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

Un des meilleurs épisodes de Game of Thrones depuis longtemps, non ? Ni grosses ficelles ni effets, purement le développement de l’histoire.

Oh, j’oubliais : #branstarkistheworst


Proof that there are no original ideas anymore


Amazing what a cheaper iPad can do to sales. iPad sales up 15% year-over-year, but revenue is only up 2% year-over-year


Pinterest has ruined image search on Google. Tiny pics, no reliable routes to original source, garbage sites. Gah.

All tweets should come with the disclaimer that words were removed and thoughts were simplified in order to tweet <140 characters.


Personally, I would not expect UI layout to change. Status bar would get taller to integrate w/ the cutout. The extra bottom space for Home

Can’t you just see the little Hermès watch face inside the Home button if you own the right Apple Watch? With simulated gold reflections?

Putain de livreurs qui appellent depuis le même genre de numéro chelou que les spammeurs.

Frankenstein de Mary Shelley est (un peu trop long et verbeux mais) tellement plus intéressant que la plupart de ses adaptations.

“Tolerance is not a moral precept”

That’s a great, definitive retort to “so much for the tolerant left.”

Messages in iCloud has been removed from iOS 11 beta 5. Now coming in a future update.

On se passerait généralement bien des scènes de bataille dans Game of Thrones, mais celle-là valait le coup 😲

I feel silly for putting a spoiler warning on something everyone will inevitably know by sundown but it’s about PRINCIPLES, PEOPLE.


A letter from a male Mech-engineer Senior to his female classmates.

“…you and I can’t be equal.”

Ah ben voilà, c’est totalement depuis que je suis passé aux radios de Spotify que je ne suis plus productif !

Reinstalled Swarm. It says I’ve disabled notifications but iOS has no idea the app wants to send them.

Also, got two location prompts in succession — ‘while-in-app’ then ‘background.’ Said no to the second and iOS decided that meant “Never.”


Here endeth the ‘There’s one of these for everything’ joke. [twitter.com]

Word(s) of the day: “crown shyness” - phenomenon whereby individual tree crowns avoid overlap or touch, forming striking canopy patterns.

The card game form seems like a perfect adaptation of Dota for someone who finds the game’s many incarnations too overwhelming to play.

Someone on the Hangouts team plays by their own rules.

Oh, look! It’s the first time Notes’ iCloud sync screws up for me! (I don’t use it all that often though.)

L’air trahi du chat quand je ressors une demi-heure après être arrivé 💔

I’ve just realized out of nowhere how much I miss Driveclub VR. Dirt is awesome but way too intense for me to play for more than twenty minutes at a time… and all the other games are made for hardcore fans who, among other things, don’t care about UX.

I was excited way back when inklings of a partnership between Microsoft and Oculus meant there was a chance the Forza franchise would suddenly sprout stereo vision, but Microsoft’s VR focus now seems to be miles away from the kind of hardware that can run a photorealistic car simulator.

I just can’t imagine putting PSVR back on my head, though.

Alien: Covenant (2017) — 7/10

En coupant un peu d’Alien: Covenant on peut obtenir un bon film de 90 minutes, ce qui était très loin d’être le cas de Prometheus.

Le chat m’entraîne à l’autre bout de l’appart pour que je la caresse au fond de la penderie, où elle peut oublier que le monde existe #goth

Et je ne vous cache pas que c’est bizarre de caresser à l’aveugle l’intérieur ronronnant d’une penderie juste après avoir vu Covenant.

Les années 80, 90, l’an 2000… et tout ce que les générations futures retiendront de nos vies sera “l’avant troisième guerre mondiale” 😞


So, just a quick thread about the word “terrorism” and how it’s kind of dangerous to throw it around even with shit like #Charlottesville

I hope Miracle Merchant gets a “chill” mode where you never run out of ingredients, because that’s a frustrating way to lose


White people always telling everyone else to police their community but yall need to start talking to your racist ass family members.

Je suis sorti avec un T-shirt qui me sert normalement à dormir, du coup je rase les murs au cas où j’aurais raté une tache ou déchirure.

1/9 Note: When Trump says that there were lots of “fine people” at the alt-right rally, he means a very specific thing.

Confirmed: Cloudflare has kicked “The Daily Stormer” off its network. CEO sent this email to staff. Incredible read. [zd.net]

Did Tinder rewrite its app in Unity? I’m pretty sure it used to work fine; now misses swipes and makes my phone burn up.

Right as I finished typing that tweet the screen came back to full brightness to signify the CPU was cooling down a bit.


They aren’t particularly scary, but surprise monsters in Oculus Home to promote a game is a mistake. Home needs to feel safe and inviting.


Zombie and zombie spiders making growling and skittering noises.

Transmit 5’s DockSend regularly plays the “Done!” sound without actually uploading the file. You had one jerb.

I just wanted a simple FTP client that works, not a fancy-pants UI that doesn’t come to the foreground when you click on a window in Mission Control.

I mean the one thing that’d make the game 100x better is a usable manual gearbox, but I’d be a bit sore buying the game again just for that.


No, the moral dilemma is not about the rights of robots. It’s about reinforcement of abusive & nonconsensual ways humans treat each other

Here is a visual representation of the pacing in Game of Thrones.

C’est déprimant, les ombres sont déjà super longues, ça y est on est en hiv… ah, oui, non, je sors petit-déjeuner à 17:00, aussi.

Y’a une connasse de grosse mouche qui marche comme une araignée dans mon champ de vision depuis cinq minutes.

Ca fait deux fois que je vais au Gibus en pensant que ça serait vide et que c’est complètement plein avant 1h. J’étais pas préparé à ça !


Seeing terms like “cuck” and “snowflake” make their way into mainstream vocab, via ironic use first, is disheartening.

He said: “So the Renaissance followed the Romans? What about the part in between?”

I responded: “Oh, you mean the Dark Ages?”


He laughed. “Yeah, when y’all did nothing & much of the world prospered, and eventually you just went & stole everybody’s achievements.”

Tu m’étonnes que le chat passe son temps à lécher l’évier quand elle a soif. Le bol d’eau lui sert à se laver les pattes après la litière.

Mon dieu que cet épisode était mal foutu 😨

Au moins, avec le dialogue de Tyrion sur ce qu’on est censés voir dans les yeux de Jon Snow, tout le monde va bien être obligé de reconnaître que Kit Harington est une endive.

If anything it really compounds the issue of all assistants being female. Female robot is one thing; lifelike woman is much worse.

Wow. Imaginez si ça vous faisait ça avec 95% des films. Des séries. Des livres.

Et du monde réel.

I was importing in Photos and seeing blotches in the title bar and started moving windows around thinking, is my graphics card dying?

It’s now taking almost as long to delete 3,000 photos from my iPhone as it did importing them. (At least my MacBook’s fans calmed down.)

Le Death Note de Netflix est… regardable, mais cent fois moins intéressant ou intelligent que l’anime. A quoi bon ?

Et dire qu’ils ont bâclé la moitié de la saison pour nous infliger cette tannée d’une heure et demie.

Ce que ça doit être frustrant pour GRRM de voir la série gâcher ses twists prévus depuis vingt ans avant qu’il ait pu donner sa version.

Je crois bien qu’il y a un groupe dans l’immeuble qui applaudit GoT comme si c’était du foot 😁

Dear ladies

Today we have curated a collection of appropriate photo responses to unsolicited dick pics and creepy sexual comments.


Evidemment, fin août c’est trop tard pour acheter des petits frères au T-shirt sans manches qui me va bien en boîte 😠 #nomoredancing

Du coup j’ai juste deux nouveaux jeans et Axelle Red dans la tête #shoppingfail


Really cool feature of ARCore is it has multiplayer out of the box. “VPS” helps you interact with other people’s AR!


It’s a daunting task to get AR efficiency and accuracy across hundreds of camera and CPU and IMU combinations. Good luck!

You asked for SUBSURFACE SCATTERING in @unity3d.

Your requests have been heard.

The design Magic Leap was going for as of 2015

Good direction assuming CPU & battery hang on a wire behind the neck.

Web AR experiment running on a Pixel, using ARCore.


And the same Web AR experiment running on an iPad, using ARKit.


Smartphone AR looks so hot on twitter, but the demo underwhelms. VR is the opposite: hard to screen cap, but more impressive in person.

I wonder what happens to iPad design after 2017 iPhone. A notch-shaped thumb rest on a bezel-less tablet wouldn’t be bad.

Oh so now there’s a Dark-Side BB-8 because of course there is 🙄😷


Kinda hope that the evil BB-unit The Last Jedi gets hyped and cut from the movie like C2-B5 did from Rogue One. A new Star Wars tradition.

Et bon retour de vacances !


The web will be key for AR. To kickstart things, we built experimental AR-capable browsers for iOS & Android: [developers.google.com]


Blows my mind that it’s 2017, every functional adult human has a mini computer in their pocket, but we still pass out paper business cards.
