Masked Prey: good

In the early afternoon I finished Masked Prey, the 30th Prey novel by John Sandford. While not as good as the previous book; Neon Prey, which was excellent, it was still a good read. Recommended.

The iPad Magic Keyboard

Once I let go of my preconceptions, I fell in love. This took all of 15 minutes. I went from that “I don’t like the way this thing feels at all” first impression to “I can’t wait to start raving about how great this thing is” in 15 minutes. The iPad Magic Keyboard is to iPad-as-laptop accessories what AirPods were to earbuds: a game changer.

On a web site, but maybe even an API, there might be cases when you would like to display only part of a value. For example you might want to display the last 4 digits of a credit card number. Or the first 4 letters of an e-mail address.
