- Nintendo’s stock (PINK:NTDOY) is at a 10-year low, with a market cap now at only $13B (less than 10% of Apple’s available cash)
- USD is at a 2-year high as compared to the Japanese Yen.
- Nintendo lacks product innovation, but creates great games and characters. Apple has no track record with successful games, but 300M+ people use Apple devices.
- AppleTV has no game functionality built-in, and the graphical simplicity of Nintendo games would likely allow them to run on existing AppleTV hardware. Wii Sports and other family games would be a perfect fit for the AppleTV.
- Nintendo designs great controllers, and Apple knows that gaming on touch screens will always have limitation. Imagine using a WiiMote with your Apple TV or iPhone?
- Apple’s ability to exclusively sell Nintendo games to the ~300M+ active iOS devices would have huge potential, especially if Apple was absorbing 100% of the app sales instead of their usual 30% royalty on game sales.

As demand for our Nutritionix API is starting to grow rapidly, we have been working on finding an API documentation engine to meet our needs for the long-term. I was not able to find any comprehensive list of existing API documentation solutions, so I am compiling what I have found so far. Please leave feedback on your own experience in the comments.
Web API Documentation Tools
We are still exploring each solution, but I will update this post as we learn more about each option.
- Swagger - A specification and complete framework implementation for describing, producing, consuming, and visualizing RESTful web services. [Demo]
- apiary.io - Provides very quick way to get your documentation up and running, includes GitHub integration and I/O validation. – Suggested by Siyfion via Reddit.
- Docco - Docco is a quick-and-dirty, hundred-line-long, literate-programming-style documentation generator. It produces HTML that displays your comments alongside your code.
- Dexy - Flexible documentation tool that supports any language, for any API.
- Doxygen - Generate an on-line documentation browser (in HTML) and/or an off-line reference manual, and you can configure doxygen to extract the code structure from undocumented source files. Seems more technical than the other options, but a powerful option nonetheless. Suggested by gkumar007 via Reddit.
- TurnAPI – Paid service. Intelligent WIKI-editor, markdown based standards, documentation branching, sync with Git, SVN, Mercurial, clean looking themes. [Features]
- Note: As of writing I was unable to create an account at TurnAPI.

iMessage uses data instead of SMS, and therefore works internationally to send free text messages (as long as you have an international data plan).
However, you must TURN OFF “Send As SMS” when you are traveling internationally, otherwise your phone may send an SMS message (green message) using international SMS rates.
Go to Settings >Messages to turn off “SEND As SMS”
Due to the popularity of my old post on how to download firefox without a web browser, I decided to figure out a way to do the same thing with Chrome. Chrome doesn’t seem easily accessible on FTP, so this method allows you to still download Chrome from a safe web source, via the HTTP link that Google provides.
1. Open NotePad and paste the below VBScript code into it.
Note: The strFileURL variable is currently set to the URL that Chrome is at as of today. That might change later. Find latest Chrome EXE by going here. Click accept and install, then right-click copy the URL titled “Click here to retry.”
' This is the URL of the chrome EXE. strFileURL="https://dl.google.com/tag/s/appguid%3D%7B8A69D345-D564-463C-AFF1-A69D9E530F96%7D%26iid%3D%7BA024641A-81C0-533A-53CB-AE9534821219%7D%26lang%3Den%26browser%3D4%26usagestats3D0%26appname%3DGoogle%2520Chrome%26needsadmin%3Dfalse%26installdataindex%3Ddefaultbrowser/update2/installers/ChromeStandaloneSetup.exe" ' This is where the file will download to. strHDLocation = "c:\ChromeStandaloneSetup.exe" ' Fetch the file Set objXMLHTTP = CreateObject("MSXML2.XMLHTTP") objXMLHTTP.open "GET", strFileURL, false objXMLHTTP.send() If objXMLHTTP.Status = 200 Then Set objADOStream = CreateObject("ADODB.Stream") objADOStream.Open objADOStream.Type = 1 'adTypeBinary objADOStream.Write objXMLHTTP.ResponseBody objADOStream.Position = 0 'Set the stream position to the start Set objFSO = Createobject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") If objFSO.Fileexists(strHDLocation) Then objFSO.DeleteFile strHDLocation Set objFSO = Nothing objADOStream.SaveToFile strHDLocation objADOStream.Close Set objADOStream = Nothing End if Set objXMLHTTP = Nothing
2. Save your notepad file to your desktop, and use quotes in the filename to overwrite saving as a .txt file:
3. Go to your Windows command prompt (Start > CMD)
4. Navigate to your desktop in the command prompt (cd desktop)
5. Run the command: cscript.exe downloadfile.vbs
6. Open Windows explorer, and right on your C drive you should see the chrome installer at c:\ChromeStandaloneSetup.exe
