Comical prototype, but intriguing tech.
Finally went to check out the MacBook One. I dislike the keyboard layout much more than the key travel.
RT @flyosity: Path = me-too idea, decent execution, failure.
Snapchat = amazing idea, mediocre execution, worth billions.
Animated menus can’t save you.
I wonder how well ‘Now on Tap’ will work in the real world. We’re long overdue for virtual assistants having a sense of context.
There’s really no point in waiting for Android Wear to get iOS compatibility, since it’ll have the same flaws without the advantages, so…
…if I had an Android phone. Damn subpar iOS integration.
Is there an app that translates text to a foreign language, then translates back using another service’s API so you can check for pitfalls?
I’m not convinced by the general alarmism and the idea in particular that Ive can’t steer Apple design all the way from London. In a nutshell, he’s been officially and definitively promoted to Steve-Jobs-in-chief, and that’s not a job for which he needs to be in the office every day.
What Apple needs is someone who makes all the design choices (because that’s how it’s been set up to work, because that’s how it’s been successful, and because it is a good strategy for a product company). But it doesn’t necessarily need someone roaming the halls at Cupertino, screaming at people and firing them. (I’m pretty sure Ive never tried to carry that particular torch of Steve’s anyway.)

No, not gonna switch to Swift because it’s pithy. I just wish code completion worked well enough that I could rely on it without doubt.
La deuxième saison du podcast StartUp, c’est facepalm sur facepalm. Incroyable que le site dont ils parlent soit financé et existe encore.
Oh, I’d been wondering why smart quotes were gone from Tweetbot on my Mac; seems you can’t enable them separately for that app anymore?
I’d like a read-later service that extracts the text and retains fonts, colors, headers, so everything I read doesn’t become one big mush.
