Ulysses vs. Scrivener

In a brief Reddit discussion, users of both writing apps ding Ulysses for relying on Markdown for formatting, while Scrivener uses rich text. That surprises me. I find Markdown quite natural, which goes a long way to explaining why I … Continue reading

Hikers find a 22-year-old woman who’d been lying face-down in the mud after a tragic accident the day before

An inspiring and tragic story. This happened at least two years ago.

One particularly chilling note: The hikers initially found the girl when they were taking snaps of each other. You can see the happy hikers in the foreground, unaware that there’s a critically injured young woman in the background. The hikers only found her because she had dyed her hair bright red.

It reminds me of the story I linked to a short time ago about the [family dog that mauled and killed a newborn baby](http://mitchwagner.com/2016/04/28/dog-euthanized-after-fatally-biting-baby/).

The people involved made stupid mistakes, and paid an unjust price.

When I read about these incidents, I don’t feel superior, or any animosity toward the victims. I think “there but for the grace of God.” Because I do stupid, dangerous things too. Don’t you? Continue reading

Apple’s Reddit screwup

Apple removed third-party Reddit clients from the App Store because people can use them to access porn.

Ridiculous. You can do the same with any web browser. Is Apple going to remove Chrome from the App Store next? How about its own Safari browser? How about Apple Maps, which you can use to guide you to an adult bookstore?

Also, Apple continues to permit the Reddit official app in the App Store, which looks bad for Reddit, although it seems likely that Reddit had nothing to do with these shenanigans. Continue reading
