Under the influence of Bryan Irace, an iOS engineer at Tumblr, I’ve open-sourced a lot of handy iOS utilities lately. These are all polished, single-purpose units of code which should be cake to drop into your projects.

😊

My biggest contributions to open source this year have just been convincing Jared to release all of this stuff.

What DSLR should I get?

I know nothing about cameras, but I’m going on a vacation this summer that I’d really like to have a DSLR along for. Since I don’t own one, I’m looking to either buy or rent. I have no idea how fast DSLR technology moves, but am fine with purchasing one as long as it isn’t going to become outdated too quickly. I’ll probably only use it two or three times a year, so I don’t want to buy something that’ll be antiquated by the fifth or sixth time I reach for it. If that’s going to be the case, I’d rather rent up until the point when I think I’d use it more frequently.

I’ve previously borrowed this camera from Nick Theusen, which definitely met my needs, quality-wise. I’m guessing I’d want to buy something similar, though being slightly more compact would be even better. Any suggestions?

When the app launches in the coming weeks, the company’s mobile apps will be updated to let you snooze messages not just to tomorrow, but back to your computer. The feature could come in handy on trips, for example, when you want to clear out most of your inbox until you get back to your desk so you can focus on more urgent messages while you’re traveling.
So excited for Mailbox for OS X.
I gushed about The Raid a few weeks back, and just last week saw The Raid 2: Berandal at a local theater. It’s not an exaggeration to say that I think it’s the best action movie I’ve ever seen.

The Raid was as high-concept as can be, with more guns and punches than plot or dialogue. The Raid 2, to the contrary, is an ambitious crime epic, rich in both violence and story. It’s 150 minutes but never feels even slightly long. I immediately wanted to go watch it again.

I can’t remember the last time I was as in awe with a director as I currently am with Gareth Evans.
