OS X Reviewed
Thanks to John for writing the canonical OS X reviews for so long. It sometimes took me weeks to finish them but I always learned things that helped me get more out of my tools. I look forward to hearing his thoughts on the next OS version on ATP.

Twitter and What Might Have Been
Indeed, I would argue that what makes Twitter the company valuable is not Twitter the app or 140 characters or @names or anything else having to do with the product: rather, it’s the interest graph that is nearly priceless.

Seven Plus or Minus Three
I didn't implement this at Crowd Favorite and, retrospectively, I wish I had. Not having to worry about this at all anymore is a definite plus to being back on my own.

Microsoft's new foldable keyboard is designed for any mobile device
Everything [old](http://www.amazon.com/Targus-Stowaway-Portable-Keyboard-Handspring/dp/B00004TL5Q) is new again. I had one of these for my Palm Vx and actually used it to take notes in meetings. That was [15 years ago](http://alexking.org/tech/mobile).

My Yesterbox Gmail Setup
I really like this approach to email. Thankfully I don't have to deal with the volume of email I used to, but if it ever approaches that level again I'm going to give this a shot. It is easy to replicate in Mail.app with a smart folder and a second window.

Introducing BusyContacts 1.0
I [linked to this](https://alexking.org/blog/2014/11/14/getting-started-with-busycontacts) back in November when it was in beta and I've been using it since then very happily. Check it out - unlike other contact managers I've tried in the past it actually delivers on what is promises.

Flipboard comes to the web, and it’s beautiful
For now, Flipboard for the web won’t carry ads, though that’s the eventual plan. In the meantime, the company is hoping that the web will help it draw millions of more users. Hosting links to stories on Flipboard.com will help draw in readers through search results, McCue says. And everything on Flipboard can be shared on social networks. "We think there’s a whole bunch of people there that we haven’t really tapped into," he says. The desktop web’s best days may be behind it, but Flipboard is betting there’s a big future in it.

So they are going to be duplicating my content and competing for my traffic and selling ads against it? What?

Retro Running Diary: Super Bowl XLIX «
Seeing that framegrab of how open Lockette is just before Wilson released the ball... I still don't like the play call but I see it more as a great play by Butler more than a mistake by Wilson.
