My Favorite Books Of 2012
Heng-Cheong Leong, MyAppleMenu
I've enjoyed quite a few books in the past year, and here are a few of my favorites. Hopefully, this simple list can inspire you to some great reads in the coming year.
1. The Sense of an Ending, by Julian Barnes
2. Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, by Susanna Clarke
3. The Night Circus, by Erin Morgenstern
4. Small Change (Farthing, Ha'penny, and Half a Crown), by Jo Walton
5. You're Lucky You're Funny: How Life Becomes a Sitcom, by Phil Rosenthal
Jason Brenan, Speed Of Light
It’s not helpful to beginners because it makes them feel stupid and it gives off an elitist vibe from the author. It’s also not helpful for experienced developers, who are confident in their skills but who could use some updating in their habits, because the inflammatory style is used in stead of providing actual reasoning of why these sins are something to be avoided.
Susie Ochs, Mac Life
Steven Sande, TUAW
A new iPhone 5 ad has just shown up on YouTube. "Dream," oddly enough, highlights the one feature of the iPhone 5 that wasn't working properly this morning -- Do Not Disturb.
Matthew Panzarino, The Next Web
Alfred Thompson, Computer Science Teacher
