I can explain this. The heuristics that make Reader work have two parts:
1. Given a page in a moment in time, what’s the Reader content?
2. When during page load should it check for (1)?

Refreshing the page affects 2, because more content is cached. https://t.co/fPG5GR2RuC

Number of devices in use: Roku vs. other OTT platforms

Roku with 41 million devices. This differs from active account if someone isn't active in the past month or someone has multiple devices. https://t.co/qK3sj2tMx4 pic.twitter.com/r62uB1GdSp

A quick story.

The other day, my human wife bought me a bouquet of orange roses, because I am a handsome devil and deserve many flowers.

She brought them home, only to see the bouquet of orange roses that I had bought her already in the vase.

If it were up to me, 4 would be the minimum number of ports that any Apple laptop had.

Even the old 11-inch Air could connect to power, 2 USB devices, and a Thunderbolt device at the same time.

Since we lose one to power today, 2-port is effectively 1-port. Not good enough. https://t.co/uYqTTTesSt

They weren't unnecessary. They weren't superfluous. They were all delightful details, and each one also served a useful function.

(Even the glowing logo! You could tell if the screen was erroneously on when it was closed.)

Little niceties I'd love to see return to Apple's laptops, independent of any particular spec nitpicks of each era:

- charging/charged LED on power cable
- cable-management solution on power brick
- charge-level indicator button/LEDs
- "breathing" sleep LED
- glowing Apple logo

It's a feature that's in almost every USB battery today.

It would still be useful today to know the charge level of your laptop without opening it!

I don't really have an opinion on this story, but you know what I miss? This battery-level feature on pre-Retina Apple laptops.

(For those unfamiliar: It's a button and a row of tiny LEDs. Push the button, and the LEDs indicate the battery charge level.)https://t.co/VwWIXyDGbw pic.twitter.com/G3gF6CBJbW

File pinning, another new Files feature that let you keep certain files always offine, has also been pulled in iOS 13 beta 6. Sounds like iCloud Drive is going through some major changes still in this beta season. https://t.co/AupGorPRD5

As an App Store developer, I don't understand how Apple gets away legally with providing little or no financial documentation to developers.

Anything I do that requires documenting my income is a major problem.

I get more paperwork from Apple just renting a movie from iTunes!

Unifying your OSes means they become more dependent upon one another. From here on out, Apple ships major updates to all their platforms on the same day. That would be my guess.

dirty secret: most people/companies that say they're doing "machine learning" are really just creating parameterized models, using "training" data to optimize the parameters, and then using those optimal parameters to make "predictions"#DontBelieveTheHype

I really wish the Messages team at Apple would turn off the ability to add Tapbacks to SMS threads. This is ridiculous looking and confusing to everyone but the sender of the Tapback. pic.twitter.com/A0BxJNHsTa

Apple’s actually surpassed Windows now.

“I could turn him off, but then he wouldn’t protect anything”

macOS doesn’t ever have the option to turn these stupid alerts off. https://t.co/w9YAtzxrvE

Throwing this question out wider: how reliable is NSURLSession in the background configuration now a days? I remember Marco's pain and suffering years ago, but is it OK now a days? Is it truely "fire and forget"? How many edge cases?

It’s amazing how much damage Apple is inflicting on macOS.

They are flying macOS into a mountain. https://t.co/Ufms3XVAQU

Apple’s underinvestment in the iTunes U app is a tragedy. Yesterday, I wondered, “Is there an art app that can teach me everything about the Surrealist Movement?” It occurred to me to try iTunes U. There *is* a course, and I downloaded it, but the app is so hard to use!

I can’t remember a past iOS beta season with so many features pulled out of betas so late in the summer:
- Shortcut and HomeKit automation (coming back per release notes)
- Automatic ETA sharing in Maps
- Share ETA in CarPlay Maps
- Shared folders in iCloud Drive

Capabilities, a fantastic security concept.
Done completely wrong (c) @Apple.
What a mess.
How they managed to not take into account decades of research on that topic is mind-blowing.
