I love macOS and iOS. And I used to be excited every year for WWDC to see the new features and APIs.
In recent years though WWDC worries me more than excites.
“How much control will Apple taken away this year? What will no longer be possible? What’s been locked down this year?”
I made a little app that lets you bring your doodles into AR, inspired by that old camcorder feature!
First attempt at removing cars off the roads with neural nets. Will have to dream harder.
I guess they decided that, since the case couldn’t be as small and convenient as the AirPods’, they might as well make it three times as big as strictly necessary?
Facebook continues to view life as a perpetually cheery existence filled with highs and devoid of lows.
This is not how it works in the real world.
Thankfully all my favorite photo-editing apps are still iOS-only.
I keep wondering how much of my AirPods’ battery wear has been caused by the fast-charge functionality that I’ve only taken advantage of, like, twice in the past year.
this demo from Google I/O is literal dark magic holy shit
Did iOS 12.3 remove the ability to swipe left on a lock-screen notification? Haven’t seen anyone mention it (it won’t be missed, then). Makes sense as non-3D Touch devices emulate it with long-press.
I’m glad I no longer have to think about where I’m swiping to access the camera.
I can’t believe what I’m seeing! While running a facial recognition pilot, one man (understandably imho) covered himself up. The police forced him to show his face (& then fined him for disorderly conduct). This is dangerous & terrifying.
Just noticed that the Signal app has added a “Note to Self” pseudo-conversation and it’s such a great and simple idea, why doesn’t every chat app have this?
Google hiding the ad label a little further.
Next step light grey?
The “Not-eReader” looks very interesting; I can’t wait to read reviews.
SpaceX just launched 60 new satellites, which have been spotted as a chain of bright lights across the sky. As more are launched and orbits change, this could be a very big problem for ground-based astronomy. Musk’s offhand “they can’t be seen at night” is not true or reassuring. [twitter.com]
