I’m going to WWDC 19! Hopefully there’ll once again be a microblogger meet? They’ve been fun in previous years…
Doing app store releases in a company set up for big platform releases you get to experience the best of two worlds. The uncertainty of Apple’s review process, combined with the ball and chains of inscrutable platform release procedures. #NotAgile
I have successfully escaped the snowpocalypse. Currently changing the Panic sign in Portland.
Rushing to Portland in a vain attempt to avoid Seattle’s snowmageddon.
Despite spending the weekend at PodCon I could still handle one more podcast event this week. Live recording of @glennf’s The New Disruptors at Ada’s Technical Books & Café.
Hey podcast fans, anyone else going to PodCon in Seattle this weekend?
Are there any good how-tos on how to sign a Mac app installer package (.pkg) to avoid the macOS Gatekeeper’s “can’t be opened because it is from an unidentified developer” warning?
Preparing breakfast at 14:00… I do love taking it slow on a day off.
I came up with a game concept today. Please tell me if it sucks, has already been done, or if perhaps it would be worthwhile trying to implement. — Young woman locked in tower uses the distractions of a prince’s bumbling rescue attempts to sneak out of her luxury tower prison room and mount her escape down the many levels of the tower.
On reaching her freedom she hops on the prince’s abandoned stallion and finds herself with a decision to make. Does she ride off to her freedom, or try to rescue the vast number of princes who have been incarcerated in the cellar dungeons after failing to rescue her? (Yay, extra levels!)
Configuring new build machines for the office. Thank you Apple for keeping HDMI and USB-A ports on the new Mac Minis for BYOKDM purposes. No need to buy dongles 🙌🏼
Does anyone know what the Chinese voicemails I endlessly receive on my phone are about? I can’t be the only one who gets them, right?
So 🤬 frustrated with Apple’s Mac App Store review process right now. Trying to put an enterprise business application in the app store their rejection wording is so vague it sounds like they for whatever reason think it contains in-game-currencies 🤯
Thank Jobs we have the fallback option of distributing it outside the app store on the Mac.
I wonder if solar powered electric airships/dirigibles are feasible. I’ve always wanted to cross The Atlantic on a zeppelin, and if airplane pollution is going to be priced in in the future perhaps a slower but cleaner way can be competitive?
Yes, I dressed up as a Pantone color for Halloween… #KeepingItSimple
On the new episode of The Weekly Review @macgenie mentioned the frustration of spammy people “checking back”; On that note, I thought the order in which I received these emails from a Facebook “person” was funny. Perhaps their algorithm isn’t all it’s cracked up to be?
Being an industrial design enthusiast I’m very much looking forward to the screening of Rams tonight at the Egyptian theatre in Seattle. Apparently there’s still tickets available for the late showing. www.hustwit.com/rams/
Apple just sent me a survey about my experiences with my Touch Bar MacBook Pro.
I spent way too long telling them about all my gripes about the keyboard’s arrow keys layout, lack of physical Escape key, and accidental Touch Bar touches triggering Siri 😏
For National Drive Electric Week I’m road tripping from Seattle to Denver and back. Made it to Boise in the first day.
I want, and am willing to pay a premium for, a smaller version of iPhone X. Instead Apple actually dropped the iPhone SE from the lineup to only sell Android-sized monsters? 🤬😡🤯😳😭
Fingers crossed for an updated iPhone SE 🤞🏻 #AppleEvent
This three page internal Xerox memorandum about why it may be a good idea to build a couple of networked computing machines called Alto is a good read. I especially enjoy page 3 discussing something called Personal Computing. history-computer.com/Library/A…
While literally true, this Wired headline is a good example of focusing on Tesla for clicks while not reflecting the full story: Hackers Can Steal a Tesla Model S in Seconds By Cloning Its Key Fob
Facts from the article: Any manufacturers using the same third party key fob system would be vulnerable to this attack. Tesla has fixed the issue by pushing software updates over-the-air to cars and offering replacement key fobs with stronger encryption. Other manufacturers remain unpatched and suggest customers keep their key fobs in Faraday cages.
My beloved iPhone 4 was coming apart so I replaced its swollen battery. It was a very simple procedure. www.theevilboss.com/blog/2018…
Fantastic story from Wired about how NotPetya, a piece of malware, crashed networks all over the world www.wired.com/story/not…
Seattle now at 5x worse air quality index than Beijing 😷 ♫ Blame Canada ♫ #Wildfires
