Just found out that I lost a bunch of notebooks that I madewithpaper when I updated my iPad mini to the iOS 8 GM. Super upset about it, but choosing to view it as an opportunity to start over on those projects / thoughts.
Related: the new Paper update for iOS 8 is really awesome.
iPhone 6, 64GB, space gray
the iPhone 6 has an understated elegance. the 5s screamed of luxury, but the 6’s rounded edges smoothly fall into place with the rest of the world.
John Gruber sums it up in his review:
Apple is liveblogging their own event today
In short: the increased size of the iPhone 6 makes it worse when using it one-handed. But it makes it better when using it two-handed.
This is gonna be awesome. 1PM EST.

Feels a little 1984 newspeak to me.
"Apple Plans to Announce Wearable in September," which is the only thing that makes sense
John Paczkowski writing for Re/Code:
Apple now plans to unveil a new wearable alongside the two next-generation iPhones we told you the company will debut on September 9. […] The new device will, predictably, make good use of Apple’s HealthKit health and fitness platform.
If the iWearable is going to be as tightly integrated into iOS 8 as we’ve been lead to believe, why would they not release the two at the same time? What’s the point of having an event for one thing that works best when used with another thing? That’s not a very Apple move.
Apple releasing (or at least announcing) their wearable alongside the next iPhone is the only move that makes sense.
