Cheddar is now FREE
不喜歡 Todo app 的開發者 Sam Soffes 寫了這個叫 Cheddar 的 Todo app,小眾經營得不錯,不過後來賣掉了。原本的模式是免費下載但有功能限制(月費解鎖),新公司接手後,宣佈Cheddar app 跟同步功能全部免費開放。Cheddar app 支援 Mac, iPhone, iPad。

特別的是,Sam Soffes 當初把所有的 Cheddar app 原始碼放在 GitHub(iOS, Mac) 供人取用。新公司接手後,原始碼不再更新,但舊版的程式碼持續開放參觀。一個實際商品化的產品原始碼,不好好利用就太可惜了。

RaceSplitter rejected after three years for using a slider control (via Michael Tsai)
三年,歷經十三個版本後,Apple 說:貴產品其中一個設計跟我們前幾版(iOS 6)太像,很抱歉,這次不給過,回家重寫作業再來...。以下引用原文中 Apple 的「指控」:

The “slide to start the stopwatch” is similar to the “slide to unlock in iOS device”.


iTunes Match lost all my music (and then I got it all back)
1. iTunes Match 上的音樂幾乎不見了。
2. iTunes Match 上音樂都救回來了。
3. 還好有 CrashPlan

冷靜、醒腦、傾聽、沉思、慎言。提供一個模型,教你如何建立而且維持一個有效的對話。本文值得收藏而且再三閱讀、思考。

Growing up my Dad would always tell me: “If the person you’re talking to doesn’t understand you, this is actually your fault and your problem. You need to do a better job of communicating.” It sounds pretty trivial, but it’s not.

我經常犯的錯誤是:邊聽別人說話,邊做不相關的事。這是相當不好的行為,該改。

I try to do just one thing when I’m in the middle of a conversation: listen to the person I’m talking to. Instead of thinking of how I may structure an argument to disprove him or how to share a relevant personal story of my own, I try to just listen and absorb the words being said to me.
