A photographer lovingly captures the unlikely bond between his family and an orphaned bird [] []


Dear everybody hating on April Fool’s Day: I’m sorry you have to use critical judgment on the internet for a whole 24 hours. What a burden.

The new GTAV PC 60fps trailer makes trivial things like Lester pushing pins into a bulletin board look AMAZING. []

D’un côté je rêve de tester la croisière La Démence une fois dans ma vie. De l’autre je peine à imaginer des vacances plus cauchemardesques.

The Wired feature on Apple Watch says iOS 7 was being designed in late 2011 or early 2012. It must be a mistake?

Rookie mistake : acheter un pèse-personne sans impédancemètre pour mesurer les progrès dûs au sport #traumatisme

4 avril

The root of the issue is that the watch is trying to do too much (in order to justify its existence). The end result is bad UX.

I currently have 100% smartwatch envy and only about 2% Apple Watch envy. I really hope Android Wear ends up working well with iOS.

Shadow of Mordor is the first time it bothers me to recognize Troy Baker’s voice. (Too American, maybe?) Was bound to happen someday.

Ecouter un album, n’importe quel album, de ma bibliothèque iTunes après avoir regardé une heure de The Voice, comme redécouvrir l’oxygène.

Fuck the proximity wingsuit objective.

La Leche au Showcase était la seule soirée de Paris où j’aimais à la fois la musique, l’ambiance et le lieu.

Alors ils ont changé de lieu.


Watching Elite Dangerous gameplay is like watching people fly actual spaceships in an inhabited universe. So good. []

7 avril

I so, so, so want to play Elite Dangerous — but only with a VR headset, so that’s a bit of an investment.

Oh. Even with assists off, Elite Dangerous enforces speed limits; ships don’t roll nearly fast enough for Battlestar Galactica dogfights.

I’ll never get used to the English pronunciation for ‘margarine.’

I’m ashamed to say I had never realized before today that “newtonian physics” in a spaceship sim would also apply to rotational inertia.

J’espérais un peu qu’iOS 8.3 ne sortirait jamais pour que je n’aie pas besoin de mettre à jour Uniconsole #flemme #aquoibon

9 avril

Is there a bug on my iPhone or does 8.3 actually force you to pick a separate color for each human emoji? I assumed choosing the color once would change all the faces simultaneously.

A new Xcode update, new provisioning issues in projects that compiled just fine a week ago.

My rational brain still rejects the Apple Watch on many grounds, but the buzz on Twitter is putting some damn pressure on my magpie brain.

Tumblr’s post editor displays a little dot on non-breaking spaces <3 <3 <3

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.)


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


Just received my new 3€ Watch — it has force touch and literally zero buttons []

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.

Animal Farm (George Orwell) — 8/10

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.

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?

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

Most of Kaguyahime no monogatari is lovely (and so sad), but the silly, pointless ending is a complete waste.


Part of the growth of tech is that it moves beyond purely utilitarian use cases.

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.

I took issue with 1984’s unrealistic human behavior, so obviously I’m enjoying Animal Farm a lot more — not the same expectations.

Tibetans had it right. The best political system is to find a child with the desired intrinsic qualities and then raise him to spec.

Redditors having no qualms about calling the stainless-steel model “Apple Watch SS.” But then Chevrolet has used the “SS” badge for decades.

I’m a hermit with a roommate. That means I only get to survive until day 2 of the zombie apocalypse.

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

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.

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.

I found out how teens (likely) hacked into my car last week, and how to stop them with the help of my freezer: []

High resolution, color corrected, slow motion rocket landing video []

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.

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

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

A Qi iPhone case without the usual chin

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

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?


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.

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.


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.

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.”

“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.

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.

I feel less guilty for being addicted to DomiNations knowing that its creators were designers and producers at Firaxis.


“Make any animation half as long as you think it should be. And then possibly halve the timing again” (B. Scott - Designing Web Interfaces)

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.

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.

21 avril

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).

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.

22 avril

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.


Remember that amazing chase and final fight in Bourne Ultimatum? Paul Greengrass describes how and why in pictures: []

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

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?

Apple, you so evil. App rejection: “… your app and app description declare support for the Pebble Smartwatch” []

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

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.

Tellement parfait, j’hésite à le laisser.

I was adding black rounded corners to my iPhone apps before the Watch made it fashionable again.

Trouble getting iTunes to sync my Photos albums to iPhone. Is there gonna be a point when iOS devices are just unusable without paid iCloud?

Annulez tout, mon pantalon de clubbing est cassé !


Awesome, from a time before all fans simply had “baskets” built in… []

Just figured out that what people call the Watch’s “air gap” must be the glass needing to be thicker to withstand Force Touch. (I knew it had to be the glass’s thickness, but blanked on the reason why.)

The problem isn’t that stainless steel gets scratched, but that the Watch isn’t designed to look good with scratches #realworlddesign

“Nokia is gonna make smartphones again” is the new “webOS is coming back.”

Let’s do this but in landscape. Wrists are wider than tall; it’ll never look like an old-school watch so stop trying.

Funny how John Oliver’s segment on sweatshops stopped way short of daring to ask the audience to change their consuming habits.

Si je bossais au lieu de chercher comment utiliser mes bons pour des .me et .club gratuits, je pourrais m’acheter tous les .com que je veux.

Wish I could set up keyframes in Interface Builder and animate between them in code. You know, flat design coming alive through motion and all that.


The Internet of Things: accept our terms of service update to continue unlocking your door []

Well done, quickly adjusting to a changing market

I like the design; it’s probably significant though that it’s not shown on a wrist for size.

I feel like iOS used to be smart enough not to scroll-to-top the active app when you swiped the Notification Center down. Misremembering?


Xcode provisioning nightmares are a real thing. Oh my god. Help []
