This. Absolutely this. A thousand times over, this.
Usually $15, but only $8 today at MacZOT.
A Mac blogging client designed just for Tumblr. Insta-buy.
Well ok not insta—I tried it out and drafted this post with it. But it’s great to see more native desktop app support for the greatest blogging platform of all time. OF ALL TIME.
Socialite is a good “put all your social stuff in one box” app. It’s even standing strong in terms of integrating well with each service that it uses, instead of stumbling into the pit of “does many things, none of them well” despair.
But I wish I could put more stuff in my Socialite box:

Chris Clark uses a couple of anecdotes to nail one of the most difficult challenges that constantly pulls at the heart of design. It’s obnoxious when software developers and designers duck this question by adding buttons and sliders and windows and doodads for every single feature they can think of. This cowardice is woven into the very cultural fabric of way too many Windows software shops because they have been scared into believing that they have to please everyone. They don’t.
But when developers and designers hit the bullseye, software “just works” like a skilled orchestra that’s played together for years. It’s harmonious and a joy to experience.

10/GUI is probably one of the most dramatic reimaginations of the desktop user interface I’ve seen in a long time.
Agreed. The first 4 minutes set up some very useful summaries of computer usage theory and practice. But if you’re the ADD type or just short on time, skip to about 4:45 to see 10/GUI in action.
