Seems just a little bit too big to get rid of the bezel and hold the tablet in your palm.
Why isn’t anybody selling a ModBook-like conversion of a 24” Cintiq + Mac mini internals (with an SSD of course)? I’d totally pinterest it.
Putain ! Je teste deux apps de gif animés, les deux me renvoient à zéro quand elles s’aperçoivent que je n’ai pas configuré mon compte Twitter.
The 7.85” iPad is too big — but it may be dictated by the need to get the same dpi as iPhone.
Scrolling in the new Google+ app for iPad gives me a headache — keeps hanging mid-animation for a split second. Is it better on iPad 2+?
Corollary: is it time to abandon the original iPad as a target platform? I’d say no, but then Apple goes “fuck you, no iOS 6.”
Twitter for iPhone adds “push-notify all tweets from this user.” Twitter for iPad… doesn’t. Shyamalan twist: IT WAS THE SAME APP ALL ALONG.
Twitter’s “third-party clients don’t follow our evolution fast enough” is already untenable in itself, but they can’t even dogfood it.
RT @PaulTassi: “Cracked Did It” is the “Simpsons Did It” of the internet. They’ve already written every interesting list that could ever be published.
“Urgent: Change Your Formspring Password.” I wouldn’t have to if you’d let me delete my account like I wanted to half a year ago, you fucks.
Sent an email with all-caps bits to Formspring yesterday demanding for my account to be deleted: 1) it’s sooo satisfying 2) they did it!
Imagine if the Amazon phone were e-ink. Read your texts in direct sunlight, like 15 years ago! Enjoy several days of battery life!
It would make all the difference between “crowding the market in a way that makes no sense” and “creating a niche for itself.”
If you read a lot on iPad, you quickly get used to keeping orientation locked, and you lose 30% of the device’s versatility.
The orientation lock setting would be better remembered per app — still handled by the OS, for consistency, but switching with each app.
Evident quand on y pense, mais je n’y avais jamais réfléchi.
RT @optshiftk: So all of us who told Apple that IAP receipt validation is worthless without a shared secret now get to scream “I TOLD YOU SO”.
RT @danielpunkass: One day the internet will serve as an authoritative reference for every datum of interest to humankind.
Excepting song lyrics.
So… people are donating to a Twitter clone project that’s spammy, and unproven beyond its solemn pledge to go bankrupt posthaste? #appdotnet
Those who suggested creating a decentralized platform had it right. Giving the keys to another company instead is just dumb. #ohbutwepromise
XMPP is decentralized. IRC is decentralized. E-mail and RSS are more primitive, but decentralized. It’s been achieved before is what I’m saying.
A bit of spring cleaning on my iPhone. Of course, as always, I can’t delete the games I’ve completely finished, or the save will be deleted.
RT @mrgan: After we’re done cargo-culting data visualization, the next design trend will be setting all numbers in roman numerals.
RT @mraleph: No SciFi author foresaw this: we are building clans around languages we speak to the Machine.
UK law is weird.
Hey, Digitick : si on ne va pas pouvoir changer son numéro de téléphone dans l’interface, demandez à l’inscription de le taper deux fois.
Ex-aequo : l’imprimante qui n’imprime qu’une fois sur deux, et Preview qui n’a pas de bouton “fais pas chier et imprime à 100% de zoom.”
Wonder how long until Sparrow is discontinued as a standalone app — unlike all the other software Google acquired, people paid for this app.
RT @stroughtonsmith: If Microsoft had any sense, they’d be trying to buy quality mobile/iOS dev houses too. They need them most of all
Can’t believe I’ve never googled that up before today.
Of course Apple wouldn’t have realized how useless dictation becomes over here if you can’t quick-switch between languages.
Fuuuuuuu. Proxi doesn’t work in Mountain Lion. I should have made a list of all my shortcuts so I could replicate them in another app.
Drink every time the Cancel button isn’t where your finger expects it to be during Instagram’s publishing process.
Funny how such a simple addition as Search-as-you-Type makes you think, hey, I could totally use Launchpad. (Though probably not, really.)
Ca commence à me gonfler de devoir réessayer trois fois chaque upload de mes fichiers de sauvegarde sur S3.
I hope Apple intentionally leaked fake iPhone 5 pics, because it horrifies me to think they’d stick to that design for a third generation.
The more I try the Podcasts app, the more reticent I feel about ever upgrading to iOS 6. It’s almost my #1 use of the phone.
