Apple spends 500+ millions on games for Arcade

I’m really interested to see where this is going. I use the iPad Pro a lot on a daily basis (not as a laptop replacement, unfortunately) and I’d love to have a good database on console quality games on iOS as well. Several people involved in the project’s development say Apple is spending several million […]

Portugal’s “secret”: Pastel de Nata

In February 2018 I landed in Lisbon. It was my first time in continental Portugal and I wanted to see what everyone was so enthusiastic about. My experience wasn’t the best – though it improved a lot by the end of the year, but I want to talk about something else: Pastel de Nata. I […]

The Last “Live Audience” Show

Around 13-14 years ago while discovering the benefits of p2p communication, I found out a show about cars that wasn’t really about cars. It was called Top Gear, it was in its 4th-5th year or so, and I fell in love with it. After all, who wouldn’t? It was about fast cars and crazy antics […]

Microphone not working in Skype on MacOS

I’ve had some weird issues for the last 2 months or so: I couldn’t use Skype at all. I could hear the person I was talking to, but they couldn’t hear me. The Audio & Video settings in Skype were showing me that the microphone wasn’t working, though it was working in basically all the […]

Favicons in Safari 12 Tabs

Safari 12 just introduced favicons in tabs. I know, I know :) I’ve been using Safari more and more in the last year and I hated the hacks necessary to get the favicons to show. Finally, Apple added them. Here’s how to get them: Safari -> Preferences -> Tabs and check “Show website icons in […]

No Virtual Machine apps in Spotlight search on MacOS

One thing that annoys me on my Mac is the fact that apps from the Virtual Machines I use appear in Spotlight search. The issue appears when I have the same app on multiple operating systems: MacOS and Windows, let’s say. You search for Chrome, hit enter aaaaand… you start opening the Windows 7 virtual […]

Indie Hackers grew to $5,000/month and was acquired in 10 months

I was thinking of ways to generate revenues for content sites the other day. My focus is on interview based sites (for obvious reasons) and I remembered Indie Hackers doing a really good job about it.

Reward Behaviour, Not Milestones

I was reading recently some article or book about getting off your ass and doing shit. And I remember thinking this: Reward each action you take. Or, better said, reward behaviour. It basically means that whenever you choose a target or a goal, you define the actions you need to take to get you there […]

The Price of Success

Scott Adams once wrote: “One of the best pieces of advice I’ve ever heard goes something like this: If you want success, figure out the price, then pay it. It sounds trivial and obvious, but if you unpack the idea it has extraordinary power.” Good quote. From The Psychology of Money.
