In this episode, I discuss Manhattan cocktail recipes, my recent experiences with the Mimo app designed for learning to code, a recently-created-and-soon-to-be-revealed WitGlass Playlist, Evernote’s uselessness, Serena Williams, and Brett Kavanaugh. It’s a doozy.Read More

It’s been only two weeks since the last episode, so I’m warming back up. Today I talk about two—yes, two—small lot coffees from Trader Joe’s, and I delve into more about why I despise Evernote. My complaints about Evernote may seem small, but I believe that in reality, they affect the entire service experience. I provide a brief teaser about how to fix America’s dismal education system. And I offer an exciting announcement for our family.Read More

iCloud and Siri are the heart of Apple’s future. In this episode, I discuss Apple’s upcoming event, and I focus on the tie that binds it all together: Artificial Intelligence (and Machine Learning).

Apps and Services
The apps and services listed here are the ones that I actually use in developing and maintaining the website and podcast. If you see it listed here, I love it. I don’t keep using any app or service I don’t love. Every app and every service has limitations—some more annoying or frustrating than others. But if it’s on this list, you can be sure that on the whole, I love it.
