I don’t like comments. Never have, never will. Ding me on Twitter, or email me. If you write a response on your own blog to something I’ve written, please email or tweet me. I’d love to take a look.

Conflicts of Interest

All apps, products, goods, services, and similar are promoted as personal recommendations, not financial opportunities.

Affiliate links will be marked clearly as such. For example, if you’d like to support the site, shop at Amazon and I’ll get a small cut. As a general rule, links to Amazon and iTunes content (including Mac App Store, iOS App Store, and iBooks) will be affiliate links. Unless I forget.

If you’ve read the above and are wondering whether this site is in any way profitable, the answer is a resounding “no”. Thanks to the support of those of you who click on affiliate links, though, plus the small revenue from the sidebar ad, I’m very happy that this site is breaking even. It pays its own bills, and that’s what’s important to me.


If you’re curious, I don’t write this site full-time. I am a designer and front-end developer.

Other places you can find me include Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, and VSCO Grid. Also, here’s an outdated screenshot of my home screen.
