Twitter’s brand-new email notifications don’t seem to include a link to the account that favorited or retweeted you #facepalm
Let them fix that first and then I’ll complain about how the email is twice as long and half as informative (doesn’t include account bio).
Whenever someone tells me “coding is the new literacy” because “computers are everywhere today” I ask them how fuel injection works.
Took me way too long to realize the time I spent toying with 3DS Max fifteen years ago ought to culminate in creating Unity projects today.
Looking at the lovely LG Urbane watch faces, wondering why so few smartwatches offer to display both the pretty hands and a digital readout.
Even in the Apple Watch, you can only display the time by cheating and using the world clock complication.
It takes Facebook-size balls to offer a self-serving, data-harvesting, private network insecure by design and call it Internet .org.
I’d like a read-later service that extracts the text and retains fonts, colors, headers, so everything I read doesn’t become one big mush.
Obviously I’m glad that Continuity/Handoff is working again, but it’s incredibly frustrating to have no idea why it went away nor came back.
La deuxième saison du podcast StartUp, c’est facepalm sur facepalm. Incroyable que le site dont ils parlent soit financé et existe encore.
Crazy how much more typos I make in Xcode (where I half-rely on autocomplete) than in PHP.
But Obj-C is too wordy to turn off autocomplete.

I’m not convinced by the general alarmism and the idea in particular that Ive can’t steer Apple design all the way from London. In a nutshell, he’s been officially and definitively promoted to Steve-Jobs-in-chief, and that’s not a job for which he needs to be in the office every day.
What Apple needs is someone who makes all the design choices (because that’s how it’s been set up to work, because that’s how it’s been successful, and because it is a good strategy for a product company). But it doesn’t necessarily need someone roaming the halls at Cupertino, screaming at people and firing them. (I’m pretty sure Ive never tried to carry that particular torch of Steve’s anyway.)
Is there an app that translates text to a foreign language, then translates back using another service’s API so you can check for pitfalls?
…if I had an Android phone. Damn subpar iOS integration.
The Google Cardboard app isn’t available in France; saves me the trouble of dealing with the store page and its mess of unpriced options.
I wonder how well ‘Now on Tap’ will work in the real world. We’re long overdue for virtual assistants having a sense of context.
Path = me-too idea, decent execution, failure.
Snapchat = amazing idea, mediocre execution, worth billions.
Animated menus can’t save you.
Comical prototype, but intriguing tech.
