Postman bought my new Leap Motion controller this week. Minutes after installing it (and figuring out I’d placed it on the desktop upside down!) it was up and working. This video is my first few impressions of the orientation application … Continue reading
Update: Word from comiXology now after many hand-wringing updates overnight is that Apple didn’t prevent comiXology from pushing to iOS apps, but comiXology made the call. In a letter on their blog page, comiXology CEO David Steinberger noted: After hearing … Continue reading
