Weekly Roundup: Work and Play

Aaron Brethorst | March 29, 2014

Did you know that Apple doesn't offer a tablet OS "that lets you work and play"? Yeah, I wasn't aware of that, either. Fortunately, our long nightmare of not being able to work and play on the iPad is finally over with this past week's release of

Weekly Roundup: Tim Cook, TestFlight, and Toast

Aaron Brethorst | March 01, 2014

Thankfully, with the release of Mac OS X 10.9.2, last week's SSL crisis is over, and we can get back to wringing our hands about the impending death of TestFlight. The good folks at Apptentive have a pretty comprehensive list of replacement services that you might want to check out. Of late, I have been using
