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

I find it flabbergasting that Pinterest, a site that is solely dedicated to showing pictures of stuff, still has this stupid dark overlay moving from image to image as you scroll, unless you take extra care to place the mouse cursor in the margins every time you stop using it

I started thinking, I hope Instagram doesn’t decide they need to show more of the captions… then I realized that must have been a factor in the scrapped UI redesign where you swiped between posts as if they were stories https://t.co/3ichygSBNw https://t.co/CZSpgLAoPH

The minimize-to-dock animation is such a cute reminder of what used to be. I suppose Apple’s anti-fun brigade forgot it exists because they only use full-screen windows, which can’t be minimized.

@AnandWrites:

What Silicon Valley promised was the break-up of concentrated power.

What Silicon Valley gave us is greater concentration of power than ever.

Now five companies control America, instead of 100. And a lot of those companies are whiter and more male than the ones they disrupted. [twitter.com]

@dhh:

This would be real progress. Like counters, follower counters, and all the other forms of bragging metrics on social media are a pox upon us all. [techcrunch.com]

@Freerunnering:

Periodic reminder that the original Twitter for iPad was one of the best iPad app UIs ever released.

@broderick:

I’m so glad we let tech platforms eat the journalism industry.

Now, I can sit and watch a live stream of Notre Dame burning while YouTube’s fake news widget tells me about 9/11 for some reason.

@axelsimon:

Well, crap. This is a (technical) reality we need to adjust to, and a (political) reality we need to do something about. [twitter.com]

Finally looked at why my transactional emails’ attachment icons didn’t show up on Mac. Started suspecting I was doing something wrong when I couldn’t find any complaints on Google.

Turns out Mail messes up a bit if you put your message inside a <table height=100%>.

@Carnage4Life:

It’s wild that Twitter is quite swift at taking down tweets that offend big media copyright holders even from verified entities but death threats to @IlhanMN sit untouched for weeks.

Never forget that addressing abuse isn’t a hard problem, it’s just one they don’t care about.

@oysterFAKE:

never underestimate human potential

@PPathole:

Tech enthusiasts: My entire house is smart.

Tech workers: The only piece of technology in my house is a printer and I keep a gun next to it so I can shoot it if it makes a noise I don’t recognize.

How watching Tiger has changed post-smartphone.

iTunes is not going anywhere—not for many, many years. It will remain the only way to organize local libraries and sync devices, because Apple considers local libraries and local sync as deprecated.
