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.

1 avril 2016

Oh, there you go. I wouldn’t have hated the beginning of Bloodborne so much if the game had told me I should pick the cane.


I finally figured out what the Model 3 front looks like. []

Ah mais les deux jeans que j’avais achetés déteignent de partout, sur les chaussures et les meubles. Qui peut bien… oh. FUCKING HIPSTERS.


Our entire concept of what a “Car” looks like is predicated on the need for cooling a block of metal trapping exploding dinosaur juice.

How hard can it be to sync timers and alarms between the Watch and iPhone? Give them a UUID so both devices can recognize them, poof, done.

Oh, Apple Developer Program is an automatic renewal now — on a credit card. So many accounts are gonna disappear because the card expired.


Look how instinctively, the mother croc carries the baby in its mouth. Nature is beautiful. []


April Fools Day is like the Razzies: It was relevant when our entire lives weren’t about ironic detachment.

If everyone’s asking consumers to buy a new console, you want to be the most powerful one. (That definitely helped PS4 in the first place.)

2 avril

I’d really love to know more about the demographics of who the fuck pays to subscribe to Twitch streamers. The very idea boggles me.

3 avril

Je veux pas être à cheval sur les marques mais quand on en arrive au “vodka-red bull” qui sent la pisse on a un peu dépassé une limite.


Next time a vendor screws around on pricing, remind them SpaceX’s website has how much they charge to SEND A SATELLITE INTO SPACE.

J’ai trouvé l’homme de ma vie en boîte hier. Manque de pot il était sur scène et il est mannequin-danseur brésilien.

J’essaie de me rappeler ce qu’on fait quand il ne fait pas froid ni mouillé dehors.

Ma Watch disait “Sunny” alors je suis sorti bronzer, mais il n’y a pas de soleil et c’est plein de gens.

4 avril

Can’t deny that the most fun aspect of Bloodborne is getting stuck on scenery you can’t see while trying to dodge a boss.


Studio sculpts giant coin, photographs it alongside normal objects to make them look tiny

Today’s xkcd unjustly favors people who keep dozens of tabs open at all times. I don’t normally have a browser window always open.

- Papa, Maman, C’est décidé, j’arrête de tondre des pelouses. Je me lance dans le cinéma

- Mais pour quoi faire ?

Je marche vers l’ouest pour synthétiser de la chlorophylle. Je vous enverrai une carte postale de Versailles.

On peut annuler le printemps en fait ? C’est plein de bêtes.


DayOne or TextExpander content is by nature sensitive. But sure roll your own sync servers, put it behind https and call it “secure”.


I tried explaining Soylent to my mom and she was like, oh you mean Slimfast? I was like yes but now made by and for men, so we call it tech


I’m scping 25gb of data from 1 computer on my network to another so my network is saturated and I can’t turn on my lights. #InternetOfThings

Fucking Tuesdays, man #livingfortheweekend

“Huawei P9 uses dual-lens camera to refocus”

I wanna see that in action. How can it work with one sensor being B&W?

I find Dirt Rally pretty terrible at expressing what the tires are doing. Needs more tire sounds, whether that would be realistic or not.

7 avril

My Rise of the Tomb Raider game save (at 18%) triggers a crash to the Xbox’s home screen. Here’s to one less game I feel obligated to play that I don’t enjoy.

That Final Fantasy demo is awful, right? It’s certainly dispelled any curiosity, let alone interest, I could have for the game.


Here we see a wild heard of excavators devour their pray in a single night. []


Ihr kennt eine Rolltreppe? Ihr habt einen VLC Player aus Plastik?

Ihr habt einen Auftrag. []

Oh, une invitation à un Pacs et un anniversaire de quelqu’un dont je n’ai jamais eu de nouvelles depuis.

Dingue quand même qu’il ait fallu quarante ans pour avoir une side-story dans l’univers Star Wars (au cinéma).

Disney Crossy Road is rather ugly — they should have dropped the voxel look altogether instead of this bastardization.

Why would isFirstPartyHideableApp be necessary for App Store apps when by definition they’re all deletable? Is Apple going to uncouple first-party app updates from OS updates? (That makes sense for Android because OS updates are poorly applied, but not for iOS where Apple pushes updates so aggressively.)

8 avril

Mavericks had made it hard enough to see Finder labels; they’re now useless after moving my work folder to Dropbox

Les délais sur sont descendus de 24h à 60 minutes. Que vais-je devenir s’ils ferment le site par manque de succès ?

La vie serait tellement plus simple si Philips faisait des ampoules Hue en E14, non ?

Can’t believe I had never installed Hearthstone on my iPad Pro. Playing on that 12-inch touchscreen feels so nice. (Even if the visuals aren’t optimized for it.)

9 avril

Mon cerveau s’est senti trahi par le retour du froid et a décidé de tout abandonner.

Là je regrette un peu que mon éducation m’ait poussé à acheter ce paquet de biscuits après l’avoir fait tomber par terre dans le magasin.

If the NYT Crossword app had any social functionality I’d get my friends hooked to the mini until they upgrade to a paid sub. Just saying.

Cette envie de frapper tous les gens qui sont à Paris sur Grindr avec “Visiting from Paris” comme accroche.

10 avril

Une piste de la taille du Gibus mais où tout le monde danse. J’ai dû sortir de Paris sans m’en apercevoir.

Never mind, j’ai changé d’emplacement dans la salle et je suis revenu à Paris. C’était une illusion d’optique.

N’empêche que dans un monde juste je me ferais draguer parce que je danse trop mieux que les autres, c’est une évidence.

Moi : “Au pire si je me fais chier j’irai sur Grindr, je serai dans le centre.”

Grindr : “Connecting.”

Il faut que je me reconstitue un groupe “d’amis” alcoolos que je puisse rejoindre pour prendre des verres dans le Marais quald ça me chante.

The original patent from 1891 for a toilet paper roll shows the correct rolling direction, in case you ever doubted. []

Lytro’s making a 4K movie camera

(Sadly it looks too big for a steadicam, where post-prod focus pulling would be most useful.)

The leaked new Kindle’s battery handhold is a good idea but the rest of the design is damn ugly — which sadly makes the leak feel credible.

Tried using El Cap with full-screen & split view for a while and almost liked it, but the Dock’s reluctance to pop up was driving me insane.

12 avril

Because, unless the price goes down another 50% (at least), I’m pretty sure the market is mostly people who already bought the first model.

“No Man’s Sky: 21 Minutes of New Gameplay”

Don’t like the survival. Hate “you’ll google where to find resources.”

I know game designers today feel obligated to incorporate the internet, but I want to forget all about the outside world while playing this.

And while designing your game you tend to forget that googling for answers will lead players to a lot of unpleasant posts.

The Voices (2015) — 5/10

C’est honteux d’avoir vendu The Voices comme une comédie. Pas facile à promouvoir, faut dire — quoi que ça veuille vraiment être, ce n’est ni intéressant ni réussi.

What the Hell Are Superdelegates?
Je vais partager du Samantha Bee chaque semaine, puisqu’il n’y en a que pour John Oliver sur les réseaux sociaux alors que son show n’a plus qu’une seule blague à son répertoire, l’analogie hors-sujet (et je n’étais même pas ceux qui se plaignaient des sempiternels faux flashbacks de Family Guy).


“I love stateless systems”

“Don’t they have drawbacks?”

“Don’t what have drawbacks?”

(credit to deleted @qntm tweet)


I have this theory that using video for learning/tutorials drives away programmers (who think in text) and fast learners (who hate fluff).

What. Did the Apple Pencil really go from 99€ to 109€?

Found a buyer for my 12” iPad Pro. Ostensibly to buy a 9” Pro instead, but it would be redundant with my Mini and I love the Mini so much…

Either way I’ll miss that big, beautiful, stupid, unmanageable 12-inch screen.

Wow, I just sent 50 photos from my iPad to my Mac with AirDrop in the blink of an eye. (AirDrop has been so shitty before, I feel it’s worth pointing out.)

“Apple Is Ending iTunes Allowances, but Why?”

I’d never heard of them, but they do sound like a great idea for everyone involved?

I’m watching a Gears of War 4 video and, hey, I’d completely forgotten how much I’d enjoyed that series.

The sound of a Lancer about to run out of bullets <3

15 avril

I love that the copilot’s barks take a calm “when we eventually get there” tone in Dirt Rally while you’re doing a U-turn after a spin.

I get the feeling that what the Dirt Rally team actually want to do is a Dakar sim — as a survival game.

Which is what Mad Max should have been, by the way.

So many developers had been clamoring “Schiller is preparing an App Store overhaul” as if the outcome was gonna be positive.



Why did this leak?

- is it wrong

- leaked by someone trying to kill it

- intentionally leaked to set expectations

To be clear I don’t care whether it comes to pass or not — if that’s really where their thinking is right now, it just shows how screwed we are.


Some programmers, when confronted with a problem think, ‘I know, I’ll use threads’

and then two they hav erpoblesm.


I’ve understood wealth too casually.


1 million seconds = just over 11 days.


1 billion seconds = nearly 32 years.


If I could have a superpower, it’d be falling asleep without first analyzing every social interaction I’ve ever had.

If it’s MacOS instead of macOS like all the other OSes I’m selling all of my Apple hardware. Gotta know when to put your foot down.

2 birds, 1 stone: Allow unlisted apps with less nitpicky review process. We get freedom, users learn to look for App Store links on the web.

17 avril

Until Dawn’s main reveals are a bit lame and clumsily delivered but I absolutely love everything else in this game.

Killed Gascoigne on the second try after finding out you need to roll into the attack. I wish the game made an effort to teach that stuff.

But I’m tempted to give up on Bloodborne and move to Dark Souls 3 because at least Souls doesn’t respawn you without health packs.


Sign of a great redesign is when the original, however iconic, looks fussy and over-designed by comparison. []

Ma timeline Facebook nargue agressivement mon manque de motivation pour me lever et sortir danser à midi.

Instagram’s blank-search view does better discovery than anything Twitter offers. Is it so much easier for photos or does Twitter just suck?

Engineers, designers, product people in general as CEOs: fad or return to form?

Je regarderais Julia Louis-Dreyfus lire le bottin ou jouer dans Saturday Night Live. (Mais j’aurais préféré le bottin.)


baby pangolins always look like they’re waiting to nervously ask you to prom []

Why can’t I write </div id=“myid”> and get a warning in the console if it ends up closing a <div id=“anotherid”>? (“XML doesn’t do attributes in closing tags” is not a valid answer.)


Sobering thought that our free Gmail, Gmaps etc. are being (albeit indirectly) subsidised by problem gambling []

19 avril


Sources have confirmed for us the specs of the upcoming “PS4.5,” which has the codename NEO: []


Basically,if the Neo results in a $250 PS4, and Sony keeps games running smooth on both models, this sounds like an Everybody Wins scenario.


Majestic… bulldozer mating rituals in their natural habitat []

The Watch needs a Wet Mode that uses 3D Touch to distinguish intentional presses from water droplets.

(I’ve been trying to keep my Watch under the shower lately because the NATO strap is too cumbersome to take off and put back on.)

Hrm, I could probably replace my MacBook Pro with a MacBook One, a big Mac Mini and a huge 4K TV for the same price.

Oh but I could stick to my old Mini for desktop use and get a gaming PC with the remainder and oh god I need to offload my MacBook Pro now.


It sounds stupid, but really, the “Store closed” sign worked a hell of a lot better than “The page you’re looking for can’t be found.”


It’s a good thing some people were actually willing to “reinvent the wheel”. []

The article also makes a very good point that Apple must be much more interested in HoloLens-like stuff than full-on VR.


A bash script that moves the given thing into the Trash. I use it instead of `rm -rf` []

Reading Saint-Exupéry’s autobiographical stories, imagining the game one could make — like Desert Bus, but with danger and suspense.

Question about preferred size of a #Scrum team made me visualize this today: “Why BIG teams fail!!1!” :) #agile []


Idly wondering how MacOS X would look if they brought back 10.0-style Aqua on today’s Retina screens.

Admit it, it’d probably look awesome!


A (very) brief Prince and Bowie thought: we’ve lost two artists who acted as reminders that there’s no one right way to be a man.

Souvenir : trouver l’album dans un hypermarché et me demander si je pouvais l’acheter sans que ça fasse bizarre

Et comme je me suis répondu non, je ne l’ai jamais eu et je ne reconnais pas du tout l’image.

Also, je ne suis jamais arrivé au bout de :

Ma Watch disait grand soleil dehors et 21°, alors maintenant je sens la poussée de fièvre qui commence, forcément.

22 avril

Is there a sane workflow for using my iPad Pro to quickly annotate an image that’s on my Mac? Can’t seem to find one and that’s ridiculous.

Ended up doing the annotation on a white background in Adobe Sketch and sending it to Photoshop for compositing. Because the future is bullshit.

23 avril

Après deux heures à comater : “oh mais le paracétamol avait bien marché hier, et si j’en reprenais ?”

Wait, ‘parlay’ and ‘parley’ are two completely different words.

Il y avait “leg warmers” dans ma grille de mots croisés et j’ai eu des images de Dead Like Me en tête tout le long 💜

Si j’avais su que c’était aujourd’hui, la Formule E, je serais allé voir. Je ne pensais pas que Twitter s’était scandalisé à si court terme.

Je n’ai absolument aucune raison de penser que la MDMA ait un effet bénéfique contre les anxiétés sociales et choses de ce genre.

24 avril

When I grow up I wanna become a psychopath and not have my enjoyment of a party depend on everyone else’s.

L’article d’hier me fait réaliser que les gens arrivent à visualiser un visage dans leur esprit ? Moi, comme il dit, “I have a hash table” (i.e., les images dans mon imagination sont toujours floues, mais je pensais que c’était juste pour aller avec ma myopie).

I’m not bitter, but there’s no goddamn reason for the second question you ask a guy you just kissed in a club to be “how old are you?”

25 avril


Comparing Apple Watch and iPhone’s first years as a defense for Apple Watch doesn’t work. Everyone loved their iPhones.


Will my watch turn on when I look at it? Will Siri get me? Will 3D touching this do anything? Every new Apple interaction is a minefield. 🤔

26 avril


Get up on stage and entertain the crowd in Stage Presence, a new #VR title from tinyBuilds: [] []

The concept of playing Stage Presence online feels a lot to me like “if you die in the game, you die in real life.”

Wait, why are they looking for a Rachel to find “Becky”?

27 avril

Thank you Philips for giving me a choice; doing IoT mostly right

I never really got into Ingress, and the video makes it look more annoying than anything, but who knows.

Je ne vais pas rester abonné à un service qui m’insulte comme ça

“VReal: Twitch for VR, on Steroids”

Sounds awesome, but Twitch would have to screw up badly for anyone else to have a shot.

All I had to do was turn on my Xbox to download the Gears of War beta and somehow I missed any mention of it on the places I follow?

Am I getting old or did they make the roadie run spectacularly barftastic in the Gears 4 beta?


je veux vivre là dedans !

“The Floating Seahorse, la première villa sous-marine est sortie de l’eau” []

The new Philips Hue app clearly shows a change of focus away from color bulbs. I’ll be pissed off if/when they stop updating the old app.

Just found out that the text clipping I’d created a month ago by dragging a sentence out of Mail was truncated after a few words \o/

I’d forgotten about the “mechanical Apartheid” bullshit. Guess Eidos is sticking with it, huh.


I’ve analyzed the Silicon Valley Bot Startup trend and created a handy venn diagram to help explain it. []


Dark Souls 3 is dealing with its cheating problem by punishing its biggest fans. It’s bullshit. []

Are there any articles yet about why Dreadnought is interesting to play? Because I’m watching streams and, uh…

29 avril


All of my “technical” designer friends have gotten into VR development in the last few months. All of them!

Ah, right, it’s about cooldowns. So Dreadnought is MMO combat in 3D? And here I thought MMO combat was meant to be tolerated, not emulated.

I keep forgetting about El Cap’s Split View and now I’ve just changed my life by having iTunes and Spotify share the same full-screen view.

Forty years later, is Soylent Green’s final reveal still horrifying or does the movie just encourage eco-conscious protein recycling?


Fullest House is a recurrent neural network trained on every Full House episode, making a new script every day. []

I’m gonna assume it’s a transitory bug that I can’t use non-Standard Hearthstone decks in the Naxxramas fights I had yet to complete?

Hello! Here’s in-game footage of 1666 Amsterdam, unreleased for Xbox 360 and PS3. []

Guess my Forza Horizon save was deleted to make some room, so it’s been downloading for ten minutes now. Fuck everything about the Xbox One.

In the 2010s, god help you if you’re in a bad mood and turn on your console to let off some steam.
