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

@WhatTheBit:

Windows 10 S make a ton of sense for schools and low cost hardware.

Why it’s the default OS on a $1,000+ computer is baffling.

There’s the old Microsoft we all know and love! [pic.twitter.com]

@stroughtonsmith:

Imagine Apple’s reluctant to add upgrade pricing b/c they know that the moment they do, devs’ll use it en masse—consumers would be bombarded https://t.co/UzMjbuJCyI

I’m still frequently annoyed by the Finder labels’ transformation into stupid dots. It’s not even justified by the move to flat design!

1. Les accents sont chiants a taper et ne servent a rien

2. Ou presque, principalement distinguer le participe passe

3. Participe passer 👍

Review of the two clicker games I play on iPad:

Tap Tap Fish Abyssrium 👍

Babysitting the App Store to slog through a long list of updates 👎👎👎

@highmeh:

Educating users about the dangers of unknown USB devices? Toss this in your slide deck. [pic.twitter.com]

Needed to use the latest version of Handbrake and… oh, no wonder their binary got hijacked with a trojan 🙄

@benthompson:

This story is terrifying, not because of the terrorism implications, but for the stories of laptops exploding on their own. https://t.co/BwLmJcS4Fm

Windows 10 Creators Update 2: Creatorser.

@stroughtonsmith:

Microsoft showing off what a modern iMovie could look like, with 3D object- & surface-tracking effects, and AI 😯

The team at Microsoft that’s responsible for Paint 3D and Stories Remix is really doing a fantastic job of making Apple look old.

Ooh an OS-level visual timeline of what you’ve been working on — across all your devices, too — is a really interesting idea #windows10

Paste from your Windows PC to your SwiftKey keyboard on Android. I totally forgot that SwiftKey had been acquired by Microsoft.

Still amazing to see Microsoft attack harder and harder on the cross-platform front.

@maryjofoley:

iTunes is coming to the Windows 10 Store. Wow. That is a surprise! #MSBuild

I… I’m seriously tempted to play with Microsoft’s cross-platform dev environment. Thank god I’m too busy for that right now.

@Windows:

Introducing Timeline. Easily jump back in time to continue where you left off. #Windows10 #MSBuild [pic.twitter.com]

That’s the second time in a few weeks I have to force-restart my iPad so it remembers it has a screen.

i miss when things were advertised in void-deserts. you could sell anything in a void-desert. [pic.twitter.com]

I set a new password with special characters on my Mac mini.

My Mac mini usually reverts to qwerty at boot after an OS update.

🤦🏻‍♂️

First time I’m caught in a minor Twitter canoe since the new mention UI and I’m immediately ready to delete all my accounts.

@Vronos:

Users: Will you ever fix your site’s harassment issues?

Twitter: Congrats! Now we’ll assign you a gender if you didn’t add one. https://t.co/CrdjGapIqu

Microsoft didn’t seriously just pull a “The new iPad” 🙄

I’m more and more tempted by the Surface. If I’m not gonna get the iPad mini + Pencil that I want…

At least Surface can run desktop apps designed for Wacom tablets. Whereas third-party devs have to be suicidal to make Pencil-centric apps.

Why does everyone hate the 8-inch form factor 😔

It’s crazy how I never even think of framing a picture horizontally or as a square anymore.

Good picture of the (now fairly common) attack against ATMs by injecting commands to the cash handler. https://t.co/jKN6XHJXLw

Fun fact: on Windows, Apple provides a Chrome Extension to sync bookmarks with iCloud [chrome.google.com] https://t.co/NX92qtZkAz

Dammit, Instagram silently removed the option to post to Flickr 😡

Only noticed now because, as I said, I rarely post proper photos anymore.

The rather wonderful Oilist is currently free. If you’ve an iPhone or iPad, grab a copy. [itunes.apple.com]

Wikipedia’s search page is absolutely helpless with misspellings yet the search suggestion box almost always knows what I’m looking for.

@fet_complains:

I seriously still can’t believe this. I am removing buttons from it because they are too bright, which is a stupid feeling indeed. https://t.co/YcK12sRJgb

Whenever I happen to be curious about what’s happening on Mastodon my session has expired and I can’t be bothered.

(Hey remember Mastodon?)
