Hi! Do you remember blogs? Well, this used to be one. Now it just serves as an archive for my multiple Twitter accounts.
Awesome — feels like texting Siri.
J’essaie d’ajouter une page “consultance UX” à mon site pro. Il faut mettre du texte dedans. BON SANG MAIS QUE JE DETESTE ME VENDRE.
E-ink is (hopefully) gonna be the one differentiator that allows Pebble to survive, and I can’t see why it wouldn’t work for tablets too.
I’m still waiting for a full-featured tablet/laptop with the same color e-ink as Pebble Time. Several-day battery + usable in sunlight.
RT @lgorithm: “Make any animation half as long as you think it should be. And then possibly halve the timing again” (B. Scott - Designing Web Interfaces)
I feel less guilty for being addicted to DomiNations knowing that its creators were designers and producers at Firaxis.
Never realized that Moleskine was a brand created entirely out of nowhere (and from a French common noun) in 1997. Hail the power of marketing.
Je regrette de ne pas avoir envie et capacité et hétérosexualité de me taper un festival EDM+camping de trois jours sur la “plage de Torcy.”
RT @sethclifford: Guys, super villains don’t just show up. They start as rich members of society and take a turn.
Elon Musk is broadcasting this process.
If I didn’t have rent (and taxes) to pay I’d take a few months off to learn Unity and code a fully Newtonian, zero-assists spaceship sim.
RT @Phastin: The secret backstory of The Lord of the Rings:
Gandalf is trying to get an achievement for taking the Ring to Mordor using only Hobbits.
Am I a nerd if I say that Ant-Man is stupid because if he super-punched a guy when he’s bullet-sized then he’d make a hole—like a bullet?
Are they using a counterfeit Lightning connector, or is there finally a smaller option officially available?
It’s definitely gonna be a good year for Star Wars.
I never watch music videos so I hadn’t thought about the potential for VR: bite-sized experiences that immerse you in the artist’s universe while remaining short enough not to make you sick (and not to completely bankrupt the production company). An actual video game would be hell to design, because you’d have to think very hard about how the music will sync up with the player’s actions, but it totally works if the interactivity is limited to moving your head.
Damnit, my old Wacom’s all screwy in Yosemite. But it’s taken me six months to notice, so it’s hard to justify buying a new one.
I’m a hermit with a roommate. That means I only get to survive until day 2 of the zombie apocalypse.
Redditors having no qualms about calling the stainless-steel model “Apple Watch SS.” But then Chevrolet has used the “SS” badge for decades.
Tibetans had it right. The best political system is to find a child with the desired intrinsic qualities and then raise him to spec.
I took issue with 1984’s unrealistic human behavior, so obviously I’m enjoying Animal Farm a lot more — not the same expectations.
C’est chiant, le week-end. J’ai la flemme de sortir ce soir, mais si je passe la nuit chez moi je vais le regretter toute la semaine.
RT @BenedictEvans: Part of the growth of tech is that it moves beyond purely utilitarian use cases.
Most of Kaguyahime no monogatari is lovely (and so sad), but the silly, pointless ending is a complete waste.
I’m not crazy, I went local only.
Putting on the sport band however is as much of a pain in the ass as I expected, but maybe I’m still missing something obvious?
Elle va certainement arrêter de marcher après trois-quatre jours d’utilisation, mais à ce prix je peux bien en racheter une à chaque fois.
Listening to the latest ATP, and in full agreement with Marco Arment that the Apple Watch would be a better product if it simply didn’t have “apps” — no launcher, just notifications and glances (some of the latter being provided by third-party iPhone apps). Not just because of initial performance issues with WatchKit, but because hunting for an app within that home screen looks to be the nadir of the device’s UX, only compounded by the fact that the display will switch back to the watch face as soon as you drop your wrist.
But even Apple would have trouble selling a $400 device (let alone $1,000 or $10,000) that only displays notifications and glances. It has to have “apps,” even if they turn out to be entirely useless.
Basically all my gripes with the Watch come from Apple’s need to justify its price range — i.e. they stem from Jony Ive’s nouveau-riche urge to create a gold watch. (Yes, I’m bitter because all I’ve wanted for years is a simple, well-designed first-party Pebble - a device that would be honest about what it is.)
My rational brain still rejects the Apple Watch on many grounds, but the buzz on Twitter is putting some damn pressure on my magpie brain.
J’espérais un peu qu’iOS 8.3 ne sortirait jamais pour que je n’aie pas besoin de mettre à jour Uniconsole #flemme #aquoibon
I’m ashamed to say I had never realized before today that “newtonian physics” in a spaceship sim would also apply to rotational inertia.
Oh. Even with assists off, Elite Dangerous enforces speed limits; ships don’t roll nearly fast enough for Battlestar Galactica dogfights.
