    @ggirton Adding "...for the company I wish Apple were" is definitely more accurate, although I'm not quite willing to accept that they aren't that company still. On their best days they are, and some of what they're doing with e.g. health is fantastic.

      @pilgrim So annoying. Good luck getting through the queue.

        @ronnie Thanks! Hope you enjoy it.

          @morrison Whoops, thanks! I switched servers after the show went out today, and for some reason the filename changed. All fixed now.

              Follow-up to my earlier post about Medium: custom domains [medium.com] are a great step in the right direction, even if they're limited to select publishers for now.

                @lapcat I agree. I like the new look of the MacBook, but for $1300 it should come with a $20 cable.

                    Great talk by Joe Cieplinski [www.youtube.com] at the MCE 2015 conference in Warsaw about becoming an independent developer. I listened to this a couple weeks ago and meant to link to it earlier. Found via the equally excellent iOS Dev Weekly [iosdevweekly.com] newsletter.

                      @oluseyi I guess I just assume there are more Android device sizes than anyone knows what to do with already. :-) @johngordon @gtwilson

                        @gtwilson I’m convinced it will happen. If Apple can make 4 sizes of laptops, they can make another phone size.

                          @clarkgoble @lapcat I made that same "for the rest of us" point on the @coreint podcast a couple weeks back. If the Edition is really $10k (I don't think it will be), then Apple has gotten pretty far away from what I think of as their mission statement.

                            @lapcat Heh, maybe. And of course Cook, Ive, and the other execs have plenty of money. I wonder if that fact has distracted them on the importance of the high end watch models.
                            manton
                              @lapcat This is why my guess at Edition pricing is $2999. Selling a watch for more than the price of a Mac Pro just seems ridiculous to me. I hope Apple has better things to do than cater to the super rich.

                                @ronnie I'll be buying but at the lowest price. I'm not completely sold on the whole thing outside of fitness (which many other fitness bands can do), but at the very least I'll need it to develop apps.
