Hi! Do you remember blogs? Well, this used to be one. Now it just serves as an archive for my multiple Twitter accounts.
I want a single-player RPG where your character — gender, appearance, stats, even sexuality — is randomly forced on you, Rust-style.
Dark Matter has that cheap look traditional to Canadian sci-fi shows which could be fixed in two minutes in After Effects, but other than that it’s… okay.
No. Still no.
And, without it, Apple Music is much less useful.
The Watch made me want a Pebble. Apple Music’s implementation pushes me to try Spotify and Rdio again. I knew Apple was falling, but damn.
Ce début de soleil a l’air super photogénique, mais j’en ai marre de [prendre des photos de] la vue de ma fenêtre.
Updated iTunes, still not sure what headaches enabling “iCloud Music Library” entails (got two Macs with different libraries and playlists).
The value of Google Cardboard clearly stops at checking whether you can spend five minutes in the worst VR possible without barfing, but those five minutes are a lot of fun and, most importantly, I’m really glad to see that my brain can endure and appreciate VR — with my lazy eye, it wasn’t a given.
The Apple Music app is a perfect example of iOS tab bars making a mess of your view hierarchy by limiting the number of top-level choices.
RT @jcenters: I don’t need station identification, Apple. I didn’t stumble upon Beats 1 on an FM dial, I know what I’m listening to.
For some reason when I switch from playlist to radio the ♥️ button becomes ⭐️ and I can’t set the song’s rating anymore. This app is weird.
RT @sethclifford: How many people are hearing this song right now?
Kind of cool to think about the scope of this…
I expected personalized playlists to be longer. You can’t just start playing when you get to work and never think about it again.
Not opposed to email sign-in at all — I do think it’s a good idea, even — just the general angle journalists are using.
“Passwords are over, sign into Medium by email.” Because you access your email account with biometrics.
Setting up Apple Music on my iPhone, it’s asking for my preferences at random instead of just looking at what music is on the device?!
(via a blog post I don’t want to link to because of their idiotic editorializing)
RT @911pizzadad: Oh my god. I just asked Siri what zero divided by zero is and she brought too much realness into my life.
Si j’ai la crève demain ce sera à cause des fontaines d’eau potable de l’Hôtel de ville qui ont assez de pression pour faire karcher.
Le mec qui se fait visiblement un selfie pour Grindr sur la piste de danse, je l’avais encore jamais vie celle-là.
Ces soirs ou je ne sais pas si je ne plais à personne ou si j’ai précédemment fait la gueule à tous les mecs suceptibles d’être intéressés.
Pout une fois qu’on a des gogos qui savent danser, c’est con, au Yoyo il n’y a pas de spots placés pour éclairer la scène.
Tout content de découvrir que mon appel à cotisations sociales était moins élevé que je ne m’y attendais, jusqu’à ce que je me rappelle que le “tri” dans “trimestre” ne veut pas dire qu’il y en a trois dans l’année.
Vu le nombre de taxis occupés qui passent dans la rue, vous avez tous bien vite oublié qui les conduit.
Est-ce qu’on salue quand on croise des twittos qu’on suit sans réciproque ? Moi, je sais que non, évidemment, mais vous ?
RT @sco: I’d love to use the system share sheet in my app, but A/B tests show it substantially reduces sharing.
Si la mairie de Paris filait la place de la République aux établissements gay pour la soirée ça éviterait le bordel dans le Marais #jdcjdr
Satisfactorily quick turnaround.
C’est la saison spéciale du tourisme italien à Paris ? Et pourquoi ils partent tous du principe qu’on (ou que je) doit parler italien ?
Quand tu vois Bastille arriver, que tu te dis “ouf, c’est fini” et que le cortège ne s’arrête pas du tout
RT @wyan: Former Facebook employee who initiated custom gender kicked off site for being trans. It’s a good look. #Facebook #wtf
“Tiens, je vais aller à la Marche en bus pour changer.”
“Suite aux manifestations, ce bus a pour terminus Place d’Italie.”
Y’a toujours des cons de manifestants pour faire chier.
I just might switch to Chrome for the worst possible reason — because Safari takes too long to render Twitter’s un-gifs.
RT @AntonioLulic: “Sushi” actually only refers to the vinegared rice. The rolls with seaweed and raw fish are actually called “Sushi’s Monster”.
Killjoys has a decent Farscape vibe and Luke Macfarlane (overcompensating a bit for B&S) as a cage-fighter in the pilot — so that’s something.
I’d read that it was bad, didn’t imagine it could be that awful.
RT @Campster: And given that the App Store is a serious platform moving millions of dollars that contempt from on high should absolutely be worrisome.
RT @Campster: Censorship or not, the move by Apple is a regressive, overly broad response that reflects their disdain for games as a medium.
It doesn’t seem like Apple to inspect its own catalog for Confederate flags. Wonder if an internet brigade has been mass-reporting them.
Will probably be the same in France when Apple Pay arrives here, and that’s a letdown.
There’s great stuff in there.
Turns out it’s not just the new Tweetbot Mac — both Tweebot for iPhone AND the Twitter site truncate quoted tweets. WHY. GOD. WHY.
I wouldn’t have decided to start making games if I’d realized how much math is involved. That stuff is more annoying than AutoLayout.
(I got it last week on sale, feel so special, and a tiny bit guilty.)
I was quite surprised by how widely negative the reactions were against Apple, so I guess they were too.
Didn’t the Apple Music negotiations stall for years precisely because of the free trial terms? And now, poof, gone in just a few hours.
L’effet social de la MDMA serait dû à une production d’ocytocine. On peut acheter de l’ocytocine en France ? C’est pour un ami ours.
Apple Music won’t even generate lock-in since it’ll be on PC and Android. At most, it’s advertising, but there isn’t gonna be a halo effect.
The whole argument hinges on the idea that Apple intends to get rich with Music, which is absurd — it will only ever be drops in a bucket.
RT @stroughtonsmith: Taylor Swift’s Apple Music issue seems predicated on everybody getting the same 3 months free at the same time. Only true for initial launch
Taylor Swift: “It’s great that Apple Music is offering a free trial in its endeavor to finally make paid streaming music popular, but Apple, who is keeping up to 28.5% of the revenue for itself (not the profits, mind) should be the one paying for it.” Um, what?
TerraTech was the first build-your-own-vehicle game I found well made and enjoyable… until it launched over-powered enemies at me then respawned me without a radar so I couldn’t make my way back to the base I had built.
It never ceases to baffle me that the same political correctness has banned “handicap” and is even phasing out “disability” yet labels the slightest neurotransmitter imbalance a “mental illness.”
We could live without Keychain ACLs, couldn’t we? (I don’t nearly care as much about the rest.)
@galyonkin/some-things-you-should-know-about-steam-5eaffcf33218">“Some things you should know about Steam”
(Damnit, why can’t everyone learn English already?)
Inside Out is clever, very clever, but feels more like an overgrown student movie than a properly enjoyable Disney/Pixar.
Deux tweets différents du pape retweetés par deux personnes différentes le même jour dans ma timeline. WTF?
As for the FaceTime camera, you’d think the priority, short of improving the battery life, would be to make the device as thin as possible.
I generally share the frustration of security researchers seeing that the issues they find aren’t fixed but, considering how wide-ranging, deeply rooted, and understandably hard to fix the XARA vulnerabilities are, it’s kind of a dick move for them to have refused Apple’s request for a delay, and released a 0-day exploit, isn’t it? This doesn’t look like one of those cases where Apple just doesn’t care enough.
Folding@home still exists, and it doesn’t seem to integrate a cookie clicker game. C’mon!
I don’t think I’ve mentioned again in the last couple of weeks that Nurse Jackie has never been as good as this final season.
Wow, that last shot in the latest Nurse Jackie. I wonder where they’re going with only two episodes left to put a bow on it all.
Ok, en fait l’app est naze. Mais de toute façon je n’attends que Steam VR pour m’enfermer définitivement chez moi.
No Man’s Sky was the main reason I was glad to have a PS4 and now I want a gaming PC more than ever before.
Little Inferno is little more than a cookie clicker with pun-based riddles and nice visual effects. But what’s interesting is, that formula totally works.
