Hi! Do you remember blogs? Well, this used to be one. Now it just serves as an archive for my multiple Twitter accounts.
Updated iTunes, still not sure what headaches enabling “iCloud Music Library” entails (got two Macs with different libraries and playlists).
Ce début de soleil a l’air super photogénique, mais j’en ai marre de [prendre des photos de] la vue de ma fenêtre.
The Watch made me want a Pebble. Apple Music’s implementation pushes me to try Spotify and Rdio again. I knew Apple was falling, but damn.
And, without it, Apple Music is much less useful.
No. Still no.
Dark Matter has that cheap look traditional to Canadian sci-fi shows which could be fixed in two minutes in After Effects, but other than that it’s… okay.
I want a single-player RPG where your character — gender, appearance, stats, even sexuality — is randomly forced on you, Rust-style.
The UX is bad but the functional design is well thought out.
I might stick with Apple Music (for curation, and the convenience of everything in one place) if iTunes’ “New Station from…” starts working.
Avec la chaleur, je pouvais perdre un petit peu de poids parce que je n’avais pas l’énergie de manger, ou bouffer des glaces. J’ai choisi.
It’s not the kind of game I’d be likely to ever finish — let alone buy — but I’ve played the demo for Black Closet and it’s got lovely writing and solid mechanics
It’s fashionable to crap on Reddit these days and celebrate its demise, but that’s like congratulating yourself for how Usenet and IRC have become obsolete because you didn’t like a few of the newsgroups or channels available there. (Reddit is corporate-owned, but until the recent change in management it had very deliberately clung to the same freedom-of-speech and laissez-faire operative principles as those decentralized platforms, so the result was the same, good and bad.) If you curate just a little bit the list of subreddits included in your home page, Reddit is still the best place on the internet to have intelligent discussions — a site on which you can actually learn something in the comments section.
Just bought Ark Survival Evolved, then saw it supports VR, so now I’m considering saving it until I can get the full Jurassic experience.
I’m worried Mr. Robot might be written by a Tyler Durden fan and I’m gonna have to regret enjoying the parts that I did.
Also, Coney Island’s Ferris wheel seems completely crazy and I don’t quite understand how it works but who the fuck wants to ride it?
I’m getting ridiculously hung up on the fact that there’s no way Mr. Robot’s Elliot could sit on the Wonder Wheel without jumping out of his skin every time a nearby pod thunderously rushes toward him. (But, hey, it sure makes for an impressive shot.)
Kingsman is a ridiculous, disgusting, awesome mess of a movie, but what it could really do without is the casual sexism.
Another architect who’ll burn in hell.
Each movie Blomkamp makes is exponentially worse than the one before. I can’t bear to imagine what he’ll do to Alien.
Amazon m’a foutu du Lego City sur la page d’accueil et maintenant je veux une pièce entière dédiée à un diorama avec des trains Lego.
Via /r/deepdream, the most mesmerizing subreddit ever.
Getting a 5-star wanted level for killing a goat is! not! fun!
I can’t believe Unreal just carelessly opened the door to “well, you know, maybe she deserved her abusive husband.”
Faut dire les utilitaires d’aujourd’hui sont plus confortables et agréables à conduire que les vieilles guimbardes dont j’ai l’habitude.
“Two-Factor Authentication in iOS 9 and OS X El Capitan”: Looks like they’re getting rid of the extremely problematic recovery keys and using phone numbers instead, which is much better. I never thought they’d actually fix that issue, never mind so quickly.
I’d love to see more information about the manual process to authorize people locked out of their account, but the description at least makes it seem like they’re taking the responsibility seriously.
RT @asponge: life goals… be the first person found dead on a toilet wearing VR goggles?
I’m really glad I’ve had to switch to Pocket Casts. The iPhone app + polished web app is a great combo.
Evidemment maintenant que j’ai les Mr. Freeze au freezer c’est difficile de se rappeler qu’ils sont à réserver pour les urgences.
The Magic Circle may well have interesting mechanics, but the writing fails so much at capturing my interest that I didn’t finish the demo.
It was hard to maintain my excitement when the game made its biggest reveal after only about fifteen minutes and exactly twelve searches. It seemed like an extremely obvious keyword, too, not like I was typing words at random, yet that made me skip so much filler, so many tiny twists, that I clearly wasn’t supposed to reach this particular video so early in the game.
I guess a concept so interesting and novel is worth it even if 10% of the players get the solution too quickly — but it sucks to be in those 10%. And you could say I am biased but, when you lay everything flat, the overarching story is… kind of dumb. In fact, even if it had taken me an hour or two to figure out what was happening, I suspect my reaction might have been more along the lines of “oh, fuck off” than “wow.” And I’m not a fan of the acting, even if it’s not nearly as bad or off-key as it seems in the trailer.
Still, some scenes are quite entertaining, the game’s cheap, and you probably won’t be as unlucky, nor as critical of the story, as I was.
I didn’t notice it immediately, but I love how much the “For You” tab emphasizes entire albums — considering the savage times we live in.
Catastrophe is lovely, but I wonder how they’ll avoid having a newborn perpetually crying in the background of series 2.
C’est trop bête, le bal des pompiers de la caserne d’à côté est noté “à confirmer” dans la liste officielle, dans le doute je vais devoir rester chez moi.
C’est joli, les drapeaux tricolores flottant en haut de la colonne de la Bastille, et c’est un peu idiot qu’ils ne soient pas permanents, non ?
The way iOS 9 blurs the lines between pages and apps, there’d be no better time to resurrect webOS’s all-tabs-in-the-app-switcher paradigm.
RT @IanMorris78: Pluto trivia: since it was first discovered in 1930 Pluto hasn’t yet completed an orbit of the sun. I love Pluto.
RT @jimmydivvy: NASA: Decade long flight across the solar system. Arrives within 72 seconds of predicted. No errors.
Me: undefined is not a function
As interesting as Sunset’s concept is, I hate the implementation. Not helped by how stuttery it is, even with lower visual settings. (Hello, migraine.)
It just breaks the immersion for me that the ‘game’ part of Sunset is, “he wants you to send a letter, so go look everywhere for a letter.”
Mr. Robot is turning out to be obnoxious, and not just because of the increasingly insulting “is he or isn’t he” (which I hate either way).
Is there a version of BattleBots with just the fights? Because I want to watch them, but I can’t take the bullshit theatrics.
Wow. Just found out that someone blocked me, and I can read their tweets in Tweetbot — but not on the web. Is that a temporary bug in the Twitter API or a long-standing issue?
I’ve been watching the “DoubleFine Adventure!” documentary on YouTube and wondering how different my life would have been if my first jobs had been in offices full of smart, interesting people. There’s always the possibility I gave up a little too soon on the whole job thing. (Yes, it’s too late now.)
RT @neilcybart: The features found in the free tier of Apple Music will be enough for many people. That’s not necessarily a bad thing for Apple either.
RT @CarpeAngela: Fuck baby centaurs that’d be scary af. Their horse half would be all robust with their baby half just dangling there.
Des doutes initiaux sur le nouveau lieu de la Scream, mais en fait la salle a une configuration idéale pour une bonne ambiance sur la piste.
I had never gotten agar.io to be playable on my Mac, but the iOS version runs great. So simple and addictive.
I know it’s petty to answer a support request with “as mentioned in the app’s help…” but I can’t stop myself.
Une fois sur deux le chat refuse que je la touche avant qu’elle m’ait léché les doigts. C’est un peu vexant.
J’écoute Whitney Houston parce qu’Apple Music me l’a proposée, mais avec la fenêtre ouverte j’assume mal.
Depuis le temps j’avais oublié à quel point les trottoirs de Paris ne sont pas faits pour les rollers.
Et puis je veux pas dire fuck les aveugles, mais bon, les revêtements à bosses à chaque passage piétons, voilà, quoi.
Guess I’m gonna bite the “I hate the app” bullet and try it again.
RT @misterbrilliant: Another embarrassing u-turn for climate “scientists”. First they said June was the hottest month ever recorded. Now they’re saying it’s July
Fuck the IoT. They can’t be trusted with IP addresses.
Cette nuit j’ai découvert que tous mes rêves étaient enregistrés à la cave depuis des années. (Meta !)
Et j’ai dû fermer mon profil Facebook en panique parce que j’avais cliqué par erreur sur “Partager tout” dans l’app de visualisation.
RT @danielpunkass: Limited time only: $AAPL stock is only $0.99/share. Trust me, Apple, the exposure is worth it. Market will appreciate true value over time.
La semaine dernière on pouvait danser à la Scream parce qu’il y avait de la place sur les côtés, alors là ils y ont mis le DJ et le bar 👨🏻🔫
RT @theguyliner: You should never date a man who screenshots a guy’s Grindr pics and tweets them out. It’s a serious dickmove.
I get the feeling that NBC execs saw the back half of Hannibal’s season 3 and figured the show was only gonna devolve further into ponderous wankery, so it was time to put it out of its misery.
RT @mdhughes: I want all my iThings to go DND when I take off my watch, and turn off DND when I put it on.
Ok je viens de faire le calcul et de réaliser que l’ambition de mes life goals a horriblement sombré.
It’s amazing that online shopping can be successful considering the nightmarish clusterfuck that is home package delivery.
Shame that Jurassic World is so painfully dumb, because most of the action is actually cool. And the running raptors are so damn pretty.
