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

Funny how Windows runs without a hitch from a USB 3 drive except for refusing to update itself, apparently.

Aaaand my user account on Windows 10 is borked, because I followed the suggestion to link it with an online account. FFS.

My iPad keeps emptying text fields while I’m typing and pretty soon it’s going to fly through the window.

I assume ten-finger-typing is triggering some sort of shortcut in iOS 9′s trackpad mode, but there doesn’t seem to be an option to turn it off.

THIS WAS THE APPLE WATCH THE GODS PROMISED US

Can you really not create custom title/caption layouts in iMovie? That’s absurd.

Snapchat vendra ses utilisateurs plutôt que vendre à ses utilisateurs

J’aimerais beaucoup voir les chiffres pour savoir s’ils abandonnent parce que le business n’est pas viable, ou s’ils avaient vraiment le choix.

Aux dix faux comptes qui m’ont ajouté pile à la même seconde : vous avez peut-être mal interprété le mot “spam” dans “follow-spam.”

Oh, right, the 15-inch MacBook doesn’t have a numeric keypad because the trackpad would have to be off-center

I like how they were reluctant to move the trackpad all the way so it looks bad and probably is a little annoying to use.

So tired of flat design I have a sudden urge for my desktop to look like a Diablo screen with little characters acting on physical objects.

Related: if I was gonna name my voice agent Cortana I’d differentiate my OS by actually showing a humanoid presence on screen.

Don’t care if commentators find it corny, it wouldn’t have to be. (Not that I’d trust Microsoft to do it well, though.)

Guess what I’m saying is, I’m sad that today’s Apple is as removed as anyone can be from the possibility of friendly personification of its devices.

I’ve been playing with Logic Pro X and it keeps surprising me that such a powerful yet well-designed app is coming out of today’s Apple.

Appropriately enough, I find the new GarageBand’s “Live Loops” mode completely befuddling.

Apple hires a VR/AR UI expert

I hope they’re working on something more interesting than a Gear VR — but I doubt it.

I’ve always ignored the “iPad is doomed” crowd but, damn, that’s not pretty

Would there be any downside at all to Apple offering an all-you-can-eat subscription to the App Store and paying devs according to usage?

And also a literal holodeck (though necessarily limited to one person, as the projected image adapts to the participant’s precise location).

Latest Tweetbot Mac goes back to DM list when you press Cmd-Left and it turns out I literally cannot stop myself from using Shift-Cmd-Left while editing.

So here I am screaming at my computer in rage and agony.

I ended up drafting my DM in another app; it was that or throwing my computer through the window.
