Also, they kind of have to do something else because clicking a tiny power button to authorize a purchase makes no sense at all on iPad. (Unless that mysterious cutout on the back really is a fingerprint sensor)

Authorizing purchases is incredibly important and it’s the only area where the X is a legitimate downgrade from its predecessors - with the benefit of a year of additional design time I really hope they’ll do better here.

TIL that (NS)Operation.isReady and .isExecuting/.isFinished are not exclusive states.
• isReady remains true while the operation is executing or finished.
• isReady is only false while the operation is waiting for dependencies to finish.

Apple wants developers to move to subscriptions. Three problems that I see right away:

1) implementation of subscriptions is A LOT OF WORK… esp. for indie developers.

2) based on feedback, most customers DON’T want it

3) it doesn’t make sense for all kinds of apps.

Church, Clericalism, Corruption
Ezra Pound, the American poet, once wrote of the Catholic Church: “Any institution that could survive the picturesqueness of the Borgias has a certain native resilience.” we should follow Dr. Johnson’s advice to “clear your mind of cant.” It’s cant, he told Boswell, when we say things not quite true in public: “You may talk in this manner; it is a mode of talking in Society; but don’t think foolishly.”here are three “Cs” in our discussions about the abuse crisis that must be cleared of cant: the Church, clericalism, and corruption.It’s cant, in my view, when we say “the Church” failed in handling abuse. Still worse, that “we’re all responsible.” The “Church” did not fail. Specific individuals committed specific acts.Second “C”: we can postpone the discussion of clericalism without great loss. After what’s happened, if you think people are going to be excessively deferential toward priests, bishops, archbishops, cardinals, and popes: clear your mind of cant.In fact, we’ll probably see the opposite...the dangers of the monsignori getting too much deference now is cant, and a diversion from the main thing.Third “C”: Yes, we may have to talk of corruption when we discuss abuse in public, but that’s a primarily secular term. The current abuse crisis, among other things, is also – to use a Catholic term – simony. Fr. Marcel Maciel and ex-Cardinal McCarrick were “great fundraisers” for various causes. But they were also evil geniuses in using the money they raised to buy themselves friends, even in Rome.In Dante, the Simoniacs, in case you were wondering, include several popes. And their punishment, in case you were also wondering, is to be stuffed head down in a hole in solid rock while flames lick the soles of their feet. Since their “priorities” – as we might say today – were upside down, the fire of the Holy Spirit does not inspire their heads and hearts, but burns them at the opposite end

The Frog Prince - a McShep Fairy Tale - neevebrody - Stargate Atlantis [Archive of Our Own]
The King and Queen knew when the time came, they would have no trouble finding suitable mates for their daughters, but they were concerned for the young Prince. He was fast approaching the age of manhood and all attempts to train him in proper etiquette and the protocols of court were met with petulant silence or fits of ranting and logical elucidation.

The Death Of Richard Sipe | The American Conservative
Sipe is talking about the clerical sexual underground — homosexual and heterosexual — and how it is impossible to separate the sexual abuse of children and minors from the general sexual corruption among bishops and priests. One leads to the other. This is a conclusion that the mainstream media, for all the years I have been writing about this issue, has refused to consider — because, I believe, journalists do not want to look clearly at the widespread gay sexual networks.
