@gruber Will Apple make another 4-inch iPhone?

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to gruber

@lapcatsoftware I think there may be a way to do local. I use their WebDAV. The sync data can be encrypted with a separate password.

@lapcatsoftware @Zorg__ @galooticus Yeah, I wonder what’s up with the release notes this year. ASCIIwwdc helps a lot, though.

@galooticus @lapcatsoftware Surprised it wasn’t already marked as such, since I think they announced the replacement in June.

@mkummer82 Had not seen that. Thanks. Are you referring to disabling Handoff and AirDrop?
