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

Va, va, va te coucher serein après avoir complètement cassé la page d’accueil de ton site en uploadant le mauvais .htaccess.

I thought The Verge was supposed to do journalism better, not post fifteen articles in an hour on the same subject.

Huh, the Gaydar app for iPhone opens a third-party payment page in Safari when you want to upgrade. Tsk, tsk.

I’m finally productive on my app yesterday, and not only does an old client come out of the woodwork with urgent requests, but the Facebook API breaks and I can’t test sharing.

6 May

I find the new style of Facebook’s “Friends” box in timeline profiles disturbingly un-Facebooky, even if it’s pretty.

7 May

RT @tedlandau: Got fed up with need to “unlock” documents in Lion. Found option to disable it, stupidly located in SP>Time Machine>Options.

RT @mattgemmell: I ran the full Creative Cloud numbers a while back; seem to recall that subs remained cheaper than Master until year 7.

Wow, the Google+ app for iPhone went from one extreme to the other: it’s pretty, but a huge waste of screen space. And still no iPad version, despite the Flipboardish layout?

11 May

J’ai assez sur mon compte pour acheter un iPad 3 et mon vieil iPad rame et lagge et plante (par manque de RAM). Must. Resist.

Who wants to bet that the rumored non-Google maps in iOS 6 will be shit outside the U.S.?

13 May

Le twit-spam s’est calmé, ces derniers temps, ou c’est juste que j’ai moins parlé d’iPad ?

15 May

The language bug in Facebook’s SDK is still not fixed, ten days later. Wanna bet that my two iPhone apps will be rejected because of it?

16 May

Can’t wait for Sorkin’s movie to explain how everything Steve Jobs did was to impress his estranged daughter, or some comparable tripe.

Apple iPhone Charger Teardown

“The circuit to do this is surprisingly complex and innovative.”

Using a Nokia Lumia 900 as a hammer

Wow. I don’t think you could do that with an iPhone — and I’m not trying.

22 May

Well, I’ll never know what’s new in Coda 2 because it’s all in a video with no playback controls that stutters on my slow connection.

Disabling Lion’s automatic app termination

Gotten somewhat used to tolerating it, but can’t see any reason _not to disable it.

24 May

Facebook releasing Facebook Camera for iOS weeks after buying Instagram: that’s some Microsoftian shit right there. “What’s a ‘strategy’?”

I do hope Instagram inherits the revolutionary technology that allows filter thumbnails to use your photo for preview.

26 May

I downloaded Coda 2 but can’t be bothered to install the new toy and play with it. I’m pretty sure that means I’m getting old.

Mountain Lion changes

“Ask to keep changes when closing documents” should make autosave even less intuitive. Yay.

Clearly they realize we hate autosave in OS X, but they’re trying to please us without taking it out, and it may very easily make it worse.

I’m told that “Ask to keep changes” may in fact do the right thing: essentially switching autosave to temp files. If so, yay! (via @Hixair)

Acheter VueScan parce que les drivers de mon antique scanner ne marchent plus sous Lion, ou acheter un nouveau scanner ?

Vu que le scanner de ma mère fait en deux secondes ce que le mien fait en trois minutes dans VueScan, ça sera : nouveau scanner, un jour.

RT @tapbot_paul: Regardless of production/distribution costs, digital media should be cheaper for the simple fact that you can’t resell when done.

With the temperature in my room, I don’t know if I’m more afraid of running SuperDuper or not having an up-to-date backup.

29 May

Damnit, pinterest, there’s no reason for the bookmarklet to fail when presented with a direct link to an image.

Stop using Javascript to force fixed-position overlays on your iPad-specific layouts, it makes my iPad 1 crash.

Heh. Heh. Je m’étais naïvement dit que je pourrais glisser-déposer les colonnes dans LibreOffice pour les réorganiser.

30 May

Do you remember the time when it was unthinkable for a site to go two years without a redesign? Do you remember the time when we fell in love?

31 May

Pas flippant du tout quand le Terminal se met à te dire “You have no name!” et “Go away, you don’t exist!” — oh, c’est rien, faut rebooter.

Real-World iAd Stats

Better than I expected. (But of course it must depend on what kind of audience you have.)
