I don’t understand the point of Forza Horizon 3’s convoys, except for making most cars spawn in the same class as yours, which looks as silly as in an old GTA.

RT @stroughtonsmith: I have no idea what happens to computing when nobody on earth actually understands the algorithms being used to generate results 😶

Wanna bet there isn’t gonna be another Instagram update until after I’ve gotten used to the placeholder icon?

RT @Paume75: “OVH noyé par une attaque Ddos sans précédent” [zdnet.fr]

And I have no idea how the filters manage to be so slow on an iPhone 6. Is the old OpenGL API running through an emulator or something?

I guess in the next version of macOS they might as well replace the Finder with Windows’ File Explorer.

El Capitan’s related regression was that you couldn’t change the labels on a file while copying it (more of an edge case, I’ll admit)

I deleted a folder while I was moving to another drive a file it contained, in Sierra

RT @JDLDG: Unlikely animal friendships make the world bearable 😍 [pic.twitter.com]

Asking Siri “Show me photos of dogs” should default to a web search, not launch Photos unless you said “my dog” or “my photos.”

There’s something to be said for external power supplies you can easily replace when they crap out. In other news, my old Drobo is alive \o/

I guess it’s pretty convenient that the best way out of this faux-pas was to delete my account.

I MEANT TO SCROLL DOWN ON MY EX’S PROFILE AND IT SUPER-LIKED HIM AND FUCK THIS SHIT I’M DELETING TINDER.

Obviously it doesn’t help that I got a taste of Driveclub VR last week, but I don’t think that’s the whole reason.

Everyone said Forza Horizon 3 was the best car game ever so of course I’m finding the tone and structure less enjoyable than Horizon 2.

27 septembre

“30% installed, but you can start playing right away!”

starts the game

“Forza Horizon 3 needs an update”

I hate this console so much.

Finally found the one place in the Xbox dashboard where the installation progress counter isn’t stuck at 0%, so I guess I’m fine.

I deleted the game to start over and now installation is stalling at 4%. If my Forzabox is dying just before its last hurrah I’m gonna be 😡

Left the Xbox on to install the game and do its thing while I worked. It turned itself off because I was idle and now appears to be stuck 🙄

RT @stroughtonsmith: “New VR Dev Kit From Occipital Turns iPhone Into Room-Scale VR” [uploadvr.com] /via @saniul

Forza Horizon won’t be here until tomorrow and I need to take my mind off PSVR and maybe I should have bought it online even at 20€ more.

Why do Spotify’s song radios always end after a few hours? (It’s always better than Apple Music’s, which just refused to start, but still.)

RT @themadstone: The only winner tonight is the Voyager probe, which is speeding away from the Earth at 17 kilometers/second #debatenight

Bien fait de dormir, rien que les photos du débat me stressent, d’imaginer l’effort que ça représente de garder le sourire face à ça.

RT @Benjojo12: oh my god Amazon’s audio captchas are COMPLEATELY MENTAL [pic.twitter.com]

Honestly I’m rather curious to see what happens after Twitter implodes. Do we, as a society, step back or double down?

😱

So… Twitter is pretty much the one use case where it makes sense to ask “Can the blockchain save us?” right?

RT @MatthewBogart: Um… at least I know I’ll never hear songs like that one I liked again. [pic.twitter.com]

Est-ce que j’essaie de rester réveillé jusqu’à quatre heures du matin pour assister symboliquement à la fin de la civilisation occidentale ?

Ca doit être le fait de m’être mis aux mots croisés qui déverrouille des connexions nerveuses dans mon cerveau.

RT @bradmelmore: Internet: So it’s the 75th anniversary.

Kid on the Nevermind cover: please no not again.

Internet: Get in the fucking pool old man.

Bought a renowned iOS productivity app after someone I trust wrote a long post about how awesome it is.

The UI looks like it was designed for Palm Pilot.

RT @MachinePix: Water in laminar flow (or streamline flow) has no cross-currents, eddies, or swirls. [pic.twitter.com]

You didn’t have to… but you could have.

Je suis à ça de la crise de narcolepsie dans les toilettes à cause du son de l’aspirateur des voisins via les conduits d’aération.

There must be a way to remove an account from Tweetbot on iOS but I can’t find it ¯\(ツ)

‘Hey Siri’ worked great during the watchOS beta but fails half the time since release.

I think I need to create a @garoo_complains account.

The Watch’s stupid aggregate notifications aren’t very compatible with Google Assistant’s conversational style

Hope the Spectacles come out soon because I’m really tempted to make a circular video capture + player app and that’d be a huge waste of my time.

Hoping the “app extension issues” iOS 10.0.2 fixes include that user who left a 1-star review because the widget didn’t appear in the list.

I just super-liked someone on Tinder when I meant to scroll down on their profile. Goddamn UI traps.

Gave up on Safari because it has terrible performance with multiple tabs and with YouTube.

So now I’m… checking out Firefox 😳

Sierra opens the “Do you really want to change your default browser?” confirmation popup behind the active window — if not all windows ಠ_ಠ

RT @kezamacdonald: Some of the comments on Palmer Luckey’s now-deleted Reddit account are quite, quite extraordinary. Amazing how fast money can strip empathy.

RT @thedailybeast: EXCLUSIVE: Silicon Valley billionaire Palmer Luckey secretly funds group dedicated to posting anti-Clinton memes:… https://t.co/auzEWFtG7b

I like Google Assistant’s tone better than Siri’s. But I’m a misanthropic nerd so maybe Apple is right not to cater to me.

22 septembre

Got a few days to see if I cancel my Forza Horizon preorder. Feels silly to waste time on my 20-inch screen just before I get Driveclub VR.

I don’t give a fuck about the iPhone 7 anymore.

Didn’t seem possible to disable traction control in Driveclub VR; looks like they want to make sure you won’t do donuts until you throw up.

La démo Playstation VR est à l’angle de la rue des Archives et il y en a pour tous les goûts, si vous n’y allez pas vous êtes de gros nazes.

I don’t think it made me queasy (unlike Rush of Blood) but the lack of G-forces when you hit the brakes hard in Driveclub is extremely weird. Wheeeee! Suddenly you’re in zero-G!

And Rush of Blood is very good at what it does but oh my god demoing a rollercoaster to VR virgins are you fucking mad?

The VR mode in Bound is definitely pretty but having to keep teleporting manually in addition to controlling the character is too much of a pain in the ass.

The Tomb Raider PSVR experience is uninteresting and looks like shit because they’re going for photorealism without the power to achieve it.

Went to a PSVR showcase and somehow chose all of the worst demos. Except for Driveclub — Driveclub on a wheel is awesome.

I need a wheel.

You understood perfectly what I want and you know what time it is 🙄

RT @TimTr: Swift Playgrounds on iPad can control robots using Bluetooth. How cool is that?! Here’s a sample to get you started: https://t.co/2ybOysmbAO

I’ve enabled Apple’s new 2FA and it keeps asking me codes and I’m super nervous about they day it fucks up and I’m locked out of everything.

21 septembre

Also I’m getting one support e-mail per fifty $1 app sold and I don’t think that’s sustainable.

My Drobo is dead, I’ve screwed up my iPhone backups and the world is dark and hostile.

Vue la chance que j’ai aujourd’hui avec tout ce qui est informatique, je vais ressortir aveugle de ma démo PSVR demain, moi.

And I completely understand why someone would think it’s a good idea not to switch immediately to an empty tab.

But it’s not.

Safari opening new tabs in the tab bar then not switching to them until the content has loaded, that’s new, right?

It sucks.

RT @fet_complains: The one thing Siri on iOS is reliable for, Siri on Mac can’t do. [pic.twitter.com]

RT @stroughtonsmith: In a world where most photos end up on Snapchat/Facebook/Instagram, the faux-bokeh effect on the 7 Plus is as believable as most DSLR pics

Oh yeah I forgot to say that the glossy iPhone is a gorgeous object, but everyone already knew that. Worth the fingerprints after all.

Sorry I didn’t have the presence of mind to point out that it would be the ultimate status symbol within weeks.

Young guy at the Apple Store table seemed obsessed with Jet Black but dejected that it didn’t broadcast “I have an iPhone!” like White.

Drame à la table iPhone de l’Apple Store : quelqu’un se met à me parler de son dilemme pour choisir une couleur 😱

On the other hand I absolutely cannot understand the enthusiasm for the OS haptics ¯\(ツ)

I tried an iPhone 7 for five minutes in an Apple Store and I’m now completely disgusted with my old physical Home button.

Every OS update I try Safari again but don’t remember why I switched to Chrome and what to look for. This time I swear I’ll make a list.

I’m trying Safari again, as you do after any OS update, and I forgot how nice it is to have smooth scrolling.

Si vous avez insulté la mémoire d’Alan Turing en regardant Imitation Game, vous vous devez de voir Breaking the Code pour rattraper. (Même si c’est vraiment pas facile de regarder du VHS sur un écran 1080p.)

I’m only downloading Sierra, not even installing it yet 😨

love Rez but, judging by the tone of everyone’s previews, there must have been MDMA in the water at the hands-on event.

“Rez Infinite: Area X reveal trailer”

I guess the music isn’t as bad as Child of Eden’s and I’ll get used to it.

Okay let’s be reasonable and not rush to install Sier—oops.

I like to think the odds are pretty good that SteamVR will be compatible with Playstation VR headset and controllers by the time I get a PC.

Are people downloading it by mistake? Last-minute upgrading before Sierra? Or is the App Store really that dead?

RT @CraigGrannell: If you don’t use a cloning tool, SuperDuper! and Carbon Copy Cloner are both fab. I use SuperDuper! daily on my main works Mac.

RT @CraigGrannell: macOS Sierra is out today. If you plan to install, back-up your Mac first, preferably cloning the entire drive. Better safe than ARGH NOOOOO

Est-ce qu’ils ont oublié d’engager un directeur de la photographie pour les prises de vue réelles du film Warcraft ? Ca n’a pas de sens.

I’ve been hating all summer on iOS 10’s taller widgets, but I really like how my redesign came out.

RT @9to5mac: iPhone 7’s 25% brighter display only reaches max brightness w/ ‘Auto-Brightness’ enabled [9to5mac.com] [pic.twitter.com]

It doesn’t look like I’ll get a PC+Rift in the next couple of months, so I couldn’t possibly risk missing PSVR’s release.

Gave in and preordered the PSVR headset. Wanted to wait in case they released a complete bundle, but I’ll look for secondhand Moves instead.

So I guess the App Review team is recuperating from its GM-week overtime? (I mean, fair enough.)

Bon, il me faut un nouveau siège de bureau, et cette fois je ne me fais plus avoir, je prends une simple chaise, no moving parts.

RT @Grathio: Something happened in my brain. Now I look at these cursors and think “Nail, slot screw, Phillips screw”. [pic.twitter.com]

No joke, every social app should have this. (And also an option to replace a user’s avatar while we’re at it.)

18 septembre

I get how that makes sense to get the best possible picture, but as a photography enthusiast I’d rather they just disabled the 2x setting.

I mean ideally I should wait for the October keynote because you never know but, come on, as if.

Can’t believe I’ve had this MacBook Pro for two and a half years already. That makes it perfectly reasonable to buy a big new PC for VR!

RT @jamiepinkham: Free killer iPhone 7 accessory idea: external battery with headphone jack

And it probably makes sense because most people didn’t organize their widgets, but it makes the view significantly less useful for power users. Well, I guess that’s iOS for you.

iOS 10 remembering your scroll position in Today view completely defeats the point of putting the most important information at the top 😕

RT @MartinSFP: Now this is what I call a Lightning dongle: USB charging, headphones, L/R line out and MIDI in. [pic.twitter.com]

Almost lost my streak on a stupid mistake — I was so close to giving up

RT @Sci_Phile: Playstation brand ambassadors wear awesome flash-sensitive clothing. [pic.twitter.com]

RT @The_Axx: Apparently when I click the home button to exit an app, I do it with my fingernail. Not something I ever realized until it no longer works 😐

The Forza Horizon 3 demo was full of diverse cars at launch, but now all the drivatars are driving the same blue BMW we’re all locked to 😄

A freemium vector drawing app smartly retooled to emphasize custom sticker creation

It works great for free, and syncs to iCloud so you can create stickers on iPad and use them on iPhone.

Metal Gear Survive gameplay video

I don’t really enjoy wave-based survival modes, but this looks more than decent.

For a game where your gear levels up, customization is so much better than The Division’s

Didn’t expect to have so much fun in this game #PS4share

Logging into Slack: iOS adds a couple steps too many to the process but this is beautiful UX

Two things Overwatch gets right that For Honor mysterioulsy chooses not to: your allies are always the same color, and you can change heroes at respawn.

I’m finding For Honor completely amazing (in 4v4, mostly) but I’ve never played, say, Chivalry, so what do I know.
