Roberto Mateu's microblog

If I didn’t check the site already a few times a day, the new Techmeme Ride Home podcast would be a must-hear. Still giving it a few days.

The Angle is a nice looking straight razor. However, not sure I’d move away from my safety razor.

Had to rollback a release in production. Bummed after a weekend of testing. You can have your development environments all figured out… until you don’t.

Beach day.

The Death of Stalin wasn’t sitcom funny, it was actually painfully entertaining.

This iPad appears broken.

RAMS, about legendary German designer Dieter Rams – by Gary Hustwit (Helvetica, Objectified, Urbanized), with original music by Brian Eno.

Will watch the film, and probably buy the poster.

Enjoyed MacSparky’s Blogging Workflow:

Move the Cursor from Left to Right

At times I forget that this needs happen before I criticize a writing idea/intent to death.

Google and HTTP:

The web is a social agreement not to break things. It’s served us for 25 years. I don’t want to give it up because a bunch of nerds at Google think they know best.

With a few hundred words, Winer has completely changed my mind.

Today’s morning pomodoros soundtrack 🎵 is Stillness by Heron.

I don’t regret pushing my company to Slack last year. But in many cases, it creates as many problems as it solves. I was naive in thinking that a tool by itself would fix processes issues.

Great Vox video on app addictiveness. I do remember pull to refresh in Tweetie more fondly and less conspiratorially.

[…] Assistant will be able to understand you in multiple languages fluently.

Wow. Will work first on English, French and German, but this is amazing.

Apple TV hard reset was mostly painless. Sadly FetchTV crashes on launch (long live Fetch!). Moving my based entertaiment to Squire – which is looking pretty good.

Well, movie night got off to a fun start. Stuck in a loop with Apple TV and recovery mode.

Finally a lower priced Nest Aware plan ($5 a month, 3$ additional camera). My Nest wishlist from two years ago is almost done – just need better notifications.

Still happy with my WyzeCams, not likely to buy additional Nest’s.

Why It’s so Hard to Actually Work in Shared Offices

A member of the cleaning staff— a young Spanish-speaking woman with a tight ponytail— was one of the few people actually working. She moved quietly, picking up the dirty mugs that people had left lying about and stacking them into the dishwasher. Her shirt was emblazoned with the company slogan: Do What You Love.

The best closing paragraph I’ve read this year.

Enjoyed this scientifically anecdotal comparison of Apple Maps vs. Google Maps vs. Waze. Costa Rica is total Waze country, but I just can’t get use the UI/UX.

Here’s hoping that changing the iBooks name to Books, is mostly related to an upcoming laptopesque iOS device with a keyboard.

Con mi otra consentida.
