The value of Google Cardboard clearly stops at checking whether you can spend five minutes in the worst VR possible without barfing, but those five minutes are a lot of fun and, most importantly, I’m really glad to see that my brain can endure and appreciate VR — with my lazy eye, it wasn’t a given.
The Apple Music app is a perfect example of iOS tab bars making a mess of your view hierarchy by limiting the number of top-level choices.
RT @jcenters: I don’t need station identification, Apple. I didn’t stumble upon Beats 1 on an FM dial, I know what I’m listening to.
For some reason when I switch from playlist to radio the ♥️ button becomes ⭐️ and I can’t set the song’s rating anymore. This app is weird.
RT @sethclifford: How many people are hearing this song right now?
Kind of cool to think about the scope of this…
I expected personalized playlists to be longer. You can’t just start playing when you get to work and never think about it again.
Not opposed to email sign-in at all — I do think it’s a good idea, even — just the general angle journalists are using.
“Passwords are over, sign into Medium by email.” Because you access your email account with biometrics.
Setting up Apple Music on my iPhone, it’s asking for my preferences at random instead of just looking at what music is on the device?!
(via a blog post I don’t want to link to because of their idiotic editorializing)
RT @911pizzadad: Oh my god. I just asked Siri what zero divided by zero is and she brought too much realness into my life.
RT @sco: I’d love to use the system share sheet in my app, but A/B tests show it substantially reduces sharing.
RT @wyan: Former Facebook employee who initiated custom gender kicked off site for being trans. It’s a good look. #Facebook #wtf
Will probably be the same in France when Apple Pay arrives here, and that’s a letdown.
There’s great stuff in there.
Turns out it’s not just the new Tweetbot Mac — both Tweebot for iPhone AND the Twitter site truncate quoted tweets. WHY. GOD. WHY.
I was quite surprised by how widely negative the reactions were against Apple, so I guess they were too.
Didn’t the Apple Music negotiations stall for years precisely because of the free trial terms? And now, poof, gone in just a few hours.
Apple Music won’t even generate lock-in since it’ll be on PC and Android. At most, it’s advertising, but there isn’t gonna be a halo effect.
The whole argument hinges on the idea that Apple intends to get rich with Music, which is absurd — it will only ever be drops in a bucket.
RT @stroughtonsmith: Taylor Swift’s Apple Music issue seems predicated on everybody getting the same 3 months free at the same time. Only true for initial launch
Taylor Swift: “It’s great that Apple Music is offering a free trial in its endeavor to finally make paid streaming music popular, but Apple, who is keeping up to 28.5% of the revenue for itself (not the profits, mind) should be the one paying for it.” Um, what?
We could live without Keychain ACLs, couldn’t we? (I don’t nearly care as much about the rest.)
As for the FaceTime camera, you’d think the priority, short of improving the battery life, would be to make the device as thin as possible.
I generally share the frustration of security researchers seeing that the issues they find aren’t fixed but, considering how wide-ranging, deeply rooted, and understandably hard to fix the XARA vulnerabilities are, it’s kind of a dick move for them to have refused Apple’s request for a delay, and released a 0-day exploit, isn’t it? This doesn’t look like one of those cases where Apple just doesn’t care enough.
Folding@home still exists, and it doesn’t seem to integrate a cookie clicker game. C’mon!
Ok, en fait l’app est naze. Mais de toute façon je n’attends que Steam VR pour m’enfermer définitivement chez moi.
Every once in a while I’ll type e.g. “768*2” in a size field and be infuriated all over again that Photoshop still can’t figure this out.
I think the last thing Sketch has that I really want in Photoshop is the ability to enter arithmetic operations in numeric fields /cc @adobe
This is the “Oh shit Sketch is gaining momentum” update and I’m excited.
