Hi! My name is Cédric Bozzi, I make websites and iOS apps, and this is my blog about technology (mostly a Twitter archive, really).

If Apple’s marketing was doing its job properly I would not be surprised that the AirPod case is the same size as a Watch.

RT @asymco: AirPods in relation to some other everyday objects [pic.twitter.com]

RT @cabel: Mac Accidental Pro Tip: if you double click the side of a window (with the resize cursor showing) it resizes that side to the screen edge!?!

RT @ESYudkowsky: Starfleet UX designers learned that if they didn’t make some bridge consoles explode, captains would ignore damage until the shields failed.

Does iOS compile LLVM bitcode on-device? It had never occurred to me but that would explain why updating apps brings devices to their knees.

My iPhone 6 now turns itself off if I start updating apps AT 99% BATTERY. I so should have stayed with iOS 9.

RT @taramann: iOS dark mode coming soon? Lots of dark UI in these official UI element kits from . [pic.twitter.com]

RT @stroughtonsmith: New Photoshop/Sketch file from Apple encompassing all the current iOS UI controls (Sherlocking a bunch of outlets): https://t.co/KSKEknxRMT

The worst thing about iTunes Connect’s Media Manager is remembering you have to be thankful it exists at all.

Did I miss something or is nil-messaging — my personal bugbear regarding Swift — the one topic they didn’t talk about?

I can’t remember who it was that asked me a week ago why I’d stopped working on apps.

(Got an e-mail from a user asking why there are padlock icons on the keyboard, because App Review would rather have that than an explanatory message.)

Ah, found the e-mail and yes, they did reject my app because the keyboard extension dared to mention the IAP needed to make it functional.

I feel like the change I wanna make in my app was rejected a year ago, but I’m not sure and there doesn’t seem to be a way to check 🤷🏻‍♂️

I liked YouTube’s regular digest e-mails but they’re gonna have to go if I can’t opt out of the “so and so is streaming live!” notifications

Meanwhile the MBP is very clearly weaning us off physical keyboards. What’s the point of keeping a mechanism if the travel is that short?

Couldn’t find even a mention of the AirPods at the Apple Store but, fret not, at least there’s a table with two goddamn “Designed…” books.

A Twitter client that keeps outgoing tweets in an editable buffer for ten minutes — one minute for replies.

RT @tfadell: Exactly! No doubt in anyone’s mind which was the right path. Those on the iPod based UI knew is was doomed. SJ pushed us, “Make it work!” https://t.co/LHq6jQaAew

RT @tfadell: Wrong!!! There was never a competition. We, together, were searching for the best solution. Steve asked us to test all the possibilities… https://t.co/DNkT2WZnqV

And it’s not CR’s job to realize that turning the cache off somehow causes completely random power consumption issues.

Can’t believe a bunch of people in my timeline are blaming Consumer Reports rather than the bug. Disabling the web cache in a performance test is a pretty obvious step.

RT @mrgan: A decade into the mobile-computing era, webOS remains my favorite visual design. Clear, rich, friendly. [pic.twitter.com]

Every time his keynote videos pop up again I feel nostalgic for all the directions in which he’ll never get to push technology.

I guess the the fact that no one else emerged as The Next Steve Jobs makes me feel better about failing to be The Next Steve Jobs myself.

RT @NathanJLiu: Ten years ago, with unrivalled showmanship, Steve Jobs changed the world. [youtube.com]
