Loom is the service I landed on for uploading and enjoying my photos. While I still miss Everpix, Loom is a very nice service with great apps for iOS. Today, the company announced they have finally rolled out full video support for the iPhone and iPad apps. You can now watch videos in your Loom account right on your iOS device using the Loom app. You can read about the update on the Loom blog, and if you haven’t tried Loom yet, you can use this link to get some free space and check the service out.
If I’m making choices that make it harder for writers to make a living I’m ultimately just shooting myself in the foot.
David Smith has an impressive post regarding the recent Feedly discoveries, namely the fact that they were hijacking share links in articles in order to drive more traffic to Feedly itself, rather than the sites who created the content to begin with. This is cheap way to inflate your traffic stats, even if it’s all in the name of “driving engagement.” The goal of any reading service should be to drive engagement to the content and creators, not the reading service. What good is a reading service if there’s nothing to read? Hopefully Feedly will take permanent action here. The Feed Wrangler blog post is excellent. And while you’re there, you should join Feed Wrangler, and kick Feedly to the curb.
I don’t usually deviate from tech-type posts on here, but my dear friend Allen has finally released more music. This particular record is extra special, because I got to play guitar on the first track, while my lovely wife Hannah contributes the backing vocals on both tunes. Like everything Allen has made, these songs are excellent, and you should pay for them as many times as you can.

Apple took the covers off of this section of their iPad site today, and it’s a stunner. Apple’s marketing has always been most successful when they just showed off the way people use the products. It’s great to see this site, especially when the “other guys” are so focused on specs and accessories.
