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

RT @ID_R_McGregor: Nice shot for scale of returned @SpaceX booster. Either it is very, very big or those are tiny, tiny men.

I can’t remember who it was that asked me a week ago why I’d stopped working on apps.

(Got an e-mail from a user asking why there are padlock icons on the keyboard, because App Review would rather have that than an explanatory message.)

Ah, found the e-mail and yes, they did reject my app because the keyboard extension dared to mention the IAP needed to make it functional.

I feel like the change I wanna make in my app was rejected a year ago, but I’m not sure and there doesn’t seem to be a way to check 🤷🏻‍♂️

I liked YouTube’s regular digest e-mails but they’re gonna have to go if I can’t opt out of the “so and so is streaming live!” notifications

RT @GeorgeSokol: Been looking at how #Overwatch environments are built, lots of neat trickery here.

For example, these doorways? Floating geo!

I apologize to myself for not abandoning Sherlock last week when I had the chance.

(You don’t have to make the same mistake.)

Meanwhile the MBP is very clearly weaning us off physical keyboards. What’s the point of keeping a mechanism if the travel is that short?

Couldn’t find even a mention of the AirPods at the Apple Store but, fret not, at least there’s a table with two goddamn “Designed…” books.

I will say that, of all the things that are fantastic in this game, the animation work in the final act is just incredible.

I finally just played Inside.

Human language does not allow me to express anything more about that experience.

RT @MachinePix: Another demonstration of Vantablack, the blackest known substance. It absorbs up to 99.965% of visible light, hiding textures. https://t.co/7ohwZx0mwe

So, Dishonored 2’s final encounter is… bad, right? Everything before had been pretty much perfect, but argh.

RT @stroughtonsmith: Zelda Breath of the Wild—Switch vs Wii U: resolution, shaders/color, LOD, frame rate improvements https://t.co/eOiCYdS4D3

A Twitter client that keeps outgoing tweets in an editable buffer for ten minutes — one minute for replies.

I don’t understand why my Steam screenshots always come out so dark when all the relevant settings are at their default values.

Damn, this is incredibly beautiful in motion

Je me prépare à aller faire des courses pile quand se terminent les 24 heures d’excuses pour ne manger de la glace 😕

The Dishonored games still have the best environments

C’est fini je ne mets plus jamais les pieds dehors 🤒

RT @tfadell: Exactly! No doubt in anyone’s mind which was the right path. Those on the iPod based UI knew is was doomed. SJ pushed us, “Make it work!” https://t.co/LHq6jQaAew

RT @tfadell: Wrong!!! There was never a competition. We, together, were searching for the best solution. Steve asked us to test all the possibilities… https://t.co/DNkT2WZnqV

And it’s not CR’s job to realize that turning the cache off somehow causes completely random power consumption issues.

Can’t believe a bunch of people in my timeline are blaming Consumer Reports rather than the bug. Disabling the web cache in a performance test is a pretty obvious step.

J’avais préparé ce tweet bien avant la scène finale, alors j’hésite à le réécrire à l’identique parce qu’une fois ne suffit pas.

Steven Moffat est en train de devenir une caricature de lui-même, et Sherlock une vraie plaie à regarder.

RT @mrgan: A decade into the mobile-computing era, webOS remains my favorite visual design. Clear, rich, friendly. [pic.twitter.com]

Every time his keynote videos pop up again I feel nostalgic for all the directions in which he’ll never get to push technology.

I guess the the fact that no one else emerged as The Next Steve Jobs makes me feel better about failing to be The Next Steve Jobs myself.

Je viens de me rappeler que mon coloc m’avait prévenu de ne jamais commencer à laver les murs

RT @BrothersBrick: An ancient evil ascending from the depths [brothers-brick.com] [pic.twitter.com]

Bad enough that Spotify doesn’t recognize any way to appreciate a track other than saving it, don’t rub salt in the wound with a fake ‘like’ button.

That word, I do not think it means what you think it means

RT @tapbot_paul: I love these graphs. The Mac Pro from 2010 is still faster than anything else Apple ships. Quite a bit cheaper too.

Postcards from the Edge est comme Wishful Drinking : trop de récrimination sans perspective. Ca donne du voyeurisme, pas de la comédie.

Today is Saturday and, like just about every week, I can’t imagine how I ever managed to get a 58-day streak in the NYT Crossword.

RT @EricHolthaus: I’m starting my 11th year working on climate change, including the last 4 in daily journalism. Today I went to see a counselor about it. 1/

RT @josephfcox: TV channel reports on girl who used Alexa to buy a dollhouse. TV report then causes viewers’ Alexas to do the same https://t.co/sB4PWSXkXT https://t.co/r2fSRvpDEk

Impossible de trouver un article qui explique comment ils font exactement parce que la curiosité intellectuelle est morte.

RT @tfadell: SW version of iPod+Phone for UI team. You can see why we ditched it?

Bon, j’étais juste assez maso pour aller regarder le replay de Saturday Night Live sur le site de M6, mais pas s’il faut en plus s’inscrire.

Elite Dangerous alien encounter [youtube.com] [youtube.com] Great design, for both the ship and the encounter.

You can’t play PSVR games online while pretending you don’t have a mic and that’s not a reality I was prepared for 😱

By which I mean I literally can’t wait and will surely buy another headset before that’s properly available.

4 January

RT @leroncier: Attention, c’est du lourd. #fourches [twitter.com]

You do not need to take over and darken the whole screen to tell me this — especially not with a slow fadeIn + slideDown

I don’t wanna go back! It’s scary in there!

I took a job within the UK and my truck’s cabin is all bugged out

3 January

RT @cdespinosa: Happy 40th birthday, Apple Inc. [pic.twitter.com]

And we’re already at 1440x1440 for $300-ish on January 3 so this is promising. There’s no way SteamVR won’t support them, right? Right?

WHY DOES DISHONORED 2 NOT LET ME USE THE RIGHT STICK TO CHOOSE FROM THE WEAPON WHEEL.

RT @hiyalauren: RIP John Berger, OG selfie advocate and wonderful thinker [pic.twitter.com]

RT @kylebrussell: Just in case he ever runs for office [twitter.com]

Can’t get the Phone app to lose the red ‘1’ on its icon. Can’t be bothered to reboot; the battery troubles will shut it down soon enough.
