“Maybe it’s an effect of living your life online — that you also want these physical things.” —

Tom Nissley, who used to work for Amazon and now owns a small bookstore in Seattle. He’s a part of the movement of small, local shops gaining ground once again even in the face of Amazon.

It’s a slightly better sentiment than “books as art”.

France Bans Checking Email After 6pm — Sort Of, Not Really -

Lucy Mangan:

Under the deal, which affects around 250,000 employees in the technology and consultancy sectors (including the French arms of Google, Facebook, Deloitte and PwC), employees will also have to resist the temptation to look at work-related material on their computers or smartphones – or any other kind of malevolent intrusion into the time they have been nationally mandated to spend on whatever the French call la dolce vita. And companies must ensure that their employees come under no pressure to do so. Thus the spirit of the law – and of France – as well as the letter shall be observed.

While the initial headlines overplayed it, this is still pretty great. And very French. Viva la email resistance!

Mailbox for Mac, Android, and Auto-Swipes -

Team Mailbox:

Today, we’re proud to announce a new service built directly into Mailbox that learns from your swipes and snoozes to automate common actions. Mute that thread you don’t care about, snooze messages from your friends until after work, and route receipts to a list — automatically. We call this service Auto-swipe.

Auto-swipe is something we wanted to release with the first version of Mailbox, but it’s only with recent improvements to our infrastructure that such a smart service has been possible.

This really is something the team has talked about since the beginning. And it’s potentially very powerful — think: Gmail filters re-thought for mobile.

Also, Mailbox and Android is here today. And, perhaps most importantly, Mailbox for Mac is nearly ready for testing. If you’ve ever tried to use the OS X Mail app with Gmail, this will be the best news ever for you. One might call it “a glass of ice water in hell”.

Pretty easy to answer.
