    @johngordon main reason I stick to Launchbar is ⌘G to get the Finder selection and pass it to the app of my choice.

      @manton what electric car did you get? Love my Leaf.

        @johngordon netstep was display postscript for windowing and controls. It's been a while but as I recall that could go over network ala Xwin.

          @johngordon PPP dialup to internet connection. Shudder.

            @johngordon At this stage it’s too late to make sophisticated sharing. MS had to design it into their windowing early on for IT clients. Apple dropped it from NS when made Quartz.

              @johngordon it's just open source VNC behind the scenes. RDC is halfway between xwin and VNC but captures far more.

                @johngordon don’t think anything surpasses Maps initial launch or even last iWork launch.

                  @johngordon Lots of people note that for all the skeuomorphic problems (often more due to Jobs honestly) Forstall tended to worry about a lot things like affordances much more. (Although MacOS graybeards would say it still was’t enough)

                    @johngordon In particular discoverability and affordances have been a low priority for Alan Dye in designing iOS7. I think the new iTunes shows that to be controversial at best. (Lots of reviews saying they love the service and hate the UI)
                    clarkgoble
                      @johngordon In any case I’m more curious about Alan Dye who was largely responsible for the new look and feel of Apple. He’s the controversial figure not Ive.

                        @johngordon Watch is still supply constrained so I don’t think that’s the problem. I’ve heard rumors Ive was burnt out and wants to step back and just review stuff though.

                          @phoneboy It’s 37C out and we took the whole family for a walk up the mountain side. I *know* I’m crazy.

                            @johngordon Note that only ToDo Cloud uses CalDav though. But this SO page discusses how to get CalDav data with a single command. http://bit.ly/1CPfc47

                              @johngordon They did indicate exports might be in the next version http://bit.ly/1CPeUdJ There is a SQLite database you can access if you’re comfortable with tat.

                                @johngordon Really, really solid. I rarely have more than 30 to dos though so maybe I’m not the best test. I try and go through my todos as fast as possible.

                                  @johngordon However a lot of bugs that annoyed me the first day are gone. So they must have been somehow indirectly related to the back end. Been really solid. Still lots of decisions I don’t like, but much better than say Maps or Photos at their start.

                                    @johngordon Not as many critical bugs. More a lot of small annoying bugs. A lot appeared have been related to scaling up the service the first few days. I heard Apple actually crashed AWS several times the first day taking out a lot of other web sites.

                                      @johngordon Give China credit for cleverly avoiding a lot of problems. Can’t last forever - especially now that other southeast asian countries that are poorer than China can start to do what China did. They’re about due for military hubris overreach too.

                                        @rabryst @pme @eyes @joeo10 That makes sense then. (Back in the day I’d always rip my brothers CDs when he’d come down to visit)
