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

Engadget: Here comes the Upravlator!

As far as I can tell from the (few) pictures, each key/screen seems to register clicks separately on each of its sides, so you get 48 buttons for 12 screens, with functions logically grouped four by four.

Until now I was doubtful as to how a member of the Optimus line could be as beneficial to graphics designers as Lebedev said it would be, but if it works the way it seems to it should actually be a very interesting interface. The only problem is, I wonder how its price will compare to that of a similarly-sized touchscreen: sure, tactile feedback is much better and more productive, but will it actually be worth the price?

Oh well, I guess they’re positioning themselves as a luxury brand anyway.

Screenshots from the latest Leopard build. (Will probably be off the web by the time I publish this post, of course.)

This webpage is fraudulent. You should close it immediately.

Google has identified this webpage as fraudulent. Do not enter any personal information on this page.

Okay, they can blindly trust an external source’s address blacklist all they want; no matter what, I take issue with Safari giving me an order regarding what I should do on a web page.

(I expect it might be temporary, beta wording, though.)

Howstuffworks: How can a Windows virus end up on an iPod?

Apple Vice President Greg Joswiak explains in a CIO Tech Informer article: “As you’re probably aware, the majority of iPod sales are made to Windows users, so we have some Windows terminals on our production line. We discovered that one of these computers was propagating this virus.

Yeah, those Apple guys totally aren’t clueless about security at all.

(Nah, I’m kidding — the production line is far away where the sun rises and Apple only supervises it from afar.)
