Linux 4.19-rc4 released, an apology, and a maintainership note - Linus Torvalds
As you may know, the creator of Linux is a legendary asshole. As far as I know, this is Linus's first humble recognition of that. I hope that "I need to take
a break to get help on how to behave differently" is a sincere statement backed by action.

The Best Ways to Use 3D Touch on Your iPhone
In case you missed it, I've been writing for Lifehacker as of recently (part of the reason posting has slowed down here, but I'm working to balance that back out). I thought this post on the myriad ways you can use 3D Touch on iPhones worth sharing. Now that 3D Touch looks likely to be removed, I'm taking as much advantage of it as I can. I don't care what anyone says, it is (was) a useful innovation.

The best FTP Clients for Mac Compared
BinaryNights, creator of [ForkLift](https://binarynights.com/), did a comprehensive speed test of all of the major FTP clients for Mac. Taking into account that this was performed by the developer of one of the apps, they go into solid detail about the testing procedure and parameters, and the results are presumably verifiable. And, as I would have guessed, in most cases every client except for Cyberduck performed pretty closely, but with some surprises in handling multiple-file transfers.

Font Flipper - Find Free Fonts
If you've ever trolled through Google's web fonts collection, you know how tedious it can be to pull the best font out of the large collection. Font Flipper turns it into Tinder... upload an image and add text, choose what types of fonts you want to view, and then start swiping right and left to build up a favorites list, ready to download. Nifty.
