It’s like Square, except it’s a triangle.
We started Milk Inc. (the company behind Oink) to rapidly build and test out new ideas. Oink was our first test and, in preparing to move onto the next project, we’ve decided to shut it down to help focus our efforts.
At first it seemed like a great idea, then it became too much work. They didn’t fail as a company and aren’t forcing a square peg through a round hole.
You can download your Oink content by March 31 here.

Okay here we go. I wonder what happens when I say the word. If you can write the word. And out the punctuation mark. Apparently I don’t know how to say the word. There’s no editing in this post is completely done by voice dictation. There is as it seems no way to say the word. Without getting the punctuation mark. Maybe I’m unsure of how to do this maybe there something else I’m missing but for some reason I cannot say the word. Okay so the rest of the post well I imagine if I say the word, or parentheses or something else it will show up funky. I figured MIs will give us a shot as I haven’t seen is done anywhere before so I fired up the word press application on my iPhone and just begin speaking. So far seems to be going pretty well I pause in between a few times to see how it looks but I have not added a single thing. That’s all for now – I’m in a trying use a little bit later and see how works. I don’t think the Redig grammar Nazis are you like this one.
Today Apple introduced a beta version of Messages – the desktop counterpart to messages on iOS devices. It’s a preview of what’s to come in Mountain Lion and exactly what I’ve wanted for quite some time.
My iMessages are now everywhere: on my iPhone, my Mac, and my iPad. However, there’s one issue: syncing isn’t clearly explained and can be confusing.
This morning, after downloading Messages beta, I tried adding my account and received this error: Unable to verify “…@me.com” because it is already in use by another Apple ID. Simple fix: the email address is associated with another Apple ID. I have several Apple IDs and it’s a pain to manage each and every one – time to consolidate. The easiest thing to do is to remove alternate email addresses for the Apple IDs by logging in here: https://appleid.apple.com/ – once removed you’ll be able to add that email to the Apple ID that you want to use.
Now on to the main course: syncing all messages across all devices.
Here’s how to sync all of your messages:
iOS Devices (iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad):
In a nutshell: everything needs to be consistent. Use the same Apple ID everywhere and an email address as a caller id for best results.
If you want messages sent to your phone number to show up on your Mac, you’ll have to wait until the fall when iOS6 is released.

From the PostageApp blog:
After relaying millions of emails for our customers we are now taking the next step: PostageApp is now an end-to-end email delivery engine.
Not only can you offload the chore of sending email and making sure things deliver while monitoring the status, but now you can forget about maintaining an email server entirely and let the pigeon rocket do the work for you.
I’ve been using PostageApp for over a year in all of my projects. It takes less than a few minutes to get up and running and I never have to think about email again.
