Adonit Customer Service Rocks

Over a year ago I bought an Evernote Jot Script stylus by Adonit, and while it had excellent build quality, I could never quite get it to work right. I chalked it up to the fact that I must be holding it wrong or some other issue, and it slowly…

MobileViews: That Podcast I’m a Regular Guest On

For almost a year now I’ve been Todd Ogasawara’s regular guest / cohost on MobileViews Podcast (available on the web, iTunes, and wherever fine Podcasts are found). Realized I don’t really talk about this often on my own blog so consider this a friendly reminder. I may also start posting…

you only see the lock if you select at the top the network users or network group – via discussions.apple.com I’m going to rant about an Apple Design decision, but it has nothing to do with any i-device of any kind. It’s purely around the Mac OS X Server 4.0…

It was WordPress SEO Again

Again WordPress SEO stopped my posts from being publicized to Facebook. Deactivated it and posts went through. Activated it but turned off Open Graph (In Social Settings) and it went through. Now I’ve re-enabled Open Graph and we’ll see if this goes through! (And it didn’t, so I disabled Open…

Publishing to Facebook?!?

For reasons I’ll never understand, the WordPress Jetpack social plugin that’s supposed to be able to publish my stuff everywhere (i.e. FB, Twitter, LinkedIn, Tumblr, Google+) sometimes doesn’t want to publish it to the network I get 70% of my traffic from: Facebook. Not sure what that is, but I’m back…
