Our entire concept of what a “Car” looks like is predicated on the need for cooling a block of metal trapping exploding dinosaur juice.
How hard can it be to sync timers and alarms between the Watch and iPhone? Give them a UUID so both devices can recognize them, poof, done.
Next time a vendor screws around on pricing, remind them SpaceX’s website has how much they charge to SEND A SATELLITE INTO SPACE.
DayOne or TextExpander content is by nature sensitive. But sure roll your own sync servers, put it behind https and call it “secure”.
I tried explaining Soylent to my mom and she was like, oh you mean Slimfast? I was like yes but now made by and for men, so we call it tech
I’m scping 25gb of data from 1 computer on my network to another so my network is saturated and I can’t turn on my lights. #InternetOfThings
I wanna see that in action. How can it work with one sensor being B&W?
Why would isFirstPartyHideableApp be necessary for App Store apps when by definition they’re all deletable? Is Apple going to uncouple first-party app updates from OS updates? (That makes sense for Android because OS updates are poorly applied, but not for iOS where Apple pushes updates so aggressively.)
(Sadly it looks too big for a steadicam, where post-prod focus pulling would be most useful.)
The leaked new Kindle’s battery handhold is a good idea but the rest of the design is damn ugly — which sadly makes the leak feel credible.
“Upgrade so your apps actually work!” should go over well.
“I love stateless systems”
“Don’t they have drawbacks?”
“Don’t what have drawbacks?”

I have this theory that using video for learning/tutorials drives away programmers (who think in text) and fast learners (who hate fluff).
Found a buyer for my 12” iPad Pro. Ostensibly to buy a 9” Pro instead, but it would be redundant with my Mini and I love the Mini so much…
Wow, I just sent 50 photos from my iPad to my Mac with AirDrop in the blink of an eye. (AirDrop has been so shitty before, I feel it’s worth pointing out.)
I’d never heard of them, but they do sound like a great idea for everyone involved?
So many developers had been clamoring “Schiller is preparing an App Store overhaul” as if the outcome was gonna be positive.
To be clear I don’t care whether it comes to pass or not — if that’s really where their thinking is right now, it just shows how screwed we are.
Some programmers, when confronted with a problem think, ‘I know, I’ll use threads’
and then two they hav erpoblesm.
If it’s MacOS instead of macOS like all the other OSes I’m selling all of my Apple hardware. Gotta know when to put your foot down.
2 birds, 1 stone: Allow unlisted apps with less nitpicky review process. We get freedom, users learn to look for App Store links on the web.
Instagram’s blank-search view does better discovery than anything Twitter offers. Is it so much easier for photos or does Twitter just suck?
Why can’t I write </div id=“myid”> and get a warning in the console if it ends up closing a <div id=“anotherid”>? (“XML doesn’t do attributes in closing tags” is not a valid answer.)
The Watch needs a Wet Mode that uses 3D Touch to distinguish intentional presses from water droplets.
(I’ve been trying to keep my Watch under the shower lately because the NATO strap is too cumbersome to take off and put back on.)
Hrm, I could probably replace my MacBook Pro with a MacBook One, a big Mac Mini and a huge 4K TV for the same price.
Oh but I could stick to my old Mini for desktop use and get a gaming PC with the remainder and oh god I need to offload my MacBook Pro now.
It sounds stupid, but really, the “Store closed” sign worked a hell of a lot better than “The page you’re looking for can’t be found.”
I’m amazed it works.
The article also makes a very good point that Apple must be much more interested in HoloLens-like stuff than full-on VR.
Idly wondering how MacOS X would look if they brought back 10.0-style Aqua on today’s Retina screens.
Admit it, it’d probably look awesome!
Is there a sane workflow for using my iPad Pro to quickly annotate an image that’s on my Mac? Can’t seem to find one and that’s ridiculous.
Comparing Apple Watch and iPhone’s first years as a defense for Apple Watch doesn’t work. Everyone loved their iPhones.
Will my watch turn on when I look at it? Will Siri get me? Will 3D touching this do anything? Every new Apple interaction is a minefield. 🤔
The new Philips Hue app clearly shows a change of focus away from color bulbs. I’ll be pissed off if/when they stop updating the old app.
Just found out that the text clipping I’d created a month ago by dragging a sentence out of Mail was truncated after a few words \o/
All of my “technical” designer friends have gotten into VR development in the last few months. All of them!
