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

1 July 2014

I’ve started customizing my trackpad gestures with BetterTouchTool. I feel like I’m on a slippery slope there. I’m gonna OD on arcane UI.

”Microsoft seizes No-IP domains”

My neighbor sometimes left trash outside his door; give me his apartment.

Shouldn’t audio technology allow a smart watch to ignore voice commands that aren’t coming from, say, five inches away, straight-on?

HEY INSTAGRAM HOW ABOUT NOT MOVING THE SHARE BUTTONS AROUND WITHOUT WARNING BETWEEN VERSIONS.

The only way a 5.5-inch iPhone makes sense is if it forgoes the 16:9 aspect ratio, right? Right? Pretty please?

The Internet’s Own Boy is making me feel woefully inadequate. It’s also a much better and more interesting documentary than I expected.

Je vous conseille les protecteurs d’écran amzdeal en verre trempé pour smartphone, on n’a pas du tout l’impression de dénaturer l’écran.

Même que sur mon prochain iPhone j’en mettrai un avant de lui faire faire un vol plané sur le goudron.

“The new half-range operator”

“OK, yes, our syntax is problematic, but we can NOT have people typing ‘+1’ when they define ranges!”

Each time the inline preview fails to load in Google Images it’s a reminder that they’re humongous assholes for hotlinking the files. Incredible.

“Who’s gonna wear a smart watch? Nobody’s wearing watches anymore.” NOBODY CARRIED PHONES AROUND BEFORE MOBILE PHONES, EITHER.

The WSJ says Apple is finally ready to get its CPUs from a new supplier. Samsung acknowledges it’s hitting the ceiling of its market positioning. The sourcing diversification of Retina displays already began a while ago. Is this when the shit hits the fan? #karma

rdar://17628154: “Kill Swift, Fix Xcode” — Daniel Jalkut

Also, having some personal experience creating new development languages for the Objective-C platform, I’d like to suggest that the appropriate way to introduce a new language is for its creators to spend several months writing nontrivial applications in the language and reviewing the results with experts. This does not seem to have been done.

Facebook Messenger for iPad permanently pollutes my visual space with a list of old conversations I don’t wanna see… nor delete.

Does iOS 8 preselect the damn text field contents when you reopen Spotlight before its value has been reset?

18 July

Knowing Overcast exists makes it painful to listen to podcasts without silence reduction and dynamic compression. But I listen on my Mac.

19 July

I can never, ever remember what the keyboard shortcut is for special characters in Mavericks.

21 July

RT @olebegemann: The glowing Apple was fun while Macs were a small minority. Now that (almost) everybody has a Mac, itʼs way to obtrusive for my taste.

15-inch Retina Modbook Pro

As much as I drool over the concept, the design is revolting.
