5 Years of BirchTree ➝

Matt Birchler:

5 Years of BirchTree is a compilation of 52 pieces I have written between 2012 and today (2010-2011 are still lost to the ages), and I think it represents my best work. The collection includes both technical and non-techy pieces on a whole host of subjects. The marketer in me would say “it has something for everybody!” and he would be right, but the more nerdy you are the more you’ll get out of it (especially the second half which goes full-nerd).

I’ve only been reading Matt’s site for a few months now, but he’s quickly become one of my favorite indie writers. And just based on the titles in 5 Years of BirchTree’s table of contents, there’s plenty of articles that I can’t wait to read.

The eBook is available now in ePub for $4.99 with an iBooks release coming soon. I encourage everyone to purchase 5 Years of BirchTree to help support Matt’s incredible work.

Patrick Rhone is Ending Minimal Mac ➝

Minimal Mac is a site I’ve drawn a great deal of inspiration from over the years and is the reason I ultimately hired Aaron Mahnke to design the site’s logo.

If you’ve enjoyed the site, as I have, I suggest purchasing Minimal Mac: What We Believe In, a compilation of the best posts and quotes from the site’s six year lifespan. It’s available as an eBook on Gumroad or in a print edition from Lulu.com. Patrick has also opened up sales on the Minimal Mac t-shirt which will be available to order until May 20.

Amazon’s Kindle Event ➝

The all new Kindle Paperwhite, the new Kindle Fire, and Kindle Fire HD — looks like an incredibly impressive lineup. If you’re not sure what one to buy, I’d follow Marco Arment’s suggestion and go with a Kindle Paperwhite Wi-Fi with ads.

Of course, that is if you actually want a device like this. I received a Kindle for Christmas four months before the iPad was released. I couldn’t even tell you where my Kindle is right now.
