A little thing about release notes — Several People Are Typing — The Official Slack Blog — Medium

As long as there’s been software to update, people have been writing notes to tell you what’s gone into those updates. For the most part the readership was small — mostly IT managers — and the notes perfunctory. Today, though, everyone has a tiny computer in their pockets, and everyone is responsible for maintaining and updating their own software.

34,000 IPH — MacSparky

Today was Apple’s earning’s call. There was lots of interesting information and again Apple earned enough money to fill a super-tanker with $1,000 bills. The most interesting stat I heard was that last quarter Apple sold 34,000 iPhones per hour (IPH). Every hour. 34,000.

I had never thought much about Apple’s IPH number but 34,000 is crazy. That means they’ve got to build, ship, sell, and activate 816,000 iPhones a day. Has manufacturing somethings as complicated as an iPhone on this scale ever been done? Congratulations Apple on this amazing accomplishment.

But there would still be secret features, like holding down option and command when clicking in PageMaker to zoom to actual size.
