Honestly I’m rather curious to see what happens after Twitter implodes. Do we, as a society, step back or double down?
So… Twitter is pretty much the one use case where it makes sense to ask “Can the blockchain save us?” right?
An experiment to see how many accounts I can create with different filters over my face (with apologies to @fet_complains).
‘Hey Siri’ worked great during the watchOS beta but fails half the time since release.
I think I need to create a @garoo_complains account.

Not that I would be caught dead wearing those things but I’d love it if they started a round-video fad.
Hoping the “app extension issues” iOS 10.0.2 fixes include that user who left a 1-star review because the widget didn’t appear in the list.
I just super-liked someone on Tinder when I meant to scroll down on their profile. Goddamn UI traps.
Gave up on Safari because it has terrible performance with multiple tabs and with YouTube.
So now I’m… checking out Firefox 😳
Sierra opens the “Do you really want to change your default browser?” confirmation popup behind the active window — if not all windows ಠ_ಠ

And I completely understand why someone would think it’s a good idea not to switch immediately to an empty tab.
But it’s not.
Safari opening new tabs in the tab bar then not switching to them until the content has loaded, that’s new, right?
RT @stroughtonsmith: In a world where most photos end up on Snapchat/Facebook/Instagram, the faux-bokeh effect on the 7 Plus is as believable as most DSLR pics
Imperfect of course but very impressive
Oh yeah I forgot to say that the glossy iPhone is a gorgeous object, but everyone already knew that. Worth the fingerprints after all.
Sorry I didn’t have the presence of mind to point out that it would be the ultimate status symbol within weeks.
Young guy at the Apple Store table seemed obsessed with Jet Black but dejected that it didn’t broadcast “I have an iPhone!” like White.
I tried an iPhone 7 for five minutes in an Apple Store and I’m now completely disgusted with my old physical Home button.
Every OS update I try Safari again but don’t remember why I switched to Chrome and what to look for. This time I swear I’ll make a list.
I’m trying Safari again, as you do after any OS update, and I forgot how nice it is to have smooth scrolling.
RT @CraigGrannell: If you don’t use a cloning tool, SuperDuper! and Carbon Copy Cloner are both fab. I use SuperDuper! daily on my main works Mac.
RT @CraigGrannell: macOS Sierra is out today. If you plan to install, back-up your Mac first, preferably cloning the entire drive. Better safe than ARGH NOOOOO
I get how that makes sense to get the best possible picture, but as a photography enthusiast I’d rather they just disabled the 2x setting.
Can’t believe I’ve had this MacBook Pro for two and a half years already. That makes it perfectly reasonable to buy a big new PC for VR!
RT @jamiepinkham: Free killer iPhone 7 accessory idea: external battery with headphone jack
And it probably makes sense because most people didn’t organize their widgets, but it makes the view significantly less useful for power users. Well, I guess that’s iOS for you.
iOS 10 remembering your scroll position in Today view completely defeats the point of putting the most important information at the top 😕
RT @The_Axx: Apparently when I click the home button to exit an app, I do it with my fingernail. Not something I ever realized until it no longer works 😐
Samsung has much better OIS, autofocus, and sound.
It works great for free, and syncs to iCloud so you can create stickers on iPad and use them on iPhone.
The iTunes Connect app’s notifications are silent therefore the Watch just displays them without tapping. That makes sense.
It wouldn’t take anything away from AirPod and Beats because most people would prefer to go full-wireless, but it would satisfy audiophiles clinging to their expensive headphones.
Since Apple have said they aren’t gonna license the W1 chip — how about releasing a standalone Bluetooth receiver and battery?
Who would have believed that, in 2016, I’d be thinking “I wish I had stuck to web development, there’d be fewer compatibility issues.”
RT @Pinboard: Point: we trust Google with far too much of our email. Counterpoint: Google may be the only organization able to secure our email
If this were a Mac I’d be able to find iMessage’s App Support folder in the backup and transfer all my old texts to the new install in five seconds 😡
And imagine if the only solution to MacBook trouble was to reformat and abandon any file that wasn’t stored in the cloud.
Starting over from a blank iOS does seem to cure my battery issues. How can an iPhone’s backup include information that fucks up battery management?
It would be so cool if iOS 11 made iMessage extensions compatible with any chat app that wants them. But that’s not the Apple way, is it.
I’m setting up my iPhone from a fresh iOS image but the App Store’s auth is overloaded so any app that checks its receipt refuses to run.
RT @reneritchie: People won’t spend $2 for a great app, but will buy 10 $2 Disney-owned sticker packs.
Psychology is maddening.
The 8-ball was originally a SceneKit view that responded to physical shaking but that triggered the text field’s goddamn undo 😠
So when I said the iMessage App Store launch wasn’t as bad as tvOS I didn’t think iOS 10 would end up as the update nobody dared to install.
RT @dhh: Don’t worry if iOS 10 just bricked your iPhone and you don’t have a Mac to set it straight. A Genius appointment is available on November 13
RT @dhh: What’s so great about bricking your primary phone is that now none of your 2FA logins work. So can’t deploy code or trade stocks 😄✌️
RT @robotspacer: H: I’ll probably wait until it bugs me to install it
M: Noooo install it now so I can send you stickers
H: Hmm, you raise a good point
RT @SavedYouAClick: ios 10 is out. you update your software the same way you always have. don’t need a blog post about it.
(Rationalizing the 4.7-inch choice.)
Some iOS 10 apps are out, some are “Pending Apple release” while blogs are browsing the App Store. Still not as bad as tvOS launch I guess.
Left my iPhone off all night (to meditate about its battery). Turned in on today. All text substitutions on my Mac disappeared altogether 😡
Second consequence: My text substitution shortcuts on my Mac returned to a previous, weeks-old version. iCloud is truly… miraculous.
RT @Pinboard: The Programmers’ Credo: we do these things not because they are easy, but because we thought they were going to be easy
Isn’t it odd that two years later no one’s done this on iOS? Using the camera in video mode to get the data, you should be able to get a nice 4K photo on iPhone 6s.
