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

24 June

RT @steiny: An appeal to everyone I know who works at Twitter, Facebook, Google etc, and for the people who influence them [pic.twitter.com]

How many macOS apps will be available day-one to trigger Siri when you say “Computer!”?

23 June

RT @Pinboard: Machine learning is like money laundering for bias

21 June

Face-aware Liquify. There goes my productivity today (if I manage to get the updater to open).

20 June

RT @mrgan: Kudos to Apple for pushing to exclude the “rifle” emoji. Next step: make the “pistol” a pink watergun. MS gets it! [pic.twitter.com]

19 June

Je cherche des écouteurs in-ear à 100 € qui fassent un aussi bon son que mon casque B&W à 400 €. Ca paraît raisonnable, non ?

18 June

After months of saying I’d never do public VR demos because of cooties, I spent yesterday afternoon strapping a multitude of GearVRs to my face ¯\(ツ)

17 June

RT @rosyna: Microsoft has a blog post on why hidden SSIDs harm security. They cause connecting clients to always broadcast it. [blogs.technet.microsoft.com]

Actually should refrain from judgment, because 3D VR forces my lazy eye to work, so it wows me by just being much more 3D than real life.

Fact #2: playing 360° videos is an incredibly lame use of VR goggles. Actual 3D or bust.

Fact #1 from a GearVR demo today: the tracking on an S7 is a million times better than Cardboard on an iPhone 6. Properly impressive.

Les démos stéréoscopiques font immédiatement travailler mon oeil paresseux ; c’est très drôle mais il va me falloir des lentilles.

Beaucoup trop de vidéos 360° foireuses à l’installation GearVR mais les deux-trois attractions en vraie 3D valent le coup.

RT @feltron: Style transfer is neat, but this technique is amazing. Less filter and more creative tool: [prostheticknowledge.tumblr.com] [pic.twitter.com]

RT @rosyna: Holy hell… multiple apps already use the iOS Music library fingerprinting technique to violate privacy?! [twitter.com]

15 June

The new watchOS UI is designed around the fact that people use few apps. But the main reason people use few apps is how much they suck in the current OS, on the current device. So that’s not very future-proof.

Ooh, je me demande dans quelle mesure on peut considérer que ça s’applique aux apps de drague

Looking at screenshots of the new notifications, widgets, and the Music app — I guess this year’s endemic issue is low information density?

Like every three months I’m annoyed at how much Twitter has shaped my self-expression and decide to fall back on Tumblr for mid-length posts.

14 June

RT @siracusa: APFS: default on all devices in 2017 (no month specified). In-place, non-destructive conversion of HFS+ volumes.

RT @tapbot_paul: Yeah relevance is really winning. [pic.twitter.com]

RT @Freerunnering: iOS now ignores ‘user-scalable=no’ because of everything abusing it

[twitter.com]

RT @fffabs: SF Mono font without installing Xcode 8 [dl.dropboxusercontent.com]

RT @jesse_squires: The A5 SoC and 3.5” iOS devices are dead. 🎉 No support in iOS 10. [arstechnica.com]

I want to believe that the rejection of gamepad-only apps cost the new Apple TV dearly in its first year.

13 June

RT @drbarnard: App Review Guidelines were completely re-written. Will take some time to digest. [appstorereviewguidelineshistory.com]

RT @klaustopher: New Filesystem: APFS #WWDC2016 [pic.twitter.com]

What’s the point of Messages so aggressively playing catch-up with Facebook Messenger if they’re not gonna go cross-platform?

Crazy that the Watch’s ‘Digital Touch’ lives on in iOS 10.

RT @reyner: Nothing has gotten louder applause at #WWDC2016 than tap-to-replace emoji.

RT @bzamayo: iOS 7: Super thin fonts.

iOS 10: Super thick fonts.

iOS 13: A reasonable font weight.

Can Bozoma Saint John do all the keynotes from now on? 😍

RT @drbarnard: Let’s just forget the past year and call this watchOS 1.0.

Microsoft wins by acquiring the only social network they can never be blamed for making worse.

12 June

I don’t understand how my iPhone 6 still manages to take selfies

11 June

RT @jaredsinclair: 1/ Apps used to have similar interactions w/ aesthetic variety. Now they have the same flat aesthetic but wildly different interactions.
