iPhone photos of flowers in our yard this morning came out surprisingly well.

Great article about Mo Farah—the operative word is “incomprehensible” (he trains at sub-4-minute-mile pace!)

My favorite pancake griddle in the entire universe. Kudos to Borodino.

Even Apple gets tripped up by sandboxing. Photos threw this error when I tried to move a photo to the Family album. No idea why - the photo in question came from iCloud Photo Library so was definitely in the Photos Library.

Life is good! The Rustic Granite Hat spammers are back, with Small Concrete Gloves and Gorgeous Steel Shoes. I want the whole suit!

I really need some Dense Foam Underwear to keep me warm.  Where are these guys?  How can I get some?

Or, is this just the band re-forming after their breakup?

Another great article about Mo Farah, and I love the fact that Malcolm Gladwell can geek out on running with the best of them. One of my goals is to race Gladwell in the mile - perhaps I'll be healthy for the 5th Avenue Mile when I'm 50 in a few years.

This is the first hit on Google Image Search. It's even more awful than I thought it'd be.

Story
Tagline
Publisher of TidBITS and the Take Control series of ebooks
Introduction
Adam C. Engst is the publisher of TidBITS, one of the oldest and most-respected Internet-based newsletters, distributed weekly to tens of thousands of readers. He has written numerous technical books, including the best-selling Internet Starter Kit series, and many magazine articles - thanks to Contributing Editor positions at MacUser, MacWEEK, and now Macworld. His innovations include the creation of the first advertising program to support an Internet publication in 1992, the first flat-rate accounts for graphical Internet access in 1993 (with Northwest Nexus for Internet Starter Kit for Macintosh), and the highly successful Take Control electronic book series. In addition, he has collaborated on several Internet educational videos and has appeared on a variety of internationally broadcast television and radio programs. His indefatigable support of the Macintosh community and commitment to helping individuals has resulted in numerous awards and recognition at the highest levels. In the annual MDJ Power 25 survey of industry insiders, he ranked as the second (2000), third (2001, 2002), fourth (2003), fifth (2004), and third (2005/2006) most influential person in the Macintosh industry. He has also been included on the MacTech 25 list of influential people in the Macintosh technical community for both 2006 and 2007, and he was named one of MacDirectory's top ten visionaries. And how many industry figures can boast of being turned into an action figure?
