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

I hope Extra Gear is meant to introduce the 2017 or 2018 Top Gear hosts, because it’s sad how much better they are than Evans & LeBlanc.

Je vis moyennement bien d’être sorti prendre des photos de la crue alors que je trouve ridicules les badauds sortis voir la crue.

Les pelleteuses retranchées en haut des quais me font penser aux photos d’arbres couverts de toiles d’araignées suite à une crue je ne sais où.

Hadn’t used Xcode in months. Trying to reinstall my app, couldn’t get out of provisioning issues. Closed Xcode, opened a vodka bottle.

APB Reloaded’s character creator is surprisingly nice. Shame that the rest of the game is ugly and runs terribly on Xbox.

Ah, donc en plus de ne pas être drôle, cette saison de Veep se révèle tourner entièrement autour de ses histoires de coeur. Classe !

Really fair “subscription” model. You keep the version your updates ended. Major version bumps are just marketing. [blog.sketchapp.com]

@DKThomp:

The app boom is over: the average US smartphone user downloads 0 apps per month. [recode.net]

Specifically, I want to hear “App Review is faster now because we’ve stopped being dicks about what we approve.” And yes, also free trials.

@BenedictEvans:

WWDC must be really full if they’re messaging this now instead of on Monday

@fraserspeirs:

I sincerely hope someone at Apple has thought about how all these subscription apps will deploy in schools. [theverge.com]

@KaneCheshire:

It’s just about to become a whole lot harder to be an independent dev on the App Store

Oh, gross — Apple is pushing subscriptions so hard that it becomes the simplest way to offer a free trial

Does Sony confirming PS4 Neo today without showing it in detail at E3 mean they’re considering a last-minute spec upgrade following the new Xbox rumors?

Nothing has gotten louder applause at #WWDC2016 than tap-to-replace emoji.

Crazy that the Watch’s ‘Digital Touch’ lives on in iOS 10.

What’s the point of Messages so aggressively playing catch-up with Facebook Messenger if they’re not gonna go cross-platform?

Someone told me recently that God of War 4 is heavily influenced by The Last of Us, but I didn’t think they meant it this literally

Well, Sony won E3 se hard it’s not even funny.

@patrickklepek:

The continuing problem with Sony, however, is they announce games to have a killer E3, then the games get delayed over and over and over.

@DDDrewDaniel:

When I was in the closet and frequenting public cruising areas as a teenager in KY, I was filled with violent rage against my self.

@DDDrewDaniel:

But this also turned into fantasies of violence directed towards the men I met there. The closet is a space of psychic splitting & conflict.

There’s no way I’d buy a Wii U but I must say the new Zelda’s environment is beautifully inviting.

Resident Evil 7 Beginning Hour is… fine, I guess? It wants so much to be P.T., and very much isn’t.

Like every three months I’m annoyed at how much Twitter has shaped my self-expression and decide to fall back on Tumblr for mid-length posts.

Looking at screenshots of the new notifications, widgets, and the Music app — I guess this year’s endemic issue is low information density?

La saison 2 d’Unreal se concentre sur tous les aspects les moins intéressants de la première, et ce n’est pas une grosse surprise.

Ooh, je me demande dans quelle mesure on peut considérer que ça s’applique aux apps de drague

@balbinus:

Trying out the first beta of #iOS10. So far so good! #Apple #geek #iPhone #UI [instagram.com]

The new watchOS UI is designed around the fact that people use few apps. But the main reason people use few apps is how much they suck in the current OS, on the current device. So that’s not very future-proof.

a thing I learned about golf today [pic.twitter.com]

Beaucoup trop de vidéos 360° foireuses à l’installation GearVR mais les deux-trois attractions en vraie 3D valent le coup.

Les démos stéréoscopiques font immédiatement travailler mon oeil paresseux ; c’est très drôle mais il va me falloir des lentilles.

Fact #1 from a GearVR demo today: the tracking on an S7 is a million times better than Cardboard on an iPhone 6. Properly impressive.

Fact #2: playing 360° videos is an incredibly lame use of VR goggles. Actual 3D or bust.

Actually should refrain from judgment, because 3D VR forces my lazy eye to work, so it wows me by just being much more 3D than real life.

C’est un outrage, toutes les configurations de Kallax qui n’existent pas. J’exige un 5x1 et un 3x2.

After months of saying I’d never do public VR demos because of cooties, I spent yesterday afternoon strapping a multitude of GearVRs to my face ¯\(ツ)

Ne riez pas, mais il me faut des T-shirt plus colorés.

Interesting that the HTC Vive doesn’t force my lazy eye to work like GearVR did. I guess it’s that much more lifelike.

However, Tilt Brush is the absolute best thing ever. It’s like painting with magic spells out of a wizard’s wand. A. Ma. Zing.

I had big plans for what I was gonna draw but was too happy just tracing ribbons of light in the air to focus on anything else.

C’est la première fois en… bien deux ans que je ne suis pas déçu par un nouveau gadget que j’étais impatient de prendre en main. (Merci pour rien, Apple.)

Unlike most of the attendance I found Space Pirate Trainer mind-numbingly uninteresting. Shooters are a no-go for me — at least until headsets provide proper peripheral vision, if not forever.

It’s hard enough for an on-screen FPS to convey you’ve been hit, but it will never make sense in VR until you’re wearing a haptic vest.

There’s a huge, brand new disconnect between how profoundly immersed you are in the world vs. having to refer to a HUD to know your health or that you’ve been hit.

The focus should be on tracing the silhouette of shields and arrows with your “wand” to conjure them, not just shooting and teleporting around.

La surprise d’entendre des jeunes fredonner Freed from Desire dans le métro puis la déception d’apprendre que les footeux salissent tout.

Music players that treat Shuffle as a global toggle rather than a per-playlist setting 😡

Do they really expect each and every music-related app to license cover art or create fake albums from scratch?

If only Apple had any relationship at all with the music industry, they could work out a global deal for all App Store apps.

Je n’ai jamais vu le “If you’re both interested, we’ll let you know” de Scruff en action, on est sûrs qu’il marche ?

C’est vraiment pas une heure pour regarder Game of Thrones mais qu’est-ce que je vais faire d’autre, fermer Twitter pour la journée ?!

Cars can drive themselves but Twitter clients can’t detect and hide spoilers. Priorities, people.

The pacing of this season finale was a hate crime against storytelling 😡

Here They Lie PSVR gameplay

Looks fantastic, and interesting locomotion choice (longitudinal movement only, plus 90° snap turns).

If you can indeed avoid motion sickness just by preventing strafing, that’s so much better (for immersion and gameplay) than teleportation.

Halo 5 is playable for free for a week but I think I’m done after half an hour. No idea if that’s me or the game.

I’m shocked though by the number of Cool Moves that happen in cutscenes. Halo games didn’t use to do that, did they? It’s so boring.
