Launch Center Pro: An Adoption Strategy For Those Having Trouble Adopting It

Launch Center Pro: An Adoption Strategy For Those Having Trouble Adopting It is a good read over on one setup of Launch Center Pro.

One thing I have found while using Launch Center Pro, to open an app that is not listed in the app, make a url link to using [app name]:/// (that’s three slashes). This shortcut will use the application’s icon.

Update: Ars Technica just post a good article on Launch Center Pro.

How to Make a Rape Joke

With the resent events of Tosh being called out his rape joke, this is a great read on how to make humor. The writing in this post could have been done with some censoring of itself.

But the best comics use their art to call bullshit on those terrible parts of life and make them better, not worse.

This fetishization of not censoring yourself, of being an “equal-opportunity offender,” is bizarre and bad for comedy. When did “not censoring yourself” become a good thing?… “Oh, don’t worry—I punch everyone in the face! People, baby ducks, a lion, this Easter Island statue, the ocean…” Okay, well that baby duck is dead now. And you’re a duck-murderer. It’s really easy to believe that “nothing is sacred” when the sanctity of your body and your freedom are never legitimately threatened.

Tweetbot for Mac

Tweetbot for Mac is out. It’s an open alpha, so expect it break, alot. One bug i found out already, I authorize my account twice when attempting to authorize another accont.

The Next Microsoft

The Next Microsoft. It’s kinda pretty but I don’t think much would change.

SoundWorks Collection - The Sound of Brave on Vimeo

SoundWorks Collection came out with a short video on The Sound of Brave on Vimeo. It is vague on actual examples but plenty of descriptions of those examples. The vague examples must be a result of the movie not being released yet. I expect a more complete showing of this extra to show up on a DVD.

Big Finish, makers of wonderful things such as Doctor Who audio adventures, the canceled Tomorrow People (damn you Fremantle Media Enterprise!!) and many more gems, did a podcast special about this exact topic.

Making something people love

From the levels gift giving and finding you’re nitch of people to chat with to Shit Reddit Says and the nastiness that is anonymous hatred, Reddit is without a doubt a place not to ignore. It combines the best of 4chan (the anonymity) with best of what was Digg and encourage the users to take it future making Reddit to have it is eleven spices and herbs that we all love. Make Something People Love: Lessons From a Startup Guy is an exciting book I will be reading as soon done with the current A Song of Ice and Fire book i am reading, the Nerd Ranch’s Guide to iOS Dev book and Kevin Mitnick’s new book

Apple releases a Podcasts app for iOS

Seems like the rumors were true about iOS 6 taking podcasts out of the music app. Apple just released Podcasts for iOS. A very good looking app, as you would expect, but it doesn’t take OPML files, which iTunes uses to export podcast.
I have been happy with iCatcher as my choice of podcast catching app (that will always sound awkward to me). It’s not pretty but it works smoothly with all the features I would want.

The Great Porn Experiment

Someone close to me pointed out r/NoFap on reddit a while back. This was during Lent and gave up things such as reddit. I finally remmeberd to look at it and found this interesting talk called “The Great Porn Experiment” by Gary Wilson.

Harmonica rendition of Game Of Thrones theme

The “A Song of Ice and Fire” series bug has finally bit and I stumbled upon this rendition of the GoT theme.
