From MacSurfer and an article from Roughly Drafted.

A great read on some conclusions not normally mentioned anywhere.

"Sometimes the best assistant is somebody who can do exactly what you specify, rather than trying to guess at what you might want.

"One of Siri's primary features is that much of the metadata it can make available to users is local to their devices and never leaves."


Making the whole widget still pays dividends. Hypertext > AppleScript > Automator > Siri

What they all have in common is adapting local and online resources in ways designed to solve "regular" problems, rather than invent problems needing solutions.

I liked what bit of it I read, but the white text on black was tough.

I'll try again after Taps.




When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men
except by believing all possible evil
of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

Perfection is the enemy of progress. -Winston Churchill

-An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

Mister, that's a ten-gallon hat on a twenty-gallon head.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.
