@DrBeef_:

I’m laughing so hard at this slide a friend sent me from one of Geoff Hinton’s courses;

“To deal with hyper-planes in a 14-dimensional space, visualize a 3-D space and say ‘fourteen’ to yourself very loudly. Everyone does it.”

Huh, TIL you can adjust exposure compensation in iOS’ camera by swiping up and down after setting the focus point.

@dnanian:

I know it’s not done, that it’s a really hard problem, and that it’s “handy” to have Home etc in Mojave, but it’s all just so wrong.

Remember how we all laughed and laughed at Microsoft because Windows 8 had “tablet” apps & “native”/old apps?

How is this better/different?

@MKupperman:

ENOUGH WITH THE ENTERTAINMENT SURVEYS. List five films, list three films, list ten theme songs- THIS IS THE SHIT THEY DO WITH SENIOR CITIZENS IN A REST HOME TO SPARK THEIR MEMORY.

J’ai regardé la saison entière de Disenchanted parce que le buzz assurait que les trois derniers épisodes étaient meilleurs, et ce n’est pas totalement faux mais ça ne méritait pas vraiment le déplacement.

@MattTheGweat:

This Labor Day, when someone pulls out Monopoly, remind them that the game was stolen by Parker Bros. from a woman anarchist who had built a game around cooperation. That miserable, cutthroat ending of every playthrough? That was the loss condition in the original version.

@Metrokun:

Pourquoi quand on fait la bise, c’est toujours ceux qui en font le plus qui gagnent ?

Genre je fais deux bises à une meuf, elle me sort “Ah non chez moi c’est trois hi hi” j’ai juste envie de répondre “Oui bah chez moi c’est deux donc range ta mâchoire Chantal merci bien.”

Hey, Sony, it’s your responsibility to make sure games don’t waste hundreds of MBs of online space, and eat the cost of those that do — not mine to sort through an endless list of game saves to free up space when my PS4 starts hiding sync errors in the Notifications menu.

🙌 Taubira-présidente forever 🙌

The desktop version of Signal, which had worked perfectly until then, has started to become completely unreliable in the last few months (and painfully slow when it does work). I guess it’s time to try trusting iMessage’s iCloud sync? I was reluctant but it can’t be much worse.

Linus Torvalds: I don’t believe in “user experience” or “graphical interfaces”. The best way for anyone to perform complex operations is through a command line or an editor, preferably something with arcane multi-key combos.

Software industry: This is the man whose tools we want

God of War III is free on PSN+ this month and I figured I’d just play it for two minutes in memory of the good old days (although I remember having more fun with the first one) — but I forgot that game was not easy to put down.

@BeatSaber:

OMG, these are so dope! 🔥🔥

Attending Korea VR Festival 2018? Stop by at Skonec booth and try the first Beat Saber arcade machine ever! #KVRF 💯

I don’t think I’ve ever been ranked so high in any game, and it probably just means that Six Match didn’t get anywhere close to the success it deserved

I was gonna buy legit art prints online but the site invited me to sign up with Facebook then asked me for my e-mail address and a password anyway so I’ll just use Google Images and a cheap printer thank you fuck off.

@atlasobscura:

Before eating this chocolate-y confection, inject butterscotch liqueur directly into its center. The chocolate part, the brigadiero, was popularized in Brazil in the 1940s. The eyedropper of South African liqueur was later added by confectioners, making the treat “interactive.”

@christhebarker:

Pleased my headline/image combo got through

I’ve disabled most categories of iCloud sync on my second Mac (including “Mail”) but it still refuses to delete a mail account without removing it from all my Macs.

As a player of crosswords I really like the cipher puzzles in Jettomero. Simple but efficient (though the gamepad controls are too fiddly); I’ve never felt so much like I was decoding a crypted message in a game.

Shadow of the Colossus, but instead of killing huge creatures, you heal them. You climb up on an almost dead colossus to reach a spot where you can insert healing magic and the further along you are with healing, the harder it gets to stay on because the thing is moving again.

@stcymsn:

This study is STILL so relevant. I link to it all the time, and I think it should be required in all bias training. Men and women have different communication norms and women’s typical pattern is perceived as “less confident”

[hbr.org]

@stcymsn:

Men communicate in a “one-up” manner, in which a man makes a statement to another, that positions himself “above” the other person, through playful teasing, boasting, firm assertions etc. He expects the other person to restore the balance also through teasing, boasting, etc

@stcymsn:

Women do the opposite. They position themselves “one-down” by complimenting the other person, self-deprecating, expressing uncertainty, etc. they expect the other person to restore the balance by returning a compliment, self-deprecation, etc.

if you had a cyberpunk universe where the richest man in the world is posting adds for a shell company called “ambrosia” that gathers blood from poor people to extend his lifespan you would rightly be able to laugh at the author for having zero subtlety [twitter.com]

Behind the scenes, #AmericanGods Season 2 is a mess. Last fall, the showrunners of the Starz drama were fired. Now S2 is behind schedule, there are massive reshoots, actors are unhappy & the new showrunner was dumped. New story from myself & @Snoodit [hollywoodreporter.com]

Oh hey it’s my first keynote without the streaming timeline 😤

Will have to see it in person but the Watch’s new super-rounded edges make it look sooo much better.

Dear European customer: please enjoy your ECG-capable Watch with ECG capability disabled.

@BenedictEvans:

The nightmare for operators is that your phone pops up each Monday morning telling you who has the cheapest data this week, and automatically switches the virtual SIM, and you use your actual PSTN phone number so little (thanks to messaging apps) that you don’t care if it changes

“Oh yeah no one needs 3D Touch anyway. And you don’t really need two cameras to do Portrait mode. What have you idiots been buying from us all this time?”

This lineup is positively absurd. The only proper reason not to buy the Xr is that it doesn’t look as good with the bigger bezel. I suppose economies of scale are involved but it’s insane that it has the same CPU as Xs.

@stroughtonsmith:

Apple can finally add new screen resolutions to iOS devices without expecting developers to recompile their apps every time. Size classes & resizability finally paying off

@TimothyReavis:

Apple’s decision to change the larger iPhone naming convention to Max could mean we’ll see an iPhone Mini soon.

Max / Mini makes more sense than Plus / Minus

Looks like Forza Horizon 4 has dialed down the obnoxiousness and walked back the structural changes that both made me give up on Horizon 3. Glad to have a good driving game again to burn off stress at the end of the day—I’m gonna need it come October.

The driving model feels more arcadey than I remember, though. Or have I just played too much Dirt Rally?

@cabel:

i’m running for office on a single issue: Ban All Amazon Third Party Sellers. vote for me

I love that Playground decided it couldn’t portray the English countryside in Horizon without developing destructible drystone wall technology.

I’d decided to try as many custom songs as I could (it’s easier now that there’s a Delete button right in Beat Saber) but there’s so much crap coming out every day — the prospect of going through a bunch of bad maps, even for ten seconds, actually began to sour me on the game.

@DazeEnd:

Apple (to consumers): “Most apps are free!”

Also Apple (to developers): “Get your apps ready for the new hardware!”

Me: Umm… I think I’m going to opt out. Thanks anyway. 🤦‍♂️

@NathanJLiu:

Maybe the reason they discouraged and rarely hid the notch after iPhone X was announced was in the knowledge they were going to release an LCD with a notch. [twitter.com]

@Aldrikh:

Là, je pense que c’est un pari entre développeurs complètement bourrés, je ne vois pas d’autre explication

C’est arrivé à République que je me suis rappelé que le pass gratuit était pour la soirée de demain et que quitte à oayer j’aurais pu partir de chez moi deux heures plus tard et ne pas me retrouver — encore, toujours — dans un club vide 🤦🏻‍♂️

Un club gay qui laisse entrer autant de couples hétéro peut-il survivre ou est-il condamné à devenir ringard ? Vous avez deux heures.

@calopedie:

Quand j’étais jeune je me demandais si je deviendrais une vieille conne qui trouve les jeunes mal élevés.

En fait maintenant c’est les vieux que je trouve incroyablement malpolis et croyez-moi si vous voulez mais : quand j’étais jeune, il y avait de meilleurs vieux.

Une soirée au Gibus normale, avec bousculade permanente, 20% de la salle qui danse à un instant t, victime collatérale d’un verre dans la gueule sans qu’il vienne à l’idée de personne de s’excuser, et un mégot au fond de mon rhum-coca. 8/10 would hate humanity again.

I did a thing to convince myself the XS MAX 512 GB wasn’t so expensive

Laurent Garnier pour une première Concrete, ou l’assurance absolue qu’aucune autre ne sera jamais aussi bien, c’est très pratique.

Je ne sais pas qui a lancé la mode du barbecue sur les péniches électro, mais est-ce qu’on n’a pas plus envie d’une crêpe au Nutella ou d’un pot de Häagen-Dazs que d’une merguez-frites ?

@derKha:

Jokes are such a weird thing to exist… it’s like the brain going “Ohoho, you fooled my branch predictor? I’ll give you some nice neurotransmitters for that”

@webster:

I appreciate the honesty.

Shortcuts is out and my playlist-launching shortcuts still make the Today widget crash (because they take too much time and/or memory) 😒

Well, at least the app itself’s main screen makes it much easier to launch shortcuts than Workflow did.

@stroughtonsmith:

…I didn’t even consider Siri Shortcuts for apps already open onscreen 😲 [twitter.com]

Why is the Forza Horizon 4 demo giving me a 6-speed gearbox on a 1969 Dodge Charger or a 1982 Lancia Stradale.
