  • Apple's App Store is an ad-ridden mockery of its former self. (Business Insider)

    If you're working on a good an useful app, you have to jump through flaming hoops to get it in the App Store.

    If you're producing worthless garbage that makes Apple money, no problem at all.


  • The same Ikea desk legs that were out of stock before are out of stock again. Should have ordered them when I had the chance, even if I'm not planning to put those desks in place right away.

    That only affects the main office; the desks in at least four of the other five rooms use different legs that are still in stock and which I am going to order right now before those also disappear.

    Ordering the legs for ten desks gives me a delivery fee of $29. One small desktop, $599. That's why I didn't place an order sooner.


  • Speaking of ordering stuff, I bought some books. I buy books all the time - every time there's a Humble Book Bundle that isn't rubbish I'll throw some money at it, so I average about 100 new books a month.

    But those are digital. I stopped buying paper books a few years ago because (a) I mostly read on my tablet and (b) my old house was completely and utterly out of room.

    Now I have room. Lots of. Have to buy all the books before they stop printing them.
