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

Je me demande quel âge j’avais la dernière fois que j’ai acheté du S. Merci Uniqlo !

I’m not using push anywhere; are you telling me the AdMob SDK is trying to register notifications on my app’s behalf?

Me: I uploaded the app, attached the IAP in iTConnect, you approved the app but not the IAP.

Apple: You need to attach the IAP in iTConnect.

Dans une librairie japonaise avec un ami, il sort ça totalement au hasard du rayon — bien obligé de l’acheter.

RT @BenedictEvans: Facebook doesn’t disclose mobile-only DAUs, but the monthly data is clear enough. Mobile-only is now 44% of the base. [pic.twitter.com]

RT @mrgan: If Instagram really wanted to respond to how people were using their app, they’d introduce regramming and sharing before unsquare photos.

Depuis que je tweete des images pour faire djeune la pellicule photo de mon iPhone est pleine de conneries, c’est lourd à supporter.

Je suis presque sûr que je n’ai jamais utilisé spontanément le mot “texto” #old

I’d sooner buy a tiny Bluetooth headset than a smartwatch… if only iOS offered to read notifications aloud (without enabling VoiceOver).

Of course I shouldn’t be surprised — they’re the only service with enough data to avoid showing me stories I’ve already marked for reading.

Pocket’s new ‘Recommended’ section appears to be surprisingly accurate and useful at first glance.

J’ai testé pour vous le plantage de clés dans la paume de la main, et je ne recommande pas, en fait.

25 August

La tentation de l’Apple Watch ne revient vraiment que quand je ne suis pas chez moi. Il faut donc juste que je tienne jusqu’à dimanche.

RT @Bouletcorp: [Blog] J’ai fait une note très longue avec de belles images/animations. Elle s’intitule “Brassens dans le Cosmos”.

La correspondance de la 14 à la 4 à Châtelet qui fait traverser la gare RER de bout en bout et revalider trois fois son ticket 😡

Engager une femme de ménage juste pour plier les T-shirts.

RT @uliwitness: iOS 9 offers the option to turn off “Shake to Undo” in Accessibility. FINALLY! Getting annoyed of clicking dialogs away on bumpy buses.

La petite marche post-clubbing par 20°, y’a rien de mieux. Enfin, si, je peux facilement imaginer beaucoup mieux là, mais vous me comprenez.

Au cas où vous n’auriez pas remarqué, j’ai la 3G maintenant sur la piste du Gibus. Et la musique m’emmerde.

Les mecs qui font Yepah! dans les clubs. Ou sifflent. Ou ne dansent pas. Ou dansent mal. Et les moches. Les mignons. Bref. Vivement l’apocalypse.

It would be really cool if you could touch your iPhone’s screen in your pocket and have it vibrate the count of your unread notifications.

J’assumais mieux le T-shirt tétons-qui-pointent quand j’allais en boîte à pied dans la nuit, plutôt qu’en métro.

“Ouhla, il va falloir que je rachète une brosse à dents—SADENTS!” ou comment se foutre la honte à soi-même avec un flashback improbable.

J’ai l’impression de ne pas être sorti en boîte depuis une vie antérieure.

Fine, I’m not resisting Trello anymore. I’m still not a fan of being locked to a kanban view, but the overall UX is too good to pass.

Attack on Titan (version anime) est assez fascinant quand il y a de l’action, mais putain les épisodes entiers de soliloques mièvres.

21 August

If you aren’t a conspiracy theorist, it’s pretty easy to see that Spotify’s new privacy policy, while poorly worded, is just trying to cover all of the app’s bases — such as (voluntarily) looking for your contacts on the service, or offering you a relevant playlist when you go running.

Shame on Wired for carelessly starting a lynch mob. (And I don’t even like Spotify.)

Giphy a sorti une très bonne app pour faire des selfies en gif, et ni Twitter ni Facebook ne les acceptent comme avatar. Pft.

I mean, there’s really not much point in slaving to build 1:1 landmarks if players can climb all over them in five button presses.

My new app has been approved!

But they forgot to approve the IAP so it crashes when I click the “Remove Ads” button.

I’ve been looking at issue trackers / project managers, and only FogBugz’ UI doesn’t make me want to die. Plus, free for solo artists. Yay!

To Be Takei is well done, and more interesting than you might expect, not being a Star Trek fan.

RT @ClaudioAlbertin: We’ve come so far as a species [youtu.be]

Pac-Man 256 could have used a tiny bit of subtlety in emulating Crossy Road. Textureless isometric look doesn’t work nearly as well here.

Ah, to be a fly on the wall when Apple’s reviewers receive the companion app for Samsung’s new smartwatch.

Why are people excited about The Martian? I feel like the trailer has showed me all I ever needed to see of it.

Les salauds de mon Franprix avaient des oeufs de Pâques à la liqueur à la caisse. Dix minutes plus tard, j’ai mal aux dents.

The best, easiest improvement to iOS customization Apple could make would be to let the user change an app’s icon. It’s just a square image.

Mais comment c’est possible qu’en 2015 la boutique en ligne Lego ne propose pas des gros sacs de briques d’une même couleur ?

I never pay much attention to the art in comic books but I’m in love with The Wicked + The Divine’s pages by Jamie McKelvie (and those covers!).

How many years of your life did you spend editing tweets down to 140 characters?

RT @sethclifford: Open iTunes

Open a playlist you made

Click “Edit Playlist” in upper right

Principle - Animated Design

Looks fantastic. If only I could let loose on it and pay someone else to code my apps.

Implementing responsive design has finally killed whatever sliver of fun I might still have had writing HTML.

RT @HoeflerCo: The expression “cutting a check” comes from this, which punches numbers out of paper. [instagram.com] [pic.twitter.com]

Impossible de trouver une app de gestion de projet qui me plaise. Argh.

I wonder if petting a cat and opening a box of biscuits don’t satisfy the exact same impulses #diettips

RT @ZevEisenberg: I know it’s only Monday, but Tumblr 4.3.1 for iOS has already won release notes for this week.

The Pebble has four buttons and in default operation two of them are used to… cycle between ugly watchfaces that can’t be disabled. How could it take them two years to realize that’s terrible?

Meanwhile I have to decide whether to buy the Apple Watch, and I’m not gonna wait months for the new OS to be available on the old Pebble.

Once a week I think “now I’ll take the Apple Watch off and give the original Pebble another shot,” turn it on and oh my god I forgot again how much the UI annoys me.

I’m not much better at Rocket League than at real-life soccer. Americans are lucky the game isn’t bringing back school memories for them.

Amazon: It’s Worse Than You Thought™

(Watch the outrage now that it’s not just blue-collar workers being mistreated.)

I quite liked Gone Home until I reached the ending, and it’s impossible to even allude to what bothered me without spoiling the story.

I’m not an MGS guy but the base invasions look fun

…if they avoid the frustration of getting invaded too often in the middle of missions, and having to choose between interrupting what you’re doing or losing valuable resources.

14 August

Apple has released a $15,000 notification display so who the fuck still cares whether the iPad is “just” a content consumption device?

If I could send a message to my 15-year-old self… I’d be completely unable to find a relevant memory to prove I’m me.

Mon cerveau a envie de se balader dehors sous la pluie fraîche. Et mon corps a l’esprit d’escalier, il va attendre demain pour protester.

As much as I dislike the show Mr. Robot turned out to be, the Coney Island part of the reveal was really cool.
