A Mac app for Homebrew
Not sure who’re the target users for this app as most of those who want to tinker with Homebrew formulas are probably not afraid of learning a few terminal commnads.
Still useful nonetheseless.
Zero knowledge about Ruby, Rails or Linux required.
Tự do ngôn luận
Con trai hỏi bố: - Bố ơi, tự do ngôn luận là gì hả bố?
Bố: - À, là ngay cả 1 thằng ngốc cũng được quyền phát biểu con à.
Con trai: - Vậy không có tự do ngôn luận là sao?
Bố: - Là nơi đó chỉ có những thằng ngốc mới có quyền nói.
Con trai: - ???
Rất đơn giản và dễ hiểu phải không? :)
Elizabeth Smart has the kind of fame no one would want: In the summer of 2002, at the age of 14, she became one of the nation’s most famous kidnap victims when she was abducted from her bedroom in Salt Lake City, where she lived with her devout Mormon family. Smart was raped by him nearly every day, sometimes several times a day. The only other person in their camp was Mitchell’s wife, Wanda Barzee, who treated Smart like her slave
She’s now married, finishing work on her degree at Brigham Young University and the head of the Elizabeth Smart Foundation.
When she was asked about the best advice her mother gave her, she said:
My mom said to me, “Elizabeth, what this man has done to you, it’s terrible, there aren’t words strong enough to describe how wicked and evil he is. He has stolen nine months of your life from you that you will never get back. But the best punishment you could ever give him is to be happy, is to move forward with your life and to do exactly what you want to do. … The best thing you can do is move forward because by feeling sorry for yourself and holding on to what’s happened, that’s only allowing him more power and more control over your life, and he doesn’t deserve another second. So be happy.” … I’m not perfect at following her advice … but I do try to follow it every day.
Matias Quiet Pro black matte case mod
The thing I dislike the most about Matias keyboards is the glossy, fingerprint-magnetted case.
Now, just imagine the Matias Laptop Pro with black matte case. That’s the dream. I would buy that in a heartbeat.

My must-have Cydia tweaks/apps
I thought iOS 7 has spoiled me to the point I don’t think I would need to jailbreak. I mean, there’re now Notification Center and Control Center which is a much better improvement (even though Control Center is not customizable). Turns out I was wrong. A few weeks with Cydia and I have found quite a few awesome apps/tweaks. Here’re some on the top of my must-have list.
Have you ever beem waken up by your phone in the middle of the night and got blinded by how bright the screen was? Show your eyes some love and get this app.
It’s awesome. Text selection is so much easier with this tweak. There’s a Pro version that add several settings which you may like. If you don’t feel like paying,
SwipeSelection is always free. Alternatively, there is
SwipeShiftCaret (free) but you have to swipe on the text edit area instead of swiping on keyboard.
This app allows users to change the font system-wide. I personally in love with
Source Sans Pro font.
Allows user to map many gestures for various different actions, toggles.
Quick compose (with Automator), quick reply, theme, schedules, etc…
Animations are cool (at first). After awhile, it’s more of annoying than cool. I use this app to reduce the delay to 0.6 (default 1.0. 0 is instant) and it feels much more responsive.
I will add when i find more.
Want an ergonomic mechanical keyboard? This is about as good as it gets.
Matias has long been known for its excellent Matias Tactile Pro keyboard line and recently Matias Quiet Pro. I owned a Matias Tactile Pro 4 before and even though I later settled on the Happy Hacking Keyboard Pro 2, I still love the feeling of Matias ALPS switches.
Rather nice and (most importantly) not overpriced like ClickClack keycaps. Just grabbed one myself.
Features vs. Benefits
When you’re trying to win customers, are you listing the attributes of the flower or describing how awesome it is to throw fireballs?
If I wasn’t getting an iPhone 5S, I would definitely buy this phone. It’s a beautiful device and Android is getting so much better since last I tried (Nexus S). Takes Google Now as an example. It is so good, too good that makes Siri look dumb.
