A great piece on what he views as a disastrous GOP Convention from Matt Taibbi…

If you use Apple Maps and often find yourself in urban areas in search of a place to park… this is pretty cool news right here…
It looks like a third competitor will enter the arena in the iCloud/Dropbox universe… headed by former Senior VP of Software Engineering at Apple Bertrand Serlet… this might get interesting…
A cool read on Bill Fernandez, Apple’s very first employee… a look into the very genesis of the tech behemoth.

I’m totally in to this from an engineering/architectural perspective… it will be a feat for them to pull it off without ever interrupting a baseball season… as far as ever being able to afford to visit the finished space… probably not so much.

Mark Cuban takes a shot at Trump right where he lives.
A visual history of Corvette Logos.

Socrates seemed pretty clear on one sobering point: that “tyranny is probably established out of no other regime than democracy.” An interesting long-form piece by Andrew Sullivan for New York magazine on America as a breeding ground for tyranny.

Some interesting speculation on the coming of iPhone 7…
Ted Williams’ .406 more unreachable than ever… Tony Gwynn, George Brett and others have challenged the 1941 mark, but it’s the last .400 on record.
Perry Farrell contemplates life after 25 years of Lollapalooza.
Taking next week off 😉
