It's even worse than it appears..
More Succession. People wonder how can they like a show where everyone is ugly. Maybe the answer lies in the fact that the main character of the show isn't human -- it's The Song. Maybe it's just a 4-season-long music video. #
Did you know that you can get Alexa to play the Succession theme song. On the Studio player it's magnificent. Now you can have it be the theme song for your great accomplishments. Get an elegant bit of code running? Fire it up! You're the boss. You did it. #
Newsletter apps have had their moment, now WordPress has one, and wonderfully it has inadvertently plied open the lock-in that Substack imposes, by making everyone use their editor. WordPress has a time-tested API, so I could theoretically write my newsletters in Drummer and push them up to WordPress which would then send them out. #
I asked ChatGPT for a list of popular podcasting clients.#
2009: The only platform that really works is a platform with no platform vendor, and that's the Internet.#
  • I was a skeptic when Apple came out with the iPhone, iPad and the watch and ended up eating my words. I use all three products daily. #
  • When the iPhone came out I was a Blackberry user and loved it. I was angry with Apple for not running Mac software on the phone. #
  • I had reasons for not liking the iPad and watch, but eventually used the iPad even more than the iPhone and I wear the watch every day. #
  • None of them for me were revolutionary products, but they were good products. Worthwhile products. Impossible to resist.#
  • Update: On the other hand, here's my one-month review of the first iPhone. It was not at time, for me, a winner. #

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
