Wired Ranks the Rumors

As Christina Bonnington reports in Wired:

Each week, there are dozens of rumors, reports, and patent filings that hint at what’s coming out of Cupertino next. Some are legit, but many are totally bogus. As always, we’ve parsed the rumors, ranking them in order from “utterly ridiculous” to “duh, of course”. First up…

Were You at the Meeting Last Night?

If not, you missed an utterly fascinating presentation, and there weren’t many people in the audience who would disagree.

At Coco’s, the conversation ranged from death and dying in opera, to NASA, to various iPad intricacies.

That’s my story; I’m sticking to it!

Who are you and what do you do?

At The Sweet Setup:

Every week we try to post a new interview with someone about what software they use on their Mac, iPhone, or iPad. We do these interviews because not only are they fun, but a glimpse into what tools someone uses and how they use those tools can spark our imagination and give us an idea or insight into how we can do things better.

Today’s victim, er, interviewee:

Oh hey, my name is Zach Slootsky, I’m a photographer working in Toronto, but two years ago, like an idiot, I opened a restaurant called The Federal. Now I spend most of my time running it like a boss (literally) and devising systems that make me feel clever.

Today’s victim, er, interviewee:

My name is John Voorhees. I live in Hinsdale, Illinois, with my wife and three sons.

By day, I am a bankruptcy lawyer at a law firm in Chicago. Most of my work is on large corporate Chapter 11 reorganizations for creditors like banks.

I also help my eldest son with Squibner Software, his iOS development business, which led me to learn iOS programming myself. I have two apps on the iTunes App Store, including a soundboard companion app to Myke Hurley and Matt Alexander’s Bionic podcast called Vlcnr. Next up is an iTunes affiliate linking app for bloggers that I expect to release when iOS 8 debuts.
