Been a slow week as I’ve been preparing a couple projects on the side and doing a lot of reading outside of the realm of this blog at this point.
This article is amazing. I honestly have never looked into manufacturing until this week. But this article makes me more stunned by Apple’s whole process than ever before.
Anything that can move us away from the culture of smartphones on the table would be great. From early reports of Apple Watch users, they are seldom pulling their phone from their pockets.
This is how you respond to religious atheists threatening you with lawsuits.
Easily the must-have Apple Watch accessory.
Don’t you love when people speak on topics they don’t understand? Rapper Will.i.am says that all religion will need to change because we will soon be printing entire human beings.
Sorry readers, the end of last week didn’t go as planned and the weekend was crazy because of it. So instead of my Top 5 going up Saturday afternoon, like normal, it is going up now. My apologies.
A very well-worded article on the history of sexuality and Christianity and why it is to this day one of the most rigidly held elements of our faith.
Is Facebook stifling your prayer life?
Hilarious short animation that answers something I’ve speculated for quite some time.
I’ve fallen in love with the Art of Manliness. If you’re a man and don’t know about the site, watch this interview and then follow their blog!
With Apple’s new patent, I might never make it home to see the family.
This week was a much slower week for news and blogging than last week. The reason for that has been that I’ve been on vacation in southern Illinois, where I grew up, with my wife and daughter. We left Chicago area on Wednesday morning and are heading back on Sunday.
Even with time off, I have been writing. On Monday I published my article on Net Neutrality and Friday I published my article on ISIS, War, Prophecy, and Ignorance. I had intended to write a review on the new Red album, but that went by the wayside for family time. The album is great and a review is coming early next week.
And as is the tradition, here are my top 5 links of the week.
Great to see this article trend this week. Feeding your infants peanuts makes them far less likely to develop peanut allergies.
On Tuesday the new Pebble smart watch was announced via Kickstarter. Thus far they’ve made $11 million. But the design is, in my opinion, atrocious. It is functional, but nothing like the Apple Watch when it comes to design.
One of my favorite development shops launches a new website and promises to be more transparent and consistent in releases.
Here comes the Apple Watch!
Everyone’s favorite Vulcan, Leonard Nimoy, has passed away.
This week was a good week for Finley.im. Not only did the site cross into the 80+ post realm, but a lot of this week was featured articles. Of the prior weeks I’ve posted 1 or 2 featured article along with 15-20 links. This week, 6 featured articles, including my first game review, first album review, first tutorial, and an article on Writer’s Block. Let’s say that I’ve started to write my way out of writer’s block.
I will be publishing my take on net neutrality next week, but Stu makes some excellent points here on why it won’t make the Internet better.
Been following Dustin for a while and this is a great piece looking at the auto industry, the computer industry, and where we’re going over the next few years.
So much awesomeness here. This article shook the Internet this week with how open it was about Apple and Jony Ive, as well as tidbits about his relationship with Steve Jobs.
50 Shades of Grey is not about romance, but abuse. There is nothing sexual about beating a woman. It is purely psychological. As in, they need professional help, not a woman that will save them.
I love Tapbots. Love. So them updating Calcbot has brought it back to my home screen, sharing space with Tweetbot of course.
So that’s the week. Next week I’ll be publishing articles on ISIS and Net Neutrality as well as a full review of Red’s new album that will be out on Tuesday. Thanks for reading!
Ending Finley.im’s third week since relaunch, the site has almost crossed 70 posts. Feature articles on music Red — of, Beauty and Rage, and culture, A Case of New Tolerance and Ignorance, were published this week and next week I’ll be posting my first game review. By and large, the posts on Finley.im are links, though. Once a week I’ll do a link roundup called 5 Top Links of the Week. So here are your Top Links!
Absolutely stunning game coming from Snowman. Beautiful landscapes and lighting, simple yet addictive gameplay. Full review coming later this week!
Amazing points on how radically sex has been changed since the sexual revolution and how Christians can recover sex.
Some of the best news comic book fans have gotten in a while. Spider-Man will be swinging into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, hanging with Iron Man and Captain America in Civil War!
It’s crazy what the engineers at Flipboard did to achieve 60 fps on mobile. Unfortunately it shows how poor HTML and CSS are for these kind of apps.
The death of TUAW hurt. But the writers from TUAW started a new site called Apple World Today.
In an age where Comcast changes the names of customers to Super Bitch and Asshole, a police officer that goes the extra mile to deliver a pizza is amazing.
Do you know how the government calculates unemployment? Read this for more information and see why real unemployment is over 10%.
Baby is born with Down Syndrome. What Mom does next will stun you. What Dad does is amazing. Is that how you write link bait?
I want this. So bad. Use your iPhone to automatically tune your guitar.
Do you know what the book 50 Shades of Grey is about? Don’t ignore the effect on society of this overly popular book.
As you can see one week in, I will be sharing quite a few links here. These are my favorites for the week.
Super Bowl is coming this weekend and that means ad time. Budweiser does a great job at playing the heartstrings with puppies and Clydesdales.
I love when you see a blog that leans left post something that leans very far right. GeekDad went full tirade against helicopter parenting, the current trend in communities to report the parents of kids playing alone to the authorities, and the authorities to take legal action against those parents. The horror!
We lost the great design studio Teehan + Lax, whiched caused a lot of talk in the community that design studios were becoming a thing of the past. Ben Cline comes in the set us straight.
Normally the uproar about Go Daddy at Super Bowl is the amazing objectifying of women they are capable of. This year? Puppies and demands that they retract their multi-million dollar ad and apologize. And they did just that. I.N.F.O for Families checks our priorities.
Great history on the watch and batteries. Did you know the first pocket watch didn’t have a second hand? Or that they were so bad at keeping time that they’d be off my hours? Great read!
Well, all, have a very Super Bowl and I’ll see you back here on Monday!
