In case you missed the point, this is why we regulate banks! (TLDR: crypto exchange founder dies suddenly, customer base locked out of $137M-worth of BitCoins held on encrypted laptop with no recovery plan/fallback option because this “bank” was basically 30yo dude with laptop.) [twitter.com]

My iPhone 7 Plus with a brand new battery can hardly get through a three-hour train ride through the no-service countryside and I have this nagging feeling it didn’t use to be quite so bad a few years ago, even though the phone batteries were mich smaller.
Of course my year-old AirPods can also hardly (bloop) get through that train ride but that’s (bloop) much less surpri
Oh no I’ve been away for Twitter for three months and now I did a dangling modifier I might just as well shut down my account in shame.
me: guillotines are things
Apple was the best in the industry at easy upgrades/replacements/repairs when they cared about easy upgrades/replacements/repairs.
It’s done! Mechanical tulip as a present for my wife. When caressed it blooms into various colors. And will never fade. #freeform #jewelry #arduino
So far the best color I get out of #mechflower is a rainbow. It creates this incredible ambient light all over the room. Thank you @adafruit for these magnificent NeoPixels!
Tweetbot doesn’t get Like notifications anymore so I enabled them in the Twitter app. Of course they don’t include @ handles because Twitter hates them, but tapping the notification brings you to… a view of your tweet. Because yeah that’s fucking useful.
The Marzipan strategy seems pretty clear at this point: hybrid AppKit/UIKit apps are not happening. You don’t get to a universal app by having a vastly different codebase and framework dependencies on macOS. You also need to preserve iOS’ sandbox & perhaps even distribution model
I get the feeling that if Marzipan’s primary purpose was to benefit the Mac, it would be taking a very different tack at how it integrates with macOS. Marzipan, as I see it, is going to benefit iPad, Apple, customers & developers, at the expense of what makes a Mac a Mac
Use “Document/Open from full document reference” to open an actual URL. It’s just a shame that somehow the emulated browser chokes on HTML entities but lets emojis through.
When websites say “use our app, it’s much better”, they mean better for them, not you.
engineers on a normal work day:
“Hmm, anyone know how to open a folder? Ugh I’ll just google it.”
engineers interviewing other engineers:
“How is the geodesic distance between quaternions defined and what are the implications for complex rotations in non-euclidean 4-space?”
I’m amazed by how many people read the article about Facebook’s moderating farms and came away with the idea that Facebook needs to treat its moderators better, rather than this is untenable and there’s no solving the problem by throwing money at it (besides working on AI).
There is no amount of money that makes it okay for your job to be watching conspiracy theories all day plus the occasional surprise snuff movie, you psychopaths.
Huh, did TweetDeck’s designers suddenly discover the concept of information density while I wasn’t looking? Not that I’m gonna switch away from Tweetbot, but it looks usable now, and doesn’t even seem laggy either.
