Squarespace Workshops

Squarespace just overhauled their Help site, which now includes a Workshops page with a load of videos.

Workshops are extended video walkthroughs, lasting 30 minutes to an hour, focusing on a specific aspect of building a website with Squarespace. Whether you want to know all about images, build an ecommerce website, or just need to get started we have a Workshop to walk you through it.

Definitely worth checking out if you’re thinking about setting up, or moving to, Squarespace.

Apple promises fix for iOS 7 spontaneous rebooting

“We have a fix in an upcoming software update for a bug that can occasionally cause a home screen crash,” Apple spokesperson Trudy Muller told Mashable.

Seriously this can’t come soon enough! My iPhone 5s and iPad Air reboot at least once a day, and usually at inopportune times like when I’m typing an email, a blog post, or when I’m trying to make a phone call.

Curiously it hasn’t happened when I’ve been playing any games so far.

SodaStream: Guilt-Free Seltzer or Blood Bubbles?

My first-ever holiday party was going great until someone in the living room wanted club soda for his vodka. It’s not that I wasn’t prepared. I was in the kitchen, overseeing eggnog, and I handed my co-host a bottle of seltzer made for the occasion with my SodaStream countertop carbonator. He’s the one who told me what happened next.

Conflict bubbles? Boy is it getting hard to take this world seriously.

iPhone 6 coming in June?

Chinese analyst Sun Changxu told Chinese-language website QQ Tech that she expects production on Apple’s next-generation iPhone to ramp up as soon as May in preparation for a debut at the company’s Worldwide Developers Conference in June. The so-called “iPhone 6” would sport a 4.7-inch, 1136 pixel-by-640 pixel display, with a higher-resolution 5.7-inch “phablet” variant to follow.

You’ve got to be kidding me, it’s way too early to start up the next iPhone rumour mill.

I reckon there’s a Dalrymple ‘nup’ coming soon.

Verses

This ad is art.

Apple thought enough of the spot to put it front and center on its homepage. I suspect we’ll see many more ads like it from competitors in the coming months. And those ads will fail because they will fail to see the reason for doing such an ad. They’ll be simply copying, not contributing, a verse.

There was a lot of negativity on twitter about this ad, personally I think it’s a fantastic ad and MG nails all the reasons why in his article.

Yay Science!
