Ever wonder how many of your fellow graphic designers break the law? Well, around 60% of them are at least honest about it when they say they are. Grab a copy of The Hidden Risks of Font Misuse, a survey of creatives conducted by Extensis.
About 80% don’t bother to read a font license, because around 80% of us can’t understand a frigging word of the legal mumbo-jumbo. I suspect this is at least 50% of the problem.
I’d love to see VIP moved from Mail’s settings to Contacts proper, so that I can make sure the people who are literally “very important” get through more easily, no matter how they choose to communicate with me. And it’d be great if it happened with iOS 9.

Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, this morning published an essay on Bloomberg Business Week in which he announced he is gay. Shock. Well, not really. Most Apple fans already knew this, and most everyone else probably took a where there is smoke, there’s fire opinion on the subject.
I think it’s awesome that he came out publicly like this, I just wish we lived in a time when this wasn’t news at all.
OS X Yosemite has been out for a while now, and I’m enjoying the heck out of using it. It’s probably the most full-featured OS release Apple has offered us in quite a while. While you’ve probably read plenty about the hero features, it’s still worth reading John Siracusa’s full review. At 25 pages in length, it’s about as in-depth as you can get.
I’m not sure what people’s fascination with making the email process into anything but email, but apparently Google is on board. Gmail wasn’t bad enough, now there’s Google Inbox. I wonder how long it’ll be before they kill this, too.
