MacStores notes that Apple released 5 free iOS development books via the iBook store. Whilst it’s not entirely new material, it’s handy to have them available to download to iBooks without having to visit ADC and find a PDF - especially as they’re listed on the iBooks store in ePub format. I’d link to them here, but as it’s not possible to link within iBooks you’ll have to download the app itself and search for ‘Apple Developer Publications’.
Nice move on the part of Apple and a great way to show off iBooks. Bummer about no ability to direct-link as you can with the App Store, however.
The most important gift we received from him was not words, but deeds. He believed in Truth, and had dared to speak up. We all knew that he upset certain powerful people with it. But that was John. He couldn’t have been any other way. If he were here now, I think he would still be shouting the truth. Without the truth, there would be no way to achieve world peace.
On this day, the day he was assassinated, what I remember is the night we both cracked up drinking tea.
They say teenagers laugh at the drop of a hat. Nowadays I see many teenagers sad and angry with each other. John and I were hardly teenagers. But my memory of us is that we were a couple who laughed.” —
I missed seeing this on the anniversary of Lennon’s assassination, but it’s a really beautiful piece.
It’s hard to explain the impact John Lennon’s work has had on my life — especially since I was born two years after his death — but his work and his life had a profound effect on shaping my development as a teenager and beyond.
Zack’s review has me even more excited to see the film. Great work, Z-man!
