@Freerunnering:

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.

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.

Au moins comme ça l’équipe de footballeurs ne pourra pas m’enfermer dans mon casier.

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

@jsnell:

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.

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?

Fast Company: Apple’s new watch face “is an insult to the user’s cognitive load”.

Traditional luxury watchmakers: Hold my beer.

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 😕

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.

Damn

Mind you, this makes the Xr an even better value proposition — with a wide-angle sensor like this, who needs a shitty second camera.

This has been happening a lot the last couple of months (Series 0, no betas involved), and considering their track record you can hardly blame me for assuming Apple published a software update that broke this or all widgets on older devices and doesn’t give a shit.

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.

Maybe the reason they discouraged and rarely hid the notch after iPhone X was announced was in the knowledge they were going to release an LCD with a notch. [twitter.com]

@DazeEnd:

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. 🤦‍♂️

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.

I love that Playground decided it couldn’t portray the English countryside in Horizon without developing destructible drystone wall technology.

@cabel:

i’m running for office on a single issue: Ban All Amazon Third Party Sellers. vote for me

The driving model feels more arcadey than I remember, though. Or have I just played too much Dirt Rally?

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.

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

This year’s iPhone prices: $750, $1,000 and $1,100.

#AppleEvent

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.

“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?”

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

2018: Default lock-screen wallpaper, used in all product shots, hides the notch.
