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

Wait, since when is Google Lens accessible in the “Google” app on iOS? I was convinced it was only available for Google Photos users.

I imported 3,000 photos from my iPhone and now both Photos and my Mac in general are unusable. This is how people end up on Google Photos 😡

Just noticed that the Signal app has added a “Note to Self” pseudo-conversation and it’s such a great and simple idea, why doesn’t every chat app have this?

@Fabien_UX:

Remember when Google’s “blank page with just one field” UI was cited as an exemple of focusing on users?

Soon it’ll just be google answers and paid results. And the answers will be great, thanks to EVERYBODY who traded their content for traffic. Faustian. [twitter.com]

@JamieJBartlett:

I can’t believe what I’m seeing! While running a facial recognition pilot, one man (understandably imho) covered himself up. The police forced him to show his face (& then fined him for disorderly conduct). This is dangerous & terrifying.

Did iOS 12.3 remove the ability to swipe left on a lock-screen notification? Haven’t seen anyone mention it (it won’t be missed, then). Makes sense as non-3D Touch devices emulate it with long-press.

I’m glad I no longer have to think about where I’m swiping to access the camera.

@ow:

this demo from Google I/O is literal dark magic holy shit

I keep wondering how much of my AirPods’ battery wear has been caused by the fast-charge functionality that I’ve only taken advantage of, like, twice in the past year.

@Kantrowitz:

Facebook continues to view life as a perpetually cheery existence filled with highs and devoid of lows.

This is not how it works in the real world.

Ack

I guess they decided that, since the case couldn’t be as small and convenient as the AirPods’, they might as well make it three times as big as strictly necessary?

@otduet:

First attempt at removing cars off the roads with neural nets. Will have to dream harder.

@Aidan_Wolf:

I made a little app that lets you bring your doodles into AR, inspired by that old camcorder feature!
