Understandning design feedback
Literally hundreds of Amazon orders placed over nearly 2 decades, but I ordered some batteries 2 days ago, so…
Every time I update my portfolio it reminds me that some of the most interesting designs I made were for my blog, and blogs are dead 😔
And also everything is flat now 🙄
So, how long until Twitter cut off API access to 3rd party apps? They’re cutting it off for their 1st party app…
As far as I’m concerned grayscale mode would be perfect if I could just automatically exclude a couple of apps (Darkroom and Instagram on iOS; Xcode and BBEdit on Mac).
Photoshop tip: if you’ve never customized the appearance of the Layers panel, you’re in for a treat. Hit the pancake-stack button to the right of the word Layers, go to Panel Options… Enjoy!
It’s already been speculated that the Apple Watch was made to keep Jony Ive happy — but in that case he wanted to make a fucking solid gold watch so he was not about to object to any price.
I have a theory that Apple launched the HomePod as a thank-you to the audio engineers who do great, unnoticed work on iDevices and Macs. Maybe they lobbied to keep the price somewhat affordable?

Boston Dynamics: “YES BUT OUR CREATIONS WILL STILL DRIVE FEAR INTO THE HEARTS OF CHILDREN, YES?”
what if Boston Dynamics’ and Magic Leap’s business model is just to make viral videos
Took me a while to figure out how the tweeters work — looks like they send the sound down (not what you’d expect from the x-ray view), meaning the HomePod has to compensate for wildly different surfaces on which the sound will reflect, from wood to metal to glass 😲
