My name is Cédric Bozzi and this is my blog. Mostly, it’s an aggregate of my tweets and Instagram posts, but once in a while you may yet see an actual article here.
Pff, fait trop chaud ici, j'veux être ailleurs.
Indie Game: The Movie — Thoroughly uninteresting, beyond the curiosity of meeting the guys, which lasts all of five minutes.
iOS 6 makes it pretty obvious, I think, that Apple has wanted to have turn-by-turn directions on the iPhone for a while, but couldn’t as long as they were using Google. And I would be surprised if Google hadn’t been asking for more and more money — or more and more ad impressions — with each iOS release. (Remember that Reddit post about Maps giving sponsored directions to another fast-food place than what the user asked for, even though it was twice as far? That’s definitely not Apple’s idea.)
I don’t think iOS 6 is Apple getting rid of Google out of pettiness; I’m certain they switched to a new data source in order to offer more functionality, and at the cost of removing less important functionality that TomTom can’t provide. (Turn-by-turn is much more important to the iPhone than transit maps — transit info will be available in free or cheap third-party apps, but turn-by-turn was an expensive App Store purchase and as a third-party app it couldn’t be integrated with Siri. Voice-operated turn-by-turn, included with the phone, is going to be a huge factor for many people hesitating between iPhone and Android.)
RT @tapbot_paul: “Interesting data point, already seeing more 6.0 users than 4.x.”
Wrath of the Titans — Not perfect, but so full of awesome and so pretty. God of War: the movie, and in a great way.
Apple may be annoyingly US-centric still, but at least their keynotes don't happen in the middle of the night for Europe. Right, Microsoft?
