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 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


Sat, 16 Sep 2017 23:59:59 +0200 as a REAL TLD is coming and oh god I have to get out of the habit of using it locally 😨😨😨 [] @Viran_:Bonjour, aujourd'hui c'est la journée internationale du panda roux @Helgesonart:Here's a #tutorial /Step-By-Step of the latest illustration, because people seem to like these :D Same process as usual :) That upper-left corner was a right pain in the ass @Moristico: Instagram displays a small (probably too discreet, even) prompt to use the share functionality when you screenshot a post 👍👍👍 Three years too late, it looks like iOS 11 finally keeps third-party keyboards in memory after their first load. 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 😩

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). Why is the Siri watch face’s weather display so much better designed than the modular face’s

@RickyHelgesson:What if the new iPhone tracks your face to project the right part of wide-fov video on screen, you'd percieve it 100 % see-through #arkit Le mal qu’ils se sont donnés pour faire un truc aussi merdique que Seven Sisters 🤦🏻‍♂️ @stroughtonsmith:iPhone X's fluid multitasking UI is /very/ webOS, just w/ more physics. Shame existing iPhones won't get it; going to feel very different @Bouletcorp:Ceci est une vraie publicité pour de la glace (via @io9 )[] “The Internet of Things: A return to feudalism?” @computertales:A presentation of the PDP-11/45 used in 1976 to create the Death Star CGI in StarWars[]#retrocomputing #retrocgi @ironicsans:I can’t unsee. #iPhoneHairline Why would you (seemingly) force the red crown on everyone who buys the LTE Watch? 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)

Machine learning means the fucking Guardian rehabilitating fucking phrenology in fucking 2017 Obvs the only thing you can determine from a dating website is that different cohorts emphasize different traits in their profile photos. @katecrawford:Meanwhile, a new attack uses ultrasonic commands to make Siri Alexa do anything, but no human can hear it. [] I’ve had a tab open on Farming Simulator’s Steam page since it went -50% six hours ago and I don’t knowwwwww. @ProfDaveAndress:This is a very important general point: people are far too inclined to believe that a crisis averted was never a crisis at all. @MeredithFrost:Fantastic entries from the 2017 Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards [] It’s time to manage expectations by leaking to WSJ, and this one isn’t pretty I still say iPhone X needs to start at $1500 if there are “extended supply shortfalls,” so people can accept buying the second-best instead. But apparently the WSJ leak doesn’t include any pricing info so I guess it really goes for $999 and Apple will sell 100,000 iPhones per month this year. “RED finally reveals what its 'holographic' phone screen actually is”I’ll believe it when I see it. Le mec incrustait la tête d’un surfer anglais dans des photos de guerre et personne n’a rien vu pendant trois ans 👍 Only now figured out what bothered me with Killjoys’ season 3: the worlds-ending stakes are a total mismatch for the show’s overall tone. Killjoys probably thinks it’s Buffy in space, but Buffy was quippy-funny whereas Killjoys is more silly-funny.
