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

Recently dawned on me that, while it only recently became painful, I’ve had warning signs of carpal tunnel syndrome in my left wrists for months, if not more. And the only asymmetry between my wrists is that I wore my Apple Watch on the left arm — possibly way too tight 🤔

This dude is GOD MODE with a drone, just… WOW

In case you missed the point, this is why we regulate banks! (TLDR: crypto exchange founder dies suddenly, customer base locked out of $137M-worth of BitCoins held on encrypted laptop with no recovery plan/fallback option because this “bank” was basically 30yo dude with laptop.) [twitter.com]

I was thinking about changing my Twitter handle again and my brain visualized opening the “New Tweet” window and typing /nick…

My iPhone 7 Plus with a brand new battery can hardly get through a three-hour train ride through the no-service countryside and I have this nagging feeling it didn’t use to be quite so bad a few years ago, even though the phone batteries were mich smaller.

Of course my year-old AirPods can also hardly (bloop) get through that train ride but that’s (bloop) much less surpri

It’s cold and the tram is too crowded, why don’t I try one of those electric scooters you see at every corner Oh, on second thought I’m not sure how much I trust this service.

AirPods 2 to cost 25% more than previous model, to the complete surprise of absolutely no-one.

This is entirely pointless and impactless but, as someone who endured an updated iPhone 6 for months without knowing what was going on, it still warms my heart to read this on (the very bottom of) Apple’s (region-specific) home page.

Oh no I’ve been away for Twitter for three months and now I did a dangling modifier I might just as well shut down my account in shame.

@AASchapiro:

This isn’t getting nearly the attention it deserves: why are Apple & Google hosting a Saudi app that lets men block grown women from traveling & sends

“male guardians” SMS alerts when women cross borders? [businessinsider.com]

FREE ADVICE: If you’re trying to make people forget about harassment on your platform, don’t give high fives to people who have harassed on your platform. [twitter.com]

@SnazzyQ:

Apple was the best in the industry at easy upgrades/replacements/repairs when they cared about easy upgrades/replacements/repairs.

@jipraus:

It’s done! Mechanical tulip as a present for my wife. When caressed it blooms into various colors. And will never fade. #freeform #jewelry #arduino

@jipraus:

So far the best color I get out of #mechflower is a rainbow. It creates this incredible ambient light all over the room. Thank you @adafruit for these magnificent NeoPixels!

I have two dev accounts, neither of which is configured on a device. Apple’s 2FA is heavily biased toward multi-device usage, so I feel pretty sure this change, however well-intentioned, is gonna turn out to be highly inconvenient.

Tweetbot doesn’t get Like notifications anymore so I enabled them in the Twitter app. Of course they don’t include @ handles because Twitter hates them, but tapping the notification brings you to… a view of your tweet. Because yeah that’s fucking useful.

I’ve been taking pictures of the uncharacteristically sunny weather for half an hour and only just remembered that the Camera app doesn’t take RAW photos 😡

Today in web development from hell: signup form’s big, conspicuous password-strength meter says “Strong ✅” but the server rejects it and forces me to add a digit.
