Apple doesn’t give a shit what everyone else is doing. To some, that’s what makes Apple great. To others, it’s what’s wrong with Apple.
"Sorting algorithms are an essential chapter in undergraduate computer science education. Due to their easy to explain nature and fairly straight-forward analysis, this set of algorithms offers a convenient introduction to the methods and techniques of theoretical computer science and algorithm analysis.
"This web page presents my own demo program for sortings algorithms, called "The Sound of Sorting", which both visualizes the algorithms internals and their operations, and generates sound effects from the values being compared. See below for YouTube videos created with the demo…."

This was during my work at office.
After I got home and opened my Mac, a notification popped up telling me that my Hazel trial period was over. Already having made up my mind, I promptly clicked “purchase” button within the notification where I was expecting to be taken to a payment page on a website. Instead a small window opened on the spot with payment choices between PayPayl and credit card. I selected credit card at which point it asked me for a permission to access my contact data so I granted. The next screen was a form with credit card details to fill in with my name and address pre-filled. I just had to enter my number, expiry date and security code then hit “buy”.
Hazel left a confirmation popup telling that the payment was successful, product is all unlocked. Clicked OK and like the app itself, it faded out into the background.
The whole process probably took less than a minute. In fact, it went so smoothly that I’m having a hard time recalling the details of these steps.
I am aware that one is a web based processing with limited information available from system and the other is sitting directly on an OS where it can have direct access to supporting data like contacts or calendar. Regardless, what struck me was the difference in attitude of making a process as easy as possible for users that I perceive from the two implementations. ↩
It is with a heavy heart we announce that Everpix will be shutting down in the coming weeks.
We started this company two years ago with the goals of solving the photo mess and designing better ways for people to enjoy their memories. We are very proud of the work we’ve done—from the cutting-edge…
Bummer. As a happy paid user of the service, I’m very sad to see them shut down.
