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

3 March 2015

Bad conversational podcasts are annoying, but respectable. This new wave of nerds trying to do Serial without a tenth of the talent, however…

6 March

RT @radtoria: You never really know a person until you hear them try to solve their mother’s computer problems over the phone.

7 March

RT @ryan: TC’s report that many Apple Watch have “nearly ‘stopped’ using their phone during the day” matches what I’ve heard: [techcrunch.com]

Two hours to charge. Did it have to be induction? With contact charging, couldn’t you have plugged it in just 10 minutes at dawn and dusk?

8 March

RT @philletourneau: First time using a dual-sim on iOS, not used to seeing that at the top of the screen. [pic.twitter.com]

9 March

Okay, time to place my bets.

Sport: $349/$369 (38/42mm)

Steel: From $500 to $900

Edition around $4000 unless they introduce gold bracelets

With an option on “We’ve been able to squeeze the cost of the Sport model down to $300!”

The most useful “size class” in iOS storyboards would be “screen is wider than tall” and vice versa, but of course that’s not an option.

You don’t have to make EVERY FUNCTIONALITY into a single word + Kit.

RT @tapbot_paul: Can you people live Tweeting from the event tag stuff with #spoiler?

Force Touch being a continuum instead of binary will come in handy for the iPad Pro, won’t it?

RT @boucher: The gigantic iPhone strapped to your arm kind of ruins the whole point of having the watch.

The watch has “Hey Siri”? And it works from 3 feet away? What could go wrong.

Evidently it’s true you’ll place your most used apps on the outer borders of the home screen. Awkward, but I’ve got no better suggestion.

Fifty bucks for 4 additional millimeters. Go fuck yourself?

Seriously, any doubt I might still have had as to buying the Watch evaporated when they announced a completely unjustifiable $50 difference.

Honestly expected Apple to reveal some new functionality to justify the Watch. More and more certain Jobs would never have greenlighted it.

RT @johnaugust: People who drop $10K for  ᴡᴀᴛᴄʜ will also bitch about paying $1.99 for an app that runs on it.

RT @stroughtonsmith: Most egregious is the new non-deletable homescreen icon for the Apple Watch app: prime advertising space on every iOS device. Dirty trick 😂

RT @BenedictEvans: The luxury goods industry has long used $10k products to sell $500 products. That’s a halo that Samsung will never be able to follow.

10 March

RT @charlesarthur: Apple Watch can store 2GB of music (and play it to Bluetooth headphone), 75 MB of photos; 8 GB storage total.

12 March

RT @nchan: 3d printed 38mm and 42mm apple watch sizes, compared to Asus zenwatch. [pic.twitter.com]

RT @iFixit: We’ve got your first look inside Apple’s Force Touch Track Pad. [bit.ly] [pic.twitter.com]

Obligatory visit to the Apple Store: the new trackpad must be filled with magic and fairies. Clicking feels 100% real.

Functionally, however: I hope click-vs.-force-click is off by default, because it’s gonna confuse A LOT of users.

I apologize for thinking all this time that haptic feedback must be bullshit.

13 March

RT @dkdsgn: Photoshop experts try using Photoshop 1.0. [youtube.com]

14 March

I need to set up Notifyr again on my iPhone to see if push-notifications-over-Bluetooth has become moreliable in iOS 8.2.

RT @dannysullivan: Tech progress is amazing. Twitter means we live with typos. Instagram makes square photos normal. Meerkat means vertical video is a thing.

16 March

I can never decide whether “swipe left” means left-to-right or right-to-left — yet I have no hesitation with “swipe up.” Only me?

Holy shit, I hadn’t even seen Enlight’s tools for custom color filters. You can make your own unique cross-processing presets!

17 March

RT @tapbot_paul: Google Play switched over to having apps reviewed by humans. No one noticed, meanwhile we’re still at 7+ day reviews.

[techcrunch.com]

Dear iOS photo app developer: the system camera is a swipe away from the lock screen, so stop assuming I’ll ever take a photo in your app.

18 March

19 March

RT @BenedictEvans: PSA: Apple added flyover for Venice

If y’all don’t stop writing about Apple Watch all the time, I’m never gonna be able to resist buying one at launch.

20 March

RT @SkylerFoxy: A group of wolves is called a pack.

A group of crows is called a murder.

A group of developers is called a merge conflict.

25 March

RT @harrymccracken: I love Facebook’s Paper & like Instagram’s Layout, but think that Facebook should work harder to choose unique names. [blog.mikeswanson.com]

Worth nothing that if someone buys the wrong Layout app on the App Store then asks for a refund, Apple will basically bill its developer $0.60.

26 March

It looks a lot like someone got a preview of Periscope and described it to a developer who then decided to create Meerkat, doesn’t it? No wonder Twitter cut off their access to the social graph.

27 March

28 March

Presque deux ans après avoir emménagé, je peux vous donner un pro-tip: si le wifi marche mal, mettez un câble à la place.

I need to become a renowned artist in the next 15 years so they have a reason to offer downloading my consciousness into a computer.

30 March

TimeWorks’ crashing bug is finally fixed

That app is a lot more important to my workflow than Fantastical 2.

31 March

People are gonna line up on April 10 to be the first to touch a Watch and go home without one. Apple fandom is becoming a caricature of itself.

J’ai fait un petit truc pour iOS

(Je sais, personne ne met plus sa musique dans iTunes ET personne ne met de notes.)
