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 August

@tomwarren:

Amazing what a cheaper iPad can do to sales. iPad sales up 15% year-over-year, but revenue is only up 2% year-over-year

@Lileks:

Pinterest has ruined image search on Google. Tiny pics, no reliable routes to original source, garbage sites. Gah.

@blakeir:

All tweets should come with the disclaimer that words were removed and thoughts were simplified in order to tweet <140 characters.

@stroughtonsmith:

Personally, I would not expect UI layout to change. Status bar would get taller to integrate w/ the cutout. The extra bottom space for Home

Can’t you just see the little Hermès watch face inside the Home button if you own the right Apple Watch? With simulated gold reflections?

This is 200% my aesthetic

The lost art of the floppy-disk jacket.

Je suis tombé sur une campagne de Call of Cthulhu enregistrée avec un micro binaural et tous les autres podcasts sont devenus inécoutables.

Paradoxe de l’obsolescence programmée : le Fairphone de 2013 n’est plus réparable alors que l’iPhone 4 de 2010 l’est [fairphone.com]

@olebegemann:

Clever use of ARKit by @i_pioneers: estimating the required box size to ship something. [vimeo.com]

@viticci:

Messages in iCloud has been removed from iOS 11 beta 5. Now coming in a future update.

@MyDaughtersArmy:

A letter from a male Mech-engineer Senior to his female classmates.

“…you and I can’t be equal.”

Reinstalled Swarm. It says I’ve disabled notifications but iOS has no idea the app wants to send them.

Also, got two location prompts in succession — ‘while-in-app’ then ‘background.’ Said no to the second and iOS decided that meant “Never.”

Oh, look! It’s the first time Notes’ iCloud sync screws up for me! (I don’t use it all that often though.)

@zackwhittaker:

Confirmed: Cloudflare has kicked “The Daily Stormer” off its network. CEO sent this email to staff. Incredible read. [zd.net]

Did Tinder rewrite its app in Unity? I’m pretty sure it used to work fine; now misses swipes and makes my phone burn up.

Right as I finished typing that tweet the screen came back to full brightness to signify the CPU was cooling down a bit.

Transmit 5’s DockSend regularly plays the “Done!” sound without actually uploading the file. You had one jerb.

I just wanted a simple FTP client that works, not a fancy-pants UI that doesn’t come to the foreground when you click on a window in Mission Control.

@chrisamaphone:

No, the moral dilemma is not about the rights of robots. It’s about reinforcement of abusive & nonconsensual ways humans treat each other

@AHosselet:

Alan Turing, well-known and hugely influential computer scientist, was forcibly chemically castrated for being gay in the 50’s. [twitter.com]

After almost a year of work I’m happy to introduce Interface — a font family for computer on–screen text. [rsms.me]

Machine-learning systems are so convinced “woman” is associated with “kitchen” that they label a man cooking “woman” [wired.com]

@RosuGrigore:

What’s the smallest undefined C program? The one in the picture is about 40 chars. It returns 3 with clang and 4 with gcc.

@RosuGrigore:

Compiler optimizations only required to be correct with well-defined programs. gcc correctly transforms the code as below:

25 August

If anything it really compounds the issue of all assistants being female. Female robot is one thing; lifelike woman is much worse.

26 August

I was importing in Photos and seeing blotches in the title bar and started moving windows around thinking, is my graphics card dying?

It’s now taking almost as long to delete 3,000 photos from my iPhone as it did importing them. (At least my MacBook’s fans calmed down.)

27 August

Three times a year I go to a sunny park and wish I had an e-ink tablet. Talk about a niche market.

@NathanJLiu:

If you want a project to show off iOS 11, this demo uses ARKit to add 3D labels to items detected with CoreML. [github.com]

@ow:

Really cool feature of ARCore is it has multiplayer out of the box. “VPS” helps you interact with other people’s AR!

@panzer:

It’s a daunting task to get AR efficiency and accuracy across hundreds of camera and CPU and IMU combinations. Good luck!

@claybavor:

Web AR experiment running on a Pixel, using ARCore.

@claybavor:

And the same Web AR experiment running on an iPad, using ARKit.

@borismus:

Smartphone AR looks so hot on twitter, but the demo underwhelms. VR is the opposite: hard to screen cap, but more impressive in person.

I wonder what happens to iPad design after 2017 iPhone. A notch-shaped thumb rest on a bezel-less tablet wouldn’t be bad.

@claybavor:

The web will be key for AR. To kickstart things, we built experimental AR-capable browsers for iOS & Android: [developers.google.com]

@benz145:

Blows my mind that it’s 2017, every functional adult human has a mini computer in their pocket, but we still pass out paper business cards.
