All the personality was in the physics. And that's just where it's gone in Tweetbot 3 as well.

LinkedIn released what, on the surface, sounds like a great new feature: Intro. It lets you have fancy business-centric HTML content injected right in your emails.

My phone rang. In heavy metal. "Hi Jim!" The laugh hit me like a Heineken-fueled right cross. "Hey, Rene. So I'm making a new version of The Loop Magazine app..." That was great news. Dalrymple's Loop Magazine - which, full disclosure, I'd written for twice - was an ode to Apple, tech, and music nerdery, and I enjoyed it dearly. But, app-wise, it was already struggling to keep up with what Jim wanted to do. And that's just when the bearded uppercut hit. "So, do you know this guy, Chris Harris?"

Gmail and Mavericks Mail: Why they aren't playing nice and what you can do about it

Google has never had anything approximating what you could call a normal IMAP implementation for Gmail. However, under Mail in OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion and previous versions, many of us learned to work around and otherwise live with it. No longer! OS X 10.9 Mavericks changes the way the Mail app works, and in doing so, is less forgiving of Gmail's idiosyncrasies than ever before. Joe Kissel on TidBITS:
