RT @mattcomi: They were gonna call it Schrödinger’s iCloud but figured the Schrödinger’s bit was obvious.
Asshole iPod touch (which has been turned off for a month) still thinks it’s January 1970 even after I’ve synced it to iTunes.
Hint: it can not ever be January 1970 in the lifetime of this iPod. So why doesn’t it rush out and find a date, any date, on the internet?
The real story of Carrier IQ is, carriers are so dumb they need to rootkit your phone to have statistics of your texting usage.
RT @librarythingtim: Saturday, instead of taking your child to a bookstore, show them your Kindle library and say “When I die, you’re not licensed to use this.”
I’m late to the party but — holy shit, you can have a “follow” button on your site that makes people follow you without any confirmation?!
It’s looking a lot like @arqbackup’s auto-update downloaded an older version, which then borked my backup. If I’m right, wow, well done.
An interesting EC2 success story. Don’t think I’ve ever seen an Instagram outage. (Except for when all of EC2 went down, Google tells me. But that’s a different kind of outage.)
Hrm. In 2011 I learned MAXFILESIZE is a PHP field, not an HTML standard, so of course the browser isn’t gonna warn you a file is too big.
Pissed at how hard Apple makes it for devs to keep supporting older versions of iOS. And I know it’s not entirely by accident.
Bought another round of comic readers for iPad yesterday. Can’t believe how hard it seems to be to get it right.
I bought a comic reader for iPad that’s been hung for ten minutes… trying to import its own included “welcome” comic.
The new Xbox dashboard is pretty, but I hate how it scrolls pane by pane in a list. Should switch to actual scrolling when not using Kinect.
Wouldn’t have bought the pinstriped Jack Skellington avatar if I’d known the Xbox Live app for iOS wouldn’t have antialiasing. Ouch, my eyes.
I need to take a day off and rest my eyes. What the fuck can one do for a whole day without looking at a backlit screen?
The concept is not just amazingly rude, it’s also completely outdated from a technical perspective.
Sell a $2 app, spend days explaining to someone how to install it onto their iPod. When I get tired of that job, what will I turn to?
The Xbox Live app replaces Metro’s signature half-off-screen visual elements with iOS’s tiny, easily missed paging dots. That’s silly.
Ungh, c’est la saison du renouvellement de tous mes noms de domaine à la con, et ça fait mal aux dents.
I hadn’t used the official Twitter app for iPhone in months, but I’ve got a strong feeling this new version is worse, not better.
So, where I was wondering if it was the last Brichter design or the first post-Brichter, I’m strongly leaning toward the latter.
I’ve got new-new Twitter and it still displays my background first when loading another profile. Grr.
MacBook not booting. I hate, hate, hate myself for deciding to trust FileVault when I installed Lion. Apple + data = tears. Always.
Apparently my FileVault is so busted that it makes Disk Utility crash in recovery mode. Fucking joke. Not funny in any way.
Okay, I think it’s time to disable that crap.
Facebook Timeline is a very pretty design overall, but the two-column layout with random jumps is just not readable.
Not sure which is worse — the kernel panics and corrupted FileVault volume due to third-party RAM, or being back to the stock 2GB. Slooow.
I’d say “about time” but really it’s more “too little, too late.”
I was trying to write a blog post and, damn, I’d forgotten how hard it is to develop an idea over several sentences. Too much work.
The iPad did turn out to be a media consumption device. So it is entirely possible that Apple could release a 7-inch model.
Je crois bien que SensCritique ne m’intéresse plus assez pour que je prenne la peine de rentrer tous mes goûts musicaux maintenant.
Does Instapaper for iPad tend to forget font sizes or do I actually keep bumping the size up? Am I getting blind?
Yeah, Mr. Reader is good enough that I can probably scrap my plans to make my own client. Let’s look at Reddit instead.
I know sync is hard, but when you’re relying on Dropbox you pretty much lose any excuse for screwing it up. Hi, TaskAgent for iOS.
