Hi! Do you remember blogs? Well, this used to be one. Now it just serves as an archive for my multiple Twitter accounts.
RT @stroughtonsmith: iPad will only be what Apple makes it. If not the future anymore (it was Steve’s), that’s 7 years wasted watching the Mac go nowhere either https://t.co/5UtBSnPblh
RT @SimonXIX: So far the main difference between my 20s and my 30s is all the fascism. No-one tells you how much fascism there will be in your 30s.
Can’t imagine it’s worth the trouble just to improve Power Nap, but it’d give Apple a reason to get macOS apps compiled for ARM before announcing ARM Macs.
RT @Jedd_Ahyoung: “What is technical debt?” Technical debt is hard to explain, but a picture is worth a thousand words. #programming #softwaredevelopment https://t.co/AG2L3VDuKZ
I’m so tempted to buy a cheap Android phone rather than spending a week and 100€ to get a genuine new battery installed.
I’d miss Tweetbot, Touch ID, and a few other small things, but most of all unlocking my MacBook with my Watch. Death by a thousand cuts.
J’ai lancé l’épisode en me demandant pourquoi je regarde ça, et ils ont direct démarré sur Archie qui fait un footing torse nu dans la nuit 🤷🏻♂️
En lisant/relisant (pas sûr) Foundation je réalise soudain avec amusement à quel point c’est le miroir gauche-progressiste d’Atlas Shrugged.
Installer FaceApp, passer dix minutes à alterner entre les vues “original” et “hot,” sortir la bouteille de vodka et le Xanax.
I don’t know how it made financial sense for Letterpress to add bots this late in the game’s life but I absolutely love that they did.
Le scénario d’Arrival est vaguement intéressant, mais je ne suis pas convaincu que la réalisation de Villeneuve soit un atout.
RT @BenedictEvans: It’s no good saying ‘don’t read the comments’. The comments are running the country.
RT @HenryEspinoza__: I want to trust people the way Lady Gaga trusts those suspension cables.
RT @Chris_arnade: 6. Their jobs prospects, earnings, & communities where being devalued/destroyed. And then told they had white privilege. By front row kids! https://t.co/LB4DvhQT7v
J’ai bien fait de regarder The Handmaid’s Tale au lieu de le lire, tiens. C’est horriblement déprimant et filmé comme le pire téléfilm.
J’ai déjà du mal à lancer un épisode de Colony, qui va vouloir regarder une adaptation en série de The Handmaid’s Tale ? In this day and age.
Trying to play Mankind Divided after Dishonored 2 was a terrible idea. So many annoyances stand out from comparison.
Do they sell a variant of Munchkin where the cards are big enough for humans to read? It’s a lot of fun, but you sometimes need a telescope.
I stupidly tapped “Update All” and there are 14 partially filled progress circles right now. Anyone ever heard of staggering the downloads?
Because obviously, with all those concurrent updates, my iPad ran out of space and now they’re all stuck forever.
I played seven board games this week, watched dozens more on YouTube, and now I’m having board games ideas 🙄
RT @cabel: Things That Bug Me: LED brake lights that lower refresh rates to “dim” them. When I glance left and right all I see are these lines 🤤 https://t.co/bFGbheyLoL
RT @cabel: This might not make any sense so here is a dramatic reenactment of what I see. Please tell me I’m not alone here. ………please https://t.co/o7Gzx8RNDu
RT @stroughtonsmith: Every time I spend time with magazines I wish the wider web could be more like they are. Rich design, paginated, non-interactive, permanent
La température et les ours polaires osef mais si on ne peut plus trouver le moindre fruit potable il va être temps d’arrêter le gasoil.
RT @NathanJLiu: An awful trailer for a show nobody wants.

RT @Mae_lcr: L’humiliation, c un débat violent et interminable où des députés homophobes ont outrepassé les limites de la décence https://t.co/PdvVtaaTy6
RT @Mae_lcr: L’humiliation, c’est qd Hollande a proposé la liberté de conscience pr les maires opposés au #mariagepourtous https://t.co/0muYhlJryq
RT @leroncier: L’humiliation, c’est de voir qu’il faut si peu de temps pour réécrire l’histoire et transformer les bourreaux en victimes. #teamhumiliés
RT @Walldo: This is 🔑 reading to understand not just Pewdiepie, but the toxic masculinity/culture that lead to what he did https://t.co/xPgB1JEVcX
Ohh Dirt Rally PSVR is out today and I want it but I already own it on two other platforms but I want it but it’s 50€ but I want it arghhhh.
RT @timoncheese: This is the kind of stuff we get when we cover the holocaust. This man thinks it’s ‘propaganda’ to assert that the holocaust happened. https://t.co/JUy4iDy8AT
Whenever I get a streak over 2 weeks on the NYT crossword it becomes a chore I resent.
Games with daily challenges 👍
Emphasis on streaks 👎
RT @stroughtonsmith: The way Apple is marketing iPad use right now is with the vertical touchscreen+keyboard they use as an excuse for keeping the Mac sans touch
Game shop already making hell of a profit on games I’m too lazy to put on eBay but not enough—gotta upsell me hard on insurance & preorders.
RT @anneapplebaum: When Stalin used the label “enemies of the People” about a group, that was a prelude to arresting and often murdering them.
Now feeling paranoid about whether my iPhone always got so hot when charging+syncing (I think so?) and wondering wtf to do with old battery.
Dirt Rally VR is the most fun I’ve ever had driving an imaginary car, even if I have to go lie down after an hour.
Is this the prettiest educational video game ever or what? (I do love the concept, too.)
After two months with a battery case, using a sleek naked iPhone 6 with 24-hour battery life suddenly feels like THE FUTURE.
@DaleBeran/4chan-the-skeleton-key-to-the-rise-of-trump-624e7cb798cb">From 4chan to GamerGate to Trump: what we need is a deradicalization program for white males.
RT @kirkhamilton: My main take on Horizon Zero Dawn is holy shit look how they animated her legs when you spin the camera while on horseback https://t.co/o9w7hlVXVQ
RT @stroughtonsmith: I really love that something as basic as copy/paste has been made unreliable and unpredictable thanks to network sync with iOS. 😛
RT @stroughtonsmith: Will pasting in this field on iPad paste the text I just copied on iPad? Oh no, it’ll take the Mac pasteboard from a minute ago. ಠ_ಠ
Of all the shit Milo Yiannopoulos said, it’s a bit disturbing that he’s falling on what may legitimately be his coping strategy as an abuse victim.
RT @yashar: When Simon and Schuster signed Milo, Roxane Gay gave up a pile of money and cancelled her deal in protest. Here are her thoughts…. https://t.co/qOIdtB6TbS
RT @winter_wk: & it sure as fuck isn’t because anyone cares about kids. He’s going down because the right’s homophobia could no longer abide him
Instagram still doesn’t care to remember your social network sharing settings from one post to the next.
Yay! The Last Guardian came in the mail!
Oh, it has a drunk, laggy camera and I’m gonna get a migraine in ten minutes.

Looking at a photo of a T150 wheel, I thought “huh, weird, mine isn’t blue.” Oh, wait, it is — but I’ve only used it in VR where it isn’t.
RT @VincentDanie_l: réponse claire efficace de Taubira à Macron sur l’humiliation pendant les débats sur le mariage pour tous https://t.co/muS0pQhGHT https://t.co/yNlIeBZKEG
“Podcast Settings” popover closes itself every time iTunes is done loading an episode in the background — of any other podcast, too.
And the ‘Done’ button doesn’t seem to respond to Enter, giving iTunes that much more time to dismiss the popover while I move the cursor.
RT @SeanMcElwee: Twitter literally lets white supremacists openly use their service as a recruitment tool but draws the line at saying “fuck you” to the VP. https://t.co/2RT4XYzBaT
Bit of trivia I googled while drafting this tweet: distance to Andromeda is “only” 25 Milky Ways, if I got my math right. Would have thought it was more.
RT @mrgan: Every single white picketer here thought they were a good, decent person, and resented being vilified by progressive for their beliefs. https://t.co/azwJcQiyQl
I’d been wondering how those tiny camera stabilizers could work with only 3 degrees of freedom; only occurred to me today the other three are handled digitally 🤦🏻♂️
RT @stroughtonsmith: Two of the Switch unboxing videos I’ve watched so far have had people slide the Joy Con cap on the wrong way and get it completely stuck 😐
FWIW I did feel like my iPhone handled its aging battery much better following the latest format-and-restore a few weeks ago.
Was excited at thought of trading in my dormant Xbox One for a Switch but now wondering exactly how little I really want a Switch.
RT @britishgaming: Night in the Woods is filled with clever touches, like how your pad rumbles when a dialogue choice comes up so you don’t tap through it
I’d been afraid to try but a little alcohol does totally help with VR sickness.
Not that great for my Dirt Rally performance though.
Also tried a bit of Driveclub and, damn, Dirt Rally’s realism – on every level – has completely ruined that game for me.
I’ve decided to be reasonable and save my Switch money for a PC VR headset but the Zelda reviews aren’t helping.
(Visual spoilers begin at 3:00.)
RT @jo_delb: Ce que vient de dire Marine Le Pen est vraiment ahurissant et dangereux. Il faut que le président de la république réagisse. https://t.co/FtR8e0Dad3

RT @Padraig: 1Password’s marketing is getting gross. We have a gift for you! (The gift is “you can pay us for a subscription and get a few months free”.)
J’en suis à vingt minutes de La La Land, il y a un moment où la parodie s’arrête et le vrai film commence ?
Et je découvre après une heure quarante de comédie musicale qu’en fait Emma Stone sait chanter ¯\(ツ)/¯
RT @stroughtonsmith: Fun fact: hold down Home+VolUp at cold boot to boot iOS 10.3 into CheckerBoard, a new diagnostics & logs system for Apple Retail stores https://t.co/Ft9eys1Dc3
Coming from Apple’s usual outlet for unofficial announcements, the “they just mean the computer end of the cable” theory makes zero sense.
RT @KittenRescue: Our webcam went down this morning. A review of the footage showed that this was the last image taken before we lost the feed. 🤔 https://t.co/n2s4z3jyhh
