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

@FogleBird:

Watching the plotter never gets old…

@Thomasbcn:

Google hiding the ad label a little further.

Next step light grey?

Enjoying the sun on the river bank and fruitlessly googling e-ink laptops, like every spring.

@m4rkmc:

Samsung researchers have released a model that can generate faces in new poses from just a single image/frame (for each of face, pose). Done by building a well-trained landmark model in advance & one-shotting from that.

This gif is my favourite…

@andreasklinger:

Videos of people from one photo 🙀

Also works with photos from the past and even paintings.

This is crazy 😲

I’ve disabled sharpening in four different hidden submenus and the picture still isn’t quite right. TVs are wild.

Wait, since when is Google Lens accessible in the “Google” app on iOS? I was convinced it was only available for Google Photos users.

I imported 3,000 photos from my iPhone and now both Photos and my Mac in general are unusable. This is how people end up on Google Photos 😡

Just noticed that the Signal app has added a “Note to Self” pseudo-conversation and it’s such a great and simple idea, why doesn’t every chat app have this?

@Fabien_UX:

Remember when Google’s “blank page with just one field” UI was cited as an exemple of focusing on users?

Soon it’ll just be google answers and paid results. And the answers will be great, thanks to EVERYBODY who traded their content for traffic. Faustian. [twitter.com]

@JamieJBartlett:

I can’t believe what I’m seeing! While running a facial recognition pilot, one man (understandably imho) covered himself up. The police forced him to show his face (& then fined him for disorderly conduct). This is dangerous & terrifying.

@stuntbox:

Must read: Two U.S. data recovery firms that claimed to offer high-tech solutions to ransomware attacks were actually just paying the ransoms and charging victims extra. [features.propublica.org]

Did iOS 12.3 remove the ability to swipe left on a lock-screen notification? Haven’t seen anyone mention it (it won’t be missed, then). Makes sense as non-3D Touch devices emulate it with long-press.

I’m glad I no longer have to think about where I’m swiping to access the camera.
