I had noticed the tallness, but not that it went beyond the screen.
Anybody else got the App Store bug where my iPhone 6 will only realize it recognized my fingerprint after I tap the “Enter Password” button?
Related: I’d love to be able to check easily that an iOS app is using the system keychain to store my passwords, not plain text storage.
It’s so unprofessional I assumed it had to be a Europe-only change.
Interesting discovery from the Yosemite San Francisco hack: looks like the desktop dynamically computes the icon grid from the font metrics.
RT @kidminded: The irony of Apple’s typeface being similar to Google is overwhelming. Arial : Helvetica :: San Francisco : Roboto
So, with all third-party code running on the tethered iPhone for now, jury’s still out on whether the Watch’s OS is based on Swift. (Though I’d argue that the Watch being Swift-only would be the best possible reason why third-party code isn’t allowed to run on it yet.)
Looks like WatchKit UI design is essentially fluid / responsive. Makes you wonder what the future holds for the device.
WatchKit code runs entirely on the accompanying iPhone. That’s only temporary, for the first stage of the SDK release, right? Right?
The industrial design for the N1 came from Nokia, but the company is no longer in the manufacturing business and has licensed that design — along with its Z Launcher and various intellectual property — to Chinese manufacturer Foxconn, which rather interestingly will handle distribution and sales and customer care, and will even be responsible for liabilities and warranty costs.
Does it sound to anyone else like Foxconn is essentially paying Nokia to take the heat on the iPad mini-cloniness of its new tablet? The tech press might buy the idea, and the public certain will, but somehow I doubt Apple could look at this and go, “Oh well, blame Nokia.” I’m sure that Tim Cook must love the narrative that he saved the company by masterfully offloading all of the supply chain to third-parties, but how much longer can Apple afford not to manufacture its own products when that means subsidizing its entire competition?
Back when Samsung and Nexus phones were much cheaper than iPhones, Android was crappy enough that quality-conscious customers had every reason to stick to Apple devices. But Foxconn is entering the market right at the same time as Lollipop, and that story may play out differently.

First time using Yosemite’s batch rename: it fails. (Probably choking on the slashes in the filenames.)
RT @danielpunkass: Hard to think of other companies where love of the product is so inverse to love of the company as it is with Uber.
Mute on Tweebot Mac: “Do you want to remove the tweets?”
Tweetbot iPhone: Tweets disappear (#correctbehavior)
Tweetbot iPad: Tweets remain
I don’t necessarily hate on Safari’s “vibrancy” title bar in general — it’s not nearly as weird as Yosemite’s translucent sidebars. But when you scroll down and content disappears behind a website
position: fixed header only to reappear blurred above it, it does become really distracting.
So, if your website sports a fixed header and you care about your Mac-based users, I’d urge you to extend your header 100 pixels up beyond the page’s bounds. It’s not gonna hurt anyone, and it’ll look better in Safari. (Quick tip: you need to add
-webkit-transform: translateZ(0); to the fixed header for it to show through the title bar.)
I don’t care whether it works in real life, that design is just fantastic.
This is really what iOS 7+ should have looked like. Still mostly flat, but much friendlier.
An App Store teachable moment: Better release a sequel as a separate app rather than an in-app purchase so the cheapskates can’t ruin your ratings.
$200 headset + $700 phone and it works for 20 minutes. And a few weeks ago Oculus (Samsung’s partner) was begging its competitors not to poison the VR well by releasing shitty products.
On dirait que mon Mac a complètement ignoré le VPN depuis que je suis passé sur Yosemite, et je n’ai aucune idée de pourquoi. Youpi.
