Hi! Do you remember blogs? Well, this used to be one. Now it just serves as an archive for my multiple Twitter accounts.
Edited an old RAW image in #AffinityPhoto #iPad today, so fun to use! Here’s a quick time-lapse video: https://t.co/EEIpEFD5JX
Trying VapoRub to overcome the association of Oculus smell with discomfort. Works great, but can it end up ruining eucalyptus for me?
VR menus in House of the Dying Sun look stunning. Not convinced by gameplay. And why would you let me invert vertical but not horizontal.
Fruit Ninja VR is a lot more fun than I ever expected. Simple but refined, never threatening — most enjoyable of the sword games for me.

The Desolation of Smaug en 48fps par curiosité. Mais, tant qu’on évite les mouvements de caméra et les mauvais acteurs, ça marche plutôt bien, en fait.
Tilt Brush but anywhere your camera can see stuff and infinite volume. Insane! #arkit #madewithunity @madewithARKit https://t.co/9e4950RT9P
I’m happy to report that while SpringBoard looks lovely in 120Hz it has not pushed me to throw out all my devices.
All the third-party drawing apps looked terribly laggy compared to Notes. Does faster Pencil support need special code?
I’ve only just watched the WSJ’s interview video for the iPhone’s anniversary. There isn’t much in it that we didn’t know before, but I enjoyed the software keyboard’s story, as told by Scott Forstall:
One year away from launch, they couldn’t figure out the keyboard; Forstall froze development of all system applications for a few weeks so that every engineer could offer their own take on it. One of them (I wish we knew who) came back with the intelligent keyboard we know and its dynamic hit regions.
I feel like iOS and watchOS would have a better UX if Apple did this more often. If you got ten people each trying to reinvent the Notification Center, surely you’d get a better result than the incremental deterioration of the last few years. Or the Watch’s awful Weather app. Or…
I made an app to tweet textshots of my blog posts \o/ Now to find out if I’m able to write entire paragraphs again.
Les deux Franprix à côté de chez moi viennent d’être réaménagés, visiblement par la même équipe totalement incompétente, et je ne vais plus pouvoir y aller tellement ça m’énerve de voir le bordel et la non-optimisation de l’espace.
Le système de bornes de commande de McDo me fait presque le même effet, mais la différence est que je n’ai pas d’alternative si je veux des McNuggets.
What I appreciate about FFXII’s art is how they captured that painted style on the character models – means the game’s aged really well. https://t.co/3XmuWz9Xwt
I like Reel. Too esoteric, I guess.
At $1200+ would cause me to not buy it and I’d probably skip the s model too. If I can’t have the best why bother?
Goddammit I’m not gonna reboot my Mac just so the emoji palette manages to find valid screen coordinates, am I?
I’m not gonna do much in “Blocks by Google” until they add mirror planes, but I love this app already. The classic idea of modeling by extruding faces and moving vertices and god knows what else has always seemed completely unfathomable to me (whereas I’m perfectly at ease with the way Rhino or Fusion 360 works) but moving your head around the model and adjusting its faces and vertices with your hands is so much more natural.
Blocks is somewhat limited at the moment but you can see where it’s going — assuming it’ll follow the same path as Tilt Brush — and it has every chance of becoming quite awesome and quite useful.
The fact you can’t save mid-day in Stardew Valley is completely discouraging me from launching it again. Maybe I should count myself lucky.
I was watching a video about the realism (ha!) of Assassin’s Creed: Origins’ fauna and just realized: you could solve the absurdity of its magical hovering drone-eagle by giving it autonomy — instead of controlling the eagle, you just move the overhead camera freely, and the eagle circles around the view to symbolize the way it’s gathering information (and transmitting it to you via long-range wifi, I don’t know).
I refuse to fly an eagle that has a pause button. But then, I don’t intend to play Origins anyway, so who cares.

TIL that you can access Lightroom’s “Clarity” setting (and the others too) in Photoshop’s “Camera Raw Filter” \o/
Il va falloir intégrer l’idée que rester chez moi à comater par grande chaleur me coûte bien plus que les 20 € d’une journée de coworking.
Facebook’s serious about putting it in people’s hands 😳

Blobbing in the studio today w/ the Vive + ARKit. Definitely some huge mixed reality potential here. 😍😍😍😍

1) Pick an industry
2) Ask people in that industry what they use spreadsheets for
3) Build something better
Waiiit does this really mean if I saw the eye then someone was watching me, and I don’t know who? 😳 I can’t find any confirmation elsewhere. (From Fantastic Contraption’s lovely manual.)
That video doesn’t retroactively make me like the game but I appreciate and respect a writer who puts that much depth into their story and characters. It’s ironic that there is so much detail and hidden depth when the lack of subtlety is what turned me off in the game: for me the execution was too forced, too unrealistic, and relied on emotional blackmail (notably with half the vignettes preying on every parents’ fear for their child’s life — no wonder that left me cold). You don’t get points for world-building that needs a one-hour YouTube analysis to be revealed if the first-time experience itself doesn’t feel good.
The exception being, of course, Lewis’ story, which is such a masterpiece of… ludo-narrative harmony, I guess? that I do agree it’s worth the price of admission.

Personne ne semble s’être rué sur l’Oculus à 450 €. Le futur est à la porte, je suis le seul à avoir lu de la SF quand j’étais jeune ?!
Il y a quelques jours Le Monde a partagé un article sur sa page fb en utilisant le mot “autrice” en encart.
Creating a control scheme for the Steam Controller is a lot of fun. It’s like designing a game without having to actually make a game first.
Tenez puisqu’on parle des #migrants & réfugiés je vais vous raconter une toute petite histoire vécue par un militant de @assoAIDES
I swear I’m trying to give the ME:Andromeda trial a fair chance, but I can’t shake the feeling I’m watching The CW.
Most interesting thing that happened in the first two hours was when I found out the Paul Bettany AI is a heavily processed woman’s voice.
Je considère comme un grand compliment qu’un mec me demande de la MD d’un air entendu alors que je n’ai pris que de l’alcool 😁
Interesting bonus: fans talking about The Doctor as a whole (not specific regens) will have to get familiar with gender neutral pronouns.
But the Doctor’s emails!

There’s a power cut in my tower block. The room where the engineer can fix it has an electronic lock. It’s broken. Cos there’s a power cut.
I mean, if isolating you from the world was the problem of VR/AR, sharing what you see with everyone is certainly a solution.
The page in question hijacked scrolling so I never went far enough to notice it was interactive WebGL 😒
Que fait la @PoliceNationale ? Elle fait ça. Courage @AubergeMigrants 💪
ME:Andromeda didn’t close properly last time and I was almost spared the remaining 8 hrs of trial(s) but Origin eventually figured it out 😕
You may want to install that iOS 10.3.3 update ASAP if you don’t want a remote takeover of your phone via WiFi
I like Ansel (was afraid it wouldn’t have gamepad support, it does) but why the hell does moving the camera a bit reset its roll.
Very disappointed with the results of his Schrodinger’s test

Vivement qu’on interdise les moteurs à combustion dans les villes putain de scooters de livraison de bouffe.
Pour une fois je pars de Bonne-Nouvelle avec de la place dans mon sac pour un stock de ginger ale M&S.

Cleopatra lived closer in time to today than she did to the building of the Great Pyramid.
I laughed so hard at this I almost choked on my own saliva. THAT CAT’S FACE OMFG.
Watching a Beyond: Two Souls playthrough; I couldn’t have endured the bad parts — or the gameplay at all, really — but it has some fantastic moments.
I find it so depressing — in its symbolic appropriateness — that Apple went from “Mac vs. PC” to “The Rock × Siri” in less than a decade.
‘hi, yeah my name is Naomi, I’m calling about the, uh, job listing you have up on craigslist?’
I now have a small white spot on my 3½-year-old rMBP’s screen and I strongly suspect it overheated one night after failing to go to sleep when closed.
When people watch this 24-year old mega-blockbuster, they point and laugh at the totally obvious disappearing raptor on each viewing, ya?

Not that Oculus Home is all that great but the dedicated button to get back there is the only one that pretty much always works.
Je sais que c’est idiot de tweeter ça le jour de Valérian, mais — ouhlala, Ghost in the Shell, quel gâchis d’un joli production design (et rien d’autre).

J’aime beaucoup l’idée, et le script, de Colossal mais je ne peux pas m’empêcher de penser que le film est un peu raté sur les bords 😕
This station has kind of a brutalist, vintage mars colony feel so it’s hard to explain how comfortably proportioned it all feels?

I’m playing The Surge’s demo and I kinda want to buy it just for its prologue. But the gameplay that follows isn’t encouraging.
Bloodborne may have ruined my appreciation for Dark Souls and other Souls-likes because of how much quicker and lighter its combat feels.
