Michael Tsai - Blog - Use and Misuse of NSUserDefaults
Michael Tsai:

> I used to use `-registerDefaults:` more, but now I mostly use a category method like:
> `- (id)mjtObjectForKey:(NSString *)key defaultValue:(id)defaultValue;`
> that returns `defaultValue` if `NSUserDefaults` returns `nil`. This is more convenient (one line of code) and makes it impossible to look up a key that has not been registered.

Robert Peake:

> So if you’ve been feeling a little panicky after clarifying and organising your inputs into a nice big list of all your next actions, repeat after me: it’s not a to-do list; it’s just a menu.

Designing at 1x — Design + Sketch App — Medium
> So where do I start?
> Before doing anything, I make sure everyone has “font anti-aliasing” turned off (un-checked) in their Sketch preferences. Otherwise, type looks terrible. I won’t get into why, but trust me. It does.

> Our canvas sizes are as follows:
> Desktop: 1440 x 900
> Web: 1440 x 900
> iOS iPhone 6: 375 x 667
> Android Nexus 5: 360 x 640 (mdpi)

Goodbye to the ghosts of emails past
> More than likely what you really want to do is remove the many oddball email addresses collected by the Mail app. For my money the easiest way to figure out which addresses to get rid of is to sort the list by Last Used date and delete from the top down:
> 1. Open the Previous Recipients window. (Window > Previous Recipients)
> 2. Click the Last Used column header until the oldest date appears at the top.
> 3. Click the first address appearing in the list.
> 4. Scroll to the last date you want to delete address for and shift-click that contact.
> 5. Click the Remove From List button.
