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

12 September

Even though I’d initially gotten used to it, coming back to the pretty Apple mouse with no mouse button or, worse, scrollwheel, is quite painful.

That, and getting used to MacOS keyboard shortcuts again after two weeks on a PC.

Stevie’s Little Wonder:

“What’s really been great for us is the iPod has been a chance to apply Apple’s incredibly innovative engineering in an area where we don’t have a 5%-operating-system-market-share glass ceiling,” Jobs says. “And look at what’s happened. That same innovation, that same engineering, that same talent applied where we don’t run up against the fact that Microsoft got this monopoly, and boom! We have 75% market share.”

Macromedia Flash Player 8 for Mac OS X — that’s the one that’s supposed to be much faster than before, with OpenGL optimization, right? (I don’t know why I didn’t even think of doing a quick before & after comparison on a couple of sites.)

LaCie mini 250GB. There: I want two of these and a Mac mini on top.

Screenshots keep coming, and I still can’t get myself to believe Microsoft will dare express so clearly that they’re happy still following and copying Apple. We already knew Aquaero and Explorer RSS; now we’re up to iOffice (scroll down to reach the images) and HTML widgets… That’s so pathetic.

What’s the best way to connect a Mac to a Linux fileserver? (Until I can afford a mini-based solution@. Or an Xserve. Yum.) Samba applies Windows filename restrictions, and I never could get netatalk to work.

Google Blog Search. I’d say it’s not quite ready for prime-time considering every word of every language is going to be used in blog names.

Sony DSC-R1 Preview: of course there’s the ten-megapixel oversized sensor, but I also particularly like the top-mounted LCD screen a lot, à la medium format camera. I hope Canon will copy the idea.

Wacom Graphire 4, with a more Mac-like design and a scrollwheel on the tablet (plus two buttons, placed in a much less usable way than on the Intuos). Cool.

First time I ever try to edit a text document in NeoOffice (i.e., OpenOffice.org for Mac). My god, the big pile of crap that is… a proud of cousin of the Gimp.

Is it “normal” for Microsoft AntiSpyware (ha, haha, muahaha — oops, sorry, but it’s hard not to burst into laughter writing this) to reset Internet Explorer as my default browser every time I log in (and, presumably, make Thunderbird lag like crazy, as well) or is it just a bug with the Windows Server 2003 version?

19 September

Writing sensible email messages. Required reading for your license to use the net.

20 September

Apple Expo: useless, pointless (but I had to try it once). Mighty mouse: really pleasant to use (not enough buttons to warrant buying separately, but I’d really have liked to get it with my iMac). iPod nano: yum yum rowr rowr (I’ll start saving right now for the release of a 60GB version). Graphire 4: couldn’t get my hands on it, the assholes running the Wacom stand were so dumb it pains me to buy one after that (but what choice do I have, it’s a monopoly).

Oh, and the few (pointless) photographs will be on Flickr this weekend, because you have to be an administrator to mount a USB drive in Windows Server 2003.

Flash Earth, a Flash interface for Google Maps even better than the original.
