A glimpse at Apple's new Bug Reporter [Update: It's back!]

Over the weekend, Apple’s Bug Reporter website saw a short-lived facelift. Developers were treated to a visually overhauled website on Saturday, but seems to have been reverted to its old, archaic predecessor sometime Sunday. If you missed it, you weren't alone.

Apple's signature, its meaning, and its promise

This was Tim Cook's WWDC, not only headlined by a risky, heavily skeuomorphic, deeply gamified iOS 7, but wrapped in messaging that elaborated on their core beliefs, and re-affirmed a promise to the people who use their products.

ADN's Dalton Caldwell talks micro-blogging, mixing, and being the platform

Live from WWDC 2013 I sat down with Dalton Caldwell and got a State of the App.net -- everything from the current and varied crop of micro-blogging clients to the new messaging apps and photo mashups to what ADN could do better and where they're headed in the future.

WWDC 2013 Day 1

I lined up at 2am for the WWDC 2013 keynote. It was early, it was cold. But there were great people in line to talk with and the time passed surprisingly fast. Marc Gurman was there, as was Adam Bell, Grant Paul (chpwn), Marc Edwards, the Nickelfish crew, and many, many others. But that was just the beginning...!
