The most addictive aspect of Pinterest is how your content keeps being repinned by people you don’t know. It’s like being famous.

Deuxième fois que je visite un site où je ne suis pas identifié et je reçois du spam d’eux sur mon Gmail le lendemain. Coïncidence ou…?

Je ne sais pas où mettre mon iPhone pour que le bruit du vibreur arrête de me réveiller la nuit.

Come on, what kind of nitwit really expects Apple not to be able to see user data in iCloud? There’s even a web interface to display it!

You should simply unsubscribe from any tech blog that calls Sparrow’s tentative background polling “push notifications.”

RT @tapbot_paul: Evil TweetLonger alternative. Encode the text as part of a URL. Clients parse the URL to reconstitute the Tweet. Server wouldn’t need a DB.

Wow, Google Plus is now desperate enough to send me by e-mail the posts I haven’t gone to read on the site. Social networking 2.0.

RT @benhjacobs: Kodak goes bankrupt and Instagram is worth a billion dollars. 2012, y’all.

For the record, I think Instagram earned its buyout much more than, say, Draw Something. There’s good work and good ideas in that app.

Not convinced by the day’s speculation of a taller 4-inch iPhone: it’s not catching up with competition if the device doesn’t look bigger.

Is ICQ Messenger for iPhone a real thing? I’m pretty sure I’d never heard of it.

Getting tired of the Gmail web-app randomly failing to mark messages as read. It shouldn’t take a 100MB/s connection to handle that.

“PHP: a fractal of bad design”

Caution: this article may make you want to wipe your web servers clean.

Not sure what I think of the new Google Plus. Not sure I want to bother having an opinion, either.

12 April

I don’t get why the default state for the Google Currents app is to have a fixed list of my subscriptions take up half the iPad’s screen.

I’m offended by the way Pocket’s nice visuals simply stop at the bottom of the last item, with no border or anything (iPad, list mode).

Other than that, I think I like Pocket (not a fan of the font selection, though), but not sure I’ll bother switching all my shortcuts again.

At least the Pocket app uses iOS’s Twitter accounts, unlike Instapaper which forces me to set up just one.

18 April

Wait, Pocket managed to get away with displaying progress in the status bar? I thought that was forbidden on the App Store.

RT @ftrain: The commenters don’t read the article, the writers don’t read the comments, and no one clicks on the ads.

21 April

I wish read-it-later-clone makers would someday realize that an overly aggressive text-mode algorithm makes the service strictly useless.

24 April

RT @wilshipley: Dear iPhone: 100% of the time that I delete a capital letter and type the same letter again, I mean I want it lowercase.

17 April

RT @mattgemmell: Twitter announces that its motto is “don’t be evil”. New golden age of tech surely just around corner for credulous people.

‘Send to Kindle’ for Mac

Doesn’t sound like it does web pages natively, but “print to Kindle” should be close enough.

25 April

Frustrated. I like the Pocket app a lot more, but I’m going back to Instapaper because it doesn’t cut out half the content.

RT @WWDCGlobalPR: Introducing Session 103: Your code is bad and you should feel bad.
