Benedict Evans leads our day with an excellent post about the end of a mobile wave. Basically, we are getting to a mobile saturation point, so growth likely needs to come from someplace other than devices. XKCD gives us some funny with their comic “Message in a Bottle”. As usual, the image hover text is just as funny as the comic itself. Twitter announces the 1.0 release of Pants, the open source build tool. I am not sure what kind of traction this will get given that it focuses on the mono-repo style for project source, but it is interesting to have a tool like this in the wild.

As always, enjoy today’s items, and please participate in the discussions on these sites.
