My friend Bradley Chambers has a new project out. $4.99 gets you an hour of screencasts as .mp4 files or wrapped up as an iPad-ready iBook. They’re all well done, and Bradley is a great teacher. If you’ve been Evernote-curious or want to get more out of the app, be sure to check it out.

Matthew Panzarino: Yesterday, during the Google I/O keynote, Google announced that it had hit 48B downloads of apps on the Google Play Store. During the same keynote, the counter on Apple’s site ticked over to 50B App Store downloads. But there has been some question about how exactly the two companies tabulate their numbers. Turns [...]
Impressive, and quite funny that it landed on the day of Google’s keynote.
This weekend, I picked apart a report claiming that big, sweeping changes could be coming to Apple’s service business. One of the big rumored changes is a shift toward Apple repairing more iPhones, as opposed to simply swapping out defective devices. @swgs over on App.net chimed in: The repairs are completed within 30 mins. iPhone [...]

The update promises “stability fixes for Thunderbolt and Target Disk Mode.” Exciting times.
Jim Dalrymple, in an interview at MacStories about his newly-released The Loop Magazine: Apple’s Newsstand is the first time since 1994 that I’ve felt another shift in the publishing industry was upon us, so I jumped at it.

It turns out that it’s not just the hotel that had concerns, but that Apple has a policy of stopping ‘competing’ events in the area,” wrote CocoaConf Alt, Dave Klein. “You know and we know that CocoaConf Alt was not in competition [...]
I had a running list of things to turn in to an article. Instead, I’m linking to this, because Viticci’s knocked it out of the park.
Thomas Brand: Fusion Drive, no one needs your fragile combination of storage technologies anymore. If Apple had really believed in you, they would have made you the default storage system on a Mac, any Mac. Instead you were neglected to a build-to-order-option.
