A La Carte (June 2)

John Gruber’s WWDC Prelude - His predictions and hopes for today’s announcements are in keeping with my own. I’m especially interested in Mac OS 10.10, or whatever Apple will call it.

iOS 8 Could Move This Direction - Designer Jay Machalani has lovingly produced a series of Home Screen ideas for the future of iOS 8. I think his novel ideas are user friendly, and they would add some appeal to the iOS 7 standard.

Editorial and Fantastical on the iPad Make New Calendar Events Fast - Federico Viticci sure likes to be the wiz with his iPad. He proves yet again that the iPad is a powerful customizable pro tool. Editorial 1.1 is looking very attractive these days.

The Apple QuickTake 200 Camera - Do you remember when Apple sold cameras in the 90s? They were short lived and they make great novelties now. Stephen Hacket shows off his QuickTake 200.

Beats’ Redesigned Solo2 Headphones - Apple is acquiring Beats Music. Beats has the music apps and the listening hardware. Their latest for your listening enjoyment is a revamp of their standard set of headphones, and I would like very much to give them a try.

Amazon’s New Marketplace for Collectible Coins - In the “noteworthy yet boring” category, Amazon has opened shop for coin collectors, with more than 10,000 unique, rare, valuable coins to choose from.
