Apple is open for everyone. We are deeply disappointed in Indiana's new law and calling on Arkansas Gov. to veto the similar #HB1228.

@cdixon Another thought on this: feels like "share of market" competition has really become "share of value chain" competition for SaaS s/w.

Check back in a week or two. :) It has a lot of fiber… eek… heh…Phasing out "normal" food on busy days. Instead, @soylent will sustain me... I hope!

Is there any reason to use the word "Abort" in a UI instead of just "Cancel"? Other than making it scary for a user?Lately, New York Times push notifications have essentially become “the ISIS hourly bulletin.”

Hurry up already.@semil Canada's healthcare system is overwhelmed; wait times for MRIs are as long as three months in some provinces. :( Firsthand experience@nedrockson Yeah, you end up accepting or rejecting @linkedin invitations by accident. Whoops. Of course, no sense of how to undo.UI elements with buttons should literally *never* move. @LinkedIn does this all over the place, e.g., rejecting an invite in a dropdown.

This week, @inkling eliminated PDF as a format for all of our content marketing. Now we use… Inkling. :^) Example: http://t.co/Qm1T4F5BwV6/6 “Whole product” companies graze on a diet of value from an assortment of ostensible, but oblivious, competitors. Burp!5/6 What was a strength (multipurpose tool) becomes a weakness (non-specialized tool) for the incumbent.4/6 If a product (e.g., Excel) is general purpose, it will be replaced by many different products, ~1 per major use case (i.e., value chain)3/6 @Anaplan is a fun example. It slices a "business planning" use case across Excel, SAP, Outlook, and others.2/6 As @Cdixon points out, they are neither “tech stacks” nor point solutions. http://t.co/eFUBnFimw21/6 “Whole product” companies integrate long, thin value chains that traverse many tech stacks.
