I just noticed that, at least in iOS 5, “?” and “!” are swapped around on the iPad’s French tweet keyboard. Been tripping me up all summer.
I’ll give you this: the iPhone 5 is really pleasant to the touch, in all the ways the 4 wasn’t (it felt too angular and cold, unfriendly).
C’est juste du confirmation bias, ou j’ai vraiment du réseau de merde depuis que j’ai basculé d’Orange à Sosh lundi ?
I can’t wait to see an Apple VP struggle to express how “awesome” anodized aluminum is when he introduces the iPad mini.
Never occurred to me to count how many symbols Uniconsole has until a blog asked me. I think “6,800” is worth a mention on the site.
Oh, there’s no RSS feed for my Twitter favorites anymore, is there? Inching ever closer to when I’ll have to ditch the platform.
No way, TweetDeck now lets you choose to display tweets in black-on-white! Technology must have made spectacular strides this summer.
I think launching today an iOS 6-only iPad magazine is a little dumb when millions of iPads 1 can’t run it, but that’s just me.
I’m starting to give more weight to the rumor that iOS 6 screwed up the network on my iPhone 4. It does feel like software bugs.
Am I really the only one who’s always wanted the iPhone’s Music app to sort the album list by artist?
Wasn’t iOS 6 supposed to stop trying to predict what key I’m about to press? Because I’m pretty sure it’s still as annoying as ever.
RT @the_webhamster: The 6 Stages of Debugging: That can’t happen. That shouldn’t happen. Hmmm, weird. Why does that happen? Oh, I see. How did that ever work?
Je ne peux plus me balader deux heures dans Paris sans vider la batterie de mon iPhone. Nokia ou HTC ?
I actually think this is a good idea. Both portable and transportable have their place.
Looking for a music app for iOS that lets you e.g. sort albums by artist? Panamp is excellently thought-out; Track 8 is fun to look at.
I’m linking to this because I disagree with just about every single point he makes.
If I give up on Twitter I’ll miss having a simple app for quickly posting content — so I’m considering setting up a Tumblr just for that.
That is, I would post to a dedicated Tumblr using the app, and my blog would import the contents just like it does now for Twitter.
Wonder if Microsoft chose (oddly) not to have a 16GB Surface undercutting the iPad, or Windows RT is just too bad an experience on 16GB.
If it’s a matter of prioritizing their alloted API keys, then fuck you Echofon — I’m pretty sure I paid about $25 for the Mac app, not $5.
Speaking of jumping ship, I may have said it before but I just don’t get why Tumblr doesn’t do more to court Twitter’s disenfranchised.
Fini le target disk mode, fini l’OS livré sur support physique, bonjour la prise de tête pour changer soi-même le disque de son Mac.
Le mec qui suivait aveuglément l’appli Plans tout en se disant, tiens, dans ma mémoire c’était pas dans ce quartier, Macway.
I don’t like pagination on e.g. Instapaper, but I can’t imagine how continuous scrolling would be good for full-on books — you’ll get lost.
Am I the only one finding that the trusty old iMac stand looks awkward with the new design? Better invest in a wall mount,
RT @fritzswanson: I love how carefully Phil turns the iMac so you don’t see the huge bulge in the back of the machine.
I just want to know if the, yeesh, Fusion Drive doubles your chances of losing all your data at once.
Can’t believe they’re calling it a 4th-gen iPad and emphasizing it’s only been six months, in the same breath. Apology letter incoming.
There goes the hope that they had delayed the iPad mini’s release to get rid of anodized aluminum. Enjoy your scuffs.
I still feel like the iPad mini should have been just a tad smaller. Will have to judge in person, obviously.
You have no idea how scared I am of syncing my iPhone to iTunes again after I restored my Mac to a month-old incomplete backup.
RT @stroughtonsmith: Dropbox is a complete POS across different timezones. Had to disable iMac syncing back in Ireland because it was just creating conflicts
The most immediately noticeable change to the free games in Windows 8 is that they’re all designed to run primarily in full-screen mode as “Windows 8 style” apps. On the plus side, this helps create some very streamlined interfaces without distracting window borders or menu bars getting in the way. Multitaskers can play some of the available games in “snap mode” by dragging the game to a small sliver on the left or right side of the screen, but the results are mixed—Minesweeper and Wordament work fine in this compressed space, but the card layout in the Solitaire Collection gets so cramped that it’s nearly unplayable. If you want to play Mahjong or Taptiles while you’re on a teleconference, you’re going to need a dual-screen setup.
It is so sad — no, it is revolting, really — that we are abandoning the huge benefits of overlapping windows, proven over thirty years of computing history.
RT @fraserspeirs: Thought: with iPad mini on the horizon, developers are going to be flooded with requests for sync support. Even for iPad-only apps.
RT @stroughtonsmith: Android 4.2 supports multiple users on same device, as does Windows RT. iOS has a little catchup to do
Today’s Nexus announcements are full of wow, for the first time — from specs to prices to functionality.
I’m a little encouraged to see Cook willing to fire an established VP. Was surprised nobody commented on Forstall not introducing the iPads.
This is honestly the most optimistic I’ve been about Apple in more than a year. Can’t wait to see next summer’s product announcements.
Google’s voice search is pretty awesome to play with, for us who don’t have Siri. And I think I like her voice better — more neutral.
Of course, it’s ultimately bordering on useless because you have to open an app then tap a button every time you need it.
I absolutely want one.
