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

@bgolus:

We shipped Planetary Annihilation on Win, Mac, and Linux. Linux uses we’re a big vocal part of the Kickstarter and forums.

In the end they accounted for <0.1% of sales but >20% of auto reported crashes and support tickets (most gfx driver related).

Would totally skip Linux. [twitter.com]

Watch them rush an iPhone XSE to market before summer.

@ow:

TBH if you want people to upgrade maybe don’t make their phone run slower when it’s old bc they’ll be pissed when they find out

Did Mojave change the way windowed apps get activated when you switch desktops? It’s making me crazy with keeping keyboard focus on the full-screen browser when I’m switching away from it. Or did I just not use full-screen apps before?

@Freerunnering:

I don’t worry another tech company will beat Apple. I worry Apple chasing endless growth will implode the company’s ability to make sensible decisions.

You can’t grow endlessly, and Apple is already making more money than some countries!

@Freerunnering:

If you double an object every year, you get bigger than the earth sooner than you’d think.

If you keep trying to “grow” your profits every year. Eventually your target is to have more money than exists on earth.

This must be the fourth time I have to emergency-delete my Tinder account because I accidentally super-liked someone it would be embarrassing for me to super-like 🙄

Doctor Who 12x00 — 4/10

It’s a shame that the first woman Doctor had to be associated with a return to the kind of story plotting that made the show’s heyday in the 1960s, but doesn’t work so well in today’s television.

Je suis globalement assez content de retourner en cours lundi, mais beaucoup moins de passer à nouveau six semaines à n’avoir que l’école, l’école, l’école. Il faut vraiment que je me trouve une vie en-dehors. Mais je n’ai jamais été très doué en trouvage de vie.

J’ai trouvé le moyen de bouffer du raisin à m’en rendre malade un quatre janvier.

Counterpart 2x03 — 7/10

As much as I like J.K. Simmons, boy does the show become more enjoyable when it centers around Olivia Williams instead.

Counterpart 2x04 — 7/10

@mgsiegler:

I mean what on earth is going on over at Apple? Not the bend thing, but creating such a page to explain the bend thing.

It’s like if Tim Cook went out of his way for no reason to say Apple’s earnings are off because of so many people replacing their batteries… [twitter.com]

Counterpart 2x05 — 9/10

I’ve been busy, so tonight is my first real stay in Forza Horizon’s winterland and, like in summer, the roads are way too grippy [for the way they look]. If even the driving model becomes boring I guess I should consider myself done with the franchise?

@alexhern:

The most depressing thing about the widespread belief that Facebook and Instagram spy on users with their mic for advertising is that no-one I know who believes it has actually responded by deleting those apps from their phones

@alexhern:

The lesson Facebook is taking from this can’t be healthy. “People already believe you are several times worse than you actually are, yet they carry on using your products anyway, so frankly, you may as well go hog wild on privacy abuses, because it clearly won’t scare them away”

@DaveWoodX:

I think a huge takeaway from today’s Apple announcement (putting iTunes movies and TV on Samsung TVs) is that tvOS is now effectively dead. At least for non-video apps. They just cut their possible customer base for the Apple TV in half. #tvosdev

I don’t want an HTC headset but I just want those things sitting on a shelf as mood lights

Premier réveil à huit heures de l’année, alors que je n’ai pas réussi à dormir avant deux heures, immédiatement l’envie de tout plaquer juste pour faire la grasse matinée.

@ItsHopeLowie:

C’est pas Netflix qui tue le cinéma français mais tous les clichés RACISTES que vous y brassez depuis des décennies. On en a marre de voir des bobos parisiens blancs découvrir les banlieusards et se rendre compte qu’ils sont sauvages, sexistes, arriérés mais gentils dans le fond. [twitter.com]

@LibyaLiberty:

Today…wipes tear..today, Twitter did good work. Maybe some of the finest on record. Today, you made us proud.

#dnd tip to all gnome players out there: if you cast Reduce on yourself, you’ll only weigh ~5 lb, so you can fly by grabbing yourself by the collar with Mage Hand. Great for dramatic getaways.

@alexhern:

Kids were more likely to rack up huge bills on their parents credit cards if the game presented the most expensive items first. Not just because it’s in front of them, but also because the figures are so high that they don’t think they’re real money.

While playing Forza Horizon 4 without much enthusiasm I suddenly remembered how much I miss Driveclub VR and I just might have to take my PSVR out of its closet.

is this actually how DOS era joysticks worked?!?!

@MathnSkating:

Harassment for using phones is real. I look at my phone out of habit, even while using VoiceOver. Because it’s a habit to look at the object I’m interacting with.

I’ve been screamed at, physically hit, and had my picture taken without permission for using my phone in public. [twitter.com]

iPhone revenue down 15% year over year while services revenue up 19%. Apple’s revenue growth now dependent on rent seeking with its 30% cut of IAPs & charging you for iCloud storage.

These aren’t customer-centric incentives versus selling more phones 🤔[9to5mac.com]

Le nouveau comic Buffy n’a visiblement pas les droits pour utiliser les traits des acteurs dont les personnages étaient morts à la fin de la série ; les voir apparaître avec des visages génériques, c’est comme si Whedon les tuait une nouvelle fois 😥︎ #thebody
