man this ipad memo stuff is wearing thin. Even that link he posted, the guy finished the book on a Mac. Yes you can do bits of creation of the iPad. But Macs are way better at most of it. And that should be OK. iBooks: on iPad. iBooks Author: on Mac.

i guess you didnt get the memo

Man that was a lot of words to get across "I think I am worth literally twice as much per year than even John Gruber ever thought he was worth for his RSS feed"

where can i get a mcdonalds quesadilla tho (silby), Thursday, 12 July 2012 03:36 (seven years ago) link

NB Gruber now easily makes six figures across his various channels, seems to have no qualms about it.

I’ve long suspected that Mayer preferred the iPhone to Android as a user. She was into Instagram while it was iPhone-only. She’s sent multiple tweets — September 2011, June of this year — using Twitter for iPhone. And her husband just tweeted that he’s switching to the iPhone from BlackBerry.I’ve long suspected that Mayer preferred the iPhone to Android as a user.

It's a blog not just about Apple, but about excellence.

His voice can be muscular and rigorous.

But he maybe best understands excellence as it relates to blogging.

he can still better articulate what's fun and compelling about link-sharing (which he's been doing since before we deemed it curation) than anyone

Apple, Gruber's Beatrice, is engorged as a company

He hasn't written, for a long time, an engaging description of a laptop or an account of an anthropomorphized interface element.

It is a testament, still, to the power and potential of writing on the web, to the blogger as auteur

That guy in the atlantic twice describes it as gray-green. Are all my monitors fucked? I see no green!

he compares john gruber to dante. i think we can safely say it's him, not you.

Gruber is just the most middlebrow piece of shit.

"Pffft" --buddha (silby), Monday, 10 September 2012 23:16 (seven years ago) link

i wrote him a "not angry just disappointed" email about how utterly useless he's become, but he didn't reply.

caek, Tuesday, 11 September 2012 14:00 (seven years ago) link

really? lol. can we see?

stet, Tuesday, 11 September 2012 14:37 (seven years ago) link

according to that bloomberg piece, he's making $500,000 a year off daring fireball now. shit.

kudos tbf

yeah, it's impressive how he's managed to turn journalism's economics on its head - do nyt columnist even earn that much? - although it's pretty obvious he's a one-off for all sorts of reasons that don't have much to do with his writing.

I hope you'll accept this unsolicited criticism in the spirit that it's intended:

Linking to Gizmodo comments is like pointing at someone taking a shit on the sidewalk.[*]

It's your site, and you certainly owe me, an Adblock-running reader, nothing. But you used to do better than this.

[*] zing i think i may have started to overuse, and have certainly used before on ilx

caek, Tuesday, 11 September 2012 16:24 (seven years ago) link

Dear Caek,

Thank you for your thoughtful letter. I unfortunately was unable to read it due to my eyes being all clogged up with tons of money.

Yours,
Gruber
