I, For One, Welcome Our New Overcast


Marco Arment released Overcast yesterday. It’s a great addition to the widening selection of iOS podcast apps.

While third party podcast apps are ostensibly competing with each other, we share a common goal of convincing customers to use one in the first place. This is going to become even more…

It’s great to see independent developers supporting each other, even those in direct competition. Castro is still easily the best podcast app you can get.

One of my favorite bass-centric jazzy tracks, keeping me going this evening.

It’s 2150

There are all sorts of Aliens living throughout space.
Johnny is a Space Delivery Man who travels to different planets to deliver packages.
Johnny is lazy and his only desire is to sleep in his autopilot spaceship.
when the spaceship arrives at the destination, all he has to do is simply deliver the box.
However, it never goes as planned. Johnny encounters strange and bizarre planets
and always seems to cause trouble on his delivery route.

Will he be able to finish his mission without trouble?

What is littleBits? from littleBits on Vimeo.

littleBits is a system of electronic modules that snap together with magnets. We built littleBits to break the boundaries between the products we consume and the things we make, and to make everyone into an inventor.

Each littleBit has one unique function (light, sound, sensors, buttons), and with different combinations you can make large circuits. littleBits allows you to create interactive projects without any background in engineering, programming or wiring, in a few seconds. It’s as easy as snapping LEGO bricks together. And the best part is, it’s open source!

This video was entirely made with littleBits, check out the individual projects at:

We’ve been featured in the New York Times magazine, acquired by MoMA for the museum’s collection, called by Bloomberg TV “LEGO for the iPad generation“, won “Best of ToyFair 2012”, and we’re not tired one bit!
