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

If I were still a developer I’d be glad that the iOS home screen has started futzing with letter spacing when an app’s name is too long, but as a user I’m finding it pretty gross.

We bust myths about the new iPhone XS sensor and Smart HDR, as well as showcasing some very cool new tech in our latest deep dive:

I’ve never used my iPhone as a daily alarm clock before. Am I correct that, if I wake up early and don’t want it to ring, I have to turn the alarm off then remember to turn it back on once the time has passed? That’s where we are after eleven years of iPhones?

But sure, give the police an encryption backdoor guaranteeing access to everything on your phone and every message you send. [twitter.com]

@stroughtonsmith:

iPhone is a ‘promising gaming platform’ in the same way Twitter is a promising collection of human literature. Almost every game on iPhone could disappear overnight and nobody would care. Its lasting impact on gaming has been the destruction of pricing & rise of microtransactions [twitter.com]

@cabel:

Many years ago I converted $5 into Bitcoin at a “Bitcoin ATM” here in town. It printed out a receipt with my credentials. I recently pulled the receipt out of my wallet and it was printed on thermal paper… so it’s completely, totally blank. A metaphor

@mcclure111:

“Debate” is what Twitter is worst at. “Debate” should be discouraged on this site as much as possible. “Debate” ruins what could have been a nice place for sharing art and jokes. Twitter has decided “debate” is so important they’ll break everything else [twitter.com]

The year of “okay fine we won’t be shutting down the Mac line just yet.

we’ll just raise the cheaper models’ prices by 30% across the board.

@pierce:

Used to be, Apple made a thing better and kept the price the same. The pitch was always, “Look how much we can do now for the same price! Lucky you!” Now it’s making things better and making us pay extra for the difference. I miss the old way.

@iconmaster:

It’s literally the shavings off the iPad Pro that get reconstituted into MacBooks Air and Macs mini.

That’s a little on the nose, Apple.

What crazy person decided that Mojave’s Light color scheme should include a return of the white menu bar? We all have black bezels around our screens! 😡

Wow, the new emoji in Mojave are so great
