I’m not only impressed by the apology (even if it seems a little unnecessary) but also by the train scheduling.
I love how the robot sticks the landing at the end.
I haven’t always agreed with Apple’s (and therefore, Ive’s) design decision but I always enjoy hearing from Ive and parsing out how his sometimes veiled explanations of his design philosophy informs Apple’s products.
As Apple says, “With iPad Pro + iOS 11, a post-PC world may be closer than you think.” Brilliant.
I’m still a big fan of RSS.
This is one of those things we Canadians have always held up as a reason why Canada is better than the US. We’ll have to find something else now.
Apple Watch saves the day.
Uncrate: Emirates unveiled its new first class suites for its Boeing 777 and the amenities surpass most luxury hotels. Inspired by the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, each zero-gravity seat is enclosed in its own cabin with floor-to-ceiling sliding doors for complete privacy. … Continued
This is one of those videos that showed me the power of the internet. I still remember seeing this decades ago in a tiny QuickTime window and marveling at the fact that I could watch it on this “internet thing”.
I also marveled at the fact people could be so stupid as to think they could blow up a whale carcass.
Fubiz: Reinhard Görner is a German photographer specializing in architecture and the fine arts. For the photographic series “Libraries”, he travels across Europe to capture the solemnity of the libraries of the Old Continent. From Madrid to Stuttgart, passing through … Continued
This is pretty cool but, for the majority of us, our opposite point will be in an ocean.
No, this won’t tell you definitively when your camera’s shutter will fail but it might help to know how many actuations your DSLR has done. It’s also helpful for those who buy used bodies to find out how much wear and tear there may be on the shutter mechanism.
I know developers are of two minds – it is a Darwinian pressure cooker attempting to satisfy all of Apple’s demands and to be better than a dozen other developers, some of them your friends, who are all trying to do the same thing. But, on the other hand, it’s the kind of jumpstart a small company craves.
My weekend just might be spent watching “The Littlest Hobo” reruns.
I don’t know why I find this so amusing.
“The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald” is a beautifully tragic song from Canadian songwriting legend Gordon Lightfoot.
I predicted Matchbox Cars and Risk would be inducted. I demand an immediate recount.
This certainly won’t stop scammers and will take more time than simply deleting the email but it might give you a small measure of satisfaction.
I’ve played the first couple of levels of the game and it seems pretty simplistic. If it weren’t for the research goals behind it, I don’t think I’d actually play it through to the end but it’s for a great cause so I’ll definitely play a few rounds each day.
One of the highlights of going to Macworld Expo each year in San Francisco was our drive to Cupertino to the Apple Employee Store to see what kind of cool swag we could score. I hope the new Visitor Center is just as exciting.
Not generally a fan of hour-long dramas but I love Aniston and will watch just to see her back on TV.
Twitter says it probably won’t affect your timeline much but that depends entirely on who you follow. I expect my timeline will explode in size.
Sadly, I’m in the market for glasses but dread going in to a store to try them on. This might resolve that pain point for me.
Feel free to send me money as a test.
For many of us, this article will be a wistful trip down memory lane. For many more of you, it will invoke pity of those of us old enough to have used a PalmPilot.
I love stories of the mysteries of our universe but equally fascinating to me are stories of how we design and build the devices that let us discover those mysteries.
Whether we like them or not, Apple is going to do app store subscriptions. How app developers implement it and use it will be very interesting.
I’ve been a user and fan of iMazing for a long time. These new features are welcome to those of us who still want to manage our iPhones from our Macs.
CNET: I took our Space Gray iPhone X out to the sidewalk in front of CNET’s San Francisco offices: a place where many screens have met their doom. Is it just me or are these kinds of “tests” utterly ridiculous? … Continued
