I’ll keep it simple. Two things I love about the lock screen — the fact that I can choose which notification to open when alerted and the fact that it’s not cluttered with useless information.
Two things I don’t like about the lock screen — the double-click of the home button to interact with the music player and the fact that a notification will be opened directly when unlocking the device within a certain amount of time, after receiving such notification.

If Microsoft decide to operate an app store of sorts on the XBO, it could be a winner all-around, provided that they launch the console well before the Apple TV. Otherwise, they will be on the losing side.
Surprising that they haven’t mentioned this explicitly since it could be a boon for them.
The back of the Xbox One closely resembles the back of the original PS2; more specifically, the array of ports.
I’ve been using NewsBlur for the past year or so and I’m itching to see some kind of integration with Reeder but with the differences in how NewsBlur and Google Reader works at the API level, this will probably never happen.
One of Clay’s innovations was to add a discovery algorithm that let users “train” their readers to surface stories of interest and buy the boring ones
I don’t know if I want to be train my reader to “buy” boring stories.
They follow their own beat and couldn’t care less about their competitors to a degree. It is not a risky move.
I honestly think that Apple has plans in place to introduce significant changes to the App Store model at WWDC. This will allow them to clean up the App Store by introducing the ability to trial an app and as mentioned above, pay to upgrade. No more “lite” apps or specific versions that confuses the average customer.
The recent removal of certain apps that allows one to peruse applications as a sponsored recommendation lends credence to this. Obviously, the removal of such apps were due to artificially boosting an app’s popularity in the App Store. However, one can’t ignore the additional reasonings in doing so prior to changing the way the App Store operates on a per-app basis.
Apple are all about simplicity and making major changes over time. The concept of IAP had to be featured first before the so-called changes to be introduced for this year’s WWDC.
