RT @emarley: I’m a little nervous about the availability of a key which is in command-option-escape being software-controlled. #Rumors
I was wondering how unreliable the touch bar would be in Boot Camp, but if it is powered by its own CPU it could pretend to be a keyboard.
Also this better be a shitty mockup from an intern because everything’s off-center vertically, in addition to the odd margin on ‘Cancel’.
RT @tapbot_paul: The Escape key is a relic of the Patriarchy. Why would I ever want to escape Apple? Apple is Mother, Apple is Father.
I’ll get my complaint in early: the completely invisible Touch ID sensor (slash power button, presumably) is, once more, design over UX.
RT @rhtkth: This isn’t an opinion. It’s design. Same reason paraph headers have a bigger padding between them than the lines in the paragraph.
RT @rhtkth: Whitespace, whether in the form of an opening bracket line or a blank line after a method declaration makes code more readable. Period.
People are complaining about the iOS update asking for their passwords, but neither of my devices did. Have I gotten a fake update?
RT @micahflee: Upgrade to iOS 10.1 right now. It fixes a remote code execution vulnerability that’s exploited by getting you to open a malicious JPEG. https://t.co/VpY7fpJlyP
There’s a good chance that the Watch’s redeeming feature, fitness tracking, was pushed by Cook himself, for instance.
Mac mini’s major GPU glitches appeared a couple days ago, and just disappeared with 10.12.1.
I suspected / hoped it was software but this is too good to be true.
RT @noahmccormack: If you ask leading AI people about perpetuating implicit bias, they appear not to be able to comprehend the question https://t.co/sMe7Cn3xU4 https://t.co/Cp3LpI6rmd
RT @WickedGood: So maybe it’s not Apple isn’t interested, but they fundamentally don’t understand gaming and iOS games have been successful despite them.
RT @WickedGood: Those are three pretty significant failures in gaming since iOS was released, and they all took a significant amount of effort to implement.
RT @WickedGood: Apple positioned the Apple TV as a gaming console but required Siri remote control at launch and didn’t pack in a gamepad so no games sold.
RT @WickedGood: Apple built Metal into macOS but I still can’t play Overwatch on my year-old MacBook Pro, and it can barely run XCOM 2.
RT @WickedGood: Apple’s built Game Center, which has been terrible since the beginning and somehow got worse.
RT @dbreunig: “It’s remarkable that virtually an entire co’s product line has been turned into a botnet that is attacking the US.” https://t.co/5ldYnGZPXn
The iPhone could do the same for all I know (though I don’t remember Apple ever bragging about single-shot HDR?) but the technique’s interesting anyway.
RT @colincornaby: I don’t think Apple sees their relationship with developers as a partnership, but most developers do, and all developers should.
RT @tapbot_paul: If Apple didn’t contact the Dash guy on both accounts before nuking them, that’s a big problem.
