Remember when Twitter was repositioning itself as a news app just a few months ago? I guess that’s out the window now? (Thank god.)
😮 (Honestly don’t know if I trust computers enough for that)
Internet: “Check out Amazon Go! It eliminates cashiers.”
Me, thinking: We need to start talking about guaranteed minimum income YESTERDAY.
Idea: deterministically convert key fingerprints to faces to take advantage of our innate ability to recognise faces; modulo the faceblind.
Good thing iPhone & Watch timers don’t communicate as there’s no conceivable way I could keep track of 2 things simultaneously on 1 device.
Samsung: deactivates dangerously faulty device, saving injuries / lives
Twitter: what this shows is that I don’t have property rights
I’m really itching to find an application for Chernoff faces but my main project is a dating site and I can hardly go and add extra, synthetic faces to the profiles.
Going through old papers my dad gave me, I found his map of the internet as of May 1973.
The entire internet. https://t.co/0krvYoRGav
“Maybe it’s time I start buying the couple comics I read… oh, Comixology is an Amazon company, the app doesn’t have a Buy button. I tried.”
I don’t care for `if (CONST == $var)`-style conditions, but I just discovered they’re called Yoda Conditions and now I am completely torn.
TIL Apple actually ships two different types of USB-C charging cables. Hope the margins are worth it…
People download iMessage apps from the main App Store and have no idea how to access them. This is 100% on Apple. https://t.co/p70PrRA1Rg
tap What, no tap Huh? tap Wait, this isn’t “Lock Watch” tap Where the fuck did the “Lock Watch” button go? And who needs quick access to AirPlay in their Control Center?!
(I couldn’t be bothered to update to the “right” 10.12.1.)
Of all the crap Windows does I can’t get over launching an app and nothing visible happens for thirty seconds, even in the task bar.
Good range, but why no widescreen at the top? 😕
“the problems Nintendo is encountering are Apple’s fault, and they are faults…many of us have been pointing out for years” ― @StratecheryMO https://t.co/AmR5LhBGP3
On this day 20 years ago, Apple announced it was going to buy NeXT (and with it Steve Jobs) for $400M. Greatest deal ever made?
We must revoke the internet privileges of anyone who misuses ‘gaslight’ before it’s too late and we lose this beautiful word.
Made the mistake of tapping “Update All” so any app I wanna use is unavailable now — and it doesn’t look like anything’s actually downloading either.
So now I’m cancelling and restarting each individual update manually, as I should have done from the start, I guess. There are only 38 🤷♂️
I really like AirPods, but their audio latency is pretty disappointing. I wrote up some tests here: https://t.co/BIgomcD1jM
Story in the guardian about using machine learning to process bat communications — shit, but that might actually work
During those final 23 minutes, when the missiles are in the air, Twitter will be insufferable.
What the… is it specifically 10.12.2 that changed the sorting of icon-view-with-label-on-right Finder windows from vertical to horizontal?
Surely I’d have noticed if the change had been in 10.12.0? I’m looking at my folders, feeling like I’m going crazy.
I never liked Clarkson but found the show entertaining. Homophobia isn’t entertaining. Not paying £80 a year for a blasé attitude to bigotry https://t.co/wfXkOn2d19
But that only works when the country’s not big enough to put pressure on Google.
I wonder what the opportunity cost of redesigning everything from scratch for iOS 7 was? (You know, asides stability and staff retention 😜)
