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

28 April

RT @davidjbland: I’ve analyzed the Silicon Valley Bot Startup trend and created a handy venn diagram to help explain it. [pic.twitter.com]

RT @ziyatong: Roomba long exposure shots… [pic.twitter.com]

Just found out that the text clipping I’d created a month ago by dragging a sentence out of Mail was truncated after a few words \o/

The new Philips Hue app clearly shows a change of focus away from color bulbs. I’ll be pissed off if/when they stop updating the old app.

Thank you Philips for giving me a choice; doing IoT mostly right

RT @phillryu: Will my watch turn on when I look at it? Will Siri get me? Will 3D touching this do anything? Every new Apple interaction is a minefield. 🤔

RT @pkafka: Comparing Apple Watch and iPhone’s first years as a defense for Apple Watch doesn’t work. Everyone loved their iPhones.

Ended up doing the annotation on a white background in Adobe Sketch and sending it to Photoshop for compositing. Because the future is bullshit.

Is there a sane workflow for using my iPad Pro to quickly annotate an image that’s on my Mac? Can’t seem to find one and that’s ridiculous.

RT @uliwitness: Idly wondering how MacOS X would look if they brought back 10.0-style Aqua on today’s Retina screens.

Admit it, it’d probably look awesome!

RT @JordannGross: Question about preferred size of a #Scrum team made me visualize this today: “Why BIG teams fail!!1!” :) #agile [pic.twitter.com]

RT @commanda: A bash script that moves the given thing into the Trash. I use it instead of `rm -rf` [gist.github.com]

The article also makes a very good point that Apple must be much more interested in HoloLens-like stuff than full-on VR.

RT @owensd: It’s a good thing some people were actually willing to “reinvent the wheel”. [pic.twitter.com]

RT @rgriff: It sounds stupid, but really, the “Store closed” sign worked a hell of a lot better than “The page you’re looking for can’t be found.”

Oh but I could stick to my old Mini for desktop use and get a gaming PC with the remainder and oh god I need to offload my MacBook Pro now.

Hrm, I could probably replace my MacBook Pro with a MacBook One, a big Mac Mini and a huge 4K TV for the same price.

(I’ve been trying to keep my Watch under the shower lately because the NATO strap is too cumbersome to take off and put back on.)

The Watch needs a Wet Mode that uses 3D Touch to distinguish intentional presses from water droplets.

RT @jtsd: Sobering thought that our free Gmail, Gmaps etc. are being (albeit indirectly) subsidised by problem gambling [ow.ly]

Why can’t I write </div id=“myid”> and get a warning in the console if it ends up closing a <div id=“anotherid”>? (“XML doesn’t do attributes in closing tags” is not a valid answer.)

17 April

Engineers, designers, product people in general as CEOs: fad or return to form?

Instagram’s blank-search view does better discovery than anything Twitter offers. Is it so much easier for photos or does Twitter just suck?

15 April

2 birds, 1 stone: Allow unlisted apps with less nitpicky review process. We get freedom, users learn to look for App Store links on the web.

If it’s MacOS instead of macOS like all the other OSes I’m selling all of my Apple hardware. Gotta know when to put your foot down.

RT @niinegames: Some programmers, when confronted with a problem think, ‘I know, I’ll use threads’

and then two they hav erpoblesm.

To be clear I don’t care whether it comes to pass or not — if that’s really where their thinking is right now, it just shows how screwed we are.

RT @greyham: [bloomberg.com]

Why did this leak?

- is it wrong

- leaked by someone trying to kill it

- intentionally leaked to set expectations

So many developers had been clamoring “Schiller is preparing an App Store overhaul” as if the outcome was gonna be positive.

14 April

“Apple Is Ending iTunes Allowances, but Why?”

I’d never heard of them, but they do sound like a great idea for everyone involved?

Wow, I just sent 50 photos from my iPad to my Mac with AirDrop in the blink of an eye. (AirDrop has been so shitty before, I feel it’s worth pointing out.)

Either way I’ll miss that big, beautiful, stupid, unmanageable 12-inch screen.

Found a buyer for my 12” iPad Pro. Ostensibly to buy a 9” Pro instead, but it would be redundant with my Mini and I love the Mini so much…

What. Did the Apple Pencil really go from 99€ to 109€?

RT @kneath: I have this theory that using video for learning/tutorials drives away programmers (who think in text) and fast learners (who hate fluff).

RT @pmarreck: “I love stateless systems”

“Don’t they have drawbacks?”

“Don’t what have drawbacks?”
