Macworld/iWorld 2014 is coming up quickly, and this year will be pretty busy for me. Along with my usual event coverage, product hunting, and interviews for The Mac Observer, I’m speaking twice and have a couple live podcast events, too. Did I mention I’ll be busy? And I have a discount for you, too.
I finally had the chance to see The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug the other day, and when Bilbo found himself inside the Dwaft kingdom in the Lonely Mountain staring at the dragon Smaug and his horde of gold, all I could think was, “My god. If all that gold is released back into the economy the inflation will be catastrophic.” So that’s a big change from when I was a kid reading The Hobbit and thinking, “Just put the damn ring on, Bilbo!”
I use Adobe apps every day. Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign. They all get updates regularly, and Adobe has done an amazing job of making that user experience as absolutely horrible as it can. So bad, in fact, that I have to question whether or not the company even uses its own products.
So I’m chatting with someone the other day and they said, “I went to seminary, but left after a year because the sex was so bad.”
A couple years ago I gave up on store bought bread and started making my own because I wanted something I liked and didn’t cost a small fortune. I found a recipe that worked for me and over time I refined it until I had something that was just about perfect. Of course, I can’t leave well enough alone, so I tried an experiment: Bacon bread. Oh, yes.
