Alternatives to Apple’s AirPower

I’m not gonna lie – I was really looking forward to AirPower. I was willing to pay entirely too much for it, because I’m all about wireless charging. As of today, Apple announced they’re cancelling AirPower. Since Apple announced it (all the way back in 2017), I’ve looked into AirPower alternatives, but never made a purchase. Here are the ones that look good to me.

The 2013 Gift Guide for Web People

Here’s a little secret: I love these lists. I love writing them, I love reading them, and I love buying stuff, so I love researching them. Plus, 2013 is a great year for web development and technology. Responsive Design is now in full swing as it’s pretty much standard practice to build a responsive site by default now. Great people like @wilto are pushing the standards fight forward for responsive images, there are great podcasts, and more. Shopping for web people shouldn’t be a difficult task, but I’d like to narrow it down for you. This list isn’t just going to be a list of books, or even a list of computer things.

Android’s Web Based Market

A few weeks ago, the fine folks at Google announced the web based version of their Android Market. Much like the iPhone/iPad App Store in iTunes, the online Android Market let’s you browse from your computer and install apps on your phone. The main difference, and it’s a big one, is there is no sync required. Click install on the web, it gets installed on your phone.

Some other news:  Today is Super Bowl Sunday (go Pack!), as well as Ronald Reagan’s birthday. Also, I worked on a simple Reading List plugin for WordPress this week. You can see it in action on my blog here, though I have made some changes that I will release this week.
