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

1 February

RT @stroughtonsmith: iPad will only be what Apple makes it. If not the future anymore (it was Steve’s), that’s 7 years wasted watching the Mac go nowhere either https://t.co/5UtBSnPblh

RT @vinchubang: The guys at @Iconfactory are introducing “micro UI” things only accessible with pencil. Those mini-sliders are indeed functional https://t.co/ZiOUjFbVPH

Can’t imagine it’s worth the trouble just to improve Power Nap, but it’d give Apple a reason to get macOS apps compiled for ARM before announcing ARM Macs.

Figured I’d empty the battery a couple times for calibration. It’s been like this for an hour now #RIP

RT @Jedd_Ahyoung: “What is technical debt?” Technical debt is hard to explain, but a picture is worth a thousand words. #programming #softwaredevelopment https://t.co/AG2L3VDuKZ

I’m so tempted to buy a cheap Android phone rather than spending a week and 100€ to get a genuine new battery installed.

I’d miss Tweetbot, Touch ID, and a few other small things, but most of all unlocking my MacBook with my Watch. Death by a thousand cuts.

Installer FaceApp, passer dix minutes à alterner entre les vues “original” et “hot,” sortir la bouteille de vodka et le Xanax.

(La version “smile” est assez bluffante, et drôle.)

6 February

RT @BenedictEvans: It’s no good saying ‘don’t read the comments’. The comments are running the country.

That’s a new low (“count down one hour and forty-five minutes” works fine, of course)

Also it annoys me every single time that the transcript says “countdown” instead of “count down.”

I stupidly tapped “Update All” and there are 14 partially filled progress circles right now. Anyone ever heard of staggering the downloads?

Because obviously, with all those concurrent updates, my iPad ran out of space and now they’re all stuck forever.

I guess Steve Jobs was right, huh. Mobile apps are a bad idea and I should delete them all and use Safari for everything.

12 February

RT @stroughtonsmith: Every time I spend time with magazines I wish the wider web could be more like they are. Rich design, paginated, non-interactive, permanent

14 February

RT @NathanJLiu: An awful trailer for a show nobody wants.

Apple Music — Planet of the Apps — New Series, Coming Soon https://t.co/8GDe8D4uMI

“On a un nouveau système informatique” ou comment passer sa journée entière dans une salle d’attente.

15 February

Can you believe there’s something Twitter didn’t think through

16 February

When I drag a file it would be so nice if Finder didn’t become unresponsive for the 10-20 seconds it takes my Drobo to wake up but oh well.

17 February

Ooh, I need to rethink my site’s failed-login UX

RT @stroughtonsmith: The way Apple is marketing iPad use right now is with the vertical touchscreen+keyboard they use as an excuse for keeping the Mac sans touch

18 February

Why couldn’t the damn battery be simply screwed in place?

It was a fucking struggle but I made it and it looks like I didn’t break anything

Now feeling paranoid about whether my iPhone always got so hot when charging+syncing (I think so?) and wondering wtf to do with old battery.

19 February

After two months with a battery case, using a sleek naked iPhone 6 with 24-hour battery life suddenly feels like THE FUTURE.

21 February

RT @stroughtonsmith: I really love that something as basic as copy/paste has been made unreliable and unpredictable thanks to network sync with iOS. 😛

RT @stroughtonsmith: Will pasting in this field on iPad paste the text I just copied on iPad? Oh no, it’ll take the Mac pasteboard from a minute ago. ಠ_ಠ

Instagram still doesn’t care to remember your social network sharing settings from one post to the next.

23 February

“Podcast Settings” popover closes itself every time iTunes is done loading an episode in the background — of any other podcast, too.

And the ‘Done’ button doesn’t seem to respond to Enter, giving iTunes that much more time to dismiss the popover while I move the cursor.

RT @SeanMcElwee: Twitter literally lets white supremacists openly use their service as a recruitment tool but draws the line at saying “fuck you” to the VP. https://t.co/2RT4XYzBaT

I’d been wondering how those tiny camera stabilizers could work with only 3 degrees of freedom; only occurred to me today the other three are handled digitally 🤦🏻‍♂️

Swipe one time too many on an Instagram carousel and you’re in your messages pane before you’ve had time to stop. #UX

24 February

RT @taviso: Cloudflare have been leaking customer HTTPS sessions for months. Uber, 1Password, FitBit, OKCupid, etc. [bugs.chromium.org]

FWIW I did feel like my iPhone handled its aging battery much better following the latest format-and-restore a few weeks ago.

RT @Padraig: 1Password’s marketing is getting gross. We have a gift for you! (The gift is “you can pay us for a subscription and get a few months free”.)

RT @vladsavov: Nokia 3310 vs. Nokia 3310. [pic.twitter.com]

28 February

RT @stroughtonsmith: Fun fact: hold down Home+VolUp at cold boot to boot iOS 10.3 into CheckerBoard, a new diagnostics & logs system for Apple Retail stores https://t.co/Ft9eys1Dc3

Coming from Apple’s usual outlet for unofficial announcements, the “they just mean the computer end of the cable” theory makes zero sense.
