Although not directly related to iOS development, one of the most surprising and unfortunate pieces of news I read this past week was that Tobias Frere-Jones, one half of the renowned type foundry Hoefler & Frere-Jones was suing his business partner of 15 years for what he sees as his fair share of half of the company. One big takeaway for all of you folks doing contracting work or considering doing contracting work is that you should always get everything written down and signed....

Eight years ago, I watched a TED talk by Jeff Han on his innovative research into multitouch displays. Little did I know at the time that less than a year later, Steve Jobs would walk onto the stage at MacWorld to demonstrate not just a research prototype, but a real product that would be available to consumers just months later[1].

Meanwhile, New Years is always a great time to reflect on the past even as we look ahead to the future. In tha...

Happy new year, everyone! As 2013 draws to a close, I just want to thank you all again for your support. Cocoa Controls would be nothing without its community, which means you. Without your apps, or your open source controls the site wouldn't be worth much.

2013 was also a big year for Apple and iOS, with Apple releasing the most significant set of changes to the operating system since its original release in 2007, a much-needed overhaul of the Mac Pro, somehow managing to shove both...
