iPhone can call over wifi, Watch connects to known networks… the next step is Apple becoming not an MVNO but a global wifi provider, right?
Imagine the lock-in effect if Apple invested its war chest in platform-exclusive subscription-based wifi networks covering all major cities.
I loved drawing with Flash. Adobe should rebrand, make a non-pro version again.
Now that’s innovating (if it works).
I’m the last person who should complain about this but… how did Tweetbot 2 for Mac take so long for so little change?
Literally the only thing I wanted from Tweetbot 2 for Mac was embedded tweets. (I know, “it’s coming.”) But pretty much everything they did change is for the worse:
But hey, at least the half-pixel margin around the window is gone.
Dear Weather app: all information isn’t equal. Feel free to show an actual warning when fiery sun is gonna turn to cold shower in an hour #youhadonejob
Yup, complaining publicly is now the correct way to handle it :(
Tomorrow my timeline will be all about Apple. Today it’s all about how shitty American air travel is.
RT @SteveStreza: Remember when we made fun of Microsoft for making those cheesy corporate videos with actors #WWDC15
RT @mjtsai: How can Apple know Siri’s word error rate? I almost never correct Siri errors, but it makes them all the time.
RT @wilshipley: I’m assuming Apple just spent a couple billion to buy all these magazines and publish their stories for free.
A une époque je voulais faire une app magazine pour iPad. Aujourd’hui j’ai à nouveau envie de lancer une publication iOS.
RT @CraigGrannell: Apple’s new task switcher looks like yet another motion/balance nightmare. Will Reduce Motion reduce its motion? If not: ARGGGHH.
RT @milend: So in another few years, iOS will have free-form window management, just like the Mac.
RT @maxrudberg: Spilt screen only on latest iPad. Ouch.
No UIKit for Mac yet, so my big plans for a cross-platform productivity app are on hold for another year. Good, I’ll focus on games.
Makes sense, looks good.
Putain, le racket du DUNS. J’avais oublié pourquoi j’avais créé mon compte App Store en tant que particulier.
Does iOS 9 include ad-blocker support for any other reason than forcing publishers to adopt News, where ads won’t be blocked?
I need to not be a programmer anymore by the time ObjC is killed.
This is the “Oh shit Sketch is gaining momentum” update and I’m excited.
I think the last thing Sketch has that I really want in Photoshop is the ability to enter arithmetic operations in numeric fields /cc @adobe
Every once in a while I’ll type e.g. “768*2” in a size field and be infuriated all over again that Photoshop still can’t figure this out.
Folding@home still exists, and it doesn’t seem to integrate a cookie clicker game. C’mon!
I generally share the frustration of security researchers seeing that the issues they find aren’t fixed but, considering how wide-ranging, deeply rooted, and understandably hard to fix the XARA vulnerabilities are, it’s kind of a dick move for them to have refused Apple’s request for a delay, and released a 0-day exploit, isn’t it? This doesn’t look like one of those cases where Apple just doesn’t care enough.
As for the FaceTime camera, you’d think the priority, short of improving the battery life, would be to make the device as thin as possible.
We could live without Keychain ACLs, couldn’t we? (I don’t nearly care as much about the rest.)
Taylor Swift: “It’s great that Apple Music is offering a free trial in its endeavor to finally make paid streaming music popular, but Apple, who is keeping up to 28.5% of the revenue for itself (not the profits, mind) should be the one paying for it.” Um, what?
RT @stroughtonsmith: Taylor Swift’s Apple Music issue seems predicated on everybody getting the same 3 months free at the same time. Only true for initial launch
The whole argument hinges on the idea that Apple intends to get rich with Music, which is absurd — it will only ever be drops in a bucket.
Apple Music won’t even generate lock-in since it’ll be on PC and Android. At most, it’s advertising, but there isn’t gonna be a halo effect.
Didn’t the Apple Music negotiations stall for years precisely because of the free trial terms? And now, poof, gone in just a few hours.
I was quite surprised by how widely negative the reactions were against Apple, so I guess they were too.
I wouldn’t have decided to start making games if I’d realized how much math is involved. That stuff is more annoying than AutoLayout.
Turns out it’s not just the new Tweetbot Mac — both Tweebot for iPhone AND the Twitter site truncate quoted tweets. WHY. GOD. WHY.
There’s great stuff in there.
Will probably be the same in France when Apple Pay arrives here, and that’s a letdown.
I just might switch to Chrome for the worst possible reason — because Safari takes too long to render Twitter’s un-gifs.
RT @wyan: Former Facebook employee who initiated custom gender kicked off site for being trans. It’s a good look. #Facebook #wtf
RT @sco: I’d love to use the system share sheet in my app, but A/B tests show it substantially reduces sharing.
RT @911pizzadad: Oh my god. I just asked Siri what zero divided by zero is and she brought too much realness into my life.
(via a blog post I don’t want to link to because of their idiotic editorializing)
Setting up Apple Music on my iPhone, it’s asking for my preferences at random instead of just looking at what music is on the device?!
“Passwords are over, sign into Medium by email.” Because you access your email account with biometrics.
Not opposed to email sign-in at all — I do think it’s a good idea, even — just the general angle journalists are using.
I expected personalized playlists to be longer. You can’t just start playing when you get to work and never think about it again.
RT @sethclifford: How many people are hearing this song right now?
Kind of cool to think about the scope of this…
For some reason when I switch from playlist to radio the ♥️ button becomes ⭐️ and I can’t set the song’s rating anymore. This app is weird.
RT @jcenters: I don’t need station identification, Apple. I didn’t stumble upon Beats 1 on an FM dial, I know what I’m listening to.
The Apple Music app is a perfect example of iOS tab bars making a mess of your view hierarchy by limiting the number of top-level choices.
The value of Google Cardboard clearly stops at checking whether you can spend five minutes in the worst VR possible without barfing, but those five minutes are a lot of fun and, most importantly, I’m really glad to see that my brain can endure and appreciate VR — with my lazy eye, it wasn’t a given.
