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

The 3D Touch trackpad mode on the iPhone’s keyboard has clearly been designed by and for people who never type accents. So of course it can’t be disabled.

@anildash:

Another thing distorted by the rise of immense social networks is how many users a platform must have to have enormous cultural impact. Photoshop (and Creative Cloud) has <15M users. ProTools has far fewer than that. But by serving creators, they have huge impact.

@anildash:

So when we hear that Google Reader “only” had tens of millions of users, this ignores the effect that networks of creators have on culture. [twitter.com]

@apike:

“Apple has hired Google’s chief of search and artificial intelligence” – from Google’s biggest strength to Apple’s biggest weakness. Quite a move. [nytimes.com]

@BenedictEvans:

Apple Hires Google’s A.I. Chief. Important. Probably more important: they persuaded him he’ll have interesting problems to work on, and that he’ll be able to get stuff done, which implies broader changes. [nyti.ms]

MKBHD plays with camera robots

Those example shots are incredible — I’d have assumed they were all done with post-production tricks 😲😍

@stroughtonsmith:

There should be a company that just re-houses iMac internals in a headless PC case like Modbook used do to make Mac tablets 😛

@backlon:

Twitter is going to break core functionality in Tweetbot, Twitteriffic, Talon, Tweetings, and more on June 19th. There’s no announced fix.

Twitter’s answer to the API problem: changing the deadline to unknown [9to5mac.com]

@_thp:

This is the most CLEVER phishing scam I’ve ever encountered and for a second it almost got me.

Here’s how it works: they ask you to send them the password reset code they have requested gmail send to you, claiming it will stop someone’s access but in fact it just lets them in.

@mergesort:

“We made a programming language that’s as easy to use as our products are to use.” - Tim Cook on Swift.

I believe this. Getting iCloud to sync for my mom was just about as tough as figuring out protocols with associated types.

@chetfaliszek:

How broken is Facebook? @boztank the head of VR previously head of ads retweeted this as some impossible conundrum.

It isn’t.

One is ethical and doesn’t violate housing laws.

The other makes FB more money.

Only when money drives your choices does this become difficult.

@alexhern:

“Retweet with gif” really needs to be a Twitter feature

I’m amazed that Snap isn’t giving up on Spectacles

And I don’t understand why they’d write off version 1’s unsold inventory but not sell it for a heavy discount.

@Campster:

I hate that bitcoin nerds have turned buying fundamental pc hardware into futures trading [twitter.com]

@ImmersiveLeaks:

Volumetric video capturing - This is the next revolution in 150 years of filming. Intel has launched a studio to capture motion in volume with more than 1 billion points of light.

Check out this movie made using this technology.
