Review: OmniPlan

William Gallagher, MacNN:

We think OmniPlan is well-suited for anyone on a Mac who has to plan long or complex projects that involve other people or other resources, short of the highest-end project managers who need better agile support, or are committed to working across teams on Windows. If you want to brainstorm a project, use an outliner. For your own To Dos and projects, consider OmniFocus. For pulling together a project with Mac- or iPad-using colleagues and thinking big, this is what you're looking for. If you think OmniFocus is too powerful, this will leave you blinking.

Apple Is Still a Startup

Andrés Martinez, Time:

What’s most astonishing, given those numbers, is that Apple is far less ubiquitous than you might think. It has plenty of room to grow. Indeed, it may only be getting started.

I disagree slightly: The company is not itching to grow into markets that Apple is not in today. It is patiently waiting for the world to move into Apple's vision.

The Broken App Store

Richard Kim, Medium on the App Store's user rating system:

Of course I realize how much Apple has already done to get its developer environment to where it is now. Dealing with that many people building so many dumb things, and trying to prevent cheaters from taking over the system is an insane job. That being said, I think this is one component of the developer ecosystem that has to be addressed.
