Claimed 'iPhone 6s' Display Assembly...

Chinese phone repair company GeekBar has shared a series of three photos today (via Nowhereelse.fr) showing what is claimed to be a display assembly for the upcoming "iPhone 6s".

Dot is a smartwatch that may have life-changing implications. Rather than trying to convey information through tiny text on a small screen, Dot intends to provide visually impaired wearers with notifications through Braille. Four sets of the six dots that signify characters in the Braille system raise and lower as quickly as 100 times per second to denote four characters simultaneously, though users may opt to slow the watch down to a single character per second.

Pixelmator keyboard by Editors Keys review – A no-...


Pixelmator is one of the best Photoshop alternatives available on the Mac App Store. I’ve been using it for quite some time now, but mostly just using a trackpad or mouse to manipulate layers, access tools and edit functions. There are tons of keyboard shortcuts. And if I had the time or patience to learn them all, I would have. Needless to say, I didn’t. So when I got the chance to check out EditorsKeys keyboard specifically designed for Pixelmator, I jumped at it.

Late last year, at the Çingleton 2014 conference, Adam and Tonya gave a talk entitled “Through the Lens of a Boutique Publisher.” It’s a 35-minute tour through the past, present, and future of TidBITS and Take Control, with lots of personal anecdotes and photos mixed in as they talk about what it’s like to be a publisher.

External Link: Four iOS Interface Patterns That Work...

User experience company Nielsen Norman Group has posted an article pointing out problems with four official iOS interface patterns: page control dots, form submission links at the top, the plus icon, and the move icon. The authors aren’t speaking theoretically — these design patterns fail in actual usability testing — and they both give specific examples of each criticism and offer alternative approaches. In other words, if you’ve had trouble with an app that uses these interface controls, it’s not just you. Read the full article at TidBITS, the oldest continuously published technology publication on the Internet.

Things that were awesome at PSU MacAdmins Conference...

This year many attendees of the Penn State Mac Admins Conference likened the experience to summer camp. I described it as the feeling of gluttony, and as I’m a bit of an enthusiast, I’m still recovering from intellectual overload. It felt different than previous years – personally that may be because I had to do half as much work as I usualy do, since Ben Toms joined me on stage(and yet I still interrupted and talked twice as much as him, but ¯_(ツ)_/¯). One overall feeling was of a lot of folks you’ve seen for years were at once more familiar, and new faces stepping out from the shadows of Slack to make themselves seen and heard made it quite the event. Here’s some of the other things that I got exposed to, or otherwise made an impact on me over the span of the conference:...
