→ Import Your Vesper Notes Into Ulysses

I never used Vesper (because it didn’t have sync or a Mac version), but if you did, this is a good way to make the switch.

→ I’m done with iCloud Photo Library

This is scary. As someone who values photos so highly, I’m not extra concerned about recommending Apple’s offering.

→ Clinging To Relevance, Yahoo Prevents Ad Block Users From Checking Yahoo Mail

Stay classy, Yahoo.

→ AT&T, Verizon try to prevent ban on text message blocking

Shocking. I’m shocked.

→ Getting an App Store Refund

I’m glad they ended up making this easier.

→ Rdio shutting down, and Pandora will buy its technology

This is a bummer. I really liked Rdio, but Spotify ended up interacting directly with apps like RunKeeper that I use all the time, so I switched. I imagine Apple Music helped speed Rdio’s collapse.

→ Is iPhone 6s faster than a Mac

I feel like this is more to this than the graphs indicate. I look forward to someone (read: not me) explaining what is is “off” about this comparison.

→ Apple shooting to release car by 2019

As you might expect, I am interested in seeing what comes out of this.

→ Brett Terpstra gives some tips on how to Write Better Markdown

None of these are earth shattering, but I would recommend that anyone who writes Markdown take a look at them.

→ Recovering deleted iCloud Drive files

I didn’t realize this was possible, but I am glad it is.

→ Joshua Topolsky Fired From Bloomberg

This is so weird. I hope he comes back to something I actually read.

→ If your Mac or iThing runs Yosemite or iOS 8, it can run El Capitan and iOS 9

It’s crazy that Apple keeps updating such old devices. Impressive, but crazy.

→ iOS, OS X, music, Swift, and more: What you should know before WWDC next week

Ars Technica breaks down everything you might want to know heading into the Apple Keynote next week.

→ Scott Kelby is Dumping My Apple Watch

Here’s the breakdown:

  • Apple wants you to charge your watch at night.

  • Apple wants you to charge your watch every night.

  • Scott didn’t like to watch his watch at night, every night.

  • Scott’s watch couldn’t make it through the day.

This doesn’t mean that the watch is a “bad” product, or that Scott isn’t “using his watch right”, but it does mean that the Apple Watch isn’t for him.

→ AJ Lee collaborates with Girls Make Games

I am still bummed that we won’t see AJ in the ring for a while,1 I am glad she is doing some cool stuff away from the ring.

  1. What? Let me dream of her actually coming back some day. 

→ Apple’s New MacBook’s Trackpad Does Not Move

This whole concept is so intriguing to me. I cannot wait to try this out.

→ Ulysses for iPad now Available

My favorite writing app for Mac1, Ulysses, now has an iPad version2. I’ve been on the beta for this app for the past couple of months and have written everything from blog posts, to contracts, to full legal briefs in it. It’s everything you love about Ulysses but in a much more portable format. Highly recommended.3

  1. Version 2.0 of the Mac App is also available today in the Mac App Store

  2. Affiliate Link (as is the post link and other app links in this post). 

  3. Ben Brooks also has a review if you want more information.

Some interesting information concerning how credit cards will be changing.
