  • Tits and Apps – About most of the 'sexy' iPhone apps being pulled last weekend: "What developers see is that the App Store is a shaky foundation upon which to build a business. One day you’re prospering, the next day your app is gone. There are awesome iPhone OS apps that aren’t being built because developers don’t trust Apple not to yank the carpet out from underneath them."
  • Infer.NET – Seen at the BCS/IET Turing Lecture by Chris Bishop. Looks interesting.
  • Sources offer peek at Adobe Creative Suite 5 for Mac – PhotoShop CS5: what do you do to the app that has everything? Not a lot, visually at least…

  • Senior City-zens: The World's 10 Oldest Still-Inhabited Cities – "I grew up in Europe, where the history comes from." Maybe Eddie Izzard should have gone with "I was born in the middle east, where the really old history comes from."
  • Maker's Schedule, Manager's Schedule – If you can't actually avoid meetings, then at least try to schedule them so you can maximise your productivity. Rings true…
  • There’s a pretty significant problem in the new… – I'm starting to expect Graham Chapman to burst in at any second and announce that this is getting far too silly. Apparently any iPhone app that allows "unfiltered internet access," everything from web browsers to Twitter clients to, presumably, delicious.com clients, now requires a 17+ rating.

  • The giant Apollo 11 post – The best of the web on the 40th anniversary of the moon landing.
  • Year two – Nice analysis of where the App Store need to change in order to keep both customers and developers happy.
  • Let's all take a deep breath and get some perspective – "[Google are] starting to look like the new Scott McNealy. Remember him? Ran a company called Sun, which had a great little business going until McNealy became obsessed with Gates and started doing things like paying millions of dollars to buy StarOffice so he could get into that booming free software business."

  • Evolution Test – I just don't get it. Is evolution really that hard? How can you misunderstand it so badly that you can come up with this list of questions and think it proves… well, anything? (Part of me hates to single out this site as there are dozens, if not hundreds, of similar ones.)
  • Crash Could Free Up Wall Street's Grip on Bright Young Minds – "But the big paychecks came with what economists call opportunity costs. Instead of spending their days searching for exotic trades, some of these Wall Street wizards could've been creating drugs, imagining software, or solving energy problems."
  • The Norway Lesson: The Benefits of Good Financial Behavior – "Norway made it a point to budget, to save, and to protect against unnecessary risk. Then, it went on to buy when everyone else was selling." Any other country would have spent all earnings from oil on tax cuts (that's what happened with North Sea Gas in the UK), but Norway did the smart thing.
