Hi! Do you remember blogs? Well, this used to be one. Now it just serves as an archive for my multiple Twitter accounts.
RT @stroughtonsmith: I have no idea what happens to computing when nobody on earth actually understands the algorithms being used to generate results 😶
RT @stroughtonsmith: Neural nets are fascinating ways to solve computing problems with magic algorithms humans may never be able to grok https://t.co/sfuHS0UhPw
RT @jimwaterson: Modern spies find it hard to go undercover because their aliases don’t have detailed Facebook accounts. https://t.co/CxaX0SaAJQ https://t.co/W6XEYNPDLO
Two of my favorite electronic artists, Overwerk and the leader from Tycho, were graphic designers at first 😨
Some days I wish I worked with people, maybe.
And I have no idea how the filters manage to be so slow on an iPhone 6. Is the old OpenGL API running through an emulator or something?
It’s still 320x480-only.
I guess in the next version of macOS they might as well replace the Finder with Windows’ File Explorer.
Asking Siri “Show me photos of dogs” should default to a web search, not launch Photos unless you said “my dog” or “my photos.”
There’s something to be said for external power supplies you can easily replace when they crap out. In other news, my old Drobo is alive \o/
I MEANT TO SCROLL DOWN ON MY EX’S PROFILE AND IT SUPER-LIKED HIM AND FUCK THIS SHIT I’M DELETING TINDER.
Obviously it doesn’t help that I got a taste of Driveclub VR last week, but I don’t think that’s the whole reason.
“30% installed, but you can start playing right away!”
starts the game
“Forza Horizon 3 needs an update”
I hate this console so much.
Finally found the one place in the Xbox dashboard where the installation progress counter isn’t stuck at 0%, so I guess I’m fine.
I deleted the game to start over and now installation is stalling at 4%. If my Forzabox is dying just before its last hurrah I’m gonna be 😡
Forza Horizon won’t be here until tomorrow and I need to take my mind off PSVR and maybe I should have bought it online even at 20€ more.
Why do Spotify’s song radios always end after a few hours? (It’s always better than Apple Music’s, which just refused to start, but still.)
RT @themadstone: The only winner tonight is the Voyager probe, which is speeding away from the Earth at 17 kilometers/second #debatenight
Bien fait de dormir, rien que les photos du débat me stressent, d’imaginer l’effort que ça représente de garder le sourire face à ça.
Honestly I’m rather curious to see what happens after Twitter implodes. Do we, as a society, step back or double down?
So… Twitter is pretty much the one use case where it makes sense to ask “Can the blockchain save us?” right?
Est-ce que j’essaie de rester réveillé jusqu’à quatre heures du matin pour assister symboliquement à la fin de la civilisation occidentale ?
Ca doit être le fait de m’être mis aux mots croisés qui déverrouille des connexions nerveuses dans mon cerveau.

Kid on the Nevermind cover: please no not again.

Je suis à ça de la crise de narcolepsie dans les toilettes à cause du son de l’aspirateur des voisins via les conduits d’aération.
An experiment to see how many accounts I can create with different filters over my face (with apologies to @fet_complains).
‘Hey Siri’ worked great during the watchOS beta but fails half the time since release.
I think I need to create a @garoo_complains account.

Not that I would be caught dead wearing those things but I’d love it if they started a round-video fad.
Hoping the “app extension issues” iOS 10.0.2 fixes include that user who left a 1-star review because the widget didn’t appear in the list.
I just super-liked someone on Tinder when I meant to scroll down on their profile. Goddamn UI traps.
Gave up on Safari because it has terrible performance with multiple tabs and with YouTube.
So now I’m… checking out Firefox 😳
Sierra opens the “Do you really want to change your default browser?” confirmation popup behind the active window — if not all windows ಠ_ಠ
RT @kezamacdonald: Some of the comments on Palmer Luckey’s now-deleted Reddit account are quite, quite extraordinary. Amazing how fast money can strip empathy.

Got a few days to see if I cancel my Forza Horizon preorder. Feels silly to waste time on my 20-inch screen just before I get Driveclub VR.
Didn’t seem possible to disable traction control in Driveclub VR; looks like they want to make sure you won’t do donuts until you throw up.
La démo Playstation VR est à l’angle de la rue des Archives et il y en a pour tous les goûts, si vous n’y allez pas vous êtes de gros nazes.
I don’t think it made me queasy (unlike Rush of Blood) but the lack of G-forces when you hit the brakes hard in Driveclub is extremely weird. Wheeeee! Suddenly you’re in zero-G!
And Rush of Blood is very good at what it does but oh my god demoing a rollercoaster to VR virgins are you fucking mad?
The VR mode in Bound is definitely pretty but having to keep teleporting manually in addition to controlling the character is too much of a pain in the ass.
The Tomb Raider PSVR experience is uninteresting and looks like shit because they’re going for photorealism without the power to achieve it.
Went to a PSVR showcase and somehow chose all of the worst demos. Except for Driveclub — Driveclub on a wheel is awesome.
I need a wheel.
RT @TimTr: Swift Playgrounds on iPad can control robots using Bluetooth. How cool is that?! Here’s a sample to get you started: https://t.co/2ybOysmbAO
Vue la chance que j’ai aujourd’hui avec tout ce qui est informatique, je vais ressortir aveugle de ma démo PSVR demain, moi.
And I completely understand why someone would think it’s a good idea not to switch immediately to an empty tab.
But it’s not.
Safari opening new tabs in the tab bar then not switching to them until the content has loaded, that’s new, right?
RT @stroughtonsmith: In a world where most photos end up on Snapchat/Facebook/Instagram, the faux-bokeh effect on the 7 Plus is as believable as most DSLR pics
Imperfect of course but very impressive
Oh yeah I forgot to say that the glossy iPhone is a gorgeous object, but everyone already knew that. Worth the fingerprints after all.
Sorry I didn’t have the presence of mind to point out that it would be the ultimate status symbol within weeks.
Young guy at the Apple Store table seemed obsessed with Jet Black but dejected that it didn’t broadcast “I have an iPhone!” like White.
Drame à la table iPhone de l’Apple Store : quelqu’un se met à me parler de son dilemme pour choisir une couleur 😱
I tried an iPhone 7 for five minutes in an Apple Store and I’m now completely disgusted with my old physical Home button.
Every OS update I try Safari again but don’t remember why I switched to Chrome and what to look for. This time I swear I’ll make a list.
I’m trying Safari again, as you do after any OS update, and I forgot how nice it is to have smooth scrolling.
I love Rez but, judging by the tone of everyone’s previews, there must have been MDMA in the water at the hands-on event.
I guess the music isn’t as bad as Child of Eden’s and I’ll get used to it.
I like to think the odds are pretty good that SteamVR will be compatible with Playstation VR headset and controllers by the time I get a PC.
RT @CraigGrannell: If you don’t use a cloning tool, SuperDuper! and Carbon Copy Cloner are both fab. I use SuperDuper! daily on my main works Mac.
RT @CraigGrannell: macOS Sierra is out today. If you plan to install, back-up your Mac first, preferably cloning the entire drive. Better safe than ARGH NOOOOO
Est-ce qu’ils ont oublié d’engager un directeur de la photographie pour les prises de vue réelles du film Warcraft ? Ca n’a pas de sens.
It doesn’t look like I’ll get a PC+Rift in the next couple of months, so I couldn’t possibly risk missing PSVR’s release.
Gave in and preordered the PSVR headset. Wanted to wait in case they released a complete bundle, but I’ll look for secondhand Moves instead.
Bon, il me faut un nouveau siège de bureau, et cette fois je ne me fais plus avoir, je prends une simple chaise, no moving parts.
I get how that makes sense to get the best possible picture, but as a photography enthusiast I’d rather they just disabled the 2x setting.
Can’t believe I’ve had this MacBook Pro for two and a half years already. That makes it perfectly reasonable to buy a big new PC for VR!
RT @jamiepinkham: Free killer iPhone 7 accessory idea: external battery with headphone jack
And it probably makes sense because most people didn’t organize their widgets, but it makes the view significantly less useful for power users. Well, I guess that’s iOS for you.
iOS 10 remembering your scroll position in Today view completely defeats the point of putting the most important information at the top 😕
RT @The_Axx: Apparently when I click the home button to exit an app, I do it with my fingernail. Not something I ever realized until it no longer works 😐
The Forza Horizon 3 demo was full of diverse cars at launch, but now all the drivatars are driving the same blue BMW we’re all locked to 😄
Samsung has much better OIS, autofocus, and sound.
It works great for free, and syncs to iCloud so you can create stickers on iPad and use them on iPhone.
I don’t really enjoy wave-based survival modes, but this looks more than decent.
Two things Overwatch gets right that For Honor mysterioulsy chooses not to: your allies are always the same color, and you can change heroes at respawn.
The iTunes Connect app’s notifications are silent therefore the Watch just displays them without tapping. That makes sense.
It wouldn’t take anything away from AirPod and Beats because most people would prefer to go full-wireless, but it would satisfy audiophiles clinging to their expensive headphones.
Since Apple have said they aren’t gonna license the W1 chip — how about releasing a standalone Bluetooth receiver and battery?
Who would have believed that, in 2016, I’d be thinking “I wish I had stuck to web development, there’d be fewer compatibility issues.”
