Hi! Do you remember blogs? Well, this used to be one. Now it just serves as an archive for my multiple Twitter accounts.
I’m laughing so hard at this slide a friend sent me from one of Geoff Hinton’s courses;
“To deal with hyper-planes in a 14-dimensional space, visualize a 3-D space and say ‘fourteen’ to yourself very loudly. Everyone does it.”
Huh, TIL you can adjust exposure compensation in iOS’ camera by swiping up and down after setting the focus point.
I know it’s not done, that it’s a really hard problem, and that it’s “handy” to have Home etc in Mojave, but it’s all just so wrong.
Remember how we all laughed and laughed at Microsoft because Windows 8 had “tablet” apps & “native”/old apps?
How is this better/different?
ENOUGH WITH THE ENTERTAINMENT SURVEYS. List five films, list three films, list ten theme songs- THIS IS THE SHIT THEY DO WITH SENIOR CITIZENS IN A REST HOME TO SPARK THEIR MEMORY.
J’ai regardé la saison entière de Disenchanted parce que le buzz assurait que les trois derniers épisodes étaient meilleurs, et ce n’est pas totalement faux mais ça ne méritait pas vraiment le déplacement.
This Labor Day, when someone pulls out Monopoly, remind them that the game was stolen by Parker Bros. from a woman anarchist who had built a game around cooperation. That miserable, cutthroat ending of every playthrough? That was the loss condition in the original version.
Pourquoi quand on fait la bise, c’est toujours ceux qui en font le plus qui gagnent ?
Genre je fais deux bises à une meuf, elle me sort “Ah non chez moi c’est trois hi hi” j’ai juste envie de répondre “Oui bah chez moi c’est deux donc range ta mâchoire Chantal merci bien.”
Hey, Sony, it’s your responsibility to make sure games don’t waste hundreds of MBs of online space, and eat the cost of those that do — not mine to sort through an endless list of game saves to free up space when my PS4 starts hiding sync errors in the Notifications menu.
Nothing to see here…
Everything is fine
Linus Torvalds: I don’t believe in “user experience” or “graphical interfaces”. The best way for anyone to perform complex operations is through a command line or an editor, preferably something with arcane multi-key combos.

God of War III is free on PSN+ this month and I figured I’d just play it for two minutes in memory of the good old days (although I remember having more fun with the first one) — but I forgot that game was not easy to put down.
OMG, these are so dope! 🔥🔥

I was gonna buy legit art prints online but the site invited me to sign up with Facebook then asked me for my e-mail address and a password anyway so I’ll just use Google Images and a cheap printer thank you fuck off.
Before eating this chocolate-y confection, inject butterscotch liqueur directly into its center. The chocolate part, the brigadiero, was popularized in Brazil in the 1940s. The eyedropper of South African liqueur was later added by confectioners, making the treat “interactive.”
Pleased my headline/image combo got through
I’ve disabled most categories of iCloud sync on my second Mac (including “Mail”) but it still refuses to delete a mail account without removing it from all my Macs.

Je vais encore mettre un mois entier à intégrer que la température s’est rafraîchie et que si je ne ferme pas ma fenêtre j’ai envie de dormir toute la journée 🤦🏻♂️
Shadow of the Colossus, but instead of killing huge creatures, you heal them. You climb up on an almost dead colossus to reach a spot where you can insert healing magic and the further along you are with healing, the harder it gets to stay on because the thing is moving again.
Today in Ridiculously Polished Video Games: Spider-Man seamlessly switches between two different vocal takes depending on whether or not he’s exerting himself
Men communicate in a “one-up” manner, in which a man makes a statement to another, that positions himself “above” the other person, through playful teasing, boasting, firm assertions etc. He expects the other person to restore the balance also through teasing, boasting, etc
Women do the opposite. They position themselves “one-down” by complimenting the other person, self-deprecating, expressing uncertainty, etc. they expect the other person to restore the balance by returning a compliment, self-deprecation, etc.
Toute la journée, la fachosphère va répéter sur ses réseaux que l’agresseur au couteau de hier soir était Afghan.
Ce qu’ils ne diront pas, c’est que les mecs qui l’ont stoppé à coup de boules de pétanque s’appellent Boujema Hamani (photo) et Reda Smain.
One of the most horrifying things I’ve ever seen. 🌍🔥

Will have to see it in person but the Watch’s new super-rounded edges make it look sooo much better.
2017: Dear developers, please don’t hide the notch in your apps.
2018: Default lock-screen wallpaper, used in all product shots, hides the notch.
Me, every birthday in my Jony Ive voice: “Simply put, never before have I been as old as I am this year. Unprecedented. This is the oldest I have ever been.”
“Les crs ne sont pas nos fils !
Signé : Les putes”
The nightmare for operators is that your phone pops up each Monday morning telling you who has the cheapest data this week, and automatically switches the virtual SIM, and you use your actual PSTN phone number so little (thanks to messaging apps) that you don’t care if it changes
“Oh yeah no one needs 3D Touch anyway. And you don’t really need two cameras to do Portrait mode. What have you idiots been buying from us all this time?”
This lineup is positively absurd. The only proper reason not to buy the Xr is that it doesn’t look as good with the bigger bezel. I suppose economies of scale are involved but it’s insane that it has the same CPU as Xs.
Last year’s iPhone prices: $700, $800 and $1,000.
This year’s iPhone prices: $750, $1,000 and $1,100.
Apple can finally add new screen resolutions to iOS devices without expecting developers to recompile their apps every time. Size classes & resizability finally paying off
Apple’s decision to change the larger iPhone naming convention to Max could mean we’ll see an iPhone Mini soon.
Max / Mini makes more sense than Plus / Minus
Looks like Forza Horizon 4 has dialed down the obnoxiousness and walked back the structural changes that both made me give up on Horizon 3. Glad to have a good driving game again to burn off stress at the end of the day—I’m gonna need it come October.
The driving model feels more arcadey than I remember, though. Or have I just played too much Dirt Rally?
i’m running for office on a single issue: Ban All Amazon Third Party Sellers. vote for me
I love that Playground decided it couldn’t portray the English countryside in Horizon without developing destructible drystone wall technology.
I’d decided to try as many custom songs as I could (it’s easier now that there’s a Delete button right in Beat Saber) but there’s so much crap coming out every day — the prospect of going through a bunch of bad maps, even for ten seconds, actually began to sour me on the game.
Apple (to consumers): “Most apps are free!”
Also Apple (to developers): “Get your apps ready for the new hardware!”
Me: Umm… I think I’m going to opt out. Thanks anyway. 🤦♂️
Là, je pense que c’est un pari entre développeurs complètement bourrés, je ne vois pas d’autre explication
C’est arrivé à République que je me suis rappelé que le pass gratuit était pour la soirée de demain et que quitte à oayer j’aurais pu partir de chez moi deux heures plus tard et ne pas me retrouver — encore, toujours — dans un club vide 🤦🏻♂️
Un club gay qui laisse entrer autant de couples hétéro peut-il survivre ou est-il condamné à devenir ringard ? Vous avez deux heures.
Quand j’étais jeune je me demandais si je deviendrais une vieille conne qui trouve les jeunes mal élevés.
En fait maintenant c’est les vieux que je trouve incroyablement malpolis et croyez-moi si vous voulez mais : quand j’étais jeune, il y avait de meilleurs vieux.
Une soirée au Gibus normale, avec bousculade permanente, 20% de la salle qui danse à un instant t, victime collatérale d’un verre dans la gueule sans qu’il vienne à l’idée de personne de s’excuser, et un mégot au fond de mon rhum-coca. 8/10 would hate humanity again.
Retweet this if your retirement plan is basically “Civilization will probably crumble before I’m 65 and money will be meaningless anyway.”
I did a thing to convince myself the XS MAX 512 GB wasn’t so expensive
Laurent Garnier pour une première Concrete, ou l’assurance absolue qu’aucune autre ne sera jamais aussi bien, c’est très pratique.
Jokes are such a weird thing to exist… it’s like the brain going “Ohoho, you fooled my branch predictor? I’ll give you some nice neurotransmitters for that”
I appreciate the honesty.
Shortcuts is out and my playlist-launching shortcuts still make the Today widget crash (because they take too much time and/or memory) 😒
Well, at least the app itself’s main screen makes it much easier to launch shortcuts than Workflow did.
Mind you, this makes the Xr an even better value proposition — with a wide-angle sensor like this, who needs a shitty second camera.
I bet the Xs is gonna go back to cropping the wide-angle shot instead of using the telephoto when the setting is a little dark, in cases where the X would have used the telephoto camera.
People complain that Horizon 4 is too hard with a steering wheel, and I find the new handling too easy on a controller, so I figured I’d try, but somehow my gas pedal doesn’t work in the game—yet the brake does.
And I really don’t enjoy how the game feels on gamepad 😕
Fast Company: Apple’s new watch face “is an insult to the user’s cognitive load”.
Traditional luxury watchmakers: Hold my beer.
The rumors and speculation on the subject seem to have died down, but wouldn’t the Xs/Xr mess of a lineup make a lot more sense if the Xs was — or had been intended to be — compatible with the next Pencil?
Maybe the most bananas thing I’ve learned about iPhone XS is that if you shoot 4K 30fps video, it actually shoots 60fps with every other frame stepped up/down, and then stitches the frame pairs together on the fly to create extended dynamic range.
400 € de Leroy-Merlin et Ikea cette semaine en mode “j’élimine autant de points de friction que possible de ma vie quotidienne en prévision de la rentrée.” Maintenant je n’ai plus qu’à brûler ma CB et bouffer des feuilles mortes.
N’empêche, je n’ai pas de regrets sur la partie “omg vous n’imaginez pas le confort que c’est de pouvoir prendre une douche à peu près à la température qu’on veut.”
It’s 1992. A time traveler pops into the campaign bus of these young Americans and says “Three of you will win the popular vote and only one of you will become President.”
People are really struggling with the fact that the XS series iPhone’s mount the SIM card the opposite way to previous models. This is like the 3rd one I’ve seen, including one who is trying to demand credit from Telstra for the inconvenience of a faulty launch model
Drone caught the exact moment when dolphins and whales are playing. Magical moment!!!!
Many people think diversity and inclusion is an additive process (add more “diverse” people) when really it’s a subtractive process (remove the hostile people).

Ironically, Marzipan is pretty much exactly the same strategy as Microsoft’s UMP, which everyone cited as an example for Apple to follow. The difference is that Win32 apps do deserve to die.
I never wanted ‘iOS apps on Mac’ I wanted ‘UIKit on mac’.
Like how UIKit powers: iOS, WatchOS, and tvOS.
But they have different UI designs and input mechanisms.

If there are any doubts about how income has been getting redistributed to the top (especially the very top) from the bottom and middle for decades, here are some charts to burn into your brain.
If you think it’s wrong to take from some to give to others, then look up, not down.
Everything is awful so I added tap dancing noises to this.
I was really surprised to find out recently that XXX was widespread because I could have sworn — still could almost swear — I’d started using it, decades ago, without any external influence.
Aww, Ubisoft is so cute, setting up a free weekend for The Crew 2 right as Forza Horizon 4 comes out.
We asked @cher to go #BehindTheTweets to tell us what all those emojis really mean because, well, Cher-ing is caring. 😉
If there’s one feature I wish Twitter had it isn’t editing tweets, it’s being able to reply to a friend’s retweet to that friend and not the original Tweeter.
I’ve been assaulted. I’ve also been not assaulted. The difference didn’t seem to be what I was wearing, how flirty I was, how much I was drinking. The only difference seemed to be whether or not the men felt it was ok or not to assault.
