⇾ Subscription or no subscription? That is not the question. (Oliver Reichenstein, iA)

I am using iA Writer on all my devices since ages already. Actually, this text is also written in iA Writer. I love the app and even bought it for devices I am not using. I don’t know, how you sometimes think, but I often buy multiple licenses or licenses for devices I really don’t use regularly, just to support people I know or people where I think they are simply doing great stuff for a fair price. For me this post was a good read (attention, long post), as it gave some insight into how iA is thinking, concerning subscription or not and pricing models. I am always curious about stuff like this. But, why don’t you have a look yourself? ;) …

⇾ Online Micro-Book: Why Do We Interface?

Ehsan Noursalehi has written this online micro-book after he gave a talk about the topic and due to the Covid-19 lockdown and having time to write it. He says:

In this micro-book I take a historical look at interfaces to build an understanding of how they allow us to utilize information in such powerful ways that they can fundamentally change what it means to be human.

⇾ How I Structure My CSS (for Now) – Matthias Ott

In this post, I will share my current take on CSS structure. It does not religiously follow any particular methodology, although people familiar with Harry Roberts’ ITCSS (“Inverted Triangle CSS”) will definitely recognize parts of his methodology.

Matthias Ott describes his way of – for now – structuring his CSS. Maybe some inspiration for the one or other.

Latest Firefox with Enhanced Tracking Protecion

Isn’t ist spooky sometimes, that you search for a certain asset and in the next moment the next shopping site you visit suggests you to buy something like this? Well, nowadays is it less spooky, but annoying.

I like, that Mozilla makes this a default in their latest Firefox release to block tracking by default. Reason for this enhancement is, that, since the introduction of ETP, the ad industry found different ways to track users. Passing you through the tracker’s site before landing on your targeted website enables them to see where you came from and where you are going.

And this is what Firefox does now:

With ETP 2.0, Firefox users will now be protected against these methods as it checks to see if cookies and site data from those trackers need to be deleted every day. ETP 2.0 stops known trackers from having access to your information, even those with which you may have inadvertently visited. ETP 2.0 clears cookies and site data from tracking sites every 24 hours.

A New Gin Family Member – Thanks Rodney

The photo showing a glas with red gin and tonic in a glas with ice cubes and wild berries. In the back a bottle of the gin.

This is just lovely: the door bell. DHL delivers a package. What did I order again and have forgotten about? Did I? No! It is a lovely little surprise by Rodney. A gin I don’t call a family member yet. Infused with wild berry.

Sounds interesting and I just tested it with Thomas Henry tonic, a hand full of wild berries – just right for the summer.

Thanks soo much, Rodney, for thinking of me and bringing a smile to my face with this!
