  1. Apple Fitness+ Studios Behind the Scenes: From Start to Finish | DC Rainmaker

    Lots of info about how all the workouts are planned, rehearsed, filmed, and edited. Fascinating.

  2. Montaigne

    Turns a folder in your Apple Notes into a website (with RSS feed). (via

  3. Infinite Mac

    A working System 7 Mac (and too) in my browser. With games. Amazing. (via @benbrown)

  4. LEM Swap UK | Low End Mac

    Maybe this is a good place to find a home for some of those old OS/application CDs I still have… (via Ask MetaFilter)

  5. Graphing Calculator Story

    I don’t think I knew this before, and it’s much better than I expected “How the Mac’s graphing calculator was made” to be.

  6. General Magic: Oral History of the Influential Tech Company

    “Oral history” seems to mean “interviews broken into tiny snippets to give the impression of a conversation” but this excerpt of a book is still good. I remember that interface from an early Wired article.

  7. An oral history of ‘Get a Mac,’ Part 1 | Campaign US

    A good read, that mainly reminds me I need some more John Hodgeman in my life. (via @antimega)

  8. Jonathan Ive and the Future of Apple - The New Yorker

    Long profile and interview with Ive from around the launch of the Apple Watch.


    Very good. And even only recognising a handful of the comic artists copied, it’s great just as an example of how many different ways you can draw a black-and-white comic. (via @yoz)

  10. How Apple Makes the Watch — Atomic Delights

    An explanation of the shots in Apple’s video about making their Watch, for those of us who know little about manufacturing or how impressive the processes might be. (via Tom Taylor)

    Haven’t tried it, but looks good/handy/fun. (via One Terabyte of Kilobyte Age)

  12. [Updated] The rise and fall of personal computing | asymco

    Just spent a while trying to find these graphs, having seen them once before. So now they’re here. Really interesting, market share of computing platforms since 1975.

  13. Apple’s design problems aren’t skeuomorphic « counternotions

    A really good look at the more fundamental problems with iOS and OS X, how that compares with the old days when the Human Interface Guidelines were the law, and whether one person, Ive, can really keep on top of such a wide range of potential problems. (via Daring Fireball)

  14. Apple’s 1980s clothing catalogue in pictures - Telegraph

    I expect everyone has or will link to this, but I bet I’ll want to look at it again at some point. Also, supports my idea that anything from, say, 15+ years ago that appears online looks *very* old.

  15. Building and dismantling the Windows advantage | asymco

    Blimey, those are quite some graphs, showing ratio of Windows:Mac, and Windows:Apple sales over time. (via Daring Fireball)

  16. Apple Map Tiles

    A viewer for Apple’s new map tiles, as used in iPhoto on iOS. I quite like some of it - a nice change from the norm - but if I could change only one thing… those italicised place names are *hideous*.

  17. “Secret” Firmware lets Late ‘08 MacBooks use 8GB. | Other World Computing Blog

    Ooh, blimey, looks like I could double the RAM in my three-year-old MacBook. (via Tom Taylor)

  18. Are you listening, Steve Jobs? « BirdAbroad

    Wow - almost entirely convincing fake Apple Stores in China. So convincing (unless you’re a bit too obsessed with Apple’s typography etc) even the employees think they work for Apple. (via Haddock)

  19. You Can’t Innovate Like Apple — Pragmatic Marketing

    About how Apple designs products, but particularly for the bit about designing 10 very finished designs, and the brainstorm/production meetings. (via @paulpod)

  20. Orbicule | Undercover | F.A.Q.

    Fascinating software and service to help trace your Mac if it’s stolen. Even sounds vaguely feasible. (via Daring Fireball)

  21. Doonesbury (db930827.gif)

    “Egg freckles?” To save me finding it again.

  22. Apple - Pro - Tips - Become the Ultimate Menu Master

    I never knew that. If only I could get a Control key working on my non-Apple external keyboard.

  23. Hawk Wings

    Apple Mail blog. I was thinking of switching to Apple Mail from Eudora when I saved this link, but probably won’t now. But just in case…

  24. While Supplies Last

    RSS feeds for the refurbished items available at US, UK and Canadian online Apple Stores.

    Robert X. Cringely (and correspondents) on the Mac Mini and where it could lead.

  31. NeXT Screenshot

    Steve Jobs introduces you to

  32. Panic - Extras - The True Story of Audion

    Cabel Sasser on the story of developing Audion and the emergence of iTunes. A long but great read.
