Re: Roasted Vegetable & Quinoa Salad - http://shrinkingkitchen.com/roasted...
"I doubled the recipie for a family function. It was pretty good except there was way too much balsemic for all our tastes. The recipe doesn't say whether to simmer cover or uncovered. You need to cover it or you'll continue to add water (as I did). The recipe also doesn't say it but I presume you toss the tomaotoes into the oven with the chopped vegetables. That's what I did and it worked out." - Dale Dietrich

Best iOS 7 Enhhancement – DYNAMIC TYPE - http://www.daleisphere.com/best-io...
For years iOS has had a ‘system-wide’ font size option that allows you to set a font size of choice. Apps that support it will use the larger font size. Of course virtually no apps ever did support it and my aging eyes have been yearning for the larger screen Android’s out there. I have [...] - Dale Dietrich

"Until I can turn Default Sort back to 'Oldest First', I'm not moving to the new version. In the entire history of web commenting, oldest first is by far the dominant method of commenting. I can't believe that this was elliminated in the upgrade." - Dale Dietrich

Apple’s New ‘Podcasts’ App a Disappointment - http://www.daleisphere.com/apples-...
Years have passed with no significant changes made to the podcast functionality built into the iTunes (now Music) app.  As a daily consumer of podcasts, I had high hopes for Apple’s newly released (June 26, 2012) ‘Podcasts’ app. While some improvements were made – namely the ability to directly subscribe to podcasts from within the [...] - Dale Dietrich

Re: Easily Rotate iPhone 4S Videos with Freemake Video Converter - http://www.daleisphere.com/easily-...
"Locuust176 - depending on the video you choose to convert, and the options, it may very well compress. That doesn't necessarily means it loses (much) quality. The iPhone video is not compressed and can be compressed a LOT before losing quality. This saves space and also makes it much faster to upload to YouTube etc.  But, all that said, I do save/retain the original in a separate folder for future use assuming that one day Microsoft/Apple may fix this." - Dale Dietrich

Re: Easily Rotate Locked iPhone 4 and 4S Photos in Windows 7 with the Free JPEG Lossless Rotator - http://www.daleisphere.com/easily-...
"Did you click on the 'Integrate JPEG Lossless Rotater with the shell' option when installing as I indicated in the photo above - (I circled it in red)? If not, uninstall and re-install it again. If you did, I don't know what else to suggest. It worked fine for me and many others." - Dale Dietrich

Yay, I was eligible for the free 25GB Skydrive upgrade (vs 7GB for new users). To see if you are eligible for the free Skydrive upgrade click here. Because I used Windows Live Mesh in the past (or maybe because I tested out Skydrive in the past, I don’t know), I was eligible for the [...] - Dale Dietrich

Re: How Did We Do? Verizon 2012 Data Breach Findings and Recommendations - http://goodq.disqus.com/thread...
"Terrific article.  Two things I also strongly suggest. Business owners should ensure that their database administrators/web developers hash BOTH the users passwords and their credit card numbers. These are what the bad guys are usually after. It's astonishing how many modern websites/webservices - many originating from the valley, funded by the big Angels & VCs - do not take this basic precaution. Leaving passwords and credit-card numbers in plain text within the site's database is akin to database malpractice." - Dale Dietrich

Re: Tip #1 on Negotiating and Closing Tech Deals - http://www.1goodquestion.com/2012...
"I couldn't agree more with your term sheet advice - especially on the IP ownership issue. Here's a tip for you Stephanie. When you write each of your blog posts, cross post them on Facebook/Twitter/Google plus. I get way more traction from my blogs when I do that. Most people (me included) no longer surf from site to site. I rely on my Twitter, Google Plus and Facebook feeds to turn me on to interesting new content. Heck, I wouldn't even have known your blog existed but for your posting on Facebook. I also suggest that when you do cross-post that you make it clear that you wrote the post you are linking too. I didn't realize that at first when you posted your Pinterest article on Facebook. But, once I knew it was something you wrote, that made me want to go in and read it. good luck with your new blog. If your first posts are any indication, you are off to a terrific start. Oh, and did you make it to the gym on day 7? :)" - Dale Dietrich

Re: The Best Video Game Podcasts - http://www.daleisphere.com/the-bes...
"Thanks Andy. I'll check it out.  [Aug 23, 2011 UPDATE: I have checked it out and I like it. I have added it to my regular podcast list. Thanks Andy.] Sadly, since I last updated this post, Game Theory and The 1Up Show are gone too leaving no really good podcast.  Leo Laporte has been talking about launching a video game podcast on the Twit network for a long time and they've even run a several alpha tests. It's called 'At the Controls' and is hosted by Brian Brushwood, Glen Rubenstein and Tom Merrit. See them on Youtube here: http://www.youtube.com/playlis... But it hasn't launched yet as far as I'm aware. I've downloaded the most recent episode (episode 8) onto my Nexus S and I'll  definitely give it a listen. ...Dale" - Dale Dietrich
