If I did my best to summarize everything that makes me uneasy about the incestuous world of Apple indie developers and Apple-focused writers, I couldn’t do as well as my RSS feeds and Twitter stream did today in reacting to the launch of Vesper.
I normally enjoy reading many of the Apple bloggers and have come to respect their opinions on most things. But reading their gushing over Gruber’s new app comes off as nothing more than brown-nosing.
Dr. Drang goes on:
Here’s a thought experiment: Imagine a new note-taking app written by an unknown developer. It’s has a nice, clean look and is easy to use, but it has no syncing, no TextExpander support, and no URL scheme. Assuming the app got any attention at all, how much effort would Apple bloggers put into defending that design choice? How often would the phrase “data silo” be used?
I could quote his entire article. It is spot on. Do yourself a favour and go read it.
It seems pretty straightforward: you brush your teeth in the morning and in the evening then you’re all set. It turns out it’s not exactly that simple. While brushing your teeth at least twice a day is the usual recommendation, how and when you do it isn’t as simple as you’d think.
Some good advice. I think most of it is common sense, but this bit did surprise me:
Don’t put too much pressure on your teeth, you need to brush all the way up to gums, but don’t do it too hard.
I’ve actually been told that recently by my dentist, but it was never mentioned to me by anyone in the 30+ years previous.
