Goodies: January 27, 2015


Josh Ginter wrote a review of the Hobonichi Techo that convinced me to take the time to figure out the Yen to US Dollar conversion and order one for myself. The photography is excellent, especially for a solo blogger.


I just got back into using Plex and it’s awesome. They just released a new version for Android this week, and have new apps for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.


1Password got big updates on iOS and the Mac that make using the apps just a little nicer. They’re free to existing users, so check them out!


Alfred Remote was released just this morning and is a tool that I love, but am still figuring out how I can use it. My early tests with it have been extremely responsive, so I’m intrigued by the potential. Alfred Remote is $4.99 on the App Store.


Are you excited for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt? You should be, and this brand new 15 minute gameplay video shows why. Wow.


Twitterrific got updated to version 5.9 this week and has once again stolen me away from Tweetbot. I am so happy that they added many more media services such as Instagram, Vine, and Twitter’s own GIF support.


And finally, Recode has a first look at Sling TV, Dish’s attempt to get you to cancel your cable subscription. I am looking pretty seriously at this service, and it’s good to hear that it’s actually pretty good.
