I finally figured out why Samsung makes anti-iPhone ads...

Samsung keeps making commercials that, instead of highlighting features potential customers might find compelling, spend most of their time showing off iPhones, and trying to make iPhone owners look pained, beleaguered, and just plain stupid. It never made sense to me as an acquisition strategy, though. iPhone owners aren't going to appreciate being called stupid and switch to Samsung, they're going to call Samsung stupid right back. But with this latest commercial, where Samsung misrepresents the differences in charging methods, I finally understood what was going on. Samsung isn't trying to win over iPhone owners—they're desperate to keep Galaxy owners.

This year, file your beta bugs early

When it comes to reporting bugs on Apple's betas, get them in before it's too late.

Filing radars—the popular term for submitting problems to Apple's bug reporting system—is a lot of work. What's more, it almost never results in any official recognition or appreciation, and sometimes it feels like an exercise in frustration and futility. Yet filing radars remains invaluable to the engineers inside Apple, and the sooner you file, the better it is for everyone, especially your shared customers.

An introduction to WebKit content blockers

I'm not sure what to think of content blockers in Apple's Safari for iPhone and iPad browser, and the technology that powers it, the open source WebKit.

As someone who makes content, I never block it. That's because I want more content and blocking it will lead to less. That said, I'm trying to understand content blocking and what it means not just for my work on the web, but my life on it.
