I really like Adobe Dreamweaver (though I keep meaning to give Coda another try) but even I have to admit that a lot of the time it’s more muscle than I need. Oh, and it’s cost prohibitive for many. So I like the idea of Adobe creating a light weight program that just gets the job done. I think Brackets is definitely worth checking out.
Hello, friends. It’s been too long. I’m happy to inform you that I’m ready to start publishing new content to How Do It Know. I’m calling it a relaunch since I’m not only resuming writing but I’m doing so using an entirely new WordPress theme. As a result things feel new and fresh, not just switched back on.
My last post prior to this one was on October 15, 2013. The three primary reasons for my hiatus since then were (1) I was searching for a new job, (2) I took a new job that required a cross-country move, and (3) my wife and I have been getting adjusted to our new home. Things are still busy (when won’t they be?) but they’ve settled down considerably.
The focus of How Do It Know will still be on technology (hardware, apps, web services, and the like) and web development (primarily focusing on WordPress). Content will likely be a little less frequent than before, but I aim to maintain the same level of quality.

This reminds me of when Facebook acquired Instagram. You had this smaller, high quality service that lots of people loved. Some (like myself) loved it so much they made it their preferred method of photo sharing. Then the big behemoth waved $1 billion at them and the small guy couldn’t resist.
Now, I don’t know the financial specifics of this deal. But let’s be honest. Media Temple didn’t make this deal to become a better web host. This had to have been a financially motivated decision, plain and simple. I will be very interested to see how their current customers respond to this news long term.
I should state for the record that I have never been a Media Temple customer. I was briefly a GoDaddy customer back in 2007 but left within a month or so.
I’m not sure why it took me so long to get around to making a Pinterest board to collect my favorite iPhone and iPad apps. Follow it to see the apps that are piquing my interest at any given time.
