Hi! Do you remember blogs? Well, this used to be one. Now it just serves as an archive for my multiple Twitter accounts.
Chaque année devoir réapprendre à survivre à l’été, puis réapprendre à survivre à l’hiver. Fuck le climat, il a mérité ce qui lui arrive.
Activision buys Candy Crush maker for 5.9bn
Disney & Star Wars: 4bn
FB & Instagram: 1bn
All I can think reading this article is BARF.
Crossy Road hard mode: play Apple TV multiplayer with yourself. (UI is so obtuse I actually needed an article to explain how to enable it.)
I’m evidently in a minority about this but I do think the heart/like makes a million times more sense.
What did a fav mean? — A communication platform can’t have a major feature so vaguely defined that it actively encourages miscommunication.
And, yeah, Slack-like reaction smileys would be nice, but we’re talking about the company that couldn’t enable polls without shortening tweets, so.
Still wondering what fragile-looking “muscle wire” does that good old electromagnets couldn’t.
iOS 8 used to crash to lock screen while updating every third app. iOS 9 just uninstalls apps at random. I’m not sure that’s progress.
Writing a letter to the Meme Committee to tell them to retire the “bae: come over…” meme because I can’t stand it and that’s reason enough.
Agent A for iPad substitutes constant backtracking (and nice production values) for interesting puzzles. Well, escape room design is hard.
Looks cool, but… why do you all want to spend 50+ hours in a post-apocalyptic wasteland?
Why on earth is the MacBook’s “Automatic graphics switching” a global-only setting? I only want it enabled while on battery power.
Wish there were an interactive demo, because it seems great.
It’s funny how jarring I find Horizon Chase’s graphics in Retina definition. They looked so cute in videos, but this style needs pixels.
I’d buy an iPhone 6s if you could 3D-touch a mistyped word in any text field to access a list of possible corrections.
Ironically, the most frustrating aspect of my Pebble may be how, once a week, it spends the whole day pestering me to charge it.
Sinon je ne sais même pas comment classifier le mec de vingt ans hier qui se baladait en look complet mafioso-dans-Miami-Vice.
Facebook can’t resist an opportunity to be creepy.
You could send your pet home to clear your inventory in Torchlight 6 years ago. It’s a crime to implement encumbrance today without a similar system.
WTF. The slideshow on top of Apple’s homepage takes over my OS-level keyboard shortcuts (Cmd-Alt-arrows) for switching tabs in Safari.
I hope a good Microsoft Courier clone app for iPad Pro comes out soon so I can stop thinking about making it (I haven’t got the time).
Removes the “iPad or Surface?” question, leaves “iPad or not?”
My credit card was hoping the iPad Pro reviews would cast at least the slightest aspersions on the Pencil. Oh well.
Biggest iPad Pro marketing mistake was focusing on the keyboard - you can see that reflected in the reviews. Consumers’ll have same reaction
1. Damn, it’s big
2. Keyboard’s much more keyboardy than I expected
3. Yup, Pencil’s fantastic
4. Yup, Pencil’s out of stock
Finally checked out 3D Touch in person and I still don’t understand why you all like it. Even the haptic feedback sucks — feels like an error message.
I just might order a Pencil online and wait until it arrives to get an iPad Pro in store. (How ironic if they ran out of iPads by then.)
Also, two Pencils for ten iPad Pro demo units. Is the supply chain completely fubar or is Apple actually sabotaging the launch just to avoid the “they blew it” troll?
Snapchat waited just long enough to make you feel like they’re doing you a favor finally letting you purchase your favorite filters.
Note that the pro-GG panel is still scheduled.
Le piège tendu par les terroristes est de nous amener à haïr les musulmans pour qu’ils choisissent le camp qui les “aime”. Résistons.
I’ve had to restore purchases today in two different apps on two different iOS devices. Guess it’s not just the MAS screwing up.
Les avatars tricolores me posent problème. Pour afficher son soutien depuis l’étranger, ils ont un sens, mais en tant que français et parisien, ce que je ressens personnellement, ce n’est pas un sursaut revenchard d’identité française ou parisienne, c’est juste la douleur du deuil.
Du coup j’ai fait un générateur d’avatars de deuil, parce que je n’en ai pas trouvé d’existant.
(Après, chacun son truc, hein, je ne jette pas la pierre à ceux qui ont envie de mettre le drapeau. Je propose juste une alternative.)
Aller à Truffaut pour voir les chiots, y rester pour les deux étages de décorations lumineuses de Noël.
Else Heart.Break() is lovely and I really want to like it, but it’s such a pain to play I’m not sure I can ever launch it again.
It’s odd how few iOS games there seem to be with proper daily challenges. I love having a reason to do a Card Crawl run each day.
The NYT crossword app’s custom keyboard is a huge pain in the ass and, like, totally the reason I’m failing.
1. Slack kills email
2. Slack dies
3. No email, no Slack, life is relaxing and quiet and awesome
Giving Guild Wars another go, and the Mac client works much better now, but the game seems to assume I’ve played an MMO before; I haven’t.
Mon téléphone sonne pour me proposer du boulot en pleine conversation SMS où on me propose du boulot WHAT IS HAPPENING.
I don’t suppose they snuck an arachnophobia mode into the Lara Croft Go update without telling anyone, did they?
There must be a mistake, that thing dwarfing my desk is twice as big as the iPad Pros I saw on those huge Apple Store tables.
Didn’t quite realize in the Apple Store how embarrassing iOS’s unmodified UI and default apps look on the iPad Pro. What a rush job.
I have to say I kinda want to buy an iPad Pro keyboard now because it feels terribly silly owning such a device and not using it to work.
Using the iPad Pro vertically in bed (reading comics) feels like looking up at a billboard on Times Square — which is both awesome and ridiculous.
The #anyonecanimproveatdrawing tag is really lovely to browse. People working hard at something they care about and becoming amazing.
Tout ce temps on nous essayait de nous faire croire que Looking devait être le Girls gay, alors que Please Like Me existe.
Day 5: I’m seriously considering returning the iPad Pro because it’s too big to be useful, and just found out I have until January 20 to decide because I bought it during the Christmas shopping period \o/
I don’t even know how the iPad Pro’s reviews weren’t more negative. Buying an iPad to use as a laptop replacement only makes sense because you’re getting two devices for the price of one: a tablet for casual usage, and a subpar laptop for the only additional cost of an external keyboard. It’s a compromise.
But the iPad Pro is so big it completely sucks for casual usage — so you’re just left with a subpar laptop, running an OS designed around touch, attached to a keyboard that doesn’t include a trackpad. That’s not a reasonable choice, and it will take a serious overhaul of iOS before it becomes one.
I also think the iPad Pro is too large and inconvenient to carry around in meetings and take handwritten notes. That leaves professional artists as an incredibly niche target demographic. (Which makes it even more ridiculous that there’s a Pencil shortage at launch.) But, even then, unless you’re successful enough to afford a $1,200 paper pad, the Surface Pro is probably a better investment, since you get a proper laptop (running a desktop OS with a trackpad) at the cost of a slightly inferior stylus. That is an acceptable compromise.
Damn, I hate that I’m talking myself into returning the iPad Pro to get a Surface.
