Yesterday was very disturbing. I’ll delve into details later this week, but I have to pop this out first.
Take a look at this. I won’t talk about how ugly this is, I’ll just say that this is ugly because it looks like a low-taste Android watch.
Its background is black; Apple says they invented a new typeface for this (apparent in the Apple Watch logo too) for improved legibility. This is the same reason why Google introduced a redesign for Roboto, their font for mobile. It’s more legible. That we get. But it’s ugly. Do you get it?
Roboto is ugly; on black, it’s uglier.
Apple just turned up with a watch with black background and an ugly font that feels like Roboto. That’s why we hate the Android watches, and that’s why this Apple Watch is disturbing and unapple-y.Comments
Another new major release, another feature removal on Mobile Safari. This one is pretty disturbing though. With iOS 7.1, Apple had added the
minimal-ui viewport property, which let developers hide as much Safari Chrome as possible; effectively to the size when you scrolled them out of view.
Now of course, this gave developers a lot of screen real estate. And here today Apple releases iOS 8 GM version, which is the same as the final version to be released next week; and they remove
It’s hard to understand why they remove such a nice feature for web apps this soon, when they just released it a few months earlier.Comments
Every moment we experience leaves a permanent imprint on our brains. Shaping how we perceive things and people in the future. It’s called implicit memory and it’s constantly reminding us to be careful. Who can we trust? When are we safe? And what are we capable of?
Of course, there are benefits to a cautious approach to life. Helps us to avoid the things that make us unhappy or sick. Or put us in danger. But there’s one danger that our implicit memory can’t help us with. And that’s the danger that our biases can prevent us from seeing things as they really are.

Google’s exact search is broken. It will parse “(?:button)input)$” however it wishes, and incorporate meaningless results.
I don’t know for how long this was the case but it’s quite useless.Comments
The keynote is just over. I was so overwhelmed by the new gems in OS X Yosemite, the new developer APIs and services just took my breath away.
The biggest take-away was Swift, a new language Apple put in place of Objective-C which was the de facto standard of native applications up until now.
Update: Here’s the link to the extensive book about Swift. It looks so much like a mishmash of Go and ES6, I only wish the effort was spent on the latter.Comments
For the past two years, Zite has been an integral part of my life as I use it at least for half an hour every single day. It’s been a great resource of, well, resources for development. I’ve even been featured once with pedalboard.js.
But all good things must come to an end, I guess. I am a big Zite fan, I even built a web-based interface for Zite to read while I’m not on mobile.
I can’t believe how people think Zite is like Flipboard; it’s far more superior in every aspect. If Flipboard is Edison, Zite is Tesla. Yeah, I liked that analogy.
I’m really worried for the acquisition, as I know nothing good ever comes out of one. I’m glad that, apparently, Mike Klaas is joining Flipboard, but hey; I really dislike Flipboard. It’s a piece of crap compared to Zite, and I find it shameful for such a great product (Zite) being acquired by a such a pompous product (Flipboard). But that’s how marketing goes, I guess.
I will use Zite for the rest of its lifetime, and hope to find all its greatest features in Flipboard. Maybe then I can like it.Comments
Anonim turkuler acik kaynak dunyasinin en guzel ornekleridir. Bilginin, kulturun, kalitenin paylastikca arttiginin gostergesi; sahipligin, tekelin, mulkun temelsiz ve basarisiz oldugunun kanitidir.
Acik kaynakli seyler yuzlerce yil yasar, el degistirir, buyur ve herkes kendinden bir seyler katarak yogurur. Basarisinin ve kaliciliginin sebebi budur.
Ticari kaygilarla; ustunluk kurmak, guc elde etmek icin yapilan girisimler eninde sonunda batmaya, unutulmaya mahkumdur.Comments
