Gruber: Bond’s gadgets have always been at the intersection of utility and elegance. Serve a necessary purpose, reliably, and look good doing it. That’s as good a motto for a software company as any.

yes gruber, you are comparable to bond

fucking james bond

hoping it gets a feature that lets you wedgie gruber's underpants over his head

I don't understand the hate for this dude but likewise don't understand how he can be the number one apple blogger.
What do you guys think about kottke.org? He seems like he's in a similar group of commenter dudes who also make fonts on the side.

Philip Nunez, Thursday, 6 June 2013 21:43 (six years ago) link

Gruber is sanctimonious. Kottke just likes linking to neat things and keeps the rest to himself, IME.

Loool at getting linked to by Marco as "resentful" for saying sync is critical when he, eh, says sync is critical. Balls.

@gruber 8h
Hacker News hasn’t had a single link to Daring Fireball in months, so I presume DF is blacklisted. But why Vesper?

the Quim of Bendigo (Autumn Almanac), Friday, 7 June 2013 02:18 (six years ago) link

maybe hacker news just thinks you're a nutsack

it's pretty debatable whether or not "export" is a "power user feature"

markers, Friday, 7 June 2013 19:46 (six years ago) link

Vesper’s current lack of sync, export, etc. isn’t an oversight; it’s an intentional omission at this time.

hah no matter how hard any of them try they just cant bring themselves to justify it

how is "iPad" a "power user feature"

I am in no way suggesting that summoning Cthulhu to rise out of San Francisco Bay and massacre all of Silicon Valley would be a good thing, but I wouldn't do anything to stop it either.

We have a different name because we make a different sandwich. A true Philly hoagie is so much better than a “sub”, it’s not even funny. We’re famous for the cheesesteak, but the Philly hoagie is just as great. (Sarcone’s is the best; Primo’s are excellent too.)

i hate this guy.

He quoted all of marco's "balls" post

stet, Saturday, 8 June 2013 00:22 (six years ago) link

have we mentioned that he calls himself the "director" of the app?

we're up all night to get (s1ocki), Sunday, 9 June 2013 17:49 (six years ago) link

So basically Grubes acted like a demanding, irascible client with very specific requirements about the design. Wonder if he paid them their hourly rate during development or if everyone was just in it for equity.

Operation Gypsy Dildo (silby), Sunday, 9 June 2013 17:56 (six years ago) link

taking six months to dev this thing absolutely suggests that an asshole director demanding meaningless iterations. Clients like Gruber are fucking horrible.

If you pretend to yourself that Arment hates those dudes' guts, his post about Vesper still makes sense
