I love this - obviously the timespan is hugely compressed but it’s so easy to think of space as this static thing, when it is anything but [twitter.com]

@broderick:

I’m so glad we let tech platforms eat the journalism industry.

Now, I can sit and watch a live stream of Notre Dame burning while YouTube’s fake news widget tells me about 9/11 for some reason.

@axelsimon:

Well, crap. This is a (technical) reality we need to adjust to, and a (political) reality we need to do something about. [twitter.com]

Je veux bien que le film fasse exprès de ne pas être joli mais il n’y a pas d’excuses pour cette ignominie.

Finally looked at why my transactional emails’ attachment icons didn’t show up on Mac. Started suspecting I was doing something wrong when I couldn’t find any complaints on Google.

Turns out Mail messes up a bit if you put your message inside a <table height=100%>.

@Carnage4Life:

It’s wild that Twitter is quite swift at taking down tweets that offend big media copyright holders even from verified entities but death threats to @IlhanMN sit untouched for weeks.

Never forget that addressing abuse isn’t a hard problem, it’s just one they don’t care about.

Tech enthusiasts: My entire house is smart.

Tech workers: The only piece of technology in my house is a printer and I keep a gun next to it so I can shoot it if it makes a noise I don’t recognize.

Overtone singing is a type of singing in which the singer manipulates the resonances (or formants) created as air travels from the lungs, past the vocal folds, and out of the lips to produce a melody [buff.ly] [source: [buff.ly]]

@austin_walker:

i’m genuinely fucking stoked for this level of total disconnect, this absolute, blatant action figure ideology. it’s not “which of these heroes are you?” but “are you the space fascists or nah?” [twitter.com]

Rian Johnson: Fuck hereditary dynasties. Luke ate children for breakfast. Down with the legacy.

JJ Abrams: Hold my beer.

I still really like Monsters with Attitude

—and I haven’t even managed to completely solve the tracking issues with the Touch controllers yet (although I’ve improved it by… pulling on the battery springs with pliers so they’d get more tension again).

Je viens d’entendre un anglophone prononcer “Ivanhoé” 🤯

iTunes is not going anywhere—not for many, many years. It will remain the only way to organize local libraries and sync devices, because Apple considers local libraries and local sync as deprecated.

How to understand the image of a black hole. Fascinating @veritasium video with an amazing simple physical demo that explains why the ‘Interstellar black hole’ looks the way it does! [youtube.com]

Chaque matin, Stephen, retraité de 72 ans, trouvait ses petits outils laissés sur son atelier rangés dans leur boite…

C’est une camera qui lui révéla qu’il ne devenait pas fou : une souris passait deux heures par nuit à tout remettre dans la boite !

There’s this idea in SV that companies have a right to scale unencumbered. Look around: there are parents teachers police etc moderating most communities in the world — but online the algos rule. [twitter.com]

Battery falling down a hole

Awww la fin de You’re the Worst 😭💜

Bandersnatch didn’t end in a very interesting place, but I enjoyed its metaness more than what I expected from the reactions around here. It’s not like Netflix invented the non-choice in an adventure game, but they made good use of it.

At a friend’s for the weekend; I was going to watch Netflix but the auto-playing trailers sent me into a UX rage spiral. The lack of a setting to disable them is so user-hostile it makes me want to torrent all of their original shows, on principle.

Started AC:Odyssey on a friend’s PS4. Picked Alexios. As soon as he opened his mouth I wanted to change, but I can’t be bothered to play the Leonidas prologue again — so that’s the game sorted, then. (I was never very motivated. Greece doesn’t hold a candle to Egypt.)

@viephemere:

Comment réagir lorsqu’on se fait call out:

- calme toi, ça ne veut pas dire que tu es une horrible personne mais que tu as fait/dit une connerie

- écoute, n’interromp pas ou n’essaie pas de te défendre. Concentre toi pour essayer de comprendre où tu as merdé.

@potch:

There should be a hotline you can call where you can safely pronounce words you’ve only ever read out loud for the first time, and they say “oh sweetie” and kindly explain how it’s pronounced.

“You Are Not Google” is the kind of technical common sense that depressingly frequently loses the battle against developer ego and aspirations. [blog.bradfieldcs.com]

Played some no-arrows Beat Saber for a change (they’ve updated the game while the mod installer is down, so no custom songs) and damn I’d forgotten how intense that was. I’ve gotten rusty.

Also it was easier when the springs in my controllers’ battery compartments were younger.

Have people already pointed out that Marzipan, by introducing desktop paradigms into the codebases of many iOS apps, would make it pretty easy for Apple to introduce an impressively functional version of this in 2020?

I started listening to a story about the Valley of the Kings and immediately became depressed remembering that AC:Origins’ world doesn’t exist in a VR-explorable version.

“The iPhone’s camera used to be a selling point”

I’ve been very impressed by what I saw of the P30 Pro. I mostly use my iPhone for Twitter and Instagram, so I’d actually consider switching if any of my favorite photo editing apps were on Android.
