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

3 November

Had my iPhone bumperless for three days and the aluminum is already full of dents from when I fell asleep on a bench and it dropped to the pavement.

6 November

I hate being on this side of customer support. So I guess that means I hate being on either side of it. And I hate++ that I’m on both.

7 November

Hmf. I know I have a Flac-to-AAC application somewhere on this Mac, but can never remember what it’s called.

8 November

I think Oink has a good idea, but the interface and structure don’t quite work. Curious to see if I end up proven wrong.

Trois heures plus tard, mon iPhone essayait encore péniblement d’uploader mes trois photos sur le Photo Stream.

9 November

Heh. Been listening to a lot of new music the past two days, never occurred to me to click the “Ping” dropdown. Just tuned out the button.

I don’t quite understand how Read It Later’s text view manages to cut off sentences in the middle. But it’s somewhat problematic.

I’m perfectly fine with Reader shares moving to Google+ — but not with having to click the +1 button four times before the popup will work.

There was a glorious period during which I didn’t get a “This will interrupt an Ajax call” warning when closing Gmail. I miss those times.

Because, yeah, what kind of user would file their messages away… and then want to leave Gmail? That’s just asburd.

Promotional videos by Adam Lisagor are the new Flash splash screen.

Ah ben oui, étonnamment, le son est tout de suite meilleur dans le casque si je vire les enceintes Logitech à 30 € en intermédiaire.

5.0.1 has been on “50 minutes remaining” for half an hour. Not gonna get my multitasking gestures any time soon, am I.

“There was a problem downloading this iOS update. The connection timed out at 90% of your download. Click here to start again from zero.”

Didn’t wanna risk the OTA update, but looks like iTunes’ absurd lack of rudimentary download management will force my hand.

The ReCaptchas are becoming more and more indecipherable, yet I haven’t failed one yet. They’re just a bluff now, aren’t they?

Now would you kindly remind me what are all the things I turned off to get my iPhone’s battery drain more manageable?

11 November

Shit. Been waiting 8 days for Uniconsole 1.5 to be approved, and just found out iTunes Connect thinks it’s never been uploaded.

Reeder for Mac losing the Share button, fine, but not replacing it with a Plus button, annoying. Mostly Google’s fault, I know (no official API), but still — the entire Reader API is not available officially either.

14 November

Ca existe, des clients BT pas buggés ? Mon µTorrent est limité à 3 downloads simultanés, il en a quinze en cours quand je me réveille.

Travailler avec des gens qui n’ont pas les extensions de fichier et numérotent leurs fichiers 001A.mp3 (A pour audio) et 001T.txt (T pour…).

J’ai fermé µTorrent pour faire de la place sur la connexion ; ça doit faire une heure et demie que l’icône dit “Quitting…”.

15 November

Mon client m’a envoyé deux zips de 600 fichiers. OS X a mis le flag “avertissement pour fichiers téléchargés” sur chacun en les dézippant.

I shouldn’t have to open Safari on iOS then wait for my bookmarks to sync. That is not what was sold to me.

Je sais, malvenu pour un dév d’être radin, mais… il y a un équivalent à TaskPaper, Mac+iOS avec synchro Dropbox, pour moins cher ?

17 November

Sync podcasts to my iPhone, listen on the iPhone, delete from iTunes before syncing back => iTunes stops downloading cuz I don’t listen.

YAY! It does say “via Uniconsole on iOS” when a user tweets with it — I guess it only starts doing that once the app is approved.

18 November

The new Comic Zeal is very pretty. It’s also lost all my comics so I don’t know which I’ve read anymore. Handle your updates better, people.

21 November

I like the idea of Stamped but it can’t afford to operate as a silo. Instagram took off precisely because it posts photos to Facebook.

Incidentally, the way Instagram managed to build its own social graph on top of Facebook’s is quite the miracle.

When 4 hours of e-book reading eats 50% of my iPad’s battery, I have a really hard time resisting the 1-Click button on the Kindle page.

23 November

I don’t understand the wear pattern on my MacBook’s keys. It’s like someone’s been trying to trace the letters with a chisel.

25 November

Well, it’s happening. It took me all of five minutes to read ALL THE THINGS in Google Reader. I feel so empty.

Did Readability announce its iOS app before it was approved because they’re fools, or to pressure Apple?

Well, they’re fools either way.

27 November

Arg, my online backup was among the unspecified bunch of things that OS X didn’t restart after its kernel panic, a week ago.

29 November

App finding my connection too slow, “pausing” the download of my magazine, neglecting to show a Resume button.

Adobe, we can’t not fuck up™

30 November

2011 pet peeve: the random series of delays between the times when each of your Apple devices lights up to notify you of the same new email.

Not sure if Path is well designed or just over-complicated, but I don’t see that it brings anything useful.
