how to deprecate an interface
Copying folders, there are two duplicates.
For the first macOS offers to stop, replace or merge.
Only the second I’m allowed to skip.

Cool feature in iOS 11: add Magnifier to Control Center. Even with healthy vision, handy for reading tiny/inaccessible text (via @foozmeat)
(The article fails to mention there’s a demo.)
This tweet brought to you by the Instagram messages I miss because I’ve had to disable sounds for the ‘Like’ notifications.
“It’s still an open question whether people will accept self-driving cars.” Huh? Oh, yeah, sometimes I forget I live in a tech bubble.
Dear @biz: This is the platform you created. Nazis are coming here because they know you allow them. What are you going to do about it?
This was @twitter’s response when I reported a guy who tweeted 34 consecutive violent death threats #WomenBoycottTwitter
Remember when Apple killed backward compatibility of apps with a new OS and then made it impossible to revert to the old OS? Good Times!
Funny how package delivery is so obviously, universally, acceptedly terrible that it’s the only service which never asks users for a rating.
I really think Apple lit a privacy fire under everyone’s feet and the Google of two years ago would have answered “eh no big deal.”
At least Google’s reaction was appropriately diligent.
Today marks the third time one of my iPhones has vibrated itself out of alignment with its wireless charging pad over night.
The problem is actually easy to fix: instead of asking for the password directly, iOS should tell the user to open the settings app
I wouldn’t want to overreact just because I have lost access to constructed written thought after two tantalizing weeks, but hear me out:
I don’t think anything prevents a third-party app from providing the same kind of real-time translation, but it would look really good for the iPhone to offer that functionality out of the box, too. (If Apple can find the right company to buy.)
Real time translation with the Google Pixel Buds headphones. OK, that is super cool and I have nothing snarky to say about.
Isn’t this the first keynote where Google repeatedly makes a point of having the AI run, and the data remain, on-device? Thanks, Apple!
Google’s giving free unlimited Google Photos storage to Pixel 2 users…time to step up, Apple.
Come to think of it, why doesn’t every camera handle low-light situations by taking a lot of short exposures and aligning them together, instead of a single, blurry long exposure?
Damn, the Google Assistant stylus is a genius concept. I don’t think even the legendary Microsoft Courier thought of that.
Now that Amazon’s putting cameras in all its Echos, the idea of having Google mics all over your apartment feels so much more mundane.
