  • iPhone 7 and VR?

    I'm not one to spend time on rumors, and rarely invest much energy in speculation, but the technical specs dug up by Softorino while hacking away on the next version of WALTR are intriguing.…

  • Do it right: Writing about Apple

    If you write technical documentation for or blog about Apple products, you've probably pondered phrasing, capitalization, etc.. If you're not familiar with it already, Apple publishes and updates a style guide that's complete and useful for any kind of Apple-related writing.

I can't express how deeply saddened I am that he's gone.…

I'd like to join many others in saying "thanks, Steve."…
