That’s the one use case for which I enjoy the 13-inch screen.
If you’ve ever listened to a Bitcoin aficionado and wondered how a distributed currency could realistically handle the traffic involved in actually becoming the global player they thought it would, well…
The problem was that, early on, Satoshi established a limit on the number of transactions that could be processed by the network every 10 minutes. The cap was meant to ensure that the computers supporting the network, and processing the transactions, would not be overwhelmed by an enormous quantity of data. But Satoshi had suggested that the limit should be temporary, and as the number of transactions coursing through the network inched closer to the cap, delays started to occur and transactions were not going through.
When Mr. Hearn began pushing for changes to the core Bitcoin software to allow for larger blocks of transaction data, he faced immediate resistance. Gregory Maxwell, a largely self-taught programmer who had worked on Wikipedia and the Mozilla web browser, both open-source projects, said that larger blocks of transaction data would be harder for ordinary computers to process. The result, Mr. Maxwell warned, would be to hand control over the network to big companies that could afford powerful computers. […]
Mr. Hearn retorted that the technical issue wasn’t such a big deal; ordinary computers could mostly process the larger blocks of transaction data. More important, he argued, was that Bitcoin needed to succeed first as a cheaper, faster payment network, like PayPal or Visa. If Bitcoin wanted to ever compete with mainstream payment systems, which could process tens of thousands of transactions a second, it would have to do away with Bitcoin’s existing limit of fewer than seven transactions a second.
Yeah, that’s a big jump.
RT @rgriff: If you ever feel like OS X is running great and all is fine, spend a few minutes watching Console to clear your head of that feeling.
The Transmission snafu is the best argument Apple could make in favor of the Mac App Store if the Mac App Store weren’t a shitshow.
So if you lost your data to that ransomware you could argue it’s Apple’s fault in a quite tangible way.
(I’m only speculating that’s the reason.)
That’s both terribly creepy and exciting.
Mais c’est horrible, depuis le début je regarde la VR comme un truc qui va me tomber dessus, pas quelque chose sur quoi je peux bosser.
(Video’s annoying but worth watching for the applications.)
As someone using colored Hue lights in my room I’m not sure I want my iPad’s screen to reflect ambient color temperature.

Trying to decide if I’m selling my 12” iPad Pro to buy a 9” that I’ll sell again when they finally release an iPad mini with Pencil support.
I’m back to Safari on the Mac and I’d forgotten about the magical translucent title bar and ughhhhh.
I absolutely love that we’re coming back in 2016 to text-based chatbots as the new frontier #build2016
The Apple Store app’s self-checkout still looks for the barcode off-center so the camera is free to focus on the floor instead.
