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

27 April

Let’s do this but in landscape. Wrists are wider than tall; it’ll never look like an old-school watch so stop trying.

“Nokia is gonna make smartphones again” is the new “webOS is coming back.”

The problem isn’t that stainless steel gets scratched, but that the Watch isn’t designed to look good with scratches #realworlddesign

Just figured out that what people call the Watch’s “air gap” must be the glass needing to be thicker to withstand Force Touch. (I knew it had to be the glass’s thickness, but blanked on the reason why.)

Les mecs qui chantent pa-pa-pa-pam.

Les connards parisiens qui font du sitting sur le dancefloor, par contre… it can’t be helped.

Erratum : 💜💜💜 le Mix Club, ses lights, sa sono, ses lights, sa 3G, ses lights, ses bouteilles de 75cl, ses lights, sa sono, ses lights.

RT @danielpunkass: Awesome, from a time before all fans simply had “baskets” built in… [pic.twitter.com]

Annulez tout, mon pantalon de clubbing est cassé !

Trouble getting iTunes to sync my Photos albums to iPhone. Is there gonna be a point when iOS devices are just unusable without paid iCloud?

I was adding black rounded corners to my iPhone apps before the Watch made it fashionable again.

Tellement parfait, j’hésite à le laisser.

On pourrait inventer un sac besace qui se porte à la ceinture pour les gens qui transpirent beaucoup ? NON CA SERAIT PAS UN SAC BANANE.

Quand la caissière de Naturalia a désactivé l’antivol des fèves de cacao j’ai réalisé que j’aurais peut-être dû regarder le prix d’abord.

Microsoft needs to license the technology from Huanshi’s MyIdol app for the Xbox Live avatars. It’s just too good.

23 April

RT @lukew: Don’t ever say you don’t have choices on mobile. [pic.twitter.com]

RT @landonfuller: Apple, you so evil. App rejection: “… your app and app description declare support for the Pebble Smartwatch” [forums.getpebble.com]

22 April

Am I really gonna have to buy a wifi-enabled camera and use its shitty app just because Apple’s Lightning camera adapter only works on iPad?

Buying a digital camera is so hard. There are multiple brands to choose from! It’s anarchy!

RT @charlesarthur: Remember that amazing chase and final fight in Bourne Ultimatum? Paul Greengrass describes how and why in pictures: [dga.org]

En fait, Instagram m’a filé la flemme de peaufiner une prise de vue tout autant que Twitter m’a désappris à écrire un vrai texte.

21 April

J’essaie d’ajouter une page “consultance UX” à mon site pro. Il faut mettre du texte dedans. BON SANG MAIS QUE JE DETESTE ME VENDRE.

Wow, I submitted an iTunes Connect bug and it was fixed in five days. It would almost encourage me to post more (but not really).

20 April

E-ink is (hopefully) gonna be the one differentiator that allows Pebble to survive, and I can’t see why it wouldn’t work for tablets too.

I’m still waiting for a full-featured tablet/laptop with the same color e-ink as Pebble Time. Several-day battery + usable in sunlight.

RT @lgorithm: “Make any animation half as long as you think it should be. And then possibly halve the timing again” (B. Scott - Designing Web Interfaces)

RT @Colossal: New Urban Geodes on the Streets of L.A. by Paige Smith [thisiscolossal.com] [pic.twitter.com]

I feel less guilty for being addicted to DomiNations knowing that its creators were designers and producers at Firaxis.

Never realized that Moleskine was a brand created entirely out of nowhere (and from a French common noun) in 1997. Hail the power of marketing.

“Dialogue by Orson Scott Card.” I bet that’s why the woman in The Dig keeps protesting “I don’t need to be rescued,” then needs to be rescued. Because aren’t feminists funny.

Je regrette de ne pas avoir envie et capacité et hétérosexualité de me taper un festival EDM+camping de trois jours sur la “plage de Torcy.”

18 April

RT @sethclifford: Guys, super villains don’t just show up. They start as rich members of society and take a turn.

Elon Musk is broadcasting this process.

If I didn’t have rent (and taxes) to pay I’d take a few months off to learn Unity and code a fully Newtonian, zero-assists spaceship sim.

RT @Phastin: The secret backstory of The Lord of the Rings:

Gandalf is trying to get an achievement for taking the Ring to Mordor using only Hobbits.

Am I a nerd if I say that Ant-Man is stupid because if he super-punched a guy when he’s bullet-sized then he’d make a hole—like a bullet?

A Qi iPhone case without the usual chin

Are they using a counterfeit Lightning connector, or is there finally a smaller option officially available?

17 April

DomiNations for iOS is everything you expected from Godus minus the fancy terraforming. The pinnacle of free-to-play city-building Skinner boxes.

16 April

Tous ces salauds qui ont des balcons avec vue sur un parc. La tête au bout d’une pique.

I never watch music videos so I hadn’t thought about the potential for VR: bite-sized experiences that immerse you in the artist’s universe while remaining short enough not to make you sick (and not to completely bankrupt the production company). An actual video game would be hell to design, because you’d have to think very hard about how the music will sync up with the player’s actions, but it totally works if the interactivity is limited to moving your head.

Damnit, my old Wacom’s all screwy in Yosemite. But it’s taken me six months to notice, so it’s hard to justify buying a new one.

Love seeing Anna Friel but American Odyssey’s story makes me uncomfortable. Doing straight-up government and/or military conspiracy in this day and age feels a bit irresponsible.

12 April

Où sont les distributeurs de Twix de nuit ? #parislanuit

Musique excellente à la Scream toute la nuit alors forcément on tombe en dessous de vingt mecs sur le dancefloor. Parisiens têtes de chien.
