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

RT @ow: Windows 10’s people bar is a great idea - desktop OS’ still pretend like social media doesn’t really exist [theverge.com] https://t.co/BkpuXvxbbR

Now iConnectHue won’t let me add the local bridge nor delete the one at home.

At a friend’s for the week. Bridge previously configured in Hue app but I must’ve chosen the wrong one and now can’t access the list again.

Every time I update an app I think, damn I miss Obj-C, maybe I should… just wait a couple weeks for another reminder of why I quit.

🤦🏻‍♂️ 🤦🏻‍♂️ 🤦🏻‍♂️

Put on Watch.

Unlock iPhone with Touch ID.

Unlock Mac with Wa… nope, it remembers “seeing” the locked Watch and doesn’t check again.

RT @LaurenGoode: OH MY GOD CAN YOU IMAGINE ANSWERING THE DOOR AND SEEING THIS NO NO KEEP THE PACKAGE OKAY NICE DOGGIE https://t.co/3t987z5Mj2

RT @botherder: Typical encrypted messaging fingerprint verification:

“Did you change phone?”

“Yes, I did.”

“Ah, ok then.”

<New fingerprint accepted>

RT @mhbergen: Company criticized for hosting “cyber-harassment, hate speech, and threats.”

Jack: I will buy that.

Faut que je change de routine, commencer la journée sur Twitter ça ne va plus le faire.

24 April

The high/low temperatures on the Watch’s face are consistently way out of sync with the actual highs visible in the Watch’s weather app.

23 April

RT @shivon: I can’t decide if this is inspiring or devastatingly Sisyphean. Or both. [pic.twitter.com]

22 April

“Trust this computer?” my Watch asks as if there were no possible doubt as to which computer it means.

RT @davegershgorn: So in essence, Facebook is using Snapchat’s avatar creation service against it. Can derivative works used for ML training cross legal lines?

RT @davegershgorn: Facebook built a Bitmoji dataset of celebrity faces to train its AI avatar creator

Reorganizing my desktop spaces in a vain attempt at self-manipulation now that all my notes and to-dos are in Notion

20 April

RT @flyosity: Documented eye injuries at Apple reported by employees who were testing prototype AR glasses. Whoa. [gizmodo.com]

TFW you wake up feeling productive for once and you spend the whole day transferring your to-do list to a fancy new tool #GTD

19 April

RT @CaseyNewton: TWITTER: Editing tweets is too complicated to implement

FACEBOOK: Someday you will hear with your skin

(Of course I wish it were a native local app instead but oh well stop dreaming this is 2017.)

I absolutely love how much freedom Notion gives you to organize your information. No exaggeration, I’ve been looking for this app for years.

I’ve migrated to Notion all the stuff that was scattered across Evernote, Trello and 2Do and oh what a glorious day this is.

Oh shit “so-and-so liked/retweeted your retweet” are still available on the site’s (and app’s?) ‘Notifications’ page. BUT I DON’T WANNA GO THERE DON’T MAKE ME GO THERE.

The silly thing with Facebook Spaces is that interfacing the Oculus hub with FB Messenger would be a million times more useful to everyone.

I really like my shimmering purple avatar in Oculus Home but it’s prob a good call for Facebook’s VR ‘Spaces’ to go with cel-shading.

RT @ow: Facebook’s social VR app scans your photos(!) to make a VR avatar for you [pic.twitter.com]

Sure hope Apple is working on an AR framework, because there’s a lot of upcoming fun experiences we’d all rather not have locked to Facebook.

Zuckerberg’s pseudo-AR-everywhere platform looks really cool but you better invest in external batteries.

“Come and create live photo filters for us!”

Anyone who’s ever developed an app for a deprecated Facebook platform: 😶

Infuriating that Twitter has stopped emailing you when someone likes or RTs one of your retweets, and Analytics ignores retweets altogether.

Between development issues, limited yield, and delayed launch, difference between iPhone 7s and anniversary phone is gonna be WAY over $100.

16 April

RT @textfiles: The Internet Archive now emulates early Macintosh computer software in the browser.

[blog.archive.org]

When an app decides to fancify its UI it’s a coin toss whether the ‘back’ gesture will be a swipe right or down. Thanks a lot, Snapchat.
