15-inch MacBook Air reportedly on track for Q1 2012

Apple is expected to launch new MacBook Air models sometime in the first quarter of 2012, according to sources within the company’s supply chain speaking to DigiTimes on Monday. The new Air will come in 11- and 13-inch sizes, like the current version, but will also add a 15-inch model to the mix, according to the report.

I’m actually coming into the market for a new work laptop, currently I have a 13″ MacBook Pro that’s about 2.5 years old and starting to feel it’s age a little since I moved over to Lion.

All along I knew where this was going, still made me a little sad that it’s not a reality yet and that this discrimination still exists.

I support marriage equality. If you love someone and you want to get married, then you should be able to. It doesn’t matter what your sexuality is, love is love and it should be recognised as such.

Randy Murray makes some decent points in his article, The Case Against Curation.

A curator is someone who is responsible for the care and conservation of something. A curate, for example, is responsible for the souls in a congregation. A curator is responsible for a collection in a museum. A curator is not responsible for a list of favorites in other museums.

A web site or a blog with links pointing to other web sites or blogs is not being curated. Such things are lists. There may be commentary, but by the very nature of the web, the person assembling the links does not have primary responsibility to care for the linked things. He or she has no control over them. They are not preserved and maintained by the one who links to them.

Hard to argue with that.

Excerpt from Amber Case’s The Setup interview.

…but I can run Sims whenever something seems odd in the house. Turns out that an errant chair or a table configuration might cause undue friction and, over time, decrease joy and happiness. It’s difficult to step outside of life and watch it from an isomorphic architecture view in 30x speed, but the Sims allows you to do that. It’s kind of my version of debugging life…

Now this is how you hack your life. The sheer geekery at play here is intense, and I must confess quite intimidating.

Twine looks neat, and if it functions as described I reckon it’s pretty cool.

Want to hook up things to the Web? Maybe you want to get a tweet when your laundry’s done, or get an email when the basement floods while you’re on vacation. Even if you’re good with electronics and programming, these are involved projects. Instead of worrying about wiring or networking code, you can focus on your idea.

This spot just reeks of trying too hard. At least they’re trying right?
