This deal with Aetna and Apple is significant. Subsidized Apple Watches is a bold move. I wonder how soon until we see people taking advantage of this?
This is so spot on. Someone please ask a question like this during the debates. Everyone claims they’re going to repair our economy, and yet, none of them ever talk seriously about the role of tech in both advancing and displacing economies around the world.
This. Please. Yes, this.
I love Gruber’s take here, as he rebuts Manjoo’s belief that Apple design has gone stale. It’s actually shocking to me how many people mistake design as aesthetics only, rather than a combination of look, feel, and function. This is, perhaps, a good indicator for why so much much tech – software and hardware combined – is so often ridiculously clunky and unfriendly to everyday users.
And for reals, how can you not look at that jet black iPhone 7 and see a strikingly beautiful phone?
All the shallow gameplay that exists right now, all those seconds spent drilling into giant rocks with lasers and not having enough room to carry things, wouldn't even matter if I had a companion to do it with.
Best review ever of No Man's Sky. There has been no indication from Hello Games about whether they will pursue this, but I agree, user interaction and content is all this game needs to be truly great.
I love that the tech blog mentions the UX design considerations up front. The Netflix tech blog is always great reading.
There's some good economic forecasting here, generally speaking, but the real gold in this is the slideshow attached at the end. No one knows what will happen, but this article and slideshow do a pretty good job of collecting what we do know and making several possible educated predictions accordingly.
So much incredible info in this article. I've now also followed @NASAJuno.

This is actually great and surprising news. Installing the app as I type this up.
Another great piece of writing from J.D. Vance. He’s really on the pulse of what frustrated white working-class people are feeling and thinking. This rings so true for me both as a believer and a guy with lots of frustrated church folk friends:
A Christianity constantly looking for political answers to moral and spiritual problems gives believers an excuse to blame other people when they should be looking in the mirror.
We really do need honest self-reflection and criticism in the church today. I appreciate Vance’s bravery to call it out. Hopefully, more of us can find that courage and strength.
