My first Heat Signature character was soon “captured” (with a bullet, there was a lot of blood everywhere, but okay sure it’s sci-fi). My second character’s life goal slash loyalty mission is to free the first, who was his life partner, so basically I’ve been guilt-tripped into playing the game forever* now, well done. Actually, now that I’m writing this, I’m curious what happens when I "kill" the second character — does the chain end, or were they poly?

Ann Leckie, Ancillary Justice

Mon, 18 Sep 2017 11:56:01 +0200

Ann Leckie, Ancillary Justice — 7/10 There is a scene, one third of the way into Ancillary Justice, where the protagonist and narrator explains her goals and motivations to another character. That scene takes place off-page, and the reader will only begin to learn that information another hundred pages later. This is only the most egregious example; there are tons of details that the author only explains fifty pages too late. I've read a lot of science-fiction and I'm perfectly fine with the "figure it out yourself" style of world-building, but this is different — this is trying to be Lost or Westworld, deliberate opaque, ostensibly hiding things from the audience. And that's fine on TV but it doesn't work at all, for me, in a book told in the first person; that just makes the narrator incredibly obnoxious. Still, the book and its story are pretty clever, you have to love how much attention it pays to subtext and subtly expressed emotions, and the portrayal of One Esk is well thought-out and interesting. But I don't remember ever being so annoyed at a book I couldn't put down.

I’m having issues in Tacoma with sounds voices going quieter the more directly I look at the source and can’t find any complaints online 😒 iPhone 8 vs 7 drop testThat protruding camera is definitely a structural weakness. But hey that's okay, a broken back is just cosmetic 😬👍 On iPhone 6, Control Center doesn’t respond to touch for a full second as the music widget struggles to find out the current track’s title. I keep forgetting that Titanfall 2 exists and is in my mind’s wishlist because it isn’t on Steam. Instagram Stories look so damn nice on a Plus. @ivanassen:Levels of programmer enlightenment:- my software is shit- all software is shit- everything is shit @sdw:iPhone 8 day 2: phone vibrated itself slightly off the center of the charging pad overnight, so it didn’t get a full charge. Splendid. @tapbot_paul:I hear the iPhone X also requires you do the hokey pokey and turn yourself around.

@LaurenGoode:Apple Watch’s new heart rate features won’t work on the original Watch model [] via @Verge Storyboards have existed for six years and I still can’t tell Interface Builder “this subview should segue into that subview” like in any UI prototyping app 😤 Safari 11 on Mac still beachballs for 30 seconds when loading a random news site in a background tab. Oh, I’d love not to use Chrome. Weird cognitive dissonance that I have a yay-new-toy but it isn’t more powerful than the old toy and doesn’t run all the new AR apps either. I don’t think Apple’s official battery life numbers take into account Unity games or poorly optimized apps, though @handsomeninja:Magnifique (et jetez pas vos kinects) : [] #motiondesign @DIA_Mitch:The next wave of RD spacial kinetic typography. No more fixed formats with AR VR Radiolab: Oliver Sipple 🏳️‍🌈 [TW] Goddammit I’d still rather finish Prey before I get Death of the Outsider but today’s Crate Crowbar is weakening my resolve. Oh, well, that’s was just answered in the podcast — I don’t need to kill the poor guy now. Using a Plus is renewing my annoyance at the impossibility for an app to change what it displays on a 5.5” via Auto Layout size classes. @BrendanSinclair:PUBG-Fortnite thing is sorta like Threes-2048, but if Threes devs already had to give the cloners a cut of their money in the first place @hodapp:UPS guy just mentioned he’d made “almost no” Apple deliveries today- Says it’s odd as last year his truck was totally full of iPhone 7’s. @orinoxide:Randomly remembered that "lunarcore" is a fashion aesthetic that exists.

Check out Forza going after the Euro Truck Simulator crowd 😁 Did Google refuse to buy all of HTC or does HTC really think it has a chance to survive with just VR? I mean one billion dollars must be a decent runway but there’s no future in historically being the first company to ship Valve’s technology. @stroughtonsmith:Fascinating to see all this running on iOS @videocats:Seeing a huge seagull on the roof left him in a state of shock Good old App Review being App Review I mean you can clearly see how this looks too useful and well designed to be approved #obviously WTF, Siri hadn’t been stupid about this for several iOS versions (only one of these is actually enabled) Looks like that’s because I set the alarm on the Watch, so it was Watch-only (that wasn’t the case before, was it?), so Siri didn’t see it. I suppose I ought to push an unmodified update to Music Rating Widget because some people won’t buy it without a september 2017 build date. I bought a Series -2 😁 (and I like it unironically, although it’s a little too large for my wrist) @NathanJLiu: Swapped iPhones with a friend, my 6 for his 6 Plus, and why did I resist the Plus form factor for so long? It’s so roomy! Isle of Dogs @Pentadact:HEAT SIGNATURE IS OUTBreak into spaceships!By the Gunpoint devs!Buy! []RT pls?New trailer! [] @directhex:Technophobes: “computers are barely working magic”Nerds: “computers do as they’re told”Elder nerds: “computers are barely working magic” [] Never been double-rejected before—because of “Free” in the name (knew the risk) and old unused icon-Default.png not matching App Store icon. Why does iOS 11's lock screen screw up iOS 11's new backgrounds? This absurd transition effect irks me every time I turn on my iPhone.

@rmondello:You can automatically use Safari Reader on some or all websites in Safari 11. Hold-tap or right click on the Reader button to turn this on. @benz145:Biggest stealth change in iOS 11 is that the Camera app can now read QR codes.

Shame that Apple doesn’t let this happen on iPhone where I’d be likely to use it @mattgemmell:The strange thing about iOS 11 on the iPad is that it makes the iPhone feel like it's a version behind. @_TheSeaning:Jupiter, @NASAJuno Perijove 08 [G.Eichstadt] @LeighFletcher Full HD: [] [] “The iPhone 8 is a look into the augmented future of photography” WhaaatThere’s finally a reason to prune my Watch’s list of installed apps.

“3D Face Reconstruction from a Single Image”Machine learning is unstoppable. @pgor:BEFORE UPDATING TO IOS 11: Go to “Settings General About Applications”. Verify you can live without incompatible apps listed there. The colossi look fine but everything about the environments feels like uprezzed last-gen, if that 🙁 Weird that Apple seemed to have gorgeous copper-colored prototypes and ended up going with uncooked chicken @9to5mac:iPhone 8 and X support pad-free wireless charging, third-party distance charger on the way [] Warming up to the idea of buying an iPhone 8, and I guess I could consider the Plus form factor this time? Especially considering that my iPad mini is as old as my iPhone 6, but with no likely replacement in sight 😔 Reopening an old project 😵 Currently updating an app exactly one year too late, since the last few dozen users have all uninstalled it by now Does Xcode’s “Convert to ARC” detect possible retain cycles? Because if it doesn’t… I sure as hell aren’t gonna. 🤷🏻‍♂️ “Use @available to silence this warning”The syntax for @available is ungooglable and I can’t find it in the docs 😒

I don’t need an iPhone X, I just want a jailbreak tweak on my iPhone to put rounded corners over every app. (Hashtag webOS.) Why isn’t ‘Smart Invert’ in the Control Center? Why does iOS 11 make it customizable but only offer the bare minimum of options? @sproutella:UHH DIVINITY ORIGINAL SIN 2 HAS ONE OF THE COOLEST FEATURES I'VE EVER SEEN IN CHARACTER CREATION Looks like you can have your app respond gracefully to ‘Smart Invert’ but not the launch screen? For now at least. @dhh:"Works a lot ≠ has good work ethic". Fuck 70+ hour work weeks as some sort of noble quality. [] Je suis en train de rénover mon portfolio et, paf, j’ai envie de refaire une version compatible iOS 11 de Tarot Royal 🤦🏻‍♂️ The Room (2012) Personne ne m’a prévenu, vous servez à rien

I don’t think I would have liked Scanner Sombre much as a flat game, but it makes for an excellent VR experience. @theferocity:Hello, somebody. Look what I'm doing instead of working for real money 😩


Fri, 15 Sep 2017 23:59:59 +0200

Good news: @uniconsole only requires a tiny fix. Bad news: the app doesn’t use Auto Layout so I have no idea how to handle that fix 😬 Xcode 9 doesn’t want to connect to my iPhone and the simulators don’t seem to support Dark Mode / Smart Invert. Oh well, maybe next time. @TristanACooper:finally figured out what mario odyssey reminds me of @KeithKrimbel:E-mailed #CraigFederighi about #FaceID and actually got a response! App Review hasn’t become any less silly while I wasn’t making apps. Apple’s docs now store language choice in the URL instead of a cookie 🙄 so a Google search will always send you to the default Swift 😠 @MoneerElmasseek:So Roald Dahl originally wrote Charlie as young black boy but his agent told him not to because "people would ask why". Such a shame. [] @flyosity:The S8 family of phones with the infinity edge screen simply look more futuristic than the iPhone X. @toggleModal:I just witnessed a murder

Avec ces conneries d’être impatient que le keynote Apple arrive, on est déjà jeudi 😨 @ow:IKEA's Augmented Reality app is such a great demo of ARKit. Going to be huge (and avoid awkward furniture mistakes) @KrysaliaH:[] Haha : ils ont créé une pièce de 50ct géante pour la poser à côté d'objets normaux photographiés en tilt shift :D ! @chrismasterson:Apple: Embrace the notch! Black bars would waste valuable screen real estate.Also Apple: @drdrang:Google Earth is a little behind, but it captures the Steve Jobs Theatre at an interesting stage of construction. I haven’t used Xcode in a while and OMFG how about you remove the fucking xattrs yourself if you know where they are Remember when they finally updated Control Center so you could change the brightness while seeing what it would look like in the active app? And I love how you can customize Control Center for quick access to anything you like except the only way to toggle Night Shift is now a compulsory long press. I can’t wait for machine learning to be able to censor memes I’m tired of seeing. Eek yeah okay good bye IPAs (FYI the new iTunes won’t automatically delete them, which is reasonable in case you still want them) If I play Death of the Outsider now I will definitely never ever finish Prey. (Instead of the 50/50 chance it currently stands at.) @eurogamer:Psychonauts is absolutely free on PC right now, over at the @humble store, get a copy now - [] No roaming on Apple Watch, even in EuropeCould it be a technical limitation of the virtual SIM card? Actually the eSIM is not really virtual at all; it’s just rewritable (and tiny) The iPhone X doesn’t just require apps to be updated, but also every single website that isn’t on a white background @joshuafry:1984, 1997, 2017 @KristenMcTighe:Nikon creates team of 32 professional photographers to be the faces of Nikon D850- picks not a single woman. #2017[] Every time I have to update my apps for a new iOS version it’s a unpleasant reminder that I used to consider myself an app developer. Why. Do I. Always make. Complex. Unmaintanable. Interfaces. I can’t be bothered to fine-tune the location of the buttons and app title, but at least the notch looks fine on a textured background Why do you still ask me to enter separate version + build numbers only to throw an error afterwards if they differ

@Snowden:#FaceID Good: Design looks surprisingly robust, already has a panic disable.Bad: Normalizes facial scanning, a tech certain to be abused. @stroughtonsmith:Wow they really are stripping things out of iTunes. Never expected to see that @thomasfuchs:iPhone X renders webpages with literal white bars on the sides @laen:Apple Touch Bar == I have a band-aid on my finger and can't hit escape anymore. @ForkParker:Looking forward to people that buy a $1,000 iPhone telling me it's terrible to charge $2.99 for a game on the App Store. @maxrudberg:This was my reaction to the Apple Maps UI as well. Double grabber looks odd. [] @stroughtonsmith:The iPhone X home indicator isn't a solid color; it actually adapts in realtime to the content beneath it (a luma dodge effect) @vojtastavik:I think I’ve fixed the notch issue in landscape 🍾 #iphoneX @valentinsocha:Voilà. #iPhoneX I should be working but instead I’m finally installing iOS 11 because the urge to have something new is irresistible post-keynote. Even though both of my devices are just the right age to receive the new iOS and be made worse by installing it. But it’s not like we have a choice when Apple won’t sign iOS 10, let alone push iOS 10 security updates, on devices compatible with iOS 11 😒 I was skeptical about Face ID but Apple’s implementation convinced me. (Kinect in a phone!)I was cautiously optimistic about the notch but Apple’s implementation disgusts me.😖 As is customary, enjoying my MBP being unusable for half an hour Three ‘Update’ buttons per screenful @goodmanw:Harrison Ford, giving more context on punching Ryan Gosling: [] Onward Free WeekendI’m curious how long I can play this (both in terms of locomotion and shooting realistic humans in VR).

Does the virtual SIM really take dedicated silicon space instead of being just software? I would have expected the LTE model to be about $100 more. Being on a Series 0 I’m possibly curious about upgrading. With an A10X the Apple TV could really offer some serious gaming experiences. If anyone ever bought it for that. I miss the original iPhone’s announcement like I miss a first hit of heroin. Non-Plus iPhone 8 still doesn’t have the twin cameras 😠 It’s completely absurd that they worked so much on iPhone 8 only to immediately supplant it with iPhone X. A simple 7s upgrade would have made sense; not a completely redesign. Apple using an open standard for wireless charging? Am I dreaming? @benthompson:I miss 'Slide to Unlock' 😥 Did not expect for a second Face ID to include Kinect. In a tiny phone. 😮 Interesting to see Schiller acknowledge outright that Face ID won’t work for twins, when Microsoft’s face recognition has been touted as differentiating them in most cases. (Of course, "most cases" is problematically vague.) “Look at it, swipe up” doesn’t really sound like it’s simpler and quicker than pressing the Home button, does it. Really curious to see if anyone buys an iPhone before iPhone X is available. I’ll say it again, this launch seems completely crazy to me. @twostraws:Watch now! 14 new developer videos released by Apple, teaching iPhone X, face tracking, and more: [] #swiftlang @doney:WTF we’re not even allowed to resist [] It bums me out that I’m probably gonna have to update some of my apps to accommodate the stupid notch on the stupid 1200€ phone. Of all the iPhone X design choices I disagree with, the one I don’t understand is why make it so tall. You’re redefining the iPhone from scratch; why cling to the external aspect ratio instead of making the device easier to handle? @mpesce:Given the integration I'm seeing, I'd have to say yes, Facebook will be able to read your face gestures while you read your newsfeed. This should be fun (hello Fire Phone)
