John Gruber on guns.

Two years later, nothing has changed. I say ban them all. Confiscate every single one of the goddamn things.

Without a constitutional amendment, that would be illegal.

I’ve Long noticed that many (most) of the homes I have seen in New Jersey have very few windows. Especially the larger homes. It’s as though some architect found inspiration in a box with small holes. The kind of box you use to transport small rodents home from the pet store.

I’ve see homes where the entire side of the home is paved in vinyl save for one small and forlorn…

My wife came with me. Earlier in the week, I had mentioned to her that I wanted to go into Princeton. I had an eye for the weekly photo challenge. I put it off all week but on Thursday I finally said to her, “Let’s do it tonight”.

I was disappointed. There was much less traffic than I expected and the streets seemed bereft of people. I thought that the streets would be filled…

man, water, jet-ski, fail

I read this piece on the Equifax data breach by Gary Leff. I was looking for the punch line.

We’re stuck dealing with the consequences, and while the average consumer maybe should get a credit freeze I’m not going to, it’s a pain and slows down the credit origination process and not all issuers will follow up manually to get permission to access your credit. At this point I’m just going to…

Stones, Sourland Mountain Preserve

[exif id=”31836″]

What is a stone?

It’s a unit of measure. The stone or stone weight is an English and imperial unit of mass now equal to 14 pounds (6.35029318 kg). My body weight (Earth) is approximately 11.4 stone.

Stone also refers to a solid aggregate of one or more minerals or mineraloids. Rocks are stones.

It may also refer — in the plural — to the assemblage of English musicians into a…

Convenient Biometric Authentication

XKCD, Passwords

Consider this in the context of convenient biometric authenticaion like TouchID and FaceID.

Imagine you travelled to the US with a locked briefcase that contained every text message, email, and private message you’d ever sent to a loved one. It also included every web search you’d ever conducted, and?—?through your bank account and PayPal records?—?every purchase you’d ever made and every…

Do Not Disturb While Driving

Do Not Disturb While Driving

iOS, Maps

Do Not Disturb While Driving is my most anticipated feature in iOS 11.

While this feature is enabled, the iPhone stops pushing most notifications. Emergency alerts, timers, and alarms can break through. You can optionally allow the phone to reply to incoming text messages with an explanation (and a way to break through if it’s really important).

Incoming calls are allowed to come through, but…

I pulled one from the Lightroom catalog. I didn’t encounrter any queues of people waiting. Or animals waiting. This is as waiting as it gets.


Each Wednesday, The Daily Prompt Photo Challenge provides a theme for creative inspiration. Participants take photographs based on their interpretation of the theme, and post them on their blog anytime before the following Wednesday. Elem…

Dark, Cars, Faculty Road, Princeton

[exif id=”31701″]

My initial thought after Frank posted this week’s photo challenge and seeing his photo was, “go grab some shots of the Shea Rowing Center.” The centre is lit at night and I thought I would get some good pictures of the lights of the centre illuminating the darkness along Faculty Road.

My plan was to leave work and head to Troon Brewing, have dinner next door at Brick Farm Tavern

What have we done?

“A lot of the designers and coders who were in their 20s when we were creating these things didn’t have kids. Now they have kids,” he says. “And they see what’s going on, and they say, ‘Wait a second.’ And they start to rethink their design decisions.” Nest founder and Apple designer Tony Fadell

Pro Versus Amateur

Park, Princeton, Leaves

Apple and Sony both announced new technology products on the same day last week.

Both companies are high tech powerhouses. Both are throwing lots of new core technology into the electronic guts of their products.

One plays like a pro. The other seems like an awkward teen trying to play like a pro.

This is a marketing difference, a message difference, an integration difference, a user…

Can we really change the world..

We can pick something up and move it somewhere else. We can share a thought or idea with others. It is within the ability of every single one of us to say, write, or do something that changes the parameters of the world right now — or at least a small corner of it. However, I get the sense that many of us are hung up on the issue of scale. We are…
