service will not launch in the UK until at least quarter one of 2012. These types of negotiations take a long time… For one thing the UK arms of all the major record labels are biding their time and waiting to see how the service affects download sales in the US before they sign up to anything.”

I’ll be more likely to buy from iTunes for ease of access than I ever have been, but of course, the record labels believe everyone is a thief and will always download illegally if it means paying $25 a year to get those files included in the available anywhere access.

After seeing First Class last week couldn’t resist this for only £8

Reeder for Mac ›

Reeder for Mac is now out of beta. I’ve been using this app since it went into public beta and really love the trackpad gestures it’s got built in. I use it on my iPad as well, and I can really see how iOS has influenced the thinking of the developer. Go check it out on the App Store.

Found this while planning the session for tomorrow nights bible study for the youth. It was given to me on my confirmation. I think my Mum made it.

The Anatomy of a Notification ›

Notifications are the smallest bit of disposable, human-readable information that conveys something you care about. Their real-time nature gives notifications an immediate sense of importance. Well, my ass is vibrating, so it must be important.

Great read about what a notification is and why they need fixing on iOS.

Asperger East Anglia Rebrand on Identity Designed ›

I love the clarity, simplicity and honesty of this rebranding for Autism East Anglia. So often we try to be too clever in considering a brand but often times being straight and honest about something is the only way to go. In this case it’s not just an honesty about the charity or the condition, but the people affected by the condition.
