2012 Wrap Up
This past year I've had a bit of a renewed focus on posting my thoughts on this blog. I appreciate those of you who visit and enjoy by what I decide to post and link to.
I thought I'd post a bit of a recap with links to some of my favourite things I've posted over the past year.
The Podcast permalink
I relaunched the Too Lazy to Blog podcast as a sort of audio commentary for this blog. It has been reasonably well received/downloaded and I’ve had fun doing it so I think I’ll continue it in 2013. Having a weekly random guest keeps it interesting and challenging.
On to the Year in Review...
- Shameless Self Promotional Post - I still hate writing these kinds of things and yet I should probably promote myself more if I really want to do this more often.
- Cobook Address Book - The address book on your Mac or iPhone is something you think Apple would own right? Not so much.
- Apple’s Issues in China - Glad to see this turned out to be a mostly non-story.
- NY Times Article on Fighting Featuring Saskatoon - Luckily fighting isn’t an issue right now because the NHL and NHLPA are greedy. At the pro level hockey can’t die fast enough for me.
- The Prize Trailer for Brave - Still haven’t seen it.
- Poverty Comes from Above
- Razzledazzle - You Look Nice Today comes back. It’s been a great bunch of episode this year.
- Paper for the iPad - Great app. Need to steal my wife’s iPad more to play with this one.
- Matt Wiebe Joins Automattic - Big news for an online friend based in Winnipeg.
- The Sleaze of Share, Tweet and + Buttons - Still agree.
- The Apps in My Dock - Just updated this page.
- Fee-Based Podcasts - Still haven’t come. At least on the iTunes podcast listing.
- The Story of Oatway Lake - Proud to have been a part of this video documentary.
- Timer for iOS Available for Free - Still use this app on a regular basis.
- FreshBooks Releases Their iPhone App - I also use this app on a daily basis.
- App.Net Clients - I need to decide on an iOS app to keep up with App.net. I’m still loving Wedge on the Mac.
- Poster iOS WordPress Editor - If I stole my wife’s iPad mini more often I’d buy this app.
- Jay and Dan Podcast - Great podcast that still puts a smile on my face.
- Disney to Acquire Lucasfilm Ltd. - Crazy story.
- Review of the 2013 Ford Flex - Getting the opportunity to write a vehicle review was an interesting experience and one I really enjoyed.
- iTunes 11 is Out - Finally.
- Fantastical for iPhone - Beautiful looking app. Haven’t bought it yet.
- Recording an iPad mini Display for App Reviews - I’m such a nerd but I love this kind of stuff.
So that's the year on my blog. I'd hoped to have written more original material but at the same time it's very much a hobby site for me to post things I find interesting so I'm not too disappointed.
I'm not a huge fan of New Year's Resolutions but I do enjoy using events that mark the passing of time to evaluate what I'm doing and why. But that's for another post to come. Hopefully in 2013.
