…Lifehacker is writing a book?

Lifehacker Book

Lifehacker.com, a great source of life hacks (clever shortcuts or lesser-known, faster ways to complete a task), is publishing a book. Called Lifehacker: 88 Tech Tricks to Turbocharge Your Day, it’s a supplement/companion to their very popular web site, “a collection of the best how-to’s from the site archives”. It’s an open source book in the sense that the already published material is “enhanced by additions, suggestions, questions and answers from Lifehacker readers”. If you enjoy “redefining personal productivity by tweaking, modding, mashing up, and repurposing web apps, desktop software, and common everyday objects”, then this book is for you. I’ve been an avid reader of Lifehacker for quite some time now, and judging by the material they’ve published in the past, a collection of their best stuff is a definite must have for any techie library’s shelves.

…My Dream App winners have been announced?

My Dream App

My Dream App, the Apple software revolution, is over. After calculating nearly 14,000 votes, three winners have been announced. Though they weren’t my top choices, Cookbook, Portal, and Atmosphere will soon see production as full-fledged Mac Apps, and the world should be a better place for it. My only hope is that some other app development teams jump all over the loosing apps, as there were a few ideas buried in there that I was really looking forward to seeing come to life. Congrats to those that made it, and condolences to those that didn’t.
