Hi! Do you remember blogs? Well, this used to be one. Now it just serves as an archive for my multiple Twitter accounts.

Developers constantly build systems that assume bad actors will never act in concert and, by doing so, grant incredible powers to bad actors that act in concert [twitter.com]

On the one hand, this kind of comment. On the other, the Playstation blog helpfully reminding me why I just can’t.

@jbu3:

That goes further than a misunderstanding brought on by an unfamiliarity with social interactions. That’s bigotry. And autism doesn’t cause bigotry, yet here he is, blaming it all on the world’s favorite cognitive boogeyman.

Banished is almost more of an idle game than a city builder but I just spent three hours in it and it is nicely zen (except when I feel bad for killing so many trees in order to build my silly little town)

For the next six months, I’ll be visualizing my REM dreams every morning in #VR with #TiltBrush to analyze, expand, and unify them into a singular VR experience. This is a preview of one that I built in 3 days.

This is it. This is their end game. All the racism, Trumpism, fake news, and cruelty have been working up to this return on investment.

This is pure speculation but I bet an angry phone call from Disney is ultimately what prompted this more than anything else [twitter.com]

J’ai cassé ma dernière assiette creuse Ikea en début de semaine ; impossible d’en trouver en taille adulte dans un autre magasin. Comment mangent les gens qui n’ont pas de voiture ?!

Nice, for VR games Humble gives the choice between Steam or Oculus keys. (Keep Talking… is 4€, might as well get it even if I never have the opportunity to play.)

Ok hear me out: an LA Noire/Blade Runner game except you’re an exorcist identifying demons by finding signs & tells in dialogue, and then you have to expel them from their hosts in unique ways across different cases.

Someone make that. I will buy it day one.

Oh, hey, did you know how fucked we truly are?

I, for one, hope to be killed by climate change before we get concentration camps in western Europe again.

@Blouchtika:

“De mon temps” la “bibliothèque rose” s’adressait aux plus jeunes, la “verte” à des enfants plus grands. Maintenant rose c’est les filles, verte les garçons. Wtf.

What will be the first landmark or monument designed explicitly to provide opportunities for projection mapping? Time to bring back brutalist architecture.

That’s interesting: Animoji not only works with your face, but also with video files!

So no 3D sensing required?

@ZevEisenberg:

Apple, you’re killin me with the mismatched apostrophe curliness of the default, non-editable names of your peripherals.

@ironicsans:

Idea: What if Flash in the Justice League moved at 48fps in an otherwise 24fps movie? (I guess his scenes would be shot at 48, downsampled to 24 except his roto cutout, then projected at 48). Might it look cool? Or bad like he was not actually shot in the same scene? // @tvaziri?

@Gemenne:

A partir de la sordide affaire Ramadan, Manuel Valls aura donc réussi l’exploit de dresser des journalistes les uns contre les autres, et surtout de faire oublier le sujet premier : les violences faites aux femmes. Bravo.

Je ne sais plus qui dans ma timeline a recommandé You Again, mais il est plus que temps d’interdire aux hommes d’écrire ou réaliser des films avec des personnages principaux féminins.

TIL que l’app de la Banque Postale gère Touch ID, il faut “juste” aller l’activer au fin fond des options.

How did adding images to a project become so excruciatingly slow in Xcode 9?

@haydencd:

Whether consciously or not, EA just did that with Battlefront. Everyone rejected the original system, they went “Cool, it’s now an arbitrary 75% better,” and I’m already seeing people say the core issue is “fixed.”

@haydencd:

There’s a story about Team America where the first cut submitted for a rating had a 10-minute graphic puppet sex scene, reason being they knew it would get an X rating but if they then cut it to a reasonable length and resubmitted it would probably get an R.

Some steps backwards, methinks.

@WritNelson:

HOW TO WRITE A STORY INVOLVING TIME TRAVEL AND/OR CLONES:

- Get a Great Idea

- Start writing the story

- Carefully fix any plot holes

- Realize there are infinite plot holes

- Throw away the story

@davewiner:

With cannabis legal in so many states, why isn’t there a cable news show that spends an hour a week exploring the changes this brings about? Such a large change, an end to Prohibition, seems there would be quite a bit of interesting stuff to discuss about it.

Of course I would only find out right after finishing Opus Magnum that you can rotate several parts together by pressing A or D while dragging them.

@basche42:

Netflix should experiment with bringing back staggered episode releases of marquee shows but instead of once a week do it every night

Problem binge model is inability to carry the conversation

Stranger Things s3 dropping nightly over a period of 9 nights is a cultural DDOS

It might have been a better idea not to include the single-player “story mode” in For Honor’s free weekend 💤

Tweetbot’s Reply button should be a different glyph whether the person follows you back (you’re conversing with someone you ‘know’) or not (you’re commenting on a stranger’s post).

Nice discussion of the improved Street View image blending work the team’s done. Jaggies-be-gone. [research.googleblog.com]

It hadn’t occurred to me but I’m suddenly wondering if 280-character tweets are implemented server-side as threads of two tweets.

@praxicalmagic:

Two months ago, Louis CK had said his accusers were spreading “rumors.” His fans continued to revere him. Under pressure, he has now confessed and awaits patiently his redemption. There is a script, and men know it by heart.

@laura_hudson:

Never forget that Louis CK spent YEARS saying—to the world and his victims who were listening—that nothing happened and he didn’t care

@benhumphreys:

Small reminder that any story about Japan that says “wacky/weird thing X is a huge thing in Japan!” means that thing exists in one place, and nobody in Japan has heard of it.

@mikeBithell:

I always feel like it’s a good idea, as an indie, to swim towards X when AAA declares X dead or stupid business-wise.

- if they’re mostly right, that’s ok, I need far fewer customers.

- if they’re mostly wrong, that’s very ok, I’ll do well til they realise.

@starscryy:

PLEASE read this story about a guy throwing his steak out a window i promise it’s the beat thing u will see all day

As a side note — as great as your game is, as proud as you can be of your work, do NOT trap me in a VR headset with a long, unskippable (unless you quit) credit sequence.

I’d say Lone Echo is twice as long as its limited gameplay warrants, but what a great, polished VR experience. Not the slightest motion sickness, and the realism of those hand animations does so much for immersion.

@louisvirtel:

Just thought about the reality of 280 emojis so I hope you’re ready for Cher’s Twitter to turn into the Bayeux Tapestry.

@tweetbot:

The next release of Tweetbot 4 for iOS and Tweetbot 2 for Mac will support the newly expanded Tweet length limit.

What’s the over-under now on third-party apps ever being allowed to post 280s?

Godsdammit a new gestural UX is the dumbest possible reason to get a 1200-euro phone upgrade

It’s really X as in UX. Face ID + much welcome reboot of interactions that piled up awkwardly over ten years = temptation rising 😬

If I were still interested in 4.7” iPhones I’d be tempted—mostly for Face ID—but not at this price. And thankfully I’m too used to 5.5” now.

The X is… fine 🤷🏻‍♂️ Too fat, too much bezel, screen doesn’t look that extraordinary to me. But, yes, the notch is okay in person.

@NathanJLiu:

Apollo app replaces Apple’s awful volume indicator in the most elegant way possible.

If the display controller can already address pixels at 240Hz for PWM, shouldn’t it have been trivial to implement ProMotion 120Hz?

In retrospect it’s rather obvious since each pixel must be modulated individually instead of making a single backlight blink independently.
