Yes, Users DO Care About the Tools You Use

It's the first official new episode of Fresh Fusion, and it's a doozy! There's an oft-expressed notion rooted in misguided pragmatism that says your users/customers/audience don't care about the tools you use behind the scenes. They only care about the final product.

Let's dive in!

Whatever The Hell This Is

Greetings, fellow citizens of the internet refuge from the global pandemic! How are you surviving Crisis? I am, to echo the words of Morpheus, STILL HERE!

iPadOS 13.4, Photoshop for iPad, Remote Work, and Staying Home

What a strange and frightening time to be alive! But I'm here and I'm back to try to lighten the mood a bit with talk of the brand-new cursor and trackpad support for iPad in iPadOS 13.4, as well as speculation on how the sudden transition to remote work might change the business landscape for good as we look ahead. I also convey my impressions using Photoshop for iPad now that the new cursor-based input brings the user experience closer to the Mac and even surpasses it in many ways.

Twitter is Like a Decentralized Twitter

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey dropped a bombshell announcement yesterday about the decentralized, open-protocol-based future of Twitter, and The Jared White Show is here to talk about what it means for the "fediverse" (the existing federated social networking world of Mastodon, etc.), why Twitter is even doing this, how Dorsey has never been a clone of Zuckerberg, and much more. This just might be one of the most important episodes of the show to date!
