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

@JamesR_Affinity:

Edited an old RAW image in #AffinityPhoto #iPad today, so fun to use! Here’s a quick time-lapse video: https://t.co/EEIpEFD5JX

Hey, Twitter, feel free not to send me an e-mail notification when I’m added by someone who already follows 14,000 people.

Rechargeable AAs used to be recognizable at a glance to avoid the obvious mistake. Good that I use a modern brand-name charger that went 🚨🚨🚨

@franktinsley:

Tilt Brush but anywhere your camera can see stuff and infinite volume. Insane! #arkit #madewithunity @madewithARKit https://t.co/9e4950RT9P

I’m happy to report that while SpringBoard looks lovely in 120Hz it has not pushed me to throw out all my devices.

All the third-party drawing apps looked terribly laggy compared to Notes. Does faster Pencil support need special code?

I’ve only just watched the WSJ’s interview video for the iPhone’s anniversary. There isn’t much in it that we didn’t know before, but I enjoyed the software keyboard’s story, as told by Scott Forstall:

One year away from launch, they couldn’t figure out the keyboard; Forstall froze development of all system applications for a few weeks so that every engineer could offer their own take on it. One of them (I wish we knew who) came back with the intelligent keyboard we know and its dynamic hit regions.

I feel like iOS and watchOS would have a better UX if Apple did this more often. If you got ten people each trying to reinvent the Notification Center, surely you’d get a better result than the incremental deterioration of the last few years. Or the Watch’s awful Weather app. Or…

I made an app to tweet textshots of my blog posts \o/ Now to find out if I’m able to write entire paragraphs again.

@tapbot_paul:

At $1200+ would cause me to not buy it and I’d probably skip the s model too. If I can’t have the best why bother?

Goddammit I’m not gonna reboot my Mac just so the emoji palette manages to find valid screen coordinates, am I?

@jckarter:

JavaScript 4K demo competition! Build an amazing app with fewer than 4096 dependencies

@waxpancake:

This Amazon bot is generating thousands of phone cases from random photos, and it’s amazing. (via @rjurney) https://t.co/n63W4eo9Q5 https://t.co/VX2Ch7xn9v

TIL that you can access Lightroom’s “Clarity” setting (and the others too) in Photoshop’s “Camera Raw Filter” \o/

Do you realize how offensive this is to a number of your prospective users?

Trying to sort my projects by likeliness of having a shippable MVP in a month because I just need to ship something.

@DynamicWebPaige:

1) Pick an industry

2) Ask people in that industry what they use spreadsheets for

3) Build something better

@actioncookbook:

TWITTER, 2009: this is neat, Shaq responds to people and stuff!

TWITTER, 2017: the insane president’s idiot son is live-tweeting treason

Personne ne semble s’être rué sur l’Oculus à 450 €. Le futur est à la porte, je suis le seul à avoir lu de la SF quand j’étais jeune ?!

@alexhern:

There’s a power cut in my tower block. The room where the engineer can fix it has an electronic lock. It’s broken. Cos there’s a power cut.

I mean, if isolating you from the world was the problem of VR/AR, sharing what you see with everyone is certainly a solution.

“How We Resurrected a Dragon”

The page in question hijacked scrolling so I never went far enough to notice it was interactive WebGL 😒

@onovotny:

You may want to install that iOS 10.3.3 update ASAP if you don’t want a remote takeover of your phone via WiFi

@CaseyNewton:

Instagram is reshaping the restaurant scene and it’s wild. Chambongs, ham walls, flamingo murals and more —> [theverge.com]

Is Apple paying for NPR’s suddenly automatic “Listen to it on Apple Podcasts [or wherever]” line?

@AndrewProjDent:

ARKit + CoreLocation, part 2

@DirectiveGames:

The Machines running on #ARKit powered by #UE4! [bit.ly] @EpicGames @UnrealEngine #ar #AugmentedReality @Apple

Using third-party auth removes friction at signup but it’ll only make your life harder later (user complaints + cumbersome edge cases)

25 July

I find it so depressing — in its symbolic appropriateness — that Apple went from “Mac vs. PC” to “The Rock × Siri” in less than a decade.

I now have a small white spot on my 3½-year-old rMBP’s screen and I strongly suspect it overheated one night after failing to go to sleep when closed.

@adambanksdotcom:

Microsoft: “No more Paint”

World: Aww, Paint, we liked that

Adobe: “Hey no more Flash!”

World: …

A quand les espaces coworking dans les parcs parisiens ? Wifi, barista, chiottes propres et verdure.
