Issue #15

Editor’s Note

Not much to say this week. I’ve been busy preparing for a couple talks at RubyTeach next week in Vancouver. Hope that when I get back I can focus on the apps I have. I have two new ones to push to the app store and a third that has updates to go out. They’re 99% ready (or 100% if I kill something I was trying to add). I’m still interested in masterminding, I’ll bring that up again next week, just want to plant that seed.

Serious pixel overload. Details matter.

My Sales from Two Dollar Tuesday
