How Apple Saved My Life ›

If you do only one thing on the inter­net today, please watch this video by James Rath. In a world where so often tech­nol­o­gy can make us feel dis­con­nect­ed and absent from those around us, it’s impor­tant to see things from the oth­er end some­thing. In the case of James Rath it’s incred­i­ble to see how much tech­nol­o­gy has influ­enced his life in such a pos­i­tive way.

Working on the iPad, one year on

An exten­sive par­ti­cle from Vitic­ci of Mac­Sto­ries about work­ing on the iPad. I can speak from expe­ri­ence as well. I upgrad­ed my iPad 2 to an iPad Air 2 in Novem­ber last year and its becom­ing my go to device for any com­put­ing oth­er than the design work I need to use my Mac for.

The Smart Bathroom Mirror ›

I love the idea behind this bath­room mir­ror, some­thing that I could imag­ine in my home one day.
The inter­net of things is talked about a lot, but more often than not seems gim­micky in exe­cu­tion. The idea of ket­tles with WiFi built in and fridges with touch screens just don’t real­ly make much sense to me, but some­thing sub­tle that inte­grates qui­et­ly into its sur­round­ings and has real util­i­ty does.

Going all in with e‑books ›

Invest­ing com­ments from Tim Chal­lies in a recent blog post about Going All-in With Ebooks. It’s some­thing I’ve thought about many times, and in fact have com­mit­ted to on more than one occa­sion, but always end up com­ing back to paper books. Worth a read if you’re con­sid­er­ing a sim­i­lar move.

Everyone in Buenos Aires Is Communicating by Voice Memo Now ›

Real­ly inter­est­ing to hear how dif­fer­ent cul­tures use mes­sag­ing tech­nolo­gies. The UK is much like how the author of this piece speaks about their friends in the US and noth­ing like Argenti­na but voice mes­sages have always intrigued me. I’ve had the abil­i­ty to use them on my iPhone for a while but nev­er do, maybe it’s time to start. Sev­er­al of my best friends live away from me, we chat on the phone from time to time, but mes­sage more often. Maybe this would bridge the gap.

The Week in Links

Writ­ing, future uses of new tech­nol­o­gy, design process­es, an inter­view with a design leg­end and Apple Watch. The range of sub­jects cov­ered in this weeks edi­tion of The Week in Links, has a bit more vari­ety in it than pre­vi­ous weeks. Sit back and enjoy.

The Week In Links

This week’s edi­tion high­lights just four things I think are worth look­ing at. The first is some­thing I’ve nev­er real­ly thought about, but on reflec­tion and with my inter­est in typog­ra­phy, should’ve been high up on the list. Fol­low­ing that is a valu­able resource for any­one with an inter­est in in typog­ra­phy, an insight­ful look into a cycle for gen­er­at­ing mean­ing­ful con­tent before end­ing with an imag­i­na­tive glimpse into what impact the Apple Watch could have on peo­ple’s lives. Enjoy your Sun­day evening reading.
