Bienvenue ! Vous vous rappelez les blogs ? A une époque, ce site en était un. Maintenant, c’est surtout une archive de mes multiples comptes Twitter.

27 octobre

RT @drance: MagSafe was a top-ten Apple-at-its-best invention for me. A huge, tiny thing that you immediately couldn’t imagine living without. RIP.

RT @dmoren: There are no or rose gold MacBook Pros so Apple can roll them out next year to fill time in the event where they don’t update the Mac Pro.

Assuming I find a decent text editor, the app I’d miss the most on Windows is Tweetbot. And Twitter’s not a good reason for anything.

RT @danielpunkass: I don’t think it’s fair that ESC got swept out with the rest of the Function Keys. It doesn’t pass the same test for low use as others.

My next computer purchase was always gonna be a VR/gaming PC but tonight for the first time that thought just makes me glad.

Well, not ‘glad’.

“So we’ve got a 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar and a 13-inch MacBook Pro without a Touch Bar expressly designed to cannibalize the MacBook Air which still exists.” NOTHING ABOUT THIS MAKES SENSE.

Some of the Touch Bar demos were cool, but they all showed stuff that would be a million times more useful if the touch-sensitive area was, like, you know, an entire screen.

RT @tapbot_paul: Why didn’t they make that Touch Bar the same height as the keys? Looks like plenty of space.

RT @SteveStreza: Apple: “You can stop looking at your art and drag your finger across a tiny screen to change colors.”


RT @ow: the switch to USB C is gonna hurt, but i’m glad apple’s doing it, otherwise we’ll never get there []

Okay, the customizable control strip and instant user switching with Touch ID are cool. (The latter is long overdue on iPad.)

RT @BenBajarin: Apple’s vision of touch on a Mac is to add the benefits of touch closer to where you fingers actually are when you work.


RT @philletourneau: I’d have thought all you grumpy old-school ppl would like that fact that you can keep your hands on the keyboard instead of using the mouse.

RT @marcoarment: Touch Bar might end up being really cool, but we’ll have to see in practice. Seems weird to constantly look down at your keyboard.

RT @jesse_squires: They always say “the best iPhone ever made” — not “the best iOS ever made” 🤔

RT @cwarzel: a quick thought about Twitter killing Vine: i think you can look to this statement by Twitter early this month (which was overlooked!)

RT @thedextriarchy: Yes! A retro-futuristic series that’s essentially a smarmy, narrowly technophobic version of The Twilight Zone.

RT @thedextriarchy: Has anybody made a Black Mirror parody that’s just a series of alarmist dystopian yarns about now-mundane pieces of 20th-century tech?

Deleting my Twitter until each and everyone of you has posted or retweeted their own different yet identical “Apple lost its AirPods” joke.

26 octobre

Instagram Stories still doesn’t remember your choice of brush and ink. It’s not like people make wildly different art from day to day.

A double-digit percentage of Google Assistant’s daily fun facts arrive in the wrong order

I’d complain that people won’t know how to remove you from a needless group reply but they never did anyway.

RT @rgriff: Preparing for the demise of the Escape key…10.12 vs 10.12.1. []

RT @darrenrovell: Taco Bell in the U.K. is now selling a quesadilla filled with melted Kit Kats instead of cheese (H/T @BillyGrenham)

RT @CraigGrannell: Android/iOS Pinball fans, grab PinOut when it shows up tomorrow: [] • Gorgeous endless pinball from the future.

Google, going for the iPhone’s jugular, cloned a 3-year-old design. Microsoft, going after the Mac, makes every creative’s dream computer 😮

RT @aegies: Microsoft bringing a comic creator on stage is also really fucking smart.

RT @danielpunkass: Apple’s response for creative professionals: “No more pesky function keys!”

Microsoft showing Apple a thing or two about making a desirable computer. Damn.

Surface Studio very smartly and efficiently aimed at the creative professionals who are more and more disappointed with Apple.

Funny how the new Surface Book is thicker in the middle, but keeps the appearance of a gap on the sides.

Note that Microsoft already has ready-to-use inside-out positional tracking algorithms, with HoloLens.

Did they really announce $300 VR headsets (sans positional tracking I assume) in ten seconds and move on?

I was making the argument to a friend yesterday that good old productivity apps were gonna move to 3D and VR (more significantly than this).

RT @jkottke: Twitter’s “What’s happening?” prompt sounds more and more frantic as the year progresses.

I don’t know how useful it can be in real (adult) life but would you believe that Microsoft Paint 3D is legitimately cool.

Je trouvais bien que c’était une blague étonnamment geek, même pour une série qui parle de robots et jeux vidéo.

Oh. Ohhh. Même en entendant la réplique “go black hat with me” je n’ai pas immédiatement réalisé que black-hat / white-hat venait des westerns.

I knew to stop at the first hint of nausea, but it never got anywhere near that.

That damn wetware is so fiddly.

I powered through tracking issues on my last PSVR sessions because I was just mildly uncomfortable, but it’s killed any urge to play again.

The “Move selected messages to Junk” icon is an odd thing to change in a .1 release but nice timing—started using it recently and it sucked.

25 octobre

RT @emarley: I’m a little nervous about the availability of a key which is in command-option-escape being software-controlled. #Rumors

I was wondering how unreliable the touch bar would be in Boot Camp, but if it is powered by its own CPU it could pretend to be a keyboard.

Also this better be a shitty mockup from an intern because everything’s off-center vertically, in addition to the odd margin on ‘Cancel’.

RT @tapbot_paul: The Escape key is a relic of the Patriarchy. Why would I ever want to escape Apple? Apple is Mother, Apple is Father.

I’ll get my complaint in early: the completely invisible Touch ID sensor (slash power button, presumably) is, once more, design over UX.

RT @rhtkth: This isn’t an opinion. It’s design. Same reason paraph headers have a bigger padding between them than the lines in the paragraph.

RT @rhtkth: Whitespace, whether in the form of an opening bracket line or a blank line after a method declaration makes code more readable. Period.

People are complaining about the iOS update asking for their passwords, but neither of my devices did. Have I gotten a fake update?

RT @micahflee: If you’re running Mac OS X Sierra, upgrade to the 10.12.1 now. It’s vulnerable too []

RT @micahflee: Upgrade to iOS 10.1 right now. It fixes a remote code execution vulnerability that’s exploited by getting you to open a malicious JPEG.

There’s a good chance that the Watch’s redeeming feature, fitness tracking, was pushed by Cook himself, for instance.

24 octobre

Mac mini’s major GPU glitches appeared a couple days ago, and just disappeared with 10.12.1.

I suspected / hoped it was software but this is too good to be true.

RT @noahmccormack: If you ask leading AI people about perpetuating implicit bias, they appear not to be able to comprehend the question

Ca me fascine vraiment, d’un point de vue humain, Trump qui est prêt à mettre son pays à feu et à sang plutôt que d’admettre pouvoir perdre.

I went to the outside and survived AMA

23 octobre

RT @WickedGood: So maybe it’s not Apple isn’t interested, but they fundamentally don’t understand gaming and iOS games have been successful despite them.

RT @WickedGood: Those are three pretty significant failures in gaming since iOS was released, and they all took a significant amount of effort to implement.

RT @WickedGood: Apple positioned the Apple TV as a gaming console but required Siri remote control at launch and didn’t pack in a gamepad so no games sold.

RT @WickedGood: Apple built Metal into macOS but I still can’t play Overwatch on my year-old MacBook Pro, and it can barely run XCOM 2.

RT @WickedGood: Apple’s built Game Center, which has been terrible since the beginning and somehow got worse.

22 octobre

RT @dbreunig: “It’s remarkable that virtually an entire co’s product line has been turned into a botnet that is attacking the US.”

RT @meropemills: NY Times Critic Pans Show After Accidentally Watching First Two Episodes Out of Order [] via @mediaite

21 octobre

This could’ve been a chance to find out whether our annus horribilis was better or worse without Twitter. But not with PSN being down too 😨

Okay, the controllers and an audience willing to pay $60 for a game.

20 octobre

Mais qui a décidé que Wolverine pouvait porter un film solo (et encore moins trois) ?

RT @weird_hist: As a breed, corgies date back over 1,000 years. So this medieval battle scene could be accurate. []

C’est quoi ce bordel de rayon de chocolats de Noël un 20 octobre ? Ils se sont trompés en commandant le stock de Halloween ?

Si on supprimait complètement le klaxon des voitures, là, comme ça, est-ce qu’il y aurait le moindre accident supplémentaire ?

RT @LeReilly: Le trailer de la switch, une vision dark de la vie d’adulte où tu essayes de jouer quand tu peux mais y’a toujours un truc pour te déranger.

No touchscreen? That thing better be cheap. Anyway, good name, good concept, and the removable controllers would be too fiddly for the public if they weren’t backed by Nintendo’s brand power.

19 octobre

RT @prostheticknowl: Dynamic projection mapping onto deforming non-rigid surface: Impressive tech demo from @IshikawaLab

I don’t see anyone else mention the specific tracking issues I have with Driveclub VR, yet can’t imagine how they’d be specific to me ಠ_ಠ

RT @fafner: The macOS crash report is a document based app? 🙃 []

That kind of bullshit could very well be the end of Amazon for electronics and computer sales.

RT @kylebrussell: Being a VR early adopter can be… weird []

18 octobre

RT @McHenryJD: Rory Gilmore doesn’t know how to hold everyday objects, a series []

I really hope it’s because PSVR is flawed and its experiences shallow, rather than me just being old and perpetually dissatisfied.

The one thing I didn’t anticipate is how quickly, and how strongly, having access to VR makes me impatient to get better VR.

TIL you can’t use your PC account in the Xbox version of Elite, so I’m not impatient for a PSVR port anymore. I am not starting over.

RT @HelenaRiches: Think you’re having a bad day? Spare a thought for contractors who set off fire system at Oklahoma National Guard…

RT @haydencd: Open-world games are elaborate model train sets for the digital age.

I’ve been having tracking issues all day and now that I’ve taken the headset off it feels weird that the real world isn’t floating about.

And anyone who complains about Arkham VR’s length is “part of the problem.” So beautiful, so well made, a master class in narrative gaming in VR.

Not the most memorable game, but Wayward Sky is well worth experiencing for the way it plays with scale.

Un moment de flottement quand je me retrouve face à l’hologramme taille réelle de Robin dans Arkham VR 😳

Rez’s Area 5 is the only one that really works for me in VR. Area X’s particle effects suffer too much from low res. Also, too swoopy. Ick.

RT @emmaggarland: for anybody who has claimed this week that the legal system is designed to protect victims of sexual assault:

Between the mess of pixels that is Driveclub and the lack of a proper Tilt Brush, I’m more impatient than ever to get a PC.

Disappointed that the lap times in Driveclub’s career haven’t been updated to be achievable with hardcore handling enabled.

Limited as it is (and why is the included music so terrible?), Harmonix’s Easel is proof that Tilt Brush is VR’s killer app for me.

Chewing gum allowed me to play the Battlezone demo but Here They Lie is still impossible. Pity.

15 octobre

Y’a encore des tonnes de gens partout dans les rues c’est horrible mais que fait la police 😱

Is there a schematic somewhere explaining why moving the PSVR forward doesn’t make the picture look smaller but only changes FoV? #optics

RT @jephjacques: Randy Munroe shared with me perhaps the greatest sequence of bird photos ever taken []

14 octobre

RT @Sci_Phile: The Extraordinary Details of Tiny Creatures Captured with a Laser-Scanning Microscope by Igor Siwanowicz

Speaking of Thumper, the bass on the PSVR’s included earbuds is really good. Wonder how expensive Sony’s retail equivalent is.

I’m saving Area X for another day and it’s supposed to be amazing, but so far Thumper unexpectedly outshines replaying Rez in VR.

Thumper. Jesus fuckinh christ, guys. Thumper in VR. Mouth agape from beginning to end (successful first run, natch).

On s’approche dangereusement du stade où la déception est mathématiquement inévitable

Driveclub and Rez are no-brainers but the question is: Batman or Job Simulator or both?

Trying to resist the urge to download every single PSVR game while I wait for my package to be delivered.

RT @eurogamer: PSVR’s cinema mode works with Xbox One, PC, Mac and Wii U - but there’s a big catch. Digital Foundry tests it out.

Trying to figure out why my site screws up the names of uploaded files and oh my god are you kidding me

13 octobre

The iPhone could do the same for all I know (though I don’t remember Apple ever bragging about single-shot HDR?) but the technique’s interesting anyway.


Whoa, icon labels? Is Snapchat about to give up on bad UX?
