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

Even in the Apple Watch, you can only display the time by cheating and using the world clock complication.

Looking at the lovely LG Urbane watch faces, wondering why so few smartwatches offer to display both the pretty hands and a digital readout.

Is Google failing me or did actually no one try to reverse-engineer the Watch’s pairing screen?

Took me way too long to realize the time I spent toying with 3DS Max fifteen years ago ought to culminate in creating Unity projects today.

RT @davepell: Samsung is basically a cover band at this point.

RT @StartupLJackson: Whenever someone tells me “coding is the new literacy” because “computers are everywhere today” I ask them how fuel injection works.

RT @mrgan: My first week without an Apple Watch: an honest review [mrgan.tumblr.com]

Let them fix that first and then I’ll complain about how the email is twice as long and half as informative (doesn’t include account bio).

Twitter’s brand-new email notifications don’t seem to include a link to the account that favorited or retweeted you #facepalm

I feel like iOS used to be smart enough not to scroll-to-top the active app when you swiped the Notification Center down. Misremembering?

Well done, quickly adjusting to a changing market

I like the design; it’s probably significant though that it’s not shown on a wrist for size.

Wish I could set up keyframes in Interface Builder and animate between them in code. You know, flat design coming alive through motion and all that.

Let’s do this but in landscape. Wrists are wider than tall; it’ll never look like an old-school watch so stop trying.

“Nokia is gonna make smartphones again” is the new “webOS is coming back.”

The problem isn’t that stainless steel gets scratched, but that the Watch isn’t designed to look good with scratches #realworlddesign

Just figured out that what people call the Watch’s “air gap” must be the glass needing to be thicker to withstand Force Touch. (I knew it had to be the glass’s thickness, but blanked on the reason why.)

Trouble getting iTunes to sync my Photos albums to iPhone. Is there gonna be a point when iOS devices are just unusable without paid iCloud?

25 April

I was adding black rounded corners to my iPhone apps before the Watch made it fashionable again.

Am I really gonna have to buy a wifi-enabled camera and use its shitty app just because Apple’s Lightning camera adapter only works on iPad?

Buying a digital camera is so hard. There are multiple brands to choose from! It’s anarchy!

21 April

Wow, I submitted an iTunes Connect bug and it was fixed in five days. It would almost encourage me to post more (but not really).

20 April

E-ink is (hopefully) gonna be the one differentiator that allows Pebble to survive, and I can’t see why it wouldn’t work for tablets too.

I’m still waiting for a full-featured tablet/laptop with the same color e-ink as Pebble Time. Several-day battery + usable in sunlight.
