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.

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?

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.


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.


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.

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.

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.


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.”

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.

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”



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


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.

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.


Last year’s iPhone prices: $700, $800 and $1,000.

This year’s iPhone prices: $750, $1,000 and $1,100.



Very nice, the new iPhone lineup supports background NFC tag communication which can wake up your iOS app! []

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


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

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?


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.


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. 🤦‍♂️


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. []


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 🤦🏻‍♂️

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.

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.

« Zemmour ne serait pas devenu Zemmour sans complicité » : @d_schneidermann nous en apprend de belles []

This has been happening a lot the last couple of months (Series 0, no betas involved), and considering their track record you can hardly blame me for assuming Apple published a software update that broke this or all widgets on older devices and doesn’t give a shit.


Mind you, this makes the Xr an even better value proposition — with a wide-angle sensor like this, who needs a shitty second camera.

I bet the Xs is gonna go back to cropping the wide-angle shot instead of using the telephoto when the setting is a little dark, in cases where the X would have used the telephoto camera.

People complain that Horizon 4 is too hard with a steering wheel, and I find the new handling too easy on a controller, so I figured I’d try, but somehow my gas pedal doesn’t work in the game—yet the brake does.

And I really don’t enjoy how the game feels on gamepad 😕

The rumors and speculation on the subject seem to have died down, but wouldn’t the Xs/Xr mess of a lineup make a lot more sense if the Xs was — or had been intended to be — compatible with the next Pencil?


Maybe the most bananas thing I’ve learned about iPhone XS is that if you shoot 4K 30fps video, it actually shoots 60fps with every other frame stepped up/down, and then stitches the frame pairs together on the fly to create extended dynamic range.

400 € de Leroy-Merlin et Ikea cette semaine en mode “j’élimine autant de points de friction que possible de ma vie quotidienne en prévision de la rentrée.” Maintenant je n’ai plus qu’à brûler ma CB et bouffer des feuilles mortes.

N’empêche, je n’ai pas de regrets sur la partie “omg vous n’imaginez pas le confort que c’est de pouvoir prendre une douche à peu près à la température qu’on veut.”

It’s 1992. A time traveler pops into the campaign bus of these young Americans and says “Three of you will win the popular vote and only one of you will become President.”


People are really struggling with the fact that the XS series iPhone’s mount the SIM card the opposite way to previous models. This is like the 3rd one I’ve seen, including one who is trying to demand credit from Telstra for the inconvenience of a faulty launch model

Ironically, Marzipan is pretty much exactly the same strategy as Microsoft’s UMP, which everyone cited as an example for Apple to follow. The difference is that Win32 apps do deserve to die.


I never wanted ‘iOS apps on Mac’ I wanted ‘UIKit on mac’.

Like how UIKit powers: iOS, WatchOS, and tvOS.

But they have different UI designs and input mechanisms.
