    If I have an app in the iOS App Store today running on iOS6+, can I ship an iOS 7+ ONLY update such that folks on iOS6 can continue to use the old version? I realize I'll get no new installs on iOS6 though.

      Some of my iOS related followers may have missed the news at //build/ - we launched Azure Mobile Services out of preview and into GA. I even demo’d mobile services _on a Mac_ in the keynote: http://channel9.msdn.com/Events/Build/2013/1-002 (31 mins in)

        It's not scope creep when it's REALLY cool, right?

          Special for my (handful of) ADN followers! Go try the web version of my free list sharing app http://doto.mobi/web/ (also an ios version http://doto.mobi)

            Whenever I use the multitasking tray in ios (does that thing have a name?), I’m amazed by how many apps I used since I last used the one I’m looking for. It’s always pages of stuff!

              @zacharyaklein no problem, thanks for the suggestion though - going to try them out

                @zacharyaklein why not, post it here or mail me at jtwist @youknowwhere .com :)

                  @zacharyaklein that is incredible value, and they seem to be very well rated. Looks like I may be saying goodbye to Carbonite! Thanks for the heads up.

                    @aacharyaklein The CrashPlan website seems incredibly slow right now, not building confidence! :D

                      @zacharyaklein to backup the external disk - did you go with CrashPlan Family at $9/month?

                        @zacharyaklein I'll take a look. Is that just a TB/USB drive then… not network attached?

                          I've been looking at NAS solutions but none seem to come with an easy cloud/online backup component… which is essential. I fear burglary and house fire as much as disk failure.

                            Need to improve my photo storage and online backup setup. Running out of space on rMBP so need to move lightroom catalog elsewhere. But carbonate don't backup external disks. What are others doing?

                              Secret heads up for App.net: Panic is looking to hire one, possibly two, amazing iOS/Mac engineers. This doesn't happen often. I haven't blogged/tweeted it yet. If you are amazing, or you know someone who is, e-mail work-engineer@panic.com . Thanks!

                                @zacharyaklein because that’s what Mobile Services uses? :)

                                  We still have some places left for our iOS meetup with @collindonnell on Core Data and me on Azure Mobile Services: http://mobileservices.eventbrite.com - get 'em whilst you can.

                                    . @jonathanpenn the name Jo(h)n needs standardization clearly. Reminds me of JavaScript in the IE / navigator days.
