I’m only 4 hours in and already I’m addicted to The Banner Saga. The viking-based RPG not only looks like a playable Disney movie, but it’s decision based gameplay actually matters in a game for once.
If you’re a fan of RPGs, incredible viking folklore, beautiful 2D artwork, and an unpredictable story (so far from my experience) then look no further.
We simplify the process of managing medications through a combination of convenient packaging, modern technology, and personalized service.
Not only is their site beautiful, but the product itself seems wonderful. Not long ago I was complaining about companies no longer designing products that serve a purpose and help people - PillPack is the first to impress me in a while.
I’ve been using Grunt for so long (even though it’s still relatively new) that I never thought a solid competitor that could potentially take it’s place would pop up. This is where Gulp comes in. I haven’t had a chance to test it out on any real-world projects, but a handful of Node developers are apparently swearing by it - see here.
Check out Gulp - and let me know if you too think it’s a Grunt show-stopper.
A community-driven framework for managing your zsh configuration. Includes 120+ optional plugins (rails, git, OSX, hub, capistrano, brew, ant, macports, etc), over 120 themes to spice up your morning, and an auto-update tool so that makes it easy to keep up with the latest updates from the community.
After recently deep-diving into iTerm while working with GitHub (yes, I’ve finally broken free from the clutches of the Mac app) I was recommended this incredible library for zsh. Highly recommended.
Google has just purchased Nest Labs, the maker of the Nest Learning Thermostat and Protect smoke detector, for $3.2 billion in cash. According to a Google press release, Nest will continue to operate independently.
To some this might seem like a big headline, but frankly I couldn’t care less. Regardless if Google will muck it up or not, the Nest products are still ridiculous. I mean think about it - why are some of the best designers and developers building smoke alarms? Do we not have more important problems to solve?
There was a time when I thought Google was focused on helping shape a better world; now I’m not so sure.
