This is why the press and Apple shouldn’t trust reports based on repair data alone.
Bringing/sending in a laptop for service is hugely disruptive for people, who own them because they need them.
It’s easier to live with a flaky key than to go without your MBP for a week+.
This right here is borderline dystopian
As for me, I’m quite content to find out that you can disable the prompts entirely.
Why can’t I give my favorite photo-editing app blanket permission to modify any photo on my iPhone? Especially given that the edits are stored non-destructively.
I’ve been very impressed by what I saw of the P30 Pro. I mostly use my iPhone for Twitter and Instagram, so I’d actually consider switching if any of my favorite photo editing apps were on Android.
Have people already pointed out that Marzipan, by introducing desktop paradigms into the codebases of many iOS apps, would make it pretty easy for Apple to introduce an impressively functional version of this in 2020?
At a friend’s for the weekend; I was going to watch Netflix but the auto-playing trailers sent me into a UX rage spiral. The lack of a setting to disable them is so user-hostile it makes me want to torrent all of their original shows, on principle.
Battery falling down a hole

Never forget that addressing abuse isn’t a hard problem, it’s just one they don’t care about.
I’m so glad we let tech platforms eat the journalism industry.
Now, I can sit and watch a live stream of Notre Dame burning while YouTube’s fake news widget tells me about 9/11 for some reason.
Periodic reminder that the original Twitter for iPad was one of the best iPad app UIs ever released.

What Silicon Valley promised was the break-up of concentrated power.
What Silicon Valley gave us is greater concentration of power than ever.
Now five companies control America, instead of 100. And a lot of those companies are whiter and more male than the ones they disrupted. [twitter.com]
The best video of a chimpanzee using Instagram that you will see today.
🤡 Cool thing I just found out is possible in HTML. No practical use, just fun.
You can see color-shift as soon as you push beyond the slightest touch. I checked two different iPad Minis in case it was a fluke. I’d accept that on a 200€ Android tablet; no way I’m paying 600€ for the experience.
