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.

On pourrait inventer un sac besace qui se porte à la ceinture pour les gens qui transpirent beaucoup ? NON CA SERAIT PAS UN SAC BANANE.

Quand la caissière de Naturalia a désactivé l’antivol des fèves de cacao j’ai réalisé que j’aurais peut-être dû regarder le prix d’abord.

Microsoft needs to license the technology from Huanshi’s MyIdol app for the Xbox Live avatars. It’s just too good.

Am I really gonna have to buy a wifi-enabled camera and use its shitty app just because Apple’s Lightning camera adapter only works on iPad?

Buying a digital camera is so hard. There are multiple brands to choose from! It’s anarchy!

RT @charlesarthur: Remember that amazing chase and final fight in Bourne Ultimatum? Paul Greengrass describes how and why in pictures: [dga.org]

En fait, Instagram m’a filé la flemme de peaufiner une prise de vue tout autant que Twitter m’a désappris à écrire un vrai texte.

21 avril

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.

Wow, I submitted an iTunes Connect bug and it was fixed in five days. It would almost encourage me to post more (but not really).

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 @Colossal: New Urban Geodes on the Streets of L.A. by Paige Smith [thisiscolossal.com] [pic.twitter.com]

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.

“Dialogue by Orson Scott Card.” I bet that’s why the woman in The Dig keeps protesting “I don’t need to be rescued,” then needs to be rescued. Because aren’t feminists funny.

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?

A Qi iPhone case without the usual chin

Are they using a counterfeit Lightning connector, or is there finally a smaller option officially available?

DomiNations for iOS is everything you expected from Godus minus the fancy terraforming. The pinnacle of free-to-play city-building Skinner boxes.

Tous ces salauds qui ont des balcons avec vue sur un parc. La tête au bout d’une pique.

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.

Love seeing Anna Friel but American Odyssey’s story makes me uncomfortable. Doing straight-up government and/or military conspiracy in this day and age feels a bit irresponsible.

Où sont les distributeurs de Twix de nuit ? #parislanuit

Musique excellente à la Scream toute la nuit alors forcément on tombe en dessous de vingt mecs sur le dancefloor. Parisiens têtes de chien.

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.

My other try-on was the $150 Leather Loop, and that one is lovely.

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?

Well, it definitely is a lovely object. Taptic Engine is great; not a fan of how freely the crown turns, but I’m sure you get used to it.

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.

RT @jarodinou: Je peux regarder cette vidéo sur les guépards en boucle et pendant des heures. C’est tellement f**kin’ beau. [vimeo.com]

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.)
