“We have learned that this was done by a Twitter customer support employee who did this on the employee’s last day”
Embedding people’s tweets in a news story without asking their permission first is wrong and unethical even if the tweets are public and I wish sites would stop doing it
It’s like a voxpop if a voxpop was just filming people’s private conversations on the street and putting them on the news along with the person’s phone number.
By popular demand, I’ve added the hidden iPhone X notch message to PCalc for real - but only when you have 42 in the display!
I might reinstall the iOS beta profile just for the week or so of usability I get after the install clears some caches or whatever.
iPhone X as a $1000 performance capture rig for indies
In retrospect it’s rather obvious since each pixel must be modulated individually instead of making a single backlight blink independently.
If the display controller can already address pixels at 240Hz for PWM, shouldn’t it have been trivial to implement ProMotion 120Hz?
Apollo app replaces Apple’s awful volume indicator in the most elegant way possible.
The X is… fine 🤷🏻♂️ Too fat, too much bezel, screen doesn’t look that extraordinary to me. But, yes, the notch is okay in person.
If I were still interested in 4.7” iPhones I’d be tempted—mostly for Face ID—but not at this price. And thankfully I’m too used to 5.5” now.
It’s really X as in UX. Face ID + much welcome reboot of interactions that piled up awkwardly over ten years = temptation rising 😬
The next release of Tweetbot 4 for iOS and Tweetbot 2 for Mac will support the newly expanded Tweet length limit.
An iPad app with a full menu bar… 😶
Facebook could have said: “Here’s a tool for you to create hashes of anything you’re afraid someone might post in revenge. Send us the hashes and if we see matching posts we’ll evaluate their content then and take them down if needed.”
TWITTER: verification is not an “indicator of importance.”
ALSO TWITTER: we verify accounts that are in the “public interest.”
It hadn’t occurred to me but I’m suddenly wondering if 280-character tweets are implemented server-side as threads of two tweets.
any time i feel pangs of regret about UI design decisions i’ve made i’m going to remember that at least i didn’t fuck up “Carmack struggles with this” bad

How did adding images to a project become so excruciatingly slow in Xcode 9?
I guess I should be grateful 9.1 doesn’t forget which targets I checked anymore.
Apple, you’re killin me with the mismatched apostrophe curliness of the default, non-editable names of your peripherals.
That’s interesting: Animoji not only works with your face, but also with video files!
So no 3D sensing required?
Alors Gmail, je sais que si c’est gratuit c’est moi le produit mais tu vas te calmer tout de suite sur le ton employé.
Ma caisse de retraite envoie sur un formulaire de paiement tiers qui me demande uniquement mon IBAN. Comment c’est possible ? Quelle sécurité il y a ? 😨
That goes further than a misunderstanding brought on by an unfamiliarity with social interactions. That’s bigotry. And autism doesn’t cause bigotry, yet here he is, blaming it all on the world’s favorite cognitive boogeyman.
Ideally I should try anyway, just in case, but that would involve a lot of human interaction.
This has got to be the most wholesome tiddy mouse pad I have ever seen in my goddamn life lol @apocalyssart
Apparently, sometimes Google’s translation app mistakes facial features for translatable text.
Just a simple change and my old, half-abandoned app that no one uses anymore will be much prettier.
Oh, turns out I also have to rewrite all of my terrible, outdated UI code because separating the cards into two images broke every single animation.
Slack => Rebranded IRC
Soylent => Rebranded Ensure
Uber Shuttle => Rebranded Bus
Co-Living => Rebranded Roommates
“Making” => Rebranded Your Parents Hobbies
Alexa => Rebranded Surveillance
ICO => Rebranded Ponzi Scheme
Virtual Reality => actually this is new hey
React Native & Layout are doing similar things in a limited way. Hot reloading of UI changes and limited introspection of the running app.
Apple seems like it is heading in the exact opposite direction.
More static, more compile time, less dynamic or runtime discoverable.
All Google statements about mistaken data collection should be accompanied by this image
I’m not on High Sierra, but lots of replies confirm it works, including at the login prompt if your Mac is set to display one.
Interesting idea, although putting related documents into tabs means completely giving up on the advantage of windowing systems — displaying several things side by side.

BREAKING: American Airlines says computer glitch allowed all pilots to take vacation over Christmas week. Now union says thousands of flights are in jeopardy of cancellation. Americans says they’re offering 1.5x pay for pilots to fill in and expect to resolve the issue.
