I know it’s not done, that it’s a really hard problem, and that it’s “handy” to have Home etc in Mojave, but it’s all just so wrong.
Remember how we all laughed and laughed at Microsoft because Windows 8 had “tablet” apps & “native”/old apps?
How is this better/different?
Nothing to see here…
Everything is fine
Linus Torvalds: I don’t believe in “user experience” or “graphical interfaces”. The best way for anyone to perform complex operations is through a command line or an editor, preferably something with arcane multi-key combos.
Software industry: This is the man whose tools we want
I was gonna buy legit art prints online but the site invited me to sign up with Facebook then asked me for my e-mail address and a password anyway so I’ll just use Google Images and a cheap printer thank you fuck off.
Pleased my headline/image combo got through
I’ve disabled most categories of iCloud sync on my second Mac (including “Mail”) but it still refuses to delete a mail account without removing it from all my Macs.
Men communicate in a “one-up” manner, in which a man makes a statement to another, that positions himself “above” the other person, through playful teasing, boasting, firm assertions etc. He expects the other person to restore the balance also through teasing, boasting, etc
Women do the opposite. They position themselves “one-down” by complimenting the other person, self-deprecating, expressing uncertainty, etc. they expect the other person to restore the balance by returning a compliment, self-deprecation, etc.
Will have to see it in person but the Watch’s new super-rounded edges make it look sooo much better.
2017: Dear developers, please don’t hide the notch in your apps.
2018: Default lock-screen wallpaper, used in all product shots, hides the notch.
Me, every birthday in my Jony Ive voice: “Simply put, never before have I been as old as I am this year. Unprecedented. This is the oldest I have ever been.”
The nightmare for operators is that your phone pops up each Monday morning telling you who has the cheapest data this week, and automatically switches the virtual SIM, and you use your actual PSTN phone number so little (thanks to messaging apps) that you don’t care if it changes
“Oh yeah no one needs 3D Touch anyway. And you don’t really need two cameras to do Portrait mode. What have you idiots been buying from us all this time?”
This lineup is positively absurd. The only proper reason not to buy the Xr is that it doesn’t look as good with the bigger bezel. I suppose economies of scale are involved but it’s insane that it has the same CPU as Xs.
Last year’s iPhone prices: $700, $800 and $1,000.
This year’s iPhone prices: $750, $1,000 and $1,100.
Apple can finally add new screen resolutions to iOS devices without expecting developers to recompile their apps every time. Size classes & resizability finally paying off
Apple’s decision to change the larger iPhone naming convention to Max could mean we’ll see an iPhone Mini soon.
Max / Mini makes more sense than Plus / Minus
i’m running for office on a single issue: Ban All Amazon Third Party Sellers. vote for me
Apple (to consumers): “Most apps are free!”
Also Apple (to developers): “Get your apps ready for the new hardware!”
Me: Umm… I think I’m going to opt out. Thanks anyway. 🤦♂️
Là, je pense que c’est un pari entre développeurs complètement bourrés, je ne vois pas d’autre explication
Jokes are such a weird thing to exist… it’s like the brain going “Ohoho, you fooled my branch predictor? I’ll give you some nice neurotransmitters for that”
I appreciate the honesty.
Shortcuts is out and my playlist-launching shortcuts still make the Today widget crash (because they take too much time and/or memory) 😒
Well, at least the app itself’s main screen makes it much easier to launch shortcuts than Workflow did.
Mind you, this makes the Xr an even better value proposition — with a wide-angle sensor like this, who needs a shitty second camera.
I bet the Xs is gonna go back to cropping the wide-angle shot instead of using the telephoto when the setting is a little dark, in cases where the X would have used the telephoto camera.
Fast Company: Apple’s new watch face “is an insult to the user’s cognitive load”.
Traditional luxury watchmakers: Hold my beer.
The rumors and speculation on the subject seem to have died down, but wouldn’t the Xs/Xr mess of a lineup make a lot more sense if the Xs was — or had been intended to be — compatible with the next Pencil?
Maybe the most bananas thing I’ve learned about iPhone XS is that if you shoot 4K 30fps video, it actually shoots 60fps with every other frame stepped up/down, and then stitches the frame pairs together on the fly to create extended dynamic range.
People are really struggling with the fact that the XS series iPhone’s mount the SIM card the opposite way to previous models. This is like the 3rd one I’ve seen, including one who is trying to demand credit from Telstra for the inconvenience of a faulty launch model
Many people think diversity and inclusion is an additive process (add more “diverse” people) when really it’s a subtractive process (remove the hostile people).
Ironically, Marzipan is pretty much exactly the same strategy as Microsoft’s UMP, which everyone cited as an example for Apple to follow. The difference is that Win32 apps do deserve to die.
I never wanted ‘iOS apps on Mac’ I wanted ‘UIKit on mac’.
Like how UIKit powers: iOS, WatchOS, and tvOS.
But they have different UI designs and input mechanisms.
Watching Lars Ulrich on stage talking about how @Metallica uses @salesforce software for customer engagement and thinking that adult life hasn’t turned out exactly the way I thought it would. #Dreamforce2018
I was really surprised to find out recently that XXX was widespread because I could have sworn — still could almost swear — I’d started using it, decades ago, without any external influence.
If there’s one feature I wish Twitter had it isn’t editing tweets, it’s being able to reply to a friend’s retweet to that friend and not the original Tweeter.
