Hi! Do you remember blogs? Well, this used to be one. Now it just serves as an archive for my multiple Twitter accounts.
Difference between an iPhone and an actual real life proper movie camera. Never seen such a direct comparison before https://t.co/7E4Dt8db6k
Literally the most beautiful space images/footage ever captured. Everyone needs to see this, gain some humility.
Here is a video of Fiona, the Cincinnati Zoo’s new baby hippo, exploring her habitat. You’re welcome. https://t.co/LYf2KGTobd
1) Okay guys we need to talk about this Pittsburgh and Paris stuff. People are confused. It’s about gender. (Thread below) https://t.co/AmR7yzl5V4
Bloodborne is literally the only game that makes me persevere for days trying to open the very door in front of which I keep respawning.
Of course that also means I have an irrepressible urge to tweet that HEY EVERYONE I OPENED A DOOR TONIGHT.
If watchOS 4 still requires two presses of different strengths to figure out temperature and condition I’m switching to Android.
Love the way colourising old black and white photos brings the past into the present. This video has great examples https://t.co/RCgJ2fePr1
The Darkroom app is so good that it’s making me much more frustrated than before with the limitations of my old iPhone 6′s camera.
Level 51 is as good a time as any to find out that Bloodborne takes blood vials from your storage when you respawn.
Just in case you wanted another iOS 11 spoiler (this is an option in the Feedback app when filing a bug) /via @charavel https://t.co/mQVlJjZbb4
Il dort bien profondément, le connard qui m’a réveillé à 05:30, 07:30 et 10:00. Qu’est-ce que je lui fais ? 😼
The vertical carousel style for watchOS probably works well to optimize information density, but wtf is up with those gradient backgrounds.
Maybe have the keynote last half an hour longer instead of making everyone rush through everything? No?
apple is clearly listening to the people moaning about performance, and it’s meeting them in the middle, sorta.
I wanted to post a 🤦🏻♂️ every time it was warranted (i.e. every 30 seconds) but “Duplicate status.”
Ooh I wanna know what privacy compromises Apple made to finally have iMessage conversations sync properly between devices.
This means iCloud storage is now encrypted.
iMac Pro looks awesome. But it is NOT the new Mac Pro. New Mac Pros are still in the works for next year.
Turns out the past of computing had a lot of good ideas.
Damn, iOS 11 on iPad Pro looks fantastic but I still want to enjoy it on an 8-inch iPad with Pencil and I’m never gonna get that 😢
Apple is making the perhaps very smart assumption that stellar audio and subpar AI trumps subpar audio and semi-OK AI.
Best part about iOS 11 screenshot behavior (tiny window + Markup) - is you can say “Done” then discard after sharing. No need to save!
I haven’t opened one of my iOS projects in (only!) a year, and this is what I’m greeted with. Thanks, Swift. https://t.co/ISD4m31qlw
I asked ARKit for the height of my table. It was off by 3cm. 3.8% error. From a lousy video camera. This thing is great.
I’m catching up on House of Cards and it’s weird to think during season 3 you were supposed to root for the “unconventional” president.
On the iOS 11 home screen:
Short tap = open
Medium tap = popover menu
Medium hold = begin drag
Long hold = enter rearrange mode
Voilà. on pourra vous enfermer sans jugement, sans enquête,juste parce que qqun a soupçonné que vous étiez dangereux
Land: Okay, there’s like 4 basic shapes and everything is pretty much that.

Il aide des migrants sur une aire d’autoroute, passe 4 mois en détention préventive, se suicide.
Bienvenue en France
you, not on twitter, experiencing the world at a normal rate: did you hear about —
me: last week is as distant to me as the burning of Rome
Except I hate flowcharts and mind-maps and my system’s structure is much more inspired by Inkle’s format.
Apple Music’s Planet of the Apps’ first company pitch was an app that ARKit sherlock’d the day before.
Good representation of app world.
This bot is more significant than it appears. Reestablishes democratic norm that anything POTUS says is history.
Only just realized that omg I can finally enable iMessage on my Mac, too, without losing messages — and that means no more FB Messenger \o/
It would be pretty cool if it assigned you with a random other player. Actual prisoner dilemma stuff.
Oh, of course killing the boss in Old Yharnam opened a door in Cathedral Ward. God I hate how willfully obtuse Bloodborne is.
I’m addicted to the NYT crossword and there’s 20 years’ worth of archives in the app so I should be productive again around 2022.
Ma chambre est tellement poussiéreuse en plein soleil… clairement la seule solution est de fermer les volets jusqu’à septembre.
Have to admit: I was hoping a year off would give us something less recognizably Assassin’s Creed.
Kudos on the setting change but so far this looks like the same tired-ass game I’ve played a dozen times.
Second tour : culte de la personnalité Macron vs. culte de la personnalité Mélenchon, je ne suis pas sûr d’avoir une préférence.
In Destiny, see, you’re a Guardian with a jet bike! In Anthem, you’re a FREELANCER with a jetpack. You see, right? https://t.co/KOqOSUGwuC
Anthem is the promise of Destiny. The question will be can a shooter company make a better RPG or can an RPG company make a better shooter?
TIL that you can play Black Desert Online on PC with a gamepad. I should give it a… oh, it’s not F2P in Europe? Never mind then.
That might have been a bit presumptuous. I hope it’s EA’s Destiny, and not EA’s The Division.
How expensive is an E3 conference that no one was able to tell the sponsor he should maybe cut a few minutes from his speech?
There are many opportunities for The Crew 2 to be terrible (starting with their track record) but I’m intrigued.
And it looks gorgeous.
Skull and Bones has a crazy level of visual polish for a game that’s basically the same thing as Windward.
BEYOND GOOD AND EVIL 2 HAS SWEARS AND IS APPARENTLY DIRECTED BY FIFTH ELEMENT ERA LUC BESSON
That’s the best Ubisoft press conference in quite some time. Very human.
Spider-Man looks spectacular, but I hope it’s less linear than this demo suggests.
There’s also a TableViewReorderingUsesDragAndDrop pref key for UIKit that does away with the legacy reordering behavior and uses DnD instead https://t.co/kASkY4acro
Mario Odyssey definitely looks much better than the shitty-real-world visuals they showed for the initial announcement.
Incredible. Within first 10 minutes of Uber all-hands meeting today, a board member makes a sexist joke. https://t.co/iurWrXTOXw https://t.co/ngQW6uS5J3
Pendant ce temps on crache sur notre système de santé, on le trouve trop cher, on veut réduire les “charges” que sont les cotisations… https://t.co/9IpiI3iVPC
Je viens de finir la saison 3 de House of Cards et c’est dingue comme ils ont gâché ce qui aurait dû être le meilleur épisode de la série.
Increasingly uncomfortable with Facebook doing this. I live 6 miles away. Feels like they’re adding to people’s stress to drive engagement. https://t.co/6UxZ6iJDTZ
OK, David Cage décime des arbres par douzaine, mais au moins il recycle ses discours marketing #OVER2000!! https://t.co/L1m6Bmc00a
Twitter: The border-radius will increase until morale improves.
I’m so damn jealous of their name, too.
Tim Cook: I run Apple & hit the gym @ 4am to keep my body in peak condition
Me: I built an app &the pressure made me stress-eat 5000 cookies
C’est rare qu’un changement de showrunner soit bénéfique, mais la saison 5 de House of Cards est bien meilleure que les deux précédentes.
The state of AI understanding: someone can give a ‘Wizard of Oz’ demo with the curtain open and people still think they’re seeing magic
Surprising WWDC labs takeaway:
Many developers eschew the trackpad “natural scrolling” direction setting 😂
J’ai descendu la saison 1 de Twin Peaks d’une traite, mais après une heure de la seconde je crois que je vais plutôt lire un résumé 😴
With this heat there’s no way I’m turning on the PC — never mind a VR headset — so I guess I’ll focus on interactive fiction for the summer.
I’ve never understood modern tech’s tendency towards stupid and insanely loud beeping you can’t turn off. (Fine if you can.) https://t.co/GoDO1Dbtw9
I thought APFS upgrade wouldn’t be default — maybe it is only for beta testers?
TIL: The tube is hell because London clay is a giant heatsink that has been absorbing energy for a hundred years https://t.co/j60fS8U4nc
American Gods vaut le coup rien que pour le prologue de chaque épisode 😲😢
(Mais le reste aussi. Particulièrement cette semaine.)
Providing support for an app that sold for all of three months until it saturated its very niche market is the worst.
Urgent, cherche job d’été, directeur technique ou vice-président, bureau climatisé impératif. Ou caissier dans un Monoprix, sinon.
If you need a self-imposed Twitter break, just tell a nazi to go fuck themselves, the app takes care of the rest for 12 hours.
Japanese Robot Sumo.
I was aware of it, but had no idea it moved so fast.
None of this footage has been sped up.
Apple’s approach to getting Photoshop on iPad was ‘wait 7 years for an indie to recreate Photoshop from scratch’. Worked—not very scalable
Whatever you reward, some players will feel forced to do it. The tiny XP payout for hacking in Deus Ex 3 killed the game for this person. https://t.co/7EP0kAUAFD
I remember the mix of delight and horror when I found a Praxis Kit in a drawer. A Praxis Kit! But now I have to check EVERY. DRAWER.
Il y a un chien mouillé sur la plage en haut de ma timeline Instagram et je n’ai jamais autant regretté de ne pas avoir une fourrure.
Je découvre avec horreur que j’avais arrêté de regarder The Originals pile avant l’arrivée de Meg Foster 💜
Tech’s impressive but what I love most is the giant statue’s texture.
I have a lot of admiration for how Ancel is immediately excited about this big game about delivering pizza
I have to send out an invoice before month’s end so I can pay my rent. But my empty bank account is all that saved me from this Steam sale 😱
IF you accept that it’s likely we’re all living in a simulation then you also have to accept you’re probably living above a painting goblin https://t.co/pyvsn8OUGt

Bon, je n’ai pas passé 25 ans à me demander ce qui était arrivé à l’agent Cooper et je n’ai aucune raison de continuer à m’infliger cette saison 3 qui n’est pas faite pour moi. (Ni pour qui que ce soit d’autre.)
Just reached Byrgenwerth and judging by the new enemy design I’m getting close to the point where I can’t play this game anymore 🕷
Died with over 30k blood echoes at the second stage of the Moonside Lake. No way to find them again.
Just learned that Cheetahs are really nervous animals, and some zoos give them “support dogs” to relax https://t.co/NbqYZgmu7H

I can’t imagine how it could be a hard problem for Finder to remember the right view settings for each folder.
It got proposed, built, and shut down in the time it’s taken Hyperloop to build a test tunnel in a desert.
I wish Steam’s discovery queue had an “Already Owned” button. Clicking “Not Interested” on a game I own and like feels very wrong.
Why did I buy Dark Souls III when I’m still only halfway through the love-hate relationship that is my first Bloodborne playthrough 😩 #whycantigiveup
I feel like “grip” should explicitly be “contract” instead. MY TAIL SHOULD NOT FALL WHILE I’M COILED AROUND BAMBOO.
Seeing the hole punched in this Apple Pencil Case makes me wonder why the heck Apple didn’t do that themselves https://t.co/4rWkJBLdIs
And here is another @tiltbrush creation by Tobias Wustefeild. Honestly the #VR recently has been mind blowing. https://t.co/fOpLKn3tI5

Here are two iPhone prototypes. We called them Wallabies. I used these devices to make the software keyboard. https://t.co/qbofBL3RUt
Stories Untold’s free first chapter didn’t prepare me for how clever that game is. The meta-ness isn’t just for show.
I rarely replay games for achievements, but going through chapters 1 and 2 again made me appreciate how neatly it all ties together.
A complex review simmers in your mind. As you try to reduce it to a few tweets, it turns to mush and you end up with nothing but a 👍 or 👎
Futurama: World of Tomorrow’s short cartoon opener gave me a sad that can only be cured by deleting that “game” and rewatching seasons 1–3.
Something I haven’t seen anyone using an original iPhone mention: when you load the YouTube app, it has one video to stream. https://t.co/dDDwlO6qWu
