I thought it was a good interview, Phil's got a great sense of humor:Gruber: did the video stay up?Audience member: No!Phil: It's hard to do right.He's a lot better when he has someone to play off and he seemed really relaxed. When he presents on his own during events, there isn't enough opportunity to introduce humor into what he's saying.His answers didn't sound scripted to me but he's a marketing guy through and through so it'll sound like it to some people. He'd be...
Steve Jobs said 2015 for a moving-in date (18:00):In 2011, he said they wanted to break ground in 2012 and move in 2015. It's not Apple's operation though, when do builders ever complete things on schedule, especially something of this scale?That was reported a while ago:http://www.bloomberg.com/bw/articles/2013-04-04/apples-campus-2-shapes-up-as-an-investor-relations-nightmare"Since 2011, the budget for Appleā€™s Campus 2 has ballooned from less than $3 billion to nearly $5...
Yeah, Objective-C isn't as nice to look at:They should rename that one Comic Sans Francisco.As an air hostess I agree but as a fireman I prefer Helvetica Neue. San Francisco leaves too much space between letters:It makes sense on the Watch as the screen is tiny but it's not needed on the iPhone and iPad. I'd have preferred them to leave Helevtica Neue (or a cleaned up variation) on OS X and iOS and just keep San Francisco on the Watch.It'll be easy to adapt to but they...
Surely if you're hitting mucus you're just reaching in too far. Yeah I'll leave it at that.Now we're talking. Add an exercise loop for that and I'll have it done before breakfast.It can track this automatically:
They're more convenient bookmarks. Features like these are designed around common behavior. I often find that I want to read a web page later on but wouldn't bookmark it because I consider bookmarks to be more permanent. So I'd instead leave the page open. This way it's easy to quickly slide a tab over and quickly remove it once it's read.The audio mute feature should have been done a long time ago, that stupid smiley Flash advert that would shout out was such a nuisance...
The reasons against it were just about readability at lower sizes and that it's used everywhere but it (or similar variations, mostly Arial) is used all over the entire internet so it being used everywhere is hardly a negative unless the entire internet should now change too. The complaints weren't about its aesthetic. I think it would be nice if they'd round out the curves to be more circular even if they only do it at larger font sizes - it gives more room compressing it...
Games developers would be using SDKs. That makes it easier because they handle the lower-level code:https://wiki.unrealengine.com/Metal_Rendering_APIhttp://blogs.unity3d.com/2014/07/03/metal-a-new-graphics-api-for-ios-8/Unity says they have the largest marketshare:https://unity3d.com/public-relationsSome bigger developers have their own engines but they have the resources to support other APIs like Metal. Frostbite (proprietary to EA) for example was shown using...
The letter shapes are similar with minor changes but there's differences in the kerning (letter spacing). Someone switched OS X over here:Helvetica Neue:San Francisco:http://gizmodo.com/helvetica-is-the-worst-change-your-yosemite-font-to-sa-1668350413If you look at the letter 'o', 'c' and 'e', you can see Helvetica Neue has a very circular shape but in San Francisco, it is squashed horizontally. I liked the rounded one better but if you scale up a round shape and...
Angela Ahrendts isn't a great presenter but the women they had presenting did a great job. It's nice to see some of the other faces that work at Apple. They've probably stuck to the same execs in the past because the hardware and software being shown off weren't from departments that were headed up by other employees but moving into new areas like Apple Pay allows different staff to come forward.I thought the whole event was one of the best they've ever done. Everybody in...
http://www.avclub.com/article/new-study-shows-people-stop-listening-new-music-33-218752Just like with fashion, people reach an age where they aren't trying to figure themselves out nor trying to impress other people. You know you've reached the age with music when you stop recognising the names of popular musicians.Discovery is important for everyone though because at some point everyone has to discover the music that exists in their collection and there will be music out...
