This site makes awesome emoji wallpapers programmatically. I love the default example, a mix of various fruits that look just gorgeous. Downloaded and using it!

Recommend me a book | read the first page and then decide if you want to know what the book even is!
Found via amit on micro.blog. Very interesting site! Sort of like browsing a book store and reading the first page of a random book you grab off the shelf. After you’re hooked, does it matter who the author is and what the cover looks like?

Beautiful writing. What’s the word for feeling a longing for a place you’ve never been to?

This is kinda cool. This app pulls up a random Substack post and serves it up. A lot of it is just completely random and uninteresting. There are a few gems I came across in my browsing though - some personal newsletters, some people coming into Substack and others leaving it.

I was wondering why everyone is going to Substack other than it being new and improved. But this seems to be a very logical reason for it. Nice write up!

You know, we find ourselves in a purely Orwellian world. It’s like 1984: lies are truth, war is peace. And that’s exactly how we’re supposed to operate in this country.
So, the US is Brave New World and Russia is 1984. Good to know.

If you are already familiar with Tailwind CSS, think about Windi CSS as an alternative to Tailwind, which provides faster load times, and supports all the features in Tailwind v2.0 and more.
Nice! Tailwind is already pretty awesome, and this is a cherry on top?

What a strange and beautiful thing this is. The internet sure is weird and wonderful!

Seeing this made me realize that Pokeballs are like a genie’s lamp. Wow!

This seems like an interesting extension. Could make page loads super fast! I’m tempted to try it but would love some feedback from real users to see if it helps them in any meaningful way.

Samsung might be the only company that can compete with YouTube. They should really look at expanding this TV Plus offering to include indie creators, TikTok overflow artists, etc… Even if they dedicate a channel to cat videos, it can be a hit in the idle browsing viewers of the world.

India needs to pick up this opportunity and invite everyone to build in India and export all over the world. A tightened tech trade relation with EU would be good for India.

sounds about right

If you use separate browsers for work and home on Mac, and if you want to make your life easier, you need this tool.

I’ve talked about RSSBox before. Here’s another service that converts Instagram and twitter accounts, eBay pages, and random webpages into RSS feeds.

We’ve been begging Dropbox for a Family plan for years. Individual 1 TB plans do NOT make sense and Dropbox kinda stop caring about home consumers as they chased the Enterprise paycheck.
No word on pricing, and they’ve only teased us with word of a private beta. In the words of Roberto Mateu, too little too late.

The surprising thing here is the overall market share of OS X - just under 10% of all installs worldwide, while Win10 alone is north of 57%.
This doesn’t mean anything for the cloud though, because MS shit the bed there, trying to push Win Server.

Windows is trying to bring Linux apps to Windows, while Linux is busy bringing OSX apps to Linux. It seems slowly we’ll end up converging all platforms. This is awesome!

Good article about good design and the “curse of knowledge”.

Service to convert accounts on major social networks/video services to RSS feeds. Uses their APIs. Very large library of services supported!

A world map worth of IOT devices. Is the density of deployment a good indicator of population and relative economic strength? Most of the data is 3 years old for some reason. Privacy, maybe?

Changing fancy quotes to simple quotes has been a problem for me for a while on iOS. Finally looked it up and it couldn’t have been more cryptic.

“The majority of Americans enjoyed The Big Bang Theory. Forgive me if I don’t have much faith.”
Couldn’t agree more!

TIL they’re called Numeronyms. Nice!

TIL the word necro, which means “to comment on an internet thread long after the conversation has concluded”
One of the best bookmarklets I’ve found. Simply kills sticky headers which often take way too much screen space on websites with insensitive developers.

This python library can be used to access Mac’s Keychain, Windows Credentials, and common Linux secret storage. That’s awesome! Perhaps, no more environment variables?

I like it when tools are as simple and single use as they can get. Unless they are Sublime Text. Always be Sublime Text, or a single use tool.

In typical twitter fashion, they made a good decision and then muddled it with their stupidly. Will they, by any chance, give us a tool to preregister wanted usernames? I doubt it.

One day, I just stopped coding in py2 and just switched over to py3. When I tried this years ago, the instant pain of print not working caused me to drop the idea within minutes. But a few months ago, it just worked and I couldn’t be more delighted!

I like reading NeimanLab for their coverage of the media landscape. It’s a little meta, but nice to see non-tech coverage of media companies navigating these waters.

This is brilliant! Just because we’ve moved on to new platforms and technologies doesn’t mean that these Classics should disappear. Converting them into new formats shows that these stories are indeed timeless!

MegaBots Eagle Prime battle mech goes on sale on Ebay while the company goes bankrupt. Get your wallets out!
wait, wait, let me get my pocket change out.

Looks weird and interesting. They refer to it at some point as 0ffice. I think it means Zero Office, which could be a synonym for this. Courtsey Oatmeal.

In typical money-minded person fashion, this ‘innovator’ is selling a product that is definitely, certainly, undoubtedly, NOT what he’s selling it as. If you just put water and banana in a mixer and mix then it’s a banana shake, or at best, banana juice. NOT milk. Idiots run this world.

This is silly MarketWatch/Nielsen - when more and more people are becoming cord cutters, how can they turn to 'trusty' broadcast TV?
When there’s just too much video streaming content to choose from, viewers turn to a trusty old friend: broadcast television.
Hogwash. I don’t have broadcast TV, and don’t intend to ever, and I suspect more and more people are turning to that. My theory? When we find nothing to watch, we go into mindless browsing mode, and there’s nothing better for that than YouTube. Check those numbers!

I just installed this and it works really well with the OS X dictionary app. I love Terminology for iOS for its simplicity and how easy it is to share a word to it from almost any reading app I read on.

Someone built an Electron Linux client for Notion… and called it Lotion… 😂😂

People always find me to ask - does this phrase look right? Most of the time, I end up doing a Google search for the phrase and if it’s been used enough historically (specially in Google Books) then it’s fine to use today.
This service automates that process in a great way! A simple search reveals similar strings, common uses, etc. Love it!
Paired with Hemingwayapp and Gingkoapp, the web is becoming a powerful place to write! (Scrivener beware!)
Hmmm. Seems like a good replacement for my liveblog. I don’t want to move my long form blogging from WordPress to anything else, but liveblogging and linkblogging can go to something more professional, and this does seem nice!
Sample site where I discovered this service is here - https://v2.jacky.wtf/stream

A simple online tool to edit text from a PDF in-browser.
You can edit lines but adding new ones is not easy/possible. But it works in a cinch and kicks Adobe to the curb, which couldn’t make me happier.

Was looking for this solution for my Ubuntu box and my boss Todd linked me to it. I discovered a few things - vimcat, the fact that I can install homebrew on linux, and that I love syntax highlighting!

It’s a simple app - it gives you journal prompts for when you’re out of ideas about what to write. Enjoy!
