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

Pretty sure I’d saved a highlight in that Kindle sample; bought the book and it hasn’t just failed to transfer but disappeared altogether 🙄

FOUR YEARS it’s taken them to realize that maybe having Auto Layout and autoresizing masks coexisting in a xib could be convenient.

(Yes, I could have watched the WWDC videos sooner.)

OMG the autoresizing-mask UI is back in Interface Builder for Auto Layout setups. That is as hilarious as it is welcome.

RT @rjonesy: Apple’s bug bounty starts in Sept, but this guy reported 3 zero day hacks anyway. Hope Apple pays him. [twitter.com]

Click twice to unlock without Touch ID, extra tap to use actionable notifications without 3D Touch… iOS 10 isn’t friendly to older devices.

I hadn’t used Siri once on my iPhone since installing iOS 10, so I’ll be hard-pressed to notice vocal improvements. But it does sound good.

Of course shaking an iMessage extension triggers Shake to Undo, you idiot.

Still no UI in iOS 10 for managing Game Center friends? That’s a Facebook level of abandoning developers you got to rely on you.

Installed iOS 10 on iPad. Lock screen clock is flush left in landscape but remains centered in portrait. Both of these choices sadden me.

OS X update completely emptied my Login Items 🙄 Now trying to remember the name of my Pinboard client.

RT @benthompson: Fascinating: ATMs actually increased the number of bank teller jobs. [twitter.com]

RT @parrots: I just checked this, and it worked. First time. Hold me. #xcode8 [pic.twitter.com]

Est-ce qu’il y a un clone dumb et pas cher de Sphero ? Le BB-8 a un gros potentiel comme jouet pour chats, mais il est aussi très chiant.

The weather app’s UI in watchOS 3 strives to be the least convenient at every single turn. It’s quite impressive honestly.

Does Storify really have no ability to automatically extract an entire tweet thread?

Silly me, I started downloading App Store updates with the MacBook on my bare thighs. (Ouch.)

RT @csoghoian: Facebook’s chief security officer: If your firm can’t afford to hire 50+ security people, use Google Chromebooks. [twitter.com]

RT @algoritmic: An #algorithm that renders a desired input string in an author’s handwriting [visual.cs.ucl.ac.uk] [pic.twitter.com]

Feedly suddenly decides to halve the information density of its “Magazine” layout because in 2016 everyone loves white space and scrolling 🙄

Ugh, the video capture hack used by Instagram Stories and Snapchat makes them really bad ay night photography [at least on iPhone 6]. (Edit: Oops, Snapchat has a night mode. Instagram doesn’t seem to.)
