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 watched all 74 videos in Jake Paul’s course on how to become a social media star, and I have come away with the conclusion that he is a terrifying genius and we are all in serious danger. [buzzfeed.com]

Even with a new battery my iPhone 6 lags when I skip a track as if it were spinning up a hard drive.

@dhh:

Apple can surely do their part. @fmanjoo is spot on here. Letting people set limits on their usage (like, gimme a warning if I exceed 30mins/day on Insta!) or awareness of that usage would be wonderful.

@DandumontP:

Donc les gens mettent le Nexus 5X dans de l’eau glacée avec du sel (pour la rendre bien froide) pour espérer récupérer les données parce que le SoC meurt souvent après ~1 an. Bonne affaire le Nexus 5X. [hackaday.com]

@uhh_kate:

Logan Paul: Here’s a dead body

Youtube: Let’s put it on trending

Chelsea Manning: I’m running for senate

Youtube: We can’t have this

More proof youtube is a mess [twitter.com]

@patrickc:

Why can’t you easily search all of the text you read on any screen (desktop + mobile) over the past day?

It’s strange how much obvious, low-hanging fruit of this form still exists.

Those damn cross-platform apps and games making a mess of the Documents folder because that’s how it’s done on Windows.

@alexhern:

A side point, but as a fascinating example of where we are as a society: this advice doesn’t even acknowledge the existence of phone calls. [theguardian.com]

@zekjur:

This soldering reference card from @adafruit is the most to-the-point explanation of good soldering practices I have ever seen:

Backups are disabled but I can’t seem to get rid of this damn warning.

I turned off auto-balancing brackets and do you think Xcode would let that stop it? Ha!

Oh hey, while I was away from iOS development Xcode has somehow managed to become even dumber and more annoying at auto-balancing brackets while modifying code.

Alt title: Apple hands over to the Chinese government all the private data of its China-based users. [bbc.com]

Recovery partition allowed me to reinstall 10.13.2 in one click without losing anything, so at least macOS is still good for something.

How do you make a *nix kernel — which is running on a whole lot of different configurations — incompatible with third-party RAM, if not intentionally?

According to the internets there’s a good chance my problems come from having upgraded the RAM years ago, and I can’t help but wonder if Apple’s intentionally fucking up my install because it thinks I might have a Hackintosh.

Somehow my Mac mini managed to install 10.13 but is stuck in a loop of failure to update to 10.13.2. Anyone know how to make it stop trying?

“Razer’s Project Linda is the smartest take on the dockable phone we’ve ever seen”

Shame that the whole idea has been obsoleted by “let’s put all your files in the cloud” and I doubt we’ll ever manage to back away from that.

Imagine having $20,000 to spend in Nanoleaf lights for your living room (* actual price not announced yet)

“Nanoleaf made a 12-sided Apple HomeKit remote”

I’d actually want something like this. And $50 is even somewhat reasonable.

@SwiftOnSecurity:

40,100 retweets of a quote tweet of a news article link that doesn’t exist, from an account with 80 followers.

Consider how much of the world narrative you injest and accept from passing glance alone.

@MattCheetham:

iOS 11 tip: After you take a screenshot you can long press on the little preview to go straight to the share menu.

No choice but to enable LCD Font Smoothing so that at least everything is consistently a bit blurry and it’s a good thing my bank account is empty or I’d be ordering a Surface Book right this second.

I knew I didn’t want to upgrade to High Sierra but HOLY SHIT THIS IS GONNA DRIVE ME CRAZY VERY QUICKLY.

Yay, I’m not the only one; boo, it’s not just Tweetbot

In Tweetbot it seems to happen mostly when there’s no embedded media nor mention; in Finder it’s when there’s an accent in the file name.

Updated to High Sierra last night. Thought I was going crazy trying to pinpoint why text in Tweetbot felt weird, but no: it’s randomly using subpixel antialiasing for half the tweets. What the actual fuck?

@stroughtonsmith:

Meltdown mitigation looks like it’s tripling CPU usage for some cloud services, like Epic’s Fortnite back-end. This has a real and immediate impact on multiplayer games — server issues for players, and potentially ballooning costs for games companies [twitter.com]

5 January

@marcoarment:

I think the lesson to learn here isn’t that highly polished productivity apps can’t succeed on iOS — it’s that the same types of apps don’t necessarily succeed on both platforms. [twitter.com]

Apple doesn’t show any sign of planning to patch Sierra against Meltdown, so…

Yeah.

@mikeymikey:

HEADS UP #macadmins : Apple JUST updated [support.apple.com] today (Jan 5th) and REMOVED mention of 10.12 and 10.11 being fixed for CVE-2017-5754 aka #Meltdown

Only 10.13.2 contains the fix.

@erinbiba:

Super common thing reporters see:

Women: “I’m not an expert, here’s someone who is for you to talk to.”

Men: “I’m not an expert, but here are all my thoughts on the topic anyway feel free to quote me.”

@jwz:

YouTube’s Content-ID system is, by any practical definition of the words, foolproof and incapable of error. @littlescale:”My ten hour white noise video now has five copyright claims!” [jwz.org]
