Fast Company: Apple’s new watch face “is an insult to the user’s cognitive load”.
Traditional luxury watchmakers: Hold my beer.
I bet the Xs is gonna go back to cropping the wide-angle shot instead of using the telephoto when the setting is a little dark, in cases where the X would have used the telephoto camera.
Mind you, this makes the Xr an even better value proposition — with a wide-angle sensor like this, who needs a shitty second camera.
Shortcuts is out and my playlist-launching shortcuts still make the Today widget crash (because they take too much time and/or memory) 😒
Well, at least the app itself’s main screen makes it much easier to launch shortcuts than Workflow did.
I appreciate the honesty.
Jokes are such a weird thing to exist… it’s like the brain going “Ohoho, you fooled my branch predictor? I’ll give you some nice neurotransmitters for that”
Là, je pense que c’est un pari entre développeurs complètement bourrés, je ne vois pas d’autre explication
Apple (to consumers): “Most apps are free!”
Also Apple (to developers): “Get your apps ready for the new hardware!”
Me: Umm… I think I’m going to opt out. Thanks anyway. 🤦♂️
i’m running for office on a single issue: Ban All Amazon Third Party Sellers. vote for me
Apple’s decision to change the larger iPhone naming convention to Max could mean we’ll see an iPhone Mini soon.
Max / Mini makes more sense than Plus / Minus
Apple can finally add new screen resolutions to iOS devices without expecting developers to recompile their apps every time. Size classes & resizability finally paying off
Last year’s iPhone prices: $700, $800 and $1,000.
This year’s iPhone prices: $750, $1,000 and $1,100.
This lineup is positively absurd. The only proper reason not to buy the Xr is that it doesn’t look as good with the bigger bezel. I suppose economies of scale are involved but it’s insane that it has the same CPU as Xs.
“Oh yeah no one needs 3D Touch anyway. And you don’t really need two cameras to do Portrait mode. What have you idiots been buying from us all this time?”
The nightmare for operators is that your phone pops up each Monday morning telling you who has the cheapest data this week, and automatically switches the virtual SIM, and you use your actual PSTN phone number so little (thanks to messaging apps) that you don’t care if it changes
Me, every birthday in my Jony Ive voice: “Simply put, never before have I been as old as I am this year. Unprecedented. This is the oldest I have ever been.”
2017: Dear developers, please don’t hide the notch in your apps.
2018: Default lock-screen wallpaper, used in all product shots, hides the notch.
Will have to see it in person but the Watch’s new super-rounded edges make it look sooo much better.
Women do the opposite. They position themselves “one-down” by complimenting the other person, self-deprecating, expressing uncertainty, etc. they expect the other person to restore the balance by returning a compliment, self-deprecation, etc.
Men communicate in a “one-up” manner, in which a man makes a statement to another, that positions himself “above” the other person, through playful teasing, boasting, firm assertions etc. He expects the other person to restore the balance also through teasing, boasting, etc
I’ve disabled most categories of iCloud sync on my second Mac (including “Mail”) but it still refuses to delete a mail account without removing it from all my Macs.
Pleased my headline/image combo got through
Linus Torvalds: I don’t believe in “user experience” or “graphical interfaces”. The best way for anyone to perform complex operations is through a command line or an editor, preferably something with arcane multi-key combos.
