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

An iPad mini with Pencil would be a decent compromise, but I’m afraid half the benefit of handwriting may be in putting words in a definite physical location.

29 July

Trying to use someone else’s home cinema setup and immediately realizing why Steve Jobs wanted to make a TV.

The “Force Touch ≠ long-press” silliness culminates in watchOS 3 introducing a long-press gesture recognizer 🙄

You can react to a message in watchOS 3 by long-pressing on it. Force-touching does nothing. Consistency!

RT @alanzeino: spend $150 on a fancy pet feeder that doesn’t feed your cat when their servers are offline what a great design [pic.twitter.com]

(Which does beg the question of why I’m using Apple Maps, again.)

(I mean keep the map’s North up, so I know where everything is, and just display which way I’m facing, like every other maps app does.)

How on earth is it possible that Maps’ location dot still doesn’t tell you which way you’re facing in iOS 10? Is there a patent on that?

Vivement 2024, que l’app iOS de la Banque Postale gère Touch ID.

RT @olebegemann: The glowing Apple logo was a cool statement 15 years ago when there was one person in the room with an Apple laptop among a sea of Windows.

I mean, the latter half of the paragraph would indicate that they care, but how do you do something so stupid as to contaminate with recognizable information the documents you’re leaking?

RT @counternotions: Sci-fi in China.

It’s beta 3 and actionable notifications are still missing on non-Force Touch phones. Because whatever workaround they implement at the last minute won’t need testing.

Remember back when we laughed at Windows 8 because of its confusing edge gestures? Good times. #iOS10

Heat wave in Paris. Reading articles on iPad in bed. Reflexively tapped “update all” for 16 apps. Now holding a sleek, portable hot plate.

I like FastMail (good web-app, satisfaction of not using Google) but I don’t feel like their spam filter ever learns anything.

19 July

I installed iOS 10 beta 3 and I hate every single design change. But, hey, the Facebook Messenger app works on my Watch now ¯\(ツ)

18 July

J’ai acheté des écouteurs Bowers & Wilkins C5 parce que j’ai déjà un P7 et c’est le meilleur casque du monde — et je ne suis pas déçu 💜💜💜

16 July

Ohh, is that why Apple Pay adoption is lagging in countries (e.g. most of Europe) that favor debit vs. credit cards?

I’ll never not feel silly saying “Hey Siri.” And if it’s localizable I don’t understand how it can’t be customizable.
